Yeah, that's pretty much the way I have it Sir Integra (haha, I think you have a new username for every day of the year now pretty much), but only recently that I took some names off of the list. I forgot about the option on here though -- I just never thought about it. Hmm, I'm sure there are quite a number of people who put themselves up there on the post radar.

Yeah, what is the point of AOTS anyway? The only time I got interested in that show was when they were doing the weeklong special on Japan. But even that was mediocre because they were showing how much THEY were having fun over there. They didn't show too much of the culture and the language.

Logos and Nelrith, I'm not sure what methods you are using to type in Japanese text, but I use the Language Bar to switch from Japanese to English and vice versa. Nelrith, you used the wrong kanji for the "NI" part of "nihongo" in your sentence. You used the kanji for ME or "eyes."

Oops, seems I neglected this thread for a bit. Anyway, Fooly -- this is the exact phrase:

Konnichiwa, Barente to moushimasu. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu. You don't need the douzo. That word sounds too textbook, and you will probably get laughed at if you said that to a Japanese person.

Congratulations to you Kyoku, and let me know if you need help with anything, ok? (or anyone else for that matter)

During the past 830 days that I have been here:

-- I was admin here for about a week before voluntarily stepping down (I don't believe I was Local or Full at any time though)
-- posted 165 times (including this one)
-- witnessed quite a few "disagreements" among members
-- help Xeo with a few odds and ends with the board and with the site (mostly minor though, nothing major)

Well, not as much excitement as you DarkSlaya, but it has been an interesting ride nonetheless.

Wow, I love the random banners showing up now -- so far I've seen 4 different ones pop up. The Street Fighter one is really well done though.

It would be the second one you have there Kyoku -- that is hiragana. That phrase is usually written in hiragana. But the phrase would be:

どうもありがとうございます。

And the correct spelling for "goodbye" is: さようなら。 Although I have seen it spelling without the "u" sound, the official spelling (and correct pronunciation) is with the "u" sound.

Also a word about "senpai" -- it does not only have the feeling of superiors. It could also have the feeling of "sensei" as well.

I am so glad you are typing in Japanese now Kyoku -- がんばりつづけてみましょうね!

I've only gone through Kyoto, I haven't stayed there for any length of time. I plan on going there next year when I go back to Japan for my schooling. October 2007 to June 2008 is my planned time to be in Japan. I wanted to do this before I turned 30, but since I've already spent a large amount of money going to Japan already, I have to wait a bit now. (If I can't make the 2007-08 year, I will DEFINITELY make the 2008-09 year.)

Wow, another fellow Japanese learner. Welcome to XGF, waggie. I, myself, like all things Japanese have been studying the language for the past 3 years. Eventually, I plan on being an interpreter/translator but that I will take a lot of work and I don't mind that one bit. How long have you been studying Japanese? Have you been to Japan before? Is so, when and did you have fun?

None that I can think of. I pretty much know how much money I am going to be spending for this -- somewhere in the neighborhood of about $21,000. I MIGHT be able to trim about $2,000 off at most, but I seriously doubt it.

$6,930 for tuition for period of October 2007 to June 2008
$1,000 for plane ticket (When I went to Japan this year, I only paid $770 for my plane ticket. I got my ticket from here and I will most likely be buying from them again.)
$1,500 for personal expenses including food and odds and ends for 3 semesters
$800 per month for housing for a total of 9 months
$800 for transportation for the nine months (I am probably off on this amount since I haven't fully investigated the transportation options and since I haven't found the area where I am going to reside yet.)
$500 for the visa (again, haven't investigated this fully, just a budgeted amount)

$20,930 TOTAL EXPENSES

haha, I like what it says in the little caption on the left side of the pick: "sawatte ii yo." Translation: "It's okay if you touch." (lit: "touching is good") lol

Edit: I don't know why the top part of my layout got huge. Removed layout.

Mmm, I thought it was because you wanted to see your post count go up by one everytime you hid that "submit reply" button, lol. But yeah, if you stay at a place long enough, you get used to certain people being there. Nudity is definitely a highlight if you want to stay on this forum.

It really depends on how often you study and how quickly you "grasp" the meanings of the kanji. Knowing kanji means knowing the readings (whether the ON or the KUN readings), example words, and sentence usage. Also, learning how to write each one works too. So depending on how dedicated you are to doing all of these things is how quickly you will learn them. Now, the way I learn is by writing them down, making flash cards, using kanji software for both the PS2 and DS, playing games in total Japanese, reading manga and books in Japanese, practicing with kanji drill books . . . yeah, I'm dedicated. Japanese is my life -- I can see myself doing anything else. I think I know around 700 kanji and can write about 300 of them. I working on trying to write the ones I know.

I'm in the same boat as True Flight. I've seen some pics on After Effects and I'm impressed with what it can do. What I would like to do is piece together different clips and add subtitles (to existing clips) with special or fancy fonts (whether in Japanese or English). If Pinnacle or After Effects and do these, I will be looking for them.

* reads Shaddow's title * lol

Yes, I try to play Parasite Eve once in a while because I like the graphics, the battles, and the music. Typically, I level up to about 70 before beating the game. I have even completed the "extra" dungeon. Parasite Eve 2 I have played about an hour into it, but I don't own the game. I should go out and search for it somewhere.

That was a very well put-together post there Katana. I, myself, have been around here since the MoD days. I've never really been an active person on here, but I do come by here everyday. Besides my own board, this is perhaps the board that I visit the most. Posts are entertaining, and almost everyone here I know. I usually go through the game threads or stick around general when I come by. Recently though, I enjoyed helping a few people with their Japanese. That is always something I am willing to do. I hope this board sticks around for a long time to come.

My hair, on the other hand, is easy to get curly when it gets longer. That's why I always keep it short -- I cut it about once every six weeks.

Wouldn't say looooong...s'pecially since its not thick, so it doesn't look as good as one would imagine. :p
From the pictures that I have seen of you Kat, I am sure you wouldn't have any problems making your hair look good.

Oh wow, seeing those archives brings back a lot of memories. Maybe you can find a way to break the index up into 2 columns, like Ace's -- only have it as a choice in your profiles. But then, you'd probably have to find a way to shorten up the descriptions of each of the forums. *shrugs* Also, the forums themselves seem fine to me, no complaints here.

Wow, how did I miss this thread? Two things though:

(1) In the title, if you're referring to the Japanese alcoholic beverage, then the correct spelling is "sake" (酒、さけ), but I always hear the the pronunciation with an "i", lol.

(2) In the sentence "I went to the movies with my friends", TP probably has the most natural of saying it, because you don't need to say "watashi" at the beginning of every sentence. If you have already stated yourself somewhere in the convo, you don't need to keep saying it. So here are a few ways you can say it:

Watashi wa tomodachi to eiga wo mimashita.
わたしはともだちとえいがをみました。
私は友達と映画を見ました。

Tomodachi to eiga wo mimashita.
ともだちとえいがをみました。
友達と映画を見ました。

Watashi wa tomodachi to eiga wo mi ni ikimashita.
わたしはともだちとえいがをみにいきました。
私は友達と映画をみに行きました。


By the way, the word for "movie theater" would be eigakan (映画館、えいがかん)
