    Those could be typos too? Waitting is also a typo.
    Nah, it's not a typo, here is a long and complicated explanation:
    I hate it when someone smorks in my face." For whatever reason, the English word "smoke" is often rendered as "smork" in Japan. The issue is how the Japanese perceive certain sounds, especially the "r" phoneme that's not familiar to them. Because Japanese is a syllable-based language in which you can express sounds like ka, ki, ku, ke or ko, but not the consonant "k" by itself, English words like "hello" "goodbye" or "beer, please" must be forced through this rather alien phonetic system, resulting in haroh (the final "h" representing an elongating of the previous vowel), guddobai and biiru puriizu. The very first fast food I ate in Japan was a McDonald's clone called First Kitchen (home of the world famous scrambled egg burger, yech), and I remember some confusion as to whether the company was First Kitchen or Fast Kitchen. Without the full repertoire of English sounds, the Japanese render the latter as fasuto and the former as fahsuto, with the longer middle vowel serving the role of the "r" in "first." This rule gets over-generalized in some words, which is why the long middle sound of the word sumo-ku (smoke) ends up as "smork.

    Good to know, guess I'll be waiting for subs then. Do you watch stuff without subs now?

    Well, I already knew most of that thanks to taking that Japanese class back in university. But I didn't know smoke got translated to smork like that.

    Some shows I can get through without subs, only if they use fairly basic language though, I'd have no hope getting through something like Bakemono or Nisemono, or more recently Shinsekai Yori. I understood about 30-40% of what was said in Btooom! However since I read the manga I pretty much knew what was going on already, will definitely re-watch it later with when the subs are out though. I do however still prefer using subs since they can be helpful with learning words I didn't know.

    It's pretty weird that when I watch a subless anime clip on Youtube I can pretty much figure out what's going on.

    Makes me wonder if I'd be fluent in Japanese if I started watching subbed anime sooner.

    You would.

    Someone wanna spoil me "Who is THE Imouto?"

    Put it in a spoiler if so.

    5 episodes in and my money is on the Teacher, or Mr./Ms. Ikusu.

    Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Lite - 1
    ef - a tale of memories - 2
    Hunter X Hunter - 49
    Space Brothers - 26

    Watched that mini episode of KyoAni's new series. I was expecting it to be cute, yes, but not THIS cute.

    I don't know much about the plot but I did read up on what chuunibyou means today. Now I'm calling it right now if one/some of that girl's delusions are real, ŕ la Haurhi.

    WHERE have you been, it is the cutest thing to ever be created...!

    She has the delusional type where she thinks she has divine powers/Evil Eye type.

    Hence her claiming to have a Jaou-shin-gan/true eye of the devil/demon lord.

    Also the seal on her arm. So cute.

    I've been around, I just hadn't bothered to look up subs for the Lite episode until today.

    So the Lite episodes will be going up on Thursdays? The day after the real episodes?

    If they release them on the same day as the first episode it will be Saturdays.

    Kamisama no Memochou - 2/12
    Kokoro Connect - 13/17
    Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai - 2/12
    Sakamichi no Apollon - 2/12
    Sword Art Online - 13/25
    Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - 3/27

    Heard the opening of Kamisama no Memochou and I just had to see it. So far, it's interesting! Kokoro Connect's "last" episode was alright, but I really hope the other 4 get streamed. Don't have the money for Blu Ray. Started Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai just 'cause it suddenly popped into my head. Sword Art Online is cool as usual. Haven't been able to watch as much Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as I planned to; hope that won't decrease my enjoyment for it.

    Why were some fanboys on ANN.com complaining that the animation quality for LB in the previews was subpar?

    Looked fine to me. Guess my eyes are not 'refined'

    I'm reserving my full judgement of the animation quality until I see the first episode.

    Exactly. 5% of an episode is not sufficient to accurately judge animation quality. Ppl complaining the faces looked lifeless, choppy movement... etc.

    Two reasons:

    1. Because it's not KyoAni
    2. Because it's J.C. Staff

    I meant the first episode of the Lite.

    EDIT: My bad, it is Thursdays. I was going off of air date, and not day, the first episode aired on the 27th however I forgot to move back to September and was looking at the 27th of October.

    That seems pretty dumb. I still have my own worries though since...

    ...yeah.

    Oh, okay I understand now. I went to KyoAni's YouTube before and saw that it went up there on the 27th. That's where I got "Thursdays" from.
