And yes, that’s me looking very unglamorous on the right hand side of the picture.
The interview was basically to gain more insights on the whole otaku culture in Singapore in parallel with how it is like in Japan and also to clear the misunderstanding of how Otakus = Hikikomoris.
We had also discussed on the recent stabbings (massacre) in Akihabara, and on how the otaku culture has influenced us on a whole.
That’s facially how the interview went if I recall correctly ^^;
The article also covered bits and pieces of Tsutomu Miyazaki, who’s also known as The Otaku Murderer for killing 4 victims back in 1988 – 1989. And also on Densha Otoko, the purportedly true story of a otaku dating a woman who he saved that was being harassed by a drunken man while on a train. I wonder if they should have also added in Neveda Girl into the article as well, though it’s not entirely related.
Bangin-san and Miho-san were also featured in the article too as the only picture I took with double was that particular one. We should take pictures more often ^^;
I haven’t really got spotted while traveling on the trains or walking around but people have been giving me looks lol.
Have you gotten interviewed before?
