Oooh, that's nice ! my first three months I lived in Nakamura- bashi, a station close to Nerima on the Seibu-Ikebukuro Line.
It's really calming around there. Never been to Hoya though.

Hehe, yes it's more fun this way.
I work as a service/ support Technician. I install machines in libraries. I don't know if you have them in the U.S but over here we have machines that take care of returned books, like a big machine that sorts them.

Well, yes it did help a lot to have a Japanese girlfriend. Specially when it comes to speaking since it helped me get used to it.
Since you where living with a host family, where you sort of a exchange student? Did they have a son/daughter that was studying in the U.S while you where studying in Japan?

Same here! The thing I find the most fun about anime is that I now understand the culture more and I love it when i see places in animes that I have actually seen in real life! It just gives me so much happines.

Yes! I know what you mean, it's really hard to describe. It's just a really warm feeling, atleast for me. And it's probably a mix of all that you described.
Exactly, it's always so cal. It's calm in Sweden aswell but not the same kind of calm.

Hehe yeah, scandinavia / Sweden has a lot in common with Japan but everything is just so much smaller but I guess it has its own beauty.
Hmmm, that's a hard one, I don't know how much the immigrants actually have to do with the problems we are having. To be honest Sweden is doing rather OK, it's not like our criminal rates have gotten worse so I always think people overreact when it comes to immigrants.
That said I do think we need to be careful when we consider taking in more people since we no longer have any housing and also it's hard to integrate them into society.

that's nice ! There are certain things that are nicer in smaller rural areas. I just miss the convenience :P All stores close around 18:00 over here except for restaurants + we don't have that many big stores.

Wow, that sounds like a fun idea! that way you really get to enjoy the scenery.
I went to Mt.Fuji but I didn't have the time to hike.
Maybe next time.

You are lucky ! sounds like so much fun, I suppose Hokkaido is like over here during the winter :P So if I go to Hokkaido I'm not going during the winter xD Already have too much cold.
I would like to see the crystal clear beaches in Okinawa, it looks so beautiful. Is it like in the pictures?

Shirakawago is really nice! I have been there too. aaaah that's sad, you should go again! It's really nice in the summer. Everything is green.
But I bet it was a nice experience either way !

Hehe, it's funny because i Lived in Ikebukuro and was studying in a Japanese language school very close to Waseda.
So I know the area pretty well. Small world ;-) In the end i ended up studying the language for two years because my focus shifted a bit.
I wanted to put my focus on Japanese before moving back to Sweden. I lost a bit of interest in working with music since I got a taste to how stressful it is + very bad wages. I still make music though but for my own pleasure.
Atm I work as a technician, which I am enjoying a lot.

I didn't get that many Japanese friends but I currently have a Japanese girlfriend. We started living together in Japan and she now lives with me here in Sweden. We have been here for a little bit more than 1 year.
Hehe, I'm not very good at anything but speaking...... My plan was to stay for one year in Japan so I thought it would be better to get used to speaking with people so i didn't put much effort on studying Kanji.
Which of course ended up being a mistake since I got together with my girlfriend and decided to stay for one more year. Because of that I was a bit behind in Kanji but it went OK never the less.

Oooh I See , so did you have your interest for anime before you decided to move to Japan or did it come once you started to study Japanese?
I wish I would have tried living with a host family to begin with, I lived in a so called shared house which was nice too.
I miss Japan a lot to be honest. Mostly because Stockholm where I live doesn't compare much to anything in Japan and because of the culture and ''feeling'' you get over there + donkihote ;-) Sweden is not a very convenient country. Since you live in the U.S im guessing you don't have the same feeling of moving back to a ''small city''.
The main reason we decided to live here instead of in Japan was because of the work ethics in Japan... I don't want to live like they do. I don't mean it in a bad way, I have a lot of respect for how they live.
Here in Sweden we have a lot of freedom so in the end we can spend about 1 month in Japan every year if we wanted to. Living in Japan the reverse would sadly not have been possible and also it would have been harder to find a good job.

wow, that sounds like a lot of fun ! Any specific areas you got to spend time in ? Right around the time I was living there.Moved back to Sweden late 2014. What places would you like to go to ? I would like to go to Hokkaido and Okinawa since I never had the chance to.
It is the same for me, I got to see the ''big'' cities but have the rural areas left, altough I got to see some of it travelling with my girlfriend and her parents. Mostly around Nagoya since that is where they live.

Wow, I am impressed you noticed.
Thank you !

Btw I read our discussions up to now. I ended up living in Japan for 2 years.
So I now know a fair bit of Japanese ^^ Thank you for all your help back then! Im bad with Kanji though :P
Focused too much on the speaking part.

How come you studied in Waseda btw ?

Have a nice weekend!

Hmm, the thing is that what makes me enjoy evangelion is because how shinji react to the situtation imposed to him.
It is perhaps his whiny attitudes that makes the anime suspense and disturbing. Shinji has a very weak character, and a confuse person.
And when that pressure and responsibility is given to him, isn't it quite normal to react in such way?

Also, do you watch shinsekai yori?
philtecturophy Mar 16, 3:57 PM
So what do you think of the anime evangelion?
Yuukiism Mar 8, 5:13 PM
You SHOULDA. Also cuz Mordred >>>>>> Arturia for me. http://myanimelist.net/profile/SheIsMine . Mordred has her own happy lil account.
Yuukiism Mar 8, 4:10 PM
Also, Arturia wouldn't be caught dead walking around town in a tube top.
Yuukiism Mar 8, 4:09 PM
Lookit her hair and sword. They be different. Also She is Saber of Red because of the faction, not becaus of the colors she wears. There were Black and the Red faction in Fate/Apocrypha. There ain't a blue faction.
Yuukiism Mar 7, 10:12 PM
It's Mordred, not Arturia. Pleb.
