Well, flipping my schedule hasn't worked so far so I'm working 3rd shift for a while at least. Iji is still going to be making his posts during the day though so you'll have to wait on him.

And you did alright little bro! Not amazing, but it could be so much worse.

It really shouldn't be that hard, I know the words I'm trying to use, and I know the English alphabet, but thinking about them in the same context will probably always feel wrong

OH DEAR LORD that one bothered me. I actually first watched TTGL before learning hardly any Japanese, and it was a totally different show when re-watching it. Yeah, there's an episode called ヒトっていったい何ですか? and there's a conversation between Nia and Shimon where they literally talk about the difference between 人 and 人間 to drive home the point to the audience that she's not 100% human and... the translators just dropped the ball.

Oh, uh, spoilers.

Human and person, I remember! Man I feel bad for Roxil because of this conversation though.

And, besides, listening to people yelling おめぇをぶっ殺してやるぁぁぁ and whtanot doesn't really teach you how to speak a language how people use it.

(for what it's worth, I'm far from fluent; all my knowledge comes from a year-long study abroad I did in Kyoto... people find my Kansai accent to be hilarious)

Little Iji is lying to you Spikey. Thanks you two, this might be the first time I laughed today. What is it he said first time you guys met? "Who is that girl and why is she crazy?" I'm sure he only hates you as much as he does me Very Happy BTW real translation: Because you're the worst. And from the post: Drink beer, it's good for you!

Oh man, poor little Iji. For those of you who don't know, legal drinking age at home is 20, but it's also almost completely ignored. Underage drinking and smoking is super common. My little Iji just recently turned 20 so even though he already drank (less surprising if you know he lives with someone that makes Sake for a living) it's still a little like crossing a barrier... well little bro, you're not in Kansas anymore... and by that I mean Fukuoka. He thought he was going to go to a bar one night and grab a drink ... hahaha! Funny.

Nah, I can understand what you're saying in English, and that will only get better with practice.

KAYTEE!! I love Kaytee ... she's not weird at all... by her standards. She grew up on a giant sentient space tree and is actually 6 (7) people in one body, we have to cut her a little slack. I'm with Sara, you can feel perfectly free to use one of mine as well but if you want to try to make a character of your own you should. I'm sure people here could help you come up with ideas. I also like Sara's idea of having you write in English and rather than having her translate, just get help correcting it. I know you're insecure about your English but that post was really pretty good and going through correcting it with someone will probably help you get better. Plus ... technology ... tells you when your spelling is wrong already and if you use Word it checks your grammar as well.

Lesson one Bro, your English being bad is not the same as you being bad Very Happy I think it would be good for you to try and do it on your own. If you write what you want to in English I can try to help walk you through correcting it before you post instead of fixing for you myself. I think that sounds fair? I would also say try to come up with a character yourself ... but that would be a bit hypocritical considering I stole Alexia from Spikey right? Kaytee is a really awesome character and I think her power level would fit in fine considering her moral standpoint on using her full power on 'lesser beings' but Spike's friend thought it would be funny to have Thalia/Unit 00 in the same setting. MY opinion is go maximum weird, however you want to do that is ultimately up to you but asking for opinion's is never bad. We'll see if anyone else has thoughts on this.
