I was plodding through one more hour of homework at my study desk when I heard my sister's playful voice.

"Hey big brother. Whatcha up to?" Julie said as she leaned into my room.

"Killing myself with calculus."

"Calculus? School's almost out for the year! You've got to stop studying so hard Tim-bo, you make me look bad with your straight A-s."

She was on her way up from tanning in the back yard and had on one of her skimpy bikinis.
The sight of her petite, sexy frame in that flimsy suit was a welcome break from my studies.

"Besides, I need an opinion on my new tan." She continued as she pulled one side of her bikini top over to show her small, evenly tanned breast.
I noted the lack of tan lines. She'd been sun bathing topless as usual. She must have put the top on just to make a show of flashing herself to me.

"Got to think about college Jules, but I'll gladly take a break to check out a sexy body." I said as I eyed her exposed tit.

"Aw, Tim, You really think my body's sexy?" she asked and released the cup of her bikini top which slid back over but caught on her now erect nipple keeping her exposed.
She slid her hands down her tummy and hips seductively, stopping to work her fingers under the hem of her bikini bottom and pull it up tight into her slit.

Oh hi! everybody. I just went to

http://qb5.2ch.net/test/read.cgi/operate/1208671133/l50

and requested to create a new board for English chat and somebody
introduced this board, however, I don't feel like fitting in this place.
I am a serious person who loves to talk about philosophy...but is this a serious place?
Actually I am self studying english and feel the urgent needs to
pratice my enligh by writing such a board...but Chat in English in
the English board is ruined so badly. So I escaped from there.
does anyone here? and what type of residents are here?

A sharp increase in drugs and cellphones found inside a Brazilian prison mystified officials -- until guards spotted some distressed pigeons struggling to stay airborne.

Inmates at the prison in Marilia, Sao Paulo state had been training carrier pigeons to smuggle in goods using cell phone sized pouches on their backs, a low-tech but ingenious way of skipping the high-tech security that visitors faced.

"We have sophisticated equipment to search people when they go in, but they avoided this by finding another way to bring in cellphones and drugs," prison director Luciano Gamateli told Globo TV."

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2194359/A-quarter-of-adults-to-face-%27anti-paedophile%27-tests.html

The launch of a new Government agency will see 11.3million people vetted for any criminal past before they are approved to have contact with children aged under 16.

But the increase in child protection measures is so great it is "poisoning" relationships between the generations, according to respected sociologist Professor Frank Furedi.

In a report for think tank Civitas, he said the use of criminal records bureau checks to ensure the safety of children and vulnerable adults has created an atmosphere of suspicion.

As a result ordinary parents - many of whom are volunteers at sports and social clubs - now find themselves regarded "potential child abusers".

Are you implying all Japanese women are the same?

Just because one of them likes European men, that doesn't
mean that they all do.

Thank you for your response.
They said they were on "KENTA MATSURI", which literaly means "Kentucky fried chicken festival".
"KENTA" is Japanese abrebiation of "Kentucky".
and the clothing: happi is always worn in festivals in Japan.

By the way, it seems that there are few people here.

What's Kyoto like? Is it a nice place to live?

73 :maji:2008/08/24(Sun) 11:37:58 ID:Bh9oPAbI0
KYOTO is a very good plce to visit as tourists.
There are many traditional places and shops which have old atomosphere.
However, It is a bit difficult place to live.
It's very muggy in summer, not as convenient as OSAKA, commodity prices are bit high.
People don't say things straightly. Now, I think I can guess what they really want to say.
I am satisfied to live here.


74 :maji:2008/08/24(Sun) 14:59:31 ID:0LsKfKyk0
What's the scenery like in Kyoto? Is it very pretty?
Are there a lot of plants?

75 :maji:2008/08/24(Sun) 15:36:21 ID:g3cnC9By0
KYOTO itself is surrounded by mountains. It has lots of forest and plants though it is also a big city.
I think KYOTO is a sort of eclectic city.
There are also a lot of Buddhist temples.
Some are tourist spots and crowded. But there are still some serene spots as well.

I live in the southern part of San Jose, which is pure suburbia.
It's very pretty. There aren't any forests or anything like that, but there are a lot of trees and other flora planted all around...
I live near a school and a drug store, so all my life, I've only needed to ride a bike.

As for the weather, there doesn't seem to be a spring or autumn.
Things only change from one extreme to the other.

81 :maji:2008/08/26(Tue) 00:16:30 ID:2xf4LeU30
I hope you don't find 2ch too rude and put off by things Japanese;
I once traveled California, and I remember that the weather there was always nice.
No wonder people from the west coast are always good at sports:)

82 :maji:2008/08/26(Tue) 12:46:25 ID:aFKSzodc0
Are they good at sports? To be honest, I never noticed.
I don't really pay attention to that sort of thing.
It's kind of embarrassing to admit that...

What is "aru" and "nai" on nicovideo?

90 :maji:2008/09/04(Thu) 15:18:32 ID:VR0XEjTw0
>>88
Jun-chan has great hair.

I admire Koizumi for being such a maverick.

One thing I strongly agree with him on is his stance on the military. Japan needs to destroy Article 9.
Fuck Article 9. Times have changed since the Constitution was written.

Also, Koizumi had Rozen Aso in his cabinet!

91 :maji:2008/09/04(Thu) 15:43:39 ID:8UXTMGqE0
>>89
"aru"means "exist".
If there is something, we can say "aru".
"nai" is the opposite.

>>90
In my opinion, I agree with you.
There are some people, however, believe Japan is not attacked by foreign countries because of the article 9.
It is a very controversial matter.
I feel that they can't change any articles in our Constitution in this situation.

92 :maji:2008/09/04(Thu) 22:08:14 ID:VR0XEjTw0
>>91
But why would you comment "aru"/"nai" on a video?


Japan isn't being attacked because America is always in the spotlight.
When Japan becomes more powerful, others will want a piece of the cake.
Having an army, instead of an SDF, would be more of a deterrent. Japan's
enemies don't attack because they have no reason to fear Japan attacking first,
but when Japan's power increases, there will be someone provoking Japan to go

It doesn't help that the Constitution is perpetual. It's stupid that the Allies
thought world peace could be achieved through forcing people to give up their
ability to wage war.

I can truely agree with you.
Unfortunately, public opinion in Japan doesn't.

In terms of "aru" or "nai" question, I can't tell. Because I did not see the video.

I can see youtube, but can't see nicovideo.

Without making account, I can't see.
Can you?

Could you give me the address?
If it is not the same as the one I think.

>>95
Oh. Yeah, you need an account.
The video in question is: http://www.nicovideo.jp/?p=beginner_watch_1
But there's no need to check it out. I was just curious.

BTW, why is Japan so obsessed with Ronald McDonald? I love the MADs on nicovideo.
You can see some on Youtube, too. Search for "donarudo" (in katakana), if you're interested.

97 :maji:2008/09/05(Fri) 16:01:55 ID:EUTAUygm0
>>96
I saw some in youtube.
Fmmm... What can I say? I could not but smile bitterly.
I think there are two reasons why Japanese like Ronald.
Firstly, it's very popular character. Every body knows him.
Secondly, because it's specific character, having very highlighted expression, it's easy to trifle with him.
Then many people find it's funny.
Sorry, it's just my guess.


I took a picture in my neighborhood. A shop in a local mall.

That's cool. There is nothing like that where I live.
Everywhere is full of strip malls here.
http://images.google.com/images?q=strip%20mall They all look the same!

I would like to visit Japan one day. One place I'd really like to go to
is Akihabara because I'm a huge anime fan and computer geek.

99 :maji:2008/09/06(Sat) 01:14:44 ID:+NFx7Cli0
Because Japan is becoming "car society", many of local malls have much less customers.
It's very tough time for those small shopping mall.
On the other hand, the number of big shopping center like strip mall is becoming larger.
The wal-mart owns one big chain of super market in Japan.

Well, it is 1:13 at mid night in Japan now.
I'm going to bed.
See you later!

Hi! I got up.

Differnt shop at the same mall.
I felt the way in which broiled fish are displayed is nice.

Unfortunately, I have never been to Akihabara.
I was anime fan when I was a kid. Anime at that time was "Youkai ningen Bem" ,"Devil Man", "Uchu Senkan Yamato", etc.

I am still reading shonen-jump every Monday. Naruto is very intersting. But I have never saw anime Naruto.

I thought cars were popular in the country, but everyone prefers public transportation in the city?
Where I live, you need a car to go anywhere. There is no public transportation for miles, and the only way out is via highway.

>>100
I don't follow Naruto. I prefer slice of life anime, like Hidamari Sketch, which is one of my favorites.

I usually use a browser which specialize to see 2-chan. Its name is "Jane Doe style".
That is why I don't see those buttuns. Today, I checked them using IE. But I can't tell what are those.
Maybe I can ask someone else. Please wait without expectation.

VIP
http://yutori.2ch.net/news4vip/

is one of the most crowded board including various people. I mean rude, childish, assertive people.
VIP is also called garbage can of 2-chan.

I guess there are a lot of NEET, or temp staffer who can't find something intersting in their real life but in 2-chan.


>>103
I've just taken a look at that board.
I need a lot of effort to read. I don't want to try and spend time to understand what is written.
Most Japanese people don't care, because they can't read English or at least difficult to understand.

Or you could say that VIP is like the equivalent of DQN on 4-ch.net...

DQN was borrowed by 4-ch. It's rarely used on 4chan or other imageboards, maybe once in a while in /jp/.

BRZ is an abbreviation of bronze. PLT for platinum and DIA? for diamond.

There is a point system in 2-chan. It is called "be-point".
You cannot buy Be-point. You can get the point from someone else who felt that your article was interesting.
There is another point called "MORITAPO", which you can buy or you can earn by other measure such as answering questionair.
You can give someone Be-point by consuming MORITAPO.
Members are classified by their Be-point into Bronze, Platinum, etc.
When you press the butoon BRZ, you can hide the respons written by people whose point don't reach Bronze.
The buttun 2BP is for all the res.
I think 2BP stands for "2-chan Be-point".

You're welcome. I'm happy to help. I can understand you fine.

I would like to learn Japanese, but I hear it takes a lot of dedication. Kanji look daunting to learn!
I don't know how Japanese are able to memorize thousands of kanji, their strokes, their meanings, pronunciation... What a language!

I know that learning kanji is divided into different grades at school. Does this mean a 2nd grader is unable to understand 3rd grade Japanese?
Are 5th graders unable to read a newspaper? Doesn't it make communication difficult having to remember all the kanji?

I know very few kanji, and it appears that Japanese is easy if you know it all.


What do Japanese people find difficult about English?


>>117
lol, that video is both amusing and depressing at the same time.

> I know that learning kanji is divided into different grades at school. Does this mean a 2nd grader is unable to understand 3rd grade Japanese?
> Are 5th graders unable to read a newspaper? Doesn't it make communication difficult having to remember all the kanji?

Actually, 2nd grader can't understand kanji which is supposed to be learnt in 3rd grade unless they do extra study.
I don't think that the 5th graders can't read a news paper. They don't use difficult kanji in passages for kids.
And they frequently put small hiragana alongside with the kanji in order to make kids being able to read.



> I know very few kanji, and it appears that Japanese is easy if you know it all.

Japanese don't necessarily know all kanji. It is said that you need to know 2000 kanjis to read a newspaper.


Construction of sentences is very difficult. Tense as well. We don't have the tense; present perfect, and past pafect.
Article. We often forget to add a, an, the. And one of the most difficult thing is different ideas of choosing words and frases.
I can't tell everything.

The other day, I watched CNN news. It's difficult for me to understand.
A reporter asked a question to a state soldier when the hurricane gustav was hitting.
I was not able to catch even a word from the soldier. orz.


120 :maji:2008/09/09(Tue) 14:29:58 ID:JO8DDb7p0
>>119
So if you know the 2,000 kanji, you're fluent? What do Japanese find most difficult about learning Japanese?

Tenses can be tricky. The way I deal with tenses, if I'm confused, is to just use a short sentence for each event.
I find that rewording sentences is helpful if my sentence appears confusing. I'm not sure if Japanese offers the same flexibility, but in English
there are many ways to construct a sentence. If you're unsure about a sentence, you might want to try and write it differently than to try to fix it.

I can see how articles are tough. For example, in your post, you would either say "the hurricane" or "Hurricane Gustav". I believe it depends on whether
you're referencing a common noun or a proper noun.
Another example, "I'm posting on 2channel." (proper noun, no 'the') or "I'm posting on the Japanese forum." (common noun (forum)). You
would only use 'the' with a proper noun if it was part of the name. If 2channel was called "The 2channel", you would say "I'm posting on The 2channel."

Something I've noticed about Japanese speaking English is that they tend to speak more complicated than necessary.
Their vocabulary is good, but it may not be appropriate for conversational use.
For example, while "it seems that I am the only recent Japanese" is ok, you might find it easier to use "I'm the only Japanese here."
Yes, information is lost, but you're still conveying a similar message.
I think this is similar in Japanese. Instead of saying "watashi wa gaijin desu" it would be more natural to say "gaijin desu."

I can barely keep up with karaoke in anime music. The kanji always make me lose my timing, haha.


I hope my advice helps. I'm not an English teacher, I haven't had an English grammar class in years, some of this stuff I find difficult to explain,
and I might have mistakes of my own. What I write isn't perfect, but I hope you can get a better understanding of English.

> What do Japanese find most difficult about learning Japanese?

Daily conversation is not difficult for us of course.
In terms of kanji, one of my homework was to write 100 different kanjis a day all through the year in the elementary school.
It's difficult for even some grownups to choose right expressions, honorific, humble, or ordinary.
Some people can't use this kind of plite expressions because they don't use their daily life.

Do you sing songs reading Japanese subtitles in karaoke?
That's amazing!

That is a good way to practice listening.

I'm not much of a singer! I prefer to listen to others.
I like Japanese music mostly because I can't understand it. I like a lot of foreign music for that reason.
I do feel happy when I'm able to recognize some words or phrases, though!

When I watch parts of Japanese TV, I am lost because of how fast people speak.
I find the Japanese captions helpful. Even though I don't know most kanji, I like their look.

However, Japanese pronunciation is very simple for me. I have studied a few languages and Japanese has the easiest pronunciation.
I am fond of the use of syllabic systems.


That is a nice beetle. I like the coloring.

A new game show is on TV in the US. It is called "Hole in the Wall."
It is based on a game in "Tonneruzu no Minasan no Okage deshita" where contestants must fit through a moving wall.

American contestants are so fat, they break the wall but do not fall in the water lol.
http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/3327/hitwrx7.jpg
But when they do fall in, they make a huge splash and sink to the bottom. Sometimes lifeguards pull them out.

What are some good Japanese game shows? I like ones that have many absurd physical challenges.
"Fuun! Takeshi-jo" is one of my favorites. Are there any shows these days that are similar?
What time (JST) and what channel are they on?

It is interesting that some TV shows in the US modeled after Japanese show.
Takeshi-jo was very funny.
But that sort of shows are no longer very popular, I'm afraid.
I can think of just one show Tokyo Friend Park 2.
It's not as absurd as Takeshijo.

Quiz shows are very popular now.

What on TV is popular in Japan?
In America, shows like Lost, House, and 24 are what everyone watches.
There are also "reality TV" shows, like American Idol, which I find boring.
But I don't watch a lot of TV. I download anime for entertainment, haha.
The only thing I sometimes watch is the news.

Which reminds me.. What's going on in Japan recently?
I hear Aso Taro has a good chance of becoming the next PM.
I also saw there is some sumo wrestler who sounds very apologetic. What's the story behind that?

They cannot read the Chinese character learned at elementary school, either. hahahaha....!

Sorry, I have been very busy recently. I couldn't post for a several days.

About sumo wrestlers.
Three sumo wrestlers were sucked.
Firstly, a Russian sumo wrestler was arrested because he had a package of cannabis and some stuffs for smoking cannabis.
Because of the incident, the sumo association examined all the wrestlers' urine.
Reaction of cannabis was detected from two of them.They are both Russian.
Though they insist their innocense, they refused to turn in specimen of the urine for the next test.
Then they were also fired.

I shall be watching it every week.
I recognized the "Stopper Cubridge" game because I saw part of it a few weeks ago before I went to work.

I also watched part of Wide Scramble. I only managed to see the presenter read parts of the newspaper and ANN News.
I saw Oshita Yoko! Is she the reason why Wide Scramble is so popular? It's a news show, right? I don't see why it is so popular.


>>151
Thanks. I'm going to watch Hexagon. I've heard about game shows that test their contestants' knowledge of kanji.
This is quite peculiar. There are no game shows here that test people's knowledge of words, for example,
nor do they test their arithmetic skills.

To answer your questions, I am interested in technology (mainly computers) and science, as well as Japanese culture.
I find it interesting how Japanese culture is so different, from the importance of hierarchies to the love for the absurd
which I have not seen anywhere else (sadly, nobody would ever make a Tokyo Friend Park 2 in the West). I am also a big fan
of anime and manga, though I watch more anime than I read manga. I am a hardcore geek.

I am not sure what you mean by figure. If you mean who I like, I like various anime characters; they're mostly schoolgirls lol.
Two of my favorite anime and manga are "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni" and "Hidamari Sukecchi." I like the shounen, seinen, comedy, and
daily life genres.


>>152
That's no problem. I hope you're feeling better.
What type of work do you do, if you don't mind my asking?


Also, I have seen a few mistakes in some posts. If anyone needs help with their English, feel free to ask. I don't
want to correct people and annoy them, but I'll be happy to help if anyone is studying English.

Oshita Yoko is the reason why Wide Scramble is so popular.
But it's only my individual view!
You might as well look at "Wide Scramble " from your own view.

Oh!! Do you like anime characters? Especially highschoolgirls lol? It's wonderful!!
You should like Sailor Moon!! and Magical Princess, Sisido Hikaru, and Ilir!!

By the way, Have you seen the things like ribbons drifting lightly around these figures?

Well, If the history is traced, this is one of the holy implements which appears in Chinese myth.
This takes forms various now, and will be as a tool which adorns anime and figure characters.

I'm glad if you took to Tokyo Friend Park 2.

I do a job in which I grab a steeringwheel.
Is this sentence natural ?

Ah, lol! Yeah, I prefer anime schoolgirls. I know Sailor Moon, it is popular here
among anime fans because many people grew up watching it, like Dragonball Z.

I have seen many characters who wear ribbons, like Haruhi, for example. That
is some interesting history.

I like shows about school life, like "Azumanga Daioh," "Clannad," and "Minami-ke."


>>155
I understood your sentence just fine, there is nothing wrong with it.

If you wanted to, you could use a common phrase like "on the road."
For example, "my job requires me to be on the road."

how about jdramas? I'm American so I've only seen Nobuta wo Produce and Densha Otoko. Nobuta wo Produce is amazing and could be my favorite show of all time, American or Japanese.

I watched Hexagon and I enjoyed it. I only saw the first part because I had to go to work.
Even though I barely understood it, watching the contestants was fun.


What has the weather been like recently? I saw on the news a few days ago that there was a typhoon approaching,
and I remember that a couple of months ago there was a heatwave. Are any of you going to be affected by the typhoon? Stay safe.
Over here in the Southeastern US, it is starting to get cooler, which is typical of September. Today was the first day I noticed
a cold morning. The days are also getting shorter.

Yeah, Typhoon NO.13 is approaching to the Kansai region wher I live.
It's cloudy and occasionally rainy.

Thank you for your telling the common phrase "to be on the road".
"Grab a steeringwheel" is just direct translation of a Japanese phrase.

I think there are some misunderstanding about the word "figure" in Japanese Otaku world.
This kind of dolls are called figure in Japan.

Please look at this site as well.

Not only girl dolls but also anime heroes, etc. are called figure.

OK. Here are photos of my figures:

English uses the word "figure" in the same way as Japanese. I just didn't understand the way >>151 used it.
I usually think of having figure collections as being part of an anime/manga fan.


I saw the news today. There was a strange story about Kim Jong-il and a video of someone who looks like him using a cell phone.
If my kanji knowledge is correct, this man was in China. Can someone explain the story for me? I couldn't find any coverage
of this story on American news sites.

I also saw the Kim Jong-il's news on TV or newspaper.
But It may be not reported in Japan that more detailed than in U.S.

Iremembered by the name of Kim... I am a great fan of Kim Yu-na the figure skate player.
Although an genius player the name of Asada Mao is in Japan, I like Kim better than Asada.
At next Winter Olympic, I want her to win a gold medal!!

What do you think about Kim?

It is one of the pleasure for me not only to collect, but to remake them.
Because, In many cases, it is a commercial figure with which I am not pleased in the state as it is.
It is the vest hobby for me to remodel it into the form with which I am pleased.

Which Kim are you asking about?
I don't really care about Kim Jong-il, I am more concerned about Japan's self defense.
I don't know Kim Yu-na.

Yeah, garage kit figures have better quality than store-bought figures. There are some that
I'd like, but I don't have the skill nor the patience to assemble them. I'd be pissed off if I messed up.
If I could find a reputable garage kit assembler, that would be great. All the quality of a figure kit
with the convenience of a store-bought figure! Also, garage kits are very expensive. That annoys me too.

How many of you were brought up by Native english parents or guardians?
I've always been curious in finding out whether the Japanese really are simply excellent at studying and understanding foreign languages, or if there were other forces at work, so to speak.

On an unrelated note, how many hours schooling do you receive dedicated to the study of the English language, and more importantly do you receive any outside tutoring or home schooling at a young age?

Don't forget to vote for ASO TARO on 9/24! Japan needs an otaku with guts in office!

>>173
From what I've heard, Japanese society is tough. You have to perform well in many subjects, or become NEET/hikikomori/suicidal.
Cram schools are popular in Japan. Many parents send their kids to cram schools to better prepare them for entrance
exams for certain schools.

But it would be interesting to hear this from the Japanese point of view. It seems studying hard has become an alien concept in the US.

175 :maji:2008/09/24(Wed) 04:40:29 ID:0RLEOBG30
This seems to be the case within the UK aswell. It takes little effort from parents until they are branded as "too pushy"
I believe this puts much too much pressure on UK teachers, as they are really the only people in children's and adolescent's lives who will actually end up motivating them.
This is probably why the standard of teaching is so variable from school to school, and possibly why there are so many stupid sub-cultures within UK society, revolving around violence and what can only be descibed as an alpha-CHILD complex.

176 :maji:2008/09/24(Wed) 12:04:35 ID:SOYMeuNx0
Personally, I think the US needs more "hard work ethic."

177 :maji:2008/09/24(Wed) 14:14:41 ID:0RLEOBG30
It would help, but those who knuckle down and actually work hard in school are benefitting from a considerably smaller skilled workforce, even if you include rising population figures.

So i guess it works out fairly in the end :)

Congratulations to the newly-elected Prime Minister Aso!
You picked the right choice, Japan, now become naturalized Americans and sort out our mess!

Aso was elected Prime Minister in the House of Representatives, and Ozawa was elected Prime Minister in the House of Councilors. But Aso was chosen by regulation of the constitution of Japan.

Noda Seiko was also chosen as one of new cabinet members. According to my prediction, Noda will be the first Prime Minister as a woman someday.
Will Aso worship at the Yasukuni shrine on August 15, next year?
According to my prediction, he wont do it.

I'd be surprised if Aso didn't visit the Yasukuni shrine.
From what I know about him, he either enjoys or doesn't care about the controversy he creates.
But he seems to be a hard worker, I saw he wants to make sure Japan's economy can withstand the
problems from America. How has he been so far?

One interesting thing I read is that the manga industry has seen an increase in popularity
due to Aso! However, I thought reading manga was already common in Japan?

That is a news to me! Where did you hear the news that Aso contributed to development of Manga industry?

Surely the Japanese male of the generation of Aso often reads Manga. Probably, Aso himself is also reading Manga.
But Is it some mistakes that a certain relevance is between Aso and Manga industry ?
I think that Aso is only a reader that sometimes reads comics.

Why does American Comics have lot of words in a frame? and Why does it begin from left-hand side? Isn't it hard to read?






188 :152:2008/09/26(Fri) 20:02:49 ID:ePknC+ow0
>>185
Yes, it is very common.
Though many people read manga in trains when they did commute in the past, more people look at their mobile phones these days.

Incidently, I read shonen jump, young magazine, young animal, shonen sunday, shonen magazine, and shonen champion in a convenience store
without buying them.
