Didn't know anime translators wanted to sound more like intellectuals in their translations.

Raison d'être by Nightmare (Claymore)
Raison d'être by Rie Tanaka (Chobits)

I was also said once in "Kore wa zombie desuka?" by Eucliwood
I'm sure it's used in many other places.

 

It's not the TL wink.gif

I'm short sighted, so if I ever forget my glasses, it's like walking around town with natural photoshop airbrushing on all the girlies. tongue.gif

 

I have transition lenses, so I can perv on girls during the day and they don't know I'm lookin'. ph34r.gif

$156 USD is fairly cheap for frames, mine costed $240 or so.

My mum's and bro's glasses were about ~$800 each to get made, it's a good thing my eyes aren't that bad, yet. tongue.gif
Actually you're quite right tbh. Mine cost around that price too, after currency conversion. Hmm.

It's not the translator, they say it in Japanese. Most translators leave it as is, as well.

Don't know where, but I've seen it used in at least three different animes. When watching it just stroke me as funny how the Japanese fail in the pronunciation of the word.

Already planning to get either one or both, then saw the limitedness of it, then saw the price. Proceed to despair.
For frames they arent really expensive. They look a bit feminine though

So there's this text in ef - a tale of memories OP....

 

 

I googled a few lines and found the full text....

http://feyted.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/the-girl-is-the-only-one-in-the-world/

 

And read it........

DAMN MY LITERARY SKILLS.... I THINK I JUST SPOILED EF - A TALE OF MEMORIES.....

 

So..  If this text does reflect on the plot of Ef (I assume it does.)

Warning: Possible Ef Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Quotes from the text:
...
The girl is the only one in the world. (NOTE: The lonely girl)
...
She painted a boy.
...
The girl began to look at the painting a lot.
...
‘Let’s marry.’
...
she kissed the boy in the painting
...
The girl started drawing self-portraits (NOTE: Other personality or twin sister)
...
Something mysterious happened. The two in those paintings had moved. The god looked inside the paintings. The two in the pictures seemed to be having fun, smiling at each other. (NOTE: NTR'd?????)
...
A strange feeling developed inside her mind. (NOTE: Jealousy)
...
She burned all pictures. (NOTE: HOLY SCHIIT! She Killed'em??)
...
Lastly, the God threw the trash, the only trash left in the world, out from the cliff. (NOTE: Committed suicide by jumping)

Is my Analysis correct?

Anybody seen the new shows that are released yet? Ai Mai Mi and ....Mangirl...

post #47337 of 154198

Something surprised me. I went back to my deviantART after a total absence of 2 months just to upload a new (well not very new because I haven't had the time to upload it) drawing.

Which is this one:

http://vortexblast.deviantart.com/#/d5qdr19

A few moments after uploading, I was surprised that there were already 2 favourites and then 4. Just for kicks, I checked what kind of people has favoured my drawing. Turns out, all 4 of them are women. Just to show what kind of an audience that appreciates my drawing.

I think if I made a manga, I bet 70% of my audience would be girls and the rest, well boys who have a love of shounen-ai stuff perhaps??? 

Funny thing is that I try hard to make my male characters not to look like they came out from a yaoi manga but yet they have a little bit of it.

Yeah, why not.

They're both a few minutes long, gives you something to do when you're bored.

I'm prepared to rate a 10 at this point....
