Akihabara animation and manga is well-know around the world.
Densha Otoko (電車男) TV series was a hit in 2005. Story is about a train nerd who rescued a lady was harass by a drunken man on the train. The lady (Saori Aoyama) send a luxury tea cups set as a gift to train man (Tsuyoshi Yamada). Tsuyoshi told the situation to other nerd friends and they found the luxury tea cups set is Hermès a French luxury brand. Tsuyoshi’s firends decided to help him go after the Hermès lady (nick name)… It was a great lovely story drama I will recommend who was interesting about Akihabara culture.
Besides Densha Otoko there are lots of famous manga from Japan. Such as Naruto, One Piece, Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, Highschool of the Dead, etc. Recently famous manga is Shingeki no Kyojin (movie) and new TV series coming up GTO .
These photos was taken at Akihabara (秋葉原), Japan
In the photos you can see young ladies dress in cute clothes and talked to man who looks a lot older than her. We know they were targeting people who likes comics and living in fantasy world. But we don’t know what they were selling. So Ann send me walked by those young ladies see if they will come up and selling me something? When I walked by they don’t even look at me, why? Ann said maybe you dress not nerd enough. hahahahaa Too bad we won’t know what they were selling. Akihabara has it own special culture, maybe next time ~
