Yeah, I know I've been gone from this forum for like, what, 1 month? Summer vacation started so I shouldn't even be this inactive.
By the way, I've been teaching myself Japanese for the last month and know about 100 words, some Hiragana, and basic sentence structure. Infact, I've made some dialogues with two people using Hiragana. Quite fun I say.
Here's an example (I don't know unicodes so don't kill me for it):
Tokoro de doko desuka?
Urusai. (Or usse, fits)
(Wish I could've made this one longer. Practice makes better, or so they say.)
Where is your place?
Um... I don't know.
Feel free to correct me, and help me if you want. Might be fun talking to each other in Romaji.
I'm learning Japanese for the sake of crapload of animes and games I have. I wish my connection got faster... 40KBPS download speed does not look good when you want to download 1.4 terabytes of data-ness.
Here's an example of SOME Japanese games I have:
Melty Blood Re-Act Final Tuned
Touhou 7, 7.5, and 8. (Awesomeness)
Baldr Bullet Revellion (Hentai game, but it's actually pretty awesome.)
While I was gone, I think I've downloaded around 70GB in two months. Hate the slow damned speed. The Japanese Learning pack I'm getting is 12.4 GB and waiting 5 full days for it to complete is just too slow...
Anyways, yeah, that's pretty much the reason why I'm learning Japanese. Since I don't have killer hardware to play Starcraft II and the such, I've gone with the Japanese games. Most are actually fun AND original, unlike the American crappified consumer products, where just about everything is sold for eye-candy quality.
Time to watch Azumangah Daioh. Just finished.
