    In my search for anime clubs in the Philly area, I was a bit dismayed to find only a handful. And of those handful, there seemed to be even less active members that participated.  Now, it could be that I’m missing some mega anime club in the area that also doesn’t have a webpage and holds their meetings in a secret lair, but I don’t think so.  I think more to the fact, Otaku may just not be very social creatures by nature.  But in my search I was able to find one group that seemed to have an outing planned… and it was pretty fun and very social.

    They’re called The Philly Otaku.  I joined their forums to see what they were about and was in luck to attend a picnic outing the next day.  I didn’t know what to expect.  I wasn’t sure if they even wanted someone around to take pictures of them, least of all someone they knew with only one posting.  But they seemed to be ok with me running around snapping photos, and I think that says something about the group.  They’re comfy in their own skin, which is a hard characteristic to come by these days.  Anyways, here are the pictures of their outing.

    Even ninja get thirsty now and then.

    The group started the picnic with a contest to make the best cosplay outfit out of paper and limited crafting supplies. Be as creative as you could within one hour.

    Oh, and you could use whatever you could find in the park, which explains the leaves.

    After the “make your cosplay” contest, there was a game of volleyball.

    I brought these asian yogurt drinks that I really enjoy. I think they liked it too, yes?  It was a fun day TPO. Thanks for having me!
