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).

I'll admit, i love anime, but the reason i want to learn japanese is because i'm in love with how the language sounds, and just about everything else that has to do with it.

Not because of the anime, but I actually like their technology.
It's a beautiful language and I'm researching many ways to learn how.
I want to be able to learn them since most of the things that I visit on the internet are Japanese.

I love the language! Yes, I like anime but I love Japanese not because of anime. I wish I could talk to a Japanese person or travel to Japan! :3

I take Japanese because I love their inventive technology, martial arts, and I just love the sound of the language. Like, so much. Sometimes I just close my eyes and listen to Japanese movies so I can hear the language. I'm also learning Japanese because I like their mythology and legends.

But also because I like anime. eve

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~]
