While watching Tantei Gakuen Q the other day, I thought that the arrow with the lips on Yukihira-san's shirt was a bit odd since it seems to imply that people should kiss her armpit. Those Japanese and their strange fetishes...
In contrast, the picture from Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko of a pair of lips with a line through them seems to imply that one should "Kill JAPAN", however, the line doesn't actually go over the lips, so that part is a bit confusing. Subtle imagery in Magical Girl shows is common in Japan, so I won't rack my brain over the actual meaning of such a poster.

The kids from School Rumble were kind enough to send me a cake celebrating two years of Kitchen Discotheque.
Naturally, I'm flattered for all the attention that I didn't have to imagine; being recognized by anime characters is quite an honor. It's unfortunate that Kotone and Ayaka couldn't make it this year, like they did last year...

At first, I thought the word "WELL COME" was just a fluke as I noted before, but it seems to be the usual way to spell the common American greeting in Japan. The two examples below, going left to right, are from Speed Grapher and Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko.
Some may think that this is simply a common spelling error, but others may think, due to its relatively frequent occurrence, that this could be a way for the government to subvert the growth of English into the Japanese language.

In the relatively normal world of Gakuen Alice, I question the use of the word "Sweat" when describing a consumable item - it seems redriciaus to use that word.
The next thing you know, someone's going to use that in the name of a drink...

I've been rather busy lately so my regular updates have suffered; hopefully, I'll be able to update more than once a week in the future.
Despite her strange cosplay fetish, her sharp wit consistently challenges the humor of her teammates, which, in turn, raises the bar for all space comedies featuring girls searching for Lost Technology.
