As seen on Otaku2.
My sophomore year of university, my roommate at the time dragged me to a meeting of my school's anime club. I had long since sworn off all contact with others who shared my enthusiasm when it came to Japanese animation when the great barrier of the internet was not between us: two con trips and a short lived membership in another club of the same variety had made this clear.
Yet I went anyway.... and it was nothing like the other clubs or cons I had been to, it was about 4,000,000 times worse. The things they said... the things they watched... the things they said relating to the things that they watched....
And so on that day, I swore to myself never to have a moment of weakness and try to meet people based on a kinship founded in Japanese animation. I've been happy ever since.
