A very interesting interview.

It also gives an insight to Nicodou's community, which at least to me is difficult to understand. I learned quite a bit and Nishimura seems an interesting fellow.

Heh, I visit some Japanese news sites English forums and know these terms well. What they say and what they really mean, without sarcasm. It's like lying but with understanding. Laughing
