    and wins!!!

    this guy left his job after the earthquake, grabbed SCUBA gear and went INTO the fucking Tsunami to go find his wife...

    I'm not going to post the entire thing here because the pictures that go with it are great (and whoever wrote this definitely adds a flair of theatricality), but reading that brought tears to my eyes. I can't even imagine what was going through his head, but this guy is a true fucking hero.

    he's a quick sample of the story

    What a great article. Makes me wish real newspapers were written like that.

    I'd be willing to bet he could stare down Godzilla all by himself.

    Truly amazing stuff here. I think this quote sums it up the best though-

    "I guess when you're a truly unstoppable badass, you, by definition, don't let anything stand in your way. You make shit happen, all the time, no matter what. "

    What... what. The rational part of my brain doesn't believe this can be true. It just doesn't think its possible that one dude can just throw on a scuba suit and wade out into a city-annihilating tsunami filled with all manner of life-ending debris to save the lives of his family, stranded alone in icy waters without food or supplies for days. But his story is corroborated by numerous sources, and that makes the romantic part of my brain, which shouts about the overwhelming power of a burning heart and the unconquerable spirit of people fighting for the things they love, very, VERY happy. This guy is my new hero.

    An ocean of tears
    Drags the very earth away
    His resolve still stands

    "Then I'll see you in hell!"

    Wow, this dude is boss. Truly a badass indeed. If there isn't an anime with this guy as the hero yet, then there really needs to be.
