I’m a 27 year old American Otaku (Anime fan for you gaijins). I draw Anime and Manga on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior Japanese games. (Disgaea, Final Fantasy, Persona series)
I train with my Katana every day, this superior weapon can cut clean through steel because it is folded over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my sword license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.
I speak Japanese fluently, both Kanji and the Osaka dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%
When I get my Japanese visa, I am moving to Tokyo to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Studio Ghibli or a game designer!
I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.
Wish me luck in Japan!
Please don’t go man, please don’t. I just…this has to be false…regardless of how anime/manga focused you are, you HAVE to at least know that people in Japan don’t wander about in Kimonos all the time…
Was fooling around in GIMP, cooked up my own album cover for the Martian Successor Nadesico OST, considering I couldn’t find the original cover in decent quality.
This image is a pretty high resolution, so you could probably use it as a desktop wallpaper. Personally I have it centred, with white bordering it. Looks rather nice.
Basically I ripped a high quality version of the Nadesico logo, the one used in the show to represent the ship. I then hunted out a font that matched well and added ‘Martian Successor’ onto it. Makes a nice little logo for the show I think.
