Our goal is to express ourselves with aesthetic fashion and encourage each other to unite for a greater mission: to unabashedly share our passions with others, and make the term “Weeb” a badge we can wear with pride.
This is definitely possible. A parallel example would be the comic-book genre, where not too long ago only “nerds” read comic books. Of course, many who didn’t fit the stereotype did as well but only in secret to avoid criticism. However, with 20 years of increasingly successful comic-book movies, it’s now cool to be a fan. There’s no reason the same can’t be done for anime. We already have some brave advocates such as NBA player Steven Adams, or actor Michael B Jordan opening the door, and we have to follow up and spread the movement.
