Fandom blog, mostly Ace Attorney/Ghost Trick/Dangan Ronpa, but with other fandoms and unrelated reblogs thrown in. I am here for my own amusement, which hopefully includes providing you with some amusement in the form of screencaps and silly drawings.

Spoilers are tagged with acronyms ("gt spoilers," "t&t spoilers," etc.). Personal posts are tagged with "kumquat kumquat" and usually deleted later.

Tumblr tags: #learning _________ 
Can I become Fluent in ______ in ______ months/weeks/days? No. You can’t. 
Can I learn Japanese from just watching Anime/Korean from Kpop/Chinese from Wuxia films?Not on your life. Do you only speak the english you know from Spongebob? N’SYNC? The 300? Didn’t think so.
What about Rosetta Stone?For $180-$399 dollars? Are you insane? The program is built to teach you the Romantic languages.  If you buy Rosetta stone for $400, and pass up every free resource on this list, I doubt your desire to actually learn anything. Don’t do it to yourself. That is a lot of money you probably won’t get back.
But I heard that Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Arabic/etc is really difficult:Well if over a billion Chinese people can speak Chinese, why can’t you? No really, don’t let something like this bother you. No, this is not the ease of moving from a English to a Romance language or German, but hey, if you wanted to learn German (and all those ridiculous cases) you’d be doing that. 
But what about ______?I have knowledge on resources mostly limited to JPN/CHI/KOR classes. This is a participatory list, which I am more than grateful to take submissions for.

I repost this every two weeks whether I need to or not. It too good not to and the original compiler deserves that much respect.

Dear Athena,

image

Oh, does Mr. Polly have a special someone?

image

Tell me more about Miss Juniper and I will do what I can!  I’ve done this sort of thing before!

image

Um… and if you don’t mind, could you do something for me as well?  Mr. Nick’s special someone is away right now and I don’t want him getting sad and lonely without her.

image

Please let him know that Mystic Maya will be back soon and will accept his wedding proposal upon her return.  All he needs to do is ask.
