What are some Japanese words that you learnt by watching anime?
Oh, there are so many words that I learnt to pick up by observing and matching the sounds with the subtitles.
I am a huge fan of One Piece and most of the vocabulary I built up came from watching over 600 episodes of One Piece, some of them again and again.
Now I am at a point where I can watch some episodes and scenes without having to rely on subtitles.
I can understand what is going on simply by the tones and expressions. I will categorize the words and phrases into different parts like common words and expressions, colors, animals, numbers,family, etc. The common words/expressions:- 1.Nani/Nandato - What ? 2.
