    Oh great…からはからアキラがとてもと思います. The IOC will have to check for telepathic and telekinesis cheats. Should make for an interesting Olympics though.

        Apparently poetry was once an event. So I guess anything is possible.

        I just Googled it and you’re right! Various art competitions were events in the 1948 London Olympics…according to this Wikipedia article.

      Well, it depends on which anime you watch.

      For instance, I’d like to have my own Doraemon, personally!
