Cebu is home for a lot of otakus, a term used to refer to people with obsessive interests for anime and manga fandom. Animes later influenced these otakus to dress up like their favorite anime characters. This resulted to the emergence of cosplay groups in the city. UP students have seen the need for a gathering of Otakus in Cebu; thus, they organized the first Otaku Fest eight years ago. Now, the young Cebuanos continue to look forward to the annual event.
On its 8th year, Otakufest themed “Alternate Universe” will be hosting more contests and will be giving more surprises for the Cebuano Otakus on February 21.
Excited? Well, here’s a throwback of last year’s Otakufest to excite you even more.
