  5. Rosie's Japanese teacher, Kata-Sensei, says these are real. I don't know if he can be completely trusted, though I do think he always tells the truth!

  6. I love Japanese art, fashion, history, food, but DAMN, I HATE Japanese TV! As if their own shows are not already bad enough, they have to go and make American shows as stupid as their's!
