I’ve had for so many times expressed my fondness for anything Japanese that it even prompted me to learn the language. It’s no secret that I enjoyed learning it more than I enjoyed learning German, the language of the country I am living in. I love watching animes even as a kid but my enthusiasm was amplified later on when my kids show the same interest. It was my ex-boyfriend (now hubby) who made me love Japanese food and inclined me to read mangas…so you see, I cannot discount the feeling of sadness seeing the devastation a country who brought the world karaoke, video games, cosplay, and most especially their greatest contribution to the food industry…
I wrote a haiku over at my other blog and I’m sharing it here too.
I believe in their capacity to pick up the pieces and rise as a nation. Until then, my thoughts and prayers go to everyone in Japan, my home country; the Philippines, neighboring countries and all places where the tsunami ripples ended up.
Here are some of the photos I took some weekends ago…during the Aninite cosplay event. It’s being held in Vienna annually and very near our place too. Hubby and I would certainly prepare for this come October. We will all each dress up as an anime character. 🙂
