Filipino-Japanese Relations

Gundam and ray gun are part of my vocabulary. Son Goku and I were backyard friends as I took him and Barbie on adventures through Planet Namek. I can look to history and align myself accordingly. Japanese soldiers once bombed and occupied Manila, and many a Japanese ghost still now roam in the city’s haunted houses. Years after they got routed, they switched strategies to redeem themselves and sent the tamagochi to forge diplomatic ties in Filipino homes. They were a hit. Hello Kitty soon followed afterward. The Japanese have always been with us.
