I have watched Tampopo many years ago. It's interesting from a cultural point of view but yet it talks about stuff that we face everyday, food, sex, love, etc. Azumi 1 and 2 rock! The best Japanese action movies I have seen. Audition is a very suspenseful movie. Scary for the faint of heart. Twlight...

[Movie] SHINOBI

More details are at http://shinobi-movie.com/index2.html, which is due out on Sep 17, 2005 in theatres. This movie is an adaptation of Yamada Fuutarou's " Basilisk - Kouga Ninpou-chou". Interestingly, there is an anime "Basilisk" currently being broadcasted in Japan. I am eager to see this one but i...

Any words on the appearance of the staged "victim"?

They got to get some good-looking gal to lure them. :w00t:

Re: Japanese way of English pronunciation

Rather than direct you to an incomplete list, I'd recommend using Babelfish: http://babelfish.altavista.com/ Type in the English word, then use English-to-Japanese, and it'll kick out the Katakana version if necessary, or the Hiragana/Kanji translation if there's one available. --- goink Thanks for...

Japanese way of English pronunciation

Side Question: I have noticed some references to English words in Japanese. Their pronunciation is a bit difference. Benoist (The tea brand), Computers, etc. Does someone know if there are any websites that talk about these "foreign" words and their proper japanese pronunciation? I mean, I am curiou...

Forgive my ignorance, Yamada-san is very apologetic as he keeps saying "sumimasen" all the times.

I notice that the subbing sometimes translates it as "sorry" but as "Thank You" occasionally. So, is it something that has to be understood in the context of the conversation???

Thx.

Stupid Yamada!!!!!!!!! Why would he pick anime convention over super hot Saori =__= So dumb, and then for her to find her. Serves him right for trying to get away with lieing. I thought he would've learned his lesson from the whole surfing thing and all. And that basketball player clearly saying he...

The shi is indeed fairly formal as you two have already figured out. It's commonly used in a lot of technical (often times hobby related) publications*, and looks to be used in this case to imply respect for each other's expertise in Otaku related subjects. *This is the case with the Japanese DIY e...

How about her family? A lot of troubles ahead for Yamada. I get the idea that Aoyama's brother is going to help out Yamada... so he should go okay with his backing... I think this drama needs more antagonists. The forum followers are big supports of Yamada. The OL is the obvious antagonist now. To ...

Side question on Japanese Honorifics:

Are there any reasons the two otaku friends of Yamada calling him Yamada-shi all the times?

If they are close friends as they seem, wouldn't it be more appropriate to address him as Yamada-chan or Yamada-kun?

Could anyone explain a bit on that? Thanks.

I agreed with what Kyusaku and Molokidan said. Spoiler follows... That's a turning point and it's going to be an uphill battle for Yamada who threw away the only virtue that Saori appreciates. That itself would make a good drama. Well, things definitely would heat up in ep 7 and on. How about her fa...

Perhaps, I am in minority.

I vote for "Kamisama, Mou Sukoshi Dake".
