Rule #3 of going to the Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival)

Dress appropriately.

I know I say this every year, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t made it into the comic. Basically aside from kimonos, hakamas and yukata you will always find a number of anime cosplayers at the Sakura Matsuri. I say that this makes as much sense as dressing up in a Star Trek uniform for Independence Day because the only connection that exists is that Star Trek was created in the United States. It seems that there are a select number of American anime fans who think that anything Japanese is synonymous with anime which is completely absurd. If only they understood just how absurd it was the world would be a slightly better place.
