When will Japaneses get their English right?
The way they butcher it amazes me. I assume it has something to do with Japanese and English having fundamentally different rules that make it especially difficult. It makes me wonder what language would be easy for them to learn.
Has you're favorite anime gotten highest praise on a KONOZAMA market?
>mfw /a/ complain that nips to know English when they can't even moon. Let alone most nipps at least try to study English when most Amerifags here barely know any second language.
English is my 3rd language anon, Don't be so bitter.
they can if they try
I, Angelise Ikaruga Mitsurugi, wish to here provide an explanation regarding the altercation which occurred at the bathhouse between myself and Squadron Number One Captain Thalia.
On the occasion of my daily sorties, my performance has been spectacular, and thinking about it now this was more than enough to make Captain Thalia jealous. However, for my part, I knew nothing of the captain's envy and unfounded slandering of me, and I had no idea whatsoever about the captain's mounting day-to-day stress.
Even when the captain came to me at the bathhouse my only thought was that she had come to praise my usual work. Further, even when Captain Thalia came at me with a knife, I though that this was a unique manifestation of the captain's affection and I accepted the challenge without a thought.
I knocked away the captain's knife, and after some bare-handed fighting, we entered into a battle with scrubbing brushes, and I felt that it was actually beating her that would meet her expectations, and so before I knew it, I had won a total victory. As far as this goes, I believe my behavior is as it normally is in my day-to-day life, but I have come to learn through this incident that my being elegant and luxurious causes some people to feel envy.
I am guilty of no wrongdoing or misconduct in this incident, and I myself am not to blame in the slightest, so I can improve nothing, but if it may be said that the mere perfection of my existence begat it, then I do offer some apology.
We're fortunate that we speak the third most spoken language in the world and that it is used as the international language of business. Wouldn't studios basically just use google translate and typeset whatever comes out? Do you think they really give a crap about a bunch of English that most Japanese aren't going to pause to read anyway?
The problem with learning moon isn't actually in learning to speak it. Its learning all that fucking Kanji. I do not wish to expend my energy doing that just to read some manga. Though, I appreciate those who do!
CA had no budget.
Learning to read nip is way easier than learning to hear it or speak it though
Given, knowing some Chinese helps with kanji since there's a decent bit of overlap and knowing radicals can help you guess the meanings of kanji you're unfamiliar with, but learning them comes a lot easier than grammar since it's just rote vocabulary memorisation, whereas words made of hiragana are usually less discrete ideas and are usually used as grammatical structural modifiers rather than just nouns or verbs.
this is probably just copy pasted shit from the internet but they couldve at least found some text that made sense
The only other languages in the same family as Japanese are some of the native languages in the Ryukan islands south of Japan. I assume those would linguistically be the closest and easiest, but nobody cares enough to learn them.
But it's more fun when they copy and paste random stuff from the internet.
That is hilarious
>dedicated square root key
>making fun of nips for not knowing English
They have no use for it. Meanwhile, you spend all day on a Hawaiian basket weaving board, and can't even learn Japanese because "it's too hard".
>mfw baka gaijins making fun of Japaneses for using English even though they can't even read moonrunes
They have a shit-ton of use for it. Whenever their companies deal with any foreign entity they use English. English is the most useful second language in the world by a wide margin. Japanese, on the other hand, is useless unless you're a huge weab.
It takes some serious weabooing to not realize English is the lingua franca of the world as it is today. There's a reason they put all this English in anime in the first place, and not Chinese or Arabic or something.
Not even Anglo, by the way.
>Needing anything else than English, the best language in the world
Get a load of this turboweeb
Do an image search for newhalf and find out.
It's the Japanese version of 'shemale.'
I thought that Chidori lost it
You want to see bad? This aired this year.
Japanese is the second best language in the world, and comes with its own fairly isolated culture.
In a world of increasing globalisation, only Japan really aims to produce single-minded content for single-minded people.
As western media becomes increasingly generic and infantilized, Japan is the only way to go.
are you kidding me?
Japan is not infantilized? Japan NOT producing infantilized content? The country of adult children?
If neoteny was a country, it's name would be Japan?
The country whose greatest cinematic achievement is amusing grown men by showing some guy in a rubber suit?
You don't understand what infantile means.
Japanese entertainment is mainly wish fulfilment, sure. But that's a VERY far cry from the current crop of western media. Look at any popular Hollywood release from the past 5 years. Nothing but flashy explosions and zero substance as every script sticks to the "save the cat" format.
Go back 30 years, and I might have agreed with you. Movies used to at least have tits. Now, everything is rated PG, and nobody bats an eye. Somehow, the idea of seeing a breast or some actual violence that isn't a cut-away is completely out of vogue.
If I have to choose between unrealistic alien headed babies that activate my nutbladder, and yet another children's flick, I'll take the alien babies every fucking time. Western media is an absolute joke of PC, non-threatening flashing lights to keep the masses from rioting in the streets, like the mobile above a baby's cot.

Fucking Ange, man.
When they are run by a competant english translator.
why do jap ATMs have opening and closing times when they don't in the rest of the civilized world?
why don't their houses have central heating, AC, or double insulated windows?
why don't 99% of japanese stores only accept cash payment?
the nips and their barbaric ways shall be forever mysterious to real people
We call that a tick.
Does that mean you only call it that to fuck with us? Or because that's how you were taught because that's how it's been done in your country for a long time?
Why do Playstation games in NA use the X button as accept and O as cancel, but in Japan X is cancel and O is accept? X is a natural negative sign, thus used in negative circumstances. Maybe it has to do with the placement of the buttons.
They were both Japanese speaking English as a second language so it doesn't need to sound proper. The real strange thing is that such a major scene (at least after you know who he's talking to) didn't have any Japanese subs.
Japanese and Chinese share a lot of vocabulary, but the grammar is very different. I'd say the easiest language would be Korean, since Japanese shares as much vocabulary (if not more thanks to Japanese occupation) with Korean as it does with Chinese and the grammar and syntax are fairly similar. When translating from Japanese to Korean you can oftentimes just do a word-for-word translation and have it make sense and be reasonably accurate.
>anime have perfect spanish or french
>same anime has terrible engrish
One is the most common language for business, air/sea traffic, and media, and the other is the language of manlet island.
Don't get me wrong, I'm learning nip because I'm a huge fucking loser, but there's virtually no incentive for the average Westerner to learn Japanese, while learning English can be pretty useful for Japanese people.
Can't believe how long this scene was... she was unalbe to emphasize any words, because she doesn't understand the script.
IIRC magata miki was supposed to have lived her whole life in the states so her english should have been accent-less
still, it was grammatically correct, and sensei spoke about as well as you could expect an educated nip to.
