Hello, nice to meet you (Hajimemashite)

Post by Nakagawa Izumi » Mon 03.29.2010 8:08 pm

Hello there people, nice to meet you all! You can call me Izumi or Nakagawa, both are fine. I've been studying Japanese for a while now, but I'm still a beginner. I hope people here can help me studying this interesting language! :D
中川 泉 です. どうぞ よろしく.

Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

I haven't decided yet if it's for the better or not :)

Oh! I must've missed those threads on the topic. Interesting stuff!

Don't sweat, Chikara-san!! I will decide after I have watched the movie '47 Ronin' which coincidentally I have borrowed from the library this week!

Which version have you borrowed?

There is supposedly a new version in the pipeline starring Keanu Reeves.

It's the original Japanese classic, with Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura. It's in Japanese with English subtitles. I came across it by mistake. I was looking for a book, and saw this DVD and borrowed it instead.

I didn't know there was going to be a new version. Have to watch out for that one :)
