Hi, loving everyone!^^ I'm 19years old, a Japanese Otaku.
I'm a high school graduate who is preparing for another chance to enter a college.(This is called "Rounin" in Japan, a masterless Samurai is also called "Rounin".)
I made every effort to enter college, but college refused me, because I couldn't read/write English well.

So, I want you to speak to me easily, and point out my wrong.
You can ask me everything! I'm not a grim person.^^ I love you all.(^ε^)
come on! come on everybody!

Do you think this sentences childish?

...oh,excursus.
I like WWE,progressive rock. thanks for reading

Nah, it won't die as long as I won't.

Reading some of my earlier posts are pretty weird, I basically stopped (paused!) my attempt at learning Japanese after making most plans. I'm lazy... I did buy Mawaru Made in Wario! and Rhythm Tengoku (http://youtube.com/watch?v=83tvy3iO5YI) which are very stimulating to make me continue again since I really want to know what is said!

Also, I have final exams in 2 weeks. I'm currently on an "exam training", which means three days of non-stop learning. This is the second time I'm doing this; the previous time I did it for maths and I was really tired afterwards. I feel kind of bad for my parents who have to pay this (just because I didn't do enough at school), it's 44524 yen for each training! But I couldn't stop them from doing this.

Anyway, how are you?

It must be a B. I don't know much about the American grading system though... Wouldn't it be "70" in Japan? Anyhow, since those are my two weakest subjects, I'm glad I got grades for them that would cause me to graduate.

>you don't want me to translate the lyrics, is that right?

Agh, now I read what I typed I see how you can get the wrong idea. More clear: please translate it!
I was just trying to remark that I hope that there will be a point when I will be able to do it without having to ask you. (I think I'm the one who made the mistake here, sorry for that.)

>It is still cold here in Sendai. Do you already wear the short sleeve?

Out of habit I put on a sweater, so it was terribly hot at school... But yeah, it's certainly the weather for wearing sleeveless clothes over here. On the other hand, it's getting less hot now, so I can sleep in peace now (without having the fan turned on all night). :)

I hope everything's fine over there? I'm going to bed now, so good night~

I just finished watching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱), it's really nice. You watched it too, didn't you? I like how it combined the usual school anime stuff with a kind of science fiction, and Haruhi herself is adorable. :3

I always feel a bit sad when I've seen the last episode, but a second season will be here soon...

620 Name: 1 : 2008-05-15 12:59 ID:Heaven

Welcome to the otaku world! You like Haruhi! :) I like Nagato with a navy blue jersey!
The animation is based on young adult books. 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱, 溜息, 退屈, 消失, 暴走, 動揺, 陰謀, 憤慨, 分裂, these nine books have been published, but the tenth has been postponed its issue for almost one year. I hardly remember the content of work. The only thing I can remember is its character(Maybe this is why Japanese critics call young adult fictions "Character novels").
One of my friends is friendly with the author's acquaintance. So I feel the author in my own backyard.

>I always feel a bit sad when I've seen the last episode

The last episode? Mahler symphony No.8! Veni! Veni!

>but a second season will be here soon

I think one of the reasons of the postpone is this. It's fine commercialism.

I want to write more, but I have to do a paper by tomorrow. I must close now. Hasta la vista, baby!

So that means I know someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows the author of the Haruhi novels? That's awesome! ;)

>By the way, what is your specialty? Do you find a job when you will have done those tests?

After I finish high school I hope to go to the Utrecht School of Arts ("Game Design and Development"), so I still have some school years ahead of me. But I'll probably take a job in the vacation again (last year I did English to Dutch translating work at some company).

My speciality... I'm trying to gain skills in creating games, composing music and drawing, but I can't show much yet. I hope to finish my first proper game soon... should I keep you updated? ;)

629 Name: 1 : 2008-05-24 14:40 ID:Heaven

>I still envy your dedication.

What I say is sometimes different from what I do. d(^o^)b

You are a student of VWO, aren't you? You're much younger than I thought. I envy you because you are not only younger but also better in English than me. But the envy would make me diligent. It's a synergy effect!

>last year I did English to Dutch translating work at some company

What a energetic man you are! I haven't even done a part-time job. I'm a worthless man. I'm sorry.(Japanese apologige in this case.)

>I'm trying to gain skills in creating games

One of my friends is creating a game like Touhou(東方). Touhou is a shooter game and is now very popular between Otakus. Although I think it's just a brunch of temorary Moe(萌え) industry.

>should I keep you updated?

Definitely, YES! I'm interested in your creation!

630 Name: confi : 2008-05-27 16:22 ID:Heaven

>I'll translate the video in time, sorry. My laziness will never be slackened.

Take your time. I'm not too fast with most things either (this post is proof for that).

>You are a student of VWO, aren't you? You're much younger than I thought.

No, I am (for another week or so) a student of HAVO, which is one step below VWO. I did start out on the VWO level due to an initial test but... let's just say I'm a bit lazy. :(

>You're much younger than I thought.

Really? I'm 18, so the difference between us is about 2 years right?

>I envy you because you are not only younger but also better in English than me.

Don't - the reason I'm better in English is because my native language is a lot closer to English than yours. It would be more fair to compare your level of English to my level of Japanese! (ack...)

>One of my friends is creating a game like Touhou(東方).

Cool, I play it actually. It has a little popularity over here as well (well, on the internet). I think it's a nice series, and the music is just awesome. Remember when I posted as "config.sys"? This was inspired by the Touhou music remixers IOSYS, which I discovered before discovering the games themselves - the music got me interested.

>Although I think it's just a branch of temporary Moe(萌え) industry.

It's all quite commercial indeed, but I'm enjoying most of it too much to care about that. :) But I do think ZUN deserves the money for his work. He did a great job creating this all by himself.

By the way, a lot of people you know do something creative... I think that's part of Japanese culture, over here it's more of an exception to create something. Well, something of reasonable quality at least.

And now I'm going to try to do something productive. I just hope I didn't do too bad on those exams...

I think this net slang is a little old. I used to start chatting with this term when I was a junior high school student.

>Have you played any of the テイルズオブ (Tales of...) games?

I've played テイルズオブデスティニー (PS ver.). I don't remember exactly, but I think I borrowed the game from one of my friends. And I left it halfway. I remember the battle system was very good.
I hope you will not fall into a bottomless pond of online and video games. That addiction is as strong as drugs!

It is old? Ah... I guess it's a bit like with "lol", which is most used ironically nowadays. (Well, some people still use it, but many people think this is annoying.) So what is a good alternative?

One year has passed. But nothing has changed widely in both good and bad sense.
I've been studying moderately. On the score, I'm in the top 10 percent of my department.
I want to be a researcher, so will go to graduate school. There is a rule that a student who have a good score is exempted from the entrance exam for graduate school. And so, I'll be free from the exam.

I can talk only about myself. All of sentences I wrote have "I" as the nominative. I dislike it, so I, I...

俺も戻りました

It's strange for me to read this thread again, it feels like it's such a long time ago. I also don't feel like writing too much about myself, but some things have definitely changed.

One of the positive things is that my Japanese has improved, and your early pointers certainly got me started. I'll continue to learn and absorb the language so at one point I can effortlessly speak it with you.

Did you keep checking this thread? I just remembered about it and am a little surprised you posted something just a few days ago. Sorry for not keeping my promise.

P.S.: a long time ago in this thread:

1:

>わかりません。ごめん。
>でもココは毎日見てますよ。

Me:

>Gah, I haven't studied Japanese enough to understand most of that.

It's funny how the past me didn't understand it, and now I do! (I'm not very good yet, though.) I hope you haven't checked every day this whole year...

Happy New Year again.

We hope that >>1-san is well.

688 Name: コンフィグ : 2011-01-24 23:19 ID:Heaven

Yes... Happy new year >>1君!

689 Name: 1 : 2011-03-05 07:29 ID:Heaven

Hi, long time no see you. You won't believe, but I'm >>1. It's true, it's damn true.
And happy new to you all.

I will graduate from university in the end of this month, and will enter graduate school of engineering from next month though my major is rather physics than engineering. I hope I will start posting papers in this year.

As you see, my English-writing skill is not improved. But I can communicate with foreign students in English. Last summer, I invited one of them to my hometown. I have to thank all of you here, because communication in this thread encouraged me to talk with foreign students. Arigatougozaimasu!

So... What should I write?
Ah, recently I'm interested in AKB48. Someday there will be a conference in Tokyo, then I wanna go to the AKB48 theater in Akihabara. Miichan rules!

Hey >>1, great to hear from you again. It has been a long time, I'm >>4, can't believe we were talking over 4 years ago.

I came to check this thread because I remember all that time ago that you said you were in Sendai. It was great to see your post, but I also hope you're doing ok after the earthquake and tsunami. It's a terrible tragedy and people around the world are watching and thinking of you guys.

I hope all your friends and family are ok and things can start returning to normal for you as quickly as possible.

It might be a while before you come and check this or are able to reply, but I'll check back regularly! Best of luck to you and I really sincerely hope you're ok.

I don't know what else to say. Remember you have friends all over the world and we're all watching and wishing you the best. If we can help in any way then let us know! My friends and I here will be donating towards relief efforts and hoping for the best.

Wow... I hope >>1 is okay.

692 Name: Shii : 2011-03-16 04:50 ID:nghhDXZS

Just FYI for thread readers, the >>689 post was made from Ibaraki, so he's probably okay.

Thanks Shii, that's something of a relief. Still hope to hear from him eventually, but I know wherever he is he has a lot to deal with right now, like most people over there. =(

Hey, I went to Germany for research. I'm becoming a scientist.

Happy new year!

Hi >>1, I'm glad you're fine! It seems like this thread is everlasting...

Since I live in the Netherlands, I never expected you to come live so close! Please tell more about it if you have time!

Hallo! Happy new year to you too!

I've already come back to Japan, but I had been in Nordrhein-Westfalen (Düsseldorf, Köln, Aachen, and Monschau!). I remember Aachen is very close to Netherland. That's a pity we couldn't meet each other even though we were so close!
Actually, I wanted to go to Amsterdam to visit Anne Frank house, but my friends stopped me because many people in Amsterdam act so freely and it is not suitable for people like me (=people who are not familiar with traveling around).

697 Name: 1 : 2012-01-09 14:01 ID:Heaven

Oh, I'm sorry. I should have written "the Netherlands," not "Netherland."

698 Name: 1 : 2012-01-09 14:15 ID:Heaven

About the earthquake on March 11, I had spent first four days in the shelter because of no life line at my apartment. After that I had come back to my hometown. Many people tried to escape from Tohoku area. So all the buses and plains were occupied (at that time trains were not available). It was like "Hokuto no Ken." :P

699 Name: 1 : 2012-08-13 10:24 ID:Heaven

Hey guys, I went to the Netherlands. Although I visited Amsterdam, I did not go to the Anne Frank house. I should have spent more time for sightseeing.

W-wow, you were so close to me! Was Amsterdam like you expected it to be?
