Moefest in 3.21.2007 issue of Newsweek Japan xD

Yeah, well, I know the title is kind of meh, but according to this news item in ANN, the 3.21.2007 issue of Newsweek Japan will feature a full-fledged focus on moe subculture and its influx in western societies. Anyone living in the land of the rising sun would consider buying the issue and telling us all what it's all about? I can't help saying I'm really, really curious

I still get a chuckle from the "Haruhi-image in the Gaza Strip" appearing in that article. Coincidence or not, it is still amusing.

Cheers.

This had better not take us a step closer to the majority branding anime fans as pedophiles, like most of these articles do.

Judging from the cover and the article summary posted in the ANN article, it doesn't seem so. But, who knows...

Anyways, remember this is Newsweek Japan we're speaking of. If such an article were to be released in the US or another western country, its scope would certainly be different.

Haha, I bought it and I'll update my blog (its in my signature) later, or tomorrow. Very interesting, all about Japanese "moe" cultures impact outside of Japan - maid cafes, anime, manga, cosplay - the whole works

Considering copyrights, I can't do much, and I'm insanely busy

But here you go, if you have requests, comment and I'll edit it in.
