Otaku Penguin "Grape-kun" Passes Away

It comes with a heavy heart to report that "Grape-kun", the otaku Humboldt penguin that made headlines after showing affection to a cutout standee of Hululu from the anime series "Kemono Friends", has passed away. Grape-kun was 21 years old.

Reports of his passing came from a twitter post from the staff of the Tobu Zoo - the home of Grape-kun:
"Grape-kun the Humbodt penguin passed away yesterday. We would like to thank everyone for supporting him. And Hululu, thank you for watching over him to the very end. And Grape-kun, thank you for a long time together. Rest in peace in Heaven."

There were plans to throw a "Fall Grape Festival" on the November 11th & 25th that would allow visitors to celebrate Grape-kun and his love for Hululu. There has been no word from the Tobu Zoo staff as to if they any new plans for those dates. Two days prior to his passing, Grape-kun and Hululu were removed from the penguin pen after his zookeepers found him to be in poor health.
 
The story of Grape-kun gained international attention after he displayed signs of love and affection towards the Kemono Friends character standee of Hululu. The cutout standee was on display at the Tobu Zoo as part of a collaboration event with the Kemono Friends anime series that was airing at that time where various animal pens had a cutout standee on display representing that animal. The Kemono Friends event happened during April 2017.

Hululu's cutout became a permanent fixture of Grape-kun's penguin pen at the Tobu Zoo after fans, as well as Hululu's seiyuu (pictured above), expressed their love Grape-kun's cute displays of affection. During a typhoon, the pair was separated briefly but during his final moments, the Tobu Zoo staff reassured fans that they were together till the end.
Since then, fans have been sharing their condolences & thanking Grape-kun for giving them happy memories which also comes with a flood of fanart:

Rest in Peace, Grape-kun! T_T

Gameplay de GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match é revelado durante live-stream

GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match é um título anunciado pela Bandai-Namco em Julho deste ano para a plataforma PlayStation 4, com data de lançamento estimada para o inverno japonês. Não é o primeiro jogo da franquia. No ano de 2014 o PS Vita recebeu GIRLS und PANZER: Sensha-do Kiwamemasu!, que por sinal não foi muito popular no ocidente desde que foi lançado apenas em solo japonês com suporte ao idioma local. Enquanto o primeiro título aborda a história do anime de mesmo nome, o pouco que se sabe até o momento é que o modo história de Dream Tank Match tem como base o filme GIRLS und PANZER der Film, e por isso pode-se dizer que se trata de uma continuação. Desta vez o jogo contará com uma versão específica para a região da Ásia (tanto em formato digital quanto físico) com legendas em Inglês, o que se acredita ser a forma com que o desenvolvedor avaliará a recepção do jogo no ocidente.
 
 
Há cerca de uma semana foi anunciada uma sessão live-stream marcada para o dia de hoje, a qual foi transmitida entre as 08:00 e 09:00 da noite (Japan Standard Time).

Dentre o que foi apresentado, tivemos a oportunidade de assistir a 17 minutos de gameplay em tempo real.

Tokimeki Idol Smartphone Game Announced


 
It has been announced by Konami Digital Entertainment on Friday that they will be releasing a new smartphone game titled "Tokimeki Idol". This game is a spin-off to the Tokimeki Memorial visual dating sim series which was also developed by Konami that started out back in 1994 and has not been seen since back in 2014. Konami opened a new teaser website with a video giving fans a closer look at the game.
 
 
Tokimeki Idol is a idol communication game where you'll be living with the games 15 female idols whom are part of a music institute to help them achieve their goal & dreams.

The game will be a free-2-play game for iOS & Android mobile devices which will come with microtransaction purchases. The game will also sport a "VR" mode for compatible devices for smartphones & tablets.



 
This new development for the TokiMemo series is built on the concept of gaining a “Tokimeki” (Heartbeat Memorial) from spending your everyday with the girls who are aiming to become idols.
Tokimeki Idol marks the return of Konami's Tokimeki Memorial romance sim series. From its initial release back in 1994, Tokimeki Memorial has spawned many  game sequels, spin-offs, & adaptations from its original video anime back in 1999 & 2009, a 2006 anime TV series (Tokimeki Memorial ~Only Love~) which was based on the Tokimeki Memorial online game which was also released in that same year, & many more from drama CDs & soundtracks. No game within the Tokimeki Memorial series has ever been officially translated for the western market although it is argued that Brooktown High, another one of Konami's games released for the Playstation Portable back in 2007, was heavily inspired by Tokimeki Memorial and was considered Konami's way of bringing the series over to the western market......not in the way fans would have wanted though as the game was heavily panned as a horrible game.
 
Reporter Rant: Okay seriously......this game is looking too much like The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage. Honestly, I think I can let one out now......FUCK KONAMI for ruining yet another favorite franchise by making it a mobile monetization smartphone game!! #FUCKKONAMI

  8. This time I pick a translated song lyrics and try to understand the meaning of words and grammar.

The meaning of this word is very fushigi to me. なまえをつける - assignar/atribuir nome - verbo "nomear" (assign a name - verb "to name") 想いが重なるまで待てずに Until feelings pile up, without wait Até os sentimentos acumularem, sem esperar I'm unable to wait until the feelings pile up おもい - sentimento (feeling) かさなる - acumular (to accumulate) まで - ponto de chegada - até (reaching point - until) まてず - não pode esperar (can't wait) 悔しいけど好きって純情 Though frustrating, to love is a pure feeling Embora frustrante, amar é um sentimento puro It's frustrating, but love is pure like that くやしい - humilhante, decepcionante, frustrante (humiliating, disappointing, frustrating) けど - embora (though) すきって - amar, gostar, preferência por, gosto por (to love, to like, preference for) じゅんじょう - mente pura, inocência, sentimento puro (pure mind, innocence, pure feeling) A friend told me that すきって is the nominalization of the verb "to like/to love" (好き). 微熱の中 ためらってもダメだね Em meio a essa febre suave, hesitar é proibido, né?

  9. Last "greeting" phrase of Carisa as a merchant: "いらっしゃいませ!買わないんだったらさっさと帰ってくださいね。" いらっしゃい (imperative of いらっしゃる) - to come; to go; to be + ませ (polite form) = inviting someone to enter your shot or to visit it again; welcome かわない (negative present indicative of 買う) - to buy, to purchase だったら (plain form of verb to be, "だ") + ~ったら - suggest something is さっさと - quickly かえて (TE form of 帰る) - to return, to come home, to go home, to go back; to leave + ください (attached to a verb) = leave, please ね - this one is complicated Literal: Please, enter! (いらっしゃいませ)! If you are not buying (かわない + だったら) , quickly (さっさと) please go back (かえてください), okay (ね)? Non-literal: Welcome (いらっしゃいませ)! In case you can't afford anything (かわない + だったら), please come back again (かえてください) soon (さっさと), okay (ね)? She is asking the customer to return to her shop again if he does not have money to buy something now. This is the polite way to say, but is Carisa so lovely with customers? Option two: Welcome いらっしゃいませ! If you are not buying anything (かわない + だったら), please just go back to wherever you came from (かえてください), okay (ね)? She says that when the customer is visiting the shop not to buy, but to admire her beauty. Carisa wants money, not attention, so she asks the customer to leave. It depends on who she is dealing with. Kurt already has two girls to choose a route, so it's very unlikely he is harassing Carisa. Option 1 is my bet! Let's see... Yay! No divergences this time. Very similar to my first sentence - just a different way to translate it. The only detail that is still not clear to me is the "ね" (ne), since it is not present in the translated phrase. Anyway, it's enough.
  10. Bandai-Namco announced that will release GIRLS und PANZER: Dream Tank Match for PS4 in Asia region with English subtitles. That is, the game will be available in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Maylasia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia) in both digital and physical format during Japanese Winter in 2017. Therefore, in case the game is not released in the West, there is an option for who wants to play in English. From this news has been created a rumor that the game will be launched in the West. Note that English subtitles do not mean that the game will reach America or Europe, but rather that the developer chose English instead of localizing the game in each Asian country in their respective language. This news is about covering other countries outside Japan while not leaving Asia.
  11. Today I bring another "greeting" phrase of Carisa: "ようこそ!冷やかしだったら痛い目みますよ。" ようこそ - welcome, nice to see you 冷やかし (ひやかし) - joke; visiting a shop asking the prices and leaving with empty hands だったら (verb + ~たら; in this case, I believe it is the plain form of です, "だ") - verb to be (is) + auxiliar ~tara that means "suggest something" http://www.learn-japanese-adventure.com/japanese-conditional-form-tara.html 痛い (いたい) - painful, sore; difficult, insupportable 目 (め) - eye みます (present indicative polite form of verb みる) - to look よ - "at the end of a sentence to state a strong conviction / At the end of a sentence to articulate a request or suggestion". Honestly, I did not fully understand the use of "yo", but in Snow Halation 見せるよ(miseru yo) means "I will show" or "We will show". Also "namae wo tsukeyou ka" ("Shall I assign a name?"). It is something related to the speaker or whom it speaks to. After thinking a bit I think it means (literally): "Welcome! If I were you, my eyes would be tired of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." "Welcome! If I were you, would be a pain to my eyes of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." "Welcome! I see your sore eyes of looking at the goods without being able to buy anything." I'm not sure of which is correct, if one of them is, but I am more inclined to the first two options due the presence of "dattara" (suggest to be). How the translation team dealt with this sentence: "Bem-vindo de volta. Sou uma visão para olhos cansados?" (Sou algo agradável de se ver?) ようこそ = welcome back, okay The rest is a bit... weird. How I think they translated this sentence taking in account the definition of each word: 冷やかし - one of the meanings of hiyakashi is joke. It is not present in the translated phrase but indicates that what she is saying is a joke(?) いたい + 目 - sore eyes みます + よ - in this case I suppose it does not mean that she (the speaker) will do something ("I will look"), but that she is something to look at, a "sight". Who looks, looks at something or a direction. だったら - verb to be + suggestion; present in the sentence as "am I...?" My translation: Welcome (ようこそ)! Looking at goods without buying (ひやかし) must be (だったら) a pain for your eyes (痛い目), I see (みますよ). Theirs: Welcome back (ようこそ)! What I'm going to say now is a joke (冷やかし): Am I (だったら) for sore eyes (痛い目) a sight (みますよ)? She is a seller, so I can't discard the definition "browse a shop and not buy" for 冷やかし because it is related to the context, but maybe "joke" is also valid. Which do you think is correct? EDIT (07/08): Luiz Rafael from Programa Japonês Online channel explained it to me through a video. Translating to English: Welcome! (ようこそ) If you are only to look (冷やかし+だったら), you're in trouble (痛い目みます), okay (よ)? 痛い = sore 目 = eye みます = to look But... together they mean "be in trouble". Idiomatic expression.
  12. Let's get started! One of the phrases we usually hear from this adorable young lady is: "毎度どうもです。神様はお客様じゃなくてお金様ですよね!" Fortunately I know a very useful resource that not only translate texts, but also tells the reading, base of conjugation (for verbs), the class (if it is a verb, substantive, particle etc) and more. http://nihongo.j-talk.com/ Awesome, is not it? Returning to the phrase, I will add some spaces to understand it better: "毎度 どうも です![...]" 毎度(まいど/maido) - each time, always どうも - thanks/hello (it has a lot of meanings) です - polite present form of verb "to be" I will consider as "Thank you!". "神様はお客様じゃなくてお金様ですよね!" 神様 (かみさま)- "Kamisama"; this one is easy, because you probably heard a lot of it while watching anime, right? It means "God" は - particle "wa"; it is written like "na" but is pronounced "wa". Everything that is placed after this particle in the sentence is related to the word that is before. Until now, literally I have "Talking about god" or "Related to god"... お客様 - guest, visitor, customer じゃなくて - this one is complicated. It is easier to understand by the use than theory http://www.tanoshiijapanese.com/dictionary/entry_details.cfm?entry_id=103243&element_id=128958&conjugation_type_id=74 お金 (おかね) - money + さま - polite form to refer to a person (usually). It is weird because money is not a person, but I am not surprised with it since Carisa really likes money! お金さま - okane-sama (Mr. Money ó.o) です (to be) + よね - of course it is The literal translation I can think of would be: "Thank you! God is a customer with money, of course it is." Very strange, is not it? Let's see how the translation team dealt with this sentence: I believe this translation is incorrect because there is a dot separating です and 神様. Now that I think about , the phrase "God is a patron, a source of money" maybe was originated from it, because a "customer with money" or "paying customer" is also a patron (a recurrent/regular customer), a source of something Carisa is so obsessed with: money-sama!
