Japanese food

Hi all!

I just realised how little i know about japanese food, i mean, aside from the obvious ones: sushi, yakitori, onigiri, ramen etc... Does anyone know a site, or help me learn some food?

Re: What's your favourite anime?

I only started watching anime recently, well.... as in a year ago, and have only really seen a few... But of those i've seen (just as they come to mind):

Naruto Shippuden
Full Metal Alchemist
Samurai Champloo - so much fun ^_^

and the odd episode from various anime...

Any recommendations?
ありがとう!

Re: Kanji use.

As everyone else seems to have said, Kanji aren't just sounds and a character, they have a meaning attached to that picture. If they didn't have a meaning attached, and they were just sounds and pictographs, then there would be a ot of variation in words, for example: 高校 (high-school), could equally...

Re: か as 'or'

when using か as 'or', it's:

Noun + か + Noun (か etc) + Marker + Verb

where か is only used between the items mentioned, rather than at the end of them like も. i.e.

お兄さんお姉さん来ますか。
お兄さんお姉さんが来ますか。

Hope that makes some sense....

identity crisis

こんにちは皆さん!ニューサイトが大好きですよ!

I was looking over some Kanji the other day and came across the following: 吾、私、僕、俺...I know about 僕と俺、but i don't know about 吾 at all. Can someone please shed some light on this for me?

ありがとうございます!

聞いてくれ。。?

こんにちは、皆さん!

Just a quick question; i was listening to a Japanese song, and i heard the line 聞いてくれ。I was wondering what くれ does? is it like ください at all?

ありがとうございます。

僕? 俺?

I was talking to a friend of mine, and our oppinions of 僕 and 俺 differ somewhat. So, i thought i'd just like that to be clarified...
It's my opinion that:

僕 is (male) informal and
俺 is arrogant-sounding...

Is that about right?

ありがとう皆さん。
