Japan→Me

Don’t worry, sometime even I don’t know what I’m drawing.🦄 

I kind of like this drink, some people might think it tastes like chemical, but I think it tastes like bubble gum. :) 

スタバのユニコーンフラペチーノがやばすぎるww🦄

where do you even start on the russo-japanese war? it was a war of iconography, a racist battleground for the rest of the great powers (roosevelt provided the commentary of “the plucky little japanese”), a test run for world war i, and an effective death knell for two empires (not even a decade after the close of the sino-japanese war, russia would come to find that revolution was a bigger threat than any humiliating peace the japanese could deliver). it wasnt just “the victory that startled the old world and warned the new,” it, along with many of the events of the late 19th century, was a preview of the sheer bloodshed that would beget the rest of the 20th century

im going to borrow a quote from a different scholar here and when people ask on the aftermath of this conflict, i wanna answer, “we are still seeing the effects”

*One day in the past America wanted Japan to be open to trade.*

America: Hello Japan.

Japan: Are you here to convince me of the benefits of capitalism, friend?

America: Ah, “Convince” implies that there will be a choice. *And America stepped to the side to reveal these rockin’ gun boats.*

Japan: Oh. 

*And then a wonderful friendship that experienced some, uh, minor rough patches was born.*
