    An Otaku Pilgrimage

    Well a popular topic that has surfaced this week on the forums is one of fandom. Now that anime is mainstream more than ever it is hard to define what it means to be a true anime enthusiast.

    I think that if anyone is a real hardcore fan they should try to make a journey to Japan. It is sort of the same with intense fans everywhere. For rock fans there is the Hall of Fame. For baseball fanatics there is the stadium or even the world series. Besides it is a cool life experience any how.

    What do you think.

    you have been to japan from what ive seen, im plannin on going to japan in a couple years to go to school there, and i will check out the anime clubs there, they are fun to go and hang in i hear it will be an awesome expearience.
    did you buy a komono?

    within the darkened realm of the mind, is endless shadows, wrenching pain, warming love, and burning desires.

    My kimono is black with the character for happiness on the shoulders. I got it in a textile center in Kyoto.

    I don't mind at all but I don't remember so it is pointless anyhow. Yes I do plan on going back but I have no idea exactly when.
