Is there some sort of trend going in Japan about passing foreign (basically Engrish) words or names as Japanes names?
Shit, I never expected THAT to arrive to Japen.
It's like the niggerette names.
>Lord of the kek's
It's like a stippers name m8.
>Dat big violin line
shit those italics touching the regulars is normal or it's just me?
Say that again, but in actual English this time
I'm not sure what you mean, but you should be able to just hit S and temporarily turn off the subtitles if you want to take a screenshot. Also, the presentation resolution needs to be the same as the source resolution, so exit fullscreen before pressing Alt-I to preserve the screenshots. For example, this screenshot was taken while it was fullscreen on my 1600x900 screen.
And this screenshot was the same frame, but windowed instead of fullscreen.
It appears to be a piece of paper with japanese on it, captain
I'm a manlet and I played double bass just fine in middle school. You don't hold it straight up like she is doing when you play. Most players will rest it back on their shoulders a bit when using the bow, and if you're short you can rest it back farther. Resting it too far back can make it hard to pluck the strings, but for somebody with basic proficiency it shouldn't be much of a problem. Also, there aren't frets. You just have to know where to finger the strings to get the right note. A lot of beginners will mark the instrument with tape or markers until they have the tone and place memorized.
anyone else try doing this after the episode?
Lastly, something not entirely related, but… it kind of is.
One thing you can basically count on worldwide is parents giving their kids unusual names, for better or worse. In Japan, it’s typical that you name someone with kanji, then provide a specific phonetic reading (since one set of kanji could be read multiple ways). Less often, there may be no kanji given, only hiragana or katakana, so the intended reading is immediately apparent.
However, the in-between which some parents go for is… you guessed it, unusual kanji readings, sometimes with no regard whatsoever for the traditional readings of the kanji. Observe:
“You named your daughter Tenshi? Like she’s your little angel! Aw, that’s so cute!”
“Actually, it’s read "Enjeru”…“
"I retract my previous statement.”
These are referred to as “DQN names,” DQN standing for “dokyun,” which is… more or less a sound of disbelief at how dumb something is, almost heart-stoppingly so. It’s also just used to mean “complete idiot.”
So just how embarrassing is it to have a DQN name? Well, here’s at least how I see it.
When I first started I played a 3/4-size, the kind bluegrass players usually use, but I also played a full size fairly often. Wasn't really much more difficult as long as I kept the endpin short. I stopped playing it after I finished middle school though since I could never hope to afford one for myself and picked up the guitar and bass guitar.
