Some people will consider it a crying shame, but despite living in Japan and being exposed to it everyday, I have little or no interest in anime. And my knowledge of it is arguably even less. But that said, an anime advertising campaign involving a bevy of young beauties dressed in black bat-like costumes is very different. It’s not only interesting, but also worthy of a few poorly taken pictures.
This procession weaved its way around the streets of Akihabara, and not surprisingly drew quite a lot of attention. So much so in fact that their bat-like beauty warranted a visit by the masked man himself. Although perhaps not the one you are thinking of.
But all this attention and the novel nature of the campaign didn’t mean that those involved were enjoying themselves. No, far from it.
