Mine went like: Samui kawa Something something (+past tense for verb "to fly") Kabuto mushi Translated roughly to: Flew to the other side of the cold river, beetle... or...

Hypothetical crab question.

Let's say you had a pet hermit crab, and you wanted to give em' a japanese sounding name. What's a good one? Is there a japanese word for hermit crab? It would seem so, since there are alot of hermits in animes and such.

Sorry for the random/unusual thread. D:

Anyone here watch Lost or Heros? (Japanese related)

You know those two people in the show Lost that are supposedly Japanese? I think they are just speaking jibberish. I mean, I'm a noob to this and all, but I can't make out a single word at all. At first I thought I was being dumb or it was somehow diff. from the Japanese I normally hear. Or that I w...

Japanese for Dummies

Anyone read this? It doesn't teach any kana or anything, just grammer. Oh, and it has a CD so you can listen to some conversations and stuff.

I'm on chapter 10. xD
