Van Von Hunter, for those in the know, began it’s rise to fame in Tokyopop’s Rising Stars of Manga Competition. The series has then been serialized by Tokyopop with three volumes and continues on in newspaper serializations to this day. Now, there was a short “mockumentary” film created which apparently pleased the judges and won some awards in this years MockFest 2010.
Reminiscent of Otaku no Video, Van Von Hunter (the film), follows “the wacky story of newly unemployed evil-vanquisher who travels from his home in Dikay to an ill-fated gig in Hollywood, and eventually to Japan where he discovers anime, manga and otaku culture, becoming a famous hero. Hunter Fight-oh!”
