  1. Hi there, I know it depends heavily on the particular country you live in, but did anyone ever had problems with customs when importing Dakimakura? Some of those depict loli characters with explicit nudity, so I was wondering if the import of phantasy-drawings can be persecuted. I mean, c`mon, they're not even real. The german law for example is really inconclusive. A drawing would need to be "close to reality" to be considered illegal, which leaves enough room for malicious interpretation. And even if something would be legal by law, it's still enough to get you in trouble that some customs official is in doubt and starts a ruckus. With people becoming more and more hysterical about nonsense, I'm not going to risk anything though. Not worth it.. Greetz.
  2. In no particular order: Favorite - Irotoridori no sekai, Hoshizora no Memoria, Astral Air Key - Little Busters, Clannad .. do I even need to write more? We all know key. Yuzusoft - Dracu Riot, Tenshinranman, Noble Works
  3. Twinkle Crusaders. Just finished my first route (Nanaka). The battlesystem is kinda stupid, but the comedy is good and the characters are so fluffy sweet, it's balm for the soul.
  4. Dunno.. First weeks of learning Japanese were amazing. I was sucking up so many information, my brain felt like exploding, but it was still awesome. Come back complaining when you hit 10.000 vocabs and reviewing all that stuff becomes a chore
  5. Try Akikan. Or Dears. If Anime could give cancer, they would..
  6. I'm able to read a VN without problems (2,5 years self-study, 10.000 individual words learned), but I wouldn't be able to hold a simple conversation, simply because I never practiced it. You can have a near-fluent passive language-ability (reading, hearing), but that doesn't guarantee a sufficient active language-ability (speaking, writing). That's nothing surprising. It's the basic difference between recall and creation. Your course of action should depend on your goal. I never intended to actually speak a lot Japanese, so I focused my study on learning vocabs and a skimming through some grammar. If you just want to read VNs, a good spaced repetition system (Anki), a good grammar guide (imabi.net), exposition to the language (Anime subbed or even jap-subbed) and willpower (continuing to read untranslated even though it's a hassle in the beginning; doing your daily reviews) is all you need. I've never even done a single school-like exercise. --- On a sidenote: I don't recommend Memrise as a SRS anymore. The devs have no clue what they are doing with their site.
  7. Thanks for all the replies, gotta look through them for sure! Days are way to short for all the stuff I want to read *sigh*
  8. I'm searching for some lighthearted, teasing, funny VN with its focus on the romance. Nothing too serious / dramatic like clannad, little busters, Hoshimemo, Iroseka. Untranslated is fine with me. If you know Erina from Dracu riot, you know the general direction.
  9. School days, Shuffle, Yosuga no sora, Gantz. I get cold shivers of horror for even remembering them.
  10. Started Irotoridori no sekai, which gives off a similar feeling like Hoshizora no Memoria, Favourites previous work, that I really enjoyed. I haven't read much so far, but Shinku already beats Mea. Mea was just a brat without much personality, Shinku has way more impact. Let's see how the other characters will turn out.
  11. Skimmed through some Animes, but this time not much could arouse my interest. So far I'm only going to watch: Sakurako-san no Ashimoto. Morbid, unsocial, mature onee-san with long black hair already sold it for me. Though I've never been particularly fond of crime-stuff, I'll give it a try. Yuru Yuri. Weekly dose of yuri. There can't be a season without it. Owari no Seraph. Maybe I like it more for what I imagine it could be than for what it actually is (like SAO). Also the first season seemed like one big intro, so I hope the real deal will come now. Heavy object. I like big war machines. Though this type of Anime usually requires one to forget about actual military strategism, big toys making boom are still fun to watch. One punch man. Heard that people talk a lot about it, so I'll at least want to make sure I'm not missing something that could be one of this seasons best shows. The premise sounds lame: a hero who's able to beat everything without much effort; but I have no clue how this show will play out, so let's see. Intended to watch Owarimonogatari, but first I want to catch up with some of the previous parts I haven't watched. I'll probably just watch some of the good'ol stuff this season. Good opportunity.
  12. Just finished Little Busters Ex in Japanese. A goal I've worked two years for. Today's a good day.
  13. Nightwish, End of an Era concert 2006 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZAAzWnCwBU Heavy nostalgia.
