Transcription:

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?

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.

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.
>>
>>135659990

>>
>>135660269
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.

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.
