Washington Post on Akihabara Otaku Culture
posted on by Christopher Macdonald
The Washington Post is running an article about Akihabara and its nerdy "otaku" stores and the people within, describing it as a nerd ghetto, and relating it to places such as New York's Chinatown or San Francisco's gay Castro district. The article also covers the negatives of anti-social "otaku" behavior and the signs of their culture in the mainstream. Thanks to Guy Person for this item.
