What exactly is too easy about it? basic kanji. reading and writing of 80 different ones. stroke and count orders of each kanji. If you know the basic first grade kanji fairly well you should be able to pass it. level 1 is the hardest one. Here's a video of me passing level 10. http://www.youtube.c...

I can sub in Japanese but for me it's just a waste of time because of understanding the story line and learning "new" slangs and words. Some guy on youtube asked me to sub Full Metal Alchemist season 3. I told him the reason why I wouldn't do it. It's because I hate watching anime and I'd have to wa...
