A hint in Amu's liking?

Here's a nice, long explanation:

-san:
-san is used when you are either unfamiliar, newly acquainted, or highly respesctful of a person. Tada-chan uses -san (or -kun) and the last name of pretty much everyone he talks to, but he's really just being polite.

-kun:
-kun is commonly used with boys, fewer times with girls. Japanese use it with a boy of lower status or of equal status (sometimes even higher status o.O). It's another respectful way of referring to someone, just like with -san, except a little more informal.

-sama:
-sama is used for people whom you highly respect. This honorific is often used with gods, people of extremely high status (like a boss you want to suck up to), or maybe a boy whom you have a huge crush on.

-sensei:
-sensei is used with teachers and professionals (ie: doctor, novelist). So when you address your teacher in Japanese, instead of saying Mr. Nakamura, you say Nakamura-sensei.

-senpai/sempai:
-senpai/sempai is used with your higher ups. So maybe a student who's older than you or a work emlpoyee who has been working at your workplace for a longer period of time than you.

-chan:
-chan is used with pretty much used with both sexes. The honorific can be used on a spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, best friend, childhood friend, close friend, relative, or someone whom you are friendly with.

Honorificless:
If one is referred two without an honorific it can mean many things:
1) The person not using an honorific has absolutely no respect for the person whom they are referring to.
2) The person not using an honorific is extremely friendly with the person whom they are referring to.
3) The person not using an honorific just prefers no to use honorifics. (ie: Ikuto)

Hope that helps. There are more honorifics, but those are just some of the simple ones. There's also: -koi, -chi, -tan, and tons more I can't think of, but I'm not too sure on which occasions those are used.


Very nicely explained ;o impressive better explained than I would have =o

I am an all out amuto fan but I really don't think it means anything other then friendship. The first time Ikuto came to amu's house he just called her amu and i think thats where it came from. -_-"

Yes!
Amu calls Ikuto "Ikuto" and Ikuto calls Amu "Amu"
Teehee~

Look at her eyes softening! This is her reaction after Ikuto says, "I'm a kid too".

Ikuto is only five years older than Amu. He's in high school, not college. That may seem like a lot of years now, but when Amu is twenty and Ikuto is twenty-five, that's nothing.
