god japanese is beautiful
«< 141 reblogs. that is DISGUSTING and DESPICABLE. weeaboo on parade
I don’t know why it pisses me off when when I saw this comment saying “god japanese is beautiful”. maybe it’s because they’re not very far along in the language or they’re just saying it even though whatever japanese they’re raving as beautiful isn’t special. I mean everyone has the right to find whatever they like as beautiful or whatever but I feel like this person doesn’t know much japanese, goes crazy over this cheesy line from an anime or a drama and that goes on to say “god japanese is beautiful” which sounds so dramatic and forced and i’m pretty sure the person doesn’t mean it or if they actually mean it then they’ll realize how dumb they look for saying that in the future when they do get good at japanese or when they encounter MORE japanese. but I feel like people who write/say this crap won’t get good at japanese EVER. It just screams and weeaboo and weeaboo fail at life. This kind of crap just screams weaboo. it almost sounds like they imply that english is not special by saying that.
there are times I’m like wow japanese sounds so beautiful or it can be so beautiful. It wasn’t the time when I started learning japanese and learned the sentence aishiteru or zutto soba ni iru or boku wa gakusei desu or some chessy line in some crappy anime. FOR ME to say wow Japanesse is beautiful I would have to come across some well -written or some japanese stands out from the norm and THERE is SHITTY japanese or UGLY japanese because now-a-days there’s all this crap about the young generation of japanese people not using good japanese or that japanese has incoroporated way too much english or how some incorrect japanese is being used or people can’t use keigo or how their vocabulary has gone down. There are jpanaese people who are really good at using japanese but some peoeple are just a mess. but examples of such INSTANCES where i came across japanese to the point where I went OMG would be
a phenomenal Japanese author who just works that magic. I read a sentence from the book by that author i would just be floored how somebody could form such a sentence that is brilliant. this is because I’ve ALSO read books by Japanese authors who write poorly or write in a way that is very boring or write in such a way that it does not make me want to read on… and to find an author who not only writes in a way that makes me want to keep reading but also makes beautiful sentences or combinatoins of sounds or words or whatever that is beautiful that’s when I feel like saying oh japanese can be so beautiful. I love Literary Japanese sometimes (written japanese in books)… some authors can really really write beautiful japanese.I think wow I could never come up with that but I sure enjoyed reading it. lol.
another example is old Japanese like while I was watching JIN with my japanese subtitles.
I will say THOUGH that i have yet to come across a japnese poem that makes me awed to the point of saying wow japanese is so beautiful because I don’t like reading poems so of course I haven’t found one.
SO THAT is why I think this person is being a DRAMA QUEEN and is acting weeaboo. more like these people who reblogged this. Just irritated at people who don’t know Japanese just going gaga over it ….. or maybe I hate it because this is stereotypical, predictable weeaboo behavior. and sometimes I need surprise, not nastiness like this.
anyways I wanted to mention the book that I was talking about in my little flame. It was もののたはむれby 松浦 寿輝. This person’s writing is hard to describe but I mean that in a good way. Like I said in my tumblr entry, I’ll reiterate I don’t think I’ll ever write like this person. this person just brilliant and has this talent. It’s just very fascinating to see how people their own individuality and someone can write sentences that I cant never write even if you give me a couple years lol.
(omg he’s so goooooood at talking/telling stories…. i loled when he said 俺が空手の黒帯だとして 俺の前で+瓦２枚割られて もきつい )
I’ve read books with beautiful written Japanese as well so it’s not just limited to this author or this book but the writing in this one stood out to me. literature or literary japanese, whatever the correct term, definitely offers a lot as far as beautiful or interesting Japanese is concerned. as much as i love my japanese talk/variety shows, it doesn’t give me what a well-written can give me, and at the same time te book can’t give me what the talk/variety show gives so I enjoy both of them! I was glad to find out that Japanese people felt the same way . FOR ME to say any language is beautiful, beyond the superficial “oh it sounds pretty” or when you say that language sounds angry or like the person is always constipated, it has to be THAT good. for me rather than saying __ language is beautiful, it’s more like oh i heard/read this sentence or string of words or phrase in this language and the sentence is so brilliant and beautiful, it made me realize how beautiful this language can be (like I never really thought of it…). so perhaps my perception/way of thinking of whta makes me say x language is beautiful is one of the reasons why this tumblr entry/people who blogged/weeaboos piss me off. I don’t want to say I’m not easily pleased or I don’t get excited much. I will say that hollywood movies ie movie previews do not excite me. I don’t feel like I want to watch it. lol.
(omg ariyoshi’s so good at acting. this was SO SAD and depressing AND hilarious.)
those feelings completely numbed out and disappeared once I got my japanese immersion on and now I get all excited over japanese/korean people/media/pop culture. my excitement of the quruli album release ( this album ended up being shit though lol) was greater than anyyyyyyy hollywood movie preview I saw that year. another reason is, i feel like people who engage in this kind of crap just will never get good at japanese… they’re too busy weeabooing out…. it’s just. only way to get good at japanese is if you stop being a weeaboo, un-weaaboo yourself lol. if you always think japanese is so special and better than english, that actually sorta puts a wall or a barrier between you and japanese as much as you’d like to think that by doing that you’re respecting japanese even though you’re totally raping japanese when you say words like sempai and kawii in public or on the inernet relentlessly for no reason except to be as japanese as possibarrr. By all means, ajatt works, and it’s better if you’re obsessed with anime/manga than to not give a shit about any japanese stuff, but just the weeaboos are just so loser-y and fail at life.
OMG THIs IS ONE of the reasons I love JApanese talk/variety and wish korean talk/variety could be more like japnaes talk/variety. this is one of the things that geinin do on shows like ame talk and this show where they make a really dead/apathetic expression with their face. it’s so subtle but relaly funny and effective. i really hateeeeeeee the boisterous nature o fkorean/talkvariety .
