The samurai didn't stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone's swords.

Things I've Learned While Living with Gin (by Kagura)
1. Buildings get destroyed because they are in the way. 2. If you're going to stalk someone, watch out for pit-traps! 3. People who say Santa doesn't really exist actually want to believe in him. 4. Some people (Shinpachi) are always the butt of the joke. 5. No matter what Gin says, ice cream is a great prize for winning a snowball fight, uh-huh!
