The secret of nerds

I went to an anime convention yesterday... Holy shit, nerds need o stop being so fucking dumb.

To start off with, there was an hour and a half wait to get into the dealers room/Market place. Why you ask? Well, some of the sellers thought it was a good idea to bring and sell a shit load of bootlegged merchandise. The dealers room was a drag, the only good thing was the one copy of .Hack//Sign complete collection for $79.99, and yes, I fought to get it. (It is normally $219 up here). I guess there were soem cool weapons...

Which brings me to my next point. Apparently, when you are a crazed fourty year old douch... Anime fan and are in possession of a shitty 30 dollar rip off shinai, you suddenly become a master at kendo... Actually, excuse that, they were not even doing kendo, they were fighting with sticks. I mean, fuck, it was funny enough seing some huge fat guy dressed up as an anime character, but you have not seen a true nerd until you have seen what this guy did.

He bent down sepherioth style, stayed in that position for about 2 minutes acting 'intimidating", took the shinai out of it's invisible sheath and attacked the other douche bag with a one handed shinai style. Now, maybe you people do not understand just how stupid this is. See, for one, when he bent down he opened up his men target,(head gear) for two minutes. In kendo, this could lead to.. maybe 10, 20 points against you. Secondly, if you hold a shinai with one hand, you wrist will snap. You will break you hand in a real shiai match. No if's ands or buts about it.

By the end of their 45 minute epic battle, the kissaki(leather tip) was torn off and the 4 bamboo segments were falling apart.

That usually happens..... After a year of hard core fighting, at least, in my kendo class. The shear shittyness of these shinai was amazing.

In closing, anime conventions suck.

First one to reply with "Corbenk>tom" INCLUDING THE QUOTATION MARKS, get 20 000 points.

You're so going to be a critic of something or other when you're older.
But yeah, fat, cosplaying, unaccurate nerds DO suck.

Anyway, cosplay is just lame in general. I have no idea how people embarrass themselves like that.

I've had at least 5 kids say that to me in electronics class....."Don't make fun of him(me, Hideki), he'll be the one making video games (and shit), and you'll be the slacker playing them."

Re: The secret of nerds

the only good cosplayers are the ones that are known all over the internet, in other words if you want to meet some good cosplayers don't even bother going to any conventions.

Re: The secret of nerds

..... idk about your conventions, but the annual convention in hawaii if pretty cool. Because we don't have a bunch of idiots that are anime crazed, but actual level-minded people that will cosplay for fun and not actually do what those guys did.
Sounds pretty dumb to me. I mean, Yea, i'm all for acting silly if and when I cosplay, but imitating an anime character's pose for 2 straight minutes? DUMB.

I really hate it when they try to use japanese words, and make it sound really... un-japanese-y. >.< I heard that at the last convention I went to, and I probably would've laughed at the guy if he wasn't a foot taller than me.

Re: The secret of nerds

LoL! That story reminds me of my 3rd grade cousin imitating Yu-Gi-Oh, that was funny! But yea, when ppl dress up for cosplay they should pick a character that picks them. A fat guy shouldn't dress up as a skinny anime character! Even I admit that to myself! I'm not fit enough to dress up as Yorouichi or Soi Fong (but that doesn't mean I'm fat! I'm average, which means I'm skinnier than most! Especially that guy from the pic OffTheChain posted up!)!!
