    If you could bring back one thing from Japan????

    So a good friend of mine had the good fortune of landing a paid internship in Japan this summer and is currently TOTALLY rubbing it in my face (she also pointed out that if I had picked the same major as her I probably would have gotten that internship instead), but being the good friend that she is has agreed to bring back one thing from Japan while she is there, I told her I would have to think about it and decided to ask the MangaHelpers community for "help".

    I already have the default "COPY OF SHONEN JUMP" but would like to hear what anyone else might suggest that represents Japanese culture and can legally be brought back to US and Canada.

    Even if they aren't, I'm sure Masaki Sumitani's papers are, and then once he makes it over there, presto chango, it's Hard Gay FOOOOOOOOOOO~!!!!!!!

    Depends on where he goes in the US, I'm pretty sure it's just another regular day in San Francisco

    but seriously, other than Hard Gay, what would you bring back (reasonable?)

    Hmmm.... i think having a katana in your suitcase (even if you have a lisence of caring it) will be troublesome in an airport huh? just imagine the guards's faces while they pass your suitcase from the scan
    <- always wanted a japanese sword "MADE IN JAPAN" not the weak ones sold in the market....
    actually the choices are quite unlimited on anything the resembles Japan the most :S everyone has his own opinion
    *When you laugh, it's as though the world becomes, just a little, a nicer place.
    *Being alone is scary. Solitude is scary.
    *I have rushed here, when i was summoned. Because you were crying. You were sobbing as if you were screaming.
    *The nights that morning will never come doesn't exist.
    *More than anyone could ever admire you, this is the definite truth, I like you...
    *Because you are like the sky, causing me pain in love... because I love you.
    *Did you hear? Did i reach you?

    My Sephiroth cosplay would look perfect with a REAL Japanese Katana ... just kidding, my Jin cosplay (Samurai Champloo).

    All kidding aside I know that everyone has his/her own opinion on what resembles Japan the most, which is why I posed the question in this forum to help me narrow down my choices. So far I have a shonen jump, gundam model, and figure out a way to smuggle both Hard Gay and a REAL LIVE KATANA... Well, I guess Hard Gay could find somewhere to hide the Katana (It's amazing what he can pull out from seemingly nowhere) .

    PS: Can just picture the customs official's look once scanning the suitcase, LOL

    PPS: I know I omitted the copic markers, but I'm not that good at art and they would be of no use to me...of course I could always get them and send them to black_burn

    Hmm, well I don't really like figures much, and I can't read Japanese letters so buying manga would go to waste... So, umm, Cheese-kun, I guess...
