    I scored 3-6-8. However a lot of my answers weren't no.. they were mainly "I don't know's". I haven't tried a lot of Japanese food, but I would like to.

    Don't forget that Pokemon, Digimon, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, Hamtaro, the Power Puff girls, and a few others fall into that category too! ^___^

    Umeboshi - This stuff is unbelievable i dont think i can even imagine how bad it tastes anymore it was so bad.
    Imagine the 10 worst tasting things you hate, eat them one after another, then spin around on your chair 500 times, then cut your wrists and your still not feeling as bad as you would be eating this

    LOL. Umeboshi took some getting used to, for me, but I like it! What was such a problem for you?

    Hehe... Umeboshi's better than those shrimp-flavored fries, at least. I had both when my penpal came to visit; she wasn't expecting me to like either one. I did get some Decoror Pocky out of her, too, though. (The chocolate-caramel cake flavor) ^_^
