Can anyone please explain to me what happens in akagi between the end of the drama and the end of the game? I really need to know it, but I can't find a fucking synopsis
Is today a normal work day? Ie stores are open and running as usual?
I need to buy a laptop
This was posted by someone maybe a month back.
I still find it interesting.
A Texan maid cafe would be like Hooters, maybe.
They don't have those.
What you want is to go to a diner outside of any big city. If you select right you will get a big and delicious all American breakfast and godly customer service from a good looking blonde country girl with a beautiful smile that will call you all sorts of cute names pet names.
Just make sure to leave a 20% tip or else a curse will fall upon you for the rest of your trip.
じゃ、 Guess today I will adventure in Akihabara if the usual stores are open
It's just hard to do touristy stuff in America... I'd need to take a cab just to get a good all American breakfast, and that would cost extra 20 bucks or something for the cab ride.
Akihabara has a huge Yodobashi and Softmap, dunno about bic camera
I think It would be best going there for convenience since Shinjuku is pretty shitty
Well sorry that we sometimes like to go out to breakfast and eat eggs and bacon and relax and enjoy ourselves.
You're right everyone should just have toast and coffee for breakfast every day for maximum efficiency.
For sure. What he described is definitely the stuff of movies. But Denny's is probably the worst place to look for that. That or Waffle house or IHOP
Every one who works at those has a meth head chic going on
Exactly don't go to any chain diner. You want a mom and pop diner. Some place that you need to drive to.
Of course every place is different, but I have hit the jackpot one or two times while on a roadtrip with family. It's kind of bittersweet because it's like "that place is amazing, and we'll never eat there again because it's in the middle of nowhere."
I guess Japan is the only one in the world that New Year's Day is the day of special Event.
It seems that the Gregorian calendar regarded as a symbol of modernization generally.
Therefore the people of many countries celebrate the old calendar's day.
Or the monotheism countries have each another period of religion anniversary.
For fucks sake rude is a subjective measure that depends on cultural norms. I'm just describing what's considered polite and rude in America. I don't care if you think it's stupid. Yes maybe it is kind of stupid. I'm not defending it just saying how things are.
>don't y'all got tipping in the UK?
It doesn't really exist here. Sometimes people will round up to the nearest £1 or £5 when paying for pizza or in a restaurant (depending on price) in order not to look cheap, but even that's not universal. People don't tip cab drivers or barbers or hotel staff though.
How would a woman at a maid cafe react if you told them that they messed up and needed to be spanked as punishment?
Would they roll with it or would they get management kick your hentai ass out?
I tip cab drivers in America when I can afford it and when they've done something they didn't have to. Like make a stop for me, wait for me, or have a nice conversation with me. But if I just get in the cab and get to my destination without causing him trouble or without him going above and beyond in some way, I don't tip
It's okay anon, you did your best.
They celebrate Lunar New Year more than New Year.
One calendar was used in Japan from the first breakup of relations with China, one thousand years ago, to 17th centuries.
An ancient calendar loses time little by little.
The calendar of China was changed two times by Mongolia and Jurchen for that period.
The calendar of Japan was changed several times in their hand and they introduced Western calendar each time.
Eventually they introduced the Gregorian calendar and still continues today.
Does anyone here use a laptop? are they good nowadays?
I do not want to go to g since they will just blast me with thinkpads
What is the usual price for a "decent" one nowadays? I wont use it to play video games but I will use some pretty duty heavy programs
Sorry to ask so soon after the previous one, but I really have no idea what this is supposed to say.
I mostly understood the first half of it, but after 含め the word order and such really confuses me.
It's not mandatory here at all, cab drivers will always offer change. A lot of people tend to round up though (for example, if your fare is £8.60, a lot of people will just give £10 because they cba with change). It's the same thing with pizza men who come to your door (I'm cheap as fuck, so I always get change, but they don't seem to mind).
stupid Japanese customs:
-getting drunk with your co-workers every day
-buying cheap junk as souvenirs for all of your co-workers and acquaintances
-wrapping everything in multiple layers of wrapping paper/bags
>girl online says she wants more than just sex
>afks once she has an orgasm
I'm not surprised, just disappointed.
Now I need to ignore her intentionally for four days if I want her to continue to be interested in me.
>-getting drunk with your co-workers every day
I did this when I was working full time in nyc. Not every day though, but quite often. It's not so bad, considering I had more of a social life then than I do now.
You should not be mean to Americans, anon.
Yeah, we figured that out after you took in thousands of people that want to bomb us.
It's extremely hard to take a German seriously considering the current political situation. If an Englishman said mean things about American though it would hurt a bit. They're our daddy afterall.
>I don't want to hear the opinions of Americans
>Better post my own equally useless and unsolicited opinion about them
>Better make a post likely to attract replies from Americans
How tsun of you
Ah, I see.
How does 含め work there, though? Verbs need to be nominalized to be in the middle of the sentence, right? Is it just that the particle that would nominalize it is dropped and just implied in the sentence?
>I love English and I love America, the country that invented it
foreigners speak american, not english. from the accent, pronunciation, spelling, you know this to be true
I was serious about the English teacher part.
I actually am an English teacher
Proud to be enployed
Proud to teach kids not to use u where it doesn't belong
Proud to teach them to say subway not tube
The candle that shines twice as bright burns half as long. Heaven's finally got its missing angel back.
Real talk though, the English language has a lot of really stupid nuances.
C and X are practically useless letters and silent letters are pants on head retarded.
Not to mention...
>They're, their, there
>to, too, two
The only pure, untainted version of English is that which is spoken in and around the Home Counties. Every other dialect is a second-class offshoot, and all speakers should show deference when addressing their linguistic betters.
Nope, no, nada, fuck you, Oxford comma will always be correct.
>also called ... Harvard comma
>In American English, a majority of style guides mandate use of the serial comma
This is quite an American comma and I take full credit for it on behalf of America
Either is correct, and each has advantages and disadvantages.
"To my parents, Ayn Rand and God." implies the writer was born of the virgin Ayn Rand through the Holy Spirit.
"To my mother, Ayn Rand, and God." could be implying the writer's mother is Ayn Rand.
I hate a stereotype of Japan for example 'Honne' and 'Tatemae'.
Because the principle of separation of government and religion is 'Tatemae', though Christmas is 'Honne' in West.
I think the agreement of such a stereotype is 'The theories of Japanese cultural'.
He's getting cucked by his government mandated mandatory refugee
What would your girlfriend say if they knew you were posting here?
Geez stop. Let's all have peace for a moment.
Housing refugees isn't even government mandated yet for individuals or families. They are still operating under an incentive based program.
He's mad that his country has fallen so far
Idk but what would that really tell you?
No because that isn't relevant at all to the work I do.
The students don't need to know about my personal life and the teachers have their own lives and shouldn't be interested in mine
Oh Vanilla chocolate honey with a cherry on top
I’ll show you different things every day, only to you
More variety than the rainbow reflected in the fountain
I’ll be pulled even more by you, who draws out my love
I think Japan is boring but I like this thread
things I dislike: americans, kpop
things I like: the smiths, ac/dc
I like hiking and playing the guitar
Mostly Neil Young and Johnny Cash but if you punch me afterwards I can play romantic love songs too so your pants can fly away
I'm looking forward to hearing from you
PS: I'm only interested in girls with single eyelids kkkkk
is it okay if i go to japan this summer?
maybe i can meet you my friends
I only want to meet the girls from this thread because they can't rape me
don*t worry I'm not interested in japanese women lel
yes I think most japanese girls are ugly but that's not the reason
I don't care about looks (except for eyelids)
I can choose my gf so I want a gf that can insult me in Korean :33333 then hit me and scratch me
but then maybe lick the blood with her cute tongue
one day maybe
God sure broke the mold when he made you, anon.
This one looks like she might punch you.
Because I'm creepy as shit and have folders full of girls on my computer. Most of them aren't Japanese, but this is the Japanese thread.
I mean I get it but you can just use a regular computer to run tripcode explorer. How expensive could it be?
Do you mean your electric bill?
Can't be much
I'm sorry but not everyone is a fat American who eats processed shit in a can.
They sell that shit in New Zealand but no one touches it.
In this context, he means using "like" as a filler
It doesn't mean anything in the sentence; it is only used to fill gaps in thought
In Japanese I think people say ね or さ or なんか
What you are saying is 猫みたいな動物
which also translates to "like" in English, but a different "like"
I want to live in a world where comics like don't exist.
yhis is a pitucere of me take me to the gay bar
to be fair, the origin of "like" as filler comes from using it the same way as みたいな
But Japanese has a billion different softeners that they constantly use, so using "like" a lot is more jarring in English.
Take a 15 minute stroll through tumblr, but don't come crying back to us if you lose your faith in humanity.
T-these people are trolling though, right?
yea it's pretty much people from 4chan trying to instigate bullshit
tumblr is actually pretty alright if you're not a fucking prat and don't follow SJW bullshit
I use it to follow artists I like
It's hard to tell sometimes. There are pockets of echo Chambers so deep in the loony bin that it becomes indistinguishable.
There is definitely a lot of real ones, however, that do in fact find the need to become a perpetual victim and play the victim card to escape their own insecurities, including but not limited to:
Nothing is ever their fault, and the world has to change for them and make safe spaces because no one should be subjected to cognitive dissonance or differing opinions. Can't have any feefees getting hurt.
The difference in degeneracy between 4chan and tumblr is that tumblr coddles insanity, mental illness, insecurity, etc, while 4chan recognizes, accepts, and makes light of it (when it is valid in the first place).
Was it shemale + male with the male sucking/getting fucked or was it the shemale sucking/getting fucked?
Or was it shemale + female/shemale?
I can't watch men sucking dick/getting fucked 2bh...
Shemale + female/shemale is pretty okay sometimes though 2bh.
There's really not much value in caring about one's sexuality in this day and age where you have the world's porn at your fingertips.
shemale sucking dick
but I also like japanese girls with fake dicks that can shoot huge loads of cum
I don't know how that genre is called though
what do you mean they look the same
I don't know what it is but I always got a more positive impression of transgenderness from 4chan than tumblr. It's like 4chan accepts gender confusion and dissatisfaction as a foregone conclusion, like it's a part of the human experience. But on tumblr it feels so hopeless, like if you even think about dressing like a girl then you're permanently marked and doomed to be oppressed. If tumblr was around when I was a teenager, I'd probably feel like a freak.
A number of feminists err more on the side of man-haters and female supremacy, and feelings on the transgender community is rather mixed. Some support it, but many also feel that it is a threat to their gender. They feel that men can not and will never be able to become a true woman, and feel that a woman should be satisfied being a woman and should not seek to become a degenerate man.
People on 4chan will toss jokes around and make fun of everything, as they do, but in general celebrate, accept, and make merriment of their degeneracy. No one knows you're into traps, futa porn, etc, so no one gives a fuck if you have a conversation about and/or lurk in a trap thread for a wank.
Who owns everything below those odd bumbs at her leg?
They're going to be sitting in a medical waste recepticle soon if she doesn't manage her diabetes.
to be fair, a pound for a pound is a pretty good deal
if that's all it takes to incentivize someone to lose weight and become a healthier, more productive member of society, that's a pretty good deal
I wholeheartedly agree.
Why would I want to not fap?
回答が来ない(´ . .̫ . `)
Between 5-10 times a week. Once a night, twice if I'm really feeling frisky.
>Why would I want to not fap?
I'm usually of the same attitude, and I've never heard of this nofap.
That said, I've been considering it lately, if only to grant my poor and bruised member a break
Well if you take a break for a little while, you can really drive up your lust, building up. After about a week, it peaks and then slowly declines though.
I haven't done it for a while because it just made me feel like shit about not having a girlfriend, and I felt depressed because I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I don't know how long it's been but probably about three weeks.
Not really helping me not fap by posting that gif, anon.
If there's anything about that studio's games that gets me the hardest, it's their incredibly detailed animation of the mouths. Not even just with kisses, it's particularly when they're just speaking normal words. You could probably lipread them.
Do you know if there is any way to modify it to get translations in there? I really, really want to play it (and I have a couple NSFW scenes on hand as well) but I feel like I'm gonna be missing out if I don't get to read along. Half the experience for me is the setting and story when I'm going through something like that. I'm tempted to get it just for the scenes, but I'm just really hoping and waiting.
Easier said than done. Anyone know if using the Google translate app with the camera works well?
>Day 1 of nofap
Then make sure not to look under my skirt
My experience with vanilla google translate for my intro to jap class (took it on a whim for gen ed cred) was pretty shitty. Sometimes I could decipher the intended meaning with a bit of thought, but it was rather uncommon for it to translate a comprehensible complete sentence.
