  1. They imply a lot of things. With how other companies have been able to get 18+ versions of Akabeisoft titles, Sekai most likely decided to go back and make a new deal after people started to point out that other companies did it, similar to how they said they couldn't get de-mosaiced versions of Chrono Clock's CGs, then MG got uncensored CGs for Hapymaher and what do you know, Chrono Clock gets uncensored too. It seems like 18+ content is rarely a priority to Sekai when they make deals. Hopefully this is a practice they'll consider changing, seeing how important it is to some parts of the community.
  2. No, they bought the translation from the fanTL group. They must have deemed it good enough to be sold without the need for a re-translation.
  3. It’s the same. I compared the two when the official release first came out, and only saw a few typos being changed, no actual line changes. So yeah, I suppose they have just been stuck in some contract hell with the 18+ version, (or programming hell,) as there is no other reason why putting the text into the game should take years, lol.
  4. Only place you’ll find longer titles is with isekai light novels.
  5. Translated versions are always the best, in my opinion! As a translator, I get to come chip in on what the game's translated title should be, which is always fun! (And headache inducing. It's about 60/40) Some of the localized titles for VNs in recent years have come out great. Mangagamer especially tends to come up with really fun ones. While simple, I think Sisterly Bliss was such a great title for Tsui Yuri's localized title. It tells you so much more than "Tsui Yuri" untouched would have done. (Great job, PR team. )

  7. [Spoilers] Avengers Endgame Discussion

    Captain Marvel's role is meant to be mostly off screen, as that's her role in general. She isn't an earthbound hero, but one that protects the whole universe. You really should watch her movie, it's really good! The skrulls are among my favorite characters in marvel comics, and I have a feeling we might see more of them, so it's smart watching her movie anyways, even just for that. You also see a lot more of her in the movie, and understand more about why she acts like she does. She isn't very expressive for a reason. If anything, I think her actor does a very good job of portraying the character. I also disagree with some of your comments on Thor. He wasn't reduced to a joke, he was seriously depressed. He thinks everything that happened is his fault, as, being the only being capable of killing Thanos at the time and failing, he ... pretty much was. He had no idea Doctor Strange had planned all this, and actually thought he was at fault. It's no wonder he'd drink himself half to death, and that the result would be him ending up like that. I actually very much enjoyed seeing him fight his demons when he and Rocket traveled back in time, and he meets his mother, who finally manages to get him to pull himself together. And of course, there's no magic pill to restore his apperance in such a short time, so he had to remain like that for the movie. I'm confused about what exactly it is you didn't get with Hulk. He explained exactly what happened, he embraced the Hulk as a part of himself, not as another self he has to fight. That's how he became Professor Hulk, (which is an actual thing from the comics, and not something the creators of the movie made up, by the way.) I too wish they would have done a bit more with his relationship with Nat, though, as it would have made her demise even more emotional. Though, it did still make me cry like a little girl, so, maybe it was for the better. (/ω\) As for what's next, I'd imagine they will bring in some new giant, cosmic threat like Galactus, which would also make sense since the MCU are seemingly getting the rights to The Fantastic Four, which brings both Dr. Doom, Galactus and the Silver Surfer with it. With the introduction of the multiverse in Doctor Strange, and with the destruction of the infinity stones causing so much chaos like The Ancient One said it would, it would make sense for some new, massive threat like Galactus to show up. And seeing as he is more powerful than Thanos (without the glove), he will be quite a threat to the current avengers. Heck, just his herald, The Silver Surfer, will be a big threat. (And could be a villain for a whole avengers movie on his own.) I'm really looking forward to what they have planned for the multiverse moving forward. It's clearly a core theme in Far From Home, so I'd imagine we'll know more of what's to come after watching it. The new, post endgame trailer, if you haven't seen it:
  8. Living in Japan as a foreigner - AMA

    I have not used any of these sites/ apps myself, but my friends tell me they are pretty good for meeting people in Japan, yeah. Even apps like Tinder apparently has several people just looking for friends/ conversational partners, specifically Japanese speakers wanting someone to speak English with and vice versa. The app can be used for something other than sex, who knew! I don't know how many old people you'll find on those apps, though, lol. Not a lot of elderly people who are good with technology over there. Good luck on your trip.
  9. Living in Japan as a foreigner - AMA

    Definitely. It’s very hard for them to learn, and they have much less motivation compared to some of us, who learn Japanese because we’re super into Japanese media. There are some "Western media otakus" in Japan too though, ofc, which is always fun to see. A friend of mine is like that, and hearing her go on about western stuff like it’s the most amazing shit ever is so funny. We’re not the only otakus out there, guys! Right. So, when it comes to polite forms in the Japanese language in general, there’s been a pretty big decline in the usage of "keigo" and such in general in the past few years. Our professor at the university I went to in Japan told us that we probably know keigo better than native speakers our age, as they simply don’t care as much anymore. To be safe, just stick with "teineigo", which is the general polite forms people use when speaking to strangers. You don’t need any higher level of polieteness than that, unless you’re going to be in some serious job related situations. (So, your standard desu/masu endings is plenty.) And tbh, I’d think just using teineigo would be enough for a foreigner, even at job interviews, as long as you make a generally good impression. For honorifics, you’re really only going to need -san. I’ve never had anyone look at me weird when using first name-san, as with young people nowadays, that level of "closeness" tends to be quite normal, with the internet and what not bringing people closer. If you want to be safe, though, you can use last name-san, especially for people who are older etc. Though, tbh, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about this stuff. Just sticking to teineigo and using -san for people you don’t know, will be more than enough. That’s what I personally do, at least.
  10. Living in Japan as a foreigner - AMA

    I have mainly been talking with younger people in Japan, and haven't been introduced to anyone's family or anything yet, so I haven't actually spoken much with older Japanese people at all, beyond just very short conversations in passing etc. I must admit, I'm more of a fan of the current generation in Japan, as they are more modern and open to western ideas, compared to the rather conservative older generation. As I haven't talked much with the elderly in Japan, I honestly can't give a good answer to this, I'm afraid. About keigo, you generally don't need more than teineigo in Japan to have normal conversations with people. Keigo is normally reserved for business talk, or when you're speaking with someone above you in rank, which won't always be all that relevant to a foreign person, as you're kind of... "outside" of Japanese social rankings. (Unless you work there.) Knowing keigo is a great way to impress older people though, I'm sure. But, if you're just planning on traveling and speaking casually with people, you'll be fine with teineigo. In fact, using overly formal Japanese with someone you're close with will just have the opposite effect, and can sound strange. Once you've befriended someone, you usually switch to more casual styles, either a casual form of teineigo, or just futsuutai altogether.
  11. Living in Japan as a foreigner - AMA

    Yes, it's simply too hard for many of them to bother giving it any real attention. Japanese people do learn English from an early age in school, but because of the factors I mentioned above, they rarely actually learn much from these lessons. The people who are quite skilled at English probably learned most of it from the internet and self study. I think religion is more of a cultural thing than an actual sign of faith in Japan. I can only speak from personal experiences and from the information I know from my friends and what not, but it seems like most people go to shrines and temples more because it's a social and cultural "norm" instead of strong faith. That being said, it does seem to be important to them. At least from what I've seen, people act very respectful towards shrines and temples, and many do go there to pray fairly often. Though, once again, I think this type of prayer is more of a cultural thing than actual faith, but nonetheless, it's fairly important to Japanese people from my knowledge. As far was what the most common religions are, I believe shintoism, the native Japanese "religion", (which is more of a collective term than an actual singular religion,) and buddhism are the two most widespread religions in Japan. There are quite a lot of buddhist temples, and as well as shrines for shintoism around in Japan. Christian churches etc are far fewer in number, though there are some of those too. Most native Japanese people will go to either a local shrine or temple for holidays and what not.
  12. Shuffle! Sequel announced

    I think he meant a digital version in general, not a translated one. Essence+ only exists in physical versions.
  13. Living in Japan as a foreigner - AMA

    Haha, nice. I don't have a license, not to mention that Japanese people drive on the wrong side of the road. (*ノωノ) Cool cars, though. Well, uh, I have a couple of pictures of people in traditional clothing from Kyoto: I didn't really take any pictures of cars there, as ... well, it's not really something I'm intrested in, personally. But, I did find this on my phone: There's a front of a car, at least, lol. There's lots of pretty unique car types in Japan, most that look like this. They are pretty short and... square, lol.
  14. Shuffle! Sequel announced

    Yeah. I'm trying to stay optimistic, though. Hopefully since this is a direct sequel, we'll see some more love for the original style that the first game had, and less of what they did to Spiral!
  15. Shuffle! Sequel announced

    It's a pretty well known game in Japan. There's a reason why Navel has been milking the series with fandisks and expanded versions for so long. (Heck, their most recent game, Spiral! Is also set in the same universe.) Sure took them long enough to make the actual sequel, though. As for the votes from western fans goes, there's been many different releases of Shuffle in the west, none of them all that great, with the most recent one being both censored, and having a poor translation. The first MG release also had a rather shoddy translation, and their fixed version is no longer on sale, due to license issues. Not to mention, the west hasn't been able to play the "full" version of shuffle, "Essense+", which is by far the best way to experience the game, with tons of added routes and content, as well as an expanded scenario for the core game. Yes, he passed away in 2016. He is credited on the sequel's website as the series' "creator". It's possible he had some notes or something that the current writers can go off, who knows. But, the writing team will be different, ofc.
