すき家のまぐろなめろう丼 // Tuna Namerou Rice Bowl @ Sukiya
For a limited time, the Sukiya beef bowl chain is offering special tuna dishes! I had some hesitations about eating fish there, but their namero (tuna minced with miso and ginger) was actually decently tasty! Thing is, there’s so much of it that you kind of stop appreciating the flavor… but there’s not many places you could get this much tuna for ¥650 to begin with, so I appreciate the bargain.

anonymous asked:

What's the difference between canon divergent, alternate universe and mirror-verse? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm confused because they all seem like the same thing to me.

Not a dumb question, though I’m going to answer this from my own perspective in the Mass Effect fandom so other people might disagree with me or not like my examples.

Alternate Universe

Alternate Universe takes our characters and places them into a whole new world. It’s essentially original fiction with the fandom characters thrown in with new lives, jobs and worlds. The world should be unfamiliar, but the characters familiar.

For example - an AU fanfic about Shepard and the crew might be about them running a modern day sushi restaurant in London. Shepard is the boss, Kaidan and Garrus are chefs, Traynor and Tali are service girls and James is the customer who always eats too much and flirts with the counter girls. 

The story might be about them going into competition against the large sushi chain Cerberus who set up shop just up the street! Run by the Illusive Boss, their store is managed by Kai Leng - an unscrupulous man who will stop at nothing to crush the competition.


Mirror-verse

A mirror-verse fanfic will take place in a universe that mirrors the world of canon in terms of locations, characters and situations, but where some big shift in canon history has occurred.  The world and characters should be familiar, but slightly warped.

For example a mirror-verse fic could be a situation where Kaidan replaces Jack as Subject Zero (like in my fic!) and it’s him they pick up off the prison ship in ME2. Or it could be a world where the Alliance is evil, the crew of the Normandy are evil, and Cerberus are freedom fighters. Or it could be a world where the humans won the first contact war and the Alliance now controls the council along with the Asari etc etc. 


Canon Divergent

Canon Divergent stories will follow the fandom canon and then deviate at some point, which creates a completely new timeline where anything could happen - though canon events will still occur but with different outcomes. Yes, things will be familiar and a large part of the story is canon, but it is set in the same world with the same characters - but one choice or action is different to canon and this changes the story. The world and characters are familiar, but the story line becomes unfamiliar.

Eg. Commander Shepard never dies above Alchera and fights the Collectors with Alliance support. They know the reapers are coming and the Council believe her and prepare. They find the crucible plans (and other weapons) far earlier and are ready for the reapers when they arrive.


Hopefully this helps! Feel free to add to this or shoot me more questions!

Sushi King

          Sushi King is a chain of restaurants and it is providing many types of sushi and other Japanese cuisines. There is the latest Sushi King franchise at Bandar Dato Onn Aeon shopping mall in Malaysia. The restaurant provides the cuisine with fresh ingredients to the customer. The staffs are friendly when serving the customer however they are busy and tired. The staffs are very hardworking because they clean the table quickly for next customer after the previous customer has pay the bill.

         We have tasted the four of sushi which are CKT Maki, California Maki, Inari and Unagi Slice. We were eating the sushi with the wasabi source. We felt that all sushi are very delicious but we most prefer Unagi Slice.

       Tempura is also a famous Japanese cuisine. It is very crisp and fresh.

       Dumpling is not Japanese cuisine but we also can eat at Japanese restaurant. Japanese taste dumpling is made by cabbage and meat. When comparing with Chinese style dumpling, we prefer to eat Chinese style dumpling.

       Simon fish also is famous Japanese cuisine. It is very expensive for a student because it costs above RM 20. However, it is too expensive for us, we still order it because it is too delicious and fresh. We are very like it. 

Location: Aeon shopping mall (Bandar Dato Onn)

Sushinomics: How Bluefin Tuna Became a Million-Dollar Fish

Every year, on the first Saturday in January, Japan makes a grand statement to the global fishing community by putting an exorbitant price on the head of a single bluefin tuna. At the famous Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, the first bluefin auction of the year represents many things: growing consumer demand for bluefin sashimi, the exploitation of natural resources, the collapse of a species, shortsightedness in the face of impending doom to the entire ocean, a depraved publicity stunt

In 2013, Kiyoshi Kimura, the owner of a Japanese sushi restaurant chain, paid $1.76 million for the first bluefin at Tsukiji, which weighed 489 pounds. Kimura had paid $736,000—a world-record price at the time—for the first tuna of 2012. That fish weighed 593 pounds. 

It’s no surprise, then, that journalists were steeling themselves for what was sure to come on January 4, 2014: If the past decade’s trend in pricing continued, this year’s first tuna would surely fetch more than a million dollars. But the Tsukiji fish market bucked tradition this weekend and sold its first tuna to Kimura, yet again, for a mere $70,000. That’s still way more money than most bluefin go for in Japan. But compared to what everyone was expecting—an extravagant sum to start off the new year and remind us that these are the most prized fish in the sea—that’s one crazy cheap tuna.
