The San Antonio Otaku (also known as SAO, which means “Pole” in Japanese; which is why the lady in the background holds a polearm. Aha. I’m clever, not) was inspired by a group of fans and cosplayers that I met while I was living in Philiadelphia.
To spread Otaku-ism over San Antonio by connecting with the anime clubs in the area and building a strong community!
The San Antonio Otaku was inspired by a group of fans and cosplayers that I met while I was living in Philiadelphia. They dress up, go to malls and just generally hang out. I hoped that I could create something like that here in San Antonio. So, join, meet the locals, have some fun!
The San Antonio Otaku enjoy numerous gatherings throughout the year. We generally meet about once a month on a formal basis. But we also gather on a much more frequent basis in an informal fashion, just hanging out witha group of members here and there. In addition to our gatherings, The San Antonio Otaku also sponsor trips to Anime conventions taking place in the region. This allows members to enjoy the excitement of going to a convention, part of the highlights of being involved in cosplay. We have a forum. We plan trips and gatherings as well as discuss many issues relating to cosplay and anime in general. We encourage everyone who is interested in learning more about the group, to stop in at our forums, located in the website section.
