Conan in Japan!

Hail fellow barbarians and savages! It's really great to see the CROM! blog back to it's former self (and then some) with the return of Cromsblood and the addition of our newest blogging brother, Atom Kid. And to hold up my end of things a bit, i wanted to take a quick moment to tell you all about an email I received from a Conan fan all the way from the land of the rising sun.

A blogger called "Banjin" (蛮人), which means "barbarian" in Japanese, set me a link to his website, which is all devoted our favorite sword-swinger Conan!

You can visit Banjin's site, "Conan the Oblivioner" (???) by clicking HERE. It appears that Banjin has combined two of his favorite things: Conan and the popular sandbox style video game (which I have sunken many hours into myself), Oblivion.

And good luck navigating the site because it's all in Japanese. Maybe Cromsblood can help us out with some sort of translator?

Anyway, check it out and, as always, make sure to die not in hunger... but in combat!

Went through all 30+ blog posts yesterday, very Crom!-like…cool!

Only problem is that when you google translate, i.e.

you have to have the Japanese version open at the same time (i.e. run them side by side), because the pictures don’t show up in the translated version…and the pictures help because the translation isn’t great…

Oh, and I see that you got a mention from Conan himself for this post Reis. Go to the japanese version of Banjin's page and scroll down! Ha!

Thank you for introducing the translation page.

I thought about the project introductory commemoration by your great blog.

I introduce great artist "Honichiro Takebe" to overseas brothers in English.

Please come to see my blog when it is free.

Moreover, let's meet.

Good-Bye :D
