Yuno, I’m troubled.

I ought to be heading to bed soon, but I’ll probably be up for an hour or so.

In the meantime I am faced with a conundrum.

On the one hand, I should take this opportunity to study for the JLPT.


On the other hand, after finishing Exit, I decided to give Brave Story a spin in the PSP.

Inside the first half hour of Brave Story, you meet your first companion.


mmm nekomimi

So I’d like to play Brave Story for a half hour or so.

On the other hand, if I study Japanese, then I will be better able to understand future nekomimi-inside games, even if they don’t get translated.

So really I’m faced with the concept of catgirls-in-actus vs catgirls-in-potentia.

I DID have to look up what the opposite of “in potentia” was. I’m freely admitting that I’m not that big of a geek without reference materials.


I have to give the character designer credit for realizing – leather armor: not cute. Leather armor WITH A BOWTIE and a pink skirt: cute.

Maybe I’ll crack the JLPT book open and do ONE chapter.

Also, since I haven’t been tracking this every day: “Let’s Learn Japanese” progress: 36/52.

Edit: One hour later: TWO chapters read and a self-test administered. Brave Story played: Zero. The things I do for education.
