The Dangers of AnimeThe Dangers of Anime:The Dangers of Anime5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Anime is a highly addictive drug for the rich (soon to be poor), bored, or those who need lives and are too anti-social to go to parties. Some side effects may include :
-Extreme poverty because you spent all your money on manga and pocky
-Hallucinations that you have a life when in fact, you don't
-Spending entire weekends at Anime Cons and months prior planning who you will cosplay as
-Speaking a strange language which may be a combination of English and Japanese
-Hugging people you have never met before because they have a "Hug Me" sign or because they are dressed up as your favorite character
-Confusing/annoying/grossing out your non-anime friends with constant talk of who is seme or uke in your favorite yoai pairing
If you or a loved one starts to squeal, twitch, giggle, or faint at the mention of an anime character, SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTETION. She may suffer from a fatal side effect of becoming a crazy fan girl and needs serious help before she g
Possible Weapons At Anime ConsPossible Weapons At Anime Cons5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This is a list of all (or most) potential weapons at anime conventions.
Swords/weapons- Well, duh. You can only buy them if you're over 18 (technically) but they're still on display and could be used to decapitate anyone with a "Free Hugs" sign that got a little too close...
People- Some people have some pretty jacked up costumes at cons that could be potentially hazardous. Also theres the old tried and true human shield...
Pocky- Think about it for a second...as good as pocky is, there are some places that you never want pocky...
Ramune- This is sort if multi faceted: The ramune itself can be thrown on the ground to make ramune adicts (a.k.a. 90% of con-goers) spaz and go into comas or thrown into someones eyes to potentially blind them, the little marble is a choking hazard, and tripping hazard as well as being a possible projectile. Then the bottle...if you can break it that thing can do some serious damage to many vital organs...why do we drink these deathtraps???

Okay, so this happened to me almost a week ago or so, give or take. I was on the bus on my way to school, playing my Soul Silver on my DS, when the bus lurched a little at a stop. This wasn't unusual, a lot of the city buses were in disrepair and their engines stalling was common. I only sighed in annoyance at this-until something slid from the back of the bus after its sudden stop, the object coming to a halt by my seat.
It appeared to be an abandoned Pokewalker, to my surprise. I bent down and picked it up to have a closer look, distracting myself with it while the bus driver tried valiantly to restart the engines, all other passengers around me groaning impatiently. Upon closer inspection though, I frowned that the little Pokewalker was fairly scuffed and dirty, but worst yet was the screen on the thing.
The clear plastic covering had been scratched badly, looking as if someone had done it on purpose with keys or something to the point that it would be otherwise near impossible to t

It's September 1st today. It's weird, isn't it? The way most kids associate the start of September with brand new backpacks, pencil shavings and the panicked beating of their hearts as they get on the bus, pretending all the while to be perfectly collected, not even a little nervous? I guess that's one thing this whole thing has given me to be grateful for. Dr. Spence says it would be a good idea for me to write a list every day of things I'm grateful for. You'd like him. He also told me I should try writing you a few letters telling you how I feel, even if I would never send them, and it's not like you'd open them even if I did. Anyways, don't get me wrong, it's not like the start of another year doesn't faze me, it's more like I'm used to it, you know? And besides, I have other things to think about.
Charlie. It feels strange to call you Charlie. It's like when we used to go to that sushi place on 3rd street that you absolutely loved and we would order the rolls with
