Why do i love japanese?
Why do I love Japanese? It all started when I learned about the word "Anime" I had watched it before with out even knowing
it. I watched Pokemon, Dragonball z, and digimon. I didn't even know they were Japanese... After that
I wondered about anime, I was introduced to some anime by my best friend Senpai, or Amanda. I use to go over her house
all the time to watch anime. We watched it in Japanese a lot too.
Senpai knew a lot of Japanese. I wanted to know what they
were really talking about in an anime. The subtitles can only go so far. In a language a word can much more meaning
in Japanese, but when translated to English it loses its depth. My first Japanese word ever was, "Doushite" meaning
"why" it was from an anime that I wont go into. ^__^;;;; A character kept saying that... tee hee it was shuichi, shhh
don't tell. Of course I didn't know how to spell it... when I IMed senpai I spelt it "dosday" lol!!!!! she
got mad and told me I had to type it right or else... hehe I love her so much.... No, I do! Well my next word was "hai"
meaning "yes" formally.
I guess I was very immature about my Japanese a long
time ago, I thought I knew a lot, but now I know so much... and it just shows me how much I don't know.. it's
a sign that’s your growing, if you can relies that you don't know everything. I often spelt things wrong
and spoke it wrong as well, but I never gave up! I would chase after any Japanese person I could find to learn
more, or to try out my Japanese. My heart desperately wanted someone to talk to. Now a day’s senpai
hates the Japanese languages she says it brings back bad memories... So I really didn't have anyone to talk to... there aren’t
many Japanese people where I live...
I learned Japanese on my own... No teacher, no help... Only what anime could supply. Watching anime in Japanese
got me use to the word order, pronunciation, and the flow of the language. Don't get me wrong I did research, a
lot... I even have my very own translation sheet.. maybe about 20 pages long... I had a few books, but I didn't
use them much. I'm not quite sure how I learned... I guess it just happed. like magic!!!! not.... It wasn't
easy... I did work hard. When I watched anime and I heard a word I liked, id always listen
for that word, I’d try to hear the context. After I learned a bunch of words, id watch an anime I haven’t
seen in a while... I would be amazed in the Japanese I could pick out now that I didn't see before. This
is a great way to learn. Never stick to one anime to learn Japanese... All anime uses similar yet different
Japanese... Formal and informal depends on the anime and characters. but that’s not all.
Some words I couldn't figure out on a translator.. the sub definition was
off so I couldn't find the real meaning... One hard word was "Dame" it means "bad or no good". That’s
not what the subs said... Also it has a deeper meaning, but only by studying a person can find out the true mystery
of any language. wow... I wrote a lot huh... I could Wright a lot more too... I bet no one reads this anyway... My
heart could go on and on... but I don't want to make anyone fall asleep...
like a lot of anime, although i have to say i'm a "naru-tard", yes i love Naruto. However only the Japanese version.
like a lot of music too. A lot of anime music in Japanese, but I also like American music as well. Linkin park is a
good artist, yet there are songs I wont listen to. But there are a few I really love like "My December". I tend
to like love songs as well, like "You'll me in my heart", "True colors", and "At the beginning" M2M is good as well.
