  1. As a kid in Japan, I loved watching “Crayon Shin-chan” every week. It was a pleasant surprise, to say the least, when I discovered that it was airing on Adult Swim some time back.

    What a terrible way to go. My condolences to the family.

    Thanks, Yoshito-san.

  2. I went on a real hike up a mountain recently with some friends to mohonk national park. I was on a ladder 100ft up in some cave.. not something anyone should do on their own.
