So, I was wondering, why isn't anyone making subs, which would help people with passive lerning.

I mean something like translating Japanese into the same word order in English.

I think this would be really helpful for people which are interested in learning not just actively but also passively.

Coz most people don't give a shit about talking ching chong they wanna watch cartoons god dammit.
>>
That would be an annoying as hell way to watch anime.

Maybe if it was done with just short clips solely for the purpose of learning. To learn from it you'd have to be concentrating on it. I don't think it would work passively.
>>
Because people that want to learn should do so themselves.
>I mean something like translating Japanese into the same word order in English.
Ahahaha.
>>
What do you mean? Something like あなたたちはたべています would turn into "you group is eating they are"?

Sorry for my bad Japanese I am from the sun

I've passively learned to understand Japanese by reading visual novels. I can watch most raw anime without problem now. I can't speak very well though.
>>
If you want to learn japanese, go learn japanese.
And basically >>102187639
>>
>>102187584

Get a japanese dictionary, learn your kana, and watch untranslated childrens anime like chi's sweet home tranlsating it for yourself.
>>
There's no easy way to learn Japanese. If you have the attitude that you can hack it by somehow convincing somebody to scramble the word order of subs, you won't survive.
>>
the real question should be why don't we pay to commission professionals and respected veteran fansubbers to do subs instead of relying on a dying hobby
>>
>>102187867
You must have spent a looooot of time reading VNs.
>>
>>102187867
Do visual novels have helpful katakana ? It's too annoying searching for every little kanji I can't read but I can have a global understanding of what's being said when those are here.
>>
>>102188078
You mean furigana, right?
>>
>>102188096
Yes that, sorry.
>>
>>102187584
I think a better way is to have Jap subs with furigana, you can then see the character and the pronunciation and eventually find out the meaning of the word. This would probably be a more effective way of learning, since eventually, the sentence structure would come naturally as you become more proficient.
>>
>>102188189
That would be better. It'd be like reading manga with sound.

>>102188272
Just fucking study the language if you want to learn it. Watching raws would be more beneficial than your contrived bullshit.
>>
>>102188272
Might as well just Google translate it.
>>
Why do you want to learn Japanese? If it's just so you can watch raws it seems like a waste of time.
>>
>>102188272
Is this the beginning of F/SN?
>>
>>102187584
Your grammar and sentence structure is atrocious. Kill yourself, 3rd world Latin American scum.
>>
>>102188336
why would i want to study some shitty moon ruin language when i already know English now stop being silly you baka chan sama rama faggot san
>>
>>102188501
At a certain point, studying any language becomes rewarding in its own right.

Learning English just to play games and talk with idiots was complete waste of time too.

I was responding to the OP, retard.
>>
>>102188642
But there are more English speaking idiots that Japanese speaking idiots to talk to and there's almost certainly more translation of shitty games from Japanese into English than into whatever half dead language you use in meatspace.
English is also likely closer to the aforementioned language than Japanese so you work out at wasting your time a lot less than turboweebs.
>>
>>102188642
I learnt english by forcing myself to read the 5th Harry Potter book because I couldn't wait for the translation in my native language that would only be released six months later. Guess I should do the same with japanese I hope I can find some light/visual novels with furiganas.

>>102188814
Underage cancer pls go back to the third world toilet bowl you crawled out of. I'd kill myself if I wasn't born a glorious American.

>America

implying America isn't worth than any third world country
>>
>>102188769
>there are more English speaking idiots
This was supposed to be positive trait?
Anyway there's lots of stuff that never gets translated or you have to wait years for it. In meanwhile you could just learn the language if you have some extra time to spend.
>>
>>102188501
Long ago I suddenly decided to learn Japanese without a second thought because I found out Fullmetal Alchemist was originally in Japanese.
Fast forward to now and it turns out it wasn't a waste of time at all because being good at Japanese opens up a lot of doors in the real world.
>>
>>102189087
>This was supposed to be positive trait?
Yes. You get more idiots to talk to than if you learned Japanese.

>>102188814
I'm impressed. And if I remember correctly, Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu had furigana.
>>
>>102189119
I guess that's why Japanese threads about everything are almost always more active.

Go back to your smelly ranch you filthy redneck. Keep defending and taking for yourself the concept of freedom and human's rights as if you created them even though it was my country that first put them in a legal text and spread them everywhere.
>underage cancer
Well duh Harry Potter 5 was released 10 years ago.
