Otaku soars to new heights

Check out this article from the Anime News Network:

Japanese Internet investor Daisuke Enomoto, set to become the world's fourth "space tourist", plans to dress as Gundam character Char Anzanable during his $20-million dollar flight. All the self-professed Gundam-otaku requires is the approval of the Russian Space Agency, which operates the space-tours for Space Adventures Inc.Space Adventures Inc. has so far sent three "Space Tourists" to the International Space Station on Russian Soyuz space-craft for US$20-million a piece.

And I thought I was hardcore!
