Read that? Buy an iPhone direct at Apple store in HK, and you can simply put in any SIM card of the provider of your choice, like NORMAL phones. Emphasize the word any. I guess they have to do that so people will actually want to buy it. Unlocked phones are the norm in Asia, unlike the backward USA. So, Apple, when are you going to do that here?
Found this on youtube, a Korean boyband singing the song “Feel Your Breeze,” originally sung in Japanese by V6.
Youtube is a great place to find old anime clips. These ones are some of them that I watched when I was a kid. It’s funny when my friends and I here were discussing what we’re watching on TV when we were kids. Many of them mentioned Mr. Rogers. As for me, I was like “who is Mr. Rogers? I was watching Goggle V and Kamen Rider Black.” LOL.
Gyavan (1982): (my first tokusatsu show. Gyavan is still the coolest! We were always amazed how awesome his dragon robot was)
Goggle V (1982): (my first Super Sentai show. Yup, everybody around my age from my country know what Goggle V is, everybody)
God-Sigma (1980): (man, I really loved this anime’s songs when I was a kid)
Thunderbid 2086/Technovoyager (1982): (Probably my first exposure to dubbed anime without realizing it. I knew it was Japanese in origin, but didn’t realize the dub. I never even watch the original Japanese one. The OP of the dubbed seems cooler, thankfully they still use the Japanese music minus the vocals)
And of course, my first exposure to Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider Black (1987). I didn’t even know that it was Kamen Rider. LOL.
Some of my friends always ask why I keep watching those “power rangers” shows, referring to Japanese Super Sentai (no, I swear I won’t watch any more crappy Power Rangers crap). Well, looking at the shows above, I can see why I still like tokusatsu shows. Plus, now I’m aware that tokusatsu shows are entertaining all ages, if you know what I mean. 🙂
