Re: What Do You Like About Cowboy Bebop

I realize this has been sort of necro'ed, BUT I just had to be the harbinger of bad news! :twisted:

They're making a live action Cowboy Bebop film with Keanu Reeves as Spike.








Yup.

Re: kanji/IME help

Thanks again. I tried it one more time. Typed "futotteimasu" and hit space twice. A list popped up, but before I could do anything, it deleted automatically. I'm thinking it's a bug of some sort. I figured I was doing something wrong, but what you're telling me to do is pretty much what I've been do...

Re: kanji/IME help

Thank you. But no dice yet. Even if I type just "futotte imasu" by itself, it still does the same thing. I'm still just a beginner, so I was typing it piece by piece, making sure I got the section right before I typed the next one, ie Kono onna no(space bar, enter) hito wa(space bar, enter), futotte...

kanji/IME help

I ran into a problem while on Livemocha.com earlier today. I was on the writing section of the first lesson, and in it I had to describe people. We were only given a limited number of adjectives to work with, so one of the sentences I came up with was "kono onna no hito wa futotte imasu." Which, acc...

Re: What's a good place to buy anime in the US?

I don't like sad stories so that's one that I've avoided for years. It's really good, though. Grave of the Fireflies is just a good film; I don't usually like anime, but I liked it. I'm sure everyone has told you that you should just watch it anyway, so I won't, but you know... Exactly! That's one ...

Re: What's a good place to buy anime in the US?

I know. I never cry when watching movies. Not even Bambi or The Notebook can get a tear out of me. But, I was telling my mom the plot of Grave of the Fireflies and I started to cry a little bit. She was all like "What? Why are you crying?" She refuses to watch it because it's animated, but I'll get ...

Ah, thank you. I did a google search but that place didn't come up. Go figure.

What's a good place to buy anime in the US?

Ok, so let's start this by saying I know very little about anime. The other day, there was a film on HBO or something called "Grave of the Fireflies." So I watched it; and oh man, I cried, cried, cried. I have no idea why I liked something that made me cry so much, but now I want to buy it. The thin...

Re: So frustrated; can't learn hiragana.

I'm glad you agree with me. I used to get messages when I had Myspace saying things like "Asian gurls r hawt!!lulz lulz." I think it's because of my hair, to be honest. It was annoying because you know they just look at pictures and not your profile, but Myspace is full of idiots, anyway. All that a...

Oh Poop! Well actually... I don't look at the avatars, it's just that "revolutionary" seems like what a male would chose as a nick. But don't mind me. Sorry about the misunderstanding, and another fact is that... when I do not know the gender of a certain person, that person will be automatically d...

I was going to ask how pork chop thought that table would be of any help to someone struggling with hiragana. I think pork ch...

Re: So frustrated; can't learn hiragana.

They have these new pancakes down at IHOP called the "Discover America" pancakes. Today I tried the Louisiana Bananas Foster. Extremely おいしい! I think I'll go back again and rediscover America sometime soon. Not that I'm trying to torture you. We moved to the Inland Empire from Orange when I was five...

Re: So frustrated; can't learn hiragana.

Thanks for the encouragement, and you're entirely right about boasters. It's very frustrating to see elitist attitudes, especially on boards like these where everyone is here to learn. A lot of people do tend to brag about how quickly they learn hiragana (not just here; I've seen it elsewhere). I'd ...

Re: So frustrated; can't learn hiragana.

Revolutionary, as you have probably found out, not everyone learns things at the same rate of speed, nor at the same level of comprehension. It's not uncommon at all to find 30 people that learn hiragana at different rates, so you are not unique at all. That's a relief. I sure would hate to be uniq...

Re: So frustrated; can't learn hiragana.

Yeah, I plan to do the exact same thing. It's not in the book, but I figure you have to keep using them to learn them. This method seems pretty solid. I'm a bit apprehensive about the combos, but we'll see when I get there. I tested myself this morning and I still knew the chapter from yesterday, so...
