Fahaka Pufferfish (Tetraodon lineatus)

Also known as the Nile Puffer, Lineatus Puffer, or the Globe Fish, the fahaka pufferfish is a species of tropical freshwater pufferfish (Tetraodontidae) which occurs in the Nile River and other river basins in Africa. Like other pufferfish, when disturbed T. lineatus boasts the ability to inflate when threatened and carries the toxin Tetrodoxin. Fahaka pufferfish are primarily molluscivorous and will forage in the benthic zone for freshwater mussels and snails.

On 9/6/16 I began a Twitter campaign w/ the hashtag #GetMaryAnEmmy. My goal? Get Mary her FRAKKIN EMMY! I’m making all new Gifs for each post.

I encourage those who want to join me - like, retweet, quote retweet (w/ the same hashtag if you want to expand on what I said), or respond to my posts. 

If you don’t then please create your own hashtag in the hopes that one of us will catch the eye of TPTB/Mary and get them on board with it. Good luck :)


“I listened to the sample of ‘Soredemo Yasashii Koi wo Suru’. I’ve been feeling both Moe and embarrassment, like falling on my desk head down, or diving into the bed screaming Hauu!!… It’s scheduled to be released on 31 Oct.”

Soredemo Yasashii Koi wo Suru drama CD  will be released this month! and here’s the audio commercial on youtube!

The commercial message starts by Deguchi introducing himself, then Onoda. They take turns to read the summarized storyline, while chatting and joking like old times, like Deguchi calling Onoda “Megane-kun”(guy with glasses) or forcing him to buy him expensive Fugu(globe fish) dinner.  They introduce the other casts, but when Onoda introduces Shima, Deguchi was cute getting a bit jealous like the latest story in the Tankobon.

Even from the short audio commercial, I could catch Deguchi’s emotion for Onoda, though keeping a pose of a suave joker. Onoda is also being “natural” but sincere also can be heard through their voices. I can definitely look forward to listening to the CD!
