Currently a a double major in Linguistics and Japanese. What a magnificent language Japanese is! I just wish more people would pursue it for its own inherent beauty and uniqueness rather than just because they like anime. I'm surrounded by so many people who mindlessly repeat what they hear in anime but have an otherwise general disregard for the language as a whole. How unfortunate....
Anyway, if you couldn't tell from my major, I hope to be a linguist, fostering communication between English- and Japanese-speaking locales. If I don't have that opportunity, I'd always be happy doing more translation work or helping a tourism agency that assists non-native speakers. If I somehow come across a miraculous, money-spawning tree, I'll go and get a PhD in Japanese so I can finally create a Japanese program at a Christian college and give students more options for pursuing the study of the Japanese language through private education.
Now...on to the anime and manga! Let's have some fun!
Oh, and if you were wondering, my profile picture is of Sanetoshi from the wonderful anime 輪るピングドラム (Mawaru Penguindrum). Go watch it. Seriously. Sagacious story and dynamic characters aside, watch it for the penguins....
