About Me


Hi, I'm Oishii. I'm a starving American college student.

I have been in college for a long time. I'll probably never graduate either. I'm majoring in Linguistics with a minor in Japanese as well as studying for a certification in translating. After school I will adventure off to Japan to either teach English as a second language or become a translator.

I'm a translator for this site. I've been speaking Japanese for about 4 years. I've lost count really. The reason I love Japan and learning about Japanese goes back to when I was in 6th grade. We had a unit on Egypt, and through that I fell in love with Egyptian mythology. I went through reading about mythologies until I reached Shinto. Once while on the internet I read somewhere that Shinto still has many influences in their modern culture. Intrigued, I started researching the culture to see if I could find traces of Shinto influences and I fell in love with the country.

I enjoy other things other than my obsession with Japan. I spend my spare time reading, drawing, gaming, and writing. I also like to cook, though most of the time I'm making desserts. I've been into reading light novels from Asian countries lately. I barely have time to draw anymore, but most of the time it's fanart anyways. I like most rpgs, my top favorites being KH (of course), Professor Layton, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. I don't write too much since I have to write a lot for school. I'm in a middle of a silly Egyptian mythology tale, and I'm working on another darker story taking place in 19th century Chicago.

What else can I say. I'm a very shy person. If you talk to me in the chat and I don't reply, 99% of the time it's because I have no idea what to say and I'm most likely freaking out. Trust me, it's quite the sight to behold. Which is why I don't have a webcam... Well, if you want to know more about me, talk to me in the forum. I'm done talking about myself :P

P.S. My favorite Egyptian gods are Amun and Anubis ^^

    @Oishii: Omgg congrats! Time passes by so fast! I hope you enjoy your gap year and good luck for when you start your masters degree! I'm doing postgrad med at the moment, so pretty busy OTL. I'm sure you'll be crowned a master of the Keyblade in no time ;)

    Thanks, and the best to you too. If I need a curaga spell I know who to go to ^^

    Most Certainly!! But right now I can only us Cure xD. In the next 4 years I will gradually pick up Cura, Curaga, Curaja, Curasa and Esuna :P

Was the Hercules world not meant to be a surprise or announcement? They dropped it into the conversation and I didn't realize some of the footage was in that world. Maybe I'm just dumb :p

    He was a summon, though, wasn't he? Speaking of summons, we should have a Bambi world. Bambi was my favorite summon in KH1. He's so cute.

    I felt that Olympus was literally in every game (except DDD) and that Rock Titan was shown that there wasn't a need to act like it is a surprise.

    I know. It's obvious now. I'm really oblivious ^^;;

I think since we're getting a remake and I've never played FF7 that I'm going to play it sometime this summer. I think I'll play the Japanese version too since I heard the English translation is so-so. It should be fun :)

I'm upset Rune Factory 4 doesn't let my female character date the bachelorettes. It even takes more programming and writing just to make it so I can only date boys. I want to touch Xiao Pai's butt!

    I'm not hating on anyone so I should still be allowed to civilly express my thoughts.

    There is a time and a place to express certain thoughts. During times like this with several developments occurring with this group of people, it's kinda rough territory. :/
    Hell, there was a time people thought giving Women voting rights wasn't right or freeing black people from slavery and putting them on the same level as us wasn't right. Given time and change, opinions can be subject to much needed change. I don't agree with your thoughts on the matter but, I can stil...

    *Still respect your thoughts on the matter. I just thought I'd state my piece on the matter.

I just saw the song about Shia LeBeouf for the first time. At first I was like, 'What is going on with song?' Then I saw my uncle in the choir and I'm like 'What the firetruck?! I don't even know anymore -.-'

I started reading Pandora Hearts and finished the manga recently and it reminded me of you and omg the feels from the manga. ;~; I hope you are doing well! Are you still in Japan?

    Haha, I know what you mean. I've probably have changed my degree 8 or 9 times xD I'm going to get a masters specializing in teaching English as a second language. Then I'll live in Japan, get more skills in the language and teaching and do whatever I feel like later. I hope you are able to get a degree and carrier you want with computers. I had once thought of doing programming but I will probably teach it to myself down the road. Why don't they have degrees in Be Awesom...

    I know right? xD I feel like I can do a lot of things and then it just feels weird when you can only get like 1-2 degrees and you are decent at other stuff. They put limits on our awesomeness 'cause they can't handle it. >u<

That moment when a manga you've been reading for years comes to an end ;_; I WILL MISS YOU PANDORA HEARTS!

    I remember the time when FMA ended. Oh, and there was Soul Eater too. Claymore actually ended a while ago too.
    (Still need to read PH too.)
