Agence France Presse, Nov. 24, 2012: authorship unattributed: "Japan 'geeks' seek love at masked match-making:" [^]
"A 33-year-old man wearing the mask of a villain from a 1970s TV show hit it off with a 26-year-old woman with a Mickey Mouse face on. Both managed to keep smiling when they revealed what was under the disguise.

"My heart was beating as I was taking off the mask," said the Mickey Mouse woman.

Asked if the matchmaking would result in a real date, the man -- who gave his name as Furuta Oribe, a samurai and master of tea ceremony from the 16th century -- was a little unsure.

"I hope so, yes?" he asked, turning to his new beau.

"I was really nervous. I still cannot believe this," he said.
Love ever triumphs !
