Whoa, that's epic.
I was at the shanghai expo, but i didn't see it. I wasn't into anime yet anyways, so i wouldn't have even noticed. :|

I should probably point out that the Shrine isn't AT or INSIDE the Japanese Pavilion. I'll have to go searching for it.

As probably the biggest LS fan alive... I'm honored to know that LS will have its shrine in my motherland during the Expo.

I'd normally say that the idea of having such a shrine is pretty stupid, but when I think about what my country's gonna show I'm kinda jealous.

I can't describe the "failness".

That's....both fucking creepy and fucking awesome at the same time.

Although my fandom for LS will never extend that far as to carry the shrine...

I'm amazed. Next up we'll LS fans scrambling to visit the shrine.
