It happened backwards to me.
I started learning japanese in High School because my mom won a free class, calling a Radio station.
She didn't really want to take the class, so I took it instead. I stayed. Then the teacher said we should get videos or music in Japanese - and a friend of mine directed me to an anime/comic store. I was hooked.

This was like seven years ago.

I'm not yet learning nihongo but I really want to! But I do not want to learn because of manga (this play a important rule but) I wanna to learn how to speak because I lov eto study languages and I want to understand J-pop while Ilistening to it and not when I read the translations...
I can see it's a language that need lots of dedication.

I wanted to learn mostly because I think the language is beautiful, and I like the culture. Having it does help me with anime and manga, though. Like the other day I watched FFVII:Advent Children, but the subtitles wouldn't load. I learned just how much Japanese I really know (which was surprisingly a lot...).

hehehe yes i did...
it sure is more fun to know the exact meaning of the conversation they have than just reading the subtitle which sometimes is mismatched by accident maybe :)

Well anime did get me into Japanese and stuff, so yes, I do want to learn it because of anime and manga. But I also want to go to Japan one day (I always wanted to) so I have to learn a bit of words ^^

I'm learning japanese right now, but the reason is not anime and manga, it's just that I like the japanese language and culture ^^ I'm a translator, so I work with different languages, I always knew I wanted to learn lots of languages, japanese is just one of them ^^

sugoi pegassuss-chan, perhaps you can drop by my house and tutor me, jk XD
i really want to learn japanese asap so i can go visit my friends there and talk to them without the need of the pocket jap dictionary i have, i'm trying really hard by memorizing terms day by day but i don't think just memorizing words is enough to really learn it fully, i wish my school teaches nihongo :sweat:

well part of my motivation to learn it was because of my love for anime and manga, but the main reason i wanted to learn it is because i am half japanese and i really love japanese art and history.

I'm currently taking night classes at my local community college in order to learn japanese.

Anime and manga are responsible for further immersing me into the culture I was already interesting... and here I am now.

Well, I'm very interesed in learning ninho-go, however I have yet to find a method online/program that I can use. Also, I live in WV, so there is no where here that teaches it. On a more positve side to leaving in WV, (I guess) is that I know most the people who like anime here. All 14 of them.
