Japan - the land of the dolls

i've had some interesting links sent to me from japan and too the people who sent them - thanks.

what i could really use is someone who can read japanse to provide some descriptions of the sites and of course find more too. oh and the descriptions need to be in english just to be clear ;-)

I'm sorry, I can't tell either, all I see are placeholder blocks.

:p So Edo, for all we know you look like you are inviting Asudem here to play some Breakout, you have the paddle, and the bricks, now where's the ball to knock up into the bricks like a proper video game should have? *lol*

**Teasing here**, sorry. :)

Oh, and I thought I apologized in email for being so paranoid lately, but if I hadn't, here it is: sorry about my being on edge.

It isn't you. I've been seeing a bit too much News lately, and Yahoo's policy on their News Message boards is "let the idiots own the things" basically, which gets me nutso. That is the terse version, sorry to digress. Point is, I am sorry to be on edge, paranoid, etc., and I hope that now that I have stuff to do it will stop. ;)

I guess some people need to get a Japanese language pak.

Asudem, I'll help in whatever way I can. i won't guarantee I'll do pages of boring blog translations...

Brad, see my IM. I look forward to seeing Brother Beezlebub of the Church of Satan Reborn giving those poor misguided Christians his sermons on Godfire and Angelstone...

I had forgetten this, but Babelfish will translate (not very well, mind you) Japanese to English. You can even do full web pages if you have the URL.

The problem with Japanese is it has no future tense and is built back to front. Each Kanji can have from 2 to 3 different meanings. everything is very open to interpretation and very vague. machine translation such as Babelfish does really messes up the meaning.

Understood. I tried learing Japanese once. Not very easy. Then you move onto Chinese . . . oh, boy.

Chinese cosplay sites...

Moo dame da!

found lot's of great stuff as Cosplay is taking off in China, there is zentai and even a few doller types. But my Chinese sucks when it comes to reading.

Lot's of nice pictures though...
