About and FAQ

Minus Kakugo is the best blog for Japan netizen translation! Minus Kakugo was born out of a demand for more translated comments from Japanese message boards such as 2ch and Girls Channel. I (the site creator) noticed that there is indeed a lack of such sources for this information, and that there are readers who would like to read these comments translated. I know there are lots of sites that offer translations of Korean comments, but so few for Japanese comments. Also, since I frequent these message boards, I have noticed so many topics that I know international fans would enjoy. Thus, Minus Kakugo was born! Here, you can get all of your Japan gossip and Japanese netizen comments, much like the similar site Netizen Buzz.

What does "Minus Kakugo" mean?

"Minus kakugo" is a phrase that is frequently used on the site Girls Channel. "Minus" refers to a comment getting down votes, and "kakugo" literally means "resolution; resignation; readiness; preparedness." So basically, when someone is posting a comment that they know will get lots of minuses, they will precede their comment with "minus kakugo."

Why are the netizens so mean?

I don't know. I'm guessing that from what I read on the all the threads about marriage, their husbands aren't helping out with kids or are busy having uwaki and going to fuzoku and pachinko. That, or they are just bitter and love to hide behind a keyboard. I cringe at some of the terrible things I read on these topics, but I remember to take them with a grain of salt. It's basically like reading Youtube comments; you know you shouldn't, but you do anyway. The Japan gossip and Japanese netizen translation you find here in now way represent the views of an entire country.

How often will you update?

As often as possible. The ideal is at least one post per day but I would love to do 2 or 3.

What is Girls Channel?

A popular site, similar to 2ch, but for women. On this site, women discuss various things such as celebrity gossip, marriage, love, cultural phenomena, and more. Comments are typically anonymous.

Why don't use translate from news sites?

For one, most major Japanese news sites do not allow comments on the articles. Secondly, if they do, there are usually very few comments. The news site that allows comments and tends to be most commented on is Yahoo Japan. Japanese internet users tend to use anonymous forums like 2ch and Girls Channel a lot. Therefore, these sites are the best sources.




****
IMPORTANT:
I will mostly be posting translations of Girls Channel threads, and 2ch threads. For 2ch threads I use Matome sites because the original site is awful to read. Also, 90% of the time if there is an article at the beginning of a post that is more than a paragraph or two I won't bother to translate it as the gist of what the thread is talking about can usually be inferred from the title and the comments. Otherwise, if there is a long passage of text I will just do a loose translation and get all of the main points. This does not mean that I am leaving out details to sway the content of a post in a particular direction. I do not translate articles, only comments.

 Please note: What I do is translate, nothing more. None of the thoughts or opinions expressed on this site reflect my own. The only opinions of mine will be seen occasionally in the comment section of a post, not in the post itself. I DO NOT necessarily agree with all comments I translate. I do not have an "agenda." I am not out to make any particular group or celebrity look bad. I do not manipulate posts or omit details to reflect my own opinions. I do not select comments to make it look like the commentators are leaning a certain way. I am not trying to portray anything or anyone in a particular manner.

In addition, please do not take these comments as a representation of the thoughts of an entire nation. This is but a small representation of what the majority of Japanese people, much less netizens, think. Again, take it with a grain of salt. Note that when you can hide behind anonymity, anything can come out. Think of it this way: imagine if Japanese netizens' view of Americans came completely from Youtube comments or blog post comments? The horror!

If you use any of the translations posted here, please credit me! Ideally, you would notify me before re-posting. All credits go to "Minus Kakugo." Do not post my translations as your own!


Update: Recently, the original blog owner decided to give over ownership of the blog. Now there is a new translator, but the content will be the same. I will be commenting under the name "Mai Kaku." Look forward to making lots of great Japan netizen translation posts!

  5. With no uncertainty, the best known Wall coverings divider covering material is wallpaper. It is anything but difficult to apply, has a long life compass and is reasonable, a considerable measure of persons picked this material despite the fact that it is of mid-range quality. Despite the fact that there are only seven fundamental examples on which all tiles are based, wallpapers can likewise be specially crafted, subsequently offering the option of individual models. Another favorable position of choosing wallpaper is that on the off chance that you ever alter your opinion, it is exceptionally easy to bring down (simply brush it down with steam).

    Yan sanayi toner adıyla da bilinen bu ürünler genellikle çin malı ithal yazıcı toneri kartuşlarıdır.
    Orijinal yazıcı kartuşu muadili ürünlerde kalite ve fiyat standardı bulunmaz, markasız olarak ithal edilen edilen ürünler satıcı firmaların koydukları kutuların üzerinde yer alan isimlerde markalaşmış olsa dahi markaların tescili olmadığı gibi, kutu üzerinde ithalatçı firmaya ait bilgi yer almaz.
    Muadili oldukları markayla ilişkisi olmayan yan sanayi veya eşdeğer kartuşlar, üreticilerine ödenen para ile doğru orantılı kaliteye sahiptirler.
    Bu nedenle ucuz fiyat ile satılan ürünlerde kalite çizgisi kalitesiz toner dolumu yapan toner dolum merkezlerinin ürettikleri kartuşlardan dahi kalitesiz kartuşlara rastlanması doğaldır.
