Darren-Kun’s Magical GungHo Adventure!

 

Sometimes, good things just sort of land in your lap.

You might be walking down the street and see a dollar just laying in your path. Maybe a barista asks if you’d like a drink for free that she made and nobody wanted. Other times, it might be something more substantial, like visiting a foreign land to attend a game convention and getting to interview some of the most important and well-recognized names in the Japanese games industry.

In my case, that last one is exactly what happened to me.
