Name:chochajin















日本の生活 ★ Life in Japan!


Hey there!~
I´m a German fangirl, 30-something years old young. After I graduated from university I decided to go to Japan. I've been living there for almost 7 years (2008-2014). Currently I'm taking a "Japan break". Meanwhile I've travelled to all 47 Japanese prefectures and have experienced a lot in Japan.
Some people keep asking me about my username. It doesn´t really have a meaning ... or so I thought. I just wanted a unique username. I liked the sound of the Japanese word "choujin" (超人 / super-human) [<- discovered in Urotsukidôji] and altered it a bit. Later I found out that it actually DOES have a meaning if you don´t write it as 超ちゃ人、but as 超茶人. The latter means s.th. like super master of the tea ceremony XD ... well, it´s kind of fitting cuz I LOVE tea, especially Japanese green tea.



Okay that´s tough. I have various fandoms. I discovered Japanese anime/manga almost 20 years ago. My first anime ever was Sailor Moon (^^;). Right now I not only (still) love anime / manga /doujinshi / etc., but also jdramas and Japanese movies as well as Japanese music (Johnnys, jpop). For more information you can check out my watched list, my manga list or what I´m currently watching/reading/listening to! I've also made a special list with all the jdramas and jmovies I've watched so far (with recs, though not updated anymore).
Furthermore I'm in love with Japanese food (esp. bentos) and Japanese green tea.



Okay, so what´s my lj about? I used to write about my life in Japan. Recently I write about a lot of random things. I also got back into anime and manga. Nevertheless you'll still find tons of stuff here (from my time before Japan) such as graphics (icons, bases, screencaptures, moodthemes etc.), photos (japan, bento, jfood) and random fandom entries ^__^ Because there are so many entries by now I´ve created a JOURNAL INDEX . You can also check out the TAGLIST!~
Credits and Ressources are listed here. (^-^)V
