“UQ Holder” Creator AKAMATSU Ken Going Into Politics

UQ Holder Creator AKAMATSU Ken Going Into Politics If I had to guess, I’m known in the anime and manga fandom for two things. One being the canon Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki series. The other would be for AKAMATSU Ken-sensei’s work, mainly Negima! and UQ Holder. I used to get spoilers for both those series, though

Burger King Japan Celebrates “Good Meat Day” Did you know that there’s a “Good Meat Day” in Japan? I certainly didn’t. However, November 29 is “Good Meat Day”. Why? Well, November 29 in numbers is 11 29. As I understand it, the 11 looks similar to the katakana イイ (いい in the hiragana and ii
