    It doesn't sound very well to make a book with japanese greetings when you don't know them. Get a hold of japanese by searching it on google.

    Awsome Krozar. Added to bookmarks.

    Generally true but not strictly.

    Irasshai(mase) can be used whenever someone enters somewhere (irasshaimase<->arigatougozaimashita is a must in any store/business/formality) whether it be store or home.

    Youkoso is greeting/thanking the person for coming.

    Agatte(kudasai) can be also used to ask someone to come in.

    ...or just use all three:

    Irasshai. Youkoso ___ he, agattekudasai.
    Youkoso, ___ ni irasshaimase. Douzo agattekudasai.
    ...

    Can someone romanize and translate this for me? I tried to match characters to the chart that Mossarelli posted on the page before, but I only got a "to" out of it.

    棘 とげ
    The funny thing is, it says "toge" first in kanji and then the exact same thing in kana.
    Toge, toge is your romaji translation.

    Definiton:
    棘 とげ (n) thorn; splinter; spine; biting words; (P)

    Thank you so much! It makes sense because the doujin cover has thorns. I didn't see the "ge" character on the table you posted earlier. Maybe I'm missing something or the table isn't complete?

    That's because it's a softed particle that is used with a tenten.

    か が
    ka ga
    さ ざ
    sa za
    た だ
    ta da
    は ば ぱ
    ha ba pa

    It's not easy when the table doesn't cover this kind of characters.

    Back again with some help. XD

    On the first one (the one with the vertical orientation), I could only make out a "chi" and "no"

    気持ちの行方
    The sensation's wherabouts.

    冷たい炎
    Chilly flame.

    But I guess the kanji for cold is a different from one in the image, I couldn't find any other better comparison.

    The word suki in japanese (好き) is a verb in a noun state that can compair to what we call "likeing, fond".
    By adding 大 you add the word "very", as in translation becomes "love" or "like you very much".
    In English we can say "I like this thing" but in Japanese it sounds more like "For me, this things is in my interests of likeing."

    僕は君が大好きだ!
    Boku wa kimi ga daisuki da!
    For me, you are liked very much!
    I love you!

    Not to talk about "好きでいる".

    I see this thread is very active as always.
    I have a request from you mighty Japanese otakus.

    All uses of と.

    I know と can be used as quotation along side with って and て.
    僕の父は「水が暑い」と言った。
    And you can use it instead of the -たら form to make conditional.
    前に行くと 東京がある。
    I know you can use it as with, and.
    僕と母は寿司とラーメンを食べた。

    But there is a use when used with adjectives and and another use I heard during my marathons.
    速く食べないと
    Does this translate to: If I don't eat fast

    I can't remember any use with と with adjectives, but I'm sure you've probably heard it like that too.

    If someone could get me some update on this, I'd be happy.

    And Tae Kim didn't answer my question this time.
