|How long did it take you to learn Japanese?
(11 posts, 609 views) Posted: 56d 3h, 6m ago by chrum in Chatter Box
I guess I'm not the one to talk about "speaking Japanese", as I'm not fluent, but from knowing words like "arigatou" or "oniisan" to passing JLPT N4 and knowing about 400-500 kanji (which is enough for simple talks ...

|Why do some people dislike vegans?
(95 posts, 5468 views) Posted: 158d 6h, 25m ago by chrum in Chatter Box
I used to be a vegetarian for about 8 years (now I have to eat fish because of anemia & milk intolerance) and for me there are 3 reasons people dislike vegetarians/vegans:
- preaching. Like..totally. It annoyed me even though I was vegetarian myself. Maybe ...
|When was the last time you sat down and read a book?
(501 posts, 46209 views) Posted: 174d 4h, 38m ago by chrum in Chatter Box
Finished reading Tobias Elsasser's (no German fonts, sorry) "Fur Niemand" today. No matter how much I'd want to read "serious" books in German, teen stories are about as much as my language skills allow.
In the meantim ...

|Swords or Guns
(164 posts, 14579 views) Posted: 285d 4h, 39m ago by chrum in Shounen/Seinen
Guns are definitely more effective, but when it comes to solely being cool a katana is waaay better. Elegant. Blades in general are pretty good-looking, and if I had to pick one I especially like it'd be knives. Less flashy, but if used by an experienced person the ...
|Worst grammatical error in your opinion.

I'm not great when it comes to grammar in English (second language),but
I learned English at school, that's why it's hard for me to understand how could anyone confuse there and they're..

(27 posts, 1138 views) Posted: 310d 3h, 5m ago by chrum in News
It really depends.. Usually it's the manga, but at the same time I liked Hana Yori Dango's drama adaptation more, No.6 was best as a novel, Code:Breaker was ok as an anime and completely unreadable as a manga..
I wouldn't even vote " ...

I'd say Hana yori Dango kinda fits the description. He's .. a little of both dangerous (little) and not right in the head. ...

I have hypoglycemia so I won't sleep when I'm hungry.. rather shiver, sweat and feel nauseous until I decide to eat something. As soon as I'll eat I'll pass out. ...

As for my favourite and least favourite books: The least favourite is "The Sorrows of Young Werther", I suppose I don't have to explain why. I understand why we had to read it, but I definitely did not enjoy it. And the favourite is ...

I love my mother and grandma (she's like a 7yr old kid now), and they are the only people from the family I have contact with.
The rest is either dead, doesn't care at all or hates me (step-sister, and I really mean it)
So it sums up to A I suppose? ...

PC, (...) takes 7 mins to boot, and 20 mins to shut down, which is why I rarely use it.
if it's not 12+ years old, and has a proper system installed this shouldn't happen. Usually re-installing the system should speed it up a fair bit. I ...

I like sports but I didn't really like the mandatory lessons while I was at school. I happened to be in a class, where most of the girls found stereotypically "manly" sports such as football (soccer) more appealing than aerobic but we had to do some ...

Non-skinny for me.
I'm skinny and I have proportions of a 14-year old boy, so I don't need the pants to emphasize it even more. Straight are fine, the wide ones even better (the type that is so wide it's at the edge of falling down), and recently I' ...

Both teens are about the same age, one - street smart, living outside "paradise" takes care of a refugee, not used to the world outside. Nice and deep, you could see how they learn from each other.
But rather novel, the manga has reportedly drif ...

This will be a rant of someone who had to stop being a vegetarian after 6 or 7 years due to health problems, and had to pick what to eat and what not.
I agree that the example with a boy is a bad one.. if you really want that one, this should be more of a case, of:
