konnichiwa !

I found JRef.com by chance while looking at an information page about Matsushita. I have a fairly eclectic music taste and one of my favorites is Yanni. While listening to yanniradio.com (a small plug here!) the song "The North Shore of Matsushita" came on, got me interested in knowing WHERE Matsushita was, and thus lead me to an ad link for JRef.com!

So, here I am to post about my love for everything Anime, Manga and to learn about Japan! Believe it! :win:

And for those who have access to Cartoon Network in America, don't forget to watch Toonami and Adult swim in the evenings for Naruto, Inu Yasha, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Ghost In The Shell - S.A.C. 2nd Gig, and many other Anime favorites!

Mata aimashou🙂

welcome to the site, I hope you learn more about japan than you ever expected :)

and not to rain on anyone's parade, but the "believe it" line is actually a nonsensical translation of the character's unique speaking style, which you would be better off not trying to emulate in either language :p

Actually, it was haru who caught the reference. I haven't seen the Cartoon Network versio, and I don't intend to.
