What anime you watching?
Indeed no one would have guessed such an outcome at the start of the season XD
I dropped Karneval, just too boring.
Indeed. If I had made a bet at the start of the CL season I'd be rich by now...Quote:
Um es mit den Worten einiger älterer Studenten zu sagen: Du hast von Allem etwas Ahnung aber von keiner Sache so richtig.Quote:
Man kann quasi alles machen auf was man Bock hat. Von einem Job beim Fernsehen bis hin zu einer leitenden Position in irgendeinem Unternehmen. Medienwirtschaft ist ja sowieso ein halbes BWL/VWL Studium.
I could only bet ~10€ per month... I'm broke.
I am fond of it. I'm not 100% sure what I will do later so it's good to have a lot of options.Quote:
I just hate our law faculty.
If you can, you should definitely take this opportunity to convert some Euros to Yen since the latter is weak at the moment. (1 euro = 130 yen) Even though you may not go to Japan right away, at least you'll have a handful of Japanese money for later. I had to convert some yens to euros for this trip, and I was sad that it didn't amount to much.
I talked to my mom since she knows more than me, and she said that she recommends going to Japan in autumn (October/November) or spring (May). She also referred to this website for more info: http://www.gotokyo.org/index.htmlQuote:
Here's what I know: the average manga tankobon for a weekly manga costs 320 yen while a weekly magazine is around 280 yen. (I'm sorry I can only do the calculations in yen.) DVDs are expensive since they're on average 3000 yen or so with very few extra features. CDs are expensive too. I wouldn't recommend getting them unless you really love the series or the artist. If you go to second hand bookstores like BOOK OFF, the price will be much cheaper. Perhaps you can make a list of what you want to buy in Japan, and I will try my best to see how much those would cost all together. Of course we'll have to add 10000 yen or so on top of that sum just in case you want to indulge a little more.
If you don't want to cook and want cheap food, you can check out 7-11. Their bentos are under 500 yen while their rice balls are no more than 200 yen.
You should! FYI generally most shows for "grown ups" (i.e. not Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh) happen to be broadcast late in the night like 1AM. Perhaps that's the reason why the Western fandom knows more about anime than the average Japanese person. XDQuote:
Japanese variety shows are ridiculous and funny so I also recommend watching those even if they're not anime.
It would be interesting if there was a place in Germany that shared a name with a Canadian city.Quote:
BTW four of my classmates are part German: two have German mothers, and the other two have German fathers (or have German ancestry) judging from their last names.
I went to a lecture, and the professor was talking about von Kleist. I didn't catch what he was saying, but I got the idea of what the lecture was about.Quote:
Japanese students learn American English, and it makes sense for Europeans to study British English since it's closer. Sometimes I, as a native speaker, don't understand what the Game of Thrones characters are saying either so it's definitely okay if you don't understand. LOL For example the wildlings have a Scottish accent, and IMO that's one accent where I have to listen really carefully in order to get what the speaker is saying. Some American English accents such as those from the South can be really hard to understand too.Quote:
Now that you think about it, I'd pronounce thought and ought the same way too. I think it all depends on the English accent though. Now that we're talking about accents, I wonder if you'd be able to understand me if we meet. :3Quote:
I know that the German language has many different dialects, but do you speak differently from other German speakers such as those from Berlin or München? How different is Austrian and Swiss German from German German?
That's true. My Japanese is nowhere near the level of a native speaker either.Quote:
Hopefully by the end of this trip, I'll be able to improve my pronunciation and catch individual words at least. I have TV in my apartment so I turn it on to practice my listening.
I remember too! I can't believe it's been a while ago now. Since I was kind of new myself, I felt flattered that you decided to drop by.Quote:
I think you've become more outgoing ever since you became a mod. It's a good thing, and now I'm wondering what you're like in real life since we might actually meet face to face! Are you the social type or are you more introverted and shy?
That's how my life is. Basically, there is no break, lol.
How was Berlin?
You are a better Renekton than the last time we played. I could notice that
I caught up
To freaking fast, fk!!!
Awww, I'm feeling with you my hard-working daughter

Will answer the rest later or tomorrow, not enough time atm
I was actually coming to spam your place now and you tell me you don't have time?
BTW started watching Shingeki (3 episodes so far) and caught up with the manga. I just hate the fact that is monthly :/
PS. Runes are a big deal
And yeah, the monthly issue really turns me off... It's kind of sad as you plow through the chapter rather quickly. Having enjoyed the story it'll suck dry balls to have to wait a whole month for every issue. It's more bearable with weekly series. It's why I've stopped reading all the monthly series I used to follow. Thankfully FMA ended long ago, but that's likely the only exception I would have kept until now.
niichan I will answer you later. Don't go all QQ on me.
I read the manga way before the anime started, and even though i was interested by the story, just like you monthly issue turns me off a lot. That's why i am normally behind in chapters. And i tend to forget a lot of stuff, and nowadays i barely remember some parts, but i guess the anime will help on that.
The anime seems to be awesomely done so far!
@niichan: I really like the concept, like I've mentioned before. The art style in the manga is really rough, to put it that way, and I find it great and fitting of the series. It's quite unique, and it's very effective for displaying the grim nature in the series, and the creepiness of the titans. A really enjoyable read. I sat up very late the first night when I started reading the manga after watching episode 5 after midnight. It's kind of sad how quickly you plow through the chapters however.
Regarding the plot twists. I'll just comment the recent one:
