Y'know, I was thinking about that at the time - I don't like the idea of Minami being an Eagle either. Really more like an elephant to me, sort of majestic, kind of shy. On the other hand, I think that really reflected more Yutaka's perception of Minami than Minami herself. Each of Kagami's observations showed insight into the person (except Miyuki, but that was obviously the gag), but Minami's showed insight into herself.

I disagree with you all.

She isn't prideful or dominating. A bit aloof, maybe. She's really more shy than anything.

Also, do the Japanese see the eagle as westerners do?

I believe so, as Oscar Von Reuental from Legend of Galactic Heroes(a quite influential work), one of the most prideful characters out there, is constantly described as a black eagle.

That being said, I agree that eagle is more of a reflection of Yutaka's perception of Minami than Minami herself, and Yutaka, as innocent/naive as she is, just wanted to pick something "cool" for the best friend she looks up to.


Also agree w/ many of you that out of the new cast Misao is outstandingly adorable (in fact I've liked her since her first appearance), the hairstyle, the attitude, the fang, the voice! and the situational 3 seconds rule, wish to see her more

^ Usually Sunday, no?


Wait a minute, I thought I posted my thoughts on this ep? I guess I forgot to click the post button. >_>

Episode was great. I'm too lazy to retype everything though lol, but Kagami stare was the best.

But is Hiyori really a Fujoshi? I thought that term only applied to the yaoi fangirl aka Patty. Hiyori seems to be into shoujo-ai (imagining her friends in that relationship), but she's very familiar with shounen-ai lingo. Are the books in her shelf lean more into either side, I wonder...

Speaking of which, they should show Kona, Hiyori, and Patty going to comiket and highlight the differences on what they shop, lol.

Good thing about Guerrand subs is that if the character's faces are on the very bottom, they have the courtesy of actually putting the subs up top. That's what bothered me in every fansub group lol.


In terms of AFK dropping the subs, it may be put in hiatus for all we know. I mean, I'm a big fan of animal yokocho which is seemingly dropped, but I know it still gets episodes here and there. So LS might be on the same boat. After all, IIRC AFK is basically a one man group (one person does the three T's and the two E's but they have some people here and there for QC and distro). It's tough enough to do that for one series as a multi-person fansub group, but two series being done by one person? I think AFK is just more interested in SZS right now, so if anything LS is on hiatus.

Then again it may really be dropped, like some series of AFK's before it. Maybe Bayoab can give us some insight, though it looks like he hasn't been in this part of the boards as of late.

It's kind of Ironic, but this is actually one of the few things with the Guerrand subs that annoy me.

I understand why they did it and a applaud them for the initiative. But, for me, it doesn't work.
It might be that I lack an ability that most people have, but when the subs are placed that far away from the "action" I find it difficult to see whats happening on the screen.
As a result I had to pause and rewind a couple of times in ep 18, and ignore the subs the second time I watched the scene, just to see what actually happened.

This isn't that big of a deal and considering the overall quality of the subs, especially for a speed sub, I'm more than happy with their work.


As there's no real point in me regurgitating what people have already said. I will abstain from giving my view on ep 18, even though this is the ep 18 discussion forum.

I'm not certain but I know that Samurais keep Hawks (I don't think there are bald-headed eagle in Japan) as hunting pets. I don't know if there are noble attributes to them; it's probably something worthy looking into.

I think that's more because the entire LGH saga is modeled after the German culture, and Germans, like other western civilization, get their idea of the proud Eagle from the Romans. Every Roman Army Standard has the Eagle on top (which Hitler copied).

Her Fujoshi status was confirmed when she countered "seme" with "uke". She's into way more than BL... There are Yaoi doujin hidden in her secret hiding place I'm sure. She probably was at COMIKET 88 like Kona, but she was there during Yaoi day wearing a mask.

I really wish there are more Misao and the BL first graders in future episodes.. their adventures are way more interesting....

The first airing is in Chiba Sunday night at midnight, Japan time (as I see AVPlaya has already said). That's 11am Sunday in the eastern US.

Actually Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is the same thing as Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder, which is the newer revised term. Hyperactivity appears associated with attention deficit to varying degrees. But rather than Attention Deficit, it's better to call it an Attention INHIBITION Disorder.

It's like having a radio with a screwy tuner. Sometimes, you're barely tuning into a station and broadcasts from different frequencies overlap with what you're listening to. Other times, it's spot on and you receive the signal crystal-clear.

And while Konata seem a good candidate for ADHD, MIYUKI is probably the one that fits it the most. From her habit of hyperfocusing when reading, to losing track of things whenever her attention is occupied by something else, she fits the bill. It's obviously inherited, so she's probably like that ever since she was young.

While forgetting things in the microwave rarely happens (it did happen) to me because of the signal when it stops, I've left the stove on more than a few times and cause more than one fire.

Leopards are slender and graceful creatures who likes solitude... Yui-nee-chan ain't graceful, and she sure as hell doesn't like being alone.
Minami doesn't fit any kind of a predator. She's more like a reindeer to me. A bit skittish, but has physical power.

Tigers are just as much a loner as leopards are. Yui seems more like a seal to me. Get depressed without her mate and likes lying around basking in the shore.

Those animal are simple anime steorotypes that not relate to the actual caracter personality. See Konata logic for Miyuki. Yutaka just thinks her girlfriend is cool and mysterious thats why the eagle.

The general thread carry on this but....who is Taniguchi writing to? He is making a huge speech and the BAM cellphone cellphone and Akira-sama yells at him, jaja so funny.

Ahh this romance is pretty cute. Surely Shiraishi and Fukuhara are dating on real life. And they seem to be since episode 15, someone mencion that Tsukasa found Shiraishi atracctive at the concert.

I personally dont think Tayuri is gay, she si more like "Arrgh, I cant think this of my friends"

I know AVPlaya asked to end the subject here, but this is just a quickie:

Quote:
Again, that depends on how you interpret the term. Professional translators of fictional texts will avoid leaving terms untranslated. They will not replace untranslatable terms by completely different terms of similar cultural status however.
Yes, they will, depending on the source text, the target language and the target readership. The way you approach a translation depends a lot on the context of the translation itself. And professional translators aren't people that always translate when possible or that have a single approach to a given subject--they are those who understand when it's okay to do so and when it is completely unnecessary and even hurtful for the final product.

(BTW, I'm studying English translation myself, so I have some idea of what I'm talking about )

This is actually what I thought as well. My wife frequently sticks things in the microwave and wanders off to do something, forgetting it for several hours. Just as bad, she will frequently walk off in the middle of preparing dinner "for a few minutes" and not come back until hours later, during which time I finished whatever she was cooking and turned off everything.

And don't even get me started on how often I have to check the kitchen, just to make sure she hasn't left a burner or the oven on.

Anyway, to sum up, Miyuki seems more like she's actually suffering from ADD.

eyup.... as I suspected in ep 17 thread.... there was a prank in progress about the licensing. I don't mind the pranks. I'm more annoyed by the response to them --> as the "omigod is that true? Aiee!!" waves of people who seem to believe anything they read because someone said it on the net.... Remember, when someone claims something that seems amazing or scary, always ask for the cite or reference and verify it. Note: verification does not mean asking other random people....

The magic of the internet, someone makes something up and it spins way out of control until people start believing that it's true. Now if someone watched both subs and could compare them for us that would be neato~

Nice episode, but very visibly animated by either a B-team, or under serious time constraints. Worst animated episode of the series for me - which is still a darn high standard.

When I still wore glasses, I pushed them up with my middle finger all the time, as do many. It's just easier, since it's the longest one.

Don't be surprised, though, if you ever see people in several Asian countries pointing with that finger.
