I'm guessing this accounts for something...for us "fangirls" to be mentioned in the New York Daily News (which "is the fifth most-widely circulated daily newspaper in the United States" as quoted from wikipedia) alone should be a feat. But the article even mentions Takashi Miike, Sho, and Yatterman which comes as a huge shock to me.
Mistake in the article:
"During an appearance Friday at the New York Comic Con, a convention employee said a huge throng of squealing Japanese girls jammed the floor - preventing Sakurai from getting to a booth for an appearance. Instead, he had to stand in a skybox and wave from the window at his fans."
Correction: We weren't all Japanese...in fact we were a huge mix of cultures and ethnicities alongside many international fans. As for the last part of that paragraph, I guess it's a matter of opinion. The only ones who really know are the staff and security.
Unfortunately, I didn't buy a copy of the physical paper this morning so I'm not sure if there was a printed article on Yatterman/Sho/Miike. I'll see if I can find an unsold copy at my local deli later in the morning.
