"Eye Of The Storm"

def.: The convergence of two or more "Arrival Storm" fronts. The "Eye Of The Storm" is characterized by the arrival of multiple large anime or other related items shipments in a short span of time. Some Eyes Of The Storm can last for an indefinite amount of time and are purported to be related to geographical location; although it's been theorized that financial forces also guide the movement of Arrival Storm fronts.

Been there Many-A-Time as wellÖ.
RightStuf and ether fye or Amazon all arrive same time.( sometimes all three )

I "know" my Mailman hates me because of all of the Packages, fye and Amazon packages would arrive with loose DVDís. ( all the time ) I know he does it.
( Because all the loose DVD's defies the law of Averages )

Every once in a Blue Moon it happens with RightStuf, thatís because they pack their stuf so
Well, itís very hard for him to get a Disc to pop loose.


P.S. I love this thread youíve got going here kikuÖ

Yes... yes... it is a valuable resource for information and nonsense. You (and anybody else) are more than welcome to contribute to the Anime/Manga subculture terminology, be it informative or nonsensical.

Just trying to get my Dere's straight...

"Don't forget the ever helpful Wikipedia's Glossary Of Anime And Manga"

My take on it:

Tsundere: Cold to warm.
Kuudere: Cool to warm.
Dandere: Tepid to warm.
Yandere: Jealous and overprotective.
Dere Dere: Head over heels.

I thought that I would repost a couple of the resources found earlier in this topic for ease of use:

Anime News Network Lexicon

Wikipedia Glossary of anime and manga

BTW I finally made a donation to Wiki today. I feel a lot better now... considering I use their services on a daily basis. Not to mention they are quite possibly the world's largest repository of free information to people.

As imparted by joelgundam01 in the "What manga are you reading/just finished reading?" topic in the "General Manga & Light Novel Discussion" forum:

Onii-san = Big Brother
Onee-san = Big Sister

Actually that's not 100% accurate. In the case of the post I made in the manga thread, my comment was indeed 100% true. However, that's not always the case.

Technically "Nii" is Big Brother and "Nee" is Big Sister. San of course is just a standard honorific, but "chan" and "kun" could also be used.

Onii and Onee are used when the younger sibling has high respect to their older brother/sister or the older sibling has a high status/reputation in society. For example, a noble or royal will call their older siblings "Onii" and "Onee" along with the "sama" honorific at the end.
