Desperate city turns to anime figure

The local tourism organization on Sunday arranged a contest for girls in the former mining community to dress up as Heidi, of “Heidi, Girl of the Alps” fame.

Residents of the city, where half the population is aged 60 or older, refer to women in their 50s as “girls” and those under 50 as “young girls.”

Ray’s Take: well, I guess the city is soooooo old that you’d have to be 120 to be a real old fossil! What about kids? Are they referred to as “premature females”? Wow, this is an old-ass city. But damn, get with the times! Get some teenage girls from outside of the town and have them dress up as Shana, Louise, Nagi, or other moe characters! Take an example from the Buddhist monks and draw some moe mining comics! Or at least do a Raideen cosplay (doesn’t Raideen come out of a mountain or something)!

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
