    Hello everyone.

    My real name is Erik, and I'm from Finland.

    I'm 17 years old boy. My hobbies are fantasy books, movies, games, airsoft, anime/manga and warhammer fantasy figures.

    I'm not surprised if someone mentions Conan O'Brien show here, because there has been some "Finland" jokes in it......if someone here even watch that show.

    So, Happy New Year to everyone here.

    Have any questions? Just ask, and I'll answer as best I can.

    Btw... konban wa means good evening, it's japanese. :jawa:

    Hey ho and welcome! Another Erik here. Well, my younger brother's (DeadBoromir) name is Eric, not Erik, but that doesn't matter, does it? :p

    I have a book "Japanese for busy people". I've been independently studying it, and I have also checked few websites that are dedicated to teaching Japanese to those who are interested.

    Good example: Click me
