I recently started to learn German, and I'd like something to listen to so I can get used to the language. Which anime have the best German dubs?
Naruto, now kill yourself.
As a non German, I have to praise Luffy´s and Spongebob´s voice actor(s). That´s some loony, ageless pretty fitting voice for those two.
This is german, right?
The first three Digimon seasons, without a doubt.
Old ones or maybe it's just nostalgia. Like "Eine fröhliche Familie".
One Piece is quite good. FLCL was good too
German? Learn Japanese. You know, there are more japanese dubs...
Black Lagoon and Full Metal Alchemist are OK
I don't understand any of it, but I like it.
I don't really like One Piece, but I might look for it. It is heavily censored in Germany like it is in the US?
Thanks. I've already watched BL, FMA, and about 500 episodes of Detective Conan in Japanese, but I can rewatch them.
I'm already learning Japanese. My Dad wanted to learn German, so I decided I'd learn it too so we can help each other.
>learning a language to understand cartoons
How about no. I'd rather learn something useful.
Jap as a language is shit-tier anyway
dunno the only german subs i have are the gunslinger girl and thats coz is a dual release
yet i only watch it in jap
would watch attack on titan in german though
>I don't really like One Piece, but I might look for it. It is heavily censored in Germany like it is in the US?
It is censored, but not that bad. Newer Episodes aren't censored.
I'm german and i can tell you that our voice actor are even worse than the english va's.
They always use kun, chan, san etc and pronounce it really shitty.
>It is censored, but not that bad
Yes it was bad.
Holy shit this site this exist.
Asuka's scenes in Evangelion
Its the kind of german even germans can only barely understand.
It's Gelman for the German as it is Engrish for the English.
Same guy here.
You could try watching Ranma 1/2 or One Piece those are pretty much the only dubs which dont lead to suicide.
Ranma isn't that bad.
Oh god I remember the hours I spent laughing when I read up on the cut edits.
Thanks, I've never watched it before so I'll add it to my list.
>would watch attack on titan in german though
I would watch Monster in german
Nah chinese have the "r" to "l" but it's thought to be complete east asia with that
You are not the brightest tool in the shed, aren't you?
It even has a glorious german OP
That would be fitting, considering the setting of the show.
Full Metal Panic has a pretty good German dub , Otherwise maybe Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop . The German Code Geass Dub wasnt bad either . Havent watched many other stuff in German.
i am from austria and can't understand a single sentence. it hurts.
All the german you could ever need
Sailor Moon dub is top tier. Also german op > orignal op
flieg nach deutschland und kauf dort ein BD/DVD
Muh nigga. Graz here
Naruto, but just the opening.
Nice try, americunt.
Darker than Black was decent enough.
If you're learning German, Death Note might be okay, especially if you read a German scan of the manga, since the anime basically follows the dialogue 1:1. It was impossible to watch for me though, since the VA for Light was the same one they used for JD from Scrubs. I was always expecting the janitor to show up and fuck Light up.
ES IS ROOOOOTSAM
It's so good. Mugen is voiced by David Nathan who also does Johnny Depp. His his voice is balsam to my ears.
Pretty much confirmed.
Do you know about
Ich finde /a/ zwar grauenhaft da, aber ich bin öfter auf /c/ unterwegs.
Du sollest dort nachfragen, wenn du etwas möchtest.
Also; Daily german threads?
only pretty much. your guess is wrong
Okay, now it's 100% confirmed.
So bad pronunciation, I want to forget it ....
Rörich, ich würd dat lassen...
so was it "die BD/DVD" then?
"Flieg nach Deutschland und kauf dort BDs/DVDs."
Beides ist richtig / Both are correct
I don't think it is worth learning german if you're not planning on living here.
kauf' ist Umganssprache, und damit richtig.
aber eben nur mit dem Apostroph
No, it would be "die BD/DVD" if you had clearly specified a specific BD or DVD. Should be "eine" if you mean a random one.
Sorry. Ist eben auch spät hier.
Why do you want to learn German? Do you want to "kulturell bereichern" us as a "Fachkraft"?
No, he already answered that.
I only meant to ask whether it's a maskulin/neutral/feminin word

Watch it on japanese, it's full of german.
Quite a big difference actually:
Du bist der Letzte.
Du bist das Letzte.
I remember the Elfen Lied dub being pretty good
The different articles allow for more freedom with the sentence structure.
German overall is a language that enables you to play around with words a lot more freely.
I wasn't sure which board was best so I flipped a coin.
I'm learning it because my dad is learning it. He wants to visit Germany someday.

That's only possible due to those different articles.

in what century did Germans actually talk like this?
~9th century AD
I don't think it was ever used.
It sounds very strange to me.
Im ernst, das klingt absurd, wer kommt auf so einen Mist?
Listen to some Digimon songs.
They're not that difficlt to understand.
Well, there is a reason Präteritum is practically non-existent in colloquial German these daays, and the derived Konjunktiv II is usually constructed with "würde" anyway. Sadly.
I'd say go watch Tatort or movies like Das Leben der Anderen, Der Untergang, Goodbye Lenin or Das Boot in stead of the dubbed anime..
Typical german today
>Ey, Shantal, tu mal der Oma winken
'fack ju göhte' is also very good.
Ich hab Faust lesen müssen im Unterricht, und das war nicht halb so schlimm.
I had to read Faust in school and it wasn't half as bad.
I'm more worried about Turks in the future.

Seriously thinking about voting NPD, and I'm disgusted at myself.
The Black Lagoon dub was pretty decent.

Why is HC Strache so based?
Where are you learning German? This thread kind of made me want to learn it instead of Russian now
Although not an anime, I can recommend Scrubs. Other than the medical mumbo-jumbo, it's cool, I learned like 4 different new expressions for having sex from that show.
As for animu, I watched Full metal panic in german and liked the dub overall.
You misunderstand. I'm trying to move southwards to prevent myself from doing that.
You see, as a person living in BW or Bayern, I'd have no motivation to vote those retards.
The problem is, where I live Turks and gypsies are a serious problem, and the people in power do hardly anything, but launch campaigns against the NPD or ProNRW. They do nothing about those poor, uneducated people.
Moving to the South solves that problem, and I can vote Greens or Pirates again.
Doesn't Germany put terrible dubs on fucking everything anyways
why is hc strache such a great musician?
yes, yes they do. and the german subs are even worse. can't watch that shit.
German dubs are pretty much hit or miss.
70% are utter crap while some are rather watchable.
Watch german dubbed Vision of Escaflowne that aired on our MTV 10 years ago (I feel so old). It had the best replaced Opening song ever:
D-don't remind me. I like him, but his music is fucking shit.
> I can vote Greens or Pirates again.
You are scum.

Stay where you are. We don't want you here.

You DO realize we have more Turks in BW than any NPD stronghold in the East? There's less unemployment and stuff though, so people don't need a scapegoat.
If we'd have elections right now, they'd be first.

The Hellsing dub is not bad in german.
Surprised I haven't seen Last Exile mentioned yet. The German dub was comparable to the original Japanese audio.
oder gleich gar niemanden. sind eh alles die gleichen deutschland abschaffenden versager
the point is that german is very flexible as far as word order goes. Although it's SVO in general there are plenty of constructs which allow you to do it differently. And let's not start with split verbs that basically bracket entire subclauses.
Holy Shit, a dub thread that hasn't degraded into mindless shitposting. This a welcome sight.

The K-on dub was pretty nice. K-on can make even german sound cute.
but this time the reason is the country, not anime-dubs.
That's how German is spoken today.
Dumbed down mediaeven uses words like "Shitstorm" or "Hipster" nowdays.
Dragonball Z (script was really well translated with adding a few good touches, great voice actors with Goku having a strong, manly and warm voice)
Full Metal Alchemist (Anime is build around german mythology anyway so it feels really authentic.)
Golden Boy (germany had even best opening)
Ouran Highschool Host Club
I don't remember anything else and I hate german anime fans. Faggots in here speaking german should kill themselves.
Ich wette es enthält Lisa Simpsons' Stimme.
I can only recommend you all the old anime that were playing on TV. Like Ranma, Digimon and Digimon Tamers, Pretty Cure and Inuyasha.
well, blame the anglicism nowadays, not the dubs.
You fucking germans. They just had to mention your language and you all flock to shitpost.
Съебитесь нахуй отсюда! Блядь блядь бляь! Суки!
don't vote for the mainstream parties. they'll win anyway, so just put on some pressure from the sides to keep them from ossifying (yes that's a proper english verb and no, it doesn't have anything to do with Ossis).
Yeah, because you can't say "Scheißesturm" in the TV.
zurück in dein loch, stalin.
btw i am not german.
oh hai Dmitrij
Knowing the German language, I would assume there´s a "deutsches Wort" for Hipster.
So why are you angry at the CDU or SPD? Most of the shit they do is not so bad AND you know Germany is roughly where its now economically, socially and politcally.
I actually voted only for the CDU because Steinbrück wanted to reduce Beamtenpensionen. This fat fuck.
>Protipp: Don't start a thread when it's 3 AM here.
>implizieren dass es hier keine nachteulen gibt
You can't just translate things literally and expect them to make any sense either.
fuck off with your half assed moon runes russki
Huh, that's weird.
That's the reason why everyone says shitstorm or hipster.
Shut up, Ivan.
because they always break the promises they made? I really can´t believe so many german people are still thrusting those fucks
Shitposting is usual when being on /a/ so deal with it or >>out
No, I don't think there's a word for that which is commonly used, but we can easily make one.
For maxium trolling: "Unterkulturmitläufer"
aber auf krautchan verspüre ich starken Fremdscham, da ist es hier um einiges erträglicher
>I actually voted only for the CDU
Okay, say it again.
>because they always break the promises they made?
Such as? The only thing in "recent" memory is Griechenland monies. But Griechenlands survival is essential for our economy.
>have shitstains in eurozone
>more monies for german industries
Really? Because I would assume the dub companies followed this logic:
Show takes place in Clapistan --->let´s slap english words and slang to show how american they are
But the biggest sin that imo German dub has done to /co/mr/a/des must be pic related. As a resident alien who grew with the original/mexican dub, It just hurts to hear this variation (and that the normal german viewer may find it funny)
Sora no Woto.
Ich auch.4chan ist eben nicht nur deutsch und es ist hier auch höchst amüsant zu diskutieren.
>translating english into german
Holy fuck, how pathetic can you get? Why are there even still german subs? What kind of pathetic faggot can't speak english nowadays? Japanese translates horribly to german.
Read. I don't care if Merkel looks at my hentai folder BUT i care about my money. And Steinbrück wanted my harned earned beamtenmoney.
>Most of the shit they do is not so bad
I'll give you that, they're not terrible. But if you leave either of them in power for long their politics will creep into every part of the system.
They need to be rotated and moderated by smaller parties.
Take the "Energiewende" for example. Merkel did 2 or 3 U-turns on the topic. So did the SPD. First she extends the decomission dates for the nuclear power plants. Then fukushima happens and she suddenly pushes for the Atomausstieg and supports renewables. And now it's getting "unpopular" again (really? it's just conservative media pushing against it) due to the feed-in tariffs and they're mulling to cancel the entire thing again.
They're untrustworthy fucks that do everything to stay in power and will change their opinion to whatever is popular within days. If they do politics based on what's popular instead of what's good for the country... why should anyone vote for them? Many of the good things they did were entirely opportunistic.

I wanted to learn Russian before my dad picked German. I even had Haruhi and Spice and Wolf downloaded in Russian. I don't have much reason besides he is learning it, and that I'm 1/8 German I think.
I didn't even think about the time difference, and I've only been learning a few weeks, so I can't really read anything yet.
Thanks to everyone for all your recommendations. I would have responded more often but it takes me 20 tries to get these captchas.

This shit is funny. Even more so if you studied some VWL/BWL.

>stupid right-wing polemic
It's really shitty that germany has no nuclear power plants. I swear the whole world is bandwagoning the hate for nuclear energy. Fucking dumbasses.
So, how come mods have the time to delete legitimate /a/ threads yet they leave /int/ shit like this intact?
>But Griechenlands survival is essential for our economy.
It isn't. That's a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's as "essential" as cyprus' banks are "essential" (yeah, those faggots got bailout money). The only reason why it's "essential" is because people claim so, and then when there's a risk involved with those "essential" banks suddenly the "markets" (read: tea-leaf reading stock traders) "panic" (read: speculate against them to apply more pressure).
And i haven't used this many scarcasm-quotes in a post for a long time

>that germany has no nuclear power plants
we do and will have for several more years, we're just not building new ones.
And we're the world's leading nation in renewables. Last year in may 50% of the days' peak power was entirely produced by photovoltaics. And then there's wind power on top of that. That's a pretty good achievement made within a few years. Of course there's still a lot to do, but 100% renewables + energy storage should be achieveable in a few decades.
If we can be proud of anything it's engineering and infrastructure projects.
We have 16 or so.
>I can't really read anything yet.
And you want to start with dubbed anime? I suggest subbed anime, same way I learned english.

I realise this, but what can man do against such reckless hate.
If you're a computer science person then you don't have the screwed up brain that allows you to digest the bullshit that is practically axiomatic in econ.

I want something to listen to get used to the language. So I'll probably watch something I've already seen so I know whats happening and can pick up some words.
My dad is learning it and so I started learning it to help him and keep him motivated. I would eventually like to read the Grimm Brother fairy tales in the original German, but I think it will be awhile before I can do that.

Google obviously doesn't publish what their criteria are. But if you solve things as it's actually intended and don't trip their bot-detection you should get easier captchas.
Why would you want to learn the shitty nazi language and not learn superior Dutch?
Guys, if you learn German as a third language would it make your Japanese worse somehow? I wanted to learn German but am worried that I'm too dumb for 3 languages anyway. I can watch raw anime since a few months ago and would hate to lose the ability to do that because it took so long.
Ja Studiengang ist recht leicht wenn du nicht schwerbehindert bist. Meist ist um 13 Uhr Schluss. Hinterher Arbeitest du 41 Stunden/Woche aber (bei uns) ist Freitags und Mittwochs schon früh für Bürger geschlossen.
fuck google and fuck moot for implementing this shit.
Yes, you will lost everything you treasured if you learn german.
Also you can't get kids after this.
It obviously is exaggerated and not entirely appropriate for the context. The point is that all this surveillance will be used. And if it is used it's usually used against fringe groups in society. Political activists, non-conforming citizens and the like.
And imagine that the police files criminal charges against you for some bullshit reason (can happen to anyone) and we're far enough down the slippery slope that even the average police force has access to all the surveillance database... they would obviously use it against you.
I'm not saying that we're there yet, but eternal vigiliance is the price of liberty/wehret den Anfängen.
When is Dutch even relevant?
>people are actually defending this
>Also you can't get kids after this.
i'm sorry, what?
Digimon all day.
Given the bell curve you'll find stupid normalfags in every nation. You can't judge anyone by random plebeians on the street. What's important are the top educated top 10% or so.
The air is pretty nice up here.
It's not relevant in anime but I'd rather go to Amsterdam than anywhere in Germany.
Especially to people browsing /a/ this should be more than obvious given that if the information got out that they had an interest in loli manga or something otherwise deviant (guro, etc.), it could really ruin their careers or social lives (inb4 >careers, >social lives).
No, even we germans know it's bullshit and causes us headaches when we import yet another english word into the language.
But it is how it is and won't change anytime soon.
I have the same question as OP, only regarding Italian. I've started rewatching Wolf's Rain in Italian and plan to get to Elfen Lied after that. Are there any other dubs I should keep an eye out for?
Not really relevant, but for some reason, FLCL seems to me like it would have a killer German dub. No idea why.
Protip: Ressentiments against foreigners are the biggest where the least of them are.
It's nice to have a vServer located in the Netherlands.
>It's not relevant in anime but I'd rather go to Amsterdam than anywhere in Germany.
Munich is probably THE best city in the world if you are friend of the Bierkultur. Damn Munich is awesome.
Now that's bullshit.
Also, foreigners are not the problem.
Amassed immigration of low-life fucks is.
Look at where NPD and other right-wing ("Pro-X") strongholds are. They are always in regions with ~0-10% immigrants and I don't believe that the backwards causation that there are few immigrants because there's lots of NPD guys is true.
So could you tell me about some german fansubs or torrent places?
Nigga pls, Amsterdam is filled with trash from all around the world. It is anything but Dutch.
Also, zu viel Deutsche posts auf meinem board. Geh zuruck nach /int/.
Could you provide a citation?
The last time I've downloaded german-subbed/dubbed anything was elfen lied, many years ago
>doesn't understand NPD wählerstruktur
Is has NOTHING to do with immigrants. More with the high unemployedment rates in Eastern Germany AND people needing scapegoats for their own shortcomings.
Guess what the NPD tells the people? Everything is "des Türkens Schuld". And the uneducated believe that.
This is strangely relevant to my interests. I'm trying to learn the language too, OP. This actaully seems like a decent idea to help me along.
That is mostly due to the East/West split and since the West has suffered heavy indoctrination including yourself.
But you probably haven't seen your own city center getting taken over by Turks.
Those assholes destroyed my home and everything that defined the first 20 years of my life.
You couldn't ride buses anymore. All you heard was Turkish, not a word of German.
The only solution was to move away, I'm more happy now.
a large selection in high quality.
A lot of the old stuff is fine. Naruto is absolut shit in German.
One Piece was fine (at least 10 years ago?), Pokemon, Ranma, Inuyasha and Digimon were fine too.
Having a legitime site notice with clear name and everything. Really? We is the whois protected then?
I'm looking for a GIS from one of the federal agencies, but I haven't found one so far.
I'm sure you could find one from the BAMF, though.
>since the West has suffered heavy indoctrination including yourself.
"Indoctrination", huh? It's always easy to point at others and call them brainwashed.
I bet you are referring to some kind of "government propaganda", "university propaganda" an alia, completely disregarding that it's the parties' task to convince people with arguments of their agenda. Same thing with school and university. What you are trying to scandalize is institutionalized and desired.
>Those assholes destroyed my home and everything that defined the first 20 years of my life.
Yeah, I'm sure they came with burning torches and drove all the un-Turkish out of their homes.
>You couldn't ride buses anymore. All you heard was Turkish, not a word of German.
Boo-fucking-hoo? How does hearing Turkish make you unable to ride busses, besides irrational hatred, of course?
To any native German-speakers, how would you use "kneecap" as a verb in German?
In a sense of shooting someone in the kneecap?
I don't think an equivalent expression exists in German.
Can you paraphrase that question? I don't quite understand what you're asking. What are you trying to express? The action of doing something with one's kneecap?
Ich kniescheibe, Du kniescheibst, Er/Sie/Es kniescheibt
I don't think you even understood what anon said.
Just sarcasm. "kneecap" isn't a verb, but dict.cc says it also means "someone shooting in the kneecap" which is "jemanden in die Kniescheibe schießen" in German.
It's law that every Internet site has an impressum with relevant data such as the site owner, his adress and contact data on the home page. We take Ordnung very seriously, even in the Internet.
Now he means like Akatsuki from Log Horizon uses kneecap
That's english slang. I'm not up to speed with german criminal novel terminology but "die beine brechen" (to break some legs) might work well enough, if you a liberal translation is acceptable.
You can't turn all nouns into verbs, but all verbs into nouns.
Correct me if i'm wrong
Yeah, I know, I'm running a web site on my own. But seriously?
They are providing illegal content, having a whois protected domain, everything is anonymous and fine. And then this.
you are wrong.
>want to learn German (and moonspeak to boot)
>no means of effectively learning either in a timely manner
>no hope of ever even traveling abroad in the foreseeable future
Words cannot adequately express how much I resent my circumstances in life...
depends on the context, there are enough prefixes/suffixes to turn any noun into a verb, but the conditions where that's necessary rarely arise and there usually are more pleasant constructs available.
Why would you want to learn german if you don't even want to travel abroad?
What makes you think I don't want to travel abroad?
It's mainly used in poems I'd say und nur weil man in deiner Gosse nicht so spricht, muss das noch lange nichts heißen.
You mean just kidding? So none of what he said would pass in German?
Yes, this was just a joke.
It wouldn't make any sense.
Google is the only one you can depend on. Search for scholarships for example. Some of them even have a 1 year preparatory language course.
I thought I won't have a chance to travel abroad either, but now I'm in Japan, away from my parent's bullshit, in financial stability for at least 4 more years.
You should watch commies subbed version of girls und panzer.
Because we don't have enough Germans already.
listen to music
read scientific articles
have a pen pal
have Internet acquaintences
...and more in German. You don't have to be there to consume the culture.
>tfw my school advertised an exchange program that paid for classes, living expenses travels expenses and didn't even require knowledge of the language to go to germany and I couldn't even apply because no passport
Couldn't afford it for the almost zero chance of being accepted
>Search for scholarships for example. Some of them even have a 1 year preparatory language course.
I really wish I didn't suck at pursuing this sort of thing. Even if I weren't hopelessly incompetent, scholarships tend to have a bunch of other stuff tacked on that's sure to shoot me down because I've got the attention span of a goldfish regarding things that don't interest me.

>I'm in Japan [...] in financial stability for at least 4 more years.
I jelly like you wouldn't believe. How'd you get there? How fluent are you?
all the big names have been translated. but sure, might be worth it to read in the original.
most of our TV is either terrible or for retirees
good, german-only videogames? those exist?
>read scientific articles
all the important stuff is done in english these days
>have a pen pal
nobody writes letters these days
>have Internet acquaintences
everyone educated can write in english
>good, german-only videogames? those exist?
Yes, Gothic. I very recommend it. One of the few games I liked to play.
>nobody writes letters these days
He can be my pen pal, if he can into GnuPG encryption.
Gothic is also available in English.
Is it? Okay, maybe but it's fanbase is mostly German.
>all the big names have been translated. but >sure, might be worth it to read in the original.
Poetry only in the original language.
And without a doubt it is better to read philosophical texts in their original languages than in translation.
The reasons should be obvious.
>but sure, might be worth it to read in the original.
Reading the originals is a completely different and better experience. Try comparing the English translation of Dante's Inferno and the Italian original. They don't even come close.
Similarly, the translations of Kant and Hegel's works are not close enough, hence philosophy students all over the world had to learn German until a few decades ago. Even today, a proper philosphy professor will understand the basics of German.
Furthermore, there's more than the big shots.
>most of our TV is either terrible or for retirees
There's some movies which tend to be good (e.g.: Das Leben der Anderen), the TV for retirees can actually be very informative and well-produced (e.g.: ARTE, Phoenix, some of the productions from local senders) and German TV dubs Eurocinema - a lot of it and, contrary to what many people say, much better than elsewhere.
>good, german-only vidyas? those exist?
Who ever said something about German-only? But yeah, they exist: German adventure games and simulators. Germany happens to be the country that produces the most adventure games in the world, but hardly anything gets translated, and especially not translated well. There's also great non-German-only games that tend to be written and voiced better in German.
>all the important stuff is done in english these days
"Important", maybe, but even a lot of doctor theses can be inspiring and not all of those are being translated.
Subbed, but not dubbed, I think. The German dub of Gothic is good.
Lots of Polnish fans, too. Gothic is pretty big there. It inspired the Witcher fags.
Nah, it's also dubbed, but they'll never be able to translate beautiful poetic sentences like "volles pfund aufs maul".
>Similarly, the translations of Kant and Hegel's works are not close enough
Granted, I read them in german in the first place and never had the need to read them in english so i cannot judge how good or bad the translations are.
Once i've looked up the translation of a schiller poem and it was a very liberal one to achieve some rhyming in english. So yes. I agree on the point of philosophy and poetry.
>(e.g.: Das Leben der Anderen)
that's the #1 movie on imdb as far as german movies go. citing outliers as examples doesn't make a convincing argument. especially not on an image board consuming japanese tv shows subtitled in english.
>German adventure games
Albion is my favorite. I've replayed it so many times over the years. Good memories...
Ich wünsche dir einen langsamen, qualvollen Tod.
>but even a lot of doctor theses can be inspiring and not all of those are being translated.
in theory, but nobody has time to read most of them. there are so many papers and theses cranked out every day it's mindboggling.
That's only half the problem
>There's another chart like that for indefinite articles
>it was a very liberal one to achieve some rhyming in english
That reminds me, whoever "translated" the Divine Comedy into English should've been drawn and quartered.
Trying to work myself up to German dubs as well but I think I need to first build up a lot more vocab by reading German. Maybe I should go find some German-subbed anime instead.
>read dojin that was translated into german
It's not that hard...
It's a 5 year scholarship of the MEXT (Japanese ministry of education), that has a 1 year prep course and full 4 year undergraduate course.
I applied through my country's Japanese embassy.
I'd say I was already pretty fluent, at least hearing and having conversations. But there are people here who had 0 Japanese knowledge before coming here. They are the 7th-8th class. 1st and 2nd class are the Koreans who speak almost like a native already. (I'm in 4th) For humanities, they require more Japanese, but Nat.sciences are possible without any Japanese.
Don't forget the demonstrative and relative pronouns.
Dieser, Diese, Dieses
Welcher, Welche, welches
and so on
>No, even we germans
>generalizing your shitty opinion
Also, I'll leave this here, just in case:
I envy you so much. I feel like I want to break down.
>fick mich in den arsch
my sides have left me.
