lost in translation – again

Hello Kitty wearing a kimonoLast weekend I went to Otaku 2010. Looking extremely confused at the different activities – from cosplay, drawing, console gaming – I tried to think for a reason why I am going to these events. The only reason I found is it’s for some of the funny / nostalgic moments I have from time to time. Playing some ancient Mortal Kombat, leafing through mangas, recognizing one or two of the different action figures or characters there (from lots!) – I suppose these should be reason enough.

Also – I find the talent of some of the people (either drawing, preparing costumes for cosplay, …) amazing.

Here are some pictures from this year Otaku.
