    She's a fangirl who doesn't know Japanese particularly well trying to speak it in a cutesy anime voice.

    A translation:

    "hello everyone, this is maggie
    TWO THOUSAND SEVEN
    finiched
    WOW!!
    How about you guys?
    I want to go
    always always
    I want to go
    JAPAN!
    I'll do my best
    You do your best too
    see you
    byebye"

    *claws out eyes*

    Thank you very much!

    Btw, does she even look Japanese? Or is she just a half Japanese/ half Caucasian girl wanting to go to japan?

    does it matter?

    her Japanese is crap in spite of including the most basic possible sentence structures (which she's slaughtering). She shouldn't be blogging in Japanese reguardless of her ethnicity. It is indeed an insult to serious learners/speakers of Japanese that she can get this much praise for doing such a shoddy job of such incredibly simple grammar.

    She's cute.

    That's all.

    And that's more than enough on the internet (unfortunately).

    Lol, I said the same to my roommate last night who was watching this and I don't even understand Japanese. Probably because of the "tsurara-effect." I told him that she her ratings were probably from her cute face, but she'll probably be ridiculed like crazy by the hardcore people.

    EDIT: hahahaha hey if anyone watches the video check out the comments.

    "she's got big bazookas"

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I think that when you devote 7 years of your life to getting good enough just to speak WITHOUT sounding like an utter idiot: cute, featherhead camgirls eliciting verbal orgasms from fanboys over Japanese learned from 6 months of watching Naruto fansubs just makes you want to go on mass-murder sprees.

    Japanese is HARD.

    Pretty is genetic.

    though i dont know how to speak
    japanese or even how tro writeits language
    i can see where your comming from with this
    becuase why work your ass off if someone with
    no clue on how to pronounce things gets all the
    attention?

    for me i think unless you can actually use the language
    in a conversation and really use the right grammer
    you shouldt even attempt it unless you like looking like
    an idiot
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself

    But I think that if you start utilizing Japanese into your daily sentences, you will get better faster, and eventually speaking japanese will be just as easy as speaking your first language. You're never going to get better if you don't practice, of course..

    She's still young, and will get better over time, imo.
