I know that you meant well on an individual level, but knowing how the group mentality in U-E works, with how many times shitty opinions were traced to sub-forums like Casual Discussion, I couldn't help but feel that it's the same pattern this time as well, since it seemed like an exaggeration of an issue where there is none, or rather, a different issue with censorship in general, and how the featured article writers lack in basic sensibility of how to formulate their articles meant primarily for casual users. Also, discussing site politics in AD of all places (which ironically might be more casual than CD, despite the toxicity there), with basically just calling out the administration as Nazis and the lack of self-awareness of the users, frankly, I had a hard time interpreting it as anything but a lure for the usual shitstorm.

Not defending anyone, the people running this place consider their users as sheep, with the addition of the optional subscription and whatnot, but I think that you should pursue this issue, if you honestly perceive it as one, in a different way. Maybe write a blog post, present research of such things potentially happening in the past, track down officer activity and profiles, and actually post in the Suggestions sub-forum, since I'm pretty sure that most admins and mods don't frequent AD at all.

I watched only 1 episode but I don't really care either way.

hahaha, I assumed Meta told you that right? Yeah, how's things been?

If you weren't hooked by the oneshot, then the completed work won't impress you either. It's got good intentions and delivers when it comes to conveying the sense of regret that's taken over the main character. And yet, the characters aren't three-dimensional enough to really work. The main girl is really just nice. Outside of being nice and deaf, there's nothing to her. The love triangle also gets intrusive. But that's mainly because the story is super melodramatic. A lot of people are screaming and beating each other up. At one point, a parent joins the fray and things get cringe-worthy with how bombastic things get. There are also a few plot-points that aren't resolved which could've helped strengthen the emotional core of the story.

Somehow, the story still manages to come out decent. Average. Possibly because the manga has good intentions and that still shines by the end. Not bad but not worth any hype. Take out the element of disability in the story and all you have is a manga about bullying without good characterization to really give it some heft.

Have you seen the new Godzilla movie?
Exinqt Sep 1, 2016 6:56 AM
I like it quite a bit. It's nothing great, but it's got quite a solid cast and plot. Nothing I can complain about too much, definitely above average for a shoujo. I don't think it'll be a waste of time for you to read it.

The rest of the Ubers conspired against me. Backed me up against a corner and got me to read all of Bleach and Nisekoi. My brain hasn't fully recovered.

(Currently reading Maison Ikkoku tho. It's pleasant and funny but nothing special about it just yet.)

Hey Aizo, how have you been?

As for me, I finished up a year in my grad program and I'm almost finished with summer classes. I can't wait to see my family back home. I didn't realize how much I missed them until I moved away. We've been communicating more than ever recently, which is great. I also started meditating. Good stuff! As for anime/manga my approach has been different. I've been enjoying more manga and more books. Very exciting.

Anything new, old, usual, unusual, interesting, uninteresting with you? :)

What are good exercises for practicing reading hiragana and katakana? I'm lazy and my progress is pretty slow when it comes to learning them, but I'm doing hiragana fine in realkana, so I'd want to practice actual reading. I tried reading Yotsubato since everyone recommends that, but it's a bit difficult when you're not able to check symbols you're not sure about. Still need to work on my katakana though, which is what I need the most, since I'm mostly learning that to be able to read stuff in games. In the past five or so years I've been playing so many simple Japanese games that not learning runes would be just stupid. I'm mostly playing Super Robot Wars and SD Gundam G Gen games, so being able to read names and attacks is the main goal (but I'll probably move up to kanji as well at this point).

It's such a weird reason to learn Japanese, but I figured that since the games I play the most will never get localized, might as well learn to read at least. And not like it would go to waste, there are so many untranslated manga, especially from iconic authors like Yokoyama, Ishinomori and Nagai. Didn't Yokoyama even have a record for most released pages of manga? Yet I think only two of his works are translated (Mars and Giant Robo), while his Romance of the Three Kingdoms is being translated.

a scalation group picked up i am a hero again, they already covered 2 volumes, they are currently in chapter 218.

meanwhile i'm waiting for more yotsuba&! scans, but it looks like it isn't popular enough around the scanlation groups, since it's stuck at chapter 97 for a while now.

how's work going? you got back in tokyo right?

and by the way, did you start that thing i sent you?

good to hear from you mate.
Xykko Apr 25, 2016 4:02 AM
nice, i think i'll just look for some raws and read them. did you read it? do you think it's reaching the conclusion?

i'm interested in the movie. the cast is almost spot on, especially hideo. i just hope the adaptation doesn't disappoint as usual

I'm too broke.

I heard in japan schools force elementary schoolers to write compositions in polite language until middle school so they learn how to use it later in life when it could be necessary. It's second-hand information though so it might have as well be completely made up (hence the 聞いた).

>Are you a sponge?

The trick is really just mixing fun and studying... like playing games with text hookers, but I did study hard the first two months or so. That said unfortunately my skills are limited to reading and it takes great effort to write more than basic sentences since I don't have many people I can practice with yet. Speaking would be a lost cause entirely lol... however those are improving as well albeit slowly but aren't as important as reading considering I don't live in japan :)

小学生の時に全部のの作文を丁寧語で書かせると聞いたから、それで両形に慣れる為に俺も丁寧にした。 普通形「正直に本の名は知らない」ならいつも読んでいるから練習など必要がない。
