Re: i'm leaving/i'll be back

I do not see any problem with いってくる ( other then whether it's more appropriate to use いってきます based on the relationship between the 2 people in the conversation ) http://www.romajidesu.com/dictionary/meaning-of-%E3%81%84%E3%81%A3%E3%81%A6%E3%81%8F%E3%82%8B.html Adding ね at the end seems a bit strange...

Re: Difficulties with "noun" + はしに + "verb" + -ってるんだ

I may not be in the position to correct much of what you translated, but I will give it a look when I have more time, that being said, I was able to find a couple references to that same passage with kanji in place of the はしに for you: これでも精一杯端に寄ってるんだ、文句言うな Does that help at all? I may not be in a po...

Re: Enter: noob >.< (hello)

Katakana is not only FAR FAR easier to learn than kanji, but it's also used very frequently, mostly for "loan words", but as I said there are many. How the character sets are broken up is as follows. Hiragana: used to phonetically spell a word. Furigana ( kana above and beside kanji compounds to sho...

Re: New to Genki

Genki is a bit of an expensive series, especially since it is split into two editions, and then the answer key is also sold separately, so for those you're looking at about $130, then there are the optional workbooks as well. The good news is that now the audio cds are included with the book, which ...

Re: Enter: noob >.< (hello)

There are other more casual greetings that can be used at any time such as よ or おす, but these are just to be used among friends.

Other than that I'm not aware of any formal greetings that are used all day regardless of time, though I will ask a native friend of mine next time we speak.

Basically what I am tryin...

Re: Help: Translation Japanese for Zelda Tatoo

Looks like what they did was use the ciphers on the pronunciation of words, which is why the characters you get do not show up. East 東pronounced ひがし 「 ヒガシ 」 West 西 pronounced にし 「 ニシ 」 North  北 pronounced きた 「 キタ 」 South 南 pronounced みなみ  「 ミナミ 」 Center/middle is usually 中 pronounced なか 「 ナカ 」 as fa...

Re: Enter: noob >.< (hello)

While it seems awkward to use こんにちは instead of おはよう in the morning, I'm not sure if it's technically incorrect, someone else would have to chime in that knows better :p

The translations really are more rough and tell us what time of day it tends to be used rather than literal translations.
