    Goddamn you’re …
    you’re awesome. I lol’ed at the “Pirate King” comment. Are people really trying to learn japanese through anime? The most I can pick out is a couple of words; how can anyone be dumb enough to try and learn the japanese sentence structure from anime, for god sakes? Brainchildren, I tell ya.

    He said “You shouldn’t devote your entire life to anime.”

    lmao. AMEN. I’ve picked up on quite a deal of japanese from anime, but I also seriously take japanese and I never have mocked the voices like my friends do from cartoons… I think eactly what you said. Cartoons are CARTOONS. They’re SUPPOSED to sound silly, cute, and inhuman. XDDD

    haha nice one! a …
    haha nice one! a bit harsh, i guess some people need that though. at least you say good things about anime too. one can spend a couple hours a day watching it while going out for 5 to still have somewhat of a social life while getting that anime fix some people crave(myself can sometimes be included ;D).

    very well said lol. …
    very well said lol.. i’m also an anime loser and i do practice japanese in a half-assed, lazy way. I can speak as a walking example that no matter how much Anime you watch, it won’t teach you more than a few phrases in japanese. If you insist on using anime to make learning japanese more enjoyable, get some un-translated manga and try to translate them yourself. That method actually has merit to its approach, but it won’t be enough… get textbooks

  23. CrystalApple1 on January 5th, 2009 8:37 pm

    Yeah, but not as a …
    Yeah, but not as a PRIMARY source. Anime on the side sure. But, you need better stuff if you want to improve and have an understanding of the language. So you don’t have to memorize soooo much.
