Japan has really come together in an impressive way over the past week. Everyone is pitching in — even Hideo Kojima offered some words of encouragement on his blog. Long story short, Kojima asks that we continue to pray and think of those effected by the quake. He encourages Japan to continue to do their best and stay together for the sake of the future generation of the country.
At the bottom of the post you may notice a number of downloadable Twitter icons displaying hopeful kanji characters such as “hope”, “dream”, “courage”, etc. There is also an image of Ken from Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner drawn by Nobuyoshi Nishimura:
“Everyone, let’s do out best together!”
Finally, he leaves us with a quote from Solid Snake at the end of Metal Gear Solid:
“Spring brings new life to everything. It’s a time for hope.”
Let’s hope Snake is right.
