    Subarashii: (pron. soo-ba-da-shi) Also from Japanese. Def: Great, awesome, perfect. Usually used to thank someone for doing something. E.g.: "Hey, someone pulled all our files for us. Subarashii."

    Hello everybody,

    Today I present to you, Subarashii by yours truly. I have only completed one icon so far since this is INCREDIBLY hard to make, although I fully intend to get it done soon.

    What do you think? Should I continue (vote in poll please).

    Reason why this is so hard to make; I have to use my Kana keyboard and carefully use the right symbols to make the words for the apps. I then have to make a glyph that describes exactly what the app is without people going "WTF! (Where to find

    )".

    I will include more of these icons soon, maybe in other colours and release the theme with a non uniform colour scheme (same style, just in random different colours to give the home screen some variety)

    So in a nutshell, you're finding a japanese translation for every App you can think of the describes the app, and what it does? Nice.

    They might be wrong, I dunno, I can't be bothered putting my iPod into Japanese haha.

    EDIT: Oh and for funsies, are you sure wakarimash*ta is the right verb?

    That probably isn't the right verb, but I am using my Textbook to do this, as I am studying the language. I looked it up and the Dictionary I have is very complicated, so how is this?

    "Hai, Ben!" or "Hai, Ben san"? If I managed to find the correct meaning in my complicated dictionary, could you change the Poll Option names for me Meikura?
