Hi Perorist. Hope you are okay. I've been busy with my life concerns as usual. I'm about finished with Conversational Japanese class online.
Hello Peroristさん! I'm so sorry for my late response - I hope I didn't make you upset. │･ω･`)
Of course I do want to help you about the anime industry situation in Germany. It's not so easy to answer that question, because I know many people who buy DVDs and on the other hand a few who are streaming animes via sites - but I think that streaming websites are more in common for the younger generation. For instance, I do prefer to buy anime OST CDs instead of the digital version you can get on amazon etc (I know that many people just buy the digital versions).
We have a bunch of streaming websites where you can watch animes - for free (ad-supported, low resolution etc.) or pay tv on demand. This video shows some examples:
I don't know many SNS in Germany. Two German websites I know are Animexx or Anitalk. Also, it gives alot of facebook/discord groups. Then you have the chance to go to conventions and meet other anime&manga fans - that's the way how I meet other fans in Germany. Some poeple I met there are my friends now (=´∇｀=)
Vice versa: How is the anime industry in Japan? Do you have a strong SNS there?
btw, that site what you have posted is really exciting! https://r.gnavi.co.jp/nobu/en/ I wanna know more (^._.^)ﾉ☆
Best regards back from the Weser river ♥
Hey~ I haven't forget you. The last time is very busy and today I'm feeling very meh - I'll try to response later (｀･ω･)ﾉ☆･ﾟ::ﾟ
Guys! my friend' work, who create the story, is coming soon! You should watch it!
Does anyone watche the Kokkoku "刻刻"？ I like it.
It's been a while since I got to contact you!, I was reading a topic about japanese impressions on foreigners visiting their country, that many times foreigners don't respect the rules of the japanese, what do you think about foreigners?
I think that this song is the cutting edge of the religious dance movment of 13c Buddhism and 19c Ee ja nai ka movement. What do you think?
I got a choco from my favorite maid cafe, which is like a login bonus but unexpected, so I was glad. This is the Blackthunder which is the one of famous cheapest choco, called "DAGASHI", you may know through the anime as "DAGASHIKASI だがしかし". I ate soba and yakitori with the author of a coming new anime within 2018 and a famous zen Buddhism monk. We told about how we construct storys in an article or manga. It was a great dinner on the 14th Feb.
Thursday, January 25. snow, clear sky and cloudy
I got up after 12 o'clock. Today, I have to finish my month's work. This month, I wrote 10,000 charactors except coughing. So I did not do anything else. I have not handled books and animes that I want to read and watch. Before that, I must earn rent.
I heard the song of Nakagawa Shoko from a link on internet. I know little about her, but I like pretty much the band arrangement of the songs that she sings. Occult Academy opening was very good and "sky color days" is also pretty good. I have been writing short book reviews from around 2 pm to 1 am. It was like a language construction worker. Well I made two digits so my boss will not complain about my job in this month.
I was really tired. When a break took us outside in the evening, snow remained a little. It should be cold.
