Well, it has been a bit of a hazzle the information we had thanks to the spin off to take as more canon-info and include it in our muses.
There’s a little confusion -understandable since this is mostly a Japanese issue - about Erwin Smith current relationship status.
The status says unmarried and often in the western side of the planet that means single, so basically it means Erwin is a sort of eligible bachelor?
In fact, it says “Unmarried” (未婚: Mikon) , not “Single( Dokushin: 独身 )” and that in Japan is a serious issue. For guys to be over 28-35 years and still not properly married it’s an insult and to be treated as such it’s basically saying “This guys has issues and doesn’t want to marry/this guy has someone and can’t tie the knot”.
It’s not a proper Civil status, it’s an insult for many =/.
In this poll - after translated by Japancrush - you see how the guys react to the unmarried thing and how society literally takes it as an insult for guy to not settle down. Often the people tagged as unmarried are Parasite single, Herbivore men or people who have illicit/uncommon relationships who can’t tie/won’t tie the proverbial knot and are considered a problem.
So, just to consider: Erwin Smith is declared unmarried and not single; that means he either has an issue to not marry or he has a relationship under the carpet and doesn’t want to marry/can’t marry.
It could be he just can’t/doesn’t want to/won’t marry even when it’s expected for his age and rank. This is more a word to express what he should be doing instead of his normal civil state =/
Mr. Isayama has stated that Erwin is unmarried because he is not certain when he will die. There’s no other social thing going on, as much as I would like that.
hi just read your laduree post and was wondering what macaron shop in nara is it that you go to that is fresh?
That was quite a while ago, I think. I haven’t been there in ages because I live in Kyoto. Hmm, but I should go back and find it. I don’t remember the name of the place but it is a cute, white shop with a lovely picture window, right near the main station exit. Hard to miss, I think, because it has a much different character than all the other shops around it.
When you leave the Kintetsu station, you take the first exit to the right. Once you get up on street level, it is in the streets off to the right. If you don’t see it right away (less than two minutes walking), you may have the wrong street or it may have closed.
HI EU -nuzzles-
Hey yourself, Kage. ;D Good to be back among the slacking.
You’re alive o/
I am! Woo hoo!
i hope the work party is short and that you get some good sleep tonight. <3
It was looong, but super fun! The southside office is always fun. We played bingo and I was the second winner. I won… a blender. ;D I use to use a blender (a really old one) every week back in the States, so I was pretty happy. I don’t know what it looks like, yet, though. I have to pick it up on Tuesday.
And then a few of us went to karaoke and got roaring drunk. It was like some kind of ‘get the gaijin sloppy drunk’ conspiracy this year. One of the guys (who has a CBR1000) kept refilling my wine glass at the dinner. Then he filled my champagne glass, too. Ree-dik-yoo-lous.
I don’t even remember everything that happened at karaoke. Except, um, I got extremely extroverted when they pushed me into singing Lady Gaga.
