Anime Day

SDB: "If Ron Karenga can do it, so can I. The newly-formed Otaku religion celebrates Anime Day on December 25. It's a jenn-you-wine traditional Japanese holiday (that I just made up) which otaku celebrate by putting up life-sized cardboard cutouts of Sailor Moon. We demand that Usagi be placed next to Rabbi Bogomilsky's menorah, and if they won't do that then we'll sue."

Let's think about this. Pikachu, Sakura and Chiyo-chan would be in attendance as prophets, kawaii be their names. Various mecha would have to serve as angels, and the Space Battleship Yamato playing the role of the Ark.

Communion would be given in the form of Pocky and caffinated drinks.

I think Steven's onto something here!

2 You can go much worse than Serena... ah I beg your pardon... Usagi. And she is iconic.

3 Then I've just lived the ultimate "Anime Day" sacrilege. I ordered 3 DVD sets through the Amazon marketplace and all were bootleg! Is that like getting a lump of coal in your stocking? What kind of "bad karma" do I have to deserve this?

5 That's all well and good, but I'm making popcorn and bringing a chair for when the debate gets to defining the Otaku Virgin Mary.

6 I nominate Rosette Christopher from Chrno Crusade for the Otaku Virgin Mary. It isn't exactly right, but she's probably as close as it will get.

7 The ones you speak of are false prophets, and those who follow them shall be cast into the fiery pit of dub-only edited-for-TV anime. The forces of Haruhiism will not be denied; we demand our own display separate from the otaku blasphemers.

There is no god but Haruhi, and Kyon is her prophet.

9 Otaku Virgin Mary: well, I don't know about the virgin bit, but the Abh can not only provide Immaculate Conception, but Immaculate Gestation! (top that, Yahweh!

And if Kyon is the prophet, does that make Itsuki/Mikurur/Nagato the three wise men^Hpersons? After all, they are the first to recognize the new-born god...(they followed signs to her that no one else could see, too!)

10 If you guys are looking for an anime virgin, wouldn't that be Chi from Chobits?

11 We don't need weak analogies with Christianity here, so no virgins. Usagi works just fine, it's a respected symbol hailing to us from the dark ages of 1-episode per VHS tape, when true devotees had to walk miles barefoot to get those tapes... Haruris may come and go, true symbols stay the test of time.
