What are you playing now?
(1855 posts, 161907 views) Posted: 195d 23h, 7m ago by jptranslator_girl in Games
Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2. It's okay so far, but I still maintain that I like the first game better. Maybe I'll retract that statement once I've finished the entire game.

I'm also playing Knock Knock and Amnesia on Steam. ...

What's Your Native Language?
(182 posts, 8428 views) Posted: 334d 17h, 45m ago by jptranslator_girl in Chatter Box
English is my first language. But my situation is kind of weird because my father's from the U.S. and my mother's Japanese, so I grew up hearing and speaking both languages. My mom always tells me that when I was small, it confused me to the point ...

I just never could get into Vampire Knight--not even in the very beginning. It seemed a bit too dark and melodramatic for me. I just never could stand it.

Shoujo with suicide

I second Jisatsu Circle, but this oneshot is super depressing. If you like Junji Ito or horror in general, then try Black Paradox. To say whether or not the characters were saved is kind of a matter of opinion, but I like it. laugh ...

Bluntness is okay. Believe it or not, people can be pretty blunt without coming across as a complete and total d***. So yeah, bluntness it okay. ...

Anne Freaks is close, but I've read both that one and Tomie. It's niether one of those. It was something that I never even knew existed until I saw it on amazon. Now I can't find it at all. ...

I'm looking for this one particular horror manga that's like, only 4 volumes long. It's about this guy that meets a cute, innocent-looking girl, but she actually turns out to be a manipulator and kind of instigates a lot of bad things. I know it's lice ...
Interracial Dating - Case of the Self-hating Asian?
(65 posts, 6933 views) Posted: 1238d 20h, 57m ago by jptranslator_girl in Chatter Box
Quote from AA2109964
I would assume most parents would be against it, after all, they probably want to keep their blood line homogenous from other races. I know my parents are like that, guess it's a pride thing.



Yeah, I would probably have to agree with ...

Well, I'm half Japanese and French. I love both my parents and both sides of my blood equally. For me, it doesn't matter who you like. Granted, when my mom brought my father home, my grandparents weren't exactly thrilled. For the most part ...

Quote from Crenshinibon
Probably the best truly modern Japanese writer in translation is Ogawa Yoko. The Diving Pool, especially the third novella, is particularly excellent.


I second Ogawa Yoko. I loved The Housekeeper and the Professor. It w ...

"Cute" girls that talk about their selves in the third person while being wilful or demanding ridiculous things!


Lol, but I can tell you for a fact that you might just catch a cute Japanese high school/junior high girl actually doing that--maybe. I ...

Quote from eirini_kl
Sorry, I guess it was a wrong choice of words. Of course, there is no reason for the japanese to fall in love with family members more than other nationalities. I guess that it is just a popular plot twist among manga artists, like you said. Still, it kind ...

Lady Gaga
(50 posts, 4125 views) Posted: 1552d 0h, 51m ago by jptranslator_girl in Music
I don't like or dislike Lady Gaga. Actually, I could care less about the artists whenever I hear a song that I like. If something sounds good to me, then I like it. If I think it sucks, then I don't bother with it.

I'll listen to anything--as long as it sounds good. Th ...

I've never been scarred by manga before, but was really shocked the first time I saw a hentai manga. I was about 12 years old and one of my guy friends had secretly taken one of his older brother's manga. I remember not being able to eat my dinne ...

I've been reading manga since I was about 5 years old, so it's been over 18 years already smile . I can't even begin to recall the number of series' that I've read up to this point. The only thing that I can say for sure is that it's a p ...
FMA The End
(65 posts, 8182 views) Posted: 1563d 20h, 11m ago by jptranslator_girl in Full Metal Alchemist
I thought that FMA ended on a perfect note. As far as the amount of romance at the end goes, well, I thought that it was very fitting--considering Ed and Winry's personalities. Very well done~! ...
