Final Fantasy XIII news and Famitsu

If you like games you might like to follow a few new sites to be aware of what's going on in the scenario.

This generation, for the XBOX 360 and the playstation 3, unarguably the best games are coming from west, so for most of the games you'll want to read the news in English, as they were written, not a clumsy translation to Japanese.

But there are still many Japanese titles you don't want to miss, one of them might be Final Fantasy XIII. So, welcome to Famitsu:

Btw, the thing I don't like about it is this:

Does someone know a better source of news?

New, blank anki deck + New anki kicks ass

I just created a new, blank anki deck. I still have my old one somewhere, but it's been some time I don't open it anymore. There still vocabulary I'd like to use anki to learn so I threw that out and created a new one.

Btw, new Anki ROCKS!!!
This new reading generation system + furigana is AWESOME.
5 stars of 5.

Also I read the first volume of Kimi no Todoke. Even if you don't like Shoujo manga (like me) it is very entertaining. I give it 4 stars of 5.

The secret to speech

When I find out I'll tell you!

I new reached a stage that even thought pronunciation is super easy, my speech ability is still very weak. But I do I feel it improves a bit everyday, even without virtually no effort. So I just keep doing what I always did.

When I'm closed in my mind I can speak what I want, but when I face a real opportunity I simply can't maintain the pace. I can't come up with words at the required speed. Like an iceberg, the words are there, but very little shows up on the surface. I'm afraid of doing mistakes or I feel ashamed of what I might say.

I feel what I need now is not really output training, it is social interaction.
