Circular breathing is blowing my mind. How the heck.

edit: I guess Fairy Gone is Sunday and the chart I was looking at had it on Friday by mistake.

edit: Fruits Basket was done well, not sure it's something I'll be keeping up with though.

I take a look at the Quintessential Quintuplets thread and suddenly it became a thread about the manga.

Understandable, especially with NTR and rape.


Those are two of the best kinds though

Look like Fridays have been taken over by cute school sols and romances.

I read a more serious one once, it made me depressed as hell. I stick to the likes of JKP ever since. Sure he’s grotesque, but also quite hilarious.

So they are making a dragon quest cg movie called “dragon quest your story”

It’s basically a retelling of DQ5.

Someone in the comment section of the German spring announcements blames the EU for the horrible simulcast situation this season . He even mentions the Brexit. I've seen people blaming the EU for many things (the EU isn't responsible for at all) but that has to be the most surprising complaint I've ever seen.

Fairy Gone is okay but it definitely feels like they could've spent more time on the screenplay.

edit:

Well this season isn't shaping up at all is it.

The PM system's dead, isn't it? It's never, ever coming back, is it?

Whole Cake Island definitely wasn't my favourite One Piece arc, but looking back I can find things I loved about it. We got to see how an Emperor's domain is structured and run, got a sense of scale for how powerful they and their forces are, and saw what kind of people occupy that station. We saw Luffy pushed to his limits, got to see Nami taking a more proactive role in the events around her than usual, tied up some loose ends from previous arcs, and got a little dash of romantic drama thrown into a show that otherwise keeps such elements comparatively scant. We met some new characters I enjoyed, like Reiju and Pudding, and some I didn't, like Judge.

On the whole I feel pretty satisfied even if there were some serious pacing issues and there was a lot more repetition than any arc ought to have. If I never hear the phrase "wedding cake" again I expect I won't miss it. Still, the sendoff episode ties everything up in a nice, neat little bow as a beautiful musical number, and I do feel like it was worth it after seeing everything reviewed so splendidly.

I hear that. The fact that as long as a verb comes at the end of a sentence and particles are placed properly sentences can be shifted around in whatever order a speaker likes makes things tricky, too. Some of the translations I've done have ended up sounding like Yoda-speak, and yet they're technically correct.

Still, those odd rules and variations are somehow fun and interesting, I think. Just looking at all the different rules for saying "I/me" can make one's head spin, but it's also kind of nice to get an additional source of information about characters' personalities, self-perceptions and presentations, and general outlooks just from how formal and rules conforming their choice of word is. Older men will sometimes drop the "ta" in "watashi" and just say "washi", for instance. "Boku" might be used by tomboyish girls and masculine women, but "ore" seems to be less commonly used in that way and is more strictly used by men and boys. You just seem to get this extra layer of information as a reader/listener you just don't find in some other languages.

I'm the only guy in my Japanese class that uses "Boku", oddly enough. Last year, when I was still taking it at my community college (before being a visiting student at the state university since there weren't enough students for 2nd year at the cc), in the first half of second semester we got the differentiation stuff between "watashi", "boku", and "ore" from our teacher (a native Japanese woman), and since then I pretty much only use "boku". The one other guy in the class would kinda swap back and forth between "watashi" and "boku", but I think that was just him forgetting sometimes

But in my class now, we have 5 guys (one who is full Japanese and one who is half), and from what I can catch when they talk (they're obviously fluent, so talk rather fast, haha), they don't use "boku" either". As I was taught by my first teacher, "boku" is the more polite yet masculine way of referring to oneself, whereas "ore" is usually the gruff one that usually implies some sort of attitude or kinda ultra-masculinity (so basically the Chad "I"). I'm by no means a Chad, but I'm definitely still a fairly masculine guy, so I use "boku" as that fits me better. The funny part is now that I've gotten used to using "boku", "watashi" actually sounds kinda girly to me Just even saying all three, once you get used to them, you can kinda sense the gruffness level in each. I guess the best way to say it, is the syllables in "watashi" are all kinda softer, "boku"'s syllables are still fairly soft but a little sharper (the b and u are softer parts to kinda even out the sharpness of the o and k). Then "ore" is just plain sharp. It's really hard to kinda explain, but I tried my best

The funny part is that "boku" is usually a bit more of a casual pronoun, but unless it's not possible, I pretty much always use polite conjugations for my sentences (generally -imasu), so my sentences sound a little strange, but give basically a polite masculine vibe. Neither of my professors have said anything about it being grammatically wrong to use them together, so I'd say I'm clear, but I am kinda interested to see how I'll initially be viewed by say, my host family should my exchange app go through fully (find out May 10th!). At least I won't be using the almost conflicting "ore" and "-imasu" together

I'm honestly impressed that YouTube somehow always finds a way to make their site worse. The home page is garbage now.

Edit: It seems to keep switching back and forth between the old version with recent videos recommended at the top and the newer version that wants me to watch a bunch of movies and makes me have to scroll down a bit to see my recommended videos, which for some reason uses a different algorithm than before to recommend me a mix of ancient videos and newer videos I've already watched.

Mysteria Friends is averaging +15K blu-rays. Second season when.

edit:

OPM was good, best of the season so far at least though that's proven to be a low bar in itself.

OPM was fine. Just fine... which is a big step back from how great season 1 was... So far Kimetsu no Yaiba had the best first episode for me followed by Fruits Basket. Fairy Gone was very awkward but I'll still give it a chance. Isekai Quartet is easily going to be comedy of the season and I like that they're using the OST from each show. Now to just wait for Carol & Tuesday and Attack on Titan.

I'm annoyed that so far only 2 of the 5 new shows I'm watching this season are on CR. Fairy Gone and Isekai Quartet went to Funimation and One Punch Man is only available on Hulu here. No idea who will get Carol & Tuesday but at least Attack on Titan should be safe, I hope.
