I’m happy to announce the great news of Weeab.eu winning Akibahara Online‘s “Best Foreign Otaku Site” award.
I think this is a remarkable achievement considering the site is a multi-thematic blog, covering not just anime – but my personal life and technical things too. Thank you very much to the readers who nominated Weeabeu for the category – I didn’t realise the site had been entered until an email arrived telling me I had won.
In addition to being included in the list of winners since 1992, A cash prize was included in the award to be put towards the given blog. Because I do most of my own web development, this much-appreciated funding is going to go towards payment for a designer and the establishment of a Weeabeu store where readers will be able to buy T-Shirts, mousemats and several other merchandise.
For now a temporary store has been erected and you can purchase our first shirt (currently only available in white – watch out for other colours later in the week).
It’s been an honour to receive this unexpected award for what I started as, and continue to treat as, a casual blog. I’m super motivated to push out some great posts over the next few weeks in order to show my appreciation for the nomination. It feels great to know people appreciate the site smile
