What do you do if you run into a friend? Or a co-worker? How do you take care of crisis prevention?

By staying at home.

Friends or co-workers are no problem. What’s embarrassing is when you run into people who you only kind of know.

I ran into a friend from my junior high days at an event. We both pretended like we didn’t know each other.

Naturally I avoid the events that are really close to me. But apart from that, there’s no helping it.

I was wearing a mask and hat to disguise myself, but I was still found out… To make matters worse I was even copying the dances so I couldn’t pretend like I was just randomly passing by either.

I once noticed my ex-girlfriend among the curious onlookers, so I made my escape before she could notice me.

It’s like I enter my own world. I don’t even imagine the possibility of someone noticing me.

I was once seen by a friend and his family to whom I hadn’t come out to as a wota. (laughs) I wanted to die.

I’ve told my close friends I’m a wota, and it’s really not such a big deal if the not-so-close friends were to find out either.

Please tell me how to prevent disaster if I do happen to bump into someone I know.

“I was just shopping and I noticed there was this idol handshake thing going on, so I took part just to see what it was like. I guess they were cute and all, but yeah, they’re still children! (laughs)“

“Why are you wearing a wota T-shirt? Why are you holding a glowstick? Why were you just dancing with everyone?“

No problem for me since I don’t have any acquaintances.

Basically I just wear a mask and try not to look at the faces of the people closest to me and just concentrate on watching the stage. When entering and exiting, I be quick about it and keep my head down.

When I was attending a public radio recording, apparently an acquaintance of mine happened to be passing by. When he asked me “hey, you were at XX the other day, right?“, I just feigned ignorance and said it must’ve been someone else.

I live in the countryside so I’ve felt disappointed how they never come here for concerts, but it looks like there’s another side to the coin, too…

I try not to wear my wota T’s unless it’s a room separate from the public area. Then when it ends, I immediately change clothes.

I just remembered that there’s an event near me next week. What to do…?

Local events are tough. Especially the open spaces at places like Aeon Mall.

If it’s just my personal acquaintances, I don’t really mind. If it’s an area somewhere near where my wife’s friends live, I take real good care to disguise myself.

Remember: the average onlooker is more interested in the strange movements of the wota rather than the performers themselves.

My co-worker (along with his wife and kids) saw me jumping and generally going crazy at an Odaiba event. Just like I expected, when I went back to work on Monday, it’d become a rumor around the office. But thanks to that I also started having more luck when asking for days off, so at the end of the day I’m glad it happened.

“I’m just here to check out the magician who comes on after these girls…“
Henkka: “Oh, no, I was just killing time before the Hokkaido Scat Fetishists Convention 2014 starts down the hall there.” “Ooooh! Right. For a second there you had me worried you’d become one of those disgusting wota types!” “Eww, no way! LOL.”
