I wasn’t aware that anime lovers in Pakistan had advanced so much. There was a Pakistan Anime Convention (apparently the 2nd time) in Karachi on 13th Jan. Details of the convention can be found at the following links:
– thread at WCCFTech, from where I first heard about it (be sure to click the Flickr link for more images)
– Blood, gore … and a purpose @ DAWN
The purpose for such an event as stated by the people in charge (clicky) is:
The purpose of this event is to promote Anime and educate people about Anime and Manga and provide an event. This event will be focused towards clearing the conception of the modern ‘cartoon’, thus allowing more people to appreciate this kind of entertainment.
Something which I embrace with open arms. I’m tired to having to hide that I watch (well, used to watch … see? It’s become a part of my nature now …) anime just because of fear of such a reaction.
