Someone generally from North America sometimes Europe. Can be white, black, Hispanic, or even Asian.*Counting all Asian countries other then Japan believe me I know and seen them*
Often has a unhealthy obsession with all things Japanese even though they know nothing about Japan it’s self. Most want to live in Japan even though it cost more money to live there then they want to believe. Most love anime but in a unhealthy way and or something Japanese be it a car company or electronic company. *See Sony, Honda, ect* Many dine on Japanese food such as ramen even though it was invented in continental Asia. Most over pay for “pocky” a cheep bread stick like candy that you can buy state side under different names and makes for less and better taste.
Most want to be Japanese or marry or just have sex with a Japanese person just because they are Japanese.
I would rant more but I don’t care.
Wapanese or Japaniphilles are losers. Just like fangirls who look at or write yaoi stuff all day.
Started in Japan. Meaning to have sex, often using a pelvic thrust when doing so.
Caused when a American English teacher told some Japanese kids on a soccer field the English words for waist and shake. So being the kids they are they put it together to come up with a new word for sex that no one really understands outside of the kids...except one guy.
Guy-*points at girl* I'd Waist-shake that.
New Mcdonalds ad..
baba ba ba baa I'd waist-shake that.
Statues of this deity are already prominent in Japan by the 7th century. By the 9th century, Miroku Bosatsu becomes extremely popular among believers of the Shingon Sect, a form of Esoteric Buddhism. Founded by Kobo Daishi (774 to 835 AD), the Shingon sect believes that, far in the future, the Miroku Bosatsu will become a Nyorai (Buddha), and then appear on earth to save those unable to achieve enlightenment. Even today, Shingon followers are awaiting Miroku's return, scheduled to occur about 5.6 billion years from now.
Miroku Bosatsu - Hakuhou Period, Treasure of Kouryu-jiAccording to Buddhist lore, the Days of Dharma (Buddhist Law) are divided into three periods:
1. First phase lasts 500 years; called the Turning of the Wheel of the Law (itself a metaphor for teaching the way to enlightenment), it refers to the spread and acceptance of Buddhist philosophy
2. Second phase lasts 1,000 years; during this period the practice of the Law begins to deteriorate
3. Last phase lasts 3,000 years; during this period, no one practises the Law
In the very last period, Buddhism will weaken and fade, but a new Buddha will then appear to once again "turn the wheel of the law." This Buddha is Maitreya (Miroku). Technically speaking, Miroku is a Bosatsu who resides in the Tusita heaven -- the place where Bosatsu dwell before incarnation -- but Miroku is still considered a Buddha in light of his impending arrival. This explains why Miroku can be represented as either a Bosatsu or Nyorai (Buddha). Nonetheless, I am unsure why the modern-day Shingon Sect believes Miroku Nyorai will appear 5.6 billion years in the future. According to the timeframe set forth in the Days of the Dharma, isn't that supposed to be around 4000 AD?
In Japan, the majority of Miroku artwork depicts the Miroku Bosatsu -- not sure if this holds true outside Japan. Also, in Japan, the Miroku Bosatsu is mostly shown seated, with finger touching cheek, as if in deep meditation or musing, and the left ankle of the foot is resting atop the right knee. Both poses are seldom found for the other Nyorai and Bosatsu.
To help you differentiate between the Nyorai and Bosatsu versions of Miroku, just remember that Bosatsu statues are typically ornate, wearing crowns and jewelry and princely clothes. In contrast, statues of the Nyorai are typically unadorned and dressed in the simple robe of a monk. This guideline doesn't always work, of course, but in often yields a correct assessment of the deity.
Miroku is not a anime person, although he is in Inuyasha he is cooler as a buddhism deity.
Makers of the Ever and more popular then Final Fantasy "In japan" Dragon Warroir/Quest games. When these games come state side most of the time they are not looked at because of the old school look and the fact people want 30 hour RPG's like Final Fantasy or just want Final Fantasy because it is just that. Enix has had a long history in making quality RPG's.
Enix merged with Square a few years back. Kind of a bad thing being Square will try to drag them into the dirt somehow and make their Final Fantasys look great.
Who knows what the future holds for Enix really...all I hope for is Dragon Warrior to come state side.
If you want a true 100 hour RPG that dose not let up nor have half hour FMV's look into Dragon Warrior.
