    Rob:

    Takoyaki is a pretty good 'advanced' snack. Obviously in Japan you'd get them grilled, but you can buy the frozen varieties, and microwave them or grill them. I'm not sure what the sauce is, but I usually eat mine without. They also go well in improvised noodle soup (a recipe of mine that gets fairly close to real ramen without actually being real ramen [​IMG]). Another one is edamame, which are soybeans, and you can also get these frozen and microwave them, IIRC.

    I'm going to make another run to Uwajimaya/Kinokuniya on Saturday. I'm running out of Ramune and Pocky, so I've got to fill up [​IMG].

    John.

    Only Japanese snack thing I've had is Pocky. Never had ramen or anything else like that... [​IMG]

    still silently lurking....pay no attention to me.

    i did put milennium actress and last exile into my netflix queue (along with some other anime titles).

    last exile looks promising...i may want to collect that series. which, along with lain, cowboy bebop, and boogiepop phantom...would bring my whopping series collection to four titles. [​IMG]

    Dang it, another day, another anime thread.... [​IMG]

    Well, Rob I posted in the other one, then realized it was SINKING. So after swimming to this one, I will repeat what I said. (with little * bullets. I rule~ )

    * NONG SHIM is brand name, like KRAFT or ORE-IDA. The engrish names for these are pretty generic, so just try them. Not all of them are spicy, but many are. Generally, I find NONG SHIM to be the better tasting brand for Ramen. You can also get the NON-cup noodle version and add stuff to the pot while its cooking. Left over meat, eggs, veggies, and of course, Kim Chee - the pickled cabbage dish...

    Eric: Congrats on your find. Like Rob, I didn't need to worry since I preordered, but you have quite a find in your hands. Hope you have all your "booklets" too. [​IMG]

    Ted:
    Holy Cow~!!! It's SuperTED! the Master of Testy Thread (well, Steve Christou should get that, along with Jack Briggs and Parker Clack but since you are the only one who posts on this thread (besides the everpresent tony-B) I figured you should ge the thumbs up) [​IMG]

    Comcast added Starz On-Demand here and there's anime on it. Hellsing and some other stuff.

    I don't have Starz yet, but I might pick it up once their HD channel starts.

    Ted:

    Wow, long time, no see [​IMG].

    Woo:

    Nong Shim is definitely one of the better 'ramen' companies. I think I'll have to pick up some more when I go tomorrow. BTW, CD Japan shipped my order today (JST). More Ayumi Hamasaki! More Do As Infinity! More R2 DVDs! Woo Hoo! [​IMG]

    lol, yep, The (ask Zen Butler what that means...or see the testy thread) is still lurking. you guys may not know it, but i've been lurking for the past few iterations of AAD. i just can't keep up with you guys, but i like to hear what you have to say. it helps keep me current and helps me to decide what anime is worth checking out.

    so, chatter on...and know what evil lurks around the corner.

    Yes.

    I am Korean
    Therefore, I rule~ [​IMG]

    (damn, that is addicting- gotta stop [​IMG] )

    By the way, as my location suggests, I live in NYC ( currently in Manhattan) Where are you located??

    * By the way thanks for the new idea for my sig.... :wink:


    Yeah - the booklets are collector's item. After the show aired On Cartoon Network's Adult Swim (dubbed) twice, the demand just shot up and BAM! it was decided that booklets would be made available via the 'Net by Synchpoint.

    And those who bought it when it first came out kick ass, that's why we get collectible booklets *high five*
