Misa and Kim are otaku, insanely dedicated anime fans. Misa is fearfully timid, an obsessive ero-manga collector. Kim is an egocentric cosplayer beauty-queen. While attending the year's biggest anime convention, both girls are pulled into a dark and twisted dimension. They face cosplaying demons, bloody games, and their own crazy issues. Misa and Kim will have to work together if they plan on surviving their stay in the Wicked World. Written and directed by Japanese artist Ayumi Tanaka, Wicked World Otaku is an original story inspired by classic Japanese pink films and b-movie slasher thrillers. It will stand as one of the sexiest, silliest survival-horror movies ever made. A lifelong otaku herself, Ayumi believes anime fandom is a hotbed of creative energy and enthusiastic support. It's the first full-length movie project to be featured, performed and filmed at an actual anime convention over the span of three short days. Ayumi sees the production of Wicked World Otaku as a creative triumph for everyone involved within the anime fan community. Once completed, Wicked World Otaku will be translated into several languages and screened at film festivals across the globe.
Misa is a hardcore collector of erotic manga. She seems timid and fearful in front of others. Deep down, Misa harbors resentment towards those she sees as smarter, prettier or more interesting than her. She wears the same Japanese schoolgirl outfit to every convention, always clutching her precious Kichibear™. What you think is innocence is actually pure hate.
Kim is a cosplay legend. Her beauty and confidence have gained her thousands of online followers. She's boastful, bossy and belittling to others. Kim knows she's a capital-B Bitch, but there's always a slight hesitation to her meanness. Deep within her, there's a kind mothering spirit that Kim is reluctant to accept. Her cosplay outfits are ravishingly intimidating to all who see her.
Lady Pinkswallow is the glamourously flamboyant host for the Wicked World Expo. She/he is also Queen Blacksigh's demonic deputy. Pinkswallow is elegantly murderous and deliciously over-dramatic. It's her job to ensure demon attendees are thoroughly entertained via the torture and suffering of human victims.
Queen Blacksigh holds absolute rule over the dark dimension known as Wicked World. Blacksigh is worshipped by all for both wisdom and cruelty. She personally chooses the human victims who are dragged down into Wicked World for bloody sport. She's regal in every sense of the word, a monstrous beauty dressed completely in black.
Mako is the ideal anime fan. She wears ripped jeans, a graphic tee and several cute accessories. she's funny, adorable and a pleasure to be around. Her joy is quirky and infectious. Everyone seems to know her throughout the convention, mostly because she's quick to make friends. Her innocence plays a key role in our story.
Sammy and Sammi are two handcuffed Sailorm**n cosplayers who were sucked into Wicked World. These hardened prisoners give Misa and Kim valuable advice before they meet their bloody fate. Their chemistry is evident for their brief time onscreen, but they represent the dreadful terror in store for Misa and Kim.
These panicked handcuffed cosplayers allow Lady Pinkswallow to demonstrate what happens when humans disobey demons.
These are 5 pairs of cosplaying girls who are unwilling participants in Wicked World's survival games. Each pair of handcuffed girls is determined to be the only pair to survive, even if it means murder.
These are the denizens of Wicked World, ancient spirits and demons who wait for that one recurring day when a doorway opens between the human realm and the Wicked World. They dress like cosplayers, but their masks hide the stuff of nightmares.
