Ruben Can’t Read Japanese


In the last few years my passing interest in anime and manga has increased slightly and I'm starting to become more interested in different series's, more along the lines of the Sci-Fi oriented shows and books. R.U.B.E.N. with the U taken out and the B turned into a D is N.E.R.D.

Sailor Moon was the first one I saw and the only one of that type I ever really watched, (most guys saw DragonBallZ first, yes I know) so when I saw a special for one of the earlier manga volumes, I was interested.

Took me a few seconds to realise it was entirely in Japanese, which would be really useful to me!
