Being named for an anime character could save you money in Japan
Dec 17, 2012

So you've got the same name as a character from a popular Japanese media franchise. It's not your fault. Maybe your parents did it on purpose, maybe it was just coincidence. Either way, you might end up taking some crap for it, but there is a silver lining. If you've got the right anime-based name, you can get discounts at certain Japanese bars. No, really.
