Re: Tour of Costco Japan

That's cause the US uses the term "immigrant" more often

Re: Tour of Costco Japan

Costco Japan markets itself quite a lot to expats. They're the only place to find certain foods (turkey, muenster cheese, fresh blackberries) at a reasonable cost or in fact, at all. It's kinda hard to go there if you don't have a car, and they're always an absolute bitch to get in and out on the we...

Re: ryusoulger question

It's not just you, it's a quirk of Japanese that there is no standalone m sound but there is a standalone n sound, which is frequently used to represent m sounds in foreign loan words and also can be changed to m if followed by a lip smacking p or b etc

Re: Rider Time Shinobi 02 released

I didn't particularly like the first episode but this one was kinda fun. They played with tropes a bit and it's nice to see StarNinja's actor in something where he doesn't shout every line. Plus the double outfit change was pretty hilarious 😂

Kyuranger? A series where basically nothing happens for most of the show?

Re: Rider Time Ryuki 02 released

There is nothing worse than on-screen couples with no chemistry, regardless of gender, and this was particularly egregious. Their kiss had all the passion of someone asked to tongue a cold dead fish. It was pretty clear the actors were uncomfortable, which leads me to suspect that maybe this wasn't ...

Re: KR Zi-O 31 released

I meant like the guests sound exactly the same as they used to in the original series. Their voices haven't changed at all in the past 15+ years.

Re: KR Zi-O 31 released

During the walking scene Woz's voice sounds like it was recorded in a studio afterwards. Given the distance between him and the rest of the cast and the lack of a boom mike shadow, I assume they couldn't get good enough audio the first time and had to redo it later. Other scenes he sounds normal eno...

The man who drew the most charismatic, affable thief Uhhh, have you read the manga? It is vastly different from the anime, and not in a good way. Anime!Lupin is a charming rougue but Manga!Lupin is a degenerate, dirty pervert. Not to speak ill of the dead but the most you can attribute to Monkey Pu...

Re: Ryusoulger 05 released

Christ this was ham-fisted.

I mean the flashback to something that happened 3 minutes ago was bad enough, but it's just so damn irritating to have these literal 180s without any real motivation behind them.

Re: Sentai Ranking

I'm not sure if "patriotic" is really the right word here. Shinkenger was definitely chock full of traditional JP feeling but that's not really patriotic in the same sense as flag-waving USA USA USA! Honestly most people in Japan aren't patriotic in that sense. Oh, there's pride in the country and w...
