I have a friend who does a passable imitation of Anavel Gato and wears his
uniform to Expo every year.. 2 Years ago he went down to the dealers room and
a group of japanese school girls dropped into parade formation behind him and
followed him around the room for almost 20 minutes until he turned and gave
the Sieg Jion and then Dismissed them.. It was an absolute blast and I wished
I had a Video Camera at the time..
