recommended method of posting feedback on pixiv? (13)

1 名前: Skeletor : 2018-07-24 21:22 ID:8zElm82W

What would be the best method for posting feedback on pixiv for non Japanese users? Currently I post the message first in English, then usually break the message into smaller pieces and run those pieces through a translator website like google or excite and then also post the translated chunks.

Japanese Online Idioms (412)

1 名前: Anonymous 2004-11-26 05:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

I would like to know what some of the Japanese phrases mean that are mostly used online, on boards like 2ch, e.g.

There is DQN and (ry, for instance.

What do those mean? Are there other ones I need to know to understand an average online conversation?

Please enlighten me!

This thread refers to another thread, by the way:

Studying Japanese (13)

1 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2021-02-21 14:32 ID:eWK5ros3

How long does it take to learn Japanese? If i study everyday and try to learn everything about the Japanese language for months or even years can i eventually become fluent and speak like a native speaker?

4 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2021-02-26 08:16 ID:27bF7haU


>the hardest part is just memorizing the kanji

absolutely not, the hardest thing is simply dealing with the lack of rational grammatical rules
deduction is useless, everything has to be either memorised or magically guessed
but this is general in any non-latin and non-semitic language

5 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2021-03-15 20:40 ID:hth5NGAQ

Just read more and learn basic vocab, it's really not that hard

>the hardest part is just memorizing the kanji

The fuck are you on about? Kanji is pretty easy.

6 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2021-10-25 05:07 ID:JjfRoive


You don't have a general japanese learning thread? I feel like it belongs more on /language/ than on /nihongo/

7 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2021-11-08 18:32 ID:Heaven

No, you will never be able to sound indistinguishable from a native unless you start learning as a child. You can however become fluent, and be able to do almost anything you want, like reading books or discussing a variety of topics with Japanese people. You'll just have an accent, but who cares?

How do I translate "project" to japanese? Maybe 計画?
I want to make a touhou thread, and call it "touhou計画"

10 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2022-01-06 10:46 ID:Heaven

企画 maybe... keep in mind however, if you put "touhou" and "企画" in the same sentence there is danger that you'll be marked by the employees from next time on; it's a double-edged sword.
I can't recommend it to amateurs.

11 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2022-01-07 15:09 ID:Heaven


Looks like 計画 is "plan", "list of things I should do to make this done", while 企画 is "series of goods design" or "event/social gathering planning", more specific. You could call touhou games and manga "products", so 企画 maybe applies here...

There are actually a 東方企画 and 東方企画目録 tags on pixiv, and they seems to be a bunch of little "lets gather together and draw a bunch of images about this specific thing, like touhou girls in nurse uniform".

12 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2022-11-16 18:19 ID:hn9AEoV2

It's translated to "This is an Attack" (공격전이다, Gonggyeokjeonida), but I think "Aggression Momentum" works better.

I saw some imported Japanese sweets in a shop the other day. It said キャラメル on the pack. Why is it written that way and not カラメル? I looked on G-translate just now and it said both can be used but キャラメル is more frequent. I have a kind of feeling for a possible reason but I can't quite put it into words.

639 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2022-08-28 23:35 ID:Am0p3CcY

The two words actually have subtly different meanings in Japanese. キャラメル is the ready to eat candy, usually containing some kind of milk product and sold in wrappers. カラメル is raw caramelized sugar, usually in a culinary context.

No one seems to know why the words coexist and mean different things. I found some Japanese websites theorizing that キャラメル was derived from the English pronunciation and カラメル from the French spelling, but this doesn't make sense to me because no English speaker pronounces caramel with a "kya" sound.

Changes in affinity from Japan to five major countries

The Japanese are one of the most American-loving people in the world.
Japanese people don't want to get involved with foreigners in games because they can't speak English.

Why does Japan have such high affinity for India? Is it because they made curry?

96 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2022-06-30 23:19 ID:kHuf3pKQ

IIRC, there was a single Indian judge on the judicial panel of the Pacific Theater war crime trials, and he voted for innocence for most of the Japanese defendants and later denounced the whole thing as a sham because azns gotta stick together or something.

Netouyo have been friendly towards Indians ever since, as long as they aren't actually living in Japan and affecting their lives in any genuine way.
