So awesome that even a non-Portuguese speaker can appreciate One of the few things our awful anime dubbers ever did well was Digimon openings/endings

You should watch it again definitely - Adventure and Tamers. Digimon is one of those series that I loved more upon watching as an adult, far better and more complex than Dragon Ball or Pokemon imo.

While we're at it, a few more epic anime soundtrack:



And perhaps the only saving grace of the debacle that was Captain Tsubasa Road to 2002:

Haha. Great diversion tactic. The others may be clueless but...

Serbia was one of the last places in europe to allow a railroad to come through it and it's one of the last places where having a mistress is still ok. Clearly you are having your cake and eating it too.

Envious in Canada.

Always found the Portuguese opening and ending songs much better, but this one is cool too.



You should watch it all if you find the time, you don't even need to download, I'm sure the episodes are available for direct watching either on Youtube or Project Free Tv or something. I find myself enjoying the anime series/kid shows I watched as a kid even more now that I'm older and can understand things better.

As for Pokemon, as point by Trollicki it was a merchandise driven series, much like Yu-gi-oh, so the constant elements were to be expected. It's still a very fun series to watch, I believe it stood the test of time far better than Dragon Ball.



Same here. Digimon was always my favorite of those, Adventure 01 and Tamers are just epic. I still get all sad when Takato and co. lose their digimon in the Tamers finale
How is that not creepy? Few mental health professionals would have the courage to take your case.

Man, I'm really starting to wonder whether you know anything about Serbia, go ahead and try having a mistress and see what happens... this is not Salt Lake City

What? Where are you getting this from? Serbia had railways starting with the mid 19th century, mostly along with Romania. Most lines were operated within the Austro-Hungarian Empire. First Serbian line was opened in 1854, that's 15 years after Canada. Part of that line runs through Serbia, part through Romania. If you look at this with today's eyes, you can see that the first line there was international.

Mr Oracle doesn't live in Serbia, so his knowledge is somewhat limited/distorted... if he has any that is, thanks for the info

I'd definitely like to, to attend Wimbledon and/or the World Tour Finals. But my very inconvenient exam schedule probably means that's not happening any time soon (also not exactly rich at the moment)

Mostly through watching tons of films and TV series in English from a young age. I also read a lot in English as I prefer to read novels in their original language, and mostly had to speak English while abroad. I pick up foreign languages more easily than most, but practice does make perfect

Re: Q&A With Mark Lenders.

I would say quite an accomplishment for such a young person.
I noticed a Mancunian above asking you to come to the UK, have you ever been there? Manchester?

Thank you English is my third language, after Portuguese and French.

Yup, I've been to UK, but not Manchester. Only London on two occasions - one with my family when I was still a child, the other one with some friends in November 2009, ended up getting tickets for the final day of that epic group A of the World Tour Finals - Murray vs Verdasco and Del Potro vs Federer.
