Gintama's 10th Anniversary is on December 8th, 2013!

Yorozuya Soul is planning to send Sorachi a package of congratulatory messages and drawings from fans around the world. If you want to send something to him, now's your chance to be a part of something potentially big.

Check out the details here:

There's a Name field which can be anything you want, but if you're from the forums let us know who you are in the "Instructions/Comments" field! ;)

One question though, does he understand English?

It is useless of time.



(The page says that Japanese is preferred, otherwise use simple English which could be translated into Japanese if it's short enough.)
Very sorry about that.. I really should read the instructions at the campaign page beforehand

There may be concerned about message length for English responses, but seriously don't worry about it. We talked about it in chat just now, and something to the length of Question Corners is completely fine.

Now, I should think of what to draw... Hmmm... :)

Good to know this then!  :happy:

In case you guys read the quote below at http://yorozuyasoul.com/campaigns/gintama_10th_anniversary
Quote
Messages are preferable in Japanese. If you know even just a bit of Japanese, please send your messages in Japanese without fear.
Most authors are extremely moved by the effort you put into writing in a language you're not comfortable with. If it's absolutely not possible, please use simple English instead (basically no slang, but you can refer to Question Corner #22 and #23 for examples of international messages). It may be translated to Japanese for you.

Here are the quick links to the Question Corners

I only know how to write my own name in Japanese, otherwise it's just random words  :-[  so I'll sign the drawing/drawings (can I send more than one?) I'll make, but in the name field of the submit form I'll write my first name followed by my YS username if that's ok.
