If people tell you to run a tournament, decline. It’s a hell lot of work, especially when other people repeatedly make mistakes. Oh, and the players too. They can’t read. At all.

Neither can their freaking parents.

Which was okay (or rather, I didn’t know much about it) until I actually took over part of handling them. PR sucks.

Anyway, after spending 2-3 hours fixing up a spreadsheet for the next round as quickly as I could, since the original wrong spreadsheet was already posted for some reason, I went on KGS. What started as a discussion about a teaching game my friend was giving quickly turned into otaku talk.

I don’t really remember how it happened, but we somehow went from tesujis and weak shape to Lucky Star, Black Rock Shooter, Haruhi, and Kaiba shachou. Yeah. Some guy came in…and quickly left.

Isn’t it great how Go can help you make friends?

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
手筋(tesuji) – A skillful or clever play in Go. I guess you can use it out of context too, but I don’t know if many people will understand.

New Stuff

K-On!! anime to broadcast in April. Apparently the second season gets a name change — an extra “!”
Max Factory is coming out with an H-game. Here’s the thing — it’s free. Yep. Free.
It’ll be downloadable off of the website when it’s released at the end of March. Apparently there’s a version of it you can order for money that comes with a figure. The game is called se・きらら(se・kirara).

It looks very pretty. Although the characters don’t seem too interesting. But anyway, why do eroge always get good OPs? Will probably download to try it out when it comes out.

…Seems like I can only find these kind of games to learn Japanese…
Waiting on Black Rock Shooter as well. Whee.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
赤裸々(sekirara) – frankness or nakedness. Go figure.

Random Crap

Another Black Rock Shooter figure, this time the anime version. Which has not come out yet. So, so awesome.
Need to get back to my Japanese stuff, so enjoy the band edition of Don’t Say “Lazy” from K-On!

So much trap, I say. Piko and Tissue Hime are smexy.

I’m pretty sure they’re guys, anyway.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
姫(hime) – princess. ティッシュ姫(tissue hime) means “tissue princess”, and so goes his trademark of a box of tissues.
