When Japanese speak English, it's converted into Japanese syllables. So stuff like Hamburger becomes Hanbaagaa, and cheese becomes Chizu.

jesus christ, are you really this dense?
waifu is how a japanese person would pronounce the word wife. it's not just 'adding u to the end'
that's like thinking adding -o to anything makes it spanish, or the plural of anything that ends in s being -i

>>100877387
>waifu is how a japanese person would pronounce the word wife.
I may be pretty stupid, but even I realize that.
I still don't understand, or you've yet to explain to me why the rules of pluralized Japanese terms apply to waifu, which is simply the transliteration of "wife" in English pronounced with a Japanese accent.
It's not a real Japanese word. Same goes for derived terms such as "daugtheru" coined by 4chan.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm only saying you're not explaining very well why you are or are not.
>>
Will you faggots shut the fuck up and post waifus goddamn.
>>
>>100877897
because saying 'waifus' just sounds stupid. it'd be waifuzu, but part of 'saying it like a japper would' is not using plurals. it's like you don't understand what makes the phraseology fun and interesting to begin with
4chan coins stupid terms sometimes. that is why i'm so butthurt, because incorrect terms catch on like fucking crazy whereas correct terms (hazubando for example) never get used.

There are joke terms to begin with. Their meaning may go beyond that, but no one writes waifus, or husbando, or daugtheru in the sense that they think this would emulate Japanese pronunciation.

What did 'everyone' get mad about? I'm going to need sources on that. I think it was pretty well-received in Japan. It was a surprisingly unpolitical film. The film stays far from the actual war that is mentioned in the background, but never depicted. It's more of a reflection on troubled times in Japan and how things come to pass.

it was kind of weird though how the surface tension of water was turned up so high.. as if she was 12 inches tall and crying

they did a nice job of that with arrietty, the tea was a single drop in a cup. most tiny-people things get that wrong. of course in live action you don't really have any choice
and really if you're going to pull that string, the surface tension would also mean your tiny little arteries couldn't pump your blood around..

speaking of being completely anal though, did the concept of the borrowers ever really bug anyone else? I mean, how did they come to be? have they been living in our huts since the beginning of time? how'd they survive when we didn't have much to borrow? My pet theory is they're related to fairies, they just lost their magic and wings and had to try to get by without them

If anything, there's more male main characters than female. Just the most famous movies that came out in the west had female characters. But even movies like Mononokehime and Laputa, the real 'main' character was male, not female.

The difference between Disney Prices and Miyazaki male leads is, Miyazaki male leads like Ashitaka and Pazu actually 'led' the movie right from the start. They were usually the smartest, bravest and overall central characters in the story, but they didn't need any major training or development to make them a hero. They stepped right up from the beginning and saved the girl (Pazu) or took on a curse (Ashitaka and Porco) or whatnot from the start. The rest of the movie was about how they overcame the adversity they had at the start of the movie.

Disney princes are usually the most dense characters in the story. Comparable to Luke Skywalker or a Final Fantasy hero like Tidus or Vaan. They think they're the best guy ever, but in fact they're ignorant, full of themselves and fold to even the slightest challenge. And they spend much of the movie being shown how stupid they are by the female main character and whatever challenge the antagonist throws at them. This is usually followed by them being 'trained' to be a hero and some weak love story with the female main character. Then magically, at the end of the movie, they pull their act together and save the day. This is hardly the basis for a strong male lead. Which is why most people tend to focus on either the female character or the antagonist in Disney movies.

Miyazaki wrote the script for it and produced it. He came up for the movies central theme, including the idea of 'Country Road' and everything about the main characters writing/Violin themes.

It was also the breakout work for director Yoshifumi Kondo, who was at the time Miyazaki's star pupil and hand picked successor to run Ghibli studios when he retired. Unfortunately, Yoshifumi Kondo died of an Aneurism from being 'overworked' a couple years after Whisper of the Heart finished. Which Miyazaki blamed himself for and retired shortly afterwards. (At the time, this was his second time retiring).

Everything about the movie screams Miyazaki. He just didn't 'direct' it.
