Well, the "-un" ending is yet another cute way of nicknaming others in Japanese. It's related to "-rin" as an ending for young girls' names.

Actually what Ren-chon ends sentences with most...

I very much agree with you, Goty. It's been a while since I've seen this, so I can't remember the animation, but I'm fairly certain it wasn't bad. In any event, I wanted to point out that one of...

I am no figurine collector by any stretch, but a figure of Noda-chan would do nicely. Maybe Professor, too.

Good job on the new thread, Vexx. This is one manga I have a tendency to re-read over and over again. Although i have found that the voice of Noda inserts itself from the anime -- this is a good...

I'm not totally sure it made it's way into the anime, but in the manga, I *do* recall that Sae's latest was her first attempt at the shoujo-ai genre -- at the insistence of her editor, I think? Up...

I hadn't ever really thought about it too much, but I guess I assumed that Japan's schools made more of an effort for good food than American ones.

During the occupation, America instituted...

None is mentioned so far in the novels and I don't recall it in the anime at all, but it's a safe bet that it resembles Confucian Chinese (Xin dynasty, maybe?) money systems. The scheme for giving...

Ah, it's probably b/c "okaeri" and "tadaima" don't just mean "welcome home" and "I'm home" straight across like that. Sure, they work, but there's not a 1:1 translation. It's not like "tobira"...

Vexx and I are usually totally in synch, but in this case, I have to disagree slightly.
