Earlier this week, on a certain cloudy Monday, Hobart otaku comrade, Wakaranai SMSed me and asked me if i was free to do his photo-shooting of his Otacool3 Submission for Danny Choo‘s upcoming Otacool3 magazine. It features the colorful workspace of otakus all around the world. So far, to my knowledge, we would be the only two Tasmanian otakus in Australia that are planning to submit our application. Hopefully there would be more, but there are other Australian otakus that have already started submitting as well! The night before today (Saturday), i was talking with the Gurren Lagann’s Kamina cosplayer whom i met at AIcon 2010. We were planning to meet the moment we exchanged Facebook contacts .. and it random but it happened today as well!
United by our passion for animes and otaku culture, we both met in the city, met up with Wakaranai at the otaku shop, Niko Niko, then later had lunch at Sakura (sushi). “Russian sushi oishi yo~!” After lunch, we headed out to Wakaranai’s lair for the photoshoot. During the process of taking the shots of the room, we three also started exchanging comments, anime sharing and all that that is otaku-ism! Had a great fun time, with some Halo on the Xbox as well, i was the last on the frag board, but loved the game! First time playing it on the Xbox tho!
During the meeting of these 3 otakus, we did everything otakus do, from anime referencing, comparing seiyuus, figures and such, anime swapping and recommendations, etc etc etc! Another day of a colorful otaku lifestyle for the otaku trooper. Marching daily with a mission to bring out the exciting best of the Japanese Otaku Subculture! It is a very demanding culture and requires constant updates with a passion!
