I wouldn't say wrong. I'd say he turns into the result of the perfect YouTube formula. I''m in no way saying i like or approve of it, but the statistics are clear.

if it works it works
good for him

but that thing on the camera ain't right

Its a disgusting monstrosity, but it's also the most successful thing on YouTube. he's basically planned out and understood exactly what will get him the most views and subs and the lot. Unfortunately 12 year olds with overactive ADHD who like screaming, false reactions and swearing happen to be the vast majority on the site, hes' taken full advantage of that.

Once again, i don't approve of it. but in a strange sense, i''m almost proud of him for his accomplishment.

Im not proud of him
Im happy for him and the reward hes reaping off of it

but I cant feel any kind of pride for that man

These are different than cupnoodles, the water is only there to heat the noodles. Unlike cupnoodles which are basically dehydrated, the noodles in these boxes don't absorb the water.

When I was in Japan I learned this first hand. Ended up with a lunch that was faaar too wet.
#39 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
so that's why they throw the water out and THEN add the spice pack
User avatar
#40 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
yep yep. Like a seasoning.
#41 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
....
is that what the pack's called?
seasoning?
thought it was called something else than "spicepack"
User avatar
#42 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
I think 'sachet' is the right term.
They come with 2-3 packets (or sachets), one with some kind of sauce/cream, one with veg or something, and the other with season/spice.

I loved them dearly. And they were sold for like, 30c a pack haha
#44 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
30c a pack?
that's a fucking steal!
#43 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
I got these Korean cupnoodles in Norway, called Mr. Lee.
the cups come with noodles in them, dried veggies on the noodles and a small sachet of seasoning
then there's these BIG Mr. Lee, which doesn't fit in a cup. there's the noodles, a sachet of dried veggies and some sorta meat and another sachet with seasoning.
the noodles are the dried kind, you just drink the water-ish substance when done eating. like you're drinking some sorta soup
User avatar
#45 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
Yeah man! One thing I loved about Japan, food and drink is suuuper cheap. Including alcohol.

Yeah I think I had a few of those while over there too! The good ole' ramen style noodles.
#75 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
just gonna reply here now. not too far away from our conversation and not a shiteload of purple lines on the left of the screen.

first time for everything. personally, I'm not an alcoholic. in fact, I hardly ever drink. went sober through my senior year in high school. the time when people would be partying, fucking and drinking and then some.

I once tried sake, but it was too dry for my taste. I sipped it and my mouth immediately got dry. then I read the bottle and it turned out that the sake was like -4 or -6, which is really dry (-10 being as dry as it can get and 10(+10) being sweetest)
I'm gonna try and find some sweet sake, just a small bottle, wouldn't want to bring too much and get heavily taxed at the airport in Norway. or bring too much and be unable to bring souvenirs and shit back with me
User avatar
#76 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
You're from Norway? I met a bunch of Norwegians while I was in Japan haha and Swedes. You lot like to travel!

Yeah sounds about right, i'm not a big drinker either. And I only smoke cigars on occasion. But while you're over there, let loose would recommend. It's a blast.

Yeah sake is definitely an acquired taste, for sure.
#77 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
to most people I count as one. to foreigners in Norway especially. just because I speak the language and have my...uhh...Germanic looks. tall, blonde (though going bald) and blue eyes

officially, I'm German. technically, I'm only half. the other half's Dutch.

quoting wikipedia here:
"Typical values are between -3 (sweet) and +10 (dry)"
I don't know whether I was wrong about the + and - or wikipedia was. I'm just gonna have to ask the folks at the brewery. I'm probably visiting the Hakatsuru brewery in Kobe.

ever tried pachinko? I've watched a few tutorials and read a few manuals. even went and tried finding a free online game (which sucked ass).
what are the chances of winning big time? I read using about 100 Yen isn't gonna win you anything for shit, but I wouldn't want to use too much coin on slotgames, as it were.

watch this:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3dffCWd-3E
1000 Yen goes in, display goes "10", press the button and small metal balls get into your container. so you have a bunch of balls, but what does the display then say? does it say "9", meaning you have 9 more containers of metal balls? the tutorials never explained that to me.
User avatar
#78 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
Hell, i'm English and have similar Germanic properties. You'll be popular in Japan haha.

Yeah i'm usually a fan of the sweeter stuff, but it does draw you into getting drunker faster.

I haven't, no. Some places I walked past were even up for 1 yen pachinko (you will likely collect a LOT of these, it's the only decent way to get rid of them lol) I reckon it'll be about the same odds as a slot machine.

Pachinko parlors are godawfully loud though!
#79 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
popular? how's that? simply by being white and tall?

currently trying to grow out my beard. trimming/shaving the sides of my face with only my moustache and a goatee left. needs to grow a little more and then I get to bind my beard together with a small rubber band. hope it looks badass.
as it's gonna be summer, I'll go for short hair. trimmed short. makes showering easier and means I don't have to worry about bad hair days.

is that still popular?

how loud are the parlors? should I bring something to block out the noise or is it something you'll get used to without going deaf?
User avatar
#80 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
Preeetty much, yeah! Especially with facial hair. That stuff would definitely stick out haha might get stopped for photos. It's unusual to see a Japanese guy with any sort of facial hair, so they love anythin different. I had a blast.

Oh very loud... i can't even describe it. I could hear them loudly through noise cancelling headphones, just biking by.
#81 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
thing is, I don't exactly have a really thick beard. but hey, as long as it's different, I'm good to go. might just have fun.

noise cancelling headphones? like the Bose ones?
if they can't stop the sound of pachinko machines, then shit, I don't know what will.
User avatar
#82 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
Exactly!

And yep, those are exactly the ones I had too. They are looooooud
#83 - trevanman (03/17/2016) [-]
my folks use them.

I just use those Sony in-ear earphones. sound is great, in-ear part of earphone's soft, unlike older earphones and they're not too expensive.
downside is the thread-thingy. there'll be kinks in it after a while. and when that happens it's not long before you'll have to buy a new pair. gotta do that before Japan. depends on whether the danger of them being broken is really high or not.

been wondering about something else: spitting in the streets. when I walk to my university and I have this really bad taste in my mouth, I tend to just spit it out. are you allowed to do that in Japan? since, you know, the country is pretty clean and all.
User avatar
#84 - themassivefail (03/17/2016) [-]
Sound. Yeah I bought a new pair of headphones over there, they tend to be cheaper than overseas so you can afford to get better quality.

Ah, extremely frowned upon. So long as no one see's you do it, you should be fine. I mean, smoking was technically not allowed on the streets either, but I was never stopped. And I certainly wasn't the only one doing it. Spitting could technically be illegal, but I highly doubt it's uphelp strictly. Like most of their laws.
#46 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
cheap food in Japan?
good to know

I mean, convenience stores are pretty cheap, right?
User avatar
#47 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
Yep. Konbini's. Open 24 hours too. Their standard for food is pretty high too, so you can actually trust it. Good quality too.

And then there are the Izakayas... kinda like a gastropub, but some have this deal where you get locked in from 7pm till 5-6am (when the trains run) and its all you can drink+eat for less than 40 bucks. Alcohol included. Unlimited orders.
#49 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
Izakayas, more or less "real" Japanese pubs.
is there a way of not getting into these deals?
I mean, I made reservations at a few apartments and I don't wanna get locked into an Izakaya if I can sleep on a futon/in a bed I'm renting
User avatar
#50 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
Ha it's a thing you purchase, you can leave whenever you like, but its like you can't get in after 7. So I guess a lock-out? In a way.
#51 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
lemme just take a real quick look at my maps, 'kay?

huh. my Tokyo map doesn't have any real restaurants. I should try and fix that.
Matsumoto....Izakaya: check. Tonkatsu and Yakitori restaurants too
Osaka....fuck it. Dotonbori is right around the corner

seriously. I'm gonna be living right around the corner from Dotonbori, you know, Japan's kitchen
an entire street filled with stalls and restaurants.

#53 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
The one I frequented was in Yokohama, I spent three months there in Hodogaya. Lovely place.
#55 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
Yokohama?
I bet.

was planning on going there (this summer, hence the mentions of maps. because I can't find any good maps and I'd rather not walk blindly into an unknown country)
anyways, was planning on visiting the Kirin Beer Village, CupNoodles Museum and probably the amusement park, until I calculated a little bit and realized that it was cheaper to instead of 2 nights Yokohama, getting an additional night in Tokyo and an additional night in Osaka was gonna be cheaper.
User avatar
#61 - themassivefail (03/14/2016) [-]
Yokohama is a 10 minute train ride from Tokyo, I'd go to Tokyo almost daily. The Minato Mirai area is well worth a visit! The landmark tower, red brick warehouse, the cupnoodle museum, amusement park, the docked ship... would recommend! Half a day would cover all that and some if you're stayin in Tokyo. If I remember correctly, there's a train line that goes straight to M.M from Tokyo station!
#62 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
don't know if I will go to Yokohama for that half day
it kinda depends on a bunch of things:
1. how fast I'm done in Akihabara, because that's where I'll be getting most of the shit I'll be bringing home
2. I'm a tall guy and I like wearing loose-fitting clothes, so Harajuku is a main problem. the problem being where I wanted to look for some clothes, but I don't think they have anything that would fit my preferences.
3. I already have another backup plan: Fuji-Q Highland, which is about 3 hours away by train from what I've read.
4. funds. I prefer not to waste too much money while in Japan. a certain amount tops for each day
User avatar
#63 - themassivefail (03/15/2016) [-]
Fair enough! I've been to all those places myself! Akihabara is a good day trip, especially with friends. It's not too big, but the buildings are tall, so there are many floors, but many of the buildings are just clones of the others. You'll see a LOT of the same type of stuff, so it'll benefit you not trying to see everything. A maid cafe is always worth a trip too, if you don't mind being put on the spot and a little embarrassed. ha.

Harajuku does have stuff for tall people, as well as loose stuff. The 'punk teenager' style is not quite out of fashion around the younger tokyo crowd yet. But they do it like it's still the 80's. Demin, big loose shirts, suspenders, etc. You should be able to find what you're looking for. (I wanted to get a full suit made myself, their summer fabric is fantastic. you can wear a full suit in 30+ degrees C and still be comfortable)

Fuji-Q was a blast...definitely not the cheapest. I don't think it took us three hours to get there, maybe two or so (from Yokohama station) but there were 3-4 train transfers, and we got off on the wrong stop by accident, so that extended it a bit.

As for funds, depending on what you want to do, things are pretty cheap! Trains especially. As soon as you get there, head to a station and get a SUICA card. It'll be like a transit pass for swiping, instead of having to pay for a new ticket everytime. It's 5 bucks, can be loaded at many machines with cash, and costs nothing to maintain. In fact, when you're done, you can even return it for the 5 bucks! I kept mine for a momento. If you wanna know anything else about how much stuff costs, I'd be more than happy to tell you!
#65 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
wait. suits
how long would it take to have a suit made?
how much would it cost?
and where would I get one made?

#74 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
That video lied to you haha unless there are machines i'm unaware of.

Fair enough! neither did I till i went there lol
User avatar
#72 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
It certainly isn't good haha. I never really ventured into cheese though...

The drinking age there is 20, which is a little odd as you can buy booze and cigs from vending machines on many MANY streets without the use of an ID. They have a lot of trust in their society, which I think is fantastic.
#73 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
I thought I saw this youtube vid that explained you'd need some sort of special ID or card for buying cigs from vending machines.
not like I need it, since I don't smoke.
#64 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
I've read somewhere that some maid cafes have very stuck up staff and some places don't even have english speaking staff. I'm not too sure about them, whether I'll visit one or not.

Fuji-Q has a day pass for around 5000 Yen. and then you can get in on anything. Did my research there.

I'm buying a rail pass next week, actually, the 2 week one. prices have been going down again, luckily. I'm gonna travel a lot and pretty far and pretty much every day. the only other tickets I need are the Kansai Thru twice 3 day passes for unlimited travelling with the Osaka metro and some buses in Kobe and Kyoto

#70 - themassivefail (03/15/2016) [-]
Onigiri is worth a try, there are many flavours. I didn't find one I didn't like haha. Fair play on the sushi bit though, it's not for everyone.

Ah good, you can get chicken there cheaper than here haha. That's what I lived off. And rice. Stay away from the bacon though...
#71 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
Japanese bacon is bad?
I was told to stay away from the cheese. small quantity for a shitload of money

do you have any idea what the drinking laws are like in Japan?
I mean, I'm fairly certain I'm allowed to drink, but just to be sure
User avatar
#68 - themassivefail (03/15/2016) [-]
Well yeah, so did I, but I quickly made friends there for sure. That'll work for sure! I highly recommend the pre wrapped sandwiches, onigiri, and sushi platters lol so good. So cheap. As for vit c, I lived off orangina XD it was delightful
#69 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
I'm def going for the prewrapped sandwhiches.
not sure about onigiri and I ain't touching sushi.

I don't really like fish. or any kind of raw meats for that matter.
and I don't really like rice either.

speaking of which, I gotta make dinner.
rice with sweet-sour sauce and chicken.
I do like chicken
User avatar
#66 - themassivefail (03/15/2016) [-]
I don't know, unfortunately I never had the chance to look into it which I regret.

Eh it depends, they are all themed too. It's fun with friends, that much I can say.

True, yeah, it's just the side shows and the food that isn't the cheapest. Plenty of world record holding rides though!

Ah that'll be worth it for sure then. I had considered one, but for three months it was NOT cheap. So there's no way it would've even paid for half of itself if I did haha.
#67 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
I'm not going with friends. hell, I'm not even going with a group. I'm going alone

yeah, I know. I'll be..uhh....bringing some food from convenience stores. they're open 24/7, if anything, I'll get up early, visit a convenience store and then get on the train to Fuji-Q.
I never have breakfast when getting up early. just some juice to get my vitamin C for the day

They don't have to be romantically involved prior. NTR is just a guy who likes a girl, and she holds hands with another guy. The shittiest fetish because it's inherent that you root for the guy who doesn't succeed.

"literally means "cuckold" and shortened as NTR is a hentai genre where in a heroine will be introduced as having a significant other, which may be a husband, a boyfriend, or even a partner in a BST affair. The story will then show the aforementioned heroine being intimate with another man thus provoking jealousy in the audience by proxy."

Urban dictionary gave me this. I know what it is but can't explain for shit.
