It’s over…50 000?! Anime, kanji, and learning Japanese.

Since we’re still on the language topic, let’s talk a bit about my experience learning Japanese. Before meeting Kokoro, my only interactions with the language were through anime and video games. I still vividly remember playing Virtua Fighter 2 as a child and hearing the characters’ Japanese lines. My...

ダンダン VS 日本語

たぶんかぞくのブログは普段、ダンダンが英語、私こころが日本語で書いていますが… 「これじゃあ英語で読む人にはダンダンの考えていること、日本語で読む人にはこころの考えていることしか発信できない!!」 ということで、不定期でインタビューシリーズを取り入れてみることにしました!...

Learning Romanian…in Japan?!

Sleep Time or Work Time?

It’s about three o’clock in the middle of the night. I just started writing this. Yes, seriously. And my wife hates that. I know what you’re going to say, ‘well obviously, DanDan, most wives would hate that’! Well, you probably have a point, and actually this might not have...
