The fuck, FFF? Dating a highschooler makes you a normalfag?
In japan - yes.
How the fuck else would you translate riajuu?
And /a/ still shit on commie because they use Eoten and some "memes" years ago
When you hear internet slang, you translate it to internet slang. ryajuu is, literally, an inhabitant of the real world (as opposed to the digital world). So, yeah, that's the right translation, you fucking retard.
My bad, half a year ago, but what did they do wrong with their Fall and this season's shows?
normal john doe?
Having a life. FFF Faggots Fucking Faggots.
Having a life is internet slang.
Are you some kind of moron?
Right back at you?
Isn't "riajuu" the equivalent of normalfag in Japan?
"So you have a life?" vs "So you're a normalfag?"
It is, OP is being retarded.
FFF pls go.
Dude, it's a fucking loanword.
Stop embarrassing yourself.
How is that derogatory?
How is calling someone normal derogatory?
Does anybody outside for 4chan actually use normalfag? or any something-fag?
Are you the same guy who complained about "child bearing hips" yesterday?
You don't see how "normalfag" is used derogatory?
yup, リア literally loaned from english "real".
充 = fill, or full. it is pronounced じゅう which also means (homophone) to live or dwell somewhere
it's basically internet slang for being fulfilled in rl
IRL - no, somewhere else on internet - yes.
The two have completely different connotations. Are you sure you even know how to translate?
-Blessed with friends
-Enjoying normal things.
What would you use to describe this?
Not the phrase "normalfag" itself, but plain, common types of people are called "Joe Schmoe". I had an electronics repair job in the 90's and my boss often referred to the commonplace idiot as "Harry Homeowner."
The context is different here, normalfag is supposed to be reserved for people that want to talk about everyday life on boards with a specific subject, defeating the point of the board. It also keeps away the dudebro scum that want to inform us nerdy losers that we should all go out and party, get drunk, get laid, etc.
Depends on the context.
Would you describe that as "Having a life" Your Honor?
Self-deprecation on the speaker's part (So you have a life?) vs. casting scorn on the listener's way of life (So you're a normalfag?)
You do see where I'm coming from here, right?

Guess which one is used an understood by actual people?
If I were trying to describe it as a positive thing, sure.
Otherwise, "normalfag" could be an obvious response.
Protip: anime isn't always made for "actual people".
May as well leave ryujew untranslated. If you're not going to bother using actual English. The audience will know what it means anyway right?
Hope you're just pretending to be retarded.
If the word will not be understood by the vast majority of people that are going to watch it they will have to look it up anyways. If they are going to look it up anyways they might as well get the real definition instead of some shitty approximation.
95% of translation is approximation.
>normalfag is supposed to be reserved for people that want to talk about everyday life on boards with a specific subject
Holy shit, you're new. Not meant as an insult, you even type like a decent person, but man do I hate seeing how nothing's left of the original meanings of my words.
And what makes you think the vast majority of western Noragami watchers is not going to understand what normalfag means?
Leaving it as riajuu, however, would be a bad choice.
It's as derogatory as 外人 is.
リアル is real. リア is rear.
Also because why not: ライフ is life, but add a ru to get ライフル and you have rifle!
I don't care, you turbonerd. I meant MY post wasn't meant as an insult. Don't assume I write like a retard.
>Don't assume I write like a retard
>I've been using rikaichan for five full minutes!
Yeah, yeah, man, we know you know Japanese.
Since when did dating a girl not make you a normalfag?
Make a post on mal, gaia, ann, anywhere doesn't matter. Ask them if they watch Noragami and if they know without looking it up what a normalfag is. Most will not have a fucking clue. "Normal faggot?" "Why is he calling him queer?"
This episode has left me conflicted. binbogami is yato's gf but she's also a slut AND she goes out and dates random men? Also does yato care about her? Just her money right?
If I had never visited 4chan I might be able to infer the meaning but I would definitely be wondering why anybody thought using fag in a sub was ok. It would have been like using niger.
Normalfag isn't some obscure 4chan term, if that what you think.
Also, while subtitles should be understandable to their target audience, it's not like they have to aim for the lowest common denominator.
The original Japanese script requires the viewer to know what リア充 means, the English translation requires the viewer to know what normalfag means. There's nothing wrong with that.
I don't know if non-4chan people use '-fag' to refer to groups of people, but I do know that 'fag' is used pretty casually to refer to non-homosexuals by many people these days.
Judging from a quick google/startpage search, the rest of the internet does have contact with the term normalfag; including MAL.
>It would have been like using niger
Holy shit, what decade do you live in?
It's not only 4chan that uses faggot as a general derogatory term. Inferring that the word is intended to mean 'normal' with a negative inflection is not as much of a leap as you seem to think, especially considering the context.
>I would definitely be wondering why anybody thought using fag in a sub was ok.
Of course its ok. What are people going to do complain to the internet to get FFF banned from life? Are they going to email Nyaa and get them to not host their releases anymore?
Actually going over that again I get ya. Shirimasu - know
Shiri - butt
masu - masturbation.
It's spelled nigger, nigger.
Ah, I thought it might have been a butt related joke/laugh but I didn't know that マス was also masturbation. Learned something new I guess.
>not doing lewd things with her
what a faggot
>non-4chan people use '-fag' to refer to groups of people
Not as frequently as on 4chan, but people who think that 4chan terminology doesn't apply as general internet terminology are living in the past, 4chan hasn't been obscure for years.
Jesus christ, learn how to use tenses.
Meh, 間違いました*. I'm a bit rusty.
