An Easy Peasy Contest

 As I type this I just got in from work and am checking my E-mail and noting something unexpected.

Inquiries.

Some are just expressing curiosity and others are very deeply concerned about the reason that two of the recent posts included pictures of lamias. I thought this would be obvious to most of my readership.

So, to the first person to correctly guess from the context why there were pics of lamias in those two posts, I'll do one post on a topic of your choice.

Difficulty: Because I responded to one inquiry, you are disqualified from participating if your name ends in the suffix "duck".

Note: This picture is posted for reasons not directly related to the two others. It's here because I had to slog through a hell of a lot of Lamia pics to find a few worksafe ones (wtf!?) and because I just thought it was cute.

1 I assumed the answer was "Well, why the hell not?" Not everything has to have a reason.

3 If you go into Pixiv and enter "ラビア", you can find a number of worksafe ones. The raw search will throw up a lot of junk, so the usual trick is to add one to bookmarks first, and then follow bookmark suggestions.

5 Oh...Pick a topic.

6 How about what's your favourite manga and what you like about it. Thought about making you write a review of Monster Musume at first, but that seems a bit much.

7 I think you've got you anime memes mixed up.  It's supposed to be "attractive females versus tentacles", not "attractive females who are tentacles"...

Darn it.

9 Pete, I meant to ask you: When these Japanese seiyuu are singing that song in Russian, how terrible are their accents? Is it at least understandable?

Posted by: Steven Den Beste at Wed Jan 2 20:16:18 2013 (+rSRq)

10 It sounds understandable, but I'm not sure if this is because I know the lyrics. We used to sing Katyusha in kindergarten, and corrupted the words on purpose. For example, in our version Katyusha came to the sheer bluff as usual, but instead of "starting the song about the grey prarie eagle" she "threw/shot sousage with great precision". We imagined that teachers could not tell what we were doing, with all the loud music and other kids singing in perfect cacophony, but now I'm not so sure. Anyway, with a baggage like that I cannot be sure I truly understand what seiyuu are singing. When they insert English, I often cannot tell what they are saying, but it becomes obvious in retrospect.

AKB0048 used fully fluent Russian speakers when the crew visited Tundrastar, which was quite a surprise!

11 And let me say again how happy we all are that you ARE standing.
