  • Latest Japanese subculture: "History Girls"

    I kind of hope this catches on here.

    For Japanese Women, The Past Is The Latest Fad

    In Japan, the number of female visitors to shogun castles, samurai battle re-enactments and history bookstores has recently increased. Observers attribute this to the rise of the "history girls" — a new urban subculture that some believe signals a kind of empowerment for female Japanese hobbyists.

    Who paid the bill?

    I don't buy it. Good for Japan, but in America most "history girls" are just greasy fat dudes in disguise...

                    Good potential...

                    We'll see if it's like the "Maid Cafe" thing that became popular the last couple of years. Cute, squeaky voiced, young girls in French maid outfits. Selling expensive burgers, ice cream, and such.

                    Pure, evil chauvinism of course Though it was kind of nice being addressed as "Master"! I still have the pic, hidden from the wife of course
