Welcome to Sushichan!

Original Samachan.org migration discussion thread at >>>/yakuza/776

This board was made to handle some of the discussion topics that were common on Samachan but not so common on Sushichan. Japanese and Otaku culture as well as Anime-related discussions can go in this board, whether you were originally from Samachan or not. In addition, if you are from Samachan and you're not sure if your topic would fit in one of our other boards, you can post it here. If the moderators think it would be a better fit for another part of the site, it might get moved.

Sushichan Guidelines
* Read the rules! Also take a minute to look around.
* All conversations should be comfy and use polite language.
* Less comfy conversations (within reason) can be had in /hell/.
* NSFW content goes in /lewd/. Keep 3D threads in /lewd/ to a minimum.
* Site meta discussion goes in /yakuza/.
* The /culture/ board is mostly for literature and artwork, despite the name.
* Cute stuff goes in /kawaii/, but it is an SFW board.
* The /arcade/ board has been expanded to include all kinds of games, including tabletop.
* Keep most Japan / Otaku / Anime related topics within this board.

This dude speaks Japanese with an Indian accent which i did not realize at first.
There is something odd when you can recognize an accent but in a completely different language.

Oh nice, I'm happy to see sushis watching Niea_7, I think it's an underrated show and super charming as well. I adore Mayuko and Niea, in particular Mayuko was a really relatable character for me. The Chiaki J Konaka UFO girl is fun too.

I wrote a whole lot about my thoughts while watching and after finishing the show in the Yoshitoshi ABe thread!

I recently watched the film Perfect Blue, and I have decided to collect some thoughts on it

It is, foremost, a finely crafted and engaging piece, which at once has a lot going on, as though they could have moved towards one of many possible alternate focuses in direction, but it is nonetheless comprehensive, at no point is it meandering or does it complicate its storyline any further than is strictly necessary.

One specific point that is particularly effective is its use of orientation and 'clean' editing - compare to something like Natural Born Killers, which uses Brechtian principles and disorienting cuts and angles to create a persistent sense of unease and aggression, whereas PB is mostly of a more traditional form of editing, which I think is of particular effect twofold, the somewhat claustrophobic locales, the apartment and train interior (of which the De Palma influence should be acknowledged also) particularly, which are often established or at least seen through identical shots, creates a sense of familiarity, which is in turn more effectively revoked, as the viewer's understanding and conception is able to be taken away from them, a point which also connects into the story - remembering that Mima does not show the initiative in the career change, there is little indication it is something she truly wants, rather than a point that is forced upon her. Recalling Nietzsche's claim that "a living being seeks above all else to discharge its power", Mima's lack of autonomy is made apparent, within her career for the aforementioned reason, and subsequently within her home life, remembering that it is the sight of her inability to properly establish her autonomy over the fish which causes her to suffer a mental breakdown.

it was a good picture.


I've been watching Hanaukyou Maid-tai lately. I wasn't expecting anything at all, but I ended up really enjoying it. The humor is predictable and silly, but kind of endearing. The ecchi is handled tastefully, which is something I miss, and the focus is mostly on the rom-com aspect. In that sense it's similar to Love Hina. It's difficult to put into words, but there's something deeply appealing about it. The premise, the art style, the gags, the setting; it's a time capsule.
Unfortunately, the remake doesn't have the same charm so I probably won't watch it.

Thanks! I'm glad we caught up.
Hanabi not playing now is clearly just part of the plan for her to pick up the slack and save everyone's asses soon. Actually, I'm starting to think her moment might come in the next match.





Should I be waiting for these TL notes?


Apologies. Not really. The big one's already been figured out, about the stomach bug thing. I left it in literally so as to not add to the confusion.

The only other noteworthy one is for >>6401

Kiruka is using 難儀 which is a bit of a literary way to talk about Hanabi's trouble. "Such trouble/hardship/suffering" could work too. I went for "what a pickle" because to me it carries across the same playfulness of the original.


4-koma is up now:

Okay, thanks. The pickle thing works well.

I love the girl, but she has not contributed anything so far. She's only going to win her next match because it's the only way for them to advance and it'll be on the back of Ace's morale boost.

>author dies before finishing his work
How many times has this happened? Not just manga-wise but in anything?


It happens legit all the time
For major series it happens less but that's because there aren't many major series in the first place. Robert Jordan died randomly within 6 months after getting diagnosed with a 5 year prognosis, and he didn't finish Wheel of Time because of it. Brandon Sanderson had to ruin it instead.

How do you feel about these new chapters?


I want guts to fucking kill him.


Wait, three years? How the fuck is that possible?

i'll be in 日本 for a few weeks, what are your favorite things to do and places to go in Japan? do you have any fun stories from your trips or daily life here?

i've been having a blast so far! i love the food and the atmosphere and everyone is very kind. pic related is the entrance to the Meiji shrine in Harajuku. Takeshita street was packed shoulder to shoulder which was not as fun but nonetheless an interesting experience.


Never been to Japan, but if I were I would rent a car and just drive around the countryside. It has been few days, mind sharing some more photos?


I hope you have been having fun sushi :)
Any favourite places so far?


seconded, I'd love to see pics!
