Re: When to use san, kun, and chan

よくやったね!(ノ^ー^)ノ But it should be noted that '~kun' is becoming more universal, just like the usage of 'boku' and other words that were once considered strictly male. '~kun' now simply denotes a sign of friendship amongst all gender combinations. And it is usually written くん, since 君 is more commonly...

Re: Johnny the Homicidal Maniac

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, it's creepy, it's violent, but it does have a certain kind of twisted humour.

I remember reading them at a comic book store when I was young, It creeped the hell outta me

Re: have you ever . . .

Yeah, "anata wa chinko ga shiisai desu" is best, but really, if were to say that to a Japanese guy, it would come out SO rude and So offensive that I doubt he would see the funny side to it. And I doubt he would ever talk to you again.

I'll try to pop in more often I swear, I wish there were more hours in the day :( I'll trade places with you. I have all the time in the world now that I'm stuck at home without a car and futilely looking for an animation job in a city where there are virtually no animation jobs. Hey, if you want t...

Re: Words, phrases or anything else wanted? Ask here!

It's not a stupid question... There are different dialects in Japan. Students generally learn "standard dialect", which is what you'll find in any textbook, and is generally widespread in Japan. Other dialects change word endings, or may have different common words (like for 'hello' and 'thank you'...

Re: WHat does "E desu" mean?

Well, yes, in a way. degozaru is an older more polite variant of desu. Dattebayo is a bit diferent, you the "da" with is the plain fomr of desu "tte" wich indicates a quote of something that is said "ba" which is a conditional form, and "yo" is en emphasis marker so "kore desu" - "it's this" "kore d...

Re: Get out

I'm gonna go with Dreams on this one It's true the ~て form of a verb can be used as a command, but it's more of a request, as it's normally followed by on of the many word for "please". 死ね would make far more sense. Also, like Dreams wrote, you cant just have 黙れ on it's own and keep going with the s...

Re: WHat does "E desu" mean?

Very simply "e desu" is actually written "ii desu" and means "it's good", "it's alright" and can sometimes mean "thats enough". In fact it has a whole lot of meanings, but I would be here all day explaining them "That it is" would be "sou desu", normally implying that you are agreeing with something...

Annoying pathetic little brother

This more says just "pathetic" but the word "kawaisou" is kind of Japanese buzz word, and it's used quite a bit.

Re: I'm studying abroad in Tokyo this summer...

Japanese summers are unbelievable, the humidity is insane. You will most likely be grabbing a soft drink every half hour. I was not in Tokyo in the summer, but I was around that general area, and yeah, it's pretty hot, although the nights aren't too bad. You don't need to worry too much though, as j...

Probably 皿, which is read "sara' and means "plate" or "dish"
