if they are in japanese, english subbed, how long of watching would it take me to pick of the language?

A couple of months then you would say random japanese sentences to your friends to seem cool. That's what my friend does and it drives me crazy.

He's like: *Random japanese sentence*
Me: Ok.. how do you want me to respond to that?.. *sigh*

You can't do it like that.
The onyl way to learn japanese is to speak with native speakers.


Trust me, the only japanese I know from watching animes is "OH SOOOO GOOOOD!!!! *MOAAAAAN*"

In all technicality, that's hentai, not anime. haha.

But yeah, just move to Japan. That'll be the easiest but most expensive way.

I took 4 years of Japanese in high school and it didn't do much for me.

Could someone learn English, having zero knowledge of it, by watching Pokemon? No, obviously not.

You'd need to watch 7.5/6 X pi/R4.

Does that help?

I learned Glaring Dream from Gravitation from watching it so much, but that's probably because I don't have a life..
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

You would need anime that covers every aspect of the japanese language ranging from copula verbs, simple conversations to subject completions.

about 2 mintues, I'm fluent after watching an episode of Pokemon. But I can only talk if a hamster is fighting a bear, anything other than that I'm useless.

None, fool. You can't learn a complicated and completely different language by watching dumbass shows about tentacle rape and cyber punk worlds.
#21
You can't.

The way people talk in anime and manga is completely different from how people in Japan talk in real life.

You're making a very bold assumption that subtitle translations are perfect, despite Japanese ones being notoriously hit and miss, and showing a complete ignorance of the very basics of language. Another language isn't just different words for your words, they literally have a completely separate vocabulary that only loosely relates to what we have.

For instance, either the Japanese or Chinese for hello translates to 'have you had rice today'? And the standard polite reply to 'yes, I have had a rice today' despite their conversations having nothing to do with rice, but that's the closest thing they have to our 'hello'.

did anyone ever used to watch tenchi muyo back when it was on cartoon netowork, I watched it recently and realised how bad it actually was for a 10 year old to watch

TS, I'd watch japanese films with actual people in it like battle royale and deathnote to learn some things
" Did You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away."

"Do they ? That must be why they're such a dominant global power."

Rule number 1 of learning Japanese - don't try to learn it from an anime.
Quote by SteveHouse
Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

The only thing you could possibly 'learn' from that **** would be a few words maybe a sentence or phrase. You won't understand the seniority/respect or whatever differences with, -san,-chan,-kun, etc. etc. learn chinese, it will be more important.

You don't seem to have mastered the English language yet, so...no. You're an idiot.
