HELLOOO!? someone pls answer my "kanjiru" question?? it's in like every hentai scene that exists


strange, I was pretty sure I answered it. But kanjiru basically means having a feeling or sensing something. like 'I have a bad feeling about this' or 'This good luck charm gives me a good feeling.'

arimasu means existing for inanimate objects. ex: Sashin wo arimasuka? 'do you have the photo?'
de arimasu is used at the end of a sentence like desu, but its more formal than desu. I'm beginning to study formal speech in class, so I can't really say too much about it.

What does "zukkyun", "juushi", and "otogi" mean?? It's freaking me out.
BTW, "zukkyun" and "juushi" came from "Otogi Jushi Akazukin".

i think shoujo is used often as a genre in manga/anime. when you say shoujo anime, it is target audience is for young girls. so basically shoujo means 'young girls'

...while shounen is for young boys.

yaoi is a genre for male homosexuals, while yuri is the counterpart (females)...

bishoujo means beautiful girl, and bishounen means "beautiful" guy.

desu????
can somebody explain what the hell is DESU???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LoL I never thought anyone would ask that desu is a way of affirming what has just been said before adding it to the sentence is also considered as being polite!!
there are many expressions like desuです!!
like De Arimasu!!
