you ever just look at a picture and know that it's going to become an overused meme?
And that's it.
Considering Mousou Telepathy isn't as followed as say, Tomo-chan that might not happen. That is actually kinda surprising considering MT has a lot of pages and panels like that.
>volume 3 is march 2016
>over a year ago
Never realised we were this much behind.
This reminded me of potepic for some reason.
So the reason why we were getting a page a day was because they were preparing this dump and we'll start getting 2 pages a day again, right?
No, considering we've had these extra page dumps following the "2 a day" uploads. What's likely going on is that the guys at HvS have scaled back to a page a day intentionally, that way while we might be some pages behind the jap releases we also won't have to sit through hiatuses between the jap releases, since the original jap manga also follows the "page a day" format. This also allows them an easier time of following up releases with the extra pages of a given volume.
The reason they gave for cutting down to one page a day was because they were busy with college. So actually, it's entirely possible that they'll go back to 2 a day soon, since summer's getting close.
That first and second picture is making my chest hurt
MANAMI IS MY WIFE
I LOVE MANAMI
Well well, what do we have in here?
Asami is undoubtedly a cute. I need more of her.
Do you think she realized it?
I love those little froggers.
She's the reason why Toda's autismus genes managed to survive to this day: it produces autistic best girls.
Surely he means this.
Now make a dancing gif with both.
Reverse repost. Had to make an edit.
Bowl-head a cute.
>That first pic
Damn, Jugemujugemugokounosurikirekaijarisuigyonosuigyoumatsuunraimatsufuuraimatsukuunerutokoronisumutokoroyaburakoujinoyabukoujipaipopaipopaiponoshuuringanshuuringannoguurindaiguurindainoponpokopiinoponpokonaanochoukyuumeinochousuke can be pretty cute when the author feels like drawing her that way. I'm starting to understand where Toda's coming from.
Elsewhere, they mentioned staying on one-a-days, so that when when we hit the end of Volume 4, Nobel have just started Volume 5. This would be to keep us from having a break between volumes and to sync up release and translation.
you are like a little baby. watch this.
Someobody with a twitter account should send these to Nobel.
>Not sending Bowl-cuts greentext and getting a bonus chapter out of it.
The names one would go over her head since it's just an in-joke from here.
I am rooting for Bowl-cut.
Bowl-cut best girl.
Has Nandeshou gone too far this time?
Is this some kinda dialect thing?
I'm happy that it turned out that way but I feel like Mana has started going downhill. Hanging out with other girls and such.
>Nanano confessing to Mana
Yeah it's 知ている but kansai.
Nairobi confirmed for stress eater.
>oh my gosh I've created a huge misunderstanding
>I'M GOING TO MAKE AN EVEN BIGGER ONE NOW
Nandakke you dumb fucking cunt.
her tits are huge for a reason
Good dog. Nephilim trained him well.
Do it, Nananabatman! We believe in you!
Notmana is a retard, but i'm excited how this will turn out.
Best one so far
Nokama better not drop the ball with this. I don't want another Tomo-chan.
>Oh dearie me two of the hottest guys in school are desperately in love with me.
>Whatever should I do?
>I know! I'll dump the one that's already asked me out and show 0 interest in the one that's too autistic to talk to me.
Namaste, you're killing me.
My insecurity lets me bond better with Nisekoi who is my waifu.
so why aren't we getting two pages anymore?
at this rate might as well wait half a year to see the end of this vol
Maybe they're the source of Notmypresident's esper powers.
It's one of the thread memes, but not one of the good ones
I've been in every thread since the first one, this must be some way post bump limit stuff.
I think it started near the end of the last thread. It's just one guy claiming that the "getting Nakobungo's name wrong" meme is a sign of insecurity. As far as I can tell, no one is amused by this.
People are still misspelling Nakano's name wrong "on purpose" after a bunch of people threw a fit over the fact that they'd be writing it wrong. Several people got bored of it very quickly since it wasn't even funny to begin with and the people who misspelled her name got extremely agitated and defensive which led to the general conclusion that the only reason they're still misspelling the name intentionally after the joke stopped being funny is because they're extremely insecure about having thought her name was something like Nanako or whatever.
Of course there are some extremely insecure people like >>678512 who can't even handle the thought that several people thought that their obvious insecurities made them look pathetic.
I know the A-word gets thrown around a bit too much, but anon I think you are legitimately autistic. The "fit throwing" and "extreme agitation" was just banter and amusement after a couple of anons happened to mistake her name the same way before it turned into a running joke. I wish you all the best, and hope you take greater care to read social situations more effectively in the future.
Oh wait, I get it.
You were one of the ones reading it as Nanako, weren't you?
You seem really fixated on that word, anon. I wonder why?
I'm misspelling Nambla on purpose for fun.
Im starting to think that there was nothing wrong with the punposting earlier, that the same fucking person was having an autistic shitfit.
So how much longer do you think we can keep this up before we run out of new names for Nagorno-Karabakh?
How the fuck did you make the jump from "people are really beating this dead horse of a joke" to "it must be because they're insecure"?
Now, I'm aware that the logic behind this is perfectly solid in your mind, but friend, I guarantee to you it makes no fucking sense. Take a step back, look at the situation, the joke, your reaction to it, and people's reactions to your theory, do it patiently, and I think you'll see you've reached a pretty dumb conclusion regarding as to why people are spelling Nakano's name wrong (I'm even spelling it right here, to soothe your autism) .
>to soothe your autism
Don't do that, you're only spoiling the snowflake even more than he already is.
Just laugh at how pathetic he is.
Its very easy to see your bias, but when you have these:
There's definitely something more than just redditors masturbating over the next "arrow in the knee" joke. You even mention the "people's reaction to it". If people weren't insecure there wouldn't be such a deluge of posts (including yours) to try and cry, kick and scream that its absolutely wrong and that only one person could think that its not funny anymore. Its a very unnatural reaction to "ok the joke is old now", especially on imageboards. So when this reaction was observed several people just went to the natural conclusion that they're insecure about it. That's not even mentioning how people seem desperate to cram the overused joke into every post they possible can, which just makes the insecurity even more obvious.
Well you've already shown your bias so I'm sure what you wrote was just an elaborate way to try to show that you're totally not insecure and you are in fact totally laughing instead. Just like the rest of the people who have become extremely agitated and defensive ever since they were confronted with several people who say "ok the joke is old now, let's not ruin it entirely". At least I have provided good reason and proof (or should I say other have provided proof) of what I am saying.
You keep claiming that it's several people, but can you actually point out the posts that agree with you that aren't yours?
Anon, you're the insecure one.
>If people weren't insecure there wouldn't be such a deluge of posts (including yours) to try and cry, kick and scream that its absolutely wrong
>Ha, your saying that I'm wrong only proves that I'm right!
It's still just you, and you're still just as autistic as before. Congratulations on becoming a meme.
It's pretty much a given that you have autism, given how you tired to analyze the whole situation (and got it wrong). Here's the short and sweet of it.
>Couple anons misread Nakano as Nanako. Not just one person, but several made the same error. Given its nature, it's easy to understand the mistake
>Someone notices this and points it out
>"Oh shit, that's weird. Didn't realize."
>Some anons poke fun at the fact that multiple people made this mistake by deliberately
misspelling the name in ways that one couldn't possibly do so on accident
>One autist (see: (You)) suddenly comes along and spergs the fuck out over this, and keep sperging even when a new thread is made
>As of now, this one anon has become the new joke
I know there isnt much to talk about till next page, but shut the fuck up.
>Low effort and low quality hit-and-quit posts with easily understood reaction images all directed towards one single wall o' text post.
>this is somehow meant to convince outsiders looking in that you're winning the argument.
There's so much subtlety and nuance that goes into imageboard posting, somebody could write a book about it.
>Just like the rest of the people who have become extremely agitated and defensive
Do you understand the irony of what you just typed?
Do you know what projection is?
These threads are great.
He's not autistic. I'm familiar with the likes of him, as I work in this area and see this everyday. He's mostly that:
>Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others' feelings. People affected by it often spend a lot of time thinking about achieving power or success, or about their appearance. They often take advantage of the people around them. The behavior typically begins by early adulthood, and occurs across a variety of situations.
Why does anon care about Nyanpasu so much?
It's hard to tell exactly what people have just by reading stuff they posted online, he only made 2 posts about a very specific subject.
I agree his posts show he has no clue what other people are thinking or why they're posting the dumb wrong name meme, but this isn't only a trait of cluster B personality disorder people, or schizoids. Autists have this problem too. You see it in other diseases too. It's a somewhat common symptom for people with psychiatric disorders.
Besides that he also has a problem organizing his ideas, his thought process is almost 100% right but he slips and can't manage to make a totally coherent point. This problem is subtle but i believe it is there too.
These 2 things combined make me think it's more likely he's autistic or schizoid, and not a narcissist. And since online people use autist as an umbrella for this kind of behavior, and informally it's a term everyone recognizes, I think it's fair to call this guy autistic for being mad about memes.
Mousou Telepathy threads are the best.
Several people think this is pretty funny.
Fuck, I can't stop giggling.
I'm definitely one of them.
>not just skipping over incomprehensible japanese names when reading
That is the cutest thing to come out of these threads.
Drawfag and nofun turbo-autist, thank you both for making this possible.
New page, but it's just a setup.
God damn it. social pressure is a bitch.
>my armchair psychology tells me that he is definitely mentally wrong in the head. There can't be anything wrong with me.
Have we reached the maximum amount of insecurity? This is even past the whole "everyone who ever disagreed with me is the same person" that you've been spouting. Maybe get your testosterone levels checked? I hear that could be a cause.
I am several anons and I agree that calling NASDAQ the wrong names is pure insecurity.
Several anons think that there's something legitimately wrong with you.
Your continued escalation of something inconsequential is what is drawing us to continue to prod at you. You seem fixated upon calling others insecure as you desperately spew defensive drivel. You really do need to look up how projection works.

I'm glad we're only getting one page a day, I never want these threads to end.
If someone in academia could get past our problematic ickyness, it'd probably happen.
All the ones i've seen basically just talk about le nonymoose is lejiun and epic raids. Nothing about how we are when let to our own devices.
Epic Win For Anonymous was a cringefest cover to cover.
I actually contemplated writing a thesis on it a few years back but decided against it.
Check out "e-tribes". It's a fancy name for what we call board culture.
Or, I guess "online tribe" is the English term.
polite sage for off topic addendum
E-Tribe (Hangul: 이트라이브) is a South Korean record production duo consisting of Ahn Myung-won and Kim Young-deuk. They are most known for producing “Gee” by Girls' Generation, “U-Go-Girl” by Lee Hyo-ri, “Yayaya” by T-ara, “It's You” by Super Junior, and “I Know” by Se7en.
Huh. Well this certainly expands my dong
I messed up my terms.
You fucked up. Now this thread will devolve into /kpop/ general.
And in fifty posts, we're gonna be talking about literary inflation viv-a-vis the age of discovery.
>He's still acting like he's not the only one getting this buttblasted over a fucking joke
And to think that someone around here said /a/ makes no content.
What are the odds it's Mana waiting outside instead of Nandegeso?
Probably none since she said she would meet with him after his club.
What a useless umbrella.
Its transparent plastic covering the holes
Shimizu asking the important fucking questions.
Can't just be Mana doing all the work all the time.
So he's finally over that initial "OMG-PERFECT-WOMAN" high and actually thinking for once.
I'm not used to this kind of development in manga love triangles.
>he isn't a dimwit with no filter after all
>he was actually playing the deep game and hiding his true intentions, even in his thoughts
>at first he was just after her body and only now has he actually fallen for her
Honestly, I still think he's pretty retarded for thinking this hard about it while actually talking with her
This is that page that guy who is reading the raws posted a while back.
The raws are currently at 381. I don't read jap, so I have no idea what is happening in them.
>It takes him 80 more pages to realize he's in their way
>She's quiet and womanly
Excellent taste, Shimizu.
Do you guys ever imagine Nabooru reading your mind and being horrified at what she sees? Not the lewds, but the inward hatred and total lack of self-worth that would keep you from ever saying anything to her that could even be misconstrued as a flirt
You mean cringe at the embarassing, whiney self-pity?
I think it's kind of the opposite. Like, he's now questioning whether he actually likes her, or if he just fooled himself into thinking he does because she's the type of girl he thinks he should like.
I think that's what's going on too.
I took the liberty of translating this page. Major spoilers obviously, so read ahead at your own risk.
It's really bothering you isn't it anon?
I can't tell if you're actually the meme man himself or just someone fucking with him at this point.
These are the best threads on /a/ right now.
Why can't I save this gif anons? What is this sorcery? Does Namibia-chan hate me?
Because pixiv displays video/gifs as a series of PNGs flashing really fast for some buttfucking stupid reason. It's not even APNG, just many PNGs
It's because pixiv uses "ugoira" animations which are just the series of images needed to make the animation. I guess this makes it easier on pixiv artists, since all I assume they would have to do is upload the images and pixiv spits out the animation with some parameters. But it does make it harder on the average internet user to grab the animation, you'll need to use an ugoira converter to do that.
>easier on the artists
If you're skilled enough to draw 48 frames of animation, you should know how to use photoshop to combine them into a 2-second GIF or APNG. Even if you don't know because you never cared, it's a google away. I learned how to make a gif from scratch in like five minutes.
There used to be a userscript to convert ugoiras to webm's or gif's, but pixiv changed something a month or so ago and the dude maintaining the script quit. You'll just have to save every frame and combine them yourself for your running Nepgear.
do you have a link to the script?
I could probably fork it.
>Having an internal monologue at all
You've gotta plug yourself in more. It leads to crippling anxiety and a lack of purpose.
Looks like third-party bants to me.
Nazunoka will never be released from her curse.
You don't even need a proprietary program. Making a gif in GIMP is basic as fuck and you can even skip tagging if you use the auto-frame-delay feature.
It's at github(dot)com/ele-ala-ele/pixiv_ugoira_gif if you want to have a look.
Yeah, dialogue is healthier. Also you have to do it out loud.
>inward hatred and total lack of self-worth
Speak for yourself, faggot. My life is fucking awesome thanks to this STEM degree.
Is STEM really that worth it? I'm trying to get my degree, but I keep having to suppress my urge to go full NEET and draw anime girls and make music.
I see that Nadesico is ningen after all
Namaewowasureta is bretty cute with pigtails.
Not that anon but
Only if you're lucky and have good contacts and networking skills when you graduate so that someone can hook you up. Your degree carries an unspoken "expiration date" and most companies expect you to land that job within your first couple of months after graduation. If you don't, tough luck. A lot of them, especially tech-related ones, are going to pooinloos with H1Bs and degree mill papers as well.
It's been two years since I graduated; nobody wanted me fresh out of uni, and they sure as hell aren't going to want me now.
Thanks anon. Guess I can count on NEETdom as a realistic backup.
Depends on what you want to do with it, what the degree is in, and where you get it.
I'm an astrophysics undergrad right now and despite being a niche field with few job openings, there are also few people in it anyway. My networking skills are about as poor as they come but there are so many open positions that I had profs contacting me out of the blue asking if I wanted a research job. I'm working full time this summer, expecting to publish my work and get my name out there officially in the literature, and I've never even had to write a resume. I know an undergrad who's currently spending four months running high-atmosphere radar in a military base above the Arctic Circle because he looked through a list of our uni's faculty and emailed the one whose work sounded coolest. It's absurdly easy to get a job in my department.
It is a very, very different story if you're in something like biology, where there are so many people it's almost impossible to make connections. I had a high school acquaintance who went into medical biology and she didn't know a single person who got a summer research job.
Also keep in mind I only pay attention to the pure academic route, not industry. My entire knowledge of the industry side is being told that if I don't manage to get into a Masters or PhD program I should look into financial modelling for banks, since apparently they like physics grads (something about our balance of coding proficiency, problem solving skills, and familiarity with Fourier analysis and PDEs). It may be a cinch, or it may be next to impossible.
It varies a lot from field to field, but a shitload of STEM stuff will land you at least a half-decent job that won't make you want to kill yourself.
I just finished med school, I'm in a residency program, and I'm doing pretty good. It's not exactly STEM in the way people think about STEM, but I've heard some people say it is STEM so whatever.
I have a few friends who got different STEM degrees between them and the only one I can think of who's in a really bad spot is close to 100% his fault (according to the stories he tells me, at least. He even says it's totally his fault but maybe he's being too hard on himself).
To be more specific about what I mean with pretty good situations to be in: my friends don't work slave hours, they have good career plans, with good wages, they work doing technical jobs that can't really be done by any random person out of the street, their enjoyment at work ranges from neutral to really enjoying what they do.
The degree won't be a magical thing though. My friends are almost all social retards like me but during college and after graduation they did the bare minimum networking they needed to not screw themselves.
And one final thought: degrees aren't the be all end all to having a good life, but they aren't the worthless pieces of shit a lot of people online have been pushing recently.
There's a reason why you see people making jokes of getting out of college and becoming McDonalds employees in comic and political cartoon format. It's because those are done by liberal arts people. Always be skeptical when you find someone who said they got a degree and it was/is 100% useless, chances are it's some joke degree from a college that shouldn't even exist.
>Always be skeptical when you find someone who said they got a degree and it was/is 100% useless, chances are it's some joke degree from a college that shouldn't even exist.
I didn't realize until a short time ago, but there are legitimate universities, not diploma mills, that are open-admission. Everywhere I applied to was selective and you couldn't get in without a certain minimum average based on your program (and in same cases, based on the high school ranking) but apparently there are some universities that accept everyone and weed them out from there. I'd bet that system ends up with a lot more people either dropping out and whining that university is a waste of money, or getting a degree they shouldn't have gotten.
But there are indeed a lot of programs that are bloated and useless too.

>I just finished med school, I'm in a residency program, and I'm doing pretty good.
How in the FUCK did you swing that with a STEM degree that was any more rigorous than you're basic Human Bio/Physiology? My experience in academia is that 90% of research scientists are parasites that are concerned with nothing more than funding themselves with government grantbux, and the remaining 10% are ostensibly indistinguishable. If you're retarded like I was and major in something where these fuckers are the ones teaching the classes chemistry, they'll go out of their way to put in the minimum effort for teaching and sabotage the GPA of the entire class. Like, it was so bad where I was that the 90th percentile for my major was a 3.7.
We're in the same basket. What the fuck am I gonna do?
Try being out of school for nine years without anything beyond scutwork jobs on your joke of a resume
Bust your balls getting a job NOW because it will never get easier with time
Lol, that was good shit.
This might be better
This is the face of a broken man.
that hits close to home
What are we gonna do on the bed?
The face of a cucked man.
>Big bro why are you lazing about?
>I only lazy about when I have no motivation.
>But you lazy about every day...
>Big bro why are you lazing about?
>I only laze about when I'm getting cucked.
>But you laze about every day...
Why people care about someone else getting a girlfriend?
"I don't give a shit" is right.
Because he loves her? And now he "can't have it"? And now an younger guy cucked him?
No, I mean everyone else you dumbass.
The people texting each other.
Because they are young? Because at their age this is unprecedented? Just imagine the same with "murder", new things, strange things, abnormal things, they all generate ruckus and gossip.
Also, a very strong mark of Asian countries is your social perception (this is best view in shoujo), specially when people demonstrate jealousy of you.
>Wow! She going out with the hottest senpai! I'm so jealous!
>Wow! That couple is so beautiful together! I'm so jealous!
>Wow! That loser Yuuki Rito suddenly got all the girls in the school on his feet! How come!? I'm so jealous!
I'd guess it's largely because they're happy for him. Mostly though, from their perspective, Shimizu started going out with a girl without telling anyone, making it kind of a secret relationship, and people are naturally really curious about information that's being kept from them. I don't think they'd be talking about it nearly as much if Shimizu was openly going out with someone.
Because normalfags gossip.
Soon he'll be discussing Eva with autists, ricing his Gentoo install, deadlifting 1000lbs and wishing for the Holocaust to happen for real.
One time I pretended my phone was my waifu and came all over the screen.
Weren't you a jockey in hs? The only thing to talk about is how many chicks/who were the ones you hooked up with.
Life is carefree at that age, don't you remember?
They're teenagers, stupid. Teenagers, or at least the more popular ones, tend to gossip all the fucking time.
>Toda has a younger emotionless sister as well
With no survivors.
She's appeared a couple times before.
Whoops, you're right. For some reason I thought that was his older sister.
Is Shimizu actually retarded? I expected more from him.
I think he's some unholy abomination of an autist with ADHD that is still somehow a normalfag.
He's doing that hand motion in real life, isn't he? It's not coloured in. He can't stop fidgeting, and wears his heart on his sleeve. It's more likely that he's ADD, but not ADHD.
I actually know a guy like this. It's kind of sad, he doesn't know what he wants. Plenty of relationships and none of them went anywhere.
He is completely honest and lacks any social skills but has no anxiety about it.
He's pretty hyper though.
>I'm surrounded by retards and mana.jpg
I knew a guy exactly like this. He's got ADHD and he's some strange hybrid of autist and normalfag. He's pretty good looking and girls always wanted his dick since middle school, but he was too busy watching anime and building gunpla to even realize it. He even played soccer too, spoopy.
The ideal human being.
That anon who compared Shimizu's interest in Nike to a bird liking something shiny was right.
I thought this was the chapter we were gonna see Nathan lose her shit. Also, I guess Shimizu either doesn't want to think about Nicole with another guy, or we'll get the "If you're happy, I'm happy" line next chapter?
And here we were thinking Toda was the cuck....
I don't know if autism is quite right, but there's something broken in Shimizu.
His imaginary self is even smiling.
I think he just wants everyone to be happy. This is his very obtuse way of realizing that dating Sempai wasn't actually all that important to him at all.
Niconiconii needs to just hurry up and realize her true feelings for Mana already. She's not gonna get anywhere with these autists.
Toda is a normal cuck, Shimizu is a leftist cuck.
>translating そうか as okay
I don't think that's getting the right connotation across.
What is the right connotation ?
Wouldn't it be more like
"Oh, I see"?
Which is close enough to just "Okay" in this kind of situation in my opinion
A lot of times translators also go with "Oh, is that so?" or "Oh, really?"
Well, think of what contexts in anime you hear characters say "sō ka."
Now we need a nigger with cornrow edit.
There it goes, Shimizu is officially an Honorary Swede now.
Shimizu was actually born with an upside-down mouth. The truth is, he's frowning all of the time and tries to hide it with an upbeat attitude.
And here I thought I could escape reality for a little while, reading mango.
Too stupid to understand he's getting imaginarily cucked. God bless.
Even worse, he's imagining himself getting cucked.
For a moment i thought this was today's latest page.
Even after looking at the real page, i'm still not convinced.
Thus Shimizu realizes he's not interested in Nanisore and instead wants a croissant sandwich on his dick
Please no. She deserves better than that.
Reverse harem when? It'd be Mana in Heaven
>Only loses her shit in her mind.
Seems like a fitting localized name for Nonowa.
>slipping into country dialect
>can't outwardly display her inner thoughts and emotions and instead takes the non-conflict route
This is starting to be painful because of empathizing...
Apparently Natasha's mental image of herself is from North Carolina.
One day someone will discover a dialect that accurately maps to Kansai-ben no they won't, there will never be an accurate way to translate dialects
Of course there are, for obvious reasons.
Namco's starting to give off some yandere vibes.
No single American accent matches the stereotype that people from the Kansai region:
-are merchants and generally focus on money
-are more emotionally open
-are more "worldly" or streetwise
-really love boke-tsukkomi comedy
You can set up some of that, but not all of that, with different accents and dialects- and whichever one you pick will produce different results. For example, N.Ayako speaking in southern drawl here might make people think she's a hick, when that isn't what they're going for- but if you gave her a Brooklyn accent to capture the streetwise angle (like they did in Azumanga Daioh) it produces a very different image. What are your obvious reasons? Don't say "they're obvious", let's have a conversation anon
If you're british, a lot of that could be used with Yorkshire accents. Except maybe the emotionally open part, but even then, only for given values of emotion.
It also comes down to the audience- British people would get a Yorkshire accent but Americans won't. Thanks to Hollywood's global reach most people get US Brooklyn, country, and valley girl accents, but that's about it. Tricky business.
That's why it's very hard to translate comedy - It relies of people "Getting" it and won't work to certain crowds if they don't get thing. You can't subvert somebody's expectations if there's no expectation to subvert.
Great webm, and agreed on the translation issues with comedy. Translating refrigerator manuals must be boring but at least there isn't an accent barrier.
It's obvious, and it's about phonetics. Just study comparative linguistics and you'll know.
A little example: Japan can't say "L" and says "R", but Kansai says "L" instead of "R" - such thing can be found in regional accents everywhere in the world, it's called "reversed rotacism".
Next time, if you don't know about something, don't pretend there are no answers for it, piece of shit.
Too bad you're terrible at discussing anything. Enjoy being so educated all by yourself, I'll continue to say what has been obvious for years: there is no accurate translation for Kansai-ben.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
He's talking about the cultural impact of certain accents as used by fictional characters. Lingustics has nothing to do with it. In lnguistics, being misunderstood constantly is a black mark against your dialect, but in comedy, it's hilarious and a stable. Forgive the 3dpd, but it communicates my point nicely.
One o't crossbeams 'as gone out o' skew on't treadle
I'm not here to educate an adult on something one could learn by himself. And if you insist on thinking that accents can't be translated, you're a stubborn moron who likes to talk about things you have not a clue about.
Also, thank you, I'll enjoy being educated.
>"it's so obvious, I shouldn't need to explain myself"
>"just study this obscure shit branch of an already shit field, you retard"
>proceeds to barely address the point
Good. Have a nice day.
Probably the best thing to do is not translate it. The best thing for the sake of comedy is to just educate yourself until there's no need to dumb anything down and you get all of it. Unfortunately that's obviously impractical, since I doubt many people are willing to learn a language in depth in order to get a joke.
Speaking of jokes, here's someone who is quick to brag about how smart they are while completely missing the point of an easy to follow discussion.
>I'm not here to educate you, Shitlord!
The problem is not that he doesn't know, but he speaks as he knows, when he's clearly ignorant on the matter.
Of course, why I should?
No, he's clearly in the right here and you're missing the point.
Oh wait, this is episode 3 of Autist-Anon, isn't it? You know, you really don't need to turn this into a tradition.

Inb4 claims that multiple nonexistent anons are on his side and that all naysayers are just cripplingly insecure.
Just give them a welsh accent. Instantly recogniseable.
Didn't the english translation of Excel Saga do that with Sumiyoshi?
Or was that Scottish?
Really nice webum.
It sort of does feel like it's him. The arrogance, lack of self awareness and hypocrisy, inability to talk about the central point of the discussion while acting like it's obvious.
I speak 4 different languages and have watched quite a bit of native media from all 4 of them and translations between them, there are a lot of things translators don't translate properly because of ignorance, laziness, or because they think their way of doing it is the proper one. Accents and regional dialects are not one of them, that UK webm gives a pretty basic idea of how even in relatively small areas there's a lot of variance between the dialects. With how many cultural differences, accents, slang exclusive to areas, what people in the area will or will not publicly talk about, how formal or informal they are, etc, etc, you'd have a really hard time finding two perfect matches in the world, as far as how the people in a region talk. Concessions can be made and we can get approximations for the cartoon we're watching or comic we're reading that are adequately functional, but something will be lacking more often than not.
Things like phonetics are entirely irrelevant to translating accents as compared to cultural significance.
Before I saw >>682349 I came to the same conclusion. No accent really denotes any particular taste in comedy, except maybe the vague "Chicago" accent. I guess California enjoyed Manzai in the early 20th century, but that's all they fit in with.
The instant hostility was also a tip-off that it's him.
I know the perfect voice for this scenario.
What a confused and aggressive person.
I'm going to laugh so hard if it's not the same guy.
/a/ have a serious autism problem, you guys can be the next ones.
The problem is "Bostonian" or "Chicagoan" connote with urban cultures here, while Kansai-ben connotes with rural cultures in Japan. So they keep going with the "rural" American Southern accent as a translation.
It sucks ass though because even though they're both rural, Kansai-ben and American Southern don't sound alike in any way, shape, or form.
What are you talking about? Hanshin and Kyoto are like the second and third largest metropolitan regions in Japan.
He was the first person I thought about when someone mentioned Boston.
