"Jinsei" is the Japanese word for life.

"Kure" wa nan desu ka?

I often hear the word "kure" in Japanese movies, especially in anime. Does anyone know what it mean exactly? In Princess Mononoke Ashitaka says to Hakul: "Koko de matte kure" Even without the "kure" you can guess the general meaning: "Wait here for me." So is "kure" like a personal word related to t...

Tales of Symphonia

Does anyone play the game "Tales of Symphonia", it's an anime RPG and it looks amazing!!! But I'm not a big RPG fan anymore so I'm a little unsure about getting it.
Does anyone know if it is available in Japanese with english subs?

RE: Godzilla, anyone? ^_^;

I havent seen Final Wars yet, isn't it a remake of "Destroy All Monsters"?
The latest one I've seen is "Godzilla 2000".
I would love to watch Gojira in the original Japanese, but every damn Godzilla DVD I know of doesn't have that option!:@

RE: Coke with lemon?

Pepsi is way better than coke.
If I can't get Pepsi max I usually get diet Pepsi/coke instead. Any cola without sugar tastes better, and it's a little healthier for your teeth.

Pepsi wa subarashi yo! :D

Not strictly anime or manga, but does anyone like it? I know it's totally dumb with lame effects and chessy monsters...but thats what appeals to me! It actually kindled my desire to learn Japanese, rather than anime or manga.:D Well, It all started when a wide-eyed 11year boy old saw a trailer reel ...

RE: whats better American Cartoons or Anime?

It's hard to say. I love anime, it's such a unique artform.

But then there's Disney, the Godfather of animation and the inspiration for many anime artists, especially the renowned Hayao Miyazaki.
I like Disney best, but anime comes in close second...^_^

RE: South park anime spoof...

I love the chinpokomon episode! I know that Chinpoko is slang Japanese for penis, so does the 'chin-chin' mean 'pee-pee' or the equivelent?

The beginning of 'Let's fighting love'...

Japanese

Subarashi chin-chin mono
Kintamano kame aru

English

Wonderful penis thing
My balls are hairy

RE: Naze and Doushite...?

Umm...From experience of watching tons of Japanese movies, I'd say that doushite is used when talking directly to someone, eg 'doushiteno?', or 'doushitedesuka?': both mean: what's wrong?', 'what is it?' Whereas 'naze' literaly means 'why'. But I'm probably wrong, just my own personal observation......
