Lol well at least you tried! And just curious, what were some of the things that were bugging you about the CR forums?

Ya, those things are dangerous! Honestly, I don't like mobile games too much anyways, I get bored of them pretty fast. I would just rather play a game on a console/handheld. The forums can be a huge time drain too if you get too caught up in them. Just gotta watch yourself!

Ah dude there's no worries. I haven't been as active there either. After a while you just get kind of burnt out and tired of some of the people, I completely understand, that's why I don't roam the forums as much as I used to. But ya, here on MAL it's a mess, so much needless arguing and bitching... it makes the Crunchyroll forums look like Little House on the Prairie. But CR can have some bad threads too like the recent Re:Zero thread is a perfect example. It only takes one person to ruin a thread (in this case, it'd be Max >_>).

Good good, glad to know you're still around the corner. And haha that's one of the reasons I don't play mobile games, they just take away so much time!

Sounds interesting!

Kira getting bit by Komodo dragons is a bit odd. How did he get cornered by them? Did he wonder off on his own?

I'm glad he's okay. I don't really care for Himiko or Ryota, so I'm hoping that Kira beats them. If he can't, I hope at least they spare him and get off the island alive.

Please, do spoil!
SnazzGary May 10, 4:50 PM
Aww, my poor baby.


I guess I'll just have to wait to read it. I can't find it anywhere.
SnazzGary May 10, 4:03 PM
Aw man, I was starting to like Togo.

Wow, that is getting pretty dark. Never would've expected them to go that route.

Anything on Kira?
SnazzGary May 10, 3:19 PM
Go ahead and spoil me! I didn't realize they were old characters. I'm not even sure if I'll get around to reading it anyway.

SnazzGary May 10, 3:10 PM
What happened? I haven't read any manga or watched any anime in forever. I totally forgot about Btooom!. I stopped because more characters were being introduced even though the end was supposed to be nearing.

I think going to live on japan, and just prefering to put your kids into an international school, it is a big mistake, it will pay off in the future, and they will surely thank you one day.

I love them, I love thanking hot baths, I would love to sit in one and just relax, to the point I would even start to snoring.
But surprisingly they have strict rules for the use of onsen, which is good. Like for long hair, and other stuff, I m not finding the word at english now, it is not clipping your hair...

You are probably old enough, you have already had your time alone to do the stuff you wanted, before you even decided to have kids.
Playcool Apr 27, 11:52 AM
That was quite interesting, more than I though. You really seem to have an big amount of experiences about japan.
So about onsens, are they really the paradise?? (I love bathing hot water btw, helps relaxing your muscles)

Dunno about that, even some years later, because the longer you are living there, the harder will be for your children, like parting from friends and stuff.
Many people dont realize it till they get there but having kids limitates your life much more than you even think of, your life spins around theirs, so you have to work to support their lifes, it is similiar to have a pet, but more burdening, and more fullfilling later on too.
I have had my dog for 14 years, and when we had to put her to sleep, only then you realize how is soo much different, than not having another living being depending of you.

Since you brought the subject.

So you work in a software company, seems different from the norm. Well if you just like japan I think you should go and ask for that long term transfer, if it is all good with your overall situation around the house.
Japan is so different from the rest of the world that I think it is really worth of it.
Playcool Apr 25, 2:52 AM
But what was the company? What was the work? And did it offered them to return, but you guys were affraid it happening again?
Playcool Apr 24, 5:46 PM
Oh, I m remenbering that now, 2011 earthquake, remenbering on the news.
What happened next? Did the foreign staff returned?
Playcool Apr 23, 10:02 AM
So you were living in japan along time but the natural disasters made you think otherwise?
I m glad stuff are usually peacefull from where I live in.
Playcool Apr 22, 4:24 PM
Well that is something that only with more time into it I will came to grasp, and I m only going to start getting deeply into kanji when I start reading RAW VNs, but first I need to finish some stuff, until I guess I will have to get by with learning grammar and some vocab.

Considering creators normally dont get much revenue outside japan... usually if it is not doing well inside Japan, the work would never officially go overseas, so the things you can support are very limited, and when you support it is not like the creator was in dire straits for your cash.
I get the feeling though. But I only support stuff I really, like really really enjoy, literally, I have at least to have gave it an 8, and not a small 8, since I have my own ratings, I mean big 8's, like around 8.3-8.4. Even if I was rich, I wouldnt buy much stuff, it is not like I have an multidimensional "pocket" like doraemon to store all my shit. The more you have in life, the more you have to take care of too.

VOFAN? Is that the illustrator?
Well, being completly honest, I was never found of Monogatari illustrations, there is just not much I can associate with.

"Japanese politicians often make blunders reading the speeches that are written for them, that's how tough it is. It is a complicated written language. There have been movements to dump kanji for multiple reasons but they haven't caught on yet. Even beyond kanji, Japanese is a very minimal language; it is very context sensitive and literary works can be open to a wide variety of interpretations. Signs in Japan have both kanji and romaji and this is not just for foreigners, this is for the locals as well."
SUch troublesome people, to the point they even troubled themselves with their language... well it does have its beauty to it, as language, so it should counter its cons.

You sure know alot about it, do you speak with japanese folks alot? Like it seems you have been living among side them for years to have all that feedback.
