Edo's japanese links... and tv from Rotwang
"hi, just a short intro and some links for you to check out.
the first is for some people I met at Comiket http://toyboxde.gozaru.jp/ they do events and have an interesting act where they play karakuri ningyo http://www.karakuri.info/dashi/index.html as well as the usual cosplay most people are familiar with.
http://cockrobin.org.uk/index.html is a maid café, another item that is unique to Japan's Akibakei culture.
lastly is Ni Channel which is a rich source of information for the Akibakei and Otaku types and figured prominently in Densha Otoko http://www.2ch.net/"
and Rotwang has provide some images from a tv series from over there;
"It's from a Japanese mid-90's TV show called Death Hunter & Dangerous Angel with a bunch of supernatural themes. In one of the episodes a girl dresses up as a doll to commit crimes. http://jdorama.com/drama.60.htm"
