I grew up off the grid in Vernon, and I saw my parents work hard every day, as teachers but also while farming and building a log home. So from a young age I knew the value of hard work.

If I go to Japan will I be expected to bathe nude publicly with Japanese people? Also will they stare at me or bully me for being a foreigner? I have never been particularly comfortable being publicly nude.

Grayson Roberts
Grayson Roberts

Yes. It is common for foreigners to avoid bathing entirely during their stay in Japan for that reason, thus leading to the stereotype of 汚い外人

Jackson Lopez

Hi, I'm translating something to improve my japanese and english (not native) and I'm curious about something I'm currently working on.

The context is: someone is reading an erotic tale from a book.

Now, for example this sentence:
耳の後ろから 首筋 鎖骨 肩 吾郎の指かゆっくりと綸子の感覚を鋭敏にして
吾郎 Gorou
綸子 Rinko

I went with:
From the back of her ear, to the nape of her neck, to the collabone, to the shoulders, Gorou slowly felt Rinko with his finger... making her sensitive...

I have 3 questions:

1. Is the translation accurate? If I got something wrong, what is it (if you can explain why/how, I appreciate)?
2. Does the original sentence looks more like... poetic, or something from a book? I think it's a bit different from dialogues, but only as it doesn't use too many short forms or abrevs... but I'm not sure.
3. How is the english sentence I came up with? Assuming it's from a book, could/should I do it in another way to make it sound like one?

How do you express "since" in Japanese
Not like causation since but since as in "I haven't been seen him since we were kids"

I'm pretty sure that particular sentence can be expressed with 彼は子供の時から見ない or something like that, but I was just wondering

If I download developer edition will all my settings and addons sync?
Disable the "run dev edition at the same time as normal firefox" setting and you should automatically be placed in your old firefox profile. If not them enable the profile manager (google about it) and you should be able to select your old profile manually
how to update
google "rikaisama", acquire download link, profit (use your brain)

Japan has a great anime culture, almost all people there are otakus to some degree, I'm talking about the relatively young people of course. The entire nation of Japan celebrates and honors Miyazaki movies like national treasures.
He is probably just jealous.
I have enough of my own money and I'm not really comfortable saying anything else. Why would a school help anyone visit for such a long time?

Nicholas Lewis
Nicholas Lewis

The only other option I see here, based on the words used, is that the author implies you can call for some panties even if you don't have any yourself, making this trick available for everyone. But that sounds a little ridiculous even in the context of an article about tying panties into imitation ribbons.

Do you really want my opinion? I've not stated this before because I dont want to put words into the gook's mouths but anime/manga culture cheapens and misrepresents japanese culture. Esp now that they export "otaku culture" now, people lack the context for why this shit exists in the first place.

I based this on the assumption that 断言できる is an expression with more to it than 断言+出来る.
Judging by the hashtag, though, it seems that even as its own expression, it's pretty decisive:
https://twitter.com/hashtag/%E6%96%AD%E8%A8%80%E3%81%A7%E3%81%8D%E3%82%8B

Would someone more knowledgeable throw us a bone here?

Landon Mitchell
Landon Mitchell

I'm not like that and I know Japanese so it's not a very good comparison. But I love Japan too, I guess that's the only similarity we have.
Are you Japanese? I don't see why your opinion matters if that's not the case. I know that Japanese people enjoy anime even more than we westerners do, it's made in their great nation after all.

Joseph Miller

I cant claim to know what it is but it certainly isnt anime.

What I can say I would like to do though is:
Stay in a ryokan
Visit a conbini
eat local foods
visit a department store

ofc you'd have to go to the touristy places just because well, from what ive experienced it is worth the sight

Like I said I dont want to speak for the Japanese. Its just my personal opinion and I know it may not represent what Japanese people believe.

Going over this paragraph:
here are some types of panties which aren't good for making ribbons
only normal-type panties will do
unlike cell phones, panties aren't even something that everyone has on hand, so this is a lifehack for everyone!

Nathan Edwards

Not the same guy, but seriously Akihabara isn't even the most interesting part of Tokyo.

Maid cafes are a fun one-time experience that have a big concentration there but there's nothing really unique about Akiba besides that. Taito Gamestation was fun too but the claw machines on the bottom floor are a waste of money. If you like rhythm games you'll like the arcades there.

Other things you could do not in Akiba / the City would be hiking and onsen. You could also go to izakaya and talk to actual japanese people instead of your weeb friends. Have fun user

Colton Powell
Colton Powell

If his posts are good enough that people actually feel compelled to argue with him he's improving. This thread has had autistic arguments since long before the spammer came along. So if he stops spamming and starts autistic arguments he's just carrying on the thread tradition.

Adrian Campbell
Adrian Campbell

Sure, I'm happy for you. I'll be sure to visit a konbini and department store for the great cultural insight the provide. Fuck Akihabara.
I'll check out the maid cafes, I'm not really into maids but I guess it will be somewhat anime-like. Any other good places?
I believe I've said earlier that I'm not really interested in going to old Japanese places like Shinto shrines etc, I'm not a religious person.

Matthew Thompson
Matthew Thompson

But both of those posts were me. I rejected the call-for-panties hypothesis because it doesn't make sense logically, and the grammar doesn't seem to support it.
everyone has a cellphone
however, panties aren't that widespread
therefore, pantsu ribbons being a suitable trick for everyone is 断言できる.
If it were the other way around:
panties aren't that widespread
however, everyone has a cell phone
therefore, pantsu ribbons being a suitable trick for everyone is 断言できる.
Plus, the earlier part of the paragraph specifies how you can't just use any type of panties, so ending it with the assertion that it's a trick for everyone to use seems dissonant to the point of being a bad joke or a mistake.

Which method did you use? and why is a guy saying it is useless? That's a shitposter?

Parker Diaz
Parker Diaz

That's a shitposter?
You sure got that right.

I was using RTK, then I noticed that I was going slow as fuck with RTK and switched to simply brute forcing Kanji with Anki (knowing the radicals helps with this) and blasted through Kanji doing something between 30 and a hundred on good days. Until I reached about 1800 and burnt out from how much I was doing.

What method works for you is a highly subjective matter, I'd just suggest changing from whatever you are using now and pacing yourself better than I did.

Isaiah Gomez
Isaiah Gomez

and why is a guy saying it is useless? That's a shitposter?
Yes. For a few days now, he has been spending seemingly his entire day shitposting in these threads with "kanji study is useless".

Don't bother reporting him, the mods ignore these threads so you'll just be wasting your time. If everyone ignores him, he'll probably get bored before too long and leave.

Not to say that it's not doable, not at all, it's just going to be a whole lot more of a pain and less convenient than computer-aided study.

Though a smartphone can substitute quite fine for almost everything, including Anki. Just sync your stuff when you have wifi and it'll even be backed up.

I know this is a pretty nooby question but, how do you tell when a な after a verb is the casual negative and when it's just a sentence ending な?

Be negative or just emphasized?

Ryder Butler

Negative + emphasized

Aiden Cruz
Aiden Cruz

you just know dude like i just know that one is always negs

Isaiah Adams

な after the dictionary form, like 利くな is either a negative command, as in "do not", or a particle that indicates emotion. In your example it's the latter. I don't know what you mean by casual negative exactly

Ian Scott
Ian Scott

negative but like not that serious

Matthew Robinson
Matthew Robinson

Fair enough, I did figure it was that from the context but I figured maybe there would be some other tell tale signs

I meant like casual negative imperative sorry, is there no way to tell whether its being used as a command or a particle other than context though?

Jordan Martin
Jordan Martin

Actually it is the negative penile form. Which means it's a casual imperative prohibition with additional emphasis.

Alexander Campbell
Alexander Campbell

is there no way to tell whether its being used as a command or a particle other than context though?
No, but it usually ends up being pretty clear which one it is. Also, if any other particles precede な, it's always the emotive one, I'm pretty sure.

Quantity doesn't matter in high art, the soul of the creator is the only thing that matters. One Japanese VN artist is worth a thousand chink animators. The fact that the artist draws the VN by himself already makes him superior.

That's an oxymoron.
I'm not a citizen of the US which houses millions of so called Chinese people. I would like for them to be dealt with so that there is a smaller chance of them polluting anime with their Chinese presence.

「いったん会社を辞めた方は正社員での復帰が厳しいことが分かった。その後の生活のために働き続けることが必要な方が多くいるなかで、厳しさが浮き彫りになったと思う。患者ご本人はすぐに離職の判断を下さないでほしいし会社も本人とよく話し合いをして仕事を続けられる道を一緒に考えてほしい」と話しています。

"It was found if a person temporarily quits its hard to return to work. For people who have to continue working for their livelyhood after recovery, there are many, the difficulty is apparent. I hope that companies which dont want to let go of patients immediately speak with patients to find a road forward"

It's people who had full-time regular positions before cancer and have any type of job after cancer - which may include contract or part time work, I think. They're probably trying to exclude people who retired willingly to talk about people who got forced out of their stable jobs due to cancer?

Ian White

ok so i read it right. it just seemed illogical because what about the people who got forced out of the job and could not find further employment?

It looks more like 行書 (right). Look at the first stroke of the road radical how it's curved.

Owen Allen

I meant to say left. The left 行書 is curved, the right 楷書 is flat.

Gabriel Young

Yes, but it's not leaving any smears. 行書 is about blurring strokes together. The font in the image actively avoids that as you can see in わ and 体.

それでも6月に祝日がないのはツラすぎる! 「雨の日」あたりはマジであってもいい気がするのだが、エライ人たちよ……どうにかならないだろうか?

A better translation for A's first line might be "I'm thinking I'm gonna be doing some surfing this summer", rather than using the word "trying". It seems he has already started previous to this conversation.

it's a flashcard program that drills you on information

the difference from paper flashcards is that it keeps flashcards that you're learning away relative to how much it thinks you know them, so that you can spend more time on cards you don't know
