  1. I can't wait to see photos! I know about the food.... There's this Japanese Italian family restaurant I ate at a few times while there. (I also finally got to try okonomiyaki! Yay Ranma 1/2 dream realized!) I had this Japanese ish spaghetti with long skinny mushrooms? Which apparently is only native to Asia so I can't replicate here 😞 but it was oddly SO GOOD!!!) Also unrelated this happened Wednesday
  2. Hmm maybe mandalorian?
  3. Yesssss more rpgs just to get this place active again!
  4. I stayed in chiba as that's where my friend lived that I visited. It was just a two week trip. From there I got to see: Narita shrine Asakusa Tokyo skytree Harajuku (cat Cafe here... Scottish folds dressed as vampires so cute!) Takeshita Street, the crossing and Hachiko statue in shibuya. Odaibya (gundam statue and gundam Cafe) Ikebukuro (looked up real life places in Durarara) Akihabara for gashapon store and ff15 cafe DisneySea Osaka for takoyaki on the street, universal studios japan Kyoto for fushimi Inari shrine (we got stormed
  5. So it's check in time. It's been over eight years. Were your predictions true? I actually went the Healthcare route, getting my cna and working in in home health. Surprisingly I am married, a step mom and another baby on the way. I do have a car.... Second car actually. I upgraded. I also finally got to visit Japan in 2016. It's so strange knowing I'm going to be a stay at home mom soon too.
  6. You're telling me!!! I feel very old
  7. It may be better to plan for September because I could technically give birth at any time now. We can spam the discord server haha. It's just a matter of getting the word out.
  8. I think that having another reunion is long overdue. Who is with me?
  9. My two week isolation/quarantine started today. With everyone with their panties in a bunch...and I suppose rightfully so, my doctor wants me to take extra precautions before I am technically due with this baby in two weeks. It feels so very weird that I am not going to be a working adult for twelve weeks and perhaps when I finish soaking FMLA for all it's worth, become a stay at home mom. I mean, it would be crazy to work in healthcare with a newborn in the house...especially with someone with such a weak immune system. Anyway, it has been only one day. How on earth did most folks do this sin
  10. Hello! That is very admirable to be doing that. I will check it out. I apologize that this place is a lot quieter than it used to be almost 15 years ago or more. TheOtaku, the sister site for these forums actually does have a discord server already if you want to try it out as well. Granted it is more of a replacement of the old chat room that the website used to have than just an official news source or anything. I hope to possibly see you there! http://www.discord.gg/APVeFUY
  11. Yin and Yang! Girl being Yang like in RWBY!
  12. Whoa times totally change cool!
  13. There was a chatroom on the sister site, TheOtaku. However the company who hosted the software went out of business and Adam, the creator hasn't found a good replacement for it yet.
  14. Greetings. So I reached out to the family and they told me that everything has been paid for. However if you would like to, they would rather you donate whatever you are willing to the places that helped Desbreko with his treatments to further the cause of finding a cure for cancer. I have found them for you guys and the links are below: City of Hope American Cancer Society Stanford Medicine Thanks for the willingness to help guys. Laura/Japan
  15. I talked to Shinmaru about it. Seems like a good idea. Let me talk to Mrs. Goudy to see if I can get a response first
  16. I am still very depressed that Desbreko is gone. However I don't think he would like this place that he loved so much or worked so hard for go to waste or gather dust. Sooooo what did everyone think of the world series game tonight? That was one crazy game to have lasted so long PLUS a rain delay.
  17. It was the least I could do. I am glad it helped lead you here. He was an amazing person. I've cried so much.I commend you for posting. I know from having parents who are not tech savvy either that joining, let alone posting on a message board can be a daunting task. It really warms my heart that we managed to get our memories and thoughts to you. Thank you so much for sharing him with us all these years.
  18. Now I suppose this memorial tribute will be rather embarrassing and jumbled. At least it is coming from the heart and with honesty. His death and suffering came as quite a shock to me as I barely check twitter much anymore due to being busy. He was one of my first friends on here. He was always there when I had to stay up to finish a paper or a school project. He always had advice for issues I had and always had a screenshot to cheer me up. He also was a huge encouragement to me when I was dealing with depression and issues with my mom throughout high school and college. It was thanks to him t
  19. I haven't posted here in forever. I just got back from Japan earlier this month and decided to share one of my favorite photos of me so far.
  20. I'm sad that the Otakuboards Reunion is over. Can't everyone just come back for good?

  21. As one friend put it with any Shaun T regime (I do own hip hop abs) it doesn't matter too much what you eat, however your body will eventually crave the good foods to get the energy to survive his stuff than not. Aka cheeseburger will not give you sufficient energy compared to a steak dinner or something. I sort of had a falling out with hip hop abs because they wanted me to be on a strict food diet. Being poor and as busy as I am it was hard to do. I AM excited for Insanity but the price range did put me off a little. (found the DVDs for cheap at a thrift store)
  22. Where do you think you would be in life if it weren't for Otakuboards, without your circle of friends here, or any of that? I may of gotten more sleep, may not gotten as hurt by a few experiences, may of studied more... But over all I don't think I would have as many friends or learned about life as much as I did. I was a sheltered child.
  23. Japan

    David Bowie

    I never really became a fan of him till I watched Labyrinth for the first time back in 2009. I always knew he was a legend however. I was more of a Queen fan growing up. Thanks to that this song is all the more chilling.
  24. I'll try my hardest! xD The desire to be sexy in cosplay is strong!
