When I said “… you are, statistically speaking, an American” in this week’s PortsCenter, this is to what I was referring.

Here’s the episode, in case you’re wondering.

Wow, Germany is the first non English speaking country. I don’t know if that means something… At least I watch mostly English game stuff on YouTube, because the German scene has come to an unwatchable MTV “we cut after every sentence” and “only kids and teen speech” style.



Capcom “touching up” localization of Ace Attorney Trilogy ⊟

You got me, Capcom. I will happily buy the Ace Attorney games again. I wasn’t particularly interested in the 3DS ports, but Capcom’s localization team (led by localization director Janet Hsu, who posted this info on Capcom-Unity) went back through and fixed up the text. Hsu outlined some changes:

"We have re-mastered the sound effects and background music, and yes, we’ve even proof-read the text again! Rejoice, for the miracle did happen! Finally! …Not that that’s something I should be saying too loudly… *hangs head in shame* 

All joking aside, the translation has received a much needed touch-up job, including some re-translations that I hope will help the dialogue flow more naturally, and tweaks that should make some of the more difficult cross-examinations easier to solve using, dare I say… LOGIC *gasp!*”

But if you want to avoid the localization entirely, you can do that. The 3DS release has the full Japanese text as well! How awesome! Ready to learn hella puns and legal vocabulary in Japanese? I’m not, but I’m damn sure gonna try!

BUY Ace Attorney games, upcoming releases

Welp, I’ll be getting this solely because it has dual-language support. Ace Attorney should be good for Japanese practice. :D

And I’m sure Japanese and English will be the only languages supported… The original DS trilogy was localized into major European languages, including voice acting. But every rerelease like Wii or iOS only has English text.

Dear Sailor Moon Crystal fans:



Please. Please please please.

Stop linking to illegal downloads of episodes.

The survival of Sailor Moon Crystal depends on people legally viewing the show on provided portals.

And — for once — there is no shortage of these. More or less globally.

So come on, guys.


Nice in theory, but in reality: how do you counter against the fact that Hulu and Crunchyroll are not available in Europe (or at least Germany)? And I have tried streaming on Crunchyroll, it loads so slowly that it practically doesn’t load at all. So I watch the episodes on YT until there is another official avenue I actually have access to.

You can watch niconico free with no ads. Ok the stream quality varies with a free account, but still. And even German subtitles! It’s a bit of a hassle to create an account but there are step by step explanations on the internet. So really no need to pirate!


Anonymous asked:

Even though I've flown a handful of times, I still have a big fear of flying and I'm afraid that the plane will lose control like a bag in the wind. Any advice to calm myself before flight and during turbulence?


I think what did it for me when I was a kid was realizing that the plane can’t and won’t just lose control like that. My dad would teach me about how airplanes fly and what turbulence really is and that helped me a lot. These airplanes are inherently stable and very safe. 

Watch some episodes of Mayday aka Air Crash Investigations, especially the older one. You learn where many safety technologies come from and how bad a plane really has to be hit to crash. Now that I think of it, many times the plane itself was perfectly fine, but people working in and around it were screwing up…



The new anime is better in a lot of things, the fidelity to the original dressing details, the jewelry, the shading, the scene composition (more simmilar to the manga, than the old anime), the effects, I even like the 3D parts!

But the expressivity… oh boy, that’s gone. And for those who keep telling me that it has the same expresivity as the manga, and that I am such a terrible fan for not knowing that… Well, this is for you. :D

And I don’t mean to start a war, it is okay if you like it, and it is okay if you don’t. Everyone has the right to show their opinion without the “YOU ARE NOT A TRUE SM FAN IF YOU COMPLAIN” thing. 

Edit: I’m sorry I used some offensive vocabulary using words as “retard” as insults or synonyms of stupid or idiot. I got carried away with the rage and disappointment, and I acted like an asshole. I apologise.

I edited the pictures so they won’t offend anyone anymore. 

Huh. I watched the video that Kotaku posted about the new anime being more like the manga, but these pictures kinda show the opposite.

I guess it’s just like any anime: kinda like the manga and kinda not.

I feel like extreme face expressions was really a 90’s thing (watching Slayers the first time, Lina’s face is constantly over doing it). At least I don’t see them in newer Anime (post 2010ish). Maybe that’s a bit of a reason why they toned it down.
