    The ratfox thread

    Huh? Translators are supposed to have a thread? Okay... Here is one.
    Post your questions, and I'll answer... When I have the time... And I don't forget...
    And I remember to look up this thread... You get the idea

    Are you a guy or gal? (No offense, always been curious...)

    How did you learn Japanese?

    Where are you from?

    Is Naruto your favorite manga?

    Re: The ratfox thread


    I'm a guy. Disappointed?

    I've been learning Japanese pretty much on my own for five years,
    with a self-help book, a dictionary, and by reading hundreds
    of manga in japanese. I'm also taking courses since last year.
    I've been in Japan only once, last year, for three weeks, but
    I plan on going there next year again

    I'm from Lausanne, Switzerland.

    Naruto is perhaps not my favorite manga, but it is the one I follow
    the most attentively. My favorite manga would be something from
    Adachi Mitsuru or Takahashi Rumiko... I've been a Ranma addict
    for many years.

    Awesome - wow, how do you get your manga in japanese? Via e-bay? How did you get to go to Japan? Do you have family there?

    Cool! How many languages do you know, then?

    Ahh, I read Ranma 1/2 too. It's great. I'm only on the first 12 volumes though I think, planning to read more, though. That explains your panda avatar over at NF though =D

    I bought most of my manga on amazon.co.jp... Unless it's very old, they have everything.
    They also charge a fixed price for delivery, so you can order 200+ mangas cheap.

    I went to Japan with a few guys who are also hooked on anime. They have been going there
    every two years for like 10 years

    Well: Only english and french
    Less well: Japanese and german

    I'm supposed to have learnt german in school, but...

    1. Favorite is... Naruto I guess. I like Shikamaru too, but for different reason. and Kakashi is the coolest, of course
    2. Ninjutsu. Something like Sai, but with music instead of drawings
    3. Role-playing-games, music and martial arts. Less and less martial arts, I don't have the time any more.
    4. The martial arts, and the manga. Also, I think kanji look cool
    5. Lots of everything! Especially rice dishes. And italian food. And chinese food, and japanese food, and... lots of everything!

    Judo, Karate and Capoeira.
    I've got a black belt in Judo and a brown one in Karate.
    I haven't done much in Capoeira. I guess I wasn't much suited to it.

    Why didn't you try taekwondo? I think it's sorta cooler than karate.

    Re: The ratfox thread

    I've had Tae-Kwon-Do (ITF) and it's a major brain washing! Everyday you are told how much Karate sucks and how stupid their moves and training methods are!! In the Tae-Kwon-Do (ITF) universe all martial arts are equal except for Karate and Tae-Kwon-Do (WTF)!!

    @ ratfox --> I envy you for having at least tried three martial arts! In Tae-Kwon-Do I quit at half-red (half-brown in Karate) because I couldn't stand my sensei (and couldn't kick his lame ass either). You see, he hit on a high school girl (he even entered the sauna when she was inside) and was generally vulgar. He could beat any of his apprentices to a pulp because of his experience and trained reflexes, other than that his technique wasn't much... I'd like to try Ninpo (having read a book on Ninpo history by Shoto Tanemura, presumably the last ninja), as well as Aikido (again, having read a compilation of Morihei Ueashiba's sayings, and a book or two on Ki).

    What do you think?

    Re: The ratfox thread

    Replying every week... sigh.

    I guess Tae Kwon Do does look cool, unfortunately, I prefered the teaching style of the karate instructor.
    Anyway, I did Capoeira because it looked cool, and I never got really far...
    I've heard lots and lots of discussion on whether this was better or that, and in the end,
    everybody likes something different. Usually, it's more important to have a teacher you like than
    having this certain martial art, because if you quit after a few months it won't be useful

    I even heard somebody saying once, "kyokushinkai karate is better, because it has lots of
    turning kicks, and that's more efficient when you're fighting mutiple opponents".
    Perhaps he should have tried kage bunshin

    Don't worry about taking a while to reply, Ratfox. ^_^

    But I do have a related question to that. How's life going for you? Busy?
