    Re: Japanese language learning.

    Cow = ushi/nuushi.

    But when you use it directly with other kanji, it becomes "gyuu". For example, cow's milk is not "ushi-miruku" but "gyuunyuu". And a cow barn is "gyuusha". I think it's because when you talk about cows in other contexts you don't really differentiate the cattle and the heifers, so... yeah.

    Neko is just cat.

    Catgirl is... neko-gaaru? Or neko-gyaru?

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    I thought Catgirl was Neko-mimi? Would Cowgirl be Ushi-mimi? These are all the animal girl races I know...
    1.)Neko-mimi (catgirl)
    2.)Kitsune-mimi (foxgirl)
    3.) Inu-mimi (dog girl)
    4.) Usagi-mimi (bunnygirl)
    Are all of those right Blue_Rebel? 'Cus I think mimi in Japanese means ears. So a Neko-mimi would be a girl or guy with cat ears and a tail.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    well, i just know....

    Kawaii - Japanese for "cute."

    Glomp - Onomatopoeia for the action of hugging or grabbing with excessive enthusiasm

    Senpai - Means teacher or big brother. (I used a online thing to define it a second ago, sorry. I knew the real meaning from Love Hina.)

    Oniisan - Japanese for "older brother."

    Sensei - A Japanese word for "master" or "teacher." It can also be used as a suffix.

    Baka - Japanese for "idiot" or "stupid."

    Here are two sound effects.

    pata pata = flap flap

    suka = whooshy sound. K-san: "the sound of swinging a baseball bat and missing." Togashi frequently uses it for punches missing.


    More words ...

    Ai - Japanese word for "love" though this differs from romantic love.

    Arigato - Japanese for "thank you"

    Bishoujo - Pretty young girl.

    Bishonen - Pretty young man.

    Chibi - Japanese for "small." Often used to refer to deformed characters and various cute thingies.

    Yuri - Basically the same thing as yaoi except it involves lesbian relationships.

    Ureshii - Japanese word used to express happiness.


    Sugoi - Japanese word used to describe something as "cool" or "awesome." Kakkoi is similar but not used for women. Suteki is used for "something wonderful" and "subarashii" is "something wondrous."

    Shogun - Literally means "barbarian-subduing general" (refers to the subjugation of the Ainu in Japan). The shogun possessed the real military and political authority while the emperor was a symbolic leader.

    Shoujo - Girl's manga. Many guys also enjoy shoujo but hate to admit it.

    Shonen - Boy's manga

    chan - Honorific meaning "little," "darling," etc. This is commonly used for cute animals and small children. It also can be used for romantic partneres and female friends.

    Daijoubu - Japanese for "I'm okay."

    Doujinshi - Japanese for fan comic/magazine. Commonly misunderstood to be perverted stuff but that's not true.

    Ecchi - Used to describe anime/manga that have sexual material that isn't pornographic.

    Hai - Japanese for "yes."

    Hentai - Both "ecchi" and "hentai" mean "perverted" but the word is used in this case to refer to pornographic anime.

    Hime - Japanese for "princess."

    Itai - Japanese word used to express pain. Literally means "it hurts."Also the name of a medical condition caused by industrial pollution.

    Kaiju - Japanese for "monster." Think Godzilla.

    Akuma - Japanese word referring to Satan's equivalent.

    Hakama - Really big pants worn by guys and Shinto priestesses.

    Hara-kiri - Ritual disembowelment. Not fun.

    Seppuku - Suicide, yet honorable while hara-kiri has negative connotations.
