IT’S WORLD OTAKU DAY!
HOW TOTALLY AWESOME! RIGHT?
Wrong… Because hardly anybody even knows about it and hardly anybody celebrates it. Considering how many Otaku’s there are in the world… (Trust me there are millions) … There aren’t very many people who are aware that there is a whole day dedicated to us. 15th of December guys! 15TH!!! It’s not that difficult. Write it down in your calendars for next year.
The worst thing is it’s not even celebrated properly amongst the ones that do know…
The only way I’ve come across to celebrate it is by drawing a ^w^ on your wrist.
I mean I’m an Otaku and proud but this is just a bit immature and doesn’t really represent what being an Otaku is all about…
What can we do about it?
I mean it would be cooler to add an ‘X’ to the back of our wrists to represent us all being ‘Nakama’! (Don’t know what nakama means, you should go kill yourself I would suggest you look it up and find out for yourself.)
Other things we can do are have events or conventions all over the world in each major city in the world where there is a strong anime following and I believe there is probably a following in each of the major countries in the world.
You can dress up as your favourite character and post a picture online or actually go as one to the events mentioned above. Just for this one day… People may laugh and find it funny but if you’re Otaku and proud then there should be no problem in doing so.
I guess you could claim this was totally a rant but meh… I don’t really care.
Happy World Otaku Day… I hope next year there is more of a meaning to it…
The only thing I managed to accomplish was to get my sister to start reading the One Piece manga after she was sick of waiting on the anime to produce some real substance worthy of a week’s wait.
Hopefully next year will actually be awesome!
