posted on by Egan Loo
On Tuesday, the North American publisher Vertical released Sayonara, Mr. Fatty: A Geek's Diet Memoir, a diet book written by Gainax co-founder and former president Toshio Okada. Okada earned the nickname "Otaking" for his deep roots in the Japanese science-fiction and anime geek circles and for even lecturing on "Otaku culture" at the University of Tokyo. Okada fought a well-publicized battle to lose weight in the past decade, and he details his struggle in this book.
