This weekend I joined an Otaku demonstration, probably the first Otaku demo ever. It was in Akihabara were around 1.000 otakus joined the march against otaku discrimination. They claimed respect from traditional media that sometimes treats otakus people in general as “criminals” and also the “liberation of Akihabara and otaku emancipation”. Lately many big department stores are conquering Akihabara, little shops are disappearing, and with them the “authentic Akihabara spirit” is also being destroyed.
Danny Choo joined the demo as Stormtrooper, try to find him in the pictures:
