I'm probably murdering the spelling on these, but here goes;

DOSHTA - What's wrong?/ What's the matter?

DAI JO BU - Are you ok?

I tend to like these because depending on your inflection and tone of voice you can be genuinely concerned or a sarcastic asshole.

I also like Bankai for some reason.

Okachimachi. It's the name of the train station near my school when I studied abroad in Japan. It's just really fun to say.

I never said there was anything wrong with LIKING those words as you say but I've seen countless people who claim to know Japanese, online and in reality, but they only know and use those simple and extremely repeated words in anime such as "baka", "kawaii", "desu" "senpai" etc. Examples of such follow.

"Oh my God, look at that cat! It is so kawaii!"
"How could you say something like that? You're such a baka!"
"Hey, did you get a look at our senpai?"

I'm always left thinking.. "Why...? Your comment is 99% English, so why are you substituting one perfectly fine single word for the Japanese translation of said word? Do you think it makes you look as though you can speak Japanese? Are you trying to show off the fact that you WATCH anime and can parrot back simple words?"

I cannot understand why people do this. They should pick one language to get their message across.

I'm thinking people who speak like that are really trolls. Never met a person - whether online or in real life - that spoke using random Japanese words, and was not trolling (or using a meme - ex. senpai meme - which also counts as trolling)

I like how it can be so drawn out... One of my favorite things about the Japanese language is how every syllable/letter is pronounced, including the n's.
