NOT A GOOD VIEW OF DEM MARKERS.
Aww, how cute. That makes you look so cute. CUTEY CUTEY CUT- *me pukes at using cute so much*
Ace wanted to boost Whitebeard to the top. Too bad it never happened for the both of them,but Luffy will definitely succeed. Shounen rules, yo, like how it was a rule Luffy's hat from Shanks was Gol D. Rogers'. I think Luffy looked up to both people, Shanks and Ace, but he really felt like he had a friend with Ace. Flashback proves it.Quote:
She does look Russian, but I don't want my Robin to be a commie. T_T Nami's orange hair does give her that Irish look. Irish = ginger.
Tell me! TELL ME!
Learn it! Study it! I wanna master Australian accent as well.Quote:
What proposal? I see none.
Thank you. <3 You read all DC?
We do. MH is. c_k is the only opponent against unhealthy habits. D:
that's great to hear, is your teacher from Germany or did he live there for awhile?
Aside from that you should visit Frankfurt in summer, especially on a nice, sunny day summer's making everything more vivid here and there's a lot going on around that time!
well that was a long time ago, I think I liked the film but I'm not sure. Looks like I should watch it again, I'm curious now XD
no, you're not sappy it's good if you see it that way, the name sure is something special! My parents made a good choice so I'm happy and grateful for that. What's with your name, do you like it?
yeah he's good at cooking because he has high demands, he's like a little gourmet (in a positive and negative way) I'm not cooking because it's kind of boring and too time-consuming for me. I admire people who are able to cook well but it's not my thing. What about you?
yeah, maybe I prefer happy endings
Is there another story you liked? It hasn't to be a german lecture, I'm just curious if there are any interesting books you would recommend
I see, what impression did they leave on you? Do you like them?
Is there a reason why you're visiting your home country just all few years? Don't misunderstand me, it's just that all the people I know are visiting their home country at least one time a year. Sorry for all the questions, just say something if I'm too inquiring
japanese speech looks so complicated sometimes, what would you say? Is it easier or more difficult than english?Originally Posted by Asarii;2292118[b
Wie geht's? (How are you?)
Mir geht es gut (I'm feeling good/well)
Ich (I) bin (am) hungrig (hungry) or
Ich (I) habe (have) Hunger (hunger/appetite) [that would be the precise translation but the meaning is the same like above]
Was (what) möchtest (want) du (you) essen? (eat) [What do you want to eat?]
edit: just saw some spoiler pics, looks like they are really coming to support the Shimon Family, Deamon's plan failed d
well I'm not sure about Berserk, it's one of the best mangas out there but it's full of violence and nudity. Vinland Saga is absolutely great, I'm sure you will like it! Still you should read "Kimi ni Todoke" first, because I'm fangasming right now XD it's one of the best shojo's out there, you should definitely give it a try after you have finished with the other series you are planning to read (was it Toriko?)
Sure, I've already added you as my friend on MAL! I'm thinking about changing my name (it's a bit long xD), what do you think?
ah I see, that's quite interesting. Looks like you have thought a lot about your username or was it an spontaneous idea?

tooseriously) so I don’t remember the exact details of what Sasuke’s mother did. I want a confirmation though.
Is this better? It comes in a multitude of colours.
Speaking of cute, you should watch the series I’m currently featuring as the title of this thread. MLP is an awesome show that’s like Lisa Frank’s vomit… in a good way of course.
It’s a bit eerie considering how Ace and Whitebeard’s fall have led to a chaotic world order concerning pirates and the World Government. What I perhaps love the most about ONE PIECE is the political elements. Do you like the politics in the series as well?Quote:
Yes, I was basing it off of stereotypes. XD I like the combination of dark hair and light eyes in general so Robin’s character design is interesting for me.
You had three typos that I counted, but when I checked your post again it ~*mysteriously*~ got fixed.Quote:
You know how there are several sub-accents within an accent? In the US two examples are the Californian and the Southern accent… it would be really confusing if there were several subsets of Australian accents too! The Australian English spoken in Sydney is probably what we think of.Quote:

If you plan on purchasing DC, buy #24, 37, 38, 42, 46, 48 and 49. Those are the volumes I have that tie into the main storyline. The other volumes that deal with the Black Organization are 12, 18 and 35.
That’s actually kind of funny considering how the smoking emoticon was from that set.Quote:
You know what would be fun? Categorizing each mod according to tropes from TVTropes. I wonder if we have a yandere mod…
I’m happy that your parents let you make your own decision in the end! Parents can’t fathom the fact that their son or daughter has become an independent adult. It’s also a good thing you got rid of the habit you had class 10!Quote:
Sometimes it takes awhile to get used to the exercises. Hopefully we can both stop our procrastination eventually!Quote:
My teacher went to University of Freiburg according to my school’s website. While I searched for his name I came across this article about him. I wonder if you can read it! XD
Oh, I mistakenly thought that every place had Oktoberfest. It must be a huge celebration since it’s well known over here as well. I wish we could meet each other if we both decide to go!Quote:
The summer breaks are long so I would love to go to Frankfurt during that time! It sounds like fun, and of course, I can rely on you as a translator. Although I’ll try my best to learn German before I go.
You’re welcome! When I was younger a classmate called me the “bookworm” because I read a lot of books. XDQuote:
I’m glad you like your name, and I like mine too! Claire is gaining popularity with new parents recently, but among my age group I’m usually the only one in the class with that name.
It must have been tough for your cousin not to see his dad a lot at first so I’m glad your cousin and uncle are spending a lot of time together now.Quote:
I understand about if feeling odd. They’re not talking about you, but it still feels as if they’re talking about you because of the same name. Hopefully your uncle’s band mate will get the help and support that he needs.
Ooh, now I have more reasons to visit Frankfurt! I’m not a picky eater so I can try many new things such as the goose. What are your favourite and least favourite foods?Quote:
Sometimes I help out my mom when she cooks dinner. I agree with you about cooking can be time-consuming. When I’m hungry, I want to eat as soon as possible! XD
Next month my mom and brother are going to Japan for two and a half weeks so I’ll be alone in the house. During that time I’ll have to cook for myself. (My dad doesn’t live with us, but it’s okay since it only takes a couple of minutes to go to his house.)
There are a lot of courses I’m not taking. I make my own schedule and participate in the courses I want to take. Of course there are certain requirements that need to be set. Everyone needs a 100-level English course, but it doesn’t matter if you take English 124 or 110.Quote:
Ha ha. XD I read the Gudrun saga after the Nibelungenlied so that’s why it felt much better. After a violent story, it’s nice to have a light-hearted one.Quote:
A novel I really like is a book I read a while ago called, “The House of the Scorpion” by Nancy Farmer. I’m not sure if the book is available worldwide, but I highly recommend it if you do come across it. It’s a science-fiction story set in the future where the protagonist is a clone of a powerful drug lord.
I feel sorry for your uncle having to deal with the wife. Divorce is tricky, and I bet it’s even more tricky for him. I’m sure he can manage!Quote:
I imagined your cousin to be like Aki from flat. (← Shameless promotion if you haven’t read it!)Quote:
No worries about the questions! :3 I had fun playing with my cousins, and I liked them a lot. The oldest one (Yuna) acted really mature for her age and she would always scold her younger brother (Takeshi) who was full of energy. The youngest one who is Yuna and Takeshi’s cousin is named Lisa; she would always cry whenever her mother wasn’t around.
At the time I don’t think they knew I was related to them. Yuna was four years old in 2008 so it would have been hard for them to understand that I was “their mothers’ cousins’ daughter”. Now that they’re older (Yuna = 7, Takeshi = 5 and Lisa = 3) it would be easier.
The reason why I don’t go to Japan that often is money. It’s expensive to buy tickets every year during the winter and summer holidays when a lot of people will go abroad too. Now that I have school I also can’t afford to miss even a day of classes. If money wasn’t a problem, I would be going to Japan every year!
Yup! I don’t want to say something bad or embarrassing. XD Your English is fine to me though. How long have you been learning it?Quote:
Korean and Japanese are pretty close, but Japanese is still different. I think it’s because the country is an island so it’s pretty isolated. English is much easier! I consider English to be the easiest language of all the languages. 8D

Even I don’t understand the tax myself, and I live here! (Bad British Columbian.) In the long term new roads and schools could be built with taxes, but of course the price turns out more expensive than what we wished for! A 16% tax seems like a lot already so it’s good that it’s back to normal after being raised.Quote:
I’m surprised you don’t like California rolls! I’ll have to ask my mom for the names of the other sushi you didn’t like since I don’t know what they’re called myself. I only like octopus when it’s fried so I don’t like it when it’s in sushi form. I also don’t like sea urchin as well.Quote:
I consider Yamamoto to be the perfect son so Tsuyoshi is really lucky. I wonder what happened to his mother.Quote:
It’s a good thing I decided to check the spoilers myself before reading your post! Usually I avoid them so I wasn’t spoiled. :3
Daemon is one of the most interesting villain I’ve seen in a while. He fits the typical bad guy role, but what’s different about him is the fact that he wants to make the protagonist’s organization stronger instead of destroying it. (Byakuran wanted to destroy Vongola.) I love the Primo family in general so I’m pretty excited about the turn of events.
Me too! It’s great how a community and friendship can be formed because of it.Quote:
I’m scared of anything graphic (like blood and nudity) so I’ll lay off Berserk for now. However, I’ll add Vinland Saga to the reading list. (: I don’t know if it was because of Valentine’s Day or not, but Kimi ni Todoke is definitely gaining popularity recently! I was already planning to read it so it’s great you’re enjoying it. I can’t wait to discuss KnT with you after I’m caught up with Toriko (you were right!) and Beelzebub.
You also added Sal! I’m not sure what kind of names you prefer but if you want a shorter name, perhaps something with a single word. You can also choose it like me: a name that relates to your favourite series (whether it’s Naruto or Vinyard Saga) but making the connection subtle. (That is, it’ll require a bit of thinking to get it.)
I decided to take a break because back then I thought it was better to read many chapters at once rather than reading it weekly. However the weeks turned to months, which turned to a year! I’m glad I’m back.Quote:
My username was chosen after thinking about it for quite some time. I wanted a name I can use on any site I go to. It’s a hassle to have one name for one place and then another for a different site.
Thank you for taking time to reply as well! It’s amazing how we’re learning a lot about each other, and this all started with a hello from you!Quote:
I thought we didn’t have a Q&A section for members, but it turns out we do. It’s up to you if you want to make a thread of your own.
Thanks. <3 I haven't seen that before, then. And it looks like it does. You ever gonna buy that for artistic reasons? Ever thought about getting a tattoo? If so, what would you want?
Eww, show. And who is Lisa Frank? Is she related to Anne Frank?
Political elements? It's just mostly WG wanting to eradicate pirates and the Four Emperors wanting to keep things good and dandy. It was cool how Shanks saved Coby, amirite? The political elements are interesting though, with the relationship of the Emperors, WG, and the Tenryuubitos. Some WG do respect some pirates though, like how Akainu/Sengoku respected Shanks and his wishes.Quote:
Not to mention, Nami can handle her drinks. D: Robin's hair in anime look shiny though, looks cool, no?
What was it? And it must be mysterious cuz I don't remember editing my posts to fix the typos... methinks. O_o
I think there could be, but America is bigger than Australia, is it not? And the regions were different, North vs. South.Quote:
the anime has fillers though, no? I remember seeing an episode where all three main characters were at a house, and Conan and Ran and cellphone... never mind, I don't remember it much, but I do remember thinking "NOT CANON."
What about the chapters? My bookstores dropped most chapters of DC for some reason. I'll access chapterz onlinez.
Evil people are evil. D:Quote:
What? Why? What's yandere? I have lots of questions now.
Too lazy to delete the last quote and am hoping it is not in reply to me.
I heard Copics were expensive so most likely not. If I was an art student I might.
You're not a real man unless you watch that show. How come you never use Google? I found all these by searching "Lisa Frank".
Polar bear with toucans (?)
Oh but it's still.... kinda... political. I'll have to immerse myself in the ONE PIECE wiki again to tell you what I mean by it. There's the Yonkou resembling the Balance of Power as you said, and I'm sure there were other aspects too. Damn, should have kept notes while I was reading!Quote:
I forgot what Oda said, but Nami is a true Irishwomen! Robin's hair has a kind of a bluish tint. At 6'2" she's REALLY tall.
Really? When I checked back the typos were gone so I thought you fixed it. Dun, dun, duuuunnn!!!
That's true; America is bigger than Australia. You know what's bigger? Canada and also Russia.Quote:
The anime does have fillers but who cares! As long as the story/mystery is good, it shouldn't matter if it was within the continuity of the manga or not.
I don't know about the chapters. D: I'm also too lazy to check.
You can't spell live without evil.Quote:
Any ideas of who fits that description?Originally Posted by TVTropes
Love ya boo.
Watching something = enjoying it, not thinking it. You're not in English class for mike's sake! Don't analyze everything! D: Unless it's sex.
Oh, k. Makes sense if they're used by mangakas.
My chest hair indicates I'm a real man thank you very much. And I don't like Google, and it's too much work.Quote:
And now, I'm glad I didn't google Lisa Frank. <_< Her works are too bright and cheery and preppy. -.- Why ask me about her?
It is political in some areas. Marines and Shichibukai exist to keep pirates and Yonkou in line, as well as other stuff. Reread and take notes!Quote:
She is! Orange hair, violent, and able to handle alcohol! \o/ Dat's sexy. One part of her that's not Irish is she's smart. YOHOHOHO. I like her tintish blue hair, and she is pretty tall. o.o Probably ate a lot of Kix as a runaway, eh? EH? EH? EEEEEEEEEH?
If you saw it, that means it was more than a minute since I made the post. If you saw it again and saw no typo or me saying I edited it, then that's weird. Oh well, I'm awesome, so that explains how the typos disa- OMFG, GHOST! GHOST! GHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST!!! SLHG:SDGHdlsghqsdlghsdl; RUN!Quote:
Canada is America's hat, of course it needs to be bigger. Russia is just cheat.
It shouldn't, but some fillers are horrible. "Home is where you feel good! HOME IS WHERE YOU FELE SPECIAL! SLALALLALALALALALA" D: NOOOO, I want badassedness, not homeassedness. D:
Stop being lazy, smellybutt.
You can, actually. "leev."Quote:
Dunno, tbh. Kait? :|
Love ya too, honeybuns. My bed or yours tonight?
FOR CUDDLE, FOR CUDDLE
Is there a language course going on here? I wanna join in...as teacher of course
What do I have to do to get extra credits?
Thinking about a series and understanding what's beyond the surface is more fulfilling. Knowing the whole picture is perhaps more enjoyable.

I really want to reread the Sabaody arc. Yes, I'm still hyped up over that.Quote:
I wonder what the average height is for OP humans. Hancock is 6'3" and even for a guy that's tall. It's probably their food perhaps?
OMG GHOST... WHERE?? You mean GHOSTIE???Quote:
America is Canada's pants. Florida is the.... yeah.
It's unfortunate you haven't come across good fillers during your anime esapade. The Naruto ones are so bad it's good.
You sir, should take advantage of the Internet. >:[
That's not a word though!!Quote:
Ha ha, maybe. XD
Yes it is. It's why I enjoyed manga like Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and etc. Naruto himself wasn't Goku, at all. He was like Edward Elric, more complex and smarter than what he let on and what we saw. What motivated them was interesting to see. It wasn't just about getting stronger or saving people, but it was something more, like their ideals, goals, and etc.
They don't have much hair though, I do. What do you mean on the ins- oh. OH. You pervert! You've been hanging around me too much, not that I mind.
Firefox has that as well. I took it out since I rarely use it or care about it. Sari: 0, Milly: 9000Quote:
Reread it, then! What's stopping you? And what makes you hyped over that arc?
I think the average height is 6'0 for females and 6'5 for males. I still feel like I'm underexaggerating..... I think they use growth hormones.
NO! GHOST! BOO GHOST, NOT DANCING GHOSTIE! D:Quote:
No, America is the head, the brains, and Canada is the hat. D: Get it right, pilgrim. *smokes cigarette John Wayne style*
I think Yu Yu Hakusho could be considered good fillers. Not sure about FMA.
I do. For pics of hot women.
It can be! IT CAN BE!
He is. I know I'm not.Quote:
Spot on! Naruto is fascinating as a character. I'll like to look back on the series someday to see just how much he changed. If you have lots of time (and I mean it) I recommend this old but nifty essay describing the structure of Naruto.
LOL! Stop touching my legs.
Well then, I think it's about time you added it so I don't have to search for you every time. You know what I could have been doing with the ten seconds I spend Googling? D:Quote:
Maybe after I get caught up with the series I'm reading right now. What I loved about the arc was
Lawall the characters that were introduced. Also the fact that we saw just how asshole-y pirates could be by having a slave shop.
What about Mexico?
Hmm, I haven't watched FMA to give an opinion. What was the first anime you saw?
Hurr, of course.
YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!
Oh really? I might have to find a Trope for you then.Quote:

Naruto really has grown and changed. He was a constant joker, but nowadays he can be serious and smart. We also saw glimpses into his intelligence out of battle, like when he spotted Rock Lee's hands after Lee and Guy left with the turtle. One of the best thing is seeing Naruto mature and learn new things.
And I shall try to read that whenever I get time.
I was touching your knee since it's safer and SFW kind of stuff. v.v Plus, I'm required to seeing as we're paired together and I'm considered the extrovert. D: Plus, since we're paired, we can touch each other.
Screw it, I hate Google. Um, you could have been rolling your own joint and getting ready to smoke it? It'd make sense. :|Quote:
It was horrible to see how they treated others, and it was so awesome to see Luffy punch that douchebag... he deserved it. You think Oda's trying to represent real life with this?
I think Dragon Ball Z, if you don't count Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon as anime. If you do, then I don't know which one. X_x You?
I know, right?
CAN WE DO IT?! YES WE CAN! MONKEYBUTT! YOHOHOH!
What trope? :|
YOHOHOHO! Cuddling while tired is even better! \o/
