It isn't difficult, no. But it takes a lot of time to learn a language to the point where you can watch shows without subtitles.
And you won't be able to learn it with just watching anime. You need to practice grammar and vocabulary (and perhaps writing) as well, which requires quite a bit of discipline to do properly if you don't actually follow a course.
I aim to get on JLPT 2 level next year, which should be possible since I tend to spend about 30min to 1 hour on studying Japanese each day.
Agree'd I was learning Japanese my Sophmore year, watching anime and studying grammar was helpful!
Been watching for over 5 years still can't speak a like of Japanese :3, I'm a visual person anyways. I'd need an actual living human to teach me
Finally someone agrees that the ending of the Usagi Drop was fine.
Everyone is so butthurt that
