Happy birthday, Ishida-san!

That's right! Today is Akira Ishida's birthday! Actually, in Japan, it was yesterday, but that's the beauty of being in the western United States. It's still got three hours where we are.

For those of you who don't know who Akira Ishida is,
Athrun Zala (Gundam Seed (Destiny))
Cho Hakkai (Saiyuki (Reload (Gunlock)))
Satoshi Hiwatari (DN Angel (anime))
Xellos (Slayers Next (and Try))
Fisheye (SailorMoon SuperS)
Renhou (Fushigi Yuugi OVA 2)
Gokudo (Gokudo)
Inumaru (Ueki no Housoku)
Howard (Uninhabited Planet Survive)
Gaara (Naruto)
Chrno (Chrno Crusade)
Kaworu Nagisa (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Eyes Rutherford (Spiral)
Seiya (Nurse Angel Ririka)
Herb (Nurse Angel Ririka)
Sasuke (Samurai Deeper Kyo)

We were thinking about it last night, when Athena said it would be Ishida-san's birthday and I said we would have to do something in honor of it. But then Athena pointed out that, from the stuff we've heard him say on internet radio and Gundam Seed commentaries, he would probably appreciate the sentiment but wonder why on earth we would feel the need to go out of our way to celebrate the birthday of a man we've never met. So we spent the day working instead.

And now we're off to play Lunar2, which also has nothing to do with Akira Ishida, unless you count the fact that he played Alex in the first Lunar, and we're currently going around gathering all of Alex's stuff. But first, I'm thankful for November 2nd, being able to make good progress in translating, video game music and remixes thereof, Akira Ishida being forced to sing, and cows.
