    Hi @kyuuketsuki_kurai welcome to the community!

    My son is a huge fan of anime! We got him some art books and the special pens for christmas and I have been amazed at some of his drawings!

    Tell us more about the LARPing, that sounds really interesting.

    My daughter's into anime now, too. Do you know what your son watches?
    We go LARPing near Bridgend, Wales by the dunes. We dress up and camp for a weekend taking part in a fantasy based storyline. I don't do much of the combat, so I tend to stay back and heal. It completely wipes me out for a while, but it gets me out and interacting, and it's kind of a nice break.

    That looks fab!!!  Great ears!!  My child is just getting into cosplay and wants to go to a convention this year, they are non-binary and we have found the cos-play scene so welcoming and non-judgmental.  

    Do you find role play accessible for disabled people?

    My son likes Tokyo Ghoul, Yusuki Murata and Attack on Titan.  I dont know much about them and just smile and nod as he goes on about them!!

    I tend to find that most LARPs try their best to be inclusive. We have quite a few people who have various disabilities, including Fibromyalgia and Grave's Disease.
    Also, people who roleplay tend to be really open-minded and accepting.
