:: Animelliure :: From the Ranma 1/2 mailing list: All I Ever Learned, I Learned from Anime ======================================== 1. War sucks. 2. You CAN have too many women. 3. Smart people wear glasses. 4. Music foreshadows plot. 5. The less you care about sex, the more opportunities you'll get. 6. Version 3 In order to download files with BitTorrent, you must first download one of the clients listed below. Once you have downloaded and installed a client, click the file name, and open the .torrent file using the client. Then chose where you want to save and start the download (your client may start doing this automatically). Speeds can vary depending on torrent creation date, number of seeders / clients on it, and so on. Please contribute to the fansub community by leaving your download window open for as long as possible (at least a day or 2) allowing others to download the file. Please help seed old torrents; it really helps us out! Try any of the above clients - they should all work well with our torrents. Most torrents have a low seed-to-client ratio right now, so please leave your bittorrent windows on for as long as possible.

Last night I was watching "Trigun" DVDs that I'd borrowed from a coworker, and marveling at the terrible quality of the English subtitles. I'd guess they were inaccurate or wrong at least half the time, and 75% of the time I knew I could've written a better subtitle myself. But, accuracy aside, that got me pondering about all the things that are lost in translation from Japanese to English, whether in anime or manga form. I've occasionally mentioned this data loss, but I figured I'd try to write out more completely some of the nuances that are lost. The Japanese Language The Japanese language is well-known for both the complexities of its social nuances, as well as onomatopoetic qualities (having words that imitate natural sounds). Social Nuances The social nuances of the Japanese language often mean that every speaker identifies gender, social status, the listener's social status, and the type of social situation, purely by the choice of words.

THAT Anime Blog | Welcome to our new home! Shinmanga : blog sur le manga et le japon 100 Most Essential Words In Anime A couple of years ago when I first started to read manga in Japanese, I really wish I had access to a list like this. Watching anime over the years had allowed me to pick up at least a partial vocabulary of common expressions. Having subtitles helped, but by the time I started learning Japanese formally and practicing with manga, I ran across a problem. Most Japanese classes focus on formal, "proper" language and tend to discourage colloquialisms. Intellectually I knew this, but I still had a problem. A little while later, I found out that "omae" is one of several informal ways of aying "you." So about a year ago I thought about making a list of similar phrases that all anime fans should know, but aren't usually covered in the Basic Japanese Series. I have not changed any of the text, although I have organized the code a bit and cleaned things up. In the future I will come up with some additions, but for now I am leaving the document itself untouched for your interest. 2. ai- love.

Anime Theme - Windows Sidebar Gadget Gallery Windows Gadget is a new feature of Windows Vista and 7. The Vista version has a "Sidebar" which contains mini-applications (called "Gadgets") which are based on a combination of Script and HTML. They may be used to display information such as the system time, CPU/RAM usage and Internet-powered features such as RSS feeds, and to control external applications such as Windows Media Player. Gadgets can run "docked" in the sidebar or they can "float" anywhere on the desktop. Here you will find various original Anime-style gadgets for your desktop. Anime Clock 01 This is the first gadget I made :P It is a simple clock with cute Anime-style digits. (Full-size screenshots: Both docked and undocked "Anime Clock 01" showing on the deskop ) Anime Clock 02 This is an analog clock with CUSTOMIZABLE clock background and various settings! (Full-size screenshots: Normal (docked and undocked) | Clock pointers in Pink | Clock panel ON ) Installing a Gadget Simply click on the unzipped ".gadget" file. A: Yes.
