Made-Up Character 5

Olga was a great admirer of Japanese culture. She was especially fond of anime; she knew every series ever aired on Japanese TV, every animated feature film based on a TV series, the names and histories of all the characters; she used to speak Japanese phrases to her uncomprehending friends, laughingly calling them coarse, ignorant gaijin.

Finally she packed up and moved to Japan, and when she landed at Narita airport and realized that Japan is populated by actual Asian people, not window-eyed elf-like beings in cosplay costumes, she ran under a bus.
