I wish I was born in Japan so that I could attend events like such. Even with fewer travel restrictions, many of us can't attend such events. Which is why we Otaku In Town are planning big things for our Indian weebs, which you all will see in near future. For more updates regarding anime news and events, stay tuned on otakuintown.com.
