Hello my fellow anime lovers!

I am a life long anime lover, its an obsession. Ive wanted to travel to Japan for just as long and now as an adult the possibility is actually on the horizon! I will be traveling to Japan in about 2 years time and in the mean time i will be teaching myself the beautiful language.

ANYWAY, i am hoping to meet so native Japanese friends who share my love of anime. Idealy we would talk through emails and become friends and meet up when I travel to Japan (to clarify the majority of my trip will be to Akihabara but as of now it part of the trip will be a guided tour starting in Kyoto and ending in Akihabara, then we weill be spending a few days exploring the otaku capital of the world! By we I mean myself and my son who wil be 18 at the time of trip.)

Ive looked around at penpal sites but specifying interests seems to narrow the results by quite a bit.

I also own a small anime retail business and I am a collector of all things anime (dvds, blurays, figures, EVERYTHING!) so I would also be interested in sending each other gifts occasionally if we become good friends. I LOVE dagashi and all japanese snacks and sweets!

I apologize for my rambling, I am at work and its late so my brain is a bit scattered. My name is Pete, im 38 yrs old and have 2 kids (yes they both love anime!) I love Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, No Game No Live, Love, Chunibyo and other delusions, Re;Zero and many others. I love to Cosplay and I LOVE Anime Cons, in fact Im going to Anime Boston in 3 weeks for my... 7th or 8th year! Really hope i get some responses!

So Id love to meet so native Japanese Folks, preferably 20+, male or female is good, love talking to anyone, obviously English my currently the only language I speak so thats a necessity. Look forward to hearing from you!

Yeah Airbnb is great.

When I was in Osaka last summer, my sister and I stayed at a guest house we booked through Airbnb. The host and I have been keeping in touch through Kakao Talk since then

It just dawned on me that there probably arent too many ppl from Japan on cr, paying for shows they watch on regular television everyday

Also, FYI, except for RWBY, none of the shows on CR can be watched on CR if you are in Japan. There are still some folks living in Japan who may be free users of CR for purposes of participating in the forums and groups and such, though, and of course there may be Japanese CR members who don't live currently live in Japan.
