I'm studying Japanese (I've been studying it for 4 years at the university,
this is my last year of study) and I can read (and write, of course)
hiragana, katakana and a certain number of kanji (I know about 1000 of them
but I can write a little more than the half of them). I speak it quite
fluently and I was offered a job as translator of manga, but, as my computer
was "out of order", I received that job offer sent by e-mail one month after
the editor had sent it. When I answered it was too late. A bad happening.

"Daremo hitorideha ikirarenai" -- Kidou Senshi Gandamu (MS Gundam)
Translation: "Nobody can live alone"
