Yutaka Nakamura's tweets
Awhile back, I received a random interrogation by a police officer in the middle of the night near work.
Officer: "Sorry to bother you in the middle of the night, do you live around here?"
Me: "My workplace is nearby."
Officer: "What kind of work?"
Me: "An anime company."
Officer, in an interested tone: "What anime do you work on?"
Me: "Fullmetal Alchemist and stuff."
Officer salutes me, saying "(◎_◎)！Keep up the great work!(๑•̀ㅁ•́๑)✧"
And then, since then, Nakamura lived happily ever after and was never interrogated again.
