You mean serious?
No, I just don't like Peru, and his complaint souns like a 12 year old that just wrote his first two lines of code
otsukaresama, >>53588528 was a real question.
Personally, I'd be more amused than offended if called "kraut", "nazi" on the other hand....
What category is russkie for you, mayuyu?
That picture was taken in Russia.
Britain is very safe, very first world.
I have a question concerning Japanese keyboards/input methods.
If I'm not mistaken, to write kanji, Japanese people will write whatever word they're writing using kana, and then it'll get converted to kanji (correct me if I'm wrong).
But what about words where there's several different kanji? For example, if you want to write "Nagisa", there's different possible kanji (渚, 汀, 凪砂), so if you specifically want to write 汀 for example, how do you do it?
You get a list, that has the most probable cases. It usually parses the context. If you write the whole sentence and convert it then, it'll most likely pick the right one automatically.
Ohayo gozaimasu nihonjin, I hope you have a sugoi day at work and/or school.
A totally natural meme from fintaro
seriously considering about killing myself
not matter how fit and how much money do I have , no girl will ever love me, since all of them only are attracted to white males
everything is so boring
I wanna sleep forever
Women are more attracted to people who are funny, in shape, financially stable and smell nice, rather than people who are simply white
You should try to focus on developing these qualities, if you're trying to attract a mate.
fuck you burger I almost chocked on my own saliva
Are 本音 and 建前 that big of a deal even in casual situations in Japan?
I was watching a mahjong match, and one of the female pros commenting at one point said
Is it considered 'rude' or 'not proper' to show your real self even when it's small stuff like saying something negative about yourself?
From what I see, it's not rude or not proper to anyone in that situation.
She said "I'm sorry" but that doesn't actually mean she is apologizing it's just like saying "Please don't mind me".
That was just the example that brought it to mind, I know she wasn't really apologizing.
It just seemed to me like, in general, being too open about your inner feelings is frowned upon or something.
I think it exists everywhere, it just happens to be more important in Japan. When you don't like someone at work are you gonna tell him to fuck off ? No, what you do is the same as tatemae.
In General, it's depends on a person or situation like >>53599635 said.
I use my "建前" when like I am at work, or on public transportation to try not causing any troubles and show my "本音" when I talk to my closet friends or on internet :3
Could you paraphrase or translate to Japanese these words underlined?
This is a past exam question of the Tokyo University.
PROTIP: I couldn't
>tfw I see a guy on TV that speaks native tier Chinese, Japanese and Korean
Anyone here like Noh theatre? Anyone else here in Japan seen it? I love it. Been three times. But most Japanese people tell me they've never seen it and it's boring. Guess that's understandable. But I like theatre.
If you're lucky, you might find a guy roleplaying as a cute girl.
At some point late this year I'm going to be in a Japan with lots of Japanese people doing Japanese things who are speaking Japanese. I'm also going to be able to look at temples and pink trees.
Man life is good, I'm fucking pumped. LETS GO!
Panama decided to have Japanese monorail system, thanks
I love cute girls. Who are 3D. I just don't get the whole grown thinking adult men liking the cutesy girly kind of Burmese shadow puppet shows. I do watch anime, just not the moeshit. Actually, I read girls comics sometimes to practice Japanese because it's more natural, everyday Japanese than the shounen stuff.
What's funny is that the comics marketed to actual girls specifically are less cutesy and ridiculous than the stuff that is tailored to adult virgin manchildren.
>So I hear about foreigners being approached for conversation all the time in japan
From my experience this just doesn't really happen. Japanese are generally bad at English, and tend to keep to themselves. Approaching random strangers for chitchat is not really a Japanese thing. It's not a "howdy, nice weather we're having how about them Yankees" kind of society.
The only times I've really been a approached by a Japanese person was when it was a Christian trying to invite me to their church.
Might be different elsewhere, but living in Tokyo I don't really see this. Might happen in Yoyogi park sometimes.
What happens here?
Also, somebody tell me where https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfqjIlgSaAg lives so I can wife her.
There are mountains and rivers only in the inside of Shikoku.
There is a pilgrimage course to visit 88 Buddhist temples.
I don't know much about it but yes, there are still monks and men can join them. If you're thinking about joining, I don't know if there's any benefit unless you're a Shintoist who is dedicated to his spirituality.
not really, but it is well-behaved. Lets me pat it when it's eating. Here it is eating ice-cream cone
I really wish they would just shut the fuck up. And it's like, what's the point of them even posting on 4chan? They ramble to each other in Japanese so most people here cannot understand them anyway. It's like who are they trying to reach here?
At least go back to 2chan.
Honestly the mod should just ban netouyo.
I have nothing against netouyo saying what they want, and there are many, many places they can do that. They just don't have to be a cancer here.
Freedom of speech doesn't mean you should have the freedom to literally open your trap anywhere you want in any context.
Imagine there's some kind of Russian cultural festival, and during a speech or a performance some loud protesters just infiltrate the place and start going "Muh gay rights! Muh Crimea!" right in the middle of it.
That's free speech, but it shouldn't be happening like that. There's a time and a place for everything. Context (and location) matters.
You can't say whatever you want whenever you want in America.
Yesterday I barely managed to roll down the foreskin of my phimotic dick, and the opening was so tight I couldn't stay hard for more than a couple minutes at most before wilting. I pounded and pounded and pounded away, and hours later I finally came. It was intense enough to force me into spasms such that my head bounced off and on the pillow a total of five times before finally subsiding. It was only once it was over that I realized I was drooling, as I had produced so much saliva while cumming that it spilled over.
My dream of being a qt fuccboi is almost at hand.
