Yeah I know, the competition for accounting students is insane here. My GPA is alright, but I have zero relevant work experience. Not bad if I'm starting around $22,000 gross pay a year anyway. It'll be a bit more time before I could make double that. If I go for my CPA (certified public accountant) license, that salary will quadruple. Why can't ya have plenty of opportunities throughout your life to improve your education and skills? Being pressured at such a young age is terrible.
Oh I suppose I didn't tell you this, but I got a job as an office/legal assistant! I start Monday. They liked my accounting background, yet I have no experience in being a paralegal, cryyyy.
totally not in the mood for waking up at 7am everyday from now on!
Er maybe it isn't on my favorites because I don't like how it's split between Gintama, Gintama', and Overdrive. :P
Yus! Thinking about getting a new avatar since I love me some Kagura. She was so cute in the latest chapter. Our poor hero Gintoki has fallen so much though! o3o
I wish Sorachi would too. Or maybe the Q/As are not being translated... Some of the earlier omakes/extras were very rambly and I'm sure it would take a while to scanslate. :P
I'm pretty sure I watched all of the Devil May Cry anime, and Virgil/Nero ring a bell. :p
Anyway, enuff of dat. Glad to hear you joined a gintama forum! I'll join one next month and we can go cray cray. Also, I'm totally not in the mood for studies now haha. I'm kinda...tired of it. I just want to have fun now... ;;
The problem is...India's overpopulated. So there's plenty of competition. Plenty of software engineers. To be given a job with a good pay right away, you need to graduate with a 9+/10 gpa from a reputed institute. The more reputed the institute, the more insane your very first paycheck will be. There are those here who grabbed a $30,000 per month salary over here. That's a HUGE amount of money for someone who is freshly out of college. Then of course, *I* can't manage that since I failed haha.. I'll get into a above average college and hope for an above average salary...
"Hello, Sorachi-sensei. I’ve been wondering for some time, why did you become a manga writer? And try to come up with a cool reason, if you can."
No matter how much you enjoy a movie, a manga or an anime, eventually it ends. I get emotionally involved with fictional characters and worlds and suddenly find myself tossed out into the real world. It’s a lonely feeling. I don’t like it. I want to say, “Wait! Take me with you!” Maybe that sounds crazy, but that’s me. I especially feel this way when I watch things like Castle in the Sky. I never want them to end. I’d like to dive right through the TV into the world of the movie. Eventually I realized that the only way to avoid this feeling was to create worlds of my own. If somebody has to get left behind, I’d rather be the one doing the leaving. That’s why I became a manga writer. I don’t know if that’s the cool answer you wanted, but it’s the best I can do.

Answer: He is the number one alien buster in the universe, and the number one trouble maker in the universe.
Once he goes on a rage, the only things left are ruins, so he has to repay and can’t make a profit, then Kagura’s mother had a rare disease, and the price for medicines and doctors were very high, so they had to reduce their lifestyles.
