would be so kawaii
oh my god your not serious are you
Sorry, my pet peeve (or at least one of them) is people who say "kawaii" in a sentence with a straight face.
anime_love_angel said:
Whole Young Fandom is wrong with saying kawaii with a straight face?
Exactly. There's no reason to say "kawaii" when the English language already has the word "cute."
I guess "Kawaii" sounds cuter?
Although "cute" is shorter to say.
And I like dislike hearing it. Great. We're all caught up.
btw, any foreigners who say "hentai" get on any Jananese nerves

You're confused. No country is 'free'

hentai means pervert in English.
porn = pervert?

No idea still.

I thought it's a shame I don't understand what's going on, but it seems noone does.
About what?

midzki's raeg.
saying the hentai country is saying like a sick perverted country.
only tsunderes are allowed using this swearing word (・∀・)

About this "hentai" thing.

Also, why everybody quotes the previous comment?
I knew what "hentai" is.

And what's wrong with quoting the previous comment?
I was making sure someone (whoever) knew who I was replying to so there won't be any confusing mistakes..

Is that so?
a lovely tsundere loli says heantai to me is (;´Д`)ハァハァ
but if a fagly ugly otaku guy says hentai in Japan, he'll got punched in his face.

seriously, this site system adding "hentai" on the names of all explicit files irritates me. but since I'm a Japanese an outsider from this English world, there is no way other than ensure it.. but still (ノ `Д´)ノ ~┻━┻
Haha, I didn't know the Japanese didn't like the word Hentai. Interesting.
Why does the system do that?
Like midzki said, hentai is a pretty bad swearing word. Rather than commonly known meaning of "pervert", it's actually closer to "porn retards". Definitely not a word that keep your hands still when someone said it to you. Ero or 18Strict (age wise) is more preferred
You know what? Nevermind. I'm outta' here.

Nothing important

Nothing wrong in learning...so sorry for saying it again but is there a better word to use than "hentai"? I'd like to know.
"H" (pronounced ecchi in Japanese) derived from the word "H"entai means the same, but doesn't imply sickness (hentai implies sickness)
or just "ero" from English erotic
The error isn't in the word, but in assuming words retain their meaning in different languages. Words often shift meaning when they're borrowed into other languages. (A king lives in a マンション, not a college student, and if you call someone マスター you'll get some very strange looks...)
The fact it's insulting Japanese doesn't changed. At least you shouldn't use this word in front of Japanese.
That's their mistake--they'll have to learn the English usage, since it's only going to become more common...
Whoa my my, how complicated... Thanks for warning us midzki, I sure will never try saying that in front of a Japanese. Maybe he doesn't know that the word got different meaning in other language and take it for bad... Heh... Better not risk anyways.
(H as ecchi? Never thought of that too, sounds so clear now!)

Peto seems to know Japanese very well.

How far learned, there're still words arousing nausea in gut-level. they won't fade away unless the life ends.
Shifts meaning in other languages.
Like "fag" to "cigarettes".

Not in front of Japanese.
Alright.
Better for me to use an alternate like said above: "ecchi" / "ero".

A sick feeling - Never knew "H*****" was like that against Japanese.
I don't think it's difficult to understand different meanings of words.

(I've thought about killing off the hentai autotag, just because it's not likely to attract anyone that needs attracting...)
Neither did I AZD, neither did I.

Most probably. Is it too hard to kill this autotag?
Searching for it doesn't seem to work anyways...
Whatever...
I think English people should learn more about Japanese. As the word by itself express an unusual attitude, I think the "pervert" translation is kind of wrong. I'm sure there is English word that have a strong meaning and are not used quite often. Well that's my opinion as a non-English.
I doubt you'll find much direct translation from language to language.
