I miss your inputs in the discussion threads :( I was just in the Koitabi: True Tours Nanto discussions and remembered how much I liked reading your insights and informational posts.

If a topic derails into something else i don't see any reason why it shouldn't be locked. Or if it turns into a flame, war, etc. But news topics, everyone wants to place their views and opinions on the news articles, but when the topic is locked with in a few weeks, i guess thats impossible now.

Who's dumb ass idea was it to create this rule on MAL.

Thanks for your website recommendation , i will check it :p

"> How long did it take you to learn Japanese ?

Learning Japanese is an ongoing thing. I am still learning. So not quite sure what you mean here."

What were your knowledge when you went for the first time in japan?

I will more think about my question because i am too generalistic , sorry for that !

Hey symbv,

I have a few questions about Anime production/studios. So one anime studio is often most strongly associated with a specific show right? But in reality, does that one studio really do most of the animation, or is it split up between a number of studios?

For example, if you look at Code Geass ( It's typically associated with Sunrise right? But there are Gonzo, Shaft, etc. in the credits as well aren't they? Did they not benefit from its success as well? Perhaps they were not as invested in the show as Sunrise?

Oh okay , i think that i understood.

In fact , after your answer , i realized that my question was exactly the same if i ask you 'why the sky is blue?' , shonen is just shonen.(who means youg man) no more no less.

=>Not really understand what you say but at the end each magazine has its own editor board.

Never mind , i have tried to use french expression , but english can't do it ahah.

=>I read Japanese website everyday so I have tons of websites on everything. Your question is too general so it is difficult for me to give you recommendation.

hmm , let me think...
-Website about general news in japan? (e.g. today there is a strong snowstorm)
-Website about new upcoming anime , and BD/dvd released (in japan of course)

i will ask you more if something comes in my mind !

=>Well, even English otaku not all visit ANN every day I am sure.... And in terms of source, there are a lot more choices in Japan. To be honest, I do not like a lot of things in ANN and I know there are quite a number of people who dislike their bias in review and news reporting style, but those people do not have much choices - even though English is a major language internationally, English news on anime and manga seems to be still rare to come by.

my thoughts about japanese otaku is maybe wrong , tell me about things japanese otaku do ?(if you know)

they spend their time only on 2chan? lol

I dont know if you consider this like "personal" , but can you tell me more about your travel in japan?

Are there some websites (in english i guess) , that have helped you to prepare your travel?

How long did it take you to learn Japanese ?

Which level of japanese speak is necessary to go japan? (i mean , i have to know all kanji? or i can just know to read katakana and hiragana?)
Setsuna Feb 8, 2014 8:29 AM
And what's the meaning of shonen in japan? (not the usage)

why a manga like Seitokai Yakuindomo is in a shonen magazine?(i mean 'why Seitokai Yakuindomo was choosen to be published in a shonen manga?')

I understand that a shonen manga is just a shonen because he was published in a shonen magazine , but are there some specifics caracteristic that the fact a shonen is a shonen?
i would like to know what shonen is?

I don't understand how they choose 'okay one piece ; you will be published in the Weekly Shōnen Jump and you become a shonen and k-on ; you will published in the Manga Time Kirara and you will become a seinen ect,' , sorry if i confuse you with my shitty explaination xD

oh and for the second question , do you have some favorites japanese website who speak about japanese stuff? (japan news , anime news , manga ect)

plus , are there some popular otaku website that japanese otaku visites each day? (e.g. for english otaku there is ANN)

oh and is there a MAL-like in japanese?
Setsuna Feb 8, 2014 6:55 AM
Thanks for the answer !

One question for the beginning , how japanese otaku use the term 'shonen/shojo'? (like a genre , a certain audience?)

(i think it will look like a Q/A lol)
