There was a subtle cultural joke in Nanako's scene. It involves the calendar date and Christmas cake. Pay attention to what she says. I had a hearty laugh out of it because I got the joke.

Cheers.

Had to look up for that:

Quote:
In Japan, age counts. Especially if you are a woman. The ideal of feminine beauty in Japan is youth and innocence. Plus, there's a lot of pressure on women to get married. So, if you're an unmarried woman, and heading towards thirty, we'd say that you're being "left on the shelf" or maybe "past your sell-by date".

In Japan though, they compare such women to a "Christmas Cake". It may well be sweet and delicious, but no one really wants any after the 25th. So, if you're an unmarried Japanese woman, after the age of twenty five, you're in extreme danger of becoming a Christmas Cake.
More tidbits here.

Poor, poor Nanako .

So Nanako bought the cake (50% off though) and convinced herself that someone will "buy" the Nanako-cake even after the 25th.

I don't care about Christmas. I still think Nanako's hot.

Fake accent though . I mean Nanako's using fake accent, not the seiyuu.

Wow that was my favourite scene too. It beats the heck out of the Dazed and Confused episode of Itchy and Scratchy. BEST DIALOGUE EVER!

That scene was pretty cute, though I can personally testify that being around or using computers all the time does not make your body immune to static shock. In fact I get them a lot more than usual so I often have to make sure my body is grounded before using touching any computer component.

Hey hey, we work really hard to be able to understand Japanese (in many of our cases, we get some of it, but not all of it - that's certainly me). The learn-Japanese club is always open to new members though.

I'm exuberant if I can catch 1/3 to half the words in an episode -- even if I replay it. Often, they're using slang or such casual speech that I'm trying to figure out who the hell they said did just what then where....

I do better with written material and surrounding myself with dictionaries ala Nodoka power (though I score zero on the 'moe' meter :P).

sorry for speaking offtopic. i havent watched ep 11. can't seem to find it. not that it bothers me. im sure a recording ll come up.
i'd love to understand more japanese. i mostly study alone using a textbook. it is very inefficient with nobody around to correct my mistakes. what is worse is that i can only find some time for japanese during vacations and it is a pretty thing as you can see.

In no particular order:

Hm... Tsukasa's starting to rebel? (At least internally.)

Sebastian (= Minoru?) stinks?

Minoru calls Kagami by her given name, without honorifics?

Poor Nanako.

I've liked every Lucky Channel this far, but this one seemed pretty weak.

I really like the relationship between Konata and her dad.

When I first started out, I learned from a few internet sources and a couple textbooks (I'm very fond of Gene Nishi's Japanese Step by Step for independent study). Mistakes are bound to be made... I recommend asking for help in the Learning Japanese thread (and to post there if you want to continue the convo... I need to check that thread more often). No worries; everyone's friendly.

Oh god...this episode rocks.

Short comments:
- Hey...I've missed stops before!
- Isn't there a term for those people who get on a train just to sleep in there?
- Wow...the girls have an insult battle royale this episode.
- What was the wordplay on "inbound" and "outbound" trains and people?
- Poor Konata...she gets burned pretty much the whole episode.
- Tsukasa is waaaaaay smarter and uhh...less nice than she lets on.
"Sebastian...like...stinks!" "You're grouping us together?!"
- Wow...the Hiiragis are really religious. I can find loads of those people around me...
- Poor Nanako...I have a feeling I'll end up like her. Pity...she's actually quite pretty to look at. But all 4 girls with the Christmas cake analogy was just painful.
- ^^^ Did Konata figure that out when she logged on the game?
- Ah! Ah! No! Yes.
- STRONGER!!!!

- Did Sebastian Shirashi imply that the minor characters will appear next ep?

- Doraemon alone makes this 10.
