Sugoi Society PH: Step Into a New Haven for Otakus
The growing Facebook community where you can share your love for anime, J-Pop, and Japanese culture
From watchlists to playlists, the worlds of fashion and lifestyle, Japanese pop culture has evidently seeped into a lot of daily life. Zeroing in some more on pop culture, we see that the storytelling and beauty of Japanese anime are unmatched. J-Pop, meanwhile, continues to give listeners some of the catchiest songs to bop along to.
Indeed, Japanese pop culture is in a league of its own. If you agree with this (and are looking for people who understand your anime references or share your enthusiasm for J-culture), you’ll definitely want to join Sugoi Society PH.
Whether you’re new to this side of pop culture or have been a long-time fan, the guide straight ahead is a nice walk-through of what you can expect from this community. Scroll through, dig in, and see why this group could be for you.
What is Sugoi Society PH?
If you’ve seen interviews of J-Pop artists or watched your fair share of Japanese anime, then you’re probably familiar with the word sugoi. (When something delightful happens, the Japanese would often use this term, which means “wow,” “nice,” and “amazing.”) In essence, this is one way of expressing awe. Evidently, too, this is what inspired Sugoi Society PH.
Sugoi Society PH is a Facebook Group where anime, J-Pop, and Japanese culture fans get to connect with people like them. This is a warm, welcoming community of fans getting together to talk about their favorite anime, cosplayers sharing their kawaii creations, and J-Pop fans discovering new artists.
