Definitely a beginner!
Its my dream to go visit my aniki there one day, and be able to speak to people and understand them as well.
My Japanese nickname is Ryuichi, but I usually go by Ryu. I am an anime/manga/videogame fan from way back. I figured that , since I've always loved Japan and all things Japanese, the next step should be to learn the language!
The people are SO nice, I feel like I'm welcome there to learn and interact. I'll definitely keep coming back, even if I do manage to make it back to college for Asian Studies like I'd love to be able to do!
