Ah, I didn't even think of the visual novel! I'll look for that then. Only real Fate stuff I've seen is a bit of the manga, which I was lukewarm on (lousy translation, I think?) but I liked the characters. Have barely had time to watch anime lately (college finals -_-) but the Fate series is next on my list. Thanks a lot for the recommendation, much appreciated! :)

Hey, been meaning to ask a friend about Fate/Zero, since that's been high on my list to watch... Is it helpful to watch F/SN first before Zero? I'd heard less than stellar things about that one so I'd hoped to avoid it... though I now see there's Unlimited Blade Works. Is that a bit better of a starting off point, in your opinion?

Hmm I guess I just happens to like exactly what P.A. Works does. Coming of age stories, realistic setting, relatable drama, Beautiful scenery and cute girls. I find myself to be immersed quite easier in P.A. Works' anime and in consequence, I enjoy them a lot more. They work so well with me that I sometimes don't realize that it's an anime that I'm watching.
Hrybami Oct 30, 8:50 AM
Oh so you try to put anime with as much different genre as possible in your favourite. That's a good idea.

Oh I see haha. Maybe they're just hoping that people will catch on to when it's used as "wa"...I think it's only when it's a subject marker. I've just been testing out of all the duolingo stuff so I don't actually know how they're teaching lol

Well I was too embarrassed to tell them that I didn't know Norwegian and I didn't look particularly foreign to them. They probably would've used English if I'd managed to ask.. Well one time I tried but the lady just repeated what she'd said still in Norwegian and we just all awkwardly laughed and she laughed along probably cause she didn't understand why we were laughing. The time I really freaked someone out was when I bought something, I was told later the worker asked if I wanted a bag. I just stared at her for a minute and then grabbed the thing I'd bought and started walking away. I didn't see the look she gave my boyfriend but he said she looked pretty freaked out so...

It was definitely one of THE magical girl animes of those few years... sadly I never could find any really good cosplay of anybody :/

I don't know that there is an explanation. I mean... I never got one. It's just something that you have to know and get used to. And then it just becomes obvious. Although when everything is written in hiragana it becomes a little less obvious since it can be hard to tell when words begin and end. I imagine it's something that stuck around from the old language. There's probably only a few people, if any, who would know.

I'm not sure what you mean by together. It might be easier to mix the two up if you learned them both at the same time, especially because some of them are the same. I think the most common way is to take it line by line in hiragana and then go and do the katakana is the same way. Then you can just learn kanji as you please, since hardly anyone learns them in the same order. A lot of people try to make pictures with the kana and match the picture to something with the sound of the character. The only ones I remember off the top of my head are "sa" and "ne" in hiragana and "ma" and "ho" in katakana though. You can do it with kanji too, but it's harder.

My boyfriend is Norwegian so I thought I might try to pick some of the language up just in case. I already went there once and freaked out some people working. The goal is to not do that again haha. I find learning languages fun anyway so it just gave me a reason to pick one. Spanish however is awful. I will never want to learn it.

The show is very cheesy. I never got to actually watch it all until recently but I read it in 2006 or something. Super cheesy but so fun. Wouldn't recommend unless you're just really feeling the magical girl stuff though. There's a lot of use of "nyan" so... it can get a little unbearable haha.

Alright! Thanks for dropping by. :)

Sounds fancy. We only had Spanish and Latin. There had been French before I got there but the Spanish teachers ran off the one and only French teacher.

I'm not really studying Japanese online. Duolingo just added a Japanese course and I've been going through it to see what it's like. I don't think it's the best, but I think it would probably work for someone trying to learn the basics. I studied in university and in Japan so I've still got books from that plus a couple extra I picked up in Japan. I am studying Norwegian online through Duolingo and that's proving to be a bit of a challenge because I'm not getting much speaking and listening practice. But I plan on working on it soon.

I think the groups that sub the shows right after they air tend to have quite a few mistakes, but that tends to be the nature of getting things done quickly but that's what the people want these days.

It was Mew Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew. As you might be able to see, it's still what I use as my username for most things. lol

That setting and genre mix sounds quite promising! Bayern has some places that are easy to recognize (at least for local residents) such as the Bodensee (a lake), Schloss Neuschwanstein (castle) and several old and famous buildings in and around Augsburg & Munich (Fuggerei, Brechthaus, ...); it would be really cool if some scenes in Monster would take place in those areas^^. I'll definitively keep the anime in mind and add it to my PTW list for now.

Thanks for the recommendation :)
mewichigo21794 Oct 27, 7:06 PM
I think there is potential, as long as they can manage to get a lot of other people to voice things. I'm sure it won't happen because that will cost them something they don't want to have to pay (you know... like anything really haha) Of course even if they did, it would only go so far. We would never be able to fully dub the music/idol anime... but it would be interesting if we tried!

Your high school actually offered Japanese? Mine offered it online, but it was an extra fee (and it was already a private school so my parents said they weren't going to pay extra money). But I would've jumped on it if I could have, though now I realize that learning online by yourself isn't the best either. You miss out on a lot of practice :/ I had to take Latin... none of which I remember. So you could always still pick up Japanese and get to a conversational level! Never too late :D

Mistakes and italics aren't even the worst. They're fading now, and I'm not sure if you've ever seen anything that had them, but the "Translators Notes" were the worst. You get your subs, and a wall of text explaining what they wrote in the subs. If anything is really distracting from watching it was those! Sometimes I could let it slide, back then not as many people had general knowledge of different festivals and what not... but the "onee-chan means big sister" always got me. They make great memes now though I guess.

We're all our own special brand of weird man don't worry about it :P
I do love a good cute female character. I usually just end up wishing I could look as cute as them and have their wardrobe and what not. Also a huge fan of the school uniforms. Creepy as I feel saying that. But instead of really having feelings towards them, I'd just rather steal some cuteness from them. Back in middle school though I did get a little too obsessed with one particular character though. I was convinced if I tried hard enough I could be her. That was the creepiest I've ever been I think. I shudder just remembering it. But at least I don't want to sleep with them right? ^^"

Hello :) you're welcome! I love how you and some others in that thread managed to write reasonable and helpful replies. A few people though... just acted like toxic fanboys/girls imo and I didn't want to just ignore this^^'

Yes, I'm from Bayern :D (Bavaria in english...?). Is Monster a good show? I haven't watched it yet. I just saw that the character list is full of german names haha :3
KawaiiSlowpoke Oct 27, 12:48 AM
Ehh I think the other title fits better tbh

Probably will make sense later in anime
KawaiiSlowpoke Oct 26, 4:11 PM
Well looking at the anime, the title still fits it
