It seems I'll have to defer my discussion with the management, I was just handed a promotion by my supervisor. Well, that says a lot about tenacity.

Btw, what good anime have you seen lately? I'm curious about Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, it has a high rating on this site as far as I recall.

Euh, je ne sais pas pour Azur Lane.
Mais pour Love Live!, j'ai joué en F2P et ça passait.
Personnellement, j'adore le principe du gacha. Si je développais un jeu, ce serait probablement dans ce type de format.

Alors oui, les statistiques nous apprennent que c'est toujours la maison qui gagne, mais ce n'est pas là l'âme du jeu. L'âme du gacha, et du casino plus largement, c'est le hasard auquel on se suspend, le suspens. C'est l'excitation du gain possible.
Les marchés financiers sont trop... froids ? Ce n'est pas fun, ce n'est pas un jeu, c'est des courbes, des graphiques, des indicateurs, de la vie réelle.
Je savais pas que 20minutes couvrait des nouvelles japonaises ! J'évite leurs journaux récemment, parce que corona...

Oui, tu as bien fait de te barrer lol. Entre les Turcs qui viennent à Vienne, l'attentat à Nice avec deux chrétiens égorgés ce matin, les caricatures et le monde arabe VS Macron, le reconfinement, on sent que 2020 n'est pas encore fini. J'espère juste qu'il n'y aura pas un calendrier de l'avent qui ira de pire en pire pour devenir l'enfer à Noël... Mais cette année je m'attends à tout.

Tu vas où alors ? Si ça te dérange pas d'en parler publiquement, bien sûr. Ou tu peux venir en DM. D'ailleurs, tu as Discord ?

Qu'est-ce qu'un jeu manuel ?
Genre, arcade / analogue / IRL dans les casinos ? Les machines à sous ?
Oui, gacha vient des machines à sous, mais je ne vais jamais dans un casino.
Je ne sors pas beaucoup à vrai dire, surtout quand Macron le décide...
Mais oui, comme FGO.
Même si, en ce moment, ma référence est plutôt Honkai Impact 3. Même développeur que Genshin Impact, sauf que c'est F2P-friendly alors que GI ne l'est pas encore exactement.
Ou alors Girls' Frontline, Azur Lane, Kancolle et les jeux Love Live.

Et oui le sujet est limité...

I don't know, there was recent activity so I think it fills a void?
Not that I've got anything more to say about it.
Next time I'd open a similar thread it would be about gacha games.

Thank you for providing an in-depth explanation of the Publish or Perish mentality. I feel somewhat inspired to actually give a short talk about it at my company to convince the upper management to rethink my workload.

Kidding aside, I've always subscribed to the belief that quality trumps quantity. Using quantity as the yardstick to measure a person's productivity by will ultimately lead to burnout.

It's strange, indeed. I guess we could use these fancy terms to scare off teenagers lol.

I see, I learn something new every day. Thanks for your explanation!

When we pass into oblivion, eternal sleep will prevail. Better to get used to it mon ami.

I learned how to order coffee and to introduce myself as being a student in university and being from Pakistan. Then random verbs about eating and speaking. Nothing about love. Sigh. I picked up je t'aime from literature. Oh lol, I just realized t'aime, aimer... brilliant.
operationvalkyri Oct 24, 11:32 AM
Yes, they're being used for essential activities (Sleep is the most essential activity of the day).

Oh, really? You mean the second thing you learned when learning Japanese was the verb for love? What was the lesson? "Hello, how are you? I am in love with you"?
vuxk Oct 24, 10:44 AM
Don't want to derail the thread so I'll reply here:

You're welcome, although I didn't explain much and you probably had known about the concept. I have no idea why they use the term "subaltern", it just gives an appearance lol.

The term you mentioned is as obscure. I checked in a dictionary, it means "to include"?

subsume
verb (used with object)
1. to consider or include (an idea, term, proposition, etc.) as part of a more comprehensive one.
2. to bring (a case, instance, etc.) under a rule.
3. to take up into a more inclusive classification.

Thanks for sharing the quote. So he argues that everyone can take out time for the things that they really want to do? I agree to an extent. I do not agree with the use of the term "waste" when it comes to activities like dressing, sleeping and eating, etc. These are essential activities that one cannot substitute. There should be no such implication that since I am wasting 6 hours of my time sleeping, I should be able to use 2 hours of that to, say, learn guitar. It's the time one spend procrastinating that is the real problem. The "I'll get to it" thought should be banned she says while procrastinating on some essential shopping activities.

To be honest, I've forgotten most of what I learned in that meager one month. Only the most basic words and phrases remain. I don't think I covered aimer in that time, either. I definitely remember the words that can double as Urdu insults heehee.
operationvalkyri Oct 24, 8:36 AM
I didn't. You tell me so much about Japanese but you forget to sprinkle in French lessons.
operationvalkyri Oct 24, 5:47 AM
Oh wow haha, I didn't know that aimer is itself a French word. Now I'll have to say her name differently. Shucks.
operationvalkyri Oct 24, 5:36 AM
I haven't seen any interviews or such of Aimer so I don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced but I pronounce it like the Japanese ai and then mer. Funnily, Amber here is pronounced differently than how the English do it. The A has the same short sound as in the a in my name. Aimer sings many different kinds of songs: fast OP type, slow melodic, melancholic, poppish, etc. Many variations.

Thank you for the full version. It's quite a beautiful song.
operationvalkyri Oct 24, 4:24 AM
Thank you for the translations and songs. I liked the LiSA ending a lot. That takes the number of LiSA songs I like to two. She should sing some more slower, diverse songs. Her energetic ones get repetitive. That's why I much prefer Aimer to LiSA (Aimer not Amber; Amber is the name of my sister-in-law and I don't think she sings at all). Aimer has such a variety of songs to her name and she packs an immense amount of emotion in each.

Fruits Basket is tagged as a romance, but it's actually just a sub-plot in the story. It's actually quite similar in theme to Sangatsu no Lion (I can see you've given it a solid 10) because of its realistic, well-rounded characters, and its exploration of grief, neglect, and abuse. If you liked that show, Fruits Basket is more of the same.

The Publish or Perish mentality sounds interesting, care to explain what that's about in a nutshell?
