Sharon Kinsella is a university researcher that has deep knowledge about Japanese pop culture, including anime, manga and, of course, Idols. ^^

Now, thanks to Internet and other web based technologies readers across the globe can grant access to her papers through her official page. ^^

Hello! Wota proudly presents an huge quote from the article "Cuties in Japan" about Matsuda Seiko and Onyanko Club:





I also recommend the reading of the paper “Japanese Subculturein the 1990s: Otaku and the Amateur Manga Movement” that traces the origin of the "otaku culture" to the Comic Market (Comiket). ^^
