  1. I like gift cards because if I get money it gets mixed with my regular money and I end up buying normal stuff with it rather than a gift. Unless it's a decent sum of money and I'm saving towards something, then money is better.
  2. They're kinda creepy lol. I went to the maid/butler cafe at a con once with a friend. We played jenga :b My friend lost one and had to be 'punished' (literally just her learning a dance), then the butler lost and had to sing us a song or something. It was fun but yeah, it was a really weird vibe in there :b
  3. I have an HTC One M8 (maaaaaaaaaayte)
  4. I'm a Gameplay Programmer. My work specialises in sports titles for console and PC. I try to find time outside hours to work on personal stuff but it's hard :b
  5. Fairy Tale is the only one I've made progress with so I'll go with that.
  6. Short because I actually stand a chance at finishing it
  7. Yeah I remember Ladydevimon hitting her and was like, "Oh sorry blondie," in a posh accent.
  8. Nichijou is on a whole other level so that
  9. Thanks for the welcomes. @Optic - I think an employment VISA would be better given I want to have a proper job there rather than just paying for a holiday. Idk, still considering stuff. I do wanna do the JET Program at some point.
  10. I have a heart condition so if I can avoid drinking them I will. I only ever had them to pull all-nighters for assignments (usually Mother).

    Job Seeking

    I've actually been reading a bit into this and it's not exactly true. If you don't meet all the criteria you can still be considered by writing an especially good cover letter and perhaps even a phone call (find out that hiring manager's name!) There's actually a thing where men will often apply for a job even if they only meet 60% of the selection criteria. Women, on the other hand, will often not apply unless they meet 100%. A bunch of sources suggest this may contribute to few women being in fewer senior positions than men. But I digress. Most importantly though is that people often forget that people doing the hiring are, well, people! Sometimes just being nice and having a good attitude will be all your need; even if you don't meet the criteria for the job you applied for, they may still create a position for you if they like you enough. Also little HR secret, at least 70% of jobs aren't advertised. Most come through networking, so go out and meet people who do the things you wanna do.
  12. JB is the only place I can think of but I can never afford them, especially when half (sometimes a third of) a season is twice the price of a full season American show (with about 3x the episodes in the full season).
  13. I finished at the end of 2014. I completed a double bachelor degree in: Multimedia: majoring in Games and Interactivity Science: majoring in Computer Science and Software Engineering I took it so I could eventually get into game development, which I'm doing now. It'll be my 1yr anniversary at my workplace this week, actually :3
  14. Favourite Anime is probably Attack on Titan or Cardcaptor Sakura I have too many favourite games: Zelda Mario Pokemon Smash Bros Animal Crossing Banjo-Kazooie Conker Zero Escape Ace Attorney The World Ends With You Portal
  15. I've had a NES for as long as I can remember (pretty sure my brother plopped the controller in front of me so he had someone to play SMB with, lol). That was my first Japanese thing, though I don't think I knew it at the time. Eventually I encountered Sailor Moon. Liked it but could never wake up early enough to watch it. At some point I started watching Cheez TV before school which had Digimon, Pokemon and Cardcaptor Sakura, all of which I enjoyed. My primary school also taught us Japanese though I don't remember anything from it except for the 'Big Bird Song' which my teacher would force us to sing at the beginning of each class for 4 years: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4al06d9TqX8 We got to watch the Pokemon movie during class at some point though so that was cool. Since I've just found myself watching more Anime and playing heaps of games that originated from there. So yeah...
  16. Steins;Gate and The Witness mainly.
  17. I'd like to start learning how to speak conversational Japanese. Is there anybody else here who has had some experience with this? Do you have any advice? Are you somebody who would also like to try some conversations? Reply here. :3
  18. So basically this thread is stating that the whole 'weebs are just socially inept hermits' stereotype is just a stereotype? Amazing. Probably worth noting that otakus in Anime are designed based on the perceptions of those people 'in Japan' where it is common to find both sides between, 'Woo, Anime is awesome' and 'Ew, Anime is for children.' Over here most people I've met are fine though it's hard to come across other fans in certain places. I have an easier time finding people with the same interests now because my University course and workplace had some crossover with people who were fans of Anime, plus I go to cons now as well. It was way harder to find people during high school, back then the only option was forums.
  19. Hey, I'm Queenie. I thought for sure I had an account here from forever ago because I've known Optic for years, but I guess not. I've been around the forumsphere for a while, usually under the name 'fantanoice.' If you've seen me before it was probably under that name. I'm a pretty big Japanese culture fan. I hope to go there and work or possibly study someday. I watch a bit of Anime but not as much as I would like. I do however play a lot of video games, many from Japan. So yeah, hope we become good mates soon. - Queenie
  20. Free! because it has Rin and very very very very very nice looking....... water.
  21. The 100% useless female character trope.
  22. Can we get Rin Matsuoka from Free!? I mean, what's a Husbando list without any of the Free! lads? B) (Or just add in all of them). Also Kurisu Makise would be cool because she's the best Steins;Gate and you already had one of the Steins;Gates in the list. .
