When it comes to weird comic panels, the top one of this, with a blue man with a red bandana pulled over his eyes holding a cup of instant noodles standing in front of some strange man-lady holding a giant pink dildo with a picture of windows XP home edition in the background is probably up there.... right behind most of the punchline panels of Fred Bassett.
Well, I said that because I thought y'all would say or think it's "kawaii", because I hear many people say that word in front of something cute, especially when it's Japanese or is in the style of Japanese. Also, I thought it was like most people replacing "good" with "cool", "great" with "awesome", "bad" or "stupid" with "gay", "you're a loser" with "you got owned" or "you got pwned" and other things like them.
No. I don't say things like that, and I don't mean to offend you or anything, but I have Asian friends who absolutely hate it when white people use Japanese words to represent things. Just like how I have black friends who hate it when white people act black.
I've grown to hate it over time too. Especially people who do this.
I guess you have a French friend who hate it when people say Bon Appétit as well.
Nah, there is a point where you can go overboard, though you have to remember English basically steals words from other languages so calling something kawaii or chibi doesn't really hurt until you say something like "supa kawii desu" (which you know half these people pronounce as su-pa ka-wy dess-oo) since desu has no meaning in english it's an utterly pointless word.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
