While my friends who haven't been spoiled and come from an average...

groink: I don't think she has an accent either, but in the post before mine Rikayla mentioned it ... so I was wondering where does he hear an accent? ^^ But i suppose you're right that it is because of her having to talk/sing in japanese.

I think her voice sounds a lot better in "Taiyou no uta" than in "Stay with me", but she really only has an average voice ... but probably they'll still try to make some more money with more singles.

It is good, but doesn't really touch me ...... at this point while watching 1 Litre of tears I was completely hooked and so sad, while with Taiyou no uta i'm not feeling very much .... maybe it's really true that "life write...

Well, since the japanese are becoming unable to use Kanji maybe in a few years they'll be gone? ;D Almost during every lesson I can see my teacher struggling to remember how to write a word in kanji and she keeps warning us "even I'm forgetting Kanji now, so you better don't even start using a PC" ....

argh, I know that situation very well .... trying to search the vocabulary of a text where you can't even read the kanji because it's a bad copy or printed too small XD But even with a good copy it still takes me hours to look up all the new words of a text that's like 4 pages long .... as thebazel ...

gixo is right when she says that words made of more than one kanji are difficult to pronounce or rather it is difficult to remember all the different pronounciations possible .... even japanese people don't know all the pronounciations (while they can guess the meaning) that's why in anime and drama...

Maybe every language has an easy and a difficult part (except english which is easy in every way XD ), else even native speakers wouldn't be able to learn it ;D It's true that Drama, Anime or Manga helps you a lot with learning ... just as normal books would do the same, works for every language ......

I think if her mother is of french-algerian origin that means her mother's parents maybe were one french and one algerian or it simply means that her mother is french and born in algeria I know a few french people that were born in african countries like marocco or other ancien colonies, but they ha...
