Examples of a Japanese Speech (Part Three)

No, I haven't forgotten about this series! The speech this time is concerning the topic of favorite places. It was really hard for me to come up with a favorite place, much less describe it. I ended up picking the place I love the most, this world that we live in!

As usual, I will post both the speech in Hiragana/Kanji/Katakana and Romaji. Towards the end I will include a rough translation of the speech. I hope you all enjoy this series, because it's a way to bring the formal speech of Japanese to my readers. We hear informal speech all the time in anime, manga, and the like, so I think this a nice breath of fresh air. With that in mind, here we go!






Watashi no Suki na Basho

Watashi no suki na basho wa sekai desu. Sekai de takusan hitobito ga imasu. Soushite, takusan hitobito yasashi desu. Watashi wa motto tomodachi ga hoshi node, motto hitobito ni aitai desu. Demo, watashi wa gaikokugo o hanashu no ga jyouzu ni naranakereba ikemasen.

Mata, sekai wa kirei to omoimasu. Tatoeba, okii yama ya, kirei umi ga arimasu. Watashi wa iro iro na basho ni ikitai desu.

Minna-san, sekai wa taisetsu desu ka?

The Place That I Like

The place that I like the most is the world. The world is full of many people, and many of them are nice. I would like to make more friends, but I need to meet more people first. In order to do this, I need to become better at speaking foreign languages.

Also, I think this world is beautiful. We have many beautiful places in nature, such as big mountains and beautiful oceans. I would like to go to many of these places.

Because I like people, and the world is important to me, I'm very interested in the world. 

Everyone, is the world important to you?

So that's pretty much it guys! Hopefully you learned something from seeing this, or enjoyed it. Maybe it was a good way to brush up on your Japanese? Who knows! I just hope to have helped someone in some way or form!

That's all for now! See you all soon!

Black History Month with Anime

Today is the last day of February, one of the shortest months of the year, and one that is filled with two holidays. Since I've already addressed Valentine's Day, I thought I'd take the time to talk a little bit about Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech. If you're familiar with Narut
