At the moment, about to record some Pokemon Showdown. Haven't decided if I want to commentate or not yet, but have wanted to get back into battling again :3

Foruming, watching Bayley's wrestling matches on Dailymotion (a perfect haven for WWE videos. YouTube is too much of a nazi with copyright...) and shopping online for Mai-HiME figures. There's one I've been wanting for a long time. Can't wait to reveal her. Shizuru Fujino

Congratulations! ヽ( ⌒ω⌒)人(=^‥^= )ノ

I'm trying to edit .jpeg artifacts out of some Mai-Otome manga scans so I can use them as avatars, despite complete lack of image-editing experience. Is this an artifact or a gradient-shading? Who knows.

I went outside today and stepped into a physical wall of heat. And bugs. Heat and bugs.

Goddamnit, summer... This is why I hate you! (╬⌐■益■)୨

Drinking tea and browsing for more trainee accountancy jobs that offer study support. Also taking some more screenshots from the second Mai-HiME episode.

Whining to myself about craving noodles and having no noodle-related supply chains. Why do I gotta live so far from the Deliveroo areas?

Break String SpinElf wrote:Ooh good! Another review coming up?
Hopefully! It just takes so long to translate my feelings into anything other than "oh my god, [thing] is so cool, I love it" for ~24 minutes per episode.

It's fun because I love the show so much, but man, is my default state inarticulate. ( ̄﹃ ̄)・゚✺

Don't worry about it. I usually spend ages working out what it is I feel, then, when I've gathered my thoughts & ideas, I plan to write them down.

Several months later and with most of my ideas forgotten, I'm still planning.

But, that way, at least I have an excuse to watch it again! Happy

Flicking through the Mai-HiME Destiny novels that arrived today, and saw this...



Well, hello, Kagutsuchi princess... ┬┴┤ʘ‿ʘ)╯



Also, I wish they'd settle on the kanji for Natsuki's surname. Is it 久我 or 玖我? And it looks like I'll have to find that website for Kyouto words out again...

How very Haruka-like! See:



These little omake comics are hilarious, even if the handwriting isn't.

Well, I was hoping to, actually! ヽ(*⌒▽⌒*)ノ That's why I bought them.

But, I struggle a little bit with translation, so it'd take me a while to do so. I like to try and get as close to the intended meaning as possible, which sucks when Japanese has a bunch of politeness forms or weird conjugations that just don't exist in English, and when, culturally, something which sounds mild when literally translated would be received as actually being very rude (and vice versa).

One example is... I remember my friend asking me about when Shizuru said 「うちのものにしてみます。」 after she went a little wild in HiME, because the translators chose "I'll make you mine", and I disagreed a little bit with the wording, because it sounds more forceful in English that it is in Japanese.

Only, I ended up having to consult another friend for my explanation, because I wasn't sure how to tell her just how mild 「〜して みる」 actually is. Thankfully, she was learning Spanish, so I ended up saying "it's the subjunctive mood", and she understood, but... I would have no idea how to translate that succinctly! (*/ω\)

"I'd very much like it if you considered being mine", I suppose, but. So many words, for something Japanese communicates in a mere 3.

Excellent stuff! Gotta say props to you for being literate in Japanese. It's said to be one of the hardest languages to get to grips with.

Ah yes, the good old subjunctive. I could use one if I chose to do so. But the context dictates that I end my nonsense now.

A shame! If the bun weren't volcanically hot, I might've joined you. (*´ー`)旦 旦( ̄ω ̄*)

Break String SpinElf wrote:Excellent stuff! Gotta say props to you for being literate in Japanese. It's said to be one of the hardest languages to get to grips with.
Honestly, if you have a dictionary to hand, it's not that hard, even given the amount of kanji. I find German a lot harder, honestly...  Especially with a lot of the auxiliary words, like "doch", "wirklich", etc. ( ̄△ ̄);;

Break String SpinElf wrote:Ah yes, the good old subjunctive. I could use one if I chose to do so. But the context dictates that I end my nonsense now.
You know... I had no idea about all of these grammatical terms until I studied Latin as part of my degree, and then I started getting interested in other languages' grammar from that!

And the only reason I remembered the subjunctive form in Latin was... Through this sentence: "oro ut tuas mamillas mihi demonstres".

Whatever works, hey? (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)ゞ
