You can call me The Mask. In some sites, I'm also known as Detective Mask. I was born on April 12, 1990, making me 25 years old as of this time. I've been a theOtaku member for over 10 years already.

I'm a wandering teacher striving to enhance my skills. I'm also a longtime anime fan, and my all-time favorite anime/manga franchises include Detective Conan (Case Closed), MAJOR, Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X), Silver Spoon, and Death Note.

Some other notes: I'm a loyal Detective Conan fan for over a decade already. I'm also a pro-wrestling otaku, mainly with WWE. I love learning about history and I have a soft spot for social psychology.

It's great to have you in my Cafe. Feel free to browse around. Take care and may you have a nice day!

Top Ten Signs Your Friend Watches Too Much Anime

READER DISCRETION: This bit may contain themes and language not suitable for very young children.

On May 20, 2015, the "King of Late Night" David Letterman will officially retire after more than 3 decades on the air. As we celebrate his contributions to late night and to the entire comedy world, I decided to bring back this neat segment that I borrowed from his show a long time ago.

Back in 2006, I've become such a fan of the Late Show with David Letterman that I made my own series of Top Ten lists, just like what he'd normally deliver on his show. Since I was more associated with the anime community theOtaku, my lists tend to be related to anime. I had Top Ten Answers Anime Characters Would Give to the Question "Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?". Back when Gundam Seed Destiny was quite hot, I also had Top Ten Dumb Guy Thoughts About Gundam Seed Destiny. But the list that started it all was Top Ten Signs that an Otaku is Going Insane.

Now that was 2006. Since then, a lot of things have changed. If I delivered that list now, I'd sound like the ghost of anime past. And that ain't cool with big daddy cool. (Okay, maybe that made me sound like the ghost of pro-wrestling past.)

Anyway, I decided to bring out a new list to pay tribute to David Letterman on his retirement. It's more of an updated list, though, since this is based on one of my old lists. And even though I dedicate this to Dave, I'm pretty sure he won't get a lot of the in-jokes here.

Tonight's category: Top Ten Signs Your Friend Watches Too Much Anime


When a girl uppercuts him, he suddenly jumps way above the ground.

Ask him who Masashi Kishimoto is and he'll give you a very detailed answer. Ask him who Barack Obama is and his mind goes blank.

His weird fashion sense involves a white shirt, lots of cake, and the 12th letter of the English alphabet.

He always tries to use a transmutation circle to turn a piece of paper into his homework.

When he ran an errand to buy some bleach, he came back with a book about an orange-haired teen.

He came out as a ripped, shirtless pink-haired guy for the school's fairy tale prom.

While his Australian teacher was talking about the Yowie monster, he raised his hands and screams "That's wasn't me! I like girls!"

He freaked out when his spelling test had the words hen, tie, lowly, cone, show, tack-on.

You tried to give him one piece of advice, and he screamed, "It's one piece of Oda, idiot!"

In an NFL game, he's wondering why the Tennessee Titans doesn't just bite their thumbs and eat their opponents alive.

And that's it for tonight's Top Ten list. Thank you for reading. And thank you, David Letterman, for the laughs and the memories that you have given to everyone, including me. Take care, Dave.

Good night everybody! #ThanksDave

Fan Comic Featured

So my fan comic for Manga Pro-Wrestling: Eren vs. Jean 2 is now featured in the main page of theOtaku.

This is actually a pleasant surprise. I posted that comic a couple of months ago, so it's nice to see it get featured despite the fact that it's not exactly new.

It's also great to see that it got featured in the first place. It made me happy to know that the moderators thought my works were worth featuring. It inspires me to further improve my art skills and to work harder in the next installments of the MPW series.

Shameless Comic Plug

I've recently submitted my latest comic, which I've entitled "Eren vs. Jean (Manga Pro-Wrestling). The comic is essentially a pro-wrestling match between Attack on Titan characters Eren Yeager (Eren Jaeger) and Jean Kirstein (Jean Kirschtein).

You may notice that the comic contains the colored versions of the wrestling drawings that I've been working on in the past month, plus some extra pieces. By submitting it as a comic, I'm actually putting the drawings altogether so that it could tell the story within the pro-wrestling match. After all, a pro-wrestling match is supposed to have a story to tell, so that the audience would be able to be hooked by it.

Anyway, here's the link to my comic:

I hope you enjoy it. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Should I Attack the Titan?

Admittedly, I've only begun to actually look into Attack on Titan just recently. I've heard so much about it over the past year, but I felt that its plot is too apocalyptic and depressing for me to invest my time and emotions in. But since its popularity is still quite high at this point, plus the constant feedback about how epic the anime could be, I'm starting to reconsider this anime series. (And since we are on the topic of epical qualities, I gotta say that the opening video of the anime is freaking epic!)

But I'm not guaranteeing anything here. I'm no fan of "end-of-the-world" stories, so it remains to be seen if I would actually push through with starting this series.
