LOL I would...in my dreams. I'm definitely too lazy to learn a new language at this point, so I'll be stuck anticipating for that chapter/episode to be translated in weeks...months...years... :'D

Yeah, no. Waste of energy imo, I could be doing million other things like trying to mix honey with cola and stuff...

Currently learning Swahili, Japanese, Spanish, Chinese, Latin, Hungarian and Sign Language

The goal is to be a linguist

and then to be a ventriloquist so I can have puppets that speak different languages while I talk in sign.

That's not what he asked, but oh well.


I would not learn another language just to be able to read it in the original language or to get "ahead". That seems silly and a bit obsessive.

I do speak 5 languages fluently already and will be attempting japanese classes when they're available around here. So, I might be able to read/watch them in japanese at least.

I'm not a smart man.

But I do want to learn the languages to get the full understanding of what I'm reading and because it helps me feel smart even though I ain't

I wouldn't for that particular reason, but I would if I had an interest in learning that language... Being able to understand a television show or manga would just be an added perk, to me.

It is not just to read manga sooner, there are things that get lost in translation.
