  • Speculation theory of the Day in Japanese Smash groups: the 7-11 pop up ads are just advertisements to help recover sales and interest in a dlc season that’s underperforming. The 10/4 date will pass without so much of an announcement of Fighter #7.

    I personally don’t subscribe to this but I just felt like sharing it.

    This isn't a matter of sales at all. I figure that we'll hear of the next character when there are NO EVENTS and NO HOLIDAYS to step on the toes of (with some of said events having been delayed, on top of that). Which should theoretically be after the 4th and sometime before Halloween.

    At least :ultjoker: and :ulthero: fans are given room to breath to buy their amiibo in the meantime.

    To put it in short:

    Yeah, though Mario 35 may also get in the way.

    Luckily Crash 4 is in a week, so those of us who are interested in that will be too distracted to notice much after October 2 anyway.
    Finally got around to going to 7-11...

    In Japan, you can send kids to a preschool midway through the year. Technically, preschool is classified as kindergarten in English and kids go to there from 3 years old to 1st grade. However, most preschools have room for so many students so if the nearest one is full, you have to go to a different one. At times, none are available so tough luck; your kid can’t go to school until first grade. Some families will commute more than an hour to go to an available preschool/kindergarten. Plus, the government is closing many of them for reasons unknown to me. In my city alone, we have ten schools and they are closing five of them within three years. We are trying to enroll my daughter in one so she can start in October but of the ten available to us, 8 rejected our applications and interviews either due to space or simply they won’t want her attending. So one of our last options is the Christian kindergarten that’s ran by a local church. As much as my wife and I are against organized religions, our options are limited. They were actually one of the more accepting and friendly of the kindergartens though which was nice. One of the principals at one of the places we tried earlier flat out said “we don’t accept foreign students” even though my daughter is technically half American/Japanese and was born in Japan. She said my daughter’s appearance and mannerisms wouldn’t suit the environment of the kindergarten and may upset the other students and parents.

    I say it's worth buying, the beginning is rough in some aspects & the tutorials aren't great, but chuggacconroy is going to start very soon a let's play on it & he is going to do a better job explaining the game various mechanics, so you can follow it if you have problems in some parts. Just make sure to take your time with it, and get ready for some anime tropes of various quality. (Again, it get better with time)

    For language, I know you can switch the voices via a patch, for texts tho, I heard it depend of your version of the game, Japan only as Japanese & Chinese. Europe version as multi-languages like French, Deutsch, etc.., and English version as only, well, english.

    Let me know if I'm wrong on that last part tho, if you do play it, hope this help.
    Next Monday and Tuesday are national holidays in Japan (Respect for the Elderly and the Autumn Equinox). Historically, Nintendo doesn’t make announcements, reveals, shadowdrops, or anything of that nature on Japanese national holidays. If we get anything, it’ll be later in the week or sometime the week after next.

    I mean, games on the scale of things like FF15 and KH3 are practically the only examples of games that aren't able to run on the Switch let's be real. Sure a lot of the Switch versions have very minor downgrades in graphics and framerate, but most of the time the Switch versions are still good to go. Team Sonic Racing is the only game I can think of where the lower framerate actually affected my enjoyment of the game.
    If you ask someone in Japan if they like Cowboy Bebop/Sailor Moon/Outlaw Star/Trigun, half of them would say they have no idea what those are (well, maybe Sailor Moon) while the other half will say they know they are but only because what they were very popular in the West but virtually unknown in Japan.

    Outside of certain major cultural influences like Gundam and Doraemon the anime industry has far too much coming out of it to focus on one thing for any great length of time, especially ones that have concluded almost two decades ago. Even before getting into how the aforementioned shows were deliberately marketed to the West and have qualities that appeal to Western taste more; it's not that uncommon for people to not know of shows that aired before their time. Most of what shapes people's knowledge is marketing and cultural influences of a particular time period. Thus there's going to be a lot of people liking whatever is popular at a given time. And if you were to ask a bunch of people what they like it would be whatever is currently airing that is popular.

    As far as general attitudes go, it is a major cultural export and Japan wastes no time branding it as such, but I believe it is still viewed as something only kids and losers watch. Manga and possibly mobile games are an exception due to being easy work commute entertainment, but I believe the anime/videogame/LN/VN sphere is generally considered a waste of time that could be better spent building a career and family or whatever is appropriately considered productive for one's age.

    Basically you still have "Turn that garbage off and go read a book, ___ rots your brain" in other countries too.

    S StoicPhantom I should have prefaced it with this “This is a common mistake foreigners make coming to Japan that any Japanese person knows their favorite anime/manga.” I made this mistake almost 15 years ago when I was surprised to find that my Japanese friends that had no idea what Cowboy Bebop was.

    Anime isfar more mainstream and accepted than in the West. Of course, to what level they will watch it is the deciding factor. Lots of people casually watch anime shows but then you have the group of people who attend anime concerts, travel to places while taking pictures with their anime figurine princess, or those who idolize the voice talent. And, of course, there are even more extreme examples of those. Both of these are typically viewed badly or negatively. To draw from personal experiences, my wife isn’t an anime fan but she likes to watch ONE PIECE, Ghibli, Makoto Shinkai movies, Dragon Ball, and Pokemon when she has time. Another example is a 60ish year old 5th grade homeroom teacher at my school who is a huge fan of Attack on Titan and so he decked out his entire classroom with stuff and goods from it. The guy isn’t a nerd or a social reject by any means but he simply enjoys the show.

    Anyways, to go back to my original point, lots of foreigners come to Japan expecting that 1) everything is as they saw it in their favorite anime and 2) everyone in Japan will know their favorite anime. Sometimes they do cause it’s a classic popular one like the anime about a white lion by Tezuka Osamu. But then again, sometimes it’s something that was only popular in the West like Cowboy Bebop.

    Fun fact, despite almost no one knowing or watching Cowboy Benop here, the opening song is is used almost constantly on tv and event. No one knows where it’s from. They just know it as the “badumbadum dum dum” song. Also, fun fact, Tom and Jerry is immensely popular here. Like, it’s everywhere.

    Venus of the Desert Bloom Venus of the Desert Bloom Don't worry I got the general idea of what you were getting at; I was more addressing the other posters. I probably should have tagged them though. That was my bad.

    Though to me liking a medium is more about liking everything related to that medium and not necessarily just liking certain works. Like, I like certain movies like the Terminator or 28 Days Later, but I don't like movies. I don't like the format, I don't like the way they have to be constructed to appease said format, I don't like the general culture surrounding them, and I especially don't like anything about Hollywood or its actors. I do however like anime, its format, how they're constructed and directed; its trends, tropes, and cliches; and the general culture surrounding it. I probably wouldn't want to watch any movies that strays outside horror or 80s type action flicks, but I would watch almost any type of genre or show in anime.


    So I think things like Ghibli and One Piece are along those same lines for Japan as DBZ and Cowboy Bebop are for the West. Shows that got popular among those particular demographics but not really indicative of liking the medium on the whole. And thusly, it isn't really more or less mainstream in either region, as neither region really looks on it any more positively than the others. It's more like SciFi here in the West where everyone likes Star Wars but nobody looks fondly on SciFi nerds. You're allowed to be obsessed with one particular property in mainstream society (Star Wars/Attack on Titan), but not form an entire culture around it, I guess.

    Liking DBZ/One Piece/Ghibli/Shinkai is a bit different than saying you're an anime/SciFi fan. Not just in my opinion I laid out above, but even culturally as well. You can be a fan of Disney and Ghibli in America, but people are going to judge you if you still have a general like of cartoons as an adult. This is what I was referring to when I said "As far as general attitudes go, it is a major cultural export and Japan wastes no time branding it as such, but I believe it is still viewed as something only kids and losers watch." The difference between watching normie approved titles versus making something relatively niche a hobby. And you don't necessarily need to go as far as waifu body pillows and knowing everything about your favorite Seiyuu to have this stigma.
    This is a question I get a lot from Japanese people:

    “In your country, do you eat bread for every three meals?”

    This is because the Japanese tend to eat rice for every three meals and failing to have rice with a meal sort of doesn’t make it a meal. This is more traditional thinking of course and younger people are more likely to bend that thinking a bit. When my wife and I go to the States to visit and then come back, she is always relieved and “at home” to sit down to eat a bowl of rice. Back to the main point, since bread is kind of nutritionally similar to rice, theh tend to think that “bread” is to foreigners as “rice” is to the Japanese. So I often tell them that people in my country don’t eat bread for every meal but we do eat it often which surprises them. I then go on to say that I often eat rice for every meal which further surprises them.
    link2702
    link2702
    I often eat both bread and rice at most meals...probably not the healthiest thing to eat both each meal though....


    Rice and Phở are pretty much the only things me and my wife always have together at the diner table. You'd think I'd like asian food more(specifically VN food) since I'm married to a Vietnamese woman. But there's often just certain things I can't eat that she loves.

    Course the same is true for her. Whenever I eat anything Tex-mex, she immediately has to leave the room cuz she says the smell makes her lose her appetite. And ANYTHING with cheese on it makes her sick just looking at it.

    The diner table some nights looks kinda awkward with just how different some of the dishes are.
    Here’s my prediction: Nintendo is going to do another Byleth-like reveal. The lack of concrete leaks shows they cracking down on insider info and preferring to keeping people in the dark until the last possible second. I think from hear on out, it will be more like Joker/Byleth/Min-Min.
    Shroob
    Shroob
    Eh, depends on what you mean by concrete. Irman seems very aware of what they're doing, albeit much closer to reveals, so he's being fed info slightly early. Between teasing Min Min and teasing the 2nd Hyrule Warriors, dude has some insider info.


    Concrete like what happened with base game? Nah, you're right.
    Leaked a day/couple before reveal? Very likely, and has happened.

    Talking more of the Banjo/Erdrick/Terry garden variety of leaks. Ninty seemed to have learned a lesson about protecting secrets.
    Shroob
    Shroob
    Ehh, again, a bit weird since Banjo and Min Min were pretty much leaked the exact same way to be fair, both via insiders teasing at them, albeit one more blunt than the other, while one hid it in a message.... and Terry's was just a freak accident, which... well that could happen literally any time even if Nintendo is on their best behavior, since all it takes is one button press on the wrong screen lol.
    Well, the worse of the storm has passed and thankfully there wasn’t much damage to my in-laws. The bad part was my father-in-law fractured his arm trying to support a window when a gust of wind blew him down. There’s minor damage to the house but nothing tremendous. They are assessing the rest of the region. I hope Korea can manage to hold out too as the storm moves northward.
    Sorry for posting so much about this but I’m very worried about my friends and family so perhaps this is a way to cope



    My area is where the blue ring is. My in-laws, friends, and other family lives right in the path of this storm. Right where you see a huge blotch of yellow and red. This storm won’t finish until 6 pm tomorrow!

    Thank you both for the kind words and reassurance. I was having a small panic attack and kind of over-worrying. Back in July, my hometown here (well the first city I lived in Japan) flooded over due to torrential rain and killed a few dozen people including an elderly home. It drowned everyone inside when the floodwaters broke through the second story window. That wasn’t even a typhoon but seasonal storms. So naturally I worry. Plus, my in-laws are quite elderly and set in their ways. They aren’t the type to abandon their house. They even lived in in after a portion of it collapsed from massive earthquakes in 2016. I love them to death and greatly respect them but I do worry they can make the rational choice of seeking refuge if they need to. At least they live on a hill and not near the ocean :(. Having been evacuated due to a typhoon a year ago and having to seek refuge in a man evacuation shelter, I know how scary it can be. It was frightening; especially with a wife and child.

    Good news: we got the wife and kids in an earlier flight back home from visiting the grandparents. They are all safely back.

    Bad news: There’s still a super typhoon barreling straight to where the grandparents live and it’s being billed a “once in a life time storm” which officials saying the death and destruction caused by it will be “Catastrophic”. We tried getting the in-laws to come stay with us but they seem pretty intent in staying put. Please keep the people of Kyushu, which includes tons of family and friends, as they will have to deal with a 8+ hour superstorm.

    Thank you. We tried securing an earlier flight for tomorrow but they won’t cancel the flight until Saturday. If anything, the flight would be postponed by next week. Hoping they can get back by next Wednesday so we can celebrate my oldest daughter’s third birthday.
    Japan is getting hit with a double typhoon this week. One today and one on the weekend. Good news is both aren’t going to be bad where I am at. Bad news is both typhoons are going to hit where my wife, kids, and in-laws are and, if projections are true, the weekend typhoon is going to hit the area hard. They fly back on Sunday and we can’t change or alter the tickets unless they are cancelled due to weather or COVID. Even if they are cancelled, we can’t move the flight up to like Thursday or Friday but have to postpone it sometime next week like Monday or Tuesday. Thankfully, my in-laws house is strong and sturdy and built in a protective area against wind, flooding, and landslides. It survived the devastating Kumamoto 2016 earthquakes but still makes me anxious.

    Father would be Otōsan with the O making it more respectful. It’s the equivalent of father while Tōsan is “dad”. San being an honorific such as Jim-san, Tanaka-san, Sakurai-san, and so on.

    With how the world is now, traveling is pretty much out of the question. However, once things hopefully get resolved, tourism will be booming again. I would recommend looking into this if you intend to travel to Japan. It’s pricey but totally worth it. It gives you unlimited access to any train, subway, ferry, and anything else that’s a JR mode of transportation.

    And while they aren’t accepting new teachers, the JET Programme is one of the best if not the best way to move to Japan and to teach English. That’s how I got my start initially and stayed on for the five years that’s allowed. Mic_128 Mic_128 is also a JET teacher here.

    TheIrepan8 TheIrepan8 Hiya! Just wanted to chime in. Firstly, definitely second getting a JR pass. Very helpful and if you're not staying in just one area, very worth it.

    Secondly, there's definitely a lot of gorgeous, quiet areas all over. I'm placed in a fairly small city of just under 35,000. It's got all the important stuff (GEO, Uniqo, a McDonalds) but still quiet, surrounded by mountains with a great river and plenty of shrines and hiking trails and so on.

    As for Japanese, while awesome you're learning, you can honestly get by with just Google Translate. I still highy recommend it (I'm only learning the basics myself rn, and very jealous of my friends here who know it) but not knowing won't stop you. There's English signs everywhere in the cities and towns and motorways. Don't let your level of language put you off visiting (when it's safe, obvs.) And if you're interested in a longer trip, heavily recommend looking into the JET programme

    Sorry to be late on this but it really is something I could see myself in about 5 years doing. Right now I'm hoping to be working in a library which would be a cool step onward to teaching and boost my confidence.
    Being from Ireland and 23, I'm not sure but it'd be cool to get experience in another country. Just have a long road to improve myself first.
    So I have the house to myself for a couple of days while the kids are visiting family. Hopefully soon, I can post a video tour I took of the house! It’s going to be a unlisted link and I am going to remove it after a couple of days due to privacy.
    Currently watching a show called “Run for Money” in Japan. Basically, various popular tv personalities, singers, athletes, artists, models, etc must survive by being chased by “genetically modified agents”. They must complete tasks or some missions while trying to outrun and survive against 3 or more of these agents. It’s insanely popular and a lot of fun to watch. The agents right now all have hi-tech masks on.


    This one was a 2 hour special back at the start of 2020. It starts off slow but they take time to explain the situation (it’s easy to understand based on graphics) and you also get to watch Japanese commercials.
    Well, the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is officially stepping down from his office after being the longest serving PM in Japanese history. While not confirmed, it’s highly speculated due to illness. He will make an announcement at 5 pm today (in 2 hours). It’s unknown who will succeed him but it’s speculated to be the Deputy PM, Taro Aso, a conservative hardliner, who was PM previously during the early 2000’s. From my observations talking to people, they are blindsided by this news and fairly uncertain due to the nature of the world currently. For those unfamiliar with Japanese politics, PM Abe was the guy who wore a Mario outfit after the ending 2016 Olympic ceremony in Rio to accept the Olympic torch for the now-postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

    Well, for starters, I can’t vote. I may be a Permanent Resident but I need Citizenship to vote. That means giving up my American Citizenship which is something I’ll never do. As for voting, Abe wasn’t actually voted in by the people but won leadership of his party. Once the party was voted by the people, then he became PM. The LDP (Liveral Democratic Party - despite the name is a far-right party) has been in power for over a decade and have largely transformed Japan in to a single party state. You have Abe to thank for that.

    Also, I don’t consider myself a communist and I don’t espouse those ideals. I know of this politician but him and his party tends to do poorly in elections. I’ve heard less than savory rumors with some indicating that he too belongs to his cabal I mentioned but he’s denied it. That being said, the Japanese are especially political and I think many of them are perfectly fine with how the system is currently. Any attempt trying to discuss politics in a casual sense is sure to become an awkward and non-existent conversation.

    Also, while I do appreciate input and advice, I generally don’t allow people to dictate who I should or shouldn’t vote for. I’m pretty solid on my beliefs and have lived most of childhood and early adulthood being told what I should believe, who I should support, and what kind of path I should take.

    I love revisiting game soundtracks I love and I found a new appreciation for Killer Instinct 2013. Not only is the soundtrack amazing but the game is perfectly balanced with amazing and awesome characters. I loved the soundtrack from the beginning but after going back and listening to it again, I’m blown away. I love Doom music (both Mick Gordon) but the KI soundtrack is so diverse but still enough to rock your socks off. One of my favs is still the theme song for Omen/Shadow Jago (despite not even maining them)

    I have a work-mandated health check today. This is something we have to do every year during summer vacation and just a general medical checkup but it’s obviously going be a bit more sensitive due to COVID19.

But one thing I can’t stand about it is that in order to get satisfactory results, we are not to drink alcohol the night before and have to skip out on breakfast and lunch.
