Just grabbed the first novel in English and lovin' it... very unusual and totally a different flavor than the Euro-American young adult stuff I'm used to. Here's to hoping to more light novel franchises will get official translations.

I know you're not American (unless there's an Edinburgh in the U.S.), but is that official enough for you?

Well... in all fairness, Hammer did say "franchises"

New word coined.... "faceplam".....

edit: to the humorless person who commented on this post via rep --- here's a learning moment. Where do you think "pwned" came from? It was a typo that became a slang word. Where do you think "gar" came from? Again, a typo that became a meme. I was complimenting the person on creating a new net-word. Meh.

How does one faceplam? I first imagined it as facepalming but with a comically large plank of wood or something equally as oversized (a novelty-size giant baguette?) in place of a palm, but that can't be right. Is it just facepalming for the spelling-impaired?

The large plank smack is sort of what I envisioned... "plam" has a nice onomatopoeic ring to it.


on topic: I finished the first novel in english a few days ago.... it had me running back to my japanese copy occasionally when something sounded odd. In most cases, though, they were trying to work with a sentence that just didn't translate easily so I cut the translators a break. Hopefully we'll get the rest of the series (lately some of our anime/manga publishers have been fairly unreliable :P )

If so, I hope it's a nice kind like orange Jello or an overflavoured slushie, instead of...uh, the unpleasant kind from Eva. :/


Oh man, all this talk so, like two posts, then about Eva makes me remember watching the series in grade four or five, because it was the only anime series that the local Blockbuster carried and I had heard it was good. I hope that watching End of Evangelion at an age where a good percentage of my class was illiterate couldn't be considered a negative or scarring experience in any way.

Has this ever been used without saying "So. Many. Uses"? Is it like a required thing? Am I going to keep asking questions to use up the quota of question marks for this thread, to compensate for the ones lost in the Second Season thread? (No. No I am not, because the sight of that many question marks again would make me suicidal.)
