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.

So he's saying the police officer was a Fullmetal Alchemist fan?
He should've said Evangelion instead.
This guy's famous for Cowboy Bebop and FMA's battle scenes.

Funny story, I wonder if the police officer approached him because he was acting weird?

If I was the police officer, I would have done the same!
