Soul Catcher(S) Ch041

An interesting phenomenon in the Japanese language is the existence of wasei-eigo terms. Those are words that a Japanese person might assume are of English origin (and perhaps they were, at some point in the distant past), but to an English speaker they’re either nonsense, or have a completely different meaning than what is intended.

Some examples:
kuuraa – air conditioner
consento – power socket
furaido poteto – French fries
nooto pasokon – laptop
jaazhii – tracksuit
saidaa – soda
baikingu – all-you-can-eat buffet
manshon – apartment

Nothing to do with music, I know… Enjoy the new chapter.

Soul Catcher(S) Ch038

Chaba doesn’t like sports (in anime/manga), so he wasn’t too thrilled that SC is turning into a baseball manga. But it feels strangely timely to me (Cross Game… Watch it… it’s awesome…)

On the topic of music, I think we’ve had Hibike Euphonium going on. Anyone watching that one? They also had the useless/muda gold in there from what I remember.
