Let's study English conversation in zombies!

A Japanese is poor at English. Of course we notice it and spend vast time and money on English learning. However, we do not improve at all.

Therefore Japanese developer KAWASEMI Co., Ltd. released interesting iPhone application "Zombie business English".

It is the business English conversation learning application that expressed the businessman who must go to the company even if he becomes the zombie.

"Let's say at the time of meal after become a zombie"

"If the friends of the zombie increase, let's say"

"When expressing an early zombie-ized phenomenon to someone, let's say"

These are the very strange situation, but it is impressive. This is an aim of this application. We can utilize these in everyday life if we replace a word with the situation.

However, if I become a zombie, I'll not go to a company :)

Comiket(Comic Market) is world's largest self-published book fair. However, it becomes the festival of every expression activity now. Or it is a festival of world's largest Otaku. All of expression activity exists here. Comics, novel, criticism, illustration, photo, handmade product, game, music, cos- play etc...

However, some stupids criticize this grand event.(The reasons are young people protection and a problem of the copyrights) However, the most of the criticism are often irrelevant.

Anonymous did Tweet in this way in Twitter. "We fight thoroughly to keep the freedom of expression of all people". They did garbage picking in the Ariake big site of the place of Comiket. The activity is very cool.
