Funny pictures of the day (82 pics) Woman And Noisy In Japanese

This is actually not correct. The kanji 姦 has two meanings:1. Doing something immoral (不倫をする)  and/or raping a woman, therefore used in fornication (姦淫), rape (強姦) and gang rape (輪姦), but also consensual sexual intercourse (和姦)2. Being disloyal or deviate from the right path, therefore used in f.ex. planning something evil (姦計) or treacherous (佞姦) So if there is something meaning “loud” in that kanji, it might rather be the voice of a woman being raped.

Yesterday was payday - reason enough for wasting some money :P Besides some other stuff I purchased the diary from “Bravely Default”, which is basically a book with white pages to write on and the above illustrations in it. I don’t know yet what to use it for, but actually using it wasn’t the motivation behind buying it in the first place :P I feel like I have to compensate years of not being able to buy all the merchandise back in Germany!

Went shopping in Japan …
