Happy birthday, Mr. Gundam

5 Nov

Do you know 富野由悠季 (Yoshiyuki Tomino)?

If you’re a big fan of the Japanese anime series “Gundam” you might know who he is…because he’s the creator of the Gundam series.

Today (2011 November 5) is Mr. Tomino’s 70th birthday. He was born on 1941 November 5 in 神奈川県 (Kanagawa Prefecture), just south of Tokyo.

I wrote a post with photos I took of the “lifesize” Gundam robot when it was in Tokyo (click here to read it).
Actually, I’ve written a number of Gundam-related posts.

Have you ever watched Gundam? Are you a “fan”?

    I’m afraid the only Japanese movies we watch right now are Goh and Jin 2.

      Well, Gundam is a Japanese anime (cartoon), not actually a movie.

      But, anyways, are many Japanese movies shown in Hawaii?

      You can type Japanese well. It’s written perfectly.
      Can you write Japanese (with a pen, by hand), too?
