A couple years have passed since the launch of International Otaku Day - a day for anime fans to embrace anything and everything anime related. From displaying anime expressions to wearing cosplay outfits to watching anime, reading manga, eating snacks and playing video games...it was a day for fans to go all out with their commitment and dedication to the otaku lifestyle.
International Otaku Day was even noticed by the Anime News Network that published a press release:
I want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped promote International Otaku Day. Thanks especially to the cosplayers who took time out of their busy schedules to spread the word. You are all amazing and I applaud all of you for your tireless efforts and for your contributions to the global anime, gaming and cosplay communities.
