Meet Akiko!

We are so excited to introduce you to the newest member of Team Japanime, Akiko! Akiko joins us as our mascot - you never know where she's going to pop up!

We love having her here, despite the challenge of needing to work around her school hours. Although she turned 18 not long ago, she had to take a year off from school to help with her obaasan (grandmother) when she fell ill. Thankfully, her obaasan recovered fully and Akiko returned to her classes. Despite being a little older than her classmates, she became class representative this past year and when she focuses, she excels at her lessons. It's that focusing part that's a big difficult for her, especially recently!

She brings with her a LOVE of food - this girl can challenge your ramen eating skills! She has been learning to cook, but prefers to eat!

When Mark MacKinnon learned about Akiko, he knew something was special about her - he created a skill sheet just for her, for use in his Big Eyes, Small Mouth (BESM) system, and we want to share it with you! You can DOWNLOAD IT HERE!
