Using my LJ as a sales blog is all new to me so please bear with me.

I decided to sell some of my (anime) stuff after seeing how much of a big mess my desk and bookshelves are right now. Please note that I only sell original merchandise from Japan. If you're unsure of the item you're buying from me, please don't hesitate to contact me and I would gladly take different pictures of the item for you. All prices are in USD and shipping and PayPal fees are still NOT included.

When Buying:
- Please indicate the item and your country in the comment box.
- Please respond within 2-3 days.
- I can only hold an item up to a week and can put up an "ON HOLD" sign beside the item's nam. After a week has passed, please let me know if you're still interested in the item. If you haven't responded after a week, I'll put the item up on sale once again.

- For international buyers, payment is made through PayPal "Purchase (Goods)" (extra fees are required to be paid by the buyer).
- For local buyers in the Philippines, paying through PayPal (same fees apply with int'l buyers) and bank account are two convenient options.
- I can also do meet ups at Ortigas (SM Megamall or Shangri-la Plaza), Makati (Greenbelt, Glorietta or Little Tokyo) or at UST.

- For local buyers (Philippines), a fixed price of P140 for shipping via LBC (usually takes up to 1-2 days).
- For international buyers, I use regular air mail. This usually takes around 2 weeks or so to arrive (according to the post office tenants). If you want a tracking number, there will be an additional fee of $2.

Please note that I will not be responsible for any damaged, stolen or lost items during delivery. No returns/refuns. All sales are final.

You can reach me through here by leaving a comment below or through my Tumblr (hossico.tumblr.com) or by simply e-mailing me at hossiouji@gmail.com.

Local buyers may also reach me through my cellphone number which I can give you if you choose to contact me through there.

Thank you very much! :)

I was lurking around YouTube (as I normally do) and stumbled upon this really interesting drama.

I'm currently studying formal Japanese lessons at a local Japanese school here in my country; I never had the chance to study in a formal school when I was a kid so I had to settle with self-studying. Now that I'm in my last (hopefully!) 2 years of college, my family finally allowed me to enter a formal school.

Back to the drama, proper grammar usage of languages are always an issue. While it is, of course, practical to use proper usage of grammar, in most languages this is not really taken seriously. Let's take the English language for example. When you're in the US or in any country that has English as it's mother tongue or primary language, proper grammar isn't really given that much attention as long as you make sense. Although of course in professional setting it is recommended that you use English properly.

So what am I trying to talk about? Well, if you're learning Japanese, you should keep in mind that even if you're learning in a formal Japanese school doesn't mean you have to follow EVERYTHING. This is what I noticed about the drama---the students were thought "Keigo" (which is formal Japanese) so they couldn't understand the "normal" speaking of Japanese natives.

I'm not fluent in Japanese and I admit I might be wrong with what I'm trying to say but I'm just saying what I have observed. I've been into the Japanese culture for the longest time so I may know enough knowledge already as to what is right and wrong when it comes to anything Japanese. Although again, I'm not saying I'm a professional, I'm just saying what I have knowledge of.

So anyway back to the topic, the drama is helpful for those who want to have more understanding of the Japanese vocabulary and usage. If you're feeling you need a bit of challenge watch that video that I linked above. It's only got Chinese and Japanese subtitles so for you who wants to test your Japanese knowledge (except for those who can read Chinese!!) try to watch that video above.

I also really want to talk about Japanese language schools and the benefits of it for those of you who want to study and live in Japan! I might do one just after this.

Anyways, do try to watch that drama if time allows! ;w;
