Remember the Big 4 of Akiba? Those guys who cross dressed as Haruhi, and were shooting air-guns in the crowded streets of Akihabara? Well they’re back, but this time, it shouldn’t get them arrested.
Last Saturday and Sunday the infamous 4 made their reappearance in Akihabara to begin a fundraising campaign to bring happiness back to Akihabara. NHK was there to capture the demonstration. It seemed they had a goal to make national news as they would not answer question from ordinary people, only established media.
The money they collected will be used to purchase a device called the Automated External Defibrillator (AED). However local Akihabara shop owners and visitors seem skeptical that the money will really be used to benifit Akihabara. The group has aquired a bad reputation for the shootings done months earlier. One citizen was quoted as saying she thinks that 1% of the money will be used for the AED, and the rest for their cosplay outfits. Via Akibablog.
