AOTW = Adventures of the Weeaboo


I feel for Japan, just as much as I feel for everybody else dying in this world.

Also, Jills friend Anna, everyone!

Although I feel bad for what happened to Japan last year and all of the sad things in the world, but the last panel is very predicable! XD

I feel evil for laughing ^_^ (these are -hilarious- by the way)

I can understand why it was so shocking though, I mean, compared to those other things. Japan isn't a third world country- basically it was a big... 'THIS COULD BE YOU!' - (except I live on a mountain.) I worried for my japanese friend, and shounen jump took some time off.... (and I worried when the nuclear plants were out of hand) but yeah, there were clearly people who thought, 'I like anime... I like Japan... THAT MAKES THEM MORE IMPORTANT THAN NEW ZEALAND(what, there was a disaster there too?)' which was irksome.

Guess that happened mostly because people in Japan don't have hostile conditions like Africa or places in the Middle East which are publicized a lot-ish...but I see your point here :) Great last panel :thumbsup:

pssh. So true. I have equal amounts of sadness for those suffering, no matter the place.

I have to say, though.. I was brought to my knees when I watched the tsunami hitting towns via a live feed. Watching people.... live.. I cried.

Oh no absolutely, I'm really sensetive towards watching live footage too.. Or people suffering in general ) : Especially the footage from the bombings in Oslo, Norway and the following killings on a nearby island.. And that feels more real somehow than the incident in Japan just because it's so much closer to where I live

Yeah, that would have been real close, eh? I noticed your animation to that. That was real nice. I'm glad you did it. :']

When I turned on the TV to find the live feed for Japan...... I came at just the right time. Or wrong time, I suppose. I got to watch it sweep up into a coastal town. And because I was watching it live, I wished with all my heart that I could have reached through the TV and plucked up the tiny cars from the road ways as they fled, were then engulfed, and I realized I was watching people die live. I remember crying at the TV, telling the cars they were going the wrong way, don't go that way. I could see everything, but I couldn't do anything. I felt so helpless. I can't imagine what the men in the helicopter were feeling then. I never hated the invention of live feeds so much in my life as in that moment.

in this particular case it got worse and deserved extreme reactions. though the initial panic was far too strong, compared to the other stuff going on in the world. people are so much more emotional if they feel they can relate (no matter if they actually can, or not). :XD:

I kinda liked the japanese reaction in the beginning. every non-japanese was panicking, offering help and such, and the japanese just shrugged and said "what? the catastrophe was worse than others before, but it's nothing we're not used to in general." :D
they ARE very well trained when it comes to earthquakes and tsunamis. too bad it escalated so much afterwards.

Yeah, not only did the tsunami set Japan in motion, but the internet as well : D
