Any question?

501 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-02-06 13:19 ID:DWBcpkY9

I don't think it's a compound, it's really just 'poten'. First I thought it's short for 'potential' or 'potency', but it must be smth else. Seem's there is a ポテン・ヒット in baseball, but I don't really understand what it is and where it comes from.

What does it say?


507 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-03-16 23:41 ID:v3WNPtih

Because the resolution of the image is low, it seems "ベータ" or "ベーク".
I don't know what is "ベーク".
Perhaps, "あんかー" means anchor and "ベータ" means beta.
"あんかーベークだっけ?" = Is it anchor beta ?
Hmm…I don't understand only from these sentences.

508 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-03-17 03:23 ID:LxX+UxkA

Ah yes, it could be "beta".
It's a story about "alpha waves", so it could be a comment about beta waves.
Maybe "あんふー ベータ だっけ?"...

509 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-03-18 00:06 ID:v3WNPtih

I have understood somehow.
That sentence may be "あんれーベータだっけ?".
=あれ? Is it bata wave?
(sorry, I don't have idea to translate "あれ?")

I think, the author warns that the written content about brain wave is not necessarily accurate.
He(She) might want the reader to enjoy it only as a fiction.

It looks like someone ordered something at the McDonald's drive through, waited for them to finish cooking it, and then drove off without taking it or paying for it. Then they uploaded it to Youtube, and a bunch of people on the internet saw it and got angry. The segment seemed to be as much about the online response as it was about the video itself.

How do I say in a similar manner that a piece of music「title」 will be played/performed?
「title」 = name of the album, but the fact that it's an album doesn't have to be mentioned unless it's necessary.
I would only like to replace from the above sentence the fact that a movie will be screened into-> 「title」 (music album) will be played.

Thanks in advance! :)

It looks like 這, but it has a different radical.
Does it have another meaning?

516 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-06-05 22:10 ID:DnW3Wq7+

It is the same character as "這".

I have a problem with this sentence:

a yakuza in "onimushanokouji" style? What is it?
Is there some connection with the writer 武者小路実篤 (Mushanokouji Saneatsu)?

Thank you!

525 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-06-23 15:51 ID:Heaven

I have never heard "onimushanokouji-kei yakuza".
I googled it. you are watching "hayate no gotoku", aren't you?
It is name of fictional yakuza family.

In nonfiction, there are many yakuza families in Japan.
"yamaguchi-gumi kei" "sumiyoshi-kai kei" ,and so on...
"kei(系列)" means a group of closely related companies.
Hayate's author may be inspired by Saneatsu.

526 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-06-23 16:02 ID:zCtP5+ls

Yeah, I was reading Hayate!
So you say it's the name of the family? I didn't thought of that ipothesys, since they were using 系 and not 家...

Well, thank you for the answer! ^^

527 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-06-23 16:39 ID:Heaven

My pleasure.
Organization of Japanese Yakuza is complex.
It looks like a huge corporation.

For example,
Many secondary families belong to Yamaguchi gumi.

In this case, "kei" don't mean "style" like "shibuya-kei" "akiba-kei"

It is two or three voices.

532 名前: 529 : 2010-08-07 04:15 ID:Heaven

It's okay, I've figured it out. 「侍て」 looks very similar to 「待て」 in writing, so it is used for pun effect in this way.

You come to see me again?
I don't want to return to the world where I used to be.
So, just leave me alone.
No way! Dying from a disease is the last thing I would ever hope for.
But, imagining myself aging to death even drives me madder.

I think the translator made a good job in fansubbing the video overall, but there is a misunderstood line in it as far as I've found out.

2:50 it's not a very amusing song.->it's a very amusing song, isn't it?

It is an ambiguous sentence where meanings depend on the stressed word.

What kind of laughter is described as コロコロ笑う?

547 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2010-10-06 09:19 ID:eHWAJbme

The phrase describes people laugh
even with small jokes.
It has a cute nuance so it used for a situation such as,
for example, when a girl frequently laughs or giggles in a conversation and her smile is lovely...
So it's not used for a elder man who is laughing "WAHAHAHAHA!"
Sorry for my awkward English,,, I'm learning it.

It is an incomplete sentence, i.e. a fragment.
The phrase lacks a main verb.
So "The criminal that you let free because you thought you could arrest him/her whenever you wish" might be near.

Regarding the instances of Saghal copyright problems until this point:

First of all, because it looks like there's some misunderstanding, I'm writing the exact details of how things got started with some reservation.

I'm responding to almost every direct mail that I receive (though it was impossible to respond to every message that came through things like my shoutbox and journal). The reason why is largely because I enjoy my art being liked and think it the least I can do by way of gratitude. It takes time but I was replying to every message (Subsequently, to my friends, if I didn't respond to everyone, they were surprised to hear).

Some time passed, and a message arrived that said "Your Saghal is being processed by someone and introduced as their own character. Aren't you going to do something?". In order to nip the problem in the bud, I quickly intended to address the copyright.

And then, again, I received a bunch of e-mails saying how "So-and-so is using your Sahgal and doing business as they please. Aren't you going to do something?". In order to nip the problem in the bud, I quickly thought to impose a set of rules and procure a margin.

Most of the e-mails were asking "Is it alright to use Saghal for my Fursona?". After getting a mountain of mails with the same content, and to make it so that fans wouldn't need to wait a long while for my permission, I wrote on my profile, "For personal usage, you don't need to ask for my permission".
Because there were so many comments and e-mails, surpassing a level which I could not address by myself, I thought it best to atleast establish a set of guidelines with etiquette in mind. I thought that if I couldn't deal with it by myself, I should be clear-cut so that if anyone were to only look at my profile they would be able to understand the rules.

If I were to think why I was going to this business-like extent to find some resolution, I just wanted to curtail the amount of time I spent responding to mail, and, primarily, I wanted to make it possible to resume spending my time as a wanted (that is, carefully illustrating the art that I consented).

What everyone wants to see is if I have enough self confidence to release the art able to be released. Regrettably, I don't have the ability to smoothly communicate with everyone. There was too much stress, a bad influence pervaded, I was forcing myself to keep up, I stopped writing long addresses in English, and I thought that steadily drawing the pictures I wanted was the most fitting to my nature.

Regarding the copyright of Saghal, I plan to remove fee regulations very soon. I merely want to thank the individuals who conscientiously payed the copyright fee up until this point. I will continue the production of the Free Tag.

What is the difference between AV and DVD in Japan?

I was reading an ero manga where a film director shoots a porn scene with an idol, but then is later surprised to discover that the idol's contract was for a DVD, not an AV. I know AV is Adult Video, so does DVD imply an idol video that's not pornographic?
