I don't think they're targeting other students, I'm the only American. Most of them are Chinese, Sri Lankan or Vietnamese.

They will say no lol. I'm not good.

I sort of feel the same way. I get most of my manga at Book Off or in sets on Yahoo Auctions, or I go to the Animate in Ikebukuro if I'm looking to buy something new. Also I like the game centers in Ikebukuro too. Sunshine Street is a nice place. But I do like the atmosphere of Akiba. I've never bought PC parts here though, but I'm dying to build a new rig.

Oh yeah, what can I call you? My name is Josh.

It was so long ago now, reporting it would do nothing. And on the bright side things became a lot better for me after it happened so I don't really care anymore. But I've become very well aware over the past year of how often crimes are committed by Chinese, Sri Lankan, Vietnamese, etc. So many of them come here on student visa's and exploit their visa, it's sick.

Cool! I hope you enjoy it. If you hear about an American in the Akabane group, that's me.

On another note, do you like Akiba? or how do you feel about Akiba? as a kid I was always under the impression that anyone who loves anime must love Akiba lol. I like Akiba, but I don't know anything fun to do there besides game centers. I feel like it's mostly a tourist place, so I'm not sure what Japanese people might find enjoyable to do in the area, but I always seen it in anime like Steins;Gate, and of course that Akiba's Trip game.

I always loved anime and manga as a kid, and that's kind of what made me want to come here. that's always been my motivation. It's crazy to think just a few summers ago I was sitting on my bedroom floor watching No Game No Life and dreaming about how I wanted to live in Japan, and now it's a reality. In the beginning it was a lot of fun, then I hit a rough patch for a while, but things became much easier as time went on. I was pretty lonely for a while and I lived in my school dorms, so I was in kind of a bad situation. Eventually I was threatened by some Chinese students and had to leave the dorm for my safety, I was homeless for almost two weeks (I stayed with my coworker for a few days and then in a hotel) and that's when I met my girlfriend. Since meeting her things have gotten much better for me. Overall I think my life here is much better than it was in America.

The ベーゴマ clubs organize once a month each. Akabane is always the first Sunday of the month, I'm not sure exactly when Fuchu or Nerima meet, I always check the page. I'm going to Nerima on the 24th, that's my one year anniversary of coming to Japan. but afterwards I'm probably going out for dinner and maybe a movie.

I'll send you the links.

oops, lots of typos. sorry.
Nenpai Jun 11, 2017 10:56 PM
That's a good idea, I should make her try it with English subtitles. If I watch Crayong Shin Chan with Japanese subtitles I can usually understand everything.

My Visa was originally for studying Japanese, but I'm changing visa types later this year. I know some basic words and phrases when I came, but the most advanced thing I knew was how to ask where the toilet is. Also hiragana and katakana. Everything else I learned after I came.

But Big Bang Theory has a lot of American pop culture jokes, lol. They are about superheroes and stuff a lot. But I guess you understand those jokes.

They're club tournaments, so all ages are welcome. there's a lot of adults and kids. The club I normally play with is in Akabane, but there's also a club in Fuchu that I've been to and one in Nerima that I'm visiting soon. Also on July 1st I'm going to a club in Kawagoe. They organize through Facebook but I can give you the link if you're interested, or you can just tag along sometime.

We watch shows together, but it's a little hard to find stuff sometimes because she needs Japanese subtitles. Her English is good, but she can't watch TV completely in English.

My Japanese isn't so good. I can talk a little, but there is still so much I don't understand. I started studying last July, so almost 1 year ago.

What shows are you watching right now?

ベーゴマ is hard! I'm getting better at it, I can make it spin and I'm pretty good but I always lose at tournaments. I used to play ベイブレード as a kid, so I think ベーゴマ is interesting because it's very similar. It's a good way for me to make friends.

I don't really understand it myself since in America we use texting, but I blame high school girls. When in doubt, blame high school girls.

Mostly the same. Watch TV shows, do stuff on the internet, sometimes I go to the game center (usually it's just for MaiMai). Recently I've been watching Orange is the New Black with my girlfriend, and we like to watch Boruto together. I like games on consoles and PC but I haven't bought any new games for a while and my PC is just a typical laptop so I'm limited to what I can play on PC.

I used to play Phantasy Star Online 2 but I haven't played in a while. I want to get back into it eventually though but I'm lazy.

A few times a month I play ベーゴマ, I've been doing that since March. lots of fun.
Nenpai Jun 11, 2017 8:24 PM
Wait, really? lol. So how do you normally communicate with your friends? I always assumed that everyone here used line except for maybe some of the older people.

Other than anime what are your hobbies? Do you go to game centers? Do you play MaiMai?
Nenpai Jun 11, 2017 7:35 PM
No way? This whole time I thought you were an American or European. Your English is great!

Sorry to hear about your company, hopefully it won't die out before you can find something new.

By the way, do you have Line? I might need to email you my QR code though, I can't verify my account. But it would be cool to have another friend in the area with similar interests.
Nenpai Jun 11, 2017 8:44 AM
I do! I really enjoy it, it's a really small school but I'm really close with my boss and I genuinely enjoy all of my coworkers. The kids all love me and working with them is a lot of fun (but I like working with kids anyway). I don't know how other kindergartens​ are, as I've only worked here, but the pay is pretty good considering my age, but I'm only part time because of Japanese school.

That sounds awesome. Do you have a lot of overtime though? I have a buddy working at an IT job here but he always gets up when it's time to go, so no overtime for him. We're similar ages, cool! I'm 20. Where are you originally from and are you here permanently? When did you arrive?
Nenpai Jun 11, 2017 7:36 AM
Thanks. I originally came here to study Japanese, but next year I'll finish at my school and then I'll switch to working full time. I work at a kindergarten right now and I enjoy it because the schedule is really good, so I hope to stay there.

What do you do here? How old are you?

I live with my girlfriend in Higashi Murayama right now, but we're moving to Higashi Yamato in September. Not a university student, but my days are split in half between work and Japanese language classes. I have plenty of free time though.
