なるほど
音楽界に入るっていうのはつまりミュージシャンを目指してるんですか?
どんな感じの音楽を作ってるんですか?
僕はそういう才能はないんで憧れます。

Alabastreさんはどうやって日本語を勉強したの?
loqfruzt Apr 13, 5:20 PM
海外育ちだけど、一応日本人だよ。
loqfruzt Apr 12, 8:17 AM
I'm sure it's not so expensive if you're earning money, but I'm still a student, so spending more than the bare minimum isn't something I'd consider just yet.
I don't follow any magazines right now because uploads are inconsistent.
あと、日本語の練習をしたいのならそっちで話してもいいですよ

Too poor to buy stuff. Maybe I would if I lived in Japan but importing is too expensive.
I happen to like a lot of what's published in Harta though.

Yep! It was long ago (in 2013), but I haven't been very active updating my profile (I've been 25 since 2015 xD). Thanks! How are you doing now?

Really that bad? Tbh I don't even know what it is about, I wanted to read basically because I read everything cyberpunk since it's my favorite genre apart from fantasy and there's not that much works out there apart from games. Urban settings are a weak spot for me as well. Speaking of which, have you read Transmetropolitan? It's my favorite Ellis comic together with Fell.

Oh, I will take a look at it. The Judas Contract is another comic that I've been delaying for too long to read. Another "cape-ish" comic that I really like is Black Orchid by Gaiman.

Yeah, there sure are a lot of great stuff but overall I kinda tend to overlook them, Tom King was the first name that caught my attention in quite a while. I also like stuff by Kurt Busiek, Matt Fraction and the big names from the UK (the recent short Moon Knight run by Ellis was just fun as hell), except Morrison nowadays. He's someone I once considered a genius but grew kinda tired of him, except for WE3. Also I'd always read his stuff translated, so the first time I actually read the original I discovered I couldn't stand his writing.

I will try them out eventually for sure. And yeah, Harta has a surprisingly high amount of great titles. I actually had all of their most popular ones on my ptr.

I used to read a lot of superhero comics when I was younger, but a while ago I gave some of them a try and I got that awful feeling of "how did I like all of this so much" and basically gave up on them. There were some that I enjoyed reading again but eh (I was mostly a DC/Vertigo person though, haha). And oh, that's a surprise. I thought american comics would at least have some place in the Japanese market, since now and then a marvel anime comes out. I started reading Vision and really liked it too, but I ended up not fisinishing until now because I got drowned in mangas to read. Right now Mr. Miracle and (barely) Sandman are the only ones I've been reading.

Wow, I haven't heard of Wild Storm until now, but I just saw it is written by Warren Ellis so I will definitely check it out. He's one of my favorite comics writers alongside Mignola and Don Rosa. Also, three other comics that I am really eager to read are Monstress, Tokyo Ghost and Shade the changing girl (oh, and OTGW that I just discovered has a comic thanks to your bio). About Deathstroke, I always wanted to give him a read because I loved his character on Teen Titans but I never quite knew what to read since and he seems just like a normal bountyhunter on comics. What do you recommend of him?

I've never read that much non-cape graphic novels outside of the vertigo imprint because they are always quite expensive here and a lot of them are hard to find online, so going blind was a big no. I've just read things like Maus, Blankets, Jimmy Corrigan, The Arrival and one called Three Shadows that hit home hard and I just adore it. I need to read That One Summer by Jillian once I manage to diminish the mountain of manga whichi toppled down on me.
eldritch Jan 23, 12:42 PM
Yeah, I don't usually read much superhero comics but this got me completely hooked. If it continues like it is until the end it might as well become one of my favorite western comics, haha

分かりました。では、ジャックと呼ばせてもらいますね。

あ、すみません。「この漫画が凄い」は、ニュースで少し知っただけなので、読んだことがあるわけではないです。
知名度の低い漫画の探し方ですね。
最近はWEBで連載している漫画が多くありますので、そういうサイトを巡回すると、お気に入りの漫画が見つかると思います。
それと、新刊を紹介しているサイトをのぞいてみるのも、普段は気に留めないジャンルの面白い作品発見につながるかもしれません。

なるほど。このサイトでは英語しか使わないので、日本語で話すのは少し違和感があります(笑)。
=================================================================================================
I understand. Then I'll call you Jack.

Ah, let me clear. I just heard of news about "Kono Manga ga Sugoi" a bit, and it's not that I've read it.

You want to know how to find little-known but good manga, right?
There are many online manga sites nowadays, so I think you can find your favorite manga if you check these.
And checking sites that review newly published manga may lead you to discover interesting works from genres you are not usually interested in.

I see. Well, since I speak only in English on this site, it sounds ridiculous but it's kind of weird that I speak in Japanese lol

I don't watch a lot of anime anymore so I don't come here often, and no reason to use steam either. Been busy with school and work too.
MyBUSHIDO Jan 3, 2:19 AM
どちらも名前を聞いたことがあるだけで、読んだことはないですね。
「この漫画が凄い!」のような雑誌で特集されていた気がします。
ありがとうございます!
ジャックさんの母語は何ですか?

Ive just heard of the names and not tried to read them.
I think a magazine "Kono Manga ga Sugoi!" or something like that featured them.
Thank you!
May I ask what is your mother tongue, Jack-san?
MyBUSHIDO Dec 30, 2017 3:20 AM
ジャックさん、こんにちは。
いえいえ、話すには十分の日本語力を持っていると思います。
私は広告で「世界八番目の不思議」を見て、1~3巻まで買いました。
雑誌「ハルタ」に関しては、今初めて知ったぐらいです。
しかし、「世界八番目の不思議」
完結してしまいましたが「坂本ですが?」と、
春にアニメが放送予定の「ヒナまつり」、
の3作品程は読んだことがあります。
どれも面白くて好きです。

Hello, Jack! (I'm sorry if the spelling is wrong)
No problem. I think your Japanese is good enough to make conversations.
In my case, I happened to know "Sekai Hachibanme no Fushigi" seeing the manga's advertisement on the Internet, and bought volume 1 to 3.
You mentioned "Haruta", and I realized there's a magazine named so.
But, among manga in the magazine,
"Sekai Hachibanme no Fushigi"
"Haven't you heard? I'm Sakamoto" that already ended,
"Hinamatsuri" that the anime will be aired this Spring.
I've read those three manga.
Since they are fun to read, I like them too.

I sent you the RAW of the version I watched. Very nice quality. The file is a bit large but it's worth it.
lordzeru Dec 29, 2017 5:42 AM
I downloaded a blu-ray copy of the movie with some fansubs. I can probably send you the RAW if you're interested.
