Ossu!

Post by sgtkira » Tue 02.16.2010 11:17 pm

Hello everyone. I am here to learn Japanese (you can do that here? :O) so that one day I could translate older Tokusatsu shows, as well as some unsubbed Anime and Dramas. I would also like to visit Japan one day and not be lost and have to say "Hai!" after every pause the person makes while speaking :P

Yes, you can learn Japanese here. There are plenty of lessons. It doesn't hurt to get a text book though and follow some sort of structured approach.

I'm not sure "ossu" is an appropriate greeting for people you don't even know. Is that an anime/manga thing? If you do visit Japan one day I would personally advise against using it unless you are in a doujou. :)
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Yeah I know, sorry. lol. I was trying to pick a greeting I haven't seen, and I didn't see that one on the first page. And I saw it in Sentai (Gekiranger if anyone knows what I'm talking about ^^) And I want to learn a little here before I go off to college and actually take Japanese as my language requirement

There may be a good reason for that :wink:

I don't but I assume it is something related to Power Rangers since you are interested in the Tokusatsu genre.
