I want to learn Japanese... by Crystal-Artist I want to learn Japanese... by Crystal-Artist
People make this assumption a lot and I seriously mean A LOT.
Almost everyone in my Japanese class and Japanese LOVES anime. So it is understandable. I just get tired of people making the assumption that everyone in a Japanese class is weird and wants to learn Japanese because of anime. It's mean. ):<

I like anime yes but I love Japanese Dramas and Movies so much more. XD Ever since I was a little kid I've wanted to travel to Japan because of the technology and the shopping. I also have an interest in teaching English in an Asian country through programs like JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) and EPiK (English Program in Korea).

Actually I like Japanese NOT because of anime but because of their gadgets. I used to have a Japanese to English dictionary. Now I have no idea where it went.
Thank you! I have a love of anime (not as crazyily as i did in my youth but still love it) but that isn't the prime reason I want to learn japanese. I love the culture and just the sound of the language as a whole. (like the way some people like the way french or german sounds) Not to mention I like Japanese music and it would be nice to know what they are saying without the lyrics because you loose things when its translated.. I have never had a chance to watch Japanese dramas but still.

At my first class my teacher said "Ok, so you want to learn because of anime and manga, am I right?" and then I said to him that I wanted study animation in Japan. Now I'm falling in love with a language and want to be a teacher, and the last anime I've seen was some 3 or 6 months ago e_e' [I prefer to read~]

This is so true

I love animes and J-pop, but the reason I wanna learn it is because it seems like an interesting language and I want to go to Japan one day, so I'd like to know what people are saying there!
