Why is the Japanese in Anime so Difficult to Understand — 2 Comments

  1. I might add that while anime is an amazing learning tool, from experience I’ve found it’s better not to strictly rely on it for immersion and instead use other media in conjunction with it for balance. Besides music, I generally only listen to anime and drama cds, and while my comprehension of spoken Japanese and knowledge of grammar and vocabulary has gone up significantly, I’ve noticed a downside– when I think something in Japanese or go to say something in Japanese, the rude or tough masculine-sounding language I’ve learned from anime often to tries to come out. As a non-confrontational female, saying stuff like 問題じゃねぇ or おめーら、何なんだよ、これって is not how I want to talk to most people.
