🔊 🎙 Listen Every Day Challenge - Fall 2022 🍁

Summary Post

November 13th
What did I listen to?: A Series of Unfortunate Events Ep 7, 8, 9
How much time did I spend listening?: 135 min-ish (3 episodes)

I watched…3 episodes back to back? Because this show’s vibe just fit with what I was in the mood for today? I think this is my new record for most Japanese listened to in one day lol. I did take some random breaks in the middle, and I didn’t pay super close attention the whole time (I was going for more extensive listening than intensive listening). But I am deeply enjoying the Japanese interpretation of the Carmelita Spats character lmao, like the voice actress they got for her is great :joy: To me, her voice tone sounds just shy of anime-level cutesy, which is exactly perfect for this character (for those unfamiliar, Carmelita Spats is this absolutely horrid little girl who wears pink frilly dresses and thinks she’s the cutest person in the world when in reality she’s a rude brat who bullies everyone). In the English dialogue, her favorite way to insult people is by calling them “cakesniffers.” In Japanese, this gets translated as “かしくんくん,” which sounds adorable and insulting and exactly like something a Japanese Carmelita Spats would say :joy:

Insult breakdown:
かし - as in お菓子; confections; sweets; candy; cake
くんくん - “sniff-sniff (of an animal)​” (it’s onomatopoeia)
