Welcome to the first Nihongogogo Japanese giveaway!
Self study is a great way to learn Japanese but it can be a big challenge sometimes. We all benefit if we share ideas and resources and create supportive learning environment. SO… in the spirit of encouraging people to share ideas to make learning fun and keep yourself motivated when you’re studying alone I thought I’d host this giveaway.
It’s a simple question, but sometimes a tough one to answer, especially when it comes to overcoming dips in motivation or drilling grammar.
I’m looking for suggestions that are creative, original, inventive and that work well for people who are studying by themselves without a class or teacher. Your idea can be a general learning technique, a resource you’ve designed, description of a game you’ve made up, a new way to use an existing resource like a set of flashcards. You can also submit links original videos, audio files or images you’ve created. You can check out the competition and see other peoples’ entries on the Past submissions page here.
I’ll read all submissions and publish the best on Nihongogogo, so even if you don’t win your idea might get promoted.

Why is Jack Skellington like this hero of emo culture he is basically the peppiest Motherfucker to ever exist.
For anyone who wants to know, this clip is from Episode 1 of Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil, an ongoing anime series that “takes place in Tokyo in 2018, where normal humans and those who can use magic coexist. As a result, there are laws against using magic, and a “magic courtroom” exists to preside over lawsuits regarding magic use. In these cases, “Benmashi” or wizard barristers defend those who use magic. The anime follows Cecil, the youngest Benmashi in history, and her associates as they defend clients in these cases.”
the description makes this sound like “early shadowrun: the anime” and that sounds cool as hell need to check this out
Dance, magic dance…
I had to look at it, so you do too.

glitter-glow-sparkle asked: Do you believe that Hufflepuffs can tolerate a lot of crap (excuse me) and usually bottle it up until one little thing finally makes them crack? Me and my other friend (whose a Puff) are both like this and are curious if that's a normal trait. -XOXO fellow badger
Absolutely. I tend to be the same way. I rarely get frustrated or stressed, but when I do it’s because suddenly everything seems stressful at once. What do you think badgers?
Badgers will walk away from an issue, and if things continue to pile up, they will strike out and RIP OUT THE THREAT WITH A VENGENCE… but until then, they’ll try to keep their stresses and irritations to themselves until something just drives them over the edge. And usually they’ll try to make it back up, or will try not to let it ever effect them in the same way again.
I want to have Edna’s confidence
The thing is, she needs to be confident. She needs to be THE BEST so that the tragedies of her past don’t happen again. Why “No capes!”? She made those outfits. Her outfits are the reason that competent heroes died. She needs to be better than she was, better than she is, so she sets those standards for herself.
excuse u who gave you permission to give me emotions over edna mode
I never look back, darling, it distracts from the now.
yourbestginge asked: Fun fact re: fight or flight response: There's a new theory which suggests that some people, instead of having the traditional fight or flight" response have what's known as a "tend and befriend" response, wherein instead of fighting or running from a threat, they try to circumvent the threat by "befriending" it (mollifying the threat via non-violent means) and/or focus on protecting those around them. I feel like Hufflepuffs are the most likely to exhibit the tend and befriend personality type
Interesting! I would definitely agree with tying Hufflepuffs to that theory.
