        I had it on my desktop for about a month, too! I love Japanese art (not to include anime or any of the recent crap that they've been putting out...).

          Not a huge anime fan, but Tsunami's are pretty interesting. Heh, I was actually reading Shogun at the time and figured it was fitting.

                Was this on the cover?
