Life in JapanThings that I learned about Japan since I came to Japan
1) the trains are always on time
2) the services (in restaurants, shops, etc) are amazing, they treat you really well and polite too
3) Japanese people are a bit shy and are not very open to foreigners, of course not all of them are like that
4) People committing suicide by jumping on the railways. I don't like it because it always slow down the train....
5) Japanese commercials are so funny and interesting. And sometimes a bit weird too =v=;
6) Onsen&Sentou ( Hot water bath& Public Bath House), people have to get naked and have to see other people naked to bath in one. There are also some private Onsen I think..
7) Fast food restaurants~ not so many people go to eat there~ at least at the city where I'm living right now~
That's all for now~ there are lots of other things but I just can't think of one right now~ if you have any questions about Japan, you can just ask me. I'll try to answer according to what I know..
Life in Japan 2More things that I know about JapanLife in Japan 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Male hosts are always on the street trying to get customers at night~ especially in Ikebukuro~ I heard that Roppongi is famous for hosts clubs and bars but I never been there before. Not that I want to go to such places either.
2) Akihabara is the otaku heaven for male coz it has maid cafe and everything, Ikebukuro is the place for females coz it has lots of shops which sells BL/yaoi related stuffs and also....BUTLER CAFE!!!!!!! I want to go to one so bad, someone, please go with me!!!!!!!!! hahaha
3) Sometimes people will hand out flyers to other people walking on the street but they won't hand it to foreigners. Some of them. It's so sad...
4) Harajuku~~~the fashion shopping district~~~on weekend, you can see some people cosplaying~~and people wearing gothic and lolita dress^^
5) Shinjuku~~the busiest place~ the train station here is like the main station and there's always lots of people~ I really hate it when I have to change station here *TvT*

"Good morning!" You said to your family.
"Good morning ____" Your family replied.
You were surprised that your family replied since they never ever cared about you. Well, what do you expect from being in an assassin family anyway?
You were they youngest one in your family so that's why your parents and siblings never cared about you. (not completely true, your siblings actually loved you). You had 2 brothers and 1 sister. The oldest brother who was 18 was called Mitsuru, then your sister came second who is 16 and is called Kiki. Then came your other brother who is 14 and is called Seiji. He is your favourite sibling.
Every time your parents shout at you or punish you by smacking you or hitting you with whips, You didn't really mind since you got used to it and it makes you stronger and it'll be easier to endure pain when you're older. Your parents will also make you drink poison, but you were used to all of the poison anyway so you didn't mind. But deep inside yo

Kamiya leaned over the window sill watching the horizon. She blinked slowly letting out a small yawn. The news of her late father still tugged at the strings of her heart but matters seemed to be getting better. After all the fire demon had accompanied her many times these past few days since Kurama’s sudden departure. In fact, she was becoming accustomed to and even quite fond of him. Looking over her bare shoulder, the maiden glanced over at Hiei who was crouched on the floor. He sat Indian style with his arms crossed, as his back rested on the side of her bed. His head slightly lowered. Was he sleeping? A smile adorned the princess’s lips. He looked so peaceful – usually those red eyes were piercing right through her, watching her every step.
“Hiei?” her voice was just above a whisper, in case the fire demon was actually sleeping. No response. Kamiya maneuvered her way over to the seated man, kneeling down in front of him. He was sleeping. The yo

It was a summer morning and everything was quiet. Killua opened his sapphire eyes, examining the interior of his room. Half asleep he jumped out of bed and scratched the back of his head. Only two things popped into his mind at that moment. That he was in a hotel and that he needed a coffee real bad to wake himself up.
He felt as though he drank alcohol the previous night and gotten a hangover the next morning. But that can’t be right, considering that he is too young to be having alcohol and wouldn’t try it even if he had the chance to. Killua never really like the smell of alcohol so he usually backs away from it when Leorio is drinking some.
The thoughts that were flooding his mind were easing as he was making his way to the kitchen. The noise that a small yawn from Killua made got another boy jump and turn his head from the couch that he was sitting in.
“Good morning Killua!” the boy waved while showing his signatu

How could one go about describing its caliber? A being that can permanently connect the human world with the spirit world, rupturing another separate supernatural plane of a mysterious essence. A place, a being, a figure that Koenma knew little of.
The stressed Koenma leaned back in his chair, eyes closed, head resting on the peak of his seat. Yusuke crossed his arms and faced Kuwabara. He felt the pain of giving Koenma useless information. An eerie silence still rested upon them.
"Urameshi, I guess we shall call this a day," Koenma stood, though his head was still bowed. A decision hard to make. How could he just leave this important case unsolved?
Botan urgently rushed in, a young maiden followed behind her. She moved with elegance and grace as Botan hastily moved about.
"Lord Koenma, there is urgent news!" Botan exclaimed as if her uneasy demeanor wasn't enough. "In the Niwaharu realm - "

Halle Lidner had nearly finished packing up her personal belongings when a soft cough at the door drew her attention. The blond woman paused, white blouse hanging in mid air between thin, effeminate fingers, and glanced quizzically at her co-worker who stood at the door to her quarters.
Wiping an errant strand of black hair from his eyes, Stephen Gevanni gave her a rather amused grin and gestured at the pile of clothes still resting, unpacked, on Halle's bed. "If I didn't know better, I'd say you're taking your time because you don't want to leave." He chuckled, and his eyes twinkled mischievously. "Then again, when I think of women, the first thing I think of is my mother, and God knows, every year, every holiday we ever took when I was a kid, she'd pack three suitcases. Three. And only for a week, too."
"At least my shirts won't be wrinkled when I get home," Halle retorted tartly, returning his sly grin with one of her own. "How much do you have

:icononionhiplz: Hai everyone!!~ I'd like to start off by apologizing for not having a Christmas themed magical girl contest, and for not doing much the past few months :icongivingupplz: Gomen minna!~ I also didn't want to do a Valentine's Day contest since we did that last year. I thought that having a contest based off holidays are things groups always do, so I thought of a new idea. I went to look at all the old magical girl shows in our group, and saw there are actually quite a bit of them! So I thought, "Let's do a contest to commemorate the successors of the magical girl genre!" And that's what the contest is about!

Great news! We've got a new special chapter of Boruto.It's about Naruto's Hokage Inauguration Day.
Here's the link to the chapter. Enjoy!
So what do you think about "Naruto"'s first day? xD
The kids playing/fighting scene was adorable in my opinion but Hima is kinda scary!!
BTW Great news knowing Hima has a byakugan too!
Also people think this means there'll be more official manga, do you think it is possible?

SWORD ART ONLINE ACTUAL GAME?OKAY HERE'S THE THING, WE HAVE SOME OF THE TECHNOLOGY TO ACTUALLY DO THIS. Ever heard of the Oculus Rift? Look it up, it's a virtual reality gaming system. You have to put on this weird mask/helmet looking thing to see the game and hold on to these remote/handel thingys to move. This is a screenshot from my favorite anime ever titled Sword Art Online. Again, if you haven't heard of it look it up, it's on Toonami every saturday night at 2AM, it's amazing. The show is about a bunch of players trying a virtual reality game that was just released but it trapped them in the game so now they're fighting off monsters and sometimes players gone bad to escape the game to get back to reality. Now I understand after hearing that you'd be a little skeptical and freaked out to even try Oculus Rift, but wouldn't that be amazing?! Playing in one giant server with other people across the world in this game?! Someone needs to get to work on this because we actually have the power to do this.SWORD ART ONLINE ACTUAL GAME?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Cool, grassy ground of what?
You moved your arms to push yourself into a sitting position, but instantly relented at the sharp pain abruptly shooting through your joints. Your limbs prickled almost painfully so, and you groaned in irritation as you forced your sleeping arms to lift yourself upwards.
Ah. Cool, grassy ground of a forest, you thought, as your eyes scanned your surroundings.
You took note of the long tree branches seemingly overlapping each other and the thick underbrush. You had never seen a forest this dense before, and you frowned at the thought of trying to navigate through the trees and bushes.
