Tuesday Terminology is a weekly segment to enlighten the masses with words, phrases, and ideals usually tacked on to today’s anime/manga scene.
This week’s topic: Mirai
Mirai (みらい; 未来)
This week’s Yuyushiki episode has reminded me of one of the most often used questions in almost every series set in High School: “What do you want to do in the future?” Heck, they even take surveys in Japanese schools to see what each student wants to do after they graduate from school. Most kids usually go with one of the usual two choices: Higher Education or Work. Better yet, there is always some weird, prankster response on those surveys because some people just don’t take it seriously.
