I dunno. Subtitles would at least draw my eye away from the awkwardness.
Jet Bin Fever
This is very depressing if you understand the Japanese. Very very depressing. The things he says and does are just... terrible.
Jet Bin Fever
I typed that out even before I got to the para para section. FUCK.

Cena_mark
Do you understand Japanese? If you do you're just as bad.

SteamPoweredKleenex
All people who can speak Japanese and English are anime freaks, now?

Cena_mark
All the ones I know are.

Jericho
You have girlfriend?
No
What no girlfriend?!?

Aelric
Cena, you forget you live in a tiny little bubble in Alaska. I know a bit of Japanese from Samurai movies, history lessons and from some of the Japanese transfer students I met in College and others I taught in Korea. You'd be surprised, it's a whole big culture, just like ours, not totally centered on animation and plenty of interesting things about it worth learning the language for.

orificespace
Cena. Devoting 2-3k hours of your life to mastering a language is just as bad as being a do nothing content sponge?

Jet Bin Fever
haha, I worked in Japan for about 6-8months, so yes I know Japanese. Bite me.

Cena_mark
Aleric you act like I'm Sarah Palin or something. I haven't even been here a year yet. I lived in the cultural Mecca of the south before I enlisted.
I've been to Japan. I know there's more to it than anime. Its just that most people you'll find in a Japanese class in the U.S.A. are of the otaku variety.
Orificespace: I'm not a do nothing sponge. I do awesome things with my spare time.
Jet: Don't tell me you don't like anime.

Jet Bin Fever
I liked anime when I was a kid, because I liked cartoons. I don't think I've seen more than 2 or so episodes of anything since college for sure. Though like I told you in another post, I make an exception for Ghibli and series I'm still nostalgic over from my childhood like Lupin and the original Gundams.

Cena_mark
Well of course. I make an exception for Studio Ghibli as well. Mimi wo Sumaseba remains one of my all time favorite films.

Caminante Nocturno
I'll bet you two contemplated suicide when Inu Yasha ended.

Cena_mark
I never watched that crap. I just said I like Ghibli films. Ghibli films aren't even anime, because they actually have quality.

Caminante Nocturno
How much Applejack/Sango fanfiction is on your hard drive, Cena?

Jet Bin Fever
I have no idea what that even means Cam!

Cena_mark
I don't watch Inu Yasha. And I'm not protesting too much. I just don't. I know what you're trying to do here, but it won't work.

Caminante Nocturno
You mean it won't work AGAIN?

Cena_mark
I mean this time you're trying to hard in the case of me and MLP I was all about bashing bronies. All this time I've said nothing about Inu Yasha and now you're suddenly accusing me of being a fan. Now this is a response to me and my statements against weeaboos. Don't get me wrong I am not a weeaboo either.

Rodents of Unusual Size
When I worked in a video store, a few people asked for InuYasha. They were all completely irritating.

Nikon
I guess David-kun can't pick up on sarcasm, contempt, etc.
BiggerJ
It's not his native language, of COURSE he can't.

Riskbreaker
Autism does that to you, autistics can't read body language properly, sarcasm among other things.

Dirty Sanchez
I wonder how he got there. He's a dancing puppet for them.

SteamPoweredKleenex
@Sanchez: I bet it went something like this:

"Would you like to go to Japan?"

[Sound of gleeful squeals, possibly an orgasm, followed by what sounds like a water balloon full of Jell-O popping.]

"So is that a yes?"

Rodents of Unusual Size
30 seconds in and already this is super awkward. Wow. Oh...wow. This is buckets of sad.
Nikon

Japanese students also live here.

(Hard to hear because of loud BGM)

#1: This is nice. It's nice, isn't it?
#2: Hmm.

David walks out of the classroom.

David: Hello. It's the first time we meet.

#2: This fellow is Kike.

#1: Ah, it's here. How cute. What's on your shirt?

David: Evangelion. I love it.


#1: What's your name?

David: David.

#1: What country are you from?

David: America.

#1: From America. How old are you, David?

David: I'm 21.

#1: So you love Evangelion?

David: Yes, I love it. It's the anime I love the most.

#1: So you've been to Akiba (Akihabara) then?

David: I often go there.

#1: Wow, all the way to Tokyo,

#1: So you've been to Nihonbashi?
'
David: Every week.

#1: This guy's a textbook example of an otaku.
Jet Bin Fever
I love how he constantly uses "daisuki" for everything. It's very awkward.

Nikon
They complain about his not wearing slippers in the school, rightfully pointing out that he is going to ruin his tatami floor and that they're thankful he doesn't have a roommate.
I don't think I want to translate the whole thing, but the part where he explains how he affords getting all the maid merchandise because he has rich parents. They hold up the photo of his parents and impersonate their voices telling him that's not why they're paying for him to study in Japan - which they do much later on in the video also.

Some of the posters on his wall are from Lucky Star, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Shakugan no Shana, Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid), and Clannad,

I can't make any comment on his dance other than he needs to practice with that Hank Solo guy.

Nikon
One more for the road:

#1: David, your phone is amazing.
David: Thank you.
#1: That wasn't meant as a compliment.

Cena_mark
How many Japanese speaking dweebs are here on this site?

Caminante Nocturno
The only reason I'm fluent in French is so that I can watch Wakfu without any subtitles.

Jet Bin Fever
Nikon: That tatami thing really grossed me out too. My apato in Japan had tatami, and I was anal retentive about keeping it nice. I miss that floor more than almost anything from Japan.

Nikon
If you've got the money you can set up the tatami floor and go on to make a washitsu - just about everything you'd need can be ordered online now.

Jet Bin Fever
ahh someday, when I get permanent housing.. right now I move around too goddamn much.

BHWW
It's funny that so many American anime fans proudly label themselves 'otaku' even though in Glorious Nippon, Home of Wondorus Anime and Noble Katanas, otaku are basically (and rightfully) considered weird, smelly, socially-retarded creeps.

Hmm.
Caminante Nocturno
I wonder if there are people in non-English speaking countries who call themselves "manchild" without realizing what it means.

dead_cat
Oh god, i couldn't make it to the end. This is like staring at the sun, if the sun were made of awkwardness.
deadpan
It's like a glimpse into an alternate dimension where we lost the war.
Riskbreaker
Hah! Here are your stars sir.

Riskbreaker
I mean, here.
