Nah, it's not a typo, here is a long and complicated explanation:Those could be typos too? Waitting is also a typo.
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.

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.Nah, it's not a typo, here is a long and complicated explanation:

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.
Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Lite - 1

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.
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.

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.
I though LB was airing on the 5th. >.>
1. Because it's not KyoAni
2. Because it's J.C. Staff
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.

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.I meant the first episode of the Lite.

And so Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is the first anime I've picked up this season which I hadn't intended to. It was quite a good episode, could be a great series if it keeps that up.
I wish more anime had perfect girls like Amagami.
No because Amagami has the has the most perfect likable group of girls in the history of everything.
