I hope Akihabara will be another Otaku "holy site" in the future.

That, and Ikebukuro. Why should there only be one Holy Anime Site? Very Happy

Why would someone have to declare Akihabara to be a "holy city" to the animites and mangatians? It just is.

That would be like the mayor of Jerusalem declaring it to be a holy city. Quite pointless when the religions in question already think it is one.
