I thought she was in like 7th...but yeah #AnimeAnatomy indeed.

You should ask the man, those things he made look delicious. Though I'll admit I am quite partial to rhubarb.

 

I saw that Evangelion x Japanese sword exhibition's poster when I was in Osaka. It was being held there at the time. In the end I didn't have time to go...

But my friend who happened to go to Hyougo and Osaka at the time, he did manage to go check that exhibit out. Want me to post pics? I remember he did take some.

 

To be fair one of the girls that I grew up with in the neighborhood had bigger than that in 5th grade.

It's not impossible, it's just rare. (yes, the rest of her body was thin too)

Rhubarb? Nice! Too bad the rhubarb season is already over.
You don't often see this kind of pie in Germany. The ones with the dough on top (no idea how to call that).

Yes, pictures please (if possible) :3

Okaaaay....
But still a lot more common in Anime dimension.
 



Congrats, Mechy!

More free visual novels on Steam! (maybe)

Next, I need to angle my nub in a way sometimes to get the ink to flow. Is this normal?

 

Do I need to ever touch the plunger again once I've filled it? Say push it in a bit to push more ink through or never touch it until I need to refill again?

 

I find that I can't write 'upright' and need to angle my nub. Does this have any ramifications.

 

I find that it works well with script and other 'flowing' writting but is hard at math when you constantly pick the nub up from the paper to start somewhere else.

 

Any tips?

 

Are you completely submerging the nib/tip into the ink?, you need to be submerging part of the "grip" in too (the part where you hold the pen). This is to eliminate any air seeping in while you're filling the pen, maximising your fill, you don't have to do this if you're refilling while out and about, it's a pain to clean off the ink if you're not at home. You don't need to fill the pen all the way, take the nib out of the ink when you have about two or three millimetres left of travel in the piston, pull the nib out of the ink, then fully pull the piston back, this will just take in the excess ink.

 

You'll still get an air air pocket in the pen, so invert the pen by pointing the nib up, and flick ink cartridge a few times to push the air bubble towards the feed, push and pull the piston slightly to take in the excess ink and to create a bubble path, then, push the piston to bleed out the feed. You'll see little bubbles start to bleed out along the edge where the nib meets the grip with a little bit of ink, you can slowly pull the piston back for a bit so the ink doesn't spill, then keep pushing until no more air bubbles come out. Back off *slightly* (~1/8 of a turn) to pull back some of the excess ink, or you can just start writing, but be careful not to get ink on your fingers. :p

 

It's perfectly fine to write at an angle, the pen will feel more scratchy if you're writing with it perpendicularly to the paper, and the ink won't flow as easily, you'll get used to it.

 

And yeah, you'll get an air pocket growing in the cartridge while writing, sometimes you wont though, and the piston will follow the ink level, this used to happen a lot on my old pen.

 

If you're having feed problems, it's okay repeat the bleeding process, I do it all the time, it takes 10 seconds once you're used to it. Your ink and paper choice does play a large role in this, I tend to need the nib charged up for any 'smooth' paper I come across.

Ok thanks! That is what I thought after playing with it some more. :)

 

Thanks for the help guys! And no, I am never buying another fountain pen, this hobby is way more expensive with less returns for me than headphones even.

You really only need the one pen though, the hobby is in buying a new ink every 6 months depending on how much writing you do, it's not tooooo expensive at all. :p

Shes in fifth grade. Just reconfirmed it in episode 1.

And rhubarb being super expensive D:
Those kind of pie are pretty common here. The nice ones have a weaved top. No idea what they are called either, to me its just pie biggrin.gif as long as it tastes good idc!! XD

Kk remind me to ask the guy for the pics. He sent them to me before but i had to delete a bunch of things on pc. It was kind of a weird exhibit. At least the evangelion version part.
Speaking of which, in May there was a special 9 patty burger at a burger chain store in Japan that comes with a Longinus's spear... in the form of a fork! (Actual stainless steel fork not plastic).

I cant disagree with you. Only in anime you get loli with breasts that should break their backs. Its stupid.

Nice review.
You wrote memory foam wire somewhere. Are you sure that this is right? Never heard of a cable that has foam involved in any shape or form.

After reading your sound description, I did not really expect that they get a 8,5/10. More like a 7,5 or 8.
Or is the rating based on the SQ you get for the price?

I'm not digging the dreary grey background panda-sama, it's depressing.

 

There's also a typo on the Author section on the right, it should be 'writing'. :p

Any tips?

Parker Quink, got a bottle of that as well. Pretty OK ink, but I feel it's not wet enough for two of my pens, whereas my other ink (right now Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku) is too wet for the other two.

As for writing with math, it truly depends on the pen/ink/paper/writing style combination. You may want a slightly wetter ink / wetter pen, since you're going to be doing a lot of raising the nib. I have one pen which absolutely can't math, but my most expensive and most used pen I've bough in particular for using math and I find it much nicer than any ball point I've ever tried to do math with. I tried out lots of pens at a pen store and if I wouldn't have done that I'd probably be much less satisfied with what I'd bought, since it would never occur to me to even look at the pen I'm now using 5+ hours a day.

Also I don't know about you, but whenever I do math it's much more 'word' than 'symbol'. But maybe that's just the case when doing more abstract math where the you need to write down exactly what you're doing instead of just jotting down algebra.

For example here is a sample of some group theory work. This is far from being my best handwriting of course.





Furthermore regarding the angle at which you hold your pen: you should really try experimenting with this. The most natural to me is an approximate 45 degree angle, but I also have an italic pen which changes how bold it writes with pen angle (as well as ink flow unfortunately).

Good thing I still have some Matcha left.

Otherwise this cake would end up being way too expensive biggrin.gif

Also: New Non Non Biyouri ♥

I too have 2-3 table spoons of matcha left. Hmmm.
I want to make this, but I already planned to make apfelstrudel for next week instead. Maybe something for sometime else. I'll save the recipe biggrin.gif

This.
And adjusting writing style is important as well. You probably need to learn to put much less pressure than with a ball pen, and it's more favorable to use your shoulders to write instead of your fingers. Try this if you're not used to it: hold your pen in your hands in a natural way and then do not move your fingers or your wrist, keep them in fixed orientation at all costs. Then start writing by moving your entire arm using your elbow as a hinge. Practicing this until it became natural gave a huge improvement to my hand writing, as well as giving me the ability to write longer since it uses less energy this way.

I never have trouble with air bubbles in my cartridge. I always just fill it up like normal and then extend the piston out a tiny amount and retract it again. Doing that is in my experience enough.

This.

Although despite the fact that I write a lot (I finish an 80 sheet (160 pages) A4 notebook in about 18 days), I only need ink about every 6 months. I guess it also depends on how much ink the pen uses.

You should implement a pictures gallery and as deadlylover-senpai pointed out, you also could use a more interesting background.
