Do you learn Japanese because of Anime? Or do you want to just learn it? What make you want to do it?

When I learned a bit of Japanese it was for an easy language credit. Of course, I was watching Anime then and it might have influenced my decision a bit. I think another part of it was wanting to sing (I'm still really crappy at it) JPOP songs.

I definitely learned bits and pieces of the language. At the very least, I know what a few words mean and can decipher meanings of some names. I can read Hiragana and Katakana, but I still can't read Kanji at all. So while I still don't understand the language to the point where I can communicate, I have some knowledge of it.

It would be great to know the language, and I plan to someday. But right now I'm not in any position to commit to learning how to speak and understand Japanese. I've picked up on a few phrases here and there, but nothing deep.

Eh, no.

I learned it for something much more practical.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't but I think you need a legitimate reason to want to learn Japanese. Before I started I had to think about it because it takes about 3 years just to be average in that language and some people don't have the resolve to put up with that. If I was going to learn, it had to be because I wanted to and that it would be beneficial to my future. It's slow going but I'm almost done with my first year.

Yes and No.
I'm learning Japanese for lots of reasons ranging from understanding more about Japanese history and Culture, films, Samurai, food etc. through to, for me at least, the sheer fun of learning other languages.
Anime and manga come as a rather enjoyable part of the package. And are one that I'll be able to use at an earlier stage than say reading Ancient Japanese Samurai legends.
it's a win win situation.
