    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.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    I'm glad you find it fun. That'll make the learning process a LOT easier.

    To anyone viewing this thread : don't hesitate to ask questions or practice your Japanese by communicating with the other forumers! That's the way to keep the thread going. And... well, we can't offer help if you don't ask for it.

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    Just a suggestion.

    ~! I would advice to all those who are interested in learning Japanese to learn some verbs and abjectives each day, since they constitute the main frame of a sentance, rather than just learning some set phrases. ~!! Of course, you would then have to learn how to conjugate them as well, but learning plain form verbs would do you good... Then, you can take bunch of nouns and adjectives and make some basic sentances, while learning how to work with the particles.

    Here is a neat site to look for some verbs [including nouns and adjectives]: Dictionary.

    Love me lots, and I will give all some professional Japanese training.
