Akan! - means 'don't try' - (similar to 'dame' )
Honma?! - means ' truely?' @ 'are you sure?' (similar to 'hontou?')
Omoroi - interesting (similar to 'omoshiroi')

permalink To be honest - half of my Japanese vocab I picked from dramas and animes, the list will be very very long, so I won't post it.
And these are not words like "baka", "aho", "maido" etc. But a lot of very useful like - truth, justice, friendship, traitor, sacrifice etc.

permalink I've learned a lot of things from watching, but I also study books and Japanese websites, so I can't remember which ones I learned from where. However, I'd like to correct a few of the above mistakes.

scary = kowai [when they sat it fast it sounds like "que"...]
thank god = yokatta
no way = sonna [has a few other meanings, also]
everyone = minna
more = motto
really = hountou
let's go = iku ze ["ze" is for emphasis, there is no "se" existing particle.]
taiyou no uta = song OF the sun ["no" particle displays ownage of somthing]
good luck = gambatte
forever = itsmademo, itsumo [along with eien/towa, which lean more towards "eternity"]
water = mizu
yes, niji is rainbow.[edit]Last edit by Naryuii on Saturday 16 Jan, 2010 at 11:42 +9%[/edit][edit]Last edit by Naryuii on Wednesday 13 Jan, 2010 at 22:40 +5.8%[/edit]
