    To view stuff in a browser all you need is unicode fonts (they're supplied with microsoft office, try the trial).

    Not particularly trolling here, truly interested.

    All the random i want to learn jappo posts around here, are those the end result of a generation with more access to anime?

    No, it's only added to it. Yeah, it does get kinda annoying, but you gotta let people study what they want to study, ya know?

    The bad part is that the ones that study are the minority, the rest conform themselves with fan-translations for games that'll never be released in English, or whine and moan for others that already even have a date. Oh and they also stuff honorifics in their names and other random japanese words in their sentences.

    when I was in Japan the first time, my host family gave me a Japanese name: 歩来安 it's based on pronunciation only...can u guess what it is? and, my Chinese name is: 何伟 this isn't based on pronunciation though.

    No, that's not what they're talking about.

    They're talking about when a person uses honorifics in their own username.

    For example if my username was "Rydian-kun" instead of just "Rydian".

    It's not how honorifics are used, thus the annoyance.

    [​IMG] it was meant to be a joke, me comlpaining about something I am guilty of.
    (should have put Sanshiro instead)

    Anyways, some of the reactions make it seem that there is a lot of hate and discrimination behind the scenes [​IMG]
