Biggest plot twist in history.

A moment of silence for the SNK fandom still not getting it right.

Additional information:

  • The booklet does say der Jäger, which is another translation error. The correct plural would be die Jäger. 
  • Yes, the script is very washed-out in the booklet. It is (barely) readable, though, and it definitely does not read what everyone would expect.
  • This also makes a lot more sense than “Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die Jäger”. (They are the food and we are the hunters)
  • I am German, living in Germany, talking German 24/7, and there’s official material as proof, don’t fight me on this. However, I’m not the first person to point this out - just trying to spread the message. It’s completely okay that most people in the fandom didn’t realize the error - nobody expects you to. But now that you know, you might just as well use the actual quote!

Just picking up my textbooks for next semester.

I want to mention that this brain scientist (I don’t know if there’s a proper translation from 脳科学者, which spells out brain and scientist) named Kenichirou Mogi (as expected, english wiki doesn’t have much info on him) shared how effective manga is on this Japanese TV show called "The Most Useful School in the World" (世界一受けたい授業).

He said that people reading manga has the content registered into their brain much more effectively (in other words, they read faster and comprehended much more) than those who read text-only books. With such result, some school, at least in Japan, started making textbooks in manga format so that the students can comprehend the materials much easier and faster than the ones with text-only.

The trade-off for this method is that, the readers will lack imagination. Text only books (basically novels) enhances the readers’ imagination skills because they’re imagining the scene that’s described through words. So such manga format is (or at least should) only used for subjects related to math and science.

In addition, a different brain scientist named Toshiyuki Sawaguchi said in this another Japanese TV show called Honma Dekka (there’s no way of translating this), that having comical theme along with information (like some theories in science, latest political news, educational system etc.) can make the listener an easier time registering the information. So by adding some comical themes in manga (which is pretty easy to do compared to just text), the students will have easier time registering the given concepts.

I wanted to add this in before anyone going “WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE TEXTBOOKS” kind of thing.

Honestly, even though some fangirls are only supportive of him because of his looks, the people in Japan really took his win to heart.

Yuzuru Hanyu was not a typical Japanese Olympian. He was an inspiration and hope because he came from Sendai, an area close to the epicenter of the March 2011 earthquake that struck.
He not only suffered like the rest of Japan, he was on the verge of giving up his dream of figure skating until Japan gave him enough funding to head to Toronto to train (because his usual skating rink was destroyed by the earthquake).

When Hanyu won, it was a lesson that anything can happen if one tries enough. Hanyu was going to give up his dream, yet he pushed on with the support of others, ultimately winning gold and breaking the 100 point barrier in a short event.

Japan welcomes him back and encourages others to not forget their dreams, regardless of the situation. And now Hanyu even said that he will make use of himself in his hometown to continue helping with the recovery from the earthquake.

The most beautiful cat cafe I have been to. It’s called Temari no Ouchi (Temari’s house) in Tokyo, Japan. The soft music and ambience feels like you are in a Studio Ghibli film. Had to take the Japan Railway there, but was totally worth the extra trip, & unlike the central Tokyo cat cafes, this one has no time limit, so feels totally relaxed. Several girls were even sleeping there amongst the cats.
