Hell Hath No Fury Like An Otaku Scorned

I can’t wait to share this with you.  After Christmas, I discovered this blog post by fellow blogger Michael Vincent of sunrisingblog titled “WHEN THE ANGRY OTAKU STRIKES ON FACEBOOK AND SPEAKS INCOMPREHENSIBLE ENGLISH AND JAPANESE”.  It was one of the most hilarious things that I’ve ever read, and honestly, it made my day.

Michael starts his post by asking you, “What happens when you make an otaku mad?”

Apparently, “this” happens.

angry otaku

I cheered my lungs out for Fuyukai desu.  I’m so impressed.  I think that you’ll be able to decipher what it means just by knowing some basic Japanese.  But for those of you who don’t get it, I’ll give a rough “translation”.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch?  I’ll have you know that I graduated top of my class in Japanese 3, and I’ve been involved in various Japanese tutoring sessions, and I have over 300 perfect test scores.  I am trained in kanji, and I’m the top letter writer in all of southern California.  You are nothing to me but just another weaboo.  I will kill the fuck out of you with vocabulary the likes of which has never been seen before on this continent, mark my fucking words.  You think you can get away with talking that shit to me over the internet?  Think again, fucker.  As we speak, I am contacting my secret network of otakus across the USA, and your IP is being traced right now so you  better ready for the rain, maggot.  The rain that will kill the pathetic little thing you call your life.  You’re fucking dead, baby.

I re-arranged words a bit for clarity, but as I keep saying, I just can’t help but be impressed.  Wow.  I didn’t know that otaku are such a scary bunch.  Wow.  Huh?  What did you say?  You calling me an otaku?  Uhm, well, if that’s the case, uhm, you better not mess with us then.

As you can tell, I find this very amusing.  However, I want to tell you clearly that I don’t support this kind of threatening letters.  There.  I just want to make it clear, alright?

Thanks again to Manuel Vincent of sunrisingblog for sharing this fascinating story.  And to you who are reading this right now, be careful not to anger an otaku, alright?  It seems that the “secret network” of otaku is a fearsome thing to contend with.

Sayounara 2014! Arigatou for Such a Wonderful Blogging Year!

How swiftly the year has gone by.  7 months ago, I was toying with the idea of creating a blog exclusively about anime & manga.  I daydreamed, I planned, and I wrote some posts.  6 months ago, I created fujinsei.  This is not my first blog, but I can confidently say that this is the most enjoyable one.

MY FAVOURITE BLOGGING BUDDIES
For the 6 months since I became a member of the anime & manga blogosphere, I’ve met several kindred spirits who constantly provide me with a sense of belonging with our mutual passion for anime & manga.

♦ Tierra <seattlekifujin.wordpress.com>
You are one of the first people that I connected since creating this blog.  I don’t think you know how much I appreciate your friendship.  Thank  you for your thoughtful e-mails that never fail to cheer me up.  You’re always the first one to notice whenever my blog has not been updated for a while.  Thanks for being a friend (and a mentor).  Keep in touch!

♦ miharusshi <animeraifu.wordpress.com>
Miha-chan!  I value your frequent comments about my posts.  I appreciate that we have similar interests, and I always enjoy our conversations.  You have a great blog, and I admire your insightful posts.  I also think that being both Filipinos add another layer of familiarity between us.  Thanks for being an awesome blogging buddy.  Keep on blogging!

Sakura Namikaze <thewinterinmysoul.wordpress.com>
Whenever I think of Slam Dunk, I’m always reminded of you.  Well, we connected because of Slam Dunk after all.  Maraming salamat sa lahat ng mga daldalan natin sa e-mail.  Base sa mga usapan natin, I concluded na pareho tayong loka-loka (in a good way, of course).  Good luck sa Naruto at ‘wag masyadong adik sa BSB.  Salamat uli, ha.  Keep in touch!

♦ Denny Sinnoh <dennysinnoh.wordpress.com>
Oh gosh.  This guy cracks me up every time.  Thanks for your hilarious comments and suggestions.  I always appreciate them, although my stomach hurts all the time from laughing at them.  Keep on blogging, alright?  I especially like your posts about those beautiful kimono.

mocorochi <mocorochi.wordpress.com>
It’s only recently that we connected, but I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog posts.  Congratulations on completing your 30-Day Anime Challenge!  Well done!  Keep on blogging.

I also want to give special mention to  Chi.Ai,  mkariyo,  nyankoto Jackie Hadel.

Thank you all for being such wonderful blogging buddies.  I’m so glad to have met all of you, and I’m looking forward to discussing more about our mutual passion for anime, manga, and the Japanese culture.  Let’s have another great blogging year this 2015, alright?

ANIME CHALLENGE

On October 4, I accepted the 30-Day Anime Challenge.  On October 6, I started with Day 1.  Since then, I’m now halfway through the challenge.  This challenge is a great blogging experience.  I’ve met other anime & manga bloggers through it.  I can’t wait to finally conquer this challenge.  To my fellow bloggers who already finished it, congratulations!  To those of you who haven’t tried it yet, I challenge you to accept this challenge.

Perhaps when I finish this, I’ll accept another challenge.  I may look for already circulating ones, or perhaps I’ll create a new challenge myself.  Hmmm.  We’ll see.

I began translating DGS episodes and posting them here for the sole reason of amusing myself.  Little did I know that my DGS posts will become the most searched for in my blog.  Wow!  That was totally unexpected.  I still translate DGS eps for amusing myself, but now that I know people are actually waiting, I began to feel a vague sense of duty.  Nevertheless, I dislike stress and pressure when it comes to my hobbies, so I won’t apologize to you for “late” translations.  But thank you very much for making my DGS translations a great success.  I hope that you enjoyed my translations and keep enjoying them in the future.

SAYOUNARA 2014!  ARIGATOU!
As I just said, 2014 has been a wonderful blogging year.  I’ll never forget it, as it’s the birthyear of fujinsei.  Once again, thank you to all of my awesome blogging buddies and loyal readers.  The year may have ended, but there’s still another year coming up where we forge many other exciting blogging experiences.  I’m looking forward to what 2015 have in store for fujinsei.

Sayounara, ne?

Tony Tony Chopper: The Tanuki, Ahem, I Mean the “Tonakai” Doctor

30-DAY ANIME CHALLENGE
< Day 14 | Day 16 >
Day 15:  Favourite Animal Sidekick, Pet, or Summoning From Any Anime

My favourite animal sidekick is Tony Tony Chopper from my number 1 favourite series ONE PIECE (ワンピース) by Oda Eiichiro (尾田 栄一郎).

chopper-tony2

I’ve written about Chopper before in a post titled “Kawaii Chopper”.  He’s one of my favourite characters in OP.  He was born as a blue-nosed reindeer, but ate the “Hito-Hito no Mi”(“hito” means “human” and “mi” is “fruit”; lit. “human-human fruit”).  As a result, he acquires human qualities such as the ability to walk on two legs and the ability to speak and understand human language.

He’s the most adorable and the cutest character in the series.  I like that he’s super intelligent (he’s a doctor, for goodness’ sake!) but at the same time, he’s also super gullible.  I particularly adore his quirks where he tries to hide with his whole body sticking out, his Shimura Ken dances whenever he’s complimented, and his famous dialogue tag, “Sonna ureshiku ne zo, kono yarou!” (context:  That doesn’t make me happy, you bastard!).

I also like that his character has depth with his painful history of being discriminated.  As a result of eating the “Hito-hito no Mi”, he finds himself unable to belong with neither the animal nor the human world.  That’s why it makes it more meaningful when Luffy finally convinces him of being one of his nakama.  The arc where the Mugiwara Pirates meet Chopper for the first time is one of the most touching.

Once again, I want to praise seiyuu Otani Ikue (大谷育江) for doing such a fantastic job in bringing Chopper’s character to life.  Her portrayal of his character multiplies his cuteness many times over.  Tony Tony Chopper of ONE PIECE is my favourite animal sidekick.  Who’s yours?

Day 14:  Anime That Never Gets Old No Matter How Many Times You’ve Re-watched It

I don’t even have think about this one.  Without a doubt, ONE PIECE (ワンピース) by Oda Eiichiro (尾田 栄一郎), is my number 1 favourite anime series.  So no matter how many times I re-watch it, it never gets old.

Takagi Akito: The Male Version of Me

30-DAY ANIME CHALLENGE
< Day 12 | Day 14 >
Day 13:  Anime Character You Are Most Similar To

This is an easy one.  Since watching the anime Bakuman. (バクマン。)I felt an immediate affinity with one of the duo protagonists, Takagi Akito.  I think that he’s the male version of me.

Like him, I’m a writer but not a “natural” one.  We’re confident in our writing, but can be quite envious of those who are able to write “naturally”–those who’re able to craft semi-polished stories just by holding a pen and paper.  I think of myself as a planner, just like Takagi.  We plan what we’re going to write first, to the point of obsessiveness.

Before he writes a manga story, he will study the trends and statistics first.  He’s the “calculating” type versus the “natural genius” type of Nizuma Eiji.  Similarly, I plan, write and schedule my blog posts days, sometimes months, before they’re actually published.  This works quite well for me because my blog can be active even when I’m not online.  I also regularly check my most popular posts, and then write related posts to exploit the interest.

We have another similarity which is our refusal to follow the path our parents wanted us to take.  In the series, Takagi’s father lost his job at a bank.  His mother revealed that she wanted Takagi to become a perfect student to avenge his father’s job loss someday.  Takagi hated this.  He lashed out at her, and shouted that he’s not her tool.  He’s his own person and he will decide his own future.

Although not as dramatic, my mother wanted me to become whatever she thought would earn a lot of money–a doctor, lawyer, accountant, model, etc.  (Sorry, mom!  I love you very, very, very much!)  But I don’t want my main motivation to be for money.  I want to work for something that I love.  So I refused to be influenced by her own desires.  Simply put, I refused to be influenced by other people’s expectations of me.  I followed and am still following my own chosen life path.  Fortunately, most of my family seems quite supportive of me.  But I know that even if they aren’t, I would still follow my own dreams because ultimately, this is my life and I’m the one who’s living it, not them.  In the end, it seems that Takagi’s mom became supportive of Takagi, too.

I think that Takagi and I still have other similarities, but of course, he’s not me and I’m not him.  He may be a fictional character, but I appreciate this sense of affinity with him.  It’s like looking at an imperfect reflection that I can use to inspire and improve myself.

Takagi Akito is the anime character that I’m most similar to.  Who’s yours?
