Makes sense. I gather it's quite a problem at some places. Lucky for you it's not just anime you're interested in, eh? ;)

Seriously, it's a great language to learn, as long as you approach it realistically. As long as you're thinking of it as a language to learn, rather than a way of not having to wait for fansubbers, you'll do fine.

Very interesting. I have a few friends who are first year japanese language students, and they tell me about the number of people who are in there because of "anime"... but why do they need to make them more advanced? Just let those students have their fun, natural selection will run its course as they see that knowing a handful of phrases from their favorite shows won't help them pass the class...

yea. the whole anime/ game thing is just a very nice major plus! :)

--offtopic?--i just feel that since a lot of the newer biomedical research is being done over in that side of the world, and a lot of the devices I'll end up using are made there, i want to learn so i could visit seminars or read the journals or whatnot... but anyways...--end offtopic--

I think the idea is they make it more advanced so that only if you're truly commited to learning the language, will you not watch your GPA plunge from A to C. I.E. not like High school Spanish.

Man, I wish they did that at my school. I almost quit Japanese first year on account of people like that. -_- They really do almost all tend to drop out by the end of the first year, but still, sitting through three terms of "Sensei, what does [insert random Dragonball Z or Inu Yasha phrase] mean?" definately makes you start wondering if the pages of your textbook could be used to slit your own wrists...

Apparently I'll ace 4 semesters of Japanese at university... but at least the students don't go there just for anime.

But they tend to annoy me oh yes.

They can, and I assure you, it hurts....one of the most painful ways to try to kill yourself.

Nobody in their right minds shoots for Rei. At, perhaps, but not for. :p

The otaku students rather than the lesson itself, I suspect. ;)

(BTW, do you think you could try not to post several times running? If you want to add something to a post you've already made, please use the edit function.)

Heh heh .. I remember a friend telling me of a lecturer in uni who informed the class of his plans to have lunch at a Japanese restaurant so that the students can practice their newfound knowledge at the waitresses with bewildered/confused faces.
At the end of the announcement, one of the lady students screamed out "Yay! We get to go out for Yum Cha!". This was followed by a few moments of absolute silence, then the entire class roared with laughter.
