After a while… I see the most important difference between Americans and the Chinese

Standard

I’m sorry for not posting for SO long, I was having a hard time settling in. :) Yes, tears and despair and all that.

Anyway, the lack of otakuism here is just sad. Really. I swear, there is nobody here like me. I mean, some international students come to my room, see the posters and go: “Oh! I know that.” There’s a nice Japanese girl here (upperclassman though) who saw my Conan poster and got excited, but she’s probably not a shoujo fan.

One Chinese teacher did tell me she liked Kimi no Todoke. But Americans look at my posters and just ignore them, or give me a strange look…. and I find that depressing.

So now, I see the most important difference between Americans and the Chinese. In a Chinese classroom (including international), you can always find at least one person who likes anime and/or manga. I swear it. There were, like, four people in my old class back in China who liked anime (including me). Here, there is probably, like, maybe five at most per school in America.

So I just have to ask…

WHERE ARE ALL OF YOU PEOPLE ON ARINAFANS AND ANIME WORDPRES????

Haha, that’s true. Japanese people would never wear urusei yatsura t-shirts, unless they’re otakus. Which I am. I would totally die for an Arinacchi manga t-shirt!!! Don’t throw it away!! :D

Stupid fashion is universal Who knew the simple act of wearing a Urusei Yatsura T-shirt to bed would spark a culture mini battle? For those who have not experienced the joy of Uresei Yatsura, just know that it’s a delightful little gem of a 70’s manga turned anime written by Takahashi Rumiko (also known for creating Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha). While I’m not a total otaku, I do have a soft spot for the works of Ms. Takahashi and seized the chance to get a limited edition Uniqlo … Read More
