Akihabara Liberation Protest!
Yesterday, around 400 otaku hit the streets to hold a protest calling for the liberation of Akihabara. Many of the participants donned traditional protest gear, while others protested while cosplaying. Judging from photos and video, it appears that several famous characters were at the event: Danny Choo, Coke Vending Machine Zero, and possibly Jonathan Underwood. It looks like everyone had a lot of fun.
YouTuber kks001 has uploaded a couple videos of the event:
