Hello again Katherine!

Ah yes! German, that's the language my semitomboyish girlfriend knows. She told me that this Lindbergh manga is difficult to get into because it requires that language or Japanese. We definitely have better chances of discussing Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin than Lindbergh. Older manga that many people know also.

Speaking of Japanese, I'm on a roll thanks to Pokémon Database (letting me borrow its plethora of traditional Chinese characters so I could translate them on Nihongodera). So yes, I'll definitely enjoy Silent Möbius QD even more and I thought about finishing it after playing Grandia HD.

Most dubs in the 90s were mediocre, I agree. Like 4Kids lazily giving synonyms of some Japanese food instead of respecting the cuisine (or terminology) plus the ADR company being unable to pronounce common Japanese names like Sakura (everyone knows that it's pronounced sah-koo-rah; it's the basics of the basics). Good thing they went defunct after getting sued so many times and then outclassed by better dubbers. Like the ones that dubbed Twilight Venom (I don't think that I'll hear another voice like that of Mirabelle again).

As for the Tsukihime reboot, I'm still waiting for it. Hopefully it'll get another announcement after I finish playing Grandia (good thing the HD version lets me hear Japanese voices like Valkyria Chronicles; I love Atsuko Tanaka).

Anyway milady, I hope that your German will be 200% fluent. My girlfriend who was an honors student mastered it and didn't have to take any remedial classes after graduation.

I don't really agree with some European saying that German is that hard and good amounts of critical thinking helps reduce the chances of taking remedial classes.

No prob kanon-chan. I'm glad to hear that! I hope the best awaits for you in 2024. So far, the holiday season was nice and it was a GREAT improvement from last year. Any plans?
Ouji_Kurai Jan 2, 10:49 AM
Hey kanon-chan! I sincerely hope that you had a good happy new years and an awesome 2024! How are you doing?
Ouji_Kurai Nov 12, 2023 8:01 PM
I am really glad. In fact, I'm glad to know that even after a decade, we are talking once again.

I can't blame you. MAL has changed over the last few years and I find myself doing the same thing. It's still useful for wanting to talk to people and create a social sphere, but it's a far cry from its old, glorious days. Nice! Aside from Tumblr, what else are you on?

For me, well… It's been a decade and a HUGE chunk of my life has changed. In fact, so much that it resembles nothing from the past whatsoever. Simply put, adult life for me over the past 7 years.
Ouji_Kurai Nov 12, 2023 5:50 PM
Hey Kanon-chan! First, I want to say this to you. It's COMPLETELY okay if you don't even know who I am. It's been 11 years since we have last spoken to each other. I used to go by the name of EXSphere, and we used to talk for a little in 2012. So much time has passed, and, well, the truth is, It's a pleasure to talk to you again. Otherwise, it's nice to meet you, and as usual, your favorites list is still rocking. How has it been?
Kurt_Irving Nov 1, 2023 4:56 PM
Thanks for responding Kanon-san!

I'm re-reading Silent Möbius chapter 17 or volume 9 as while picking up more Japanese vocabulary. Volume 9 is pretty much where the late 90s adaptation stopped.

The anime lied to me about Lum Chang's debut appearance, but that's a minor problem I have with said adaptation.

With that said, only three more volumes to go before reading the sequel QD. Came out 10 years ago and nobody told me.

As for Japanese, I'll definitely use it to import anime, manga or Japanese media directly from Japan. Everyone knows that Crummyroll could never support the anime industry on behalf of customers. They copied fansubs and stole money from studios. Their parent company Sony doesn't even care about Japanese media.

On the bright side, I thank Instant Japanese for helping me learn the language on behalf of a real sensei or Boyé Lafayette de Mente. Yes, he passed away, but that book will carry on his teaching spirit.

Happy Halloween!

You came back sooner than expected, but yes, I'm still trying to improve my penmanship for both kanji and hiragana. Learning how to write either set of characters beautifully as arduously as possible. At least writing kanji on flash cards is easier than on notebook.

Once I learn enough jōyō kanji, then I'll re-read Silent Möbius which I could only find in Japanese. I also want to master Japanese for Sakura Wars 1-4.

The other day, someone mentioned that Pluto having an adaptation in the near future. Then I found out that it's to be adapted by Netflix and so I decided to read that source material instead after having read Suikoden III (I don't trust Hollywood, nor do I trust big tech and I won't pay for streaming anymore).

Speaking of Suikoden, it's the most underrated game franchise ever. Like Chinese folklore that the franchise was loosely based on, it tells stories about war. Implying that those with power seek to abuse it.
Kurt_Irving Sep 24, 2023 11:42 PM
With that said milady, I've been studying Japanese arduously all summer long. Mr. Boyé de Mente's Instant Japanese book is very convincing. Even after all these years.

Now I'm practicing jōyō kanji. Trying to memorize around 1,006 Chinese characters after learning kanas and everyday Japanese grammar.
Kurt_Irving May 8, 2023 12:39 AM
Yes and I'm thinking of drawing one of those very colorful pages from Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin.

My main girl told me that she loved Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's character designs. In both that 2001 manga and Venus Wars.

Ah yes!! Venus Wars, a sci-fi world where Earth's evil twin sister is terraformed, but living in Trappist 1E would make more sense where it won't ever get consumed by a red giant. Superearths may be habitatable, but are bad for birds because of strong Jupiter-like gravity and people would have to be in constant tip-top shape to endure that powerful gravitational pull.

I'm also thinking of reading Banana Fish and I heard that the anime's setting is weird. Banana Fish is supposed to take place in the 80s where flip phones and smartphones didn't exist.

As for FF7R, I'm glad that Maaya Sakamoto and her husband are still into acting together. No way would I want Maaya Sakamoto's old roles to be taken over by someone else.

I'm still waiting for the new Space Battleship Yamato movie following that Xebec remake that I heard about from ANN. Might as well watch the old ones for now.

I just remembered that Aya Hisakawa was Sailor Mercury, but other than that, I hope that you are having a wonderful spring.

As for manga, I've been reading Digimon V-Tamers after Sorcerer Hunters. Yes, I like alternate universe stories sometimes.

Anime and manga aside, I've been writing with my left hand a lot. I also drew Lacus with Cagalli for my main girl from North Carolina (who was there for me when my original girlfriend had to become Amish).

My main girl told me that she wrote her Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga review ages ago.

Anyway! I see how much manga I'll read until a future Macross movie finally gets its release date.
Kurt_Irving Feb 28, 2023 6:48 PM
You're welcome and as for the new Trigun, I'm glad at least that the studio featured characters from the Maximum series.

Not a big fan of the artwork, but I'll watch it some time. I used to want Trigun Maximum to be adapted into movies with Badlands Rumble's style of animation.

RIP to Hiromi Tsuru by the way. I also wonder why Aya Hisakawa didn't reprise her role as Rem (has an oddly similar personality to my first girlfriend). Maaya Sakamoto is a good choice though.
Kurt_Irving Feb 27, 2023 1:33 PM
Hey Kanon! Happy Birthday!

As for manga, I can't wait to read Sorcerer Hunters so I could get to know some characters a lady with an Asian husband likes. Characters that never appeared in the 1995 anime.
