I've been interested in learning Japanese for awhile now but before I learned everything I know now from an anime called
Ouran High School Host Club... Unfortunatly in America it was "licensed" which means no more free anime with english sub
titles for Kirti... (I'd have to buy it and I'm broke)
so after spending several months desparing I finaly thought to do the obvious thing...
CHECK THE INTERNET!
Yes it really took me months. But it took me only seconds to find a exelent website, and so I've decided to share the
beauty of the Japanese language to anybody on Kupika who botherd looking at this page!
here ya go!
I did my best to make it like the origanal format, so as you might imagine there is a large space between the English
term and the Japanese one.
