Jumeau de fiction

(English below)

Je savais depuis des siècles que je partage mon anniversaire avec des noms célèbres comme Giuseppe Verdi, Daniel Lemire, Bai Ling et la reine des mangakas, Rumiko Takahashi (tous nés longtemps avant moi). Je savais aussi que le personnage titre du manga Naruto avait le même anniversaire. Eh bien, pas plus tard qu'hier, je me suis trouvé un véritable jumeau de fiction, ayant non seulement le même jour mais aussi la même année de "naissance". Il s'agit également d'un personnage titre de manga (et d'une série animée, en haute définition): Ryuu Sasakura, le barman de Bartender. Mais je suis incapable de vous faire un Black Velvet en versant le champagne et la Guinness simultanément.

Sometimes it's fun to know who has the same birthday as you do. I've known for ages that I share my birthday with such famous people as Giuseppe Verdi, Bai Ling and the Queen of all mangakas, Rumiko Takahashi (all born years before myself). I'm also the virtual twin to a certain Casanova who is not a member of the Ramones (OK, so the guy isn't really famous outside of an old SUMS circle). But there's also fictional characters who were "born" on the same day as myself, the most popular likely being Naruto Uzumaki, the title character of the manga Naruto. Well, it turns out the title character of another manga (and animated series, in high definition no less) is also my virtual fictional twin (having the exact same birthdate, including the year): Ryuu Sasakura, the genius bartender of Bartender. But I can't claim to be able to mix a Black Velvet by pouring the champagne and Guinness simultaneously, free-handed.
