    I may have slightly misunderstood your intentions a bit then. When you quoted my saying that stuff and said I meant something, I thought you meant to say I meant it. But I didn't mean it, at least not without everything else that went with it. Quoting only a bit of it and using it to argue that I was making a certain claim would kill the point of my making a longass post with various logical constructs in place. All the more so if it was used to support a very brief and otherwise unrelated idea that I only provided a logical basis for out of stubbornness.

    In any case, I was just clarifying that that wasn't actually my opinion but a harsh statement that comes off as the logical conclusion of the most brutal constraints.

    No problems o_o.

    My post only meant to clarify that I don't actually condone what Thiery Henry did. When I said he did what he was supposed to, it was after I put on a lot of hyperboles and conditions and from the perspective of purely competitive play. Yes it's cheating but in competitive play, cheating is a given. That's why we have officials. And cheating isn't actually harmful to a sports. Which was the biggest point I was making in that post where I originally said it. Anh Minh was saying that cheating leads to the decay of sports while I was saying that in competitive sports, foul play is to be expected and actually garners more attention to the sports, leading to its growth, not decay.

    Most of the arguments I made for competitive sports in my posts in reply to Anh Minh were somewhat from personal experience because I have been involved in many small competitive sports (mostly e-sports) community where no money was involved and we still took the competition seriously and did everything we could to win. Mostly within rules. But even if we broke rules, it's because we wanted desperately to win. And that's more respectful to sports than just pussying out of contesting a call to maintain face before a crowd.

    But don't worry about misunderstanding my posts etc. I do this all the time. I put constraints on my arguments and what I say isn't necessarily my opinion but just an argument. I play the devil's advocate all the time. It's fun that way. It can feel hypocritical sometimes to argue for things you don't believe in but I believe that arguments, and discussions in general, are grounds to challenge beliefs and gain new perspectives. It's too bad that most people get offended and take it personally. I don't get offended by discussing things, no matter how heated and obnoxious things get. I sometimes act like I got offended to see the reaction of my partner but that's about it.

    Basically, I love arguing and I will try to keep arguments going until it gets too repetitive and redundant or I find some other place with a more interesting discussion going on or until I get something else on my plate.

    So no worries.

    Maybe I should say "Ganbate totoum" too?

    Well they must've liked him, because he's probably the most sympathetic editor in the story after Hattori-alpha.

    Total manly tear fest ... and it gets even more intense later on. Another 40 odd eps to go I'll have you know!

    All I can say is - it only gets better.

    I check the wires pretty often, so I almost never miss one of mine.

    Today is the day for RK - Shin Kyoto-hen. Hopefully someone gets the sub out pretty quickly.

    Dayum, how much time do you people think I have??? My Mondays don't look busy enough to you with four shows? You're the second one to ask!

    Give me about 30 minutes.

    Je pense que t'auras calé suite à mon silence radio que je n'ai pas eu le temps de me pencher sur l'interview. Ca me semble hors de mes capacités, de toute façon, je n'arrive pas à m'en sortir convenablement sans retranscription digitale (pas très joliment dit, mais tu comprends l'idée) pour rechercher les kanji un peu trop mystérieux, et j'ai eu beau taper quelques phrases de l'itw dans Google pour tenter de la retrouver sur le net, on dirait qu'aucun Japonais ne s'est éclaté à la recopier.
    J'espère que tu arriveras quand même à t'en sortir pour avoir une traduction digne de ce nom D:

    That was about a year ago, so at this point I think I'm all good with typical anime shows again. I have been meaning to check out Usagi Drop, though... thanks for the recommendations.
