Re: "Children's Fantasy" Discussion

I remember reading something about an anime (I think it was an anime) where this exact thing happened. The kid got sucked into an alternate fantasy world and saved it from the big bad, and then got dumped back here. The parents believed her, grudgingly, but she got the impression they thought she wa...

Re: Blah, blah, blah...

In Japanese, there are a few expressions. The most common one is 'nantoka kantoka' which just means 'this, that, whatever'. It's what you'd sing if you were singing a song and suddenly forgot some of the words. There's also a slightly less-used one which I really like, 'chinpun kanpun'. It means 'gi...

Japanese people cheat SO much. And every time I hear about another girl whose 'boyfriend' is married, or a guy who's married but sleeps with other people because he and his wife are 'sexless', a part of my self-righteousness fades away into the dim fog of 'everyone's doing it'. I'm worried that if I...
