For the Otaku, their passion is their life, and it pervades every aspect. From cosplayers and colorful anime-covered vehicles, to hotrodders and leather-clad rockabillies: subcultures in Japan are as varied as they are fascinating. Delving into this world of passions, The Obsessed reveals the all-consuming approach that many people take to their hobbies and lifestyle choices. With dazzling photography and background information, this book showcases a panoply of scenes and people that make up Japan’s many countercultural groups.
