Akiba girls...

We went to Akihabara AKA Akiba yesterday to buy a replacement for my defunct printer and I couldn't resist coming over all otaku (manga geek) and snapping some shots,

    Antonia nailed it. Where's the sheep?

    B: if they do, we need pictures!

    Anon: I'm with you, though I like pink and sometimes like limited frills I'm not keen on these particular combos!

    C: well there weren't any sheep; but there were plenty of otaku taking snaps on their keitais!

    The girls aren't supposed to look real, they are dressed up like anime characters to fulfil the fantasies of the otaku visiting Akiba
