You haven't watched chiko-chan ni shikareru? It's brilliant.
What’d you rent? (I’ve never seen any DVD in Japan w/o subs but obviously there are some.)I just rented to a DVD to find that there were no subtitles. I thought for a movie, as opposed to an anime, there would surely be subtitles, but alas ... I'll have to manage with just my ears.
Is this common? How is this allowed to happen? More than my own inconvenience, it should be there for deaf people ...
Playing Parasite Eve over the holidays, I decided to rent the film from Tsutaya. I guess it's not exactly a popular movie (and probably not very good), but still ... I feel like there should be industry standards in place to have a country where all people can enjoy its media.
I thought that there was an industry standard as most everything I’ve seen on TV here has subtitles.Playing Parasite Eve over the holidays, I decided to rent the film from Tsutaya.

I also rented Hanzawa Naoki, the drama, but haven't tested it yet.
That's the thing. I had thought Japan was actually better about this.
Ah online... that’s why. The going to TSUTAYA /movie/CD rental store thing is still a thing I enjoy doing.
Amazon seems to still have 4, but I don't know if this seller is okay with international shipping.I've got a left field question that I thought possibly was worth asking.
There's this calendar I'd really like to get for my wife.
It's Shibata san, a mascot she likes a lot. It seems to be sold out and/or not available anywhere I look (I'm in the US). Any ideas how or where I might find it? Thanks all!
JP Post is pretty cheap to the states for letter-sized envelopes. I wouldn't fret over a few hundred yen for postage.
I always dreamt about an AQUOS but unfortunately there exists no 24” Full HD. When I check Yahoo Auctions I see many 24” but they rarely tell if it’s full hd or not.
Interesting, I wonder if they stopped making smaller sizes.I always dreamt about an AQUOS but unfortunately there exists no 24” Full HD. When I check Yahoo Auctions I see many 24” but they rarely tell if it’s full hd or not.
Everyone seems to recommend the cheap DOUSHISHA DOL24S100 (only BS-tuner) or DOL24H100 (BS and CS) so I will probably just go with that
Thanks a lot! I checked kakaku before but I just ticked the 20-32 inch span but thanks to your custom 24” search I found out that the 24”
Trading CollectionHey Japan-Era!
Could someone with better japanese skills than Google Translate give me a rough translation of what's written here?
It's from a card collection/booster box, so I assume it says something about total number of cards/commcon/rares and so on...
Can't personally help, but maybe ask the Japan travel thread? This thread is for residents of Japan and I'm not sure many of us know about sites for non-Japan residents atm
So my father in law in Japan finally got a smartphone. Didn’t tell us first otherwise we’d have said get an iPhone for FaceTime. (We are in the UK). He got a Kyocera Daiso 3 (sounds amazing /s)
Can it support any kind of video calling with my wife’s iPhone/iPad?
He’s 80 and this is his first smartphone. I guess it might be -reinstalled but he’d still need an account. Will see if the store or my sister-in-law can check.
LINE is used by like 90% of Japan, so it should come in handy for him. It's been forever since I started using line but if I remember correctly it is pretty automated creating an account using the phones phone number.He’s 80 and this is his first smartphone. I guess it might be -reinstalled but he’d still need an account. Will see if the store or my sister-in-law can check.
Looking at the spec it seems to be a BASIO 3 - thought DASIO was unlikely. Runs android 7 and has google play store so should be ok for line.
They aren't actually rude...unless you're from Tokyo. Before I lived there I was laughing at the fact that something as benign as speaking loudly on the train can be construed as rude. After living in Tokyo, I became more sensitive towards this so the joke's on me. This is just one example.Does anyone have real life examples of this Osaka rudeness. It's said all the time but I don't know what people's interactions are with strangers daily that they would able to determine this from trips. Are the conbini employees scoffing at you instead of greeting? Are people shoving you on the train? I've only been a couple of times but noticed zero difference in the interactions with people.
Congrats dude!!!!I posted this in the travel thread, but would also love some input in this thread!

If you're certain that your prospective job here requires an N2 or 1, then you'll just need find what works to spur motivation. Like how everyone has their own "best" solution to study kanji; everyone eventually finds what works just right for their needs.
I wanna get into translation so oops yeah I think I'll need N1 lolIf you're certain that your prospective job here requires an N2 or 1, then you'll just need find what works to spur motivation.

Keep plugging at it. Faito! ^_^
I do that already lol, have been since I started 7 years agoI know we have a Japanese learning thread, but one piece of advice from me - instead of beating yourself over no motivation and as a result not doing anything, do everything you would normally do in Japanese. Games? Play them in Japanese? Movies, music? You know the drill. The AJJAT (all the Japanese all the time) method works great and has helped me immensely in college.
