permalink All of the above, it makes it easier to get some jokes of anime and manga that get lost in translation. Also it would be helpful once I can afford to travel there n_n

permalink Well I always wanted to learn Japanese - I had a friend, half-Japanese so he's to blame for my love for their culture (old and present), their country and their language.

permalink Well, I might want to move to Japan someday and have a job there, so knowing the language isn't really an option, more like a requirement.

Also, it's fun learning new languages. It feels like such a major achievement when you understand a bit more than you did before :)

permalink I love the language!! it is a really beautiful one, and I like the kanji :p (maybe not to learn, but they ought fancy :p ) it's a very rythmic language and they have some really beautiful words and expressions. It has different kinds of registers, like teenage language, very respectful language, female speech, male speech, ... I find it really intriguing :D hope one day I'll be fluent!! :D

permalink Hmm, at first because I liked to see the difference in the languages. Anime and manga brought me to curiosity (what are these balls of rice I am seeing...and why are they triangles! Is that a house! They're eating on the floor!?). Then, I was presented a challenge of verbs, indirectness, and politeness.

After all that, I've realized that a second language can only bring me to more opportunities and to thousands of new people. Some of my best friends are in Japanese, and being able to express myself in not only English, but Japanese as well, had made our friendship stronger...

[i]Why miss out on a chance to be greater than one country? It has opened so many doors for me... I'm indebted to Japanese now.[/i] xD cheeessey.

permalink hmm...
right now its not really a want, since im studying Japanese at the moment...

I am learning Japanese mainly because i want to understand their music,
which leads me to watching anime and drama, which also leads to me reading manga.

then after being exposed to different things about Japan through anime and etc. (whether its true or not) I wanted to take a vacation there... but always lack the will to actually save up and go.

after taking a class, I was then involved with my university's language program, which introduced me to some りゅうがくせい (International Students) from Japan, then i made a few friends.

which brings me to today, ME wanting to improve and go there in the near future...

permalink Hmm, I like the culture, I hate waiting for anime/manga/show translations (especially the ones that nobody ever translates in the end), I want to live there for even just a short period of time sometime in the future, and I love learning new languages! (^ ^) That and sometimes in the future, I want to help translate videos people love, but never get subs for [like AAA videos?]; because, I know how it feels to not ever have subs (>o<)
