Pimping good jdoramas since 2005
Rootabega sez:Long time no see, Mike-san. Great pics. I was sooo born in the wrong place. Had I been born in Japan instead of North America, I may have been lucky enough to hear "kawaii" once in a while, instead of "short, short build a fort", "shrimpy", or my personal fave, "grandma"(?!?). On a more serious note, I'm thinking of you during this tough time in Kumamoto. I hope everyone you know is unharmed and stays safe.
! i just realized my brain has been registering your name wrong rootabega! in my head i kept on thinking robotega.lol was the grandma said in jest or was an insult? they would probably call women middle aged in japan obasan as an insult as well. im betting a lot of people reading mikes blog share the same sentiment of being born in the wrong place.
Those unknown "harem anime" characters are Kashima and Katori from Kantai Collection (KanColle) game.
Rootabega - There are plenty of people who appreciate small and cute instead of long and skinny, just a lot less in English speaking countries. Kumamoto has been on my mind the past two days and the people I know in Kyushu are fine.dgundam - If I had been born in Japan, I might be more into Western stuff.fidelxx - Kancolle isn't a harem anime, isn't it since there's no generic male protagonist. I wonder what's the term for all female character animes? Ownerless harem?
Rootabega sez:dgundamI was called "grandma" when I was ten years old by the mean boys. My best guess is that they thought I was no fun and really short. Humph;)That was so long ago, now I am into middle-aged territory. I was called "oneesan" on my last trip. "Obaasan" could take its place the next time around.Mike-san:Glad to hear everyone is OK, I hope this is the last of the big quakes. Your description of Kumamoto-shi makes it sound like my kind of place, like it's friendly and still has character.Yeah, you're right, ya gotta go to where the love is...;)
