*See....even the Pope is an otaku...*
...well, correction....he's not. But for the correlation between Catcholism and anime is Rome. Yes, Rome. Today, around fifty cosplayers paraded around the Spanish Square in Rome for during the Romix convention. This was part of the very first cosplay contest since the very first Romix event back in 2001. The Japanese Embassy in Italy supported the event and Misako Aoki, a government-designated otaku ambassador and organizer of the event, also got into the mix. The cosplay contest to select competitors to represent Italy in the next round of the annual World Cosplay Championship to be held in Nagoya in 2010. That's all kinds of kick ass, seriously.
