OMG!! My computer was broken!!!!!! I'm writing new post from the one of my school:(!! It's toooooo bad:P! I can't update my blog as I like....

Do you know Japanese *manga:)? It means "comic" in Japan. I heard that many people who are from other countries are suprised at Japanese people because children don't only read mangas, but adults also read and enjoy them!!! Japanese mangas are high quality and storytelling!!! They are like movies. Do you know why Japanese mangas are much better? I think that the most important cause is "Tezuka Osamu"!! He is the most famous cartoonist! He made many techniques of drawing mangas well. For example, he painted one page over with black ink to express main character's dispair. He also invented many other techniques, and a number of people imitated it, and, finally, Japanese mangas became developed. Tezuka Osamu was the first person who made animation.

In Japan, there are a huge number of interesting comics even for adults. If you come to Japan, you should go to a book store, and study Japanese, and read manga!!!

Hey Haruna!
I'm already a big fan of Japanese manga and anime (and toys and movies and culture and food and...)

I have so much of it that I think I could open my own shop!

You might enjoy this...

Youth is not a time of life,
it is a state of mind,
it is not a matter of rosy cheeks,
red lips and supple knees;
it is a matter of the will,
a quality of the imagination,
a vigor of the emotions;
it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

Youth means the temperamental predominance of courage over timidity,
of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.
This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty.
Nobody grows old merely by a number of years.
We grow old by deserting our ideals.

Years may wrinkle the skin,
but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
Worry, fear, self distrust bows the heart
and turns the spirit back to dust.
Whether sixty or sixteen,
there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonder,
the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next,
and the joy of the game of living.

In the center of your heart and my heart
there is a wireless station;
so long as it receives messages of beauty,
hope, cheer, courage
and power from men and from the Infinite,
so long are you young.
When the aerials are down,
and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism
and the ice of pessimism,
then you are grown old, even at twenty.
But as long as your aerials are up,
to catch waves of optimism,
there is hope you may die
young at eighty.

- Konosuke Matsushita's favorite poem,
Excerpted from John P. Kotter's Matsushita Leadership

I like Tezuka Osamu's manga:D
such as, "Astroboy".
It started serialization since 1952! It's about 52 years ago! But I think ALL Japanese people know about "Astroboy" by Tezuka Osamu. It's wonderful!!!

Wow!! It's beautiful and wonderdul poem. I like it....It was the first time to read it.

I think so too. The mind of people dictate thier ages....I think that there are many people who are like young both in a good sense and bad sense....

Thank you for a great poem;)

I haven't read Astroboy....I like "Black Jack"!! Have you read it? It's the best one of all Tezuka's mangas.

Thanks for your advice:) I wanna make friends from other countries too:D!!

Yes!! I am plannig to post new blogs about Japanese cultures...but I have no idea what people who are from countries want to know.....Do you have any question about Japan? You can ask me anything;D!!!
