This article has caught my eyes as I am always a big fan of the ‘Otaku’ culture that Japan has created. After reading this article, I have a realised that the Otaku culture have spread to other countries in the world. This really intrigue me as it shows that people who have different backgrounds and cultivation can bond together as one, liking the same thing together. This really shows that races,religions,skin colours. None of that really matter as long as people enjoy doing and having the same interest. I myself was able to make new friends from other countries due to them having to like the same anime as I do. This could have never happened to me if it weren’t for this special culture I hold so dear to.
