Thanks! Happy belated birthday to you too, I guess. Yeah I got a lot of imaginary chocolate.

That's just savage lol. Do some of those scenes have heavy spoilers too?

You mean in Thailand? The one with the highest competition for all areas/faculties is called Chulalongkorn which was where I graduated from, and then there are a few others that are popular in certain areas, like Thammasat (laws, political science etc) and Kasetsart (engineer, veterinary etc).

I see. That sounds quite similar to dispatched employees here (but they get 3 years before the workplace decides what to do). From what I heard, I think it's pretty easy to get promoted to a regular employee at my company, so yeah, I would. But I'm actually thinking about changing my job. I wanna try working at an actual game company and I want a higher salary.

To be frank, I did try to learn the British accent (a mix of Manchester and London), and while I can kind of speak it, it's the only accent that takes a lot of energy to speak for some reason lol.

But you're Asian. From my experience, learning a language requires you to have certain ways of thinking and information processing more than anything. I know a lot of people who despite putting in a ton of effort, would never get a higher score than some dude who passes N1 with little to no preparation (No, I'm talking about an acquaintance of mine, totally not about myself). Same with those MOBA players who never get out of Copper despite having 2000 hours of play time lol.

Oh right, I totally forgot engagement exists lol.

Just be careful not to talk to old people.

Happy Birthday, Alfyan ~!^^
Klefki_of_Awsome Jan 10, 12:31 PM
The Retro OG 3! Sounds like a Sentai name ngl, lol~xD> Pretty neat to have a long time irl friend on MAL though, everyone I know online is a stranger tbh..^^'3 (well I'm friends with my brother on Discord ig, as well as a few college classmates but that's basically it).

Yes, exactly! Though tbh, if I start working, I might have to work on Saturdays, provided I get the job where I want to apply first, ofc..

Oof, sounds though.. My brother also had an additional teeth and they didn't remove it afaik, it just went away naturally from the braces, but in my case, my jaw wouldn't return to a "normal" position if they didn't remove those two teeth, so they did. Idk if it was the same for you or not, but in my case, my teeth were almost perpendicular to my upper lips, making it hard to close my mouth normally.. Nowadays though, it's already a lot better, the teeth in question moved the most during the first few weeks, and now I only have a small gap between my upper and lower front teeth.

It's covered by health inssurance, but after next year it won't be anymore (since rn I am still under my parents' inssurance until I turn 26 [it stops at 25]).

Hmm, I see..>:I>

No, I'll be watching it with the rest of the Spring 2023 stuff next year..

Yeah, we are both very late, haha..x'D>

Happy Belated New Year!

How am I gonna live without my daily unfunny memes on my social media feeds.

Yeah, I gotta admit that's a really bad part about higher education in Asia. In Thailand, we also have a few top universities where everyone competes to get in.

I guess you could say that? Well, so basically there are three main types of full-time employees in Japan, regular employee, contract employee (me), and dispatched employee. "Regular employee" is the true perm one, where you never have to sign the contract every 6 months (I think) and in most cases get bonuses. As for contract employees, your company can't just stop renewing your contract without having to actually fire you. A lot of companies (including the one I'm working for) let you take some kind of test(?) to get promoted from a contract employee to a regular employee.
I don't think I have to go all the way to England. Whenever I go to the office, I feel like I'm not even in Japan anymore since most of my colleagues are non-Japanese and a lot of them are English speakers lol.

Isn't being able to watch anime without subs a good enough incentive?

Iirc they tried, but failed miserably several times.

Fiance... So everybody's already got married, huh.

Tokyo is a heaven for introverts. (I get annoyed every time whenever I hear foreigners during an interview say Japanese are unfriendly. THEY are the ones that are too friendly, especially to strangers...)
Rythme Aug 13, 2023 5:41 AM
I don't even follow those things on Facebook. It was a random person I met (and probably have never talked to) at the university, sharing a post with a manga panel with a major spoiler...
Speaking of the delay, I was super scared about spoilers at first when I started using a Japanese streaming site because some anime air a week late (sometimes streaming sites here have an early streaming monopoly, so other streaming sites have to wait a few days a week before they can start streaming). But luckily, I haven't run into anything major yet since I don't click English anime videos.

I guess it's a good balance there, unlike in Asia, haha. (Not that universities in Asia are bad though).

Well, at first I was just looking for a part-time job while I was studying. I luckily landed it and worked as a part-timer for a few months, then they asked me if I wanted to work full-time, so I said yes. I'm working as a contract employee, but it's a permanent role. So as long as I don't, for example, go to work late 2-3 times during the contract period, my contract will always be renewed.
I definitely learn a lot from translating mobile games. Before working there, I almost couldn't understand a thing in the JP version of Genshin lol.
I still wish I was an English native though, since it would give me a lot more job opportunities and get to be involved in IPs that I like. The Japanese smartphone game market in Thailand is still kind of limited compared to the English-speaking regions.

I guess that makes sense. The reason Taiwan was there on an island was because they ran away from the mainland in the first place lol.

Some of my favourite seiyuu are already talking about turning 30... It's scary...

To be honest, there isn't anything much interesting because I rarely go outside (apart from going to Akihabara to buy some manga or to events like concerts or game exhibitions alone).

I'm pretty much working fully remotely. The only time I ever go to the office is when I need to do physical paperwork (maybe twice a year), or when I want to hang out with my co-workers.
Klefki_of_Awsome Jul 28, 2023 1:13 PM
2011 is still a good 6 years before i join so imo it's pretty old, haha, but you're right, people like Mona have been around for much longer then you ig~^^>3

I see.. :o> If I'm not following my anime schedule exactly, I sometimes forget what day of the week we are, though that gets fixed if I have a schedule planned in my head and remember what day we are (like I remember that today is Friday) but then again, there are days I forget to do very basic things like taking a shower or doing my bed, stuff like that.. Sucks getting older, but what sucks even more is forgetting the time that passes by around us..>.<3

I won't work this Fall finally, since i'm starting braces this year and they want me to wait 3 months between each installation before I can start working (rn I have the first set in my upper row of teeth but they left two out on purpose since those will connect to the bottom ones with the elastics).. Well either way, this conveniently works out for me since I have lots to do until next year but I'll at least start looking this Fall, probably, so I can start working ASAP~^^'>3

Hmm? Does it tie to the score of the anime each week?>:o>

I liked both, Yunomi is great but I liked the visuals from the second OP more and the upbeat parts in both OPs are addicting imo, really enjoy the songs from that series!!<3 X'39

Btw, super sorry for the late reply, been ultra busy irl in the last 3-4 months or so so had a hard time coming over to do replies..>.<'3
Rythme Jul 1, 2023 9:35 AM
I was on Facebook the other day and got another spoiler...

I guess we're gonna start thinking about it every time we comment now lol.

I see. Maybe what I heard only applies to the US or something. Since they can go on fine without a degree, I guess the mindset's different over there.

Thanks! I don't know if I should be happy though.
I'm doing localisation. Most of the projects I'm working on are smartphone game translation (JP-TH).

Left China, of course haha.

Now that you put it that way lol.

Apart from my former classmates, the only people I got acquainted with recently are my co-workers...
I sometimes think about going to a hangout event or something like that, but as an introvert, it takes too much energy just to think about it lol.
Klefki_of_Awsome Mar 31, 2023 10:42 AM
Oh OK..^^'3 I guess you were one of the older members to join in MAL's early days?

I guess when you're not feeling it, it might seem like a pain to do something, even if you're used to do it.. Well we all have days like that tbh~=v=3

Yup, I'll be keeping up with some language classes and kanji classes in the meantime I think, and i've fixed my schedules so I could start working a day a week starting with this Fall. I just need to catch up on a ton of anime I missed while I was at school first, or I'll be unable to do both work and that..>v>'3

I see~ What does that entail?

Ohh, did you see the OP for Tonikaku Kawaii 2 btw? They posted the sequence in advance of the anime next week last week-end during Anime Japan and I have to say, it looks AMAZING!! Season 1 was catchy but this might beat it imo~!>:P> Judging from the scenes used, it also seems like it might cover Tsukasa's past, something I'd been dying to know about since the start of S1~!>:'D9
Rythme Mar 29, 2023 9:41 AM
I feel so sorry for you lol. It's about time YouTube's AI learn to now show spoilers.

I get that feeling. Sometimes I also got something similar, like being able to understand pretty much perfectly when I listen to an English-speaking video, but once I think about it, I stopped being able to grasp everything like before.

Yup. I used to study Russian and Arabic for 2-3 years though, but don't even bother ask about those lol.

I heard it's hard to graduate from a European/American university. Is that true? (In Asia, generally, the professionals will do anything to push and make you able to graduate).

I haven't told you this yet, but I just started my first full-time job at the beginning of this month! (Although my salary isn't so high, so I'd still starve if USD falls lol).

Even most of my classmates from China also left because of the same reason lol.

I'll catch up to you in no time...

Surely I will! But I need to find a friend first.
Memor Mar 21, 2023 5:09 PM
tis the normal otaku routine, work - anime - games - sleep =w=
sorry I'm well over a month late but happy bday to you!
Klefki_of_Awsome Mar 10, 2023 4:28 PM
I seriously thought you were older than me from the way you behave online, lol~x'D
Then how old were you when you joined MAL?? You were probably still a kid back then so I guess you had consent from the parents or guardians to use the site?

Because of the weather? Or something else?

I used to be giddy about getting Holidays when I had school but now that I'm on holiday all the time (for this year and the start of next year), it just feels bland and boring at times..x'D>
Klefki_of_Awsome Feb 27, 2023 2:42 PM
You're pulling my leg, aren't you??xD>

Skipping it.. As in your training?

Oh, I didn't work at my college library, I worked at some school libraries the first time around and then in a public library for the second and last placement..:o>

Oh, well if it gives you a free day off, who's to complain, lol?xD
Rythme Feb 22, 2023 2:10 AM
What kind of trap did you run into? lol

I probably can never go back to EN subs lol. To be honest though, although I don't understand everything, I kind of feel that I enjoy anime more now without subs since I don't have to look at the bottom part of the screen all the time, and I can see a lot more of what's going on.
I would if they let me, but I'm not a native English speaker, so...

Must be nice to not have to go through all the bs competition to get into an elite school XD

A lot. I was like 20-30 yen cheaper last month. It's going up again though. Been pretty wild lately...

Speaking of Hong Kong, for some reason, there are so many people from there in my class, haha.

We're so old...

It was awesome! Except for the part where the bridge was under repair.

So you're 30 now? Congrats!^^

Well we got a threadmill for Christmas and I use it now and then and have already felt the effects of it. I also sometimes due some of my routine stretches from when I did aikido from time to time and I feel that helps a lot as well~!=v=3

A new service they started out during COVID at our college library was Mental health guidance and help, which is literally what it says, help for people having mental health issues or needing to talk to someone. They also did workshop explaining what is mental health and the different forms of mental illness among other topics.
