My friend has worked in Japan for the better part of the decade. From his experience and what he tells me about guys he’s worked with, when it comes to dating foreigners Japanese women seem to more likely look for a short time fling than a long time relationship unfortunately. There are of course precedents of successful marriages, but just take that as a cautionary tale.

Korean writing system is easy, I don’t speak or understand Korean but I can read it, I learned it in an hour, like 10 years ago and I haven’t forgotten it to this day. I personally don’t like Korean girls though because they wear a shitton of makeup, the guys occasionally do too.


Like I said, I'm already going with the knowledge that I'll be looking for someone that values me and sees my ethnicity as a bonus, instead of focusing on the ethnicity thing. It's in all seriousness pretty much like America: You'll have a lot of people looking for something "exotic", and those cases can often stand out. I'm obviously not writing off that yeah, I'll still have to put effort into relationships, but I also won't put all my stock in the accounts of other people, as there's always so many variables. What types of guys are the people he works with? What kind of girls do they go for? Etc.

If I want a fling over there, I'll just find some gyarus or a soapland, but that's not what I want to go there for, so I highly doubt I'd bother

Korean is just confusing to me. Like, it seems like it has a "radical" system like kanji, but I pretty much only see like, the same circle and then a few small variations of squiggles, all just arranged differently, and it is just lost on me I've watched some K-pop videos with friends who are big on it, and they have "romaji" subtitles, and... Holy crap, Korean just seems like throwing the alphabet into a blender and saying what spews out I still stumble with certain conjugations in Japanese (the -nakereba one slows me down a fair amount recently), so having what reads to me like a string of nonsense seems impossible

Vote for Kaede for Best Character 2018!



That whore Akane Shinjo is stealing our beloved imouto's votes. We absolutely CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN!








Even if we must murder all those who stand in our way, Kaede must be given the recognition she deserves! For our little sister, we must be prepared to do anything! Vote for Kaede!

Happy cake day Jing.

Also ran across this animation novelty this morning: Salvador Dali - Destino. Walt Disney (2003).

It was a surrealist project storyboarded by John Hench and Salvador Dali in 1945-46.


Accidentally voted for the wrong Hinata, hope I caught it fast enough.

Halfway through s;g0.

So Hangul, the Korean alphabet, is essentially like a cross between Tetris and the English Alphabet. Each circle and line is a letter, it has a single phonetic sound (unlike Japanese which combines consonants and vowels). Then they will simply just stack 2 to 4 letters into a syllable, that’s essentially it. The circle gives a ng sound like in Sing, if it’s placed at the beginning of a syllable though then it is silent and just means that syllable doesn’t start with a consonant.

So every single character in Korean is just a stack letters. The horizontal and vertical straight lines that have a little knob occasionally are vowels, and everything else is a consonant.

3.5 episodes of s;g0 left. I'm going to sleep.

Is the second season of Gunslinger girl good? I was turned off by the art change but thinking of trying it again.

I took the Pottermore quiz. I'm in house Slytherin. I dunno, I kind of considered myself a bit more Ravenclaw than Slytherin. I took it 3 times though, and it's always been Slytherin. So I guess I am a Slytherin.

*Reads the results of the sweet 16 vote*




*Me ripping up these obviously manipulated results*



*Me trying to hold back the rage*



*Me being sad at first*



*Me realizing what an injustice this is*



*Me getting angry*



*Now me getting even more enraged*


We had only one job...I failed as an Onii-chan...what is the point of living?

DId people really think that SSSS.Gridman was that good? When I saw it, I thought it was okay. I liked the idea behind it, but none of the characters really resonated with me, especially not Akane.

Well, yes. It was one of my favorites in 2018. Akane was easily my favorite villain, and one of my favorite characters overall. Akane had psychological issues that were deeply explored throughout the show. She was a villain who needed to be helped, not defeated, and that was a refreshing approach.
