@Tsuchinoko: 'weeaboo', while a stronger insult than 'otaku' is here in the west, kinda sums up the general idea of the slavering idiot who drools over anime twelve-year-olds in bunny costumes, goes out of their way to purchase token Japanese foods like pocky and sushi (even if their budget can't support it), buys kimonos off ebay and finds some way to wear it to school, work, or wal-mart for the weekly shopping trip, spends an entire trip to Disney World in the Japan section of Epcot, and proclaims Japan is the best and most tolerant country in the world without knowing a damn thing about it or their history outside what a Samurai Warriors game has shown them. weeaboos won't even look at people who aren't in some way asian (if not Japanese entirely) in terms of dating or a potential love interest, and that's if they can tear themselves away from their manga or anime versions of people in the first place. a weeaboo learns Japanese from anime alone instead of using anime as a tool alongside books, schooling, and conversation with native speakers, then proclaims themselves an expert on the topic of anything Japanese even if all they've done is read a few webpages about the given subject and copied some random kanji onto their school notebook. They know everything there is to know about Japan (except the rude awakening that awaits upon their first actual visit ;)).

think of them as 'Japanese otaku', if you will — they are obsessed with anything Japanese to the point of driving away friends and family. probably the single worst thing about weeaboos IMO is that they're not in it out of any respect of the culture and the people of Japan. weaboos cannot be reasoned with as they are; their only hope is that they eventually snap out of their absurd worship. :(

btw, the word itself has nothing to do with anything Japanese. :3

@RR529: 'gozaimasu' makes things formal in terms of politeness — Japanese has several levels of politeness that are sometimes hard to navigate. 'arigatou' can pretty much be said to anyone, (kinda like 'thanks') but if you're saying it to maybe someone in a position of authority (like the head CEO of your company who just gave you something nice) or if you're a shop owner thanking someone after a transaction, you'd use 'arigatou gozaimasu' or the super-polite 'domo arigatou gozaimasu'. if you're in a very informal situation among friends and you're in a hurry or something, you could get away with just 'domo' (because they'd know what you meant), but you'd never say that kind of thing to your boss (unless he was a really cool guy D: )

good to know! if you're just looking for a place to share random opinions on things, perhaps a personal blog, twitter, or facebook would be a better place, lucianaeevee. You could even link to it in your signature so that people could visit and see what you're thinking at any given point in time. :3

Sólo como comentario final... Espero que puedan entender lo difícil que es a veces plasmar una idea en otro idioma con la claridad del idioma natal.

We understand it's easier to express yourself in your native language, Jahir, but please, we ask that you use English at Nintendo Life. If you prefer, you can post a Google Translated version and then link to the original via Google Translate (like this would be the link for your sentence above) so that Google Translate will show what your original Spanish said for anyone curious. Thanks in advance :3

also, before anyone asks, it's one thing to be explaining words and short phrases in teaching mode (e.g. why this thread is OK), but it would be another to post essays in Japanese for critique or to start actually commenting on articles and such in Japanese — that, we'd ask you'd either use English or the Google Translate method, and the essays we'd ask you host on your own space (like a blog or something). :3

@TheDreamingHawk: he's based on a child's doll, that's why he looks the way he does. he couldn't help the choice he made; after all, the other dolls Gaz owned were Bowser, Mario, Toadstool, etc. — all existing characters in the SMRPG world. Geno was the only original form the star-person could possibly have taken, and he states later in the game that he knows about all of the Mario characters iirc (and so do the rest of the star-people who watch over Star Road), so it had to have been a conscious choice to choose the Geno doll over one of the others.

As for magic use, you'll note that Mallow was also a magician of sorts, and I don't see you angling for him not to have been in the game either. There were a lot of original elements introduced in SMRPG that helped pave the way for the Paper Mario and Mario&Luigi games... the RPGs aren't your typical MARIO game and can't really be held to the same stringent 'plumber good, mushroom good, turtle bad' standards. :3
