I wanted to check in with you. Little did I know that during the Hulu run of America's Greatest Otaku I would be distracted by a giant earthquake and tsunami tragedy. Having arrived in Tokyo on March 9 - two days before the quake - the last thing I expected was this. But while I have been so busy up in Tohoku (Miyagi) with my volunteer aid efforts, I have been working with Dice and the team via the Internet to finish the season finale.
Finally, we are almost complete - and later this week you will all get to see WHO is America's Greatest Otaku - and join the trip to Japan. We had filmed this pre-earthquake luckily.
I hope all of you get a chance to vote as well.
Thank you so much for supporting our show - and showing your otaku pride. Japan is an amazing place and incredible culture and by being an otaku you get to be part of that culture.
for the next year of my life I will be living in Miyagi making a documentary about the tragedy and how the Japanese people are overcoming it and rebuilding their lives. It will be a very challenging and difficult project but I am dedicated to making it happen - and all proceeds from the film will be donated to Miyagi.
Honestly, all of your passion and love for Japan have kept me going, even when times are tough. I very much appreciate your support - of the manga, shows and culture I've been fortunate to bring to America.
Really, we're all America's Greatest Otaku. Hope you enjoy the final episode!!
