Welcome, "K. or Kat or Aldabateuse!" It's nice to meet you! Is it okay if I call you "Kat?" That's such a fun name!

Wait, wait... "Sailor Moon" ISN'T an authoritative slice-of-life reference on Japanese culture?? Does this also mean that teenage girls in Japan DON'T transform into magical girls? Oh, drat!

I've never been to Japan (yet), but what I know of Japan it seems like a wonderful place and culture. Despite my best efforts, I'd probably still end up being an "ugly American" if I visited Japan, though. It seems like there are many opportunities to accidentally insult people. I suppose that's true of many cultures....

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Hi there, I'm K. or Kat or Aldabateuse--I've been on this team for about a week now (I don't recall precisely). I got interested in Japanese culture when my sister became obsessed by manga. True to my scholarly nature, I decided that I was not worthy of the title of Japanophile without knowing more about the culture than was afforded by marathon viewings of Sailor Moon and "My Neighbor Totoro," so I resolved to educate myself on the manners, literature and language of Japan. And so far, although I've never been to the country, I like what I see.
