atatakanakatta (past negative conjugation of atatakai (warm)).

Love those tongue twisting conjugations.

I like to many words to pick just one so I will list a bunch a watched an episode on K-ON with no subtitles no help me. Incidentally this is how I am learning Japanese without doing any studying. I had already watched hundreds of hours of anime maybe in the thousands! All in Japanese with English subtitles and my brain had picked up to a limited extent some words in Japanese so I wasn't like a total newborn when I switched the subs off and for basic shows with more basic dialogue I could under stand some on the meaning on what they where saying using context and my limited vocabulary!

I think K-ON is actually one of the best series for this and its still enjoyable to watch. My brain seems to be learning all on its own as I understand more and more as time goes on you really can learn to understand Japanese with anime fuck formal study and memorization!!! Do it the fun and easy way by watching cute girl doing cute things and being as moe and kawaii as they can possibly be!!! And you can do this on crunchyroll to on the web player you can right click and disable the subs!!!

Oh yeah here is my list in kanji may not be correct but what ever should be close enough:
Kawaii
Desu
Des
Moe
Sugoi
Fighto
Don Min
Nandeyanen
Komendasai
Baka
Daisuki

Um, I see romaji, but no kanji

"Des" and "Desu" are the same thing
and I think your "Don Min" is "Gomen, gomen"
and "Komendasai" is "Gomenasai"

I'm not sure what "Nandeyanen" is though...maybe "NANDAYO?!?" but it's just a guess.

nandeyanen is commonly translated as "what the heck?" and often used as the punchline in a 2-person comedy show.
example: person 1 says something ridiculous. person 2 responds by saying "nandeyanen"
of course, it can also be used in real life.

don min -> probably meant "donmai", which is the romanization of the word "don't mind"
used when something bad happened and you shrug it off.

fightto should be romanized as faito

Oh, you mean the "never mind"? It's "Nandemo nai"
And you're right, I didn't think about "donmai" (I kind of went by phonetics)

Thanks!

「素晴らしい」 (subarashii) Depending on intonation it can mean great, marvelous, magnificent, etc. Also, with the appropriate diction it sounds really creepy or sinister.
