The Why I'm Considering Deleting This Thread

At least for me, this will prove useful for my nerves.

I was considering deleting this as I feared some of you would consider myself big headed by highlighting said text. Likely far-out thinking, I know. OK, it will remain.

Man you dissapoint me Thought you were a fellow Nippon freak

Its one of the Japanese honorifics, like san, chan, kun, sama, senpai, sensei:

Dono and tono (both written 殿) roughly mean "lord" or "master". This title is no longer used in daily conversation, though it is still used in some types of written business correspondence. It is also seen on certificates and awards, and in written correspondence in tea ceremonies. The word dono originally meant the residence of the aristocracy. It's often translated as "Lord" or "Lady" in English subtitles, though noble status is not necessarily implied; it is more akin to general terms such as "milord" or French "monseigneur". Dono is similar to sama, but the former is less formal and often carries undertones of personal affection.

I know that much! p Just can't get into all that meaty text you provided, thank you.

In the 11th volume of Vagabond, Otsu refers to Jotaro as Jotaro-chin. Seems rarer?

Hehe, I just called you master

And yeah, chin is way rarer, but heard it, a variation of chan:

Playful variations of chan include chin (ちん ?), tan (たん ?), and chama (ちゃま ?). Chin and tan are mispronunciations stereotypically attributed to small children and are thus perceived as baby talk, hence their association with cuteness—though "chin" can also be used to give a character a slightly delinquent, psychotic feel—especially if the character speaking is older, and still using it to address people they nominally respect.

Oh, that's really interesting, because Jotaro made a point of it, that is, why she used that suffix. Different interpretations available. And how awesome was Otsu taking on those guys in the tavern? 'I didn't leave without learning a thing or two about defence!' From Vol. 11, arrived today. Glad to see the return of Takuan.

Damn it! Well, in this case I considered for a bit as it seems to me I've been blabbering on about my problems. This would reflect poorly on me, if so. 'HEY LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME!111'

Sorry, already went ahead and deleted it, but in the WF thread [main Hungarian section] I was dumb again, let me fully acknowledge this. In response to Ronaldo's goal I wrote out 'fluke', presuming Bentex would react negatively. Ultimately this was all set up to test my mentality, but I failed.

I also apologise to Bentex, it was simply a great goal by Ronaldo.
