This is short, and I realize that, but I’m bored and in China. I’ve gotta amuse myself somehow, right?

In case some of you weren’t aware, and you really should have been, Zach has recently gotten himself over to Japan (Kyoto, specifically).

I don’t know about you, but for him, it’s basically a dream come true. This semester is like an academic wet dream for him, come to life. The difference? It’s not just in his pants. It’s everywhere.

That sounded wrong.

Anyway, I’m pretty sure we’ll all be seeing tons of new content from him. Zach will be on anime/manga/Akihabara overload, and I somewhat selfishly expect to benefit from it. Consider this a challenge to our favorite geek of all things Japanese; I’m not sure if it’ll see the light of day, as I’m just a contributor for the blog and have to submit everything for review from Zach, but if so, more power to him. That’ll mean Zach has balls… otaku balls. Made out of old crushed up old Nintendo cartridges, or decapitated pokemon, or something.

Acceptance

Acceptance

As you can see, I’ve been accepted into Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be leaving, but rest assured I’ll stay in Norman for as long as possible (read: March) before leaving for home, then Japan. That said, I won’t have classes next semester in the mean time, and hopefully I’ll be getting a job (anyone have any suggestions?).

While I’m there I’ll be maintaining this blog, but my professional writing major friend has convinced me that writing a study abroad blog will be a good thing. I can’t help but agree. So when I post here, I’ll probably post there. Hopefully, since I’m bringing my camera with me, I’ll have more pictures than I know what to do with. Talk about which, are there any anime pilgrimages you think I should make while I’m there other than the Comic-cons and Akihabara?

Anyway, I’m off to study for finals and play some Persona 4 before my last final at 8am tomorrow (eugh! why 8? why Friday? I need to get back to Corpus!).
