evangelion: ecstasy of ayanami

So I'll be writing love letters for hire now. In Japanese. For each page it will be 5$. These will be REAL letters and not emails. I will even write fan letters in Japanese to celebrities if you give me their fanclub addresses.

Why am I doing this? I'm trying to raise money to help me survive in Japan when I go off to study abroad starting this July. I'm a single-parented child already up to her ass in college loans, and as we all know Tokyo is THE most expensive city on earth. I will be having a job there, of course, but it's really expensive before hand with all of the preperation and what not. I need to be able to balance having a job and school, and I honestly don't want to put anymore than I have on my family. Also this job sounded interesting, and I wanted to try it.

My qualifications? I am currently a third year Japanese 5 year BA/MA program major at UC Santa Barbara. I know approximately 600-800 kanji. I was on the Dean's List for all of the 2003-2004 school year. My GPA ranges around the 3.8-3.9 mark, depending on how I do each quarter. My cumulative language GPA is 3.95.

Sample letter:

Turnaround time: it really depends on how many orders I get and how much time I have. I'm a student first and foremost, but I will make time to do these.

Interested? Leave a message with:
-What you want on your letter
-Who it's going to (for the address, please email me at usagiko at gmail.com)

Record of Lodoss War Manga $2, ends tomorrow - Please help me get rid of this thing.

Also, my Kumagoro auction was ended because its a copyright violation, apparently. No more ebaying of Gravitation cosplay, I guess. If you'd like this handsome plush Kumagoro, he's just $25 shipping anywhere in the US included. That bumps up to $30 for international orders. I'm willing to do Paypal or money order, provided the money order is in USD. I've had trouble lately with Canadian money orders being virtually uncashable in the US.

For those lucky people living near a place where they can buy imported books and magazines, I have a question - would anyone be willing to buy a copy of Newtype March 2005 and send it to me? If so, could you quote a price to me? I live in Austin, Texas. And I'd like to spend $15 or less, but if that's unreasonable, just let me know. ^^

Or - if anyone could just suggest a place to buy it online, that'd work too!

Mini Me!

Hiya^^ I am currently doing commissions to pay for my adventure to Otakon 2005! I generally work pretty cheap and do primarily anime style. I am willing to do fanart, original characters, or real people. But like I said, I mostly do anime/manga style. I am %100 willing to send all hard copies of work to buyer unless it is CGed.

3" Singles Requests

Hey everyone!!

There's a Japanese book store near me that sells JPop (and I think JRock) 3" Singles (mini disc singles).

Collapse )

This store is a small family owned business, and its mainly a book store. There's maybe 100 or so 3" singles there, and its anyone's guess as to what's there. I am offering a chance for you to make requests for me to find certain singles. You can request by anything by an artist or a specific single. If the artist usually writes their name in Japanese (kanji and or kana), PLEASE include a picture file of how their name is written, since I cannot read kanji (a picture file, my computer doesn't support Japanese text).

I will charge $5 USD for people in the US and $6 USD for those in Canada, for each single. These prices include shipping. If you buy a multiple ammount, I will try to take some dollars off the final price. I can only accept well-concealed cash at this time, gomen.
