62nd Anniversary Of Japan’s WWII Surrender 

Smack dab in the middle of a weekend dominated (like few will be this year) by a vicarious celebration of entertainment of Japan’s 2 top anime series dealing with war and robots is an interesting (and some would pose, ironic) historical footnote of the former real world empire’s emasculation. September 2nd marks the 62nd anniversary of Japan’s surrender to the allies in World War 2. The instrument of surrender was signed on the battleship Missouri warship in Tokyo Bay on Sunday, September 2nd, 1945.

Ray’s take: USA! USA! USA! (Bursts into “spontaneous” singing) OH Say can’t you see? We’ll come and kick your ass! How can we do that? We’ll send some troops and shoot…

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
