Tokyo in Tulsa: A Safe Haven for Weirdos

Thousands of eager anime fans swarmed to Tokyo in Tulsa, July 17-19th. An array of glorious cosplays seemed to stop traffic in downtown Tulsa, with varying reactions to a beautiful occurrence: many of Oklahoma’s nerds had united in one place! For those who deeply...
