The fuck, FFF? Dating a highschooler makes you a normalfag?
>>
>>101200244
In japan - yes.
>>
>>101200244
How the fuck else would you translate riajuu?

And /a/ still shit on commie because they use Eoten and some "memes" years ago

>>101201157

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.

Having a life is internet slang.

Are you some kind of moron?

Right back at you?
>>
>>101202223
No?
>>
>>101200244
Isn't "riajuu" the equivalent of normalfag in Japan?
>>
"So you have a life?" vs "So you're a normalfag?"

DING DING
>>
>>101202308
It is, OP is being retarded.
>>
>>101202436
FFF pls go.
>>
>>101202449
Dude, it's a fucking loanword.
>>
>>101202449
Stop embarrassing yourself.
>>
>>101202379
How is that derogatory?
>>
>>101202516
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?

>>101202596
You don't see how "normalfag" is used derogatory?
>>
>>101202625
other imageboards
>>
>>101202308
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
>>
>>101202625
IRL - no, somewhere else on internet - yes.
>>
>>101202379
The two have completely different connotations. Are you sure you even know how to translate?
>>
>>101202864
-Blessed with friends
-Partying.
-Enjoying normal things.

What would you use to describe this?
>>
>>101202625
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.
>>
>>101203013
Depends on the context.
>>
>>101203180
Would you describe that as "Having a life" Your Honor?
>>
>>101203013
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?
>>
>About 3,010,000 results (0.31 seconds)
>About 60,000 results (0.17 seconds)

Guess which one is used an understood by actual people?
>>
>>101203246
If I were trying to describe it as a positive thing, sure.

Otherwise, "normalfag" could be an obvious response.

>>101203356
Protip: anime isn't always made for "actual people".
>>
>>101203403
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?
>>
>>101203611
Hope you're just pretending to be retarded.
>>
>>101203657
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.
>>
>>101203867
95% of translation is approximation.
>>
>>101203111
>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.
>>
>>101203867
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.
>>
>>101203990
It's as derogatory as 外人 is.
>>
>>101202722
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!
>>
>>101204029
I don't care, you turbonerd. I meant MY post wasn't meant as an insult. Don't assume I write like a retard.
>>
>>101204185
>Don't assume I write like a retard
>turbonerd
>>
>>101204151
>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?
>>
>>101203997
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?
>>
>>101204345
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.
>>
>>101204461
あなたに「-しる」方がいいですか?駄目でしょう。無礼ですようね。
>>
>>101204345
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.
>>
>>101204524

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.
>>
>>101204345
Judging from a quick google/startpage search, the rest of the internet does have contact with the term normalfag; including MAL.
>>
>>101204524
>It would have been like using niger
Holy shit, what decade do you live in?
>>
>>101204345
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.
Just saying.

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?
>>
>>101204544
Actually going over that again I get ya. Shirimasu - know
Shiri - butt
masu - masturbation.

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 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.
