The Otaku Expo 2015

Otaku is a Japanese slang word which refers to someone who has a hobby and is spending more time, money, and effort on that particular hobby more than anything else.

Otaku Expo as an annual event that is been around for quite some time. This year’s event (as far as I remember) is my first time to attend so I took some pictures of what I have encountered.

First we’re the Cosplayers
