Hawaii event times posted

Honolulu Festival has dedicated an entire page to Momoi's upcoming performance this March. It looks like she is going to get a bit more special treatment than I had previously thought. There will be two half-hour sessions in the Hawaii Convention Center on 3/15 and 3/16. Holding it indoors is good news for cyalume plans.

Very strangely however, they referred to her main fan base as otaku, and worse, translated "アニメおたく" as "anime-obsessed males". The english version of the article seems to emphasize the gender aspect way too much. That just sounds so unflattering for something supposed to be a fluff piece. Momoi's content is enjoyed by everyone, and that article is framing it in a poor context. Also, parts of it appear to be copied word for word from Wikipedia.

Aww, now that page has me all offended. -laughs/is female- Though it is true a large amount of her fanbase is male (I noticed on my UNDER17 live DVD, almost all of the audience appeared to be male... hm), I believe that Momoi-sensei can appeal to both genders perfectly well.

But that's neat she's going to get so much face time. And that's really a pretty picture of her on that page. Such a cute shirt, such a sweet smile.
