Anime Tattoo and a response..

October 14, 2009 Leave a comment


Originally I was thinking about doing a post where I would list my favorite anime characters with tattoos, but that turned out to be so much like a matter of factually, top 5 post, that I got pretty discourage, so now I am changed up the idea slightly..

I have two kanji tattoos on my legs, and is always on the search for a third tattoo. A tattoo that would proclaim to the world on my admiration for anime. I recall seeing a One Piece tattoo, and that was hardcore, but would the same series be the apple of a person’s eyes later?

Yes I also see people would say of how foolish can you get an image permanently inked, but because I don’t want be able to regret it, and look at it 20 years down the road to say why I got this image that I have been thinking about it for a while now. (I imagine as soon as I got my second tattoo, I started to think.)

Now if tattoos offend you, then they do. But I happen to think that if a good tattoo is good, then it is a great work of art. I don’t mind the pain that is associated with the part of getting the tattoo done.

But then I think about it some more. While it is cute, and it is an expense, I am willing to pay. I have to also think about other factors – one If I get a third tattoo, will I be pretty ostracized from going into a sento or onsen? My current tattoos aren’t that big, or noticeable unless people look. Bathhouses, or hotsprings is something I want to be able to experience in my life.. so I do wonder.

But in terms of anime character with anime, got to say I really appreciate either Levvy’s from Black Lagoon, Yusuke and Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho‘s.

Hiroshima & Nagasaki, joint bid to compete for 2020 Summer Olympic.

October 14, 2009 2 comments


Well after Tokyo recently lost 2016 Summer Olympics bid to Rio De Janeiro, and with Chicago not even making it into the second round. I hear internet news that Hiroshima & Nagasaki will be doing a joint bid for 2020 Olympics. So hopefully their country will make it to win the bid. Historically these two cities were impacted by the atomic bomb, and their desire for the Olympics for promoting peace, perhaps their message will reach the Olympics committee.

The year 2020 has a special significance for the mayors, who serve as president and vice president of Mayors for Peace, a global group of mayors from about 3,000 cities that advocate the abolition of nuclear weapons. In April last year, the group adopted the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Protocol, which calls for the elimination of nuclear weapons by 2020.
