Life in the past couple of months has just been CrAzY and that is why we haven't updated for such a long time ._. . ごめんなさい！
For what concerns me I am still in Tokyo and as my Japanese level gets higher classes get more and more difficult and make less and less sense. I am serious! Just to give you an idea today I found myself doing a reading (do you do a reading? Or do you read a reading? I'm confused) about wether it is better to die because of cancer or some quick thing such as a heart attack. Now :
1- with all the wonderful things we have in this world, why would someone write a whole page about a creepy topic like this and ask me questions about it after?! My answer : because that someone is Japanese.
2- what makes you (I don't who but I need to take it out on someone) think I care to know the kanjis for the words cancer and heart attack? I am telling you, I really don't need them. Especially since I can barely make it trough normal Japanese life.
3- who would actually think it's better to die of cancer?! Because that is what that text said O.o. The writer was saying that if you get cancer you know how much time you have to live so you can say goodbye properly and do all the things you want to do. Dear Japanese person who wrote that article, I am doing what I want to do and treasuring people around me even if I don't have cancer.
Other than that I have been doing some awesome stuff in Japan such as follow a Jazz Tour in Tokyo and Kyoto and interview awesome people. Just today I interviewed an amazing nail artist and she showed us some techniques that were invented in Japan and she even made my nails with a sakura flower theme and now they look amazing. The sink full of dirty dishes doesn't look that amazing but I don't want to ruin my new fashion nails by washing them XD.
For what concerns Mea she is back to Italy now and she has been getting in the illustration world lately. She says thanks to all the amazing people here on dA who encouraged her into taking this path ^V^. As you must know at this point Mea thinks she sucks at drawing and she stops liking her own drawing about 5 seconds after she finishes them so your comments and best wishes meant a lot to her <3! She just opened a new facebook page as well so go check it if you have time !
For what concerns manga we are waiting for answers! We have a couple of manga that we sent to various contests and we are now waiting to see if they will place or not ^V^! This time we sent them instead of going ourselves because believe it or not I waited 2 months saying "I will go next week" to then never find the time -___-. I know it seems hard to believe but you should come to Japan and you would understand. If your attendance at school is less then 80-90% the immigration office will not renew your visa so you basically can't miss school unless you are sick and can't get out of bed. Not going to work is just not a possibility ._. . I mean, even asking to get out at the time when you are supposed to get out is considered bad as you are implicitly forced to stay overtime XD!
My goal for the next months is that to quit school and just work. That would be the only way for me to actually have time to do what I love the most! However, getting a working visa in Japan isn't that easy and I still need to go to class to reach a higher knowledge of Japanese. I mean, other than "cancer" and "heart attack" think at how many awful words of sickness and death they could teach me!
I also want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the new watchers we got! We really appreciate your support ;_; you keep us going when Japan crushes us!
Lately I have been reading how people struggle to find manga art supplies in their own country and I feel like it's not fair because I can find them at the store 5 minutes from my house. So I was thinking that once we reach a good number of watchers I would like to have a give away !! Maybe with manga papers, or ink, or a few screentones and that kind of stuff!
And last, what do you think of the mermaid and the nerd XD? There are actually a lot of thoughts behind it XD! I have uploaded it in our gallery and I have written a description already so if you have time go check it and tell us what you think the nerd should do with the mermaid XD!
