>why you are taking japanese classes anon?
"Because I want to learn Japanese."
Because I want to understand Japanese anime.
Can't you see?
Taking japanese lessons would be more productive than what I do now
y-you wouldn't understand... B-BAKA!!!!
To translate shit for ungrateful and ignorant mongrels like you
I'm considering taking Japanese for my foreign language requirement since I watch and read so much anime and manga. But I'm scared as fuck it might be too hard - I thought French wasn't too hard, but Russian kicked my ass.
So I can play video games before they're released in English.
Because I want to be able to enjoy the wealth of untranslated Japanese media available to me and also expand my cultural horizons.
Why are you taking Spanish classes?
I would, but I live in Delaware, so of course there's no way to take Japanese classes. I try my best to learn because it makes me feel good about myself, I understand anime, and I can read Japanese labels.
Many universities dedicate most of the first semester to learning kana.
Hox pls stay
For same reason that I take Russian classes.
That black woman is right to judge you. You could learn a lot more in a shorter time period studying on your own compared to wasting time on Japanese classes, and without paying for it too.
You cannot learn a language on your own.
Japanese is a 5 credit hour class here. Since Russian was only 4 hour and it went pretty fast I'm scared as fuck to try Japanese.
I love you.
I have the whole internet by my side, I'm never alone.
I've had more motivation to learn Japanese over Spanish, so I learned more on my own then from years of Spanish class. Though, I spend probably 8 hours a day watching anime sometimes, so if I took away the subs I could try very hard to translate it myself.
>learn Japanese so I can translate for /a/
>Japanese is passable now
>everyone is an ungrateful dick, so I'm not translating anything
Translation: my Japanese is terrible and my translations suck and everyone rightly pointing it out is too much for my sore ass to handle
Sure, if you're an idiot. Maybe you can't learn to speak it fluently on your own but who cares about speaking it?
because my waifs is JAPANESE. TRUE STORY.
When will Niggerese become so different from English that it becomes its own language? Will anyone even bother learning it?
I'd learn Wapanese if I could roll my r's worth a fuck.
The only thing I'm good at is foreign languages and I'm moving to glorious Nippon in a few months.
>Why are you taking Irish classes anon?
What do you even do in Irish classes? Starve? Get laughed at by everyone else?
"Well I tried Chinese and it was too hard, so since they share the same alphabet I jumps ship to Japanese haha..."
Nobody suspects a thing...
Farm potatoes and learn to make bombs.
Good for you, man. :) Fuck yeah.
Because I want to know Japanesse not learn it.
Learning moon is suffering
We had to learn them in a week.
Because i need this ;_; and am delusional enough to think japan is actually a better place than my shack in the woods
>Why are you taking chinese classes, anon?
Because I want to be put in charge of the working camps when the yellow monkeys are done conquering us.
My college didn't even have japanese classes. Fuck them.
Same. The only Asian language class mine offers is Chinese.
Nah man the Japanese are going to take over the work man.
Did you hear, man, that the Japanese government spies are putting subliminal messages into anime twhich is causing Americans to wish they were Japanese
>Implying I'm not learning glorious Deutsch
Was für ein Haufen Scheiße.
>taking japanese classes
Because I find it more interesting than Italian.
Because I was born there and plan to return to the place I was born to see it for myself.
Also I want to play imported VN.
My school offers Jap courses, but I'm scared to take it because:
1. I don't want to run into weabs like you guys.
2. I don't want my grandpa (veteran of Iwo Jima) finding out I'm learning the language of the slants.
I like Chinese cartoons, got a problem with that, fagtron? I'll have you know that it's one of the most important mediums of entertainment and it gets better every year. Cute girls doing cute things, you're god damn right I love it. You normies wouldn't understand.
Chinese is so much easier than Japanese www.
If I could only find a decent anki deck for it I could knock it down really quickly.
Your grandpa's going to nuke the shit out of you if you take jap classes, bro.
But now you can watch anime and pretend you are studying. You can justify all that slacking off you did before.
That's pretty mean, I'm not ungrateful.
>living in fear of your grandfather
Claim that you're learning it so that you'll 've easier time to torture Jap PoWs.
>implying that I that study Nip speak
I gave up on learning Japanesea long time ago.
Why waste my time when there are other people ready to waste all of their lives to translate mangoes and animoes and LNs - the LNs quite badly by the way, bakatsuki a shit.
>Watching anime at parent's house
>They come into your room
>What are you doing, son?
>Studying japanese by watching Japanese cartoons, pronunciation and such
>I see, keep it up, boy!
It's fucking perfect, man.
Gramps gonna rough you up if he hears you're getting too friendly with the enemy?
I'd be more afraid of running into nurutufagits than /a/nons.
You mean you were actually planning to use it to speak to people? Fucking weeb.
Or you might spend that time studying instead of ever actually watching, playing, or reading anything.
I feel like there's some lesson for me in here about actually enjoying life instead of preparing to enjoy it.
Irishfag here. This is all true.
We also learn how to get assraped by the British every ten seconds.
Also, can I have some food pls? ;_;
Also, how's IRA doing?
>Also, can I have some food pls? ;_;
Maybe... first I want to hear you talk about how great Northern Ireland is, and how grateful you are that it's part of the UK.
After removing kebab, the next order of business in England is removing potato.
Because I have to take a language class for my BACC. And I'm already fluent in english and french.
Because speaking helps with the learning process. Saying which syllables (or general sounds in normal written languages) go with the appropriate moon runes helps you learn the words more easily.
>reason to be a failure in life
wtv this is /a/ afterall
Because Falcom games
Not him, but you can speak words on your own. It would help to have someone to correct you, but Japanese pronunciation isn't that hard.
Because I want to be able to read Doujinshi
I'm self teaching. I tried taking a class once but it was horrible. Every stereotype you can imagine for western anime fans was there in abundance. I spoke bettter japanese than the teacher did english, and one guy was such a huge weeaboo and know it all that I wanted to surgically remove his vocal cords to ensure no one else ever suffered the way I did.
>actually enjoying life instead of preparing to enjoy it.
That's a good idea
It's alright except it's an animuless wasteland as long as you stay out of Belfast.
>inb4 >buying anime
Japanese culture is overrated.
because I can't be a tsundere loli unless I know japanese.
To go live at Fukushima and become a Japanese citizen.
