I remember one time in school, I was just thinking about that weekend and all of sudden I thought, "このクラスは 心気臭いなんです。"

It freaked me out, but occasionally I'll think or talk in Japanese without translating it.


lol So naturally, then? =P That might be a bit troublesome for me...in order to graduate, I have to learn two years of a foreign language, and my stupid school only has German, French, and Spanish. So I chose Spanish, and at least five times everyday, when the teacher asks a question, I find myself thinking of the word in Japanese instead. XD For example, my teacher was reviewing and asks what the word in Spanish was for 'ten' and I'm like,"Ju....-.- Duh. Hm...wait..." Did it again with the word 'what'. But oh well, as long as I pass the class. =P

You brought it upon yourself. Who chooses Spanish over German and French? :p

Isn't it the easier of the three? :P Plus when I started taking it when I first got into high school, I was mildly interested. So I just went on to Spanish II from there.

What do I need in order to work in Japan? I'll need a job if I go to Temple. Actually, what would I need in order just to go to Japan for college? =P Thanks!

Well congratulations to him. My point was, I've already apologized for my mistake, and he doesn't seem satisfied.


I did you the courtesy of answering your question. Were you not satisfied with the answer? If not, I would be glad to elaborate on any portion where you desire clarification.

Yes, it would xD; I think she might be like 11
No wait..she's my age ._. ah.
Anyway, why do they all want to be anime artists anyway?
.__. I think I did like 2 years ago when I was 13. But I grew out of that and started after looking at things logically.

Anyway, I don't see why there are so many people wanting to go to university in Japan. Perhaps they don't realise that they need to learn japanese first...
I bid them good luck with that..

I guess it sounds cool and animerific. Many people don't realize it would just be a waste of money since they could get a (probably better) education for much cheaper in their home country. THEN go to Japan and be much more successful than if they had gone to a Japanese university.

That, and many don't realize where Japan is on the map. They just know it is anime heaven.

It's anime heaven for rich people. Have you SEEN the prices of anime DVDs in Japan? Before I came here when I was 15, I thought it was going to be the land of cheap anime. 60 bucks for one DVD? 500 for a box set?

Let's just say I stopped watching anime soon after I got here.
