I'm only now looking through my computer and, apparently, at one point, I downloaded the first chapter of a manga called 'BxB Boys'. I don't know why I did that, because it's certainly not something I would've chosen on my own, but it's cute, funny and...uh, inspirational. I haven't seen it in a bookstore though and I don't know how to pronounce the title, so I couldn't ask for it. I don't know if it has furigana or not either. I'll read ones I really like even if they don't have furigana (Dolls, Weiss Side B, Loveless and, now, Princess Princess), but otherwise it's just too slow-going.

Speaking of which, I've got two WSB translations to post. However, although I planned to go backwards, I've run out of magazines. If anyone has scans of chapter #28 or below (but not the tankouban -- I have them!), please let me know!




We watched Yakitate!! Japan last night... They went to CHIBA! Specifically Tomiura, which is famous for biwa. This doesn't refer to Japanese lutes, but a type of Japanese plum (loquat). And yeah, I had to look that up! ^^;; Kuroyan got two different tart types (hot and cold) at the same time, which seems to have opened up a portal to Middle Earth. Also, am I the only one that thinks that Kuroyan is... well, rather nice? I like to think of it as the Koyasu Takehito Effect because, well, really...

Please rate Kuroyanagi's hotness.

Thank you for letting me get that poll out of my system.




I've had two days off, but I've done nothing! This is mostly to do with the fact that, at the back of my mind, I still don't really believe I'm not going to try for Tenimyu tickets on Yahoo Auctions. *sigh* So I might need a bit of extra money later...

I don't suppose anyone could tell me how to do a bank or postal transfer? Just in case!

(And if I've no plans to do this, why have I spent so long adding the best auctions to my watchlist...?)

Anyway. I've mostly just studied Japanese and written some things. What do other people do on their days off? I don't know anyone else here who has the same days off as me... Plus 'no tickets angst' has made me kind of restless. ^^

Maybe some sightseeing? Perhaps I could do that meme where people tell you to take a picture of something specific? That might actually be a fun way to spend my days off!

So... what would you like me to take a picture of? Anywhere in Tokyo/Chiba/Shinagawa is good, although that might mean one photo a week...

Ah. So *THAT*'s what loquats are related to...
...I saw them in a Farmer's Market during the fall, and I couldn't figure out what kind of fruit it was. Cause it sounded like Kumquat, but kumquat it was not...

So I bought some. And they were... interesting.

Thanks for the factoid~

It seems to be one of those Japanese words that, even when you find out the English translation, makes little sense. Like most of the Japanese fish I could name, actually. ^^

Well, usually a bank transfer is a wire transfer done by your bank. You have to have the bank account number of the person you are transfering the money too and the routing number of that bank. You need both.

There are international postal money orders but I don't know of a postal transfer unless it's sort of a wire transfer like Western Union. You take them cash plus whatever they are going to charge you and the other person goes into the local office and signs for it and gets the cash.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! I'm gonna do it! I'm going bid and face the wrath of the Japanese banking system!!
