But the question of whether this piece of anime merchandise is actually a piece of tail is a matter of perspective. A quick online search will turn up plenty of sexually explicit fan-made artwork for just about any piece of popular fiction, with anime and video games providing especially effective fertilizer for the minds of so-inclined illustrators.
We now know exactly how long we’ll have to wait to see Sakura again, and what she’ll look like when we do. It’s become a bit of a trend for anime/manga franchises to mark important milestones with one-shot side stories, as demonstrated by Fullmetal Alchemist and The Rose of Versailles. So when manga creative team Clamp’s announcement that they were making more Cardcaptor Sakura manga coincided with the series’ 20th anniversary, many people expected it to be a single-chapter affair.
Fugu, one of Japan’s most gourmet foods, is the ramen star of the classy Ginza neighborhood. Like most forms of pasta, ramen noodles themselves don’t have much flavor, and so the deciding factor when picking a ramen restaurant is the broth. The three most popular broth varieties in Japan are tangy miso (most common in the north), mild soy sauce (a favorite of east and central Japan) and tonkotsu, a savory pork stock (prevalent in the western part of the country).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
