    Geek Culture in China (Article)

    Post  Reed Benson on December 5th 2016, 7:48 am

    When I mentioned that I live in China in my introductory post, Paeter asked what geek culture was like here. When I gave my answer, I'd completely forgotten that Anime is very popular. It's been a while, but I have seen cosplayers milling around outside of exhibition buildings hosting Anime conventions (never recognized any of the characters). Everyone knows Pokemon and Naruto, and I see One Piece characters in ads and stuff.

    Also, here's this article about Chinese female geeks:
    "Female fans of comics, films and games claim their spot in China’s geek culture"

    Very interesting.
    I feel like I should say more, but I'm so sick (and tired from lack of sleep because I'm sick) that I can't cohere my thoughts into a rational thought about it.
