aash-stay-ute = i love you


is that another way to say that? I have always used Aishiteru


the pronunciation is a incorrect, its not aash-stay-ute, but ah-e-she-teh-e-ru

Other ways to say i love you:

Daisuki- love you a lot
suki- love you
aishiteru- love you
i think that's it

しょうがない = shouganai. roughly translates to, "what can you do" or " Whatever". this phrase would be used in a situation where something unfortunate happened, for example you missed an airing of an anime.

ざんねん = zannen. google translate says it means shame. but i use it as" thats too bad " or "that sucks"
