• Do you think Anime can make learning Japanese easier, it has for me (Read Description)?

    First, to clear things up, I completely realize that I CAN'T learn Japanese from anime alone, that's impossible. I also know that the way anime characters talk is vastly different from how real Japanese talk to each other. But, for me, watching tons of anime has gotten my mind really used to the Japanese language subconsciously at least to the point where all the actual studying I do isn't in vain since my brain has already had a huge dose of what I'm trying to teach it. Think of it as sort of a mini-version of how we all learned English when we were little without ever really being taught, just by continuously hearing the language. I have no problem whatsoever pronouncing Japanese words after I combined my brain's conditioning itself to the language through all the anime I've watched with a lot of practice with singing Japanese songs and saying tongue twisters. I couple all the above with true, hardcore studying of the Actual language. I use a combination of ... listening to Japanese talk radio anytime I'm in my room, using grammar books, Tae Kims guide to learning Japanese, flash cards, tons of internet sites, Japanese music w/romaji lyrics, and anything else i can get my hands on. I've been making slow-but-steady progress for the last 3-and-a-half years I've been using this method. It's been paying off big-time! I've been doing all this because I want to go into either' English second language (ESL)' or 'Japanese Manufacturing' when I graduate, so this is just early preparation and cause I LOVE the language. Is there anyone else out there like me? to 'Anime' --- Domo... Nihongo wa totemo tanoshi gengo des-ne. Mainichi renshu suru koto ga hitsuyo da. Ore wa nihongo ga daisuki. Arigato!

  • Why is it nearly all characters in western animation have four fingers instead of the usual five?

    I'm just curious. It's not all characters, characters in decent shows like Scooby-Doo have the normal five, and yet it's more common for animated characters in western animation to have four fingers. Why?? Anime characters don't do this, and yet Western Animation does >-<

    Give me some detailed info about the anime character in your picture and what anime are they from. The one in my picture is Cashmere Fang, or initially in Japanese, Ceusukimi Faso from Kusuka Bunch. Cashmere Fang(Kusuka Bunch) - He is the main antagonist in the Kusuka Bunch series. 17 years old, and a vampire who loves to drink blood, eat dark chocolate, and eat minty refreshers such as peppermints. After killing Posideon, he went to the earth from the Kusuka world. And he started drinking the favorable demon blood spread in humans. Cashmere's favorite quote - ''The day is my enemy, the night is my friend. Blood is my drink, water is my allergy. The moon is my buddy, the sun is a bully. Blood drips warm from humans, the demonic blood is cold. Summer is my warm-blood, winter is my cold blood, blood is cold, just make sure it isn't yours''.

    A while back i watched like 1 episode of an anime and i forgot about it. I really want to watch it but i forget the name. I remember that it was based in a town that is connected to the alien world with 4 totems. The aliens and humans generally get along. But in that town there is a group of aliens with 1 tenage human. They work to keep the town safe from bad aliens. The groups has many powers. 1 can summon up many guns and fire them. Another has a radar on her head. I cant really remember the rest but it seemed like 1 might have been a princess of some sort or at least very important. It also seemed like the human was special. If you can, please answer. It was a while back so if you have anything please right. Thanks in advance!!! Thanks for the answer

    In my opinion: For Bruce Wayne: 1. Michael Keaton and George Clooney (a tie): Keaton knew how to play the character and made it his own by referring to the comics and he was goofy enough to not suspect him as being a crime fighting superhero, but also had a small amount of sex appeal to keep you interested. It might be a shocking pick but I honestly saw Clooney did the same as Bruce Wayne despite he potrayed the character in a bad movie Overall performances (both for Keaton and Clooney): 9/10 3. Christian Bale: He did the brooding well and he could easily transformed from a rich kid into a rogue Overall performances: 8.5/10 4. Val Kilmer: He might have the looked, but he's just not Bruce Wayne Overall performances: 5.5/10 For Batman: 1. Michael Keaton: Again for me, he played the best Batman. Tim Burton made the movies very dark and Keaton was able to adjust to that setting very well. He took a Batman to a dark place which is what the Comics all about. Overal performances: 9.5/10 2. Christian Bale: He has the best physique as Batman, but that voice....it was so annoying in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. His best performances as Batman was in Batman Begins Overall performances: 7.5/10 3. Val Kilmer and George Clooney: I did say Clooney is the best Bruce Wayne along with Keaton, but I'll agree with anyone who said he was a bad Batman. The same thing with Val Kilmer Overall performances (both for Kilmer and Clooney): 4/10 I can't rate Adam West, I haven't watched him both as Batman and Bruce Wayne Well that's it. What's your opinion?
