Man, you know when what was formally a fringe-supported hobby/craze is becoming far too acceptable and ‘normal’ when you start finding its DVDs out at your local Pick ‘n Pay store.
Yup, I could hardly believe my eyes when I spotted multiple copies of Chobits DVD 1 sitting on a little display case next to the till here at the local Gordon’s Bay Pick ‘n Pay supermarket branch.
It would seem that anime is indeed coming out of its shell here in South Africa in a big way after all – and as a fan I couldn’t be any happier! :)
And besides, at R30 for the DVD it would be a sin to ignore anyway!
