Terms I have learned. I willingly accept any form of RAGE thrown at me, because Japanese is a hard language.

Kyojin - may refer to 'giant' or 'giant god'
Teitoku - rough translation: Admiral
Junshou - rough translation: either Commodore or Admiral
Densetsu - Legend/Legendary
Ginga - 'Galaxy'
Rengou - may refer to an alliance
Teikoku - may refer to an empire
Keikaku - 'Plan'
Chikyu - most often refers to planet Earth
Ningen - 'Human'
Senkan - 'Warship'
Teki - may refer to the enemy
Dai - 'Great'
Chikara - 'Power'
bakana - could mean 'impossible', 'preposterous', or any other adjective along those lines
Totsugeki - could mean 'Charge!' or a similar utterance
Teiou - 'Emperor'


There are many others I've learned, but I'll leave them for some other time. I'd rather be a translator than a speaker.
