nice one, mks. You deserve a thumb up, I'll let you choose where.
H-Ero, I'd give you a hug if we weren't sworn enemies by now. Worst thing about japanese classes and related courses is the amount of weaboos you find. It's fine if you like something, just don't make it the only goal of your life, damn it. Try broaden your views a little! Boy do I hate weaboos.
I had one teacher who was into anime, manga and games in the 3 months I stayed in Japan. We would often mention kanji or readings related to, for instance, hokuto no ken. Or Sanpei, too, 'cause she wanted to explain the second character used in the name, I saw it on the calendar and brought it up :v
"Why do you know about sanpei anyway?", she asked. trolololo. I feel guilty of weabooism just thinking about that...
Too bad she was a hardcore christian and tried more than once to bring me to some church she knew <_<
