Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal

©和月伸宏/集英社・フジテレビ・アニプレックス

76468.81. Impossible1. N1+++2001Action/Battle4---This work is a story of the past of Kenshin Himura, the main character of the super popular series. Therefore, the stage of this work is around 1853 to 1869, which is older than the TV version. This work has a strong element of studying history even for Japanese people. And since many words of this era such as "Edo" and "Gokenin" appear in this work, the level of difficult words is higher than that of working people. Also, since this work is set in this era, the appearance rate of difficult words is very high. The only people who can watch this work without subtitles are those who are quite confident in Japanese (honestly, it is not suitable for learning Japanese). Rather, since this work depicts Japanese culture, politics, and life from 1853 to 1869, it is better to watch it with subtitles to learn about Japanese history and the feeling of life at that time.98867468.8 =117 terms / 4 episodes * 16th grade

724241. Impossible1. N1+++2001Action/Battle2---This work is the story of Kenshin and others after the original. Therefore, the times are more advanced than the TV anime version. Since the characters in this work have regrets in their hearts, there are many scenes where they look back on the past. Contrary to the historical background of this work, they are obsessed with swordsmanship. Therefore, the words that appear are old, and the level of difficult words is higher than that of working people. For example, the words "Katajikenai" and "Tsujigiri" are rarely used in modern Japan. Moreover, this work has a very high appearance rate of difficult words. And some characters have an old-fashioned way of speaking, so they are not suitable for emulation. For example, Seijyuurou Hiko. The stage of this work is around 1868-1912. Japanese culture of this era is a mix of Japanese and Western styles and is interesting. Japanese learners who like Japanese history should enjoy this work with subtitles.8.587.566424 =53 terms / 2 episodes * 16th grade

7358.86. Basic6. N4-N32002Sci-Fi/Fantasy13---Anyway, the first half, the middle stage, and the second half are boring, but it is a work that touches the last 13 episodes. The process by which the angel is saved is carefully drawn. I thought that I would just enjoy the view of the world, and prepared a proper message. The drawings and backgrounds have an old impression, but they can be evaluated as appropriate choices for expressing the world view. The music is nothing special, but the sound effects do a very good job. If you don't watch until the very end, you won't know how good it is, so watch up to the last episode. As for learning Japanese, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that some old-fashioned terms come out, but since there is no difficult language in general, even Learners who understand the basics of Japanese can enjoy watching while using subtitles.8.5777758.8 =63 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

6656.46. Basic6. N4-N32002Slice of life26---This work is a school comedy anime. It depicts Japanese school life, and many of the difficult words that appear are related to school. For example, "Vice Principal". Most of the characters are high school girls, so difficult words are at the high school level, and the appearance rate of difficult words is low. This work is recommended for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese. Except for Ayumu Kasuga, which has a little dialect, the characters speak normally, so there is no problem in emulating or listening. This is an old anime, but it is one of the works that contributed to the establishment of the "Slice of life" genre, so if you have time, you can watch it.776.54.5856.4 =121 terms / 26 episodes * 12th grade
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien8452.86. Basic6. N4-N32003Romance14---This work is a story about the suffering of love. It's an old work, but the intense story that goes through the viewer's heart is wonderful. The leading men and women are in the third year of high school and are preparing to take an examination or get a job. Therefore, many terms related to examinations and employment appear in this work. For example, "落第" (Rakudai, failure) and "内定" (Naitei, unofficial decision). Also, because the main character works part-time at a family restaurant, words about his workplace and work are scattered. For example, "厨房" (Chuubou, kitchen) and "伝票" (Denpyou, slip). Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is high school students, and the difficult word appearance rate is low. Also, the characters in this work are all people who speak normally. Although the drawing and character design are old, it has a very good story and music, so I highly recommend this work toLearners who understand the basics of Japanese.897.58.5952.8 =61 terms / 14 episodes * 12th grade

I don't think that the world setting is Europe, but the conversation is composed of very real Japanese. Because of the work set in the back organization, words and terminology are difficult, and there are many terms in the back society, so only Advanced learners of Japanese can study Japanese with this anime.8.578.565106.8 =115 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

65406. Basic6. N4-N32003Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy26---To be honest, the first half is boring, but the second half will be a full-scale development. The cherry blossoms that fulfill the wishes, the magic, and the memories of childhood, which had been laid down in the first half, are intertwined little by little, creating a dark story. At first glance, it looks like a love-hate drama, but it shows us a group of characters swayed by an unreasonable destiny. You may find the eroge-specific character settings and cheap settings boring, but be patient until the second half. The later the second half, the more interesting the development and sound, the more emotional it becomes. Especially the painful melody of the piano contributes to the psychological description of the character. It's a very old work and the character design is also vintage, but as a good work of the good old days, you should watch this animation as part of your history study. Even for learning Japanese, there are not many difficult words and the level of difficulty of words is not so high because it is a romantic anime on stage at school. An anime suitable for learning Japanese, which is highly recommended for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese.7676.5640 =129 terms / 26 episodes * 8th grade

The name of the motorcycle is Hermesu. The Erumesu is a mysterious motorcycle that speaks words. This work depicts various encounters between Kino and others. Many fictitious city-states appear in this work. People's lives vary from country to country. There are many genres of difficult words that appear in this work. Many idioms, old words, and words about armament and combat also appear. Since the difficult language level of this work is very high, it will be a Japanese learning animation for Advanced learners of Japanese.755.55.56148.8 =120 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

The way the dolls speak is different based on their individuality, and it is necessary to understand the characteristics in order to watch. It's a very old work, but Shinku's quotes are still quite valid today. This work is a must-see masterpiece that reminds us of universal values.101089.59132.8 =99 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

Now, let's get into the main subject. There is no need to explain the story or world view of this work. Police and medical terms appear in each episode, so the level of difficulty in this work is very high. Fortunately, the characters speak in a stable manner. Therefore, if you are a challengable learner of Japanese or above ... No, I can't recommend learning Japanese with this anime. Reason?

The warship and battle animations are masterpieces and don't feel old. You might have heard it because the music used in audio production is famous. Now that KanColle and Azur Lane are all the rage, it would be interesting to look back at a real battleship anime. From the perspective of learning Japanese, as you expected, it is an on-parade of terms related to military terms and weapons and ammunition. In addition, there are many political, strategic and tactical conversations. The names of great people in history and the names of regions often appear. Needless to say, it is an anime with a high level of difficulty in Japanese, which even users have ultimate difficulty understanding.9.579.577248 =321 terms / 26 episodes * 20th grade

The mechanic design, which is a world view, is also a workmanship with high commitment. The drawing ability to express it is perfect. It's a 2004 work, but the mechanic action that moves so far must be evaluated as wonderful. The story and worldview are very similar to some work, but the message it claims is an interesting subject. From the viewpoint of learning Japanese, the number of difficult words is not large for SF mechanical action. One of the reasons is that there are many Katakana terms.7.5598.56100.8 =163 terms / 26 episodes * 16th grade

71100.84. Advanced4. N2-N12004Action/Battle, Sci-Fi/Fantasy26---The story of the first half is a battle with a templated monster, but the battle development of Spoiler in the second half is intensely interesting. The fate that the heroines carry is terrible. Personally I don't like characters. However, the animation and background drawing levels are high. I would like to appreciate that the powerful drawing of the action scene and the design of the unique weapon and equipment mechanic (?) Called Element are unique (of course, considering that this animation is an old work). Sound provides a good source of sound where it's needed, and this can be appreciated. The high-tone female chorus helps to create a serious atmosphere. In the first half, there are a lot of things that make me feel sick, but I want you to wait until the second half. You can see why it was so popular at the time. The reason why the level of difficulty in Japanese is advanced is that there are few terms that are difficult to understand for SF genres. However, Kyoto dialects and characters who speak arrogantly will appear, so consider the character's individuality when practicing listening.8.567.56.57100.8 =216 terms / 26 episodes * 12th grade

The characters are cute and good, but they have a strong lori element. At that time, the world view was centered around a magical girl with a epoch-making setting, and the device's heavy sound effects were very good. The quality of the drawing varies considerably. Since there are not so many coined words and battle terms, intermediate-level players will be able to enjoy this animation in Japanese. However, be careful with Lori.7.5768776.8 =82 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

Is the viewing method wrong? An analysis of Japanese shows that there are some criminal terms and there is no habit. The term is often used in society and news, so it is a difficult one, but I would recommend it to learners planning to live in Japan. You can listen to realistic terms and ways of speaking often used in the real world.856.556190.4 =154 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

972023. Extreme3. N1+2005Drama, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Romance12---A story in which the main character, a puppeteer, meets a heroine while traveling alone, and while overcoming various hardships, they are attracted to each other. Conversations range from general to historical. Unlike its appearance, this anime is very difficult to understand in Japanese. However, since this is a historical masterpiece animation, you should watch it regardless of whether you are studying Japanese or not. There are also a lot of idioms, hospital-related words, religious words, and sci-fi elements that will take a lot of time to understand. The story itself is very difficult, and there are many words that modern Japanese don't usually use. Therefore, it is a very difficult anime for Japanese learners to practice listening. This work may be difficult even for extreme level learners, so I don't recommend learning Japanese with this story.109109.510202 =121 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

Basically, because of the story of the school romantic comedy, the terms that appear are very similar. The way each character speaks is fairly stable for fantasy, and there is no strange character. Although the Japanese level of this anime is intermediate, it is not because there are many fantasy terms, but because there are many phrases and idioms peculiar to Japanese (of course there are many terms related to romance, but that is not bad as a material for learning. )8.5889972 =143 terms / 24 episodes * 12th grade

812222. Ultimate2. N1++2005Action/Battle, Drama24---A classic and hard-working ninja anime. Not for children like Naruto, but for adults. Therefore, there are many erotic and grotesque depictions, and there are many political and historical elements in the development of the story. The characters have unique ninjutsu, but their individuality is clear and the composition of the world view is outstanding. It's an old work, but very polite and well-moving animations and backgrounds that perfectly reproduce the historical background are worth seeing. The OP song is very nice, further enhancing the unique evaluation of this anime. There are few hard-lined ninja animes, so I would like to recommend it to viewers who are bitten by childish works. From a viewpoint of learning Japanese, it goes without saying that the way the characters speak is classic because the historical background is hundreds of years ago. It's not difficult for Japanese who are studying Japanese classics, but it can be ultimately difficult for foreigners. In addition, there are so many historical terms that it is difficult for foreigners who do not know Japanese history. The difficulty level of Japanese is very high, so you should watch this work for the purpose of purely enjoying anime, not as learning Japanese.8.57988222 =266 terms / 24 episodes * 20th grade

Difficult Japanese does not appear frequently throughout this work, and since many of the characters speak in politeness, I will recommend this anime for Japanese beginners to watch as a reference for everyday conversation. Since the main character is a woman, it can be recommended as a teaching material to learn how to speak like Japanese women.8.587.58813.6 =21 terms / 13 episodes * 8th grade

What's more, this work uses Japanese classical and religious ideas to create a mysterious story. The "worm", which is the center of this mysterious story, has an ambiguous shape and existence. Therefore, this work has many religious terms such as "eight million gods," "living gods," and "contraindications." Therefore, the difficult language level of this work is very high. Also, since the characters speak in an old-fashioned way, this work is recommended for Advanced learners of Japanese who are interested in Japanese history.8.5677.57126.4 =204 terms / 26 episodes * 16th grade

The story revolves around battle and everyday life. It's a story I've seen somewhere. In addition, a secret is hidden in the story, and many terms of war and weapons appear. Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is very high, and the difficult word appearance rate is also high.

The view of the world is designed in such a fine detail that it is difficult to understand the concept. And although the view of the world is good, the story is not interesting at all for some reason, it is not interesting for some reason. The movement is not very flashy for the battle action, but the drawing is quite stable ... For learning Japanese, Advanced is used to judge the level of difficulty in Japanese, but there are many work-specific terms, and the world settings surrounding them are complicated and profound, making it difficult to understand the behind-the-scenes of a story.76767120 =178 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

In particular, “薨御" (こうぎょ, death of important person) is a very very difficult word. Also, because there are many battle scenes, there are also many strategic terms such as “staff officer”, “annihilation” and “disturbance”. “linear scar” will be quite difficult. In addition, because there are many adult characters, difficult terms such as “enlightenment” come out. The ultimate is the politics, royalty, and military class, so the honorific level in the public scene is the highest. This is a difficult word level that even Japanese people are a little troubled with. Learning Japanese with this anime is quite difficult.9.59989200 =248 terms / 25 episodes * 20th grade

In addition, there are a lot of technical terms such as difficult conversation of adults, criminal and yakuza. Contrary to the character's appearance, it is very difficult to learn Japanese with this work because it is a super masterpiece anime with a story that is heavy even if the content is heavy.10968.59250 =324 terms / 26 episodes * 20th grade

837.27. Beginner7. N5-N42006Drama, Romance24---Since most of the Japanese used in the whole is mostly general, this anime is very suitable for watching Japanese learning. Let's note that how to talk about some female characters is exaggerated for anime. Japanese used by Minase Nayuki is very correct and becomes a reference for everyday conversation. On the other hand, like Kawasumi Mai, the manner of talking of reticent characters is somewhat difficult for reference to Japanese used in everyday conversation. As for the overall ratio, there are a lot of plain Japanese. The difficult terms occurrence rate is very low: 0.8 terms/episode, and the difficulty level of terms and conversation is also the lowest: 8th grade. Also, difficult words are used only in comedy parts and they do not come out in the main story, so it is easy to grasp the summary of the story. You must pay attention only to the way of female characters talking. However, it is also in the range that does not affect Japanese viewing. I recommend this anime to beginner.7.5810797.2 =20 terms / 24 episodes * 8th grade

However, it goes without saying that watching this anime is essential because it is the starting point for the subsequent Fate series. This is also the reason why the series continues for more than 10 years. The story, the worldview, and the perfection of the character do not go away over the years, and there is a history that is loved all over the world while increasing the number of fans to this day.

Although it is a 2006 work, the world view and story are very well prepared, and it is a story of great completion. The character designs are old, but each has its own unique character composition with its charm. It is set in a different world where magic exists, but surprisingly few terms are related to magic. On the contrary, the terms of royal family, royal palace, and aristocratic societies such as counts and political terms appear frequently. Therefore, since there are human classes, the honorific level used by characters is more difficult than in modern society.

The story is a climb action, with many organizations and people belonging to the underworld. Therefore, this work has a rather cruel depiction in some scenes. Since this work can be said to be a work for adults, the terminology is often metaphorical at the adult level. For example, there are many difficult words used by the Mafia such as "Mikajime" and "Jingi", and the appearance rate of difficult words is high. The wording of the characters is rough and not the words commonly used by Japanese people. Even if your Japanese ability is higher than N1, you don't have to bother learning Japanese with this anime.

Because the animation is set in a fictional world, some terms specific to the work appear. For example, "Undine" is a job to guide tourists on a gondola. However, there are not so many terms specific to the work, so you won't have trouble understanding them. It's a fantasy, but it's mostly a conversation about a situation you hear every day.

If the masterpiece on the front is Clannad, the masterpiece on the back is this anime. However, there are many otaku who do not know this anime. This work is a romantic anime, but it is not a normal story. It is an intense and super-developed romance drama with elements such as love triangles, memory problems, and accidents. Many of the difficult words that appear are used on a daily basis, such as "all night" and "tenosynovitis," and the level of difficult words is about junior high school students, and the appearance rate of difficult words is low. All the characters speak in a normal way and are suitable for emulation and listening. This work is recommended for beginner Japanese learners. But you won't be able to study with this anime.

When characters talk about their true feelings, we can get their feelings that are not able to be communicated in writing. You can listen to, both in a positive and a negative way, a real "Japanese (two-sided)" conversation. This would be a very good training for imagining the characters' feelings, not only from their conversation but also from their facial expressions and behaviors.991010816.8 =30 terms / 22 episodes * 12th grade

N3-N22007Drama, Sci-Fi/Fantasy26---Considering from the present in the 2020s when AR technology is being operated, it is amazing that this animation was already visualized in 2007, more than 10 years ago. The stage of this work is Japan in the near future. "Cyber glasses" are widespread in Japan in the near future. "Cyber glasses" are eyeglass-type wearable computers that use a technology called "Cyber". Pets using "Cyber" are also popular in Japan in the near future. The main character of this work is Yuuko Okonogi, a sixth grader. She belongs to "Cyber Detective" and encounters various incidents. In this work, there are many terms related to "Cyber" and many idioms appear. Therefore, the difficult language level of this work is very high. Intermediate and above Japanese learners will be able to watch without subtitles. However, it is a very interesting work that combines the three elements of suspense, mystery, and S / F at a high level, so it is better to enjoy watching anime purely.1077.57992.8 =150 terms / 26 episodes * 16th grade

At first glance, it seems like suitable for beginners in learning Japanese because there are also many lines at slow speed. However, it is difficult to fully understand by just watching this anime once, such as Konata's geeky talk and Miyuki's long lines. In order to understand and enjoy the contents of the conversation in this anime, it is necessary to have the knowledge related to Japanese subculture. In terms of studying Japanese, this anime is for over basic level learners.7.597.58.5956 =83 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

73725. Intermediate5. N3-N22007Romance12---The main character, Makoto Ito, has various relationships with women, and in the end, it is an animation of a tremendous destruction. As a result, many romantic words and lines appear. However, it is difficult to use the term because it is not a term of pure love, but rather a term of guilt such as cheating or adultery. That's because the story is about love, so even elementary school students are familiar with the term, but Japanese learners are not. And if you don't understand these romantic terms, you don't know how the characters feel or what they say. Therefore, it is necessary to understand these romantic terms, so it can be said that the study in this work is aimed at more than Intermediate people.955.59872 =71 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

There are multiple characters and groups, and many characters make double spy movements, so the work requires viewers to understand. Although it is an anime in a realistic setting, the quality of the character design is exactly guaranteed. Especially, the female characters are pretty and beautiful. The action scene is drawn and the background image of Tokyo, which is the stage, is at a high level. Although it is an old work, it is an anime recommended for high-level otaku who want a complicated story. As for learning Japanese, there are many adult conversations because the genre of this anime depicts the underlying society. Therefore, the honorific level is high and there are many political talks. Learners below the extreme level should watch this anime with subtitles.8.5786.58176 =284 terms / 26 episodes * 16th grade

7284.85. Intermediate5. N3-N22007Drama26---This work is a sports drama in which high school students strive for Koshien, a national baseball tournament. Since the baseball scene of this work develops a psychological warfare for each ball, Japanese learners who like baseball will enjoy it very much. In addition, this work depicts the daily life and psychology of high school students as much as the depiction of baseball. However, it should be noted that the difficult language level is very high. This is because baseball terms and training terms come out. Ren Mihashi, the main character, is characteristic of the character's way of speaking. He is very weak and not confident in himself. Therefore, he speaks in a single word. It is not uncommon for Japanese people who can only speak in this way to be real. As the story progresses, Ren Mihashi's way of speaking changes. It is interesting for Japanese learners to pay attention to that as well. For intermediate and above Japanese learners, this anime will be a good way to learn Japanese.8.567.57784.8 =136 terms / 26 episodes * 16th grade

Therefore, most of the difficult words used in this work are words that are used on a daily basis and words about Japanese events. For example, "green and yellow vegetables," "Hayatochiri," and "Hatsumode." The difficult words in this work are at the junior high school level, and the appearance rate of difficult words is not high. Her eldest daughter, Haruka Minami, speaks polite women's. Japanese learners will listen and emulate her way of speaking. The second daughter, Kana Minami, speaks unisex. This is pretty real, so please emulate it with the understanding that it's a unisex way of speaking. Her third daughter, Chiaki Minami, uses fairly strong words for her second daughter, but polite words for her eldest daughter. If you pay attention only to the way the third daughter speaks, this work can be watched without subtitles even by Learners who understand the basics of Japanese. It's an old work, but it's a surreal comedy that will surely make you laugh.675.57.5863.2 =94 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

As for learning Japanese, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that there are few mechanic terms but many politics and idioms.

This anime belongs to Slice of Life, but since it has many difficult terms, it is recommended for learners with a Japanese level of Intermediate or higher. In addition to all the characters speaking politely, there are also honorifics, everyday words and feminine words, so I would like to recommend this animation to intermediate and higher learners of Japanese.

651084. Advanced4. N2-N12007Romance13---It is a love animation of high school students. The first half is a tedious development, but it is very good that the story falls from the middle stage to the dark side. Recommended for those who like gloomy stories. Therefore, be patient with the boring first half. The drawing is stable and the quality is sufficient. The background images are also stable and can be viewed with confidence. However, the rough sound is noticeable. This is a deduction. In the second half, the painful music that moves the heart is very good, but the production is bad. On the contrary, both OP and ED are very good songs. This is a must listen. Anyway, the sound production is poor, and everything else is not bad. Recommended for those who want to see a slightly darker story. As for learning Japanese, all characters are ordinary speaking styles, and there are not many difficult terms at the student level. It's also called a romantic anime, so if you're an advanced learner, it's quite possible to practice listening in Japanese with this work.6.56776108 =117 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

Therefore, many Japanese daily conversations appear in this work. Terms are often used in everyday conversation such as "New Year holidays" and "housework". The difficult words in this work are at the junior high school level, and the appearance rate of difficult words is not high. However, you need to be careful about how the character speaks. The second person of Chiaki Minami is "Omae". She also uses a fairly strong male language. Therefore, her words are not suitable for emulation. Meanwhile, she speaks polite honorifics to her eldest daughter, Haruka Minami. If you pay attention only to this point, even Learners who understand the basics of Japanese learning can watch this anime without subtitles. It is an anime with a very sharp comedy.6.565.57758.4 =87 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

This is a work of 2007 and the character design is old, but at that time it was predominant. The drawing is old but relatively stable. As for learning Japanese, there are many parodies, and there are so many "peeping" sounds in the parodies' lines that it is almost impossible to hear unless you know the original story. There are a wide variety of terms that seem to be comedy, and the terms related to the material have no sense of unity, so they are not suitable as learning materials. The way the characters speak is relatively real. Many butlers and maids have appeared, and their honorific level is very high, so this is a good learning material. Although the Japanese level is classified as basic, it is not recommended to study Japanese in comedy anime.6656.5757.6 =245 terms / 52 episodes * 12th grade

Male characters speak normally, but female characters use interesting ways of speech so you need to pay attention. Compared to the previous work, this work can hear a lot more realistic and adult conversations. You should listen carefully to the words of the characters based on a delicate and polite story. Needless to say, this anime is a historical masterpiece, so please watch it. The plot and the setting is based on a daily life, so the contents of the conversations are mostly about daily life. Especially conversations between families and teenagers are repeated. This anime nicely portrays the characters' feelings. For example, Tomoya does not think well of his father, so he blurs the conversation when it is about his family. The plot is about the process of graduating high school and getting a job, so it will surely be helpful for your future. Anyway, it is an extraordinary piece of work so this anime is recommended for everyone.10101091013.2 =23 terms / 22 episodes * 12th grade

9450.46. Basic6. N4-N32008Romance12---This work is the second season of "ef: a tale of memories." Not only does it have an excellent story that is more crazy and ugly than its predecessor, but it also has the drawing, direction, music, and sound that fully complement it. Many of the difficult words in this work have a negative image, such as "addict" and "suicide." However, many difficult words themselves are simple words, which are at the junior high school level. Since the characters speak normally, this work is recommended for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese. However, since the story has a darker element than the previous work, it is necessary to understand the meaning behind the words. In both good and bad ways, this anime has a strong story that pierces the viewer's heart, so the Japanese level itself is not high, but it will be difficult to learn Japanese with this work. This work is not well known, but it is a masterpiece anime among the masterpieces of the 2000s, so if you call yourself an otaku, you must watch to it.9.5999.51050.4 =50 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

However, because of the world view of the work, there are many youkai and police-related terms, so if this anime is really suitable for learning Japanese, it is limited to extreme level learners of Japanese.9.588.58.57200 =150 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

You can also enjoy a Japanese typical comedy element, "Boke" and "Tsukkomi", which are roles that form a Japanese Vaudeville duo. I would like the Beginners of the Japanese learners to watch this Anime because there are very few difficult terms as conversations of high school students are central. This Anime mainly consists of daily conversation, so difficult Japanese terms do not occur. It is good to know that the Japanese language used in this Anime is used by general high school students, somewhat deformed into comedy style. Since there is Japanese used in a relationship between friends, this Anime is useful as a learning material for Japanese language used in conversation with close friends.9107.58.579.6 =19 terms / 25 episodes * 12th grade

She is in love with Shinichirou, the main character who lives in the house. This is a platonic romantic anime. Looking only at the analysis results of Japanese difficulty, this work can be recommended for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese. The difficult word level of this work is about junior high school students, and the difficult word appearance rate is not high. However, since there are many vague remarks and unspeakable lines peculiar to Japanese people, it is an animation that requires the ability to read unspoken line spacing. However, this is the same not only in anime but also in real Japan. Beginner to intermediate Japanese learners will find it very effective to study Japanese and Japanese sensibilities with this anime.988.57.5858.4 =94 terms / 13 episodes * 8th grade

The heroine of this work is Horo, the incarnation of a wolf in the wheat. Religious terms such as "nun" and "scripture" appear. Since the main character is a peddler, economic terms such as "business negotiations" and "discount" also appear. This economic term is full-fledged, and there are many terms that even Japanese people find difficult. The difficult word level of this work is also very high. Also, because Horo is a god, the way she speaks is like a god (?) And is unique.

N2-N12008Sci-Fi/Fantasy13---This work is an anime with three elements: fantasy, daily life, and comedy, which are based on traditional Japanese traditions and religious sensibilities, such as "Goshintai" and "Kegare." Therefore, the level of difficult words is about high school students, but the appearance rate of difficult words is high because terms of various genres appear. The main character, Jin Mikuriya, speaks normally and is suitable for emulation for male learners of Japanese. The heroine speaks arrogantly and high-flying. The reason is that she is a god. However, Japanese gods do not always speak this way (probably). And since she has a different personality depending on the scene, the settings and characters are very difficult for Japanese learners to understand. Therefore, I do not recommend learning Japanese with this work. However, although it is a minor work, the degree of completion of the work is good, so please watch it for the purpose of enjoying anime with subtitles.7.578.567150 =162 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

You may think that it is not difficult to listen to Japanese because the content of the conversation is so young, but in fact, it is not just such simple Japanese. Because laughter is surreal, the terms used are peculiar. Also, you will rarely see elementary school life in Japan. Therefore, it is a good work to know the culture such as a satchel for schoolchildren, a menu for school lunch in Japan, a candy store, and an umbrella. You can learn a little bit with the short story structure, so even people at elementary level can understand well. It is also recommended for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese who aims to step up.765.57.5744 =71 terms / 13 episodes * 8th grade

In particular, Koizumi's honorific is not at the student level. Kyon's dialogue, which accounts for half of the conversation, is also very varied and difficult to say. As for Nagato and Mikuru, it is difficult for the Japanese to understand because the content they speak is too difficult. Fortunately, the number of difficult words is not very high.

Among them, the "A Certain Scientific" series has a strong dark fantasy element and is very popular. The stage of this work is a town where all students are conducting psychic development experiments. The main character, Mikoto Misaka, has a higher level of supernatural powers. She uses her supernatural powers to solve various incidents that occur in the town. In this work, original words, criminal terms such as "bomber demon" and "discovery" and police terms are often used. In addition, some people use high-level honorifics, and there are many proverbs and idioms. Therefore, the difficult language level of this work is extremely high. While Mikoto Misaka speaks realistically as a junior high school student, Kuroko Shirai speaks a young lady and uses extremely high levels of honorifics. Needless to say, the Japanese level of this work is Extreme. Although it is not highly evaluated overseas, it is one of my favorite works, so I highly recommend it to people who like dark fantasy.910108.58190 =228 terms / 24 episodes * 20th grade

Since there are many natural tones, it becomes a reference as a way of talking when talking with girls even in a real daily scene. As their conversation includes plenty of Japanese vocabulary frequently used, even if you are a male, watching this anime is significant from the viewpoint of listening.

Besides the conversation between high school students, conversations with youkai who speaks in a bit old-fashioned way also appear. Please be aware that it is a bit far away from the point of learning Japanese in general because Japanese terms used in scenes related to youkai are often old. Terms related to youkai are also professional and old-fashioned. So you need to acquire preliminary knowledge in order to understand them. I think these words don't appear in your regular Japanese learning, but it is a good teaching material for you to aim for advanced level from intermediate.8.576.57786.4 =70 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

Can be used to listen to real conversations of teenagers and adults, so it is effective for learning Japanese. Generally, the conversations are between a junior high school student and a primary school pupil or with Mari, who tries to lower her language level, so it is easy to understand. Since the theme is a disaster, some specific terms come out, but no technical terminology appear. A variety of conversations can be heard, but it almost never affects the plot.10676.5628 =38 terms / 11 episodes * 8th grade

7087.65. Intermediate5. N3-N22009Drama, Romance26---It is a rare love anime with the theme of "Flirt". The view of the world and the story are designed to be extremely realistic, and the work is at a high level like a drama rather than an animation. The 13th episode in the first half may be boring, but from the middle stage to the latter half it becomes interesting. For the anime of the 2009's, the drawing is very delicate and delicate, and expresses the feelings of each character. Especially, the performance output that expresses emotions that girls can't express in terms of facial expressions and gestures is a gift at this drawing level. In the scene where you want to make an impression, there is a soft depiction with a pencil touch, and you can get a glimpse of the high performance output. Anyway, I would like to commend you for expressing the subtleties of delicate emotions with careful animation. Also, OP songs and inserted songs are masterpieces, and although they are minor titles, they have good music. As for learning Japanese, I would like to evaluate the ability to listen to conversation in an extremely realistic tone. It is an animation that can be fully watched without subtitles by intermediate level learners of Japanese.7.5687.5687.6 =188 terms / 26 episodes * 12th grade

Also, since the story itself is more difficult than the difficulty of the terminology, it is quite difficult to watch as learning Japanese.

The characters have no moe and are usually cute. It is also good that there are negative insides. Erotic cute. The quality of the drawing is high, and the quality is high that I can't think of in 2010. Camera work is doing a good job. The sound is quite good, the directing music is good, the insertion song of viola and the directing of the piano are good. There are many erotic effects, which are also realistic eroticism. As for learning Japanese, since the level of difficult words is not high and the frequency of difficult words is not high, even Learners who understand the basics of Japanese can fully listen without subtitles. However, since there are many erotic scenes, whether you can concentrate on learning Japanese depends on your seriousness. Lol998.58949.2 =49 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

The main character is involved in various incidents by witnessing the "headless rider". In this work, various people such as people in the dark society, thugs, high school students and dark doctors appear. Since various characters appear, the range of difficult words in this work is wide. There is a wide variety of terminology such as school terminology, chimpira terminology, medical terminology, and occult terminology. Therefore, the difficult language level of this work is Advanced. Since the story is complicated, I suggest that you forget about learning Japanese and enjoy it purely as an anime work.9.597.588108.8 =163 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

However, most of the daily conversations are based on student life, but Japanese-specific phrases and idioms frequently appear. Although it may be difficult for students to use enough, this is a good content to learn. There are surprisingly few terms related to the story, but it should be noted that the latter half of the story is difficult to develop. From the perspective of learning Japanese, students and youth speak the majority of the lines, and it is fortunate for Japanese learners that honorifics and slang do not appear. However, since the terms that appear are diverse from military relations to love, gags, etc., I will tell you again that it is an anime suitable for Advanced learners of Japanese.771098150.4 =121 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

822801. Impossible1. N1+++2010Slice of life, Sci-Fi/Fantasy12---This work uses a lot of military language. There are also military terms and strategic terms. Also, Japanese idioms are used, and the level is quite high. There are many conversations about the military, the past and national strategies of the characters, and the story itself is difficult. The level of Japanese language is very high because even if the characters are simply conversing on a daily basis, there are words that the learners are not familiar with. Also, the world view is hard to understand, and even though it is a story of the distant future, there is no sense of the future in life, but rather it is receding. The troops are in remote areas, ruins, and ruined fortresses, so they feel as if they have returned to the past. It is also difficult for Japanese learners to understand the national strategy, which is the core of the story, because the words are difficult. Therefore, it is difficult to use this work as a Japanese language study unless you are proficiency or Japanese people. However, this work is not suitable for learning, considering that the words are only military words that are not usually used.9.578.588280 =168 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

The main characters in this work are junior high school students. However, their conversations have a lot of difficult words related to combat and police. In addition, Kuroko Shirai is too polite as a character who speaks in a characteristic way, which is not what modern Japanese people usually use. In short, the Japanese level of this work is difficult to reach the highest level. This work is not suitable as a teaching material for Japanese learners.

This work has been reborn into a good-quality romantic comedy anime. The character is drawn much more cute than the previous work, and the attractiveness is rising. However, since the connection with the previous work is completely broken, the first character appears without discomfort. Moreover, without explanation. Both the drawing and the background have improved considerably. Also, I want to evaluate that the frequency of underwear and eroticism has increased from the previous work, and it has also improved very much due to cuteness. From the viewpoint of learning Japanese, both the difficulty word appearance rate and the difficult word level are low, the difficulty level of romantic comedy is low, and the difficult words are not scattered at all. The appearance ratio of honorifics is low, and the way each character speaks is real and easy to hear. Since the content of the conversation is at the junior high school level, it can be said that it is a teaching material that can be used for learning Japanese except for erotic.6986.5728.8 =43 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

The content of the conversation is simple, so it is recommended as an elementary for learning Japanese. Similar situations are repeated for each heroine in an omnibus fashion. Therefore, it is easy to study Japanese because you can hear the same lines over and over again. It is a very good anime that I can recommend to Beginners of learning Japanese.5.5107.57.5728.8 =92 terms / 26 episodes * 8th grade

It's a complete story, but it's surprisingly interesting. The character design is very peculiar, but not bad. You won't feel any discomfort once you get used to it. The view of the world is unique, but boasts a high degree of perfection. The drawing is stable and the performance is good, but the work is good. It is an anime that you can enjoy fully with its unique design and comedy elements. There are many points to keep in mind from the viewpoint of learning Japanese. First, there are many old words and old phrases, not modern Japanese. In addition, since the number of lines is very large, the incidence of difficult words is also very high. Therefore, the Japanese difficulty level of this anime corresponds to one of the most difficult animes. Those who have the same level of language skills as native Japanese even among advanced Japanese people may want to take advantage of this anime, which further improves their Japanese ability. In short, learning Japanese is impossible with this anime.86678545.6 =409 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

The main character, Misaki Ayuzawa, has become the first female student council president to protect girls from boys. However, it is a romance anime with a story that she had a secret that she did not want others to know. Most of the characters in this work are high school students, so the difficult language level of this work is about high school students. The appearance rate of difficult words is not high. However, Misaki Ayuzawa is arrogant and uses men's language at school, so female learners of Japanese should not emulate it.

This is my experience that I watched. From the standpoint of learning Japanese, the amount of dialogue of the protagonist is so large that it naturally falls into the Japanese difficulty category "Impossible".

However, one day he suddenly has to turn around a real woman. The difficult words in this work are mainly words that high school students often use in their daily lives. Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is high school students, and the difficult word appearance rate is not high. Among the characters, Kanon speaks the most common way and also speaks simple honorifics. Therefore, she is suitable for both emulation and listening.

Also, most characters often use difficult phrases and difficult terms. Terms that you don't normally use appear, so even Japanese people don't know the meaning. Furthermore, servants summoned from the past, in addition to speaking old-fashioned, use the highest level honorifics as well as polite, humble and respected words.

All the appearing characters are very attractive both inside and outside (unlike the drama work, the character design is also very good). The world view and setting of the ryokan are very precise and well researched. The drawing and the background are of course the highest level in P.A.Works. Especially, the beauty of the background image is wonderful, and it is truly a drawing power that can attract sober materials. There are only drama works, and everyone speaks very realistically. The landlady's way of speaking is very real and you will be able to hear it. The serifs of the three heroines who use the honorific level well are very good for learning materials. Limited to Advanced learners of Japanese and above, this is a very good-quality anime and learning material for Japanese language.

This anime is a drama containing fantasy elements, but there are not many difficult words. However, it will be difficult to find criminal and weapon terms. Heroine Yuno Gasai is unusual in character and behavior, but she speaks normally (her voice is cute but her behavior is awful). Deus Ex Machina is a normal way of speaking, unlike its appearance. He speaks impressed, but not old-fashioned. On the contrary, Mur Mur speaks in a grand word with "xxx じゃ" at the end, unlike his appearance. There are many variations of difficult words, so if you are an advanced Japanese language learner, it will not be bad to try this anime. I also add that it is a very interesting anime.8.5888.5990 =193 terms / 26 episodes * 12th grade

8092.85. Intermediate5. N3-N22011Drama24---A hidden masterpiece animation with an extremely unique story, world view, drawing production, music, and sound production. A masterpiece depicting extremely heavy settings, family love, sin and punishment. It may seem boring in the early stages, but the story begins to develop from the 9th episode, and the difficulty and complexity increase rapidly. However, the precisely designed worldview that supports it is based on the abomination terrorist incident that actually occurred in Japan, and we are impressed by the challenging spirit that this animation appealed to the world. I have no choice. The final development begins from the 20th episode onwards. The story is difficult, so I recommend it to viewers who value the story. OP songs, ED songs with variations, and insertion songs are used extremely effectively, and it is wonderful that two famous songs are included. The only negative point is that the character design is not good enough and the acting voice of the leading voice actor is insufficient. From the perspective of learning Japanese, it may seem easy to watch because the number of difficult words is small, but there are many abstract and conceptual terms, and it is extremely difficult to develop the story. The numerical evaluation is an anime for intermediate learners of Japanese, but it will be difficult to understand the contents in Japanese unless you are at an intermediate level.9.5678.5992.8 =138 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

It is the end of the premise that follows the second term, but the second term is not announced. However, the character design is pretty cute. The two effects, erotic and gloss, are used properly. It's a dark fantasy, lots of blood, a past of torture is quite a bad, but a balanced production with comedy. Drawing is good only for action animation, there are few devised productions, but I feel a good sense everywhere. The theme song is pretty good. Must listen. The sound has a lot of repertoire for action, but the serious BGM is quite good and has the power to appeal to the spine. This is a unique work that has both dark fantasy and guro as its main elements, but also has many underwear and comedy. The theme song and the dance of the OP are very sexy and attractive, and the latter half of the OP is also good, with a very devised production. How difficult is Japanese?

It is particularly difficult to see classic monsters that are not used in modern times and religious terms related to Shinto. The main character is a shrine maiden with a background of Shinto, so it would be good to know part of Japanese culture (but it goes without saying that there is a problem as a learning subject in the first place, it is an interesting anime)7.5578876.8 =57 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

7386.45. Intermediate5. N3-N22011Drama25---This work is a story about high school students aiming to be the best in Japan. "Chihayafuru" means "strong momentum." The main character is a girl who is energetic enough to embody this word. Therefore, the main character does not use women's language very much and speaks in a neutral way. This is real. When emulating her way of speaking, make sure you understand that it is a neutral way of speaking. And this work is a story of playing karuta. Therefore, the difficult language level is very high. This is because, in addition to karuta terms, there are scenes for reading waka poems and explanations for classical words. However, since the appearance rate of difficult words is normal, this work can be understood by intermediate Japanese learners.8777.5786.4 =133 terms / 25 episodes * 16th grade

7291.25. Intermediate5. N3-N22011Drama, Romance11---The content of Japanese is mainly the conversation between high school students. In this anime, there are young people's words and young girls' words that real Japanese high school students speak. It is good for listening practice of reality high school students' spoken words but it is better not to emulate their way of talking. At the beginning of the story, the characters who reunited after a long time talk awkwardly. As time goes on, they will gradually be able to talk with real intention. Paying attention to the change in the way of speaking accompanying it, you will be able to learn more practical Japanese nuances. There are many natural Japanese language in the whole anime, there are no phrase-like lines. However, I say repeatedly, basically there are many young people's words, so as to practice listening but not to emulate.7.5777.5791.2 =62 terms / 11 episodes * 16th grade

Therefore, there are many battle and police terms and judicial terms, and the conversation contents are similar.

She talks a lot of simple words. He also uses easy words for her. Since 70% of conversations in this anime are between Rin and Daikichi, the difficulty level is very low. As mentioned above, some of her words are abbreviated but it is easy to understand the story by the actions of characters. Since the conversations between Rin and Daikichi are simple and heartwarming, it is good for your training of listening. This is a great anime that it should be recommended for Beginners of learning Japanese.865.56.567.2 =9 terms / 11 episodes * 8th grade

9421.67. Beginner7. N5-N42012Action/Battle, Drama, Sci-Fi/Fantasy8---It directs the real world and the spiritual world very well. The story and world view are quite difficult. If you can understand which characters are the two sides of the real world and the spiritual world, and what the spiritual world is linked to what the real world is, you will be drawn into the story of angry waves (repeatedly quite complicated). The dark production of disappointment and despair associated with friendship and romance is extremely wonderful. Characters, especially spiritual characters, are unique, beautiful, cool and attractive. The animation of the spiritual world is a 3D-based movement that moves very well and is a masterpiece. I will also add that the theme song is a masterpiece. A very unique masterpiece that is very unique and compactly packed with all the elements. Moreover, the difficulty level of Japanese is very low, so it is also suitable for Japanese listening practice. Certainly the story may be difficult, but it should be emphasized that it is worth more than that. It's a masterpiece.9.598.5101021.6 =21 terms / 8 episodes * 8th grade

Not only the character of the character but also the personality, inner face setting, and behavior are highly calculated. The view of the world that makes the most of horror with "Japan" Germany can be highly appreciated. The stability of the drawing and the 3D effects are beautiful everywhere, and the production of the death scene gives viewers a tremendous fear. In particular, the background that complements the worldview is beautiful and creepy, and must-see. The theme song matches the work very much and is a fearful OP.

941304. Advanced4. N2-N12012Comedy, Romance12---Because the characters are related to delusional, there are various words in this anime, such as formal words, S/F terms, and exaggerated phrases. Therefore, despite this anime is a school love comedy anime, the difficulty level of terms and conversation becomes the difficulty of the highest: 20th grade. The point which seems to be especially difficult for Japanese learners is that there are two patterns when each character plays a normal way of speaking and when they talk in the way of dramatic phrase. Therefore, I recommend over Advanced learners who can distinguish them to learn Japanese with this anime. However, repeatedly saying, since this anime is a outstanding anime, I want you to see this anime separately from learning Japanese.9109910130 =77 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

Because of the genre of the work, there are many different ways to play words, so if you're not proficient in Japanese, including proverbs, you can't understand the meaning. Many old-style and old-style kanji appear on the screen, but they are not used in modern times. It's not an unlikely way of speaking, but it's old-fashioned, esoteric, dialectic, and quirky. Needless to say, it is impossible to learn Japanese with this anime. This is because Japanese people enjoy Japanese.9.5109.58.510314 =172 terms / 11 episodes * 20th grade

However, the distinctive feature of this animation is that the characters use difficult speech styles like a literary work. You can appreciate extremely exquisite and complicated Japanese. I would like to recommend this anime to Japanese learners with more than proficient level. Some websites for Japanese learners recommends this anime as a learning textbook, but this must be a joke or mistake. The anime contains a lot of information to explain tricks and situations because it has elements of mystery. In this anime, an interesting technique is used when Houtarou is thinking, where words show up on the screen and move as if they were characters. You should be careful that the contents of the conversations are difficult. On the top of that, the amount of lines are huge and the speed of the conversations is quite fast.10101079316 =347 terms / 22 episodes * 20th grade

Of course, the Japanese language of this anime is ultimately difficult. However, as there are many military jargon and characters with distinctive speech, the level of difficult words is the highest. Moreover, many of the difficult words in this work are not usually used. Therefore, if you learn Japanese in this work, it will be biased learning, so I would like those to study in other works first. If you haven't learned Japanese to the ultimate, forget about learning Japanese and just enjoy this anime. You can enjoy a very pure youth story despite handling the noisy tools of tanks.9898.59252 =151 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

All the characters are unique and their designs are wonderful. The wonderfulness of the world view needs no explanation. The shaft is not only for drawing, but also for the background. The theme song matches Hagawa, and the ED song is also good. The sound is wonderful throughout the series. Both the OP and ED are unique and match Tsubasa Hanekawa, and the production also has a shaft-like appearance. (Especially OP is excellent workmanship). You all know that it is a series and animation that makes learning Japanese ultimatedly difficult. Because of the variety of word games, unless you are proficient in Japanese including proverbs, you will not understand the contents. Anyway, the rate of occurrence of difficult words is very high, and if you do not understand it, you can not understand the story.8.598.589272 =68 terms / 4 episodes * 16th grade

As you might expect, a variety of military terms such as weapons ammunition, battles, and operations appear, and there are many terms and lines that are difficult for political relations in adult conversations. Of course, the honorific level is also very high, and not only simply adding “Desu” or “Masu” at the end of the word, but it is also necessary to distinguish honorific and humility. This anime can only be recommended for learners who understand Japanese to the extreme level who like political dramas and political struggles.7.581098158 =172 terms / 22 episodes * 20th grade

This is because the game is the subject and there are many English words (as you know, the pronunciation of Japanese is strange). Perhaps because there are many junior high school students, the content and way of speaking is plain and easy to understand for the SF genre.

Speaking of non-human creatures is a way of speaking to God, with the highest level of honorific and difficult to understand. In particular, in this anime, the point of speaking to God and high-level honorifics is the point. Even Japanese people feel difficult, so it will be quite difficult for Japanese learners. Fortunately, all characters are very realistic. If you can notice the difference between speaking at the age of 14 and speaking at the age of 16, your Japanese language skills are undoubtedly ultimate level.10678.510260 =324 terms / 25 episodes * 20th grade

Professional criminals arrest criminals before committing a crime. This is a work in which the best scenario writer in Japan drew a story. We strongly appeal to us with its uniqueness and reality. The interestingness of the work is guaranteed. However, be careful from the perspective of learning Japanese. Criminal terms, political terms, and ideological terms appear frequently, and the characters are also adults and the age group is high, so the level of difficult words is ultimately high.9.5896.58262.4 =360 terms / 22 episodes * 16th grade

80158.43. Extreme3. N1+2012Sci-Fi/Fantasy24---Thinking of it as a magical fantasy action, a detective animation with a surprisingly elaborate story. It is an animation that can be recommended to viewers who value story because it can show unexpected development difficulty. The appearance of the character design is not so appealing, but it has a good character and internal design, so it plays a sufficient role as a function of spinning the story. In addition, the anime of the drawing and the background is extremely high, so you can watch it with confidence. OP songs and ED songs do not have much to be mentioned, but they have a unique atmosphere because they are unified in the music production of Hamlet etc. over the whole volume. It's a little-known work, but it's an anime that I would recommend to viewers seeking a story. In learning Japanese, there are more reasoning elements than magical fantasy elements, so the required vocabulary bases are different. In addition, there are many citations of Hamlet and Tempest, and there are also many characters with a high age group, so Japanese difficulty is above average. In any case, it is an anime recommended for Learners who understand Japanese to the extreme level.97978158.4 =236 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

The inside depiction and development are very well done, which is very interesting. The character design is normal, but the internal settings are well done and the cuteness from the inside is well expressed. The world view will be enjoyable if only SF elements such as personality changes are accepted. The line drawing is a little thick, but the movement is smooth and there is a sense of stability. It will be an interesting attempt for learning Japanese. Since the souls of the five people are exchanged, it is good to pay attention to the way that the way of talking changes with the appearance. Also, let's pay attention to the fact that each character's way of talking changes little by little as the story develops, while incorporating romance elements. It is very good for learning Japanese because it has many idioms that are often used in everyday life. Each character calls the family name or last name depending on the relationship with the opponent. This difference is very important in Japan. Although the difficult word appearance rate is not low, it is a good work that I highly recommend to intermediate who are confident in listening to modern Japanese.8.587.57.5869.6 =98 terms / 17 episodes * 12th grade

Because this anime is set in an art school, many artistic terms appear. However, because slang does not appear at all, the students can listen to Japanese without worries. The way each character speaks is common and very realistic, so Japanese listening is very easy. Since most of the characters are high school students, the term difficulty level is equivalent to High School, but you may find it a little difficult because there are words related to manga, anime, and voice actors. I recommend this anime to Learners who understand the basics of Japanese.9.5106.56.5751.6 =101 terms / 24 episodes * 12th grade

The obnoxious words that appear are ninja and fighting words, so you know them all in other manga and anime. I can tell you the approximate meaning by looking at the screen. Since there are letters in anime, it is easier for Beginner's Japanese learners to understand. The anime is easy for Japanese learners to understand because it makes the conversation more comedy by making it childish. It's meant for Basic judging, but it's a must-see for All Japanese learners.7868.5957.6 =62 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

The main character is a character from a young age of high school students, but there are some words for young people, but they don't use offensive slang, so you can watch it with ease. For Japanese learners, Vienna is the most familiar place because Vienna often asks questions when there are words they don't understand. It should be noted that the subtitle of each lesson is a parallel expression of "xxx たり" or "xxx たり". From the point of view of learning Japanese, it is necessary to understand that the Japanese used in this play is intended for teenagers. Of course, even adult Japanese, if they are close friends, sometimes have a conversation using Japanese like in this movie.878.56.5682.8 =89 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

The characters in this work are high school students. Therefore, many of the difficult words in this work are related to schools, such as "disciplinary committee" and "school cafeteria." Many of the other difficult words are in line with everyday life, such as "New Year's Eve" and "childhood friend." The main character speaks a little neutrally, but it can be emulated regardless of gender. The heroine, Rin, speaks bluntly and is not suitable for emulation.

In addition, otaku words such as "doujinshi" and "comike" also appear. In addition, words used in general life such as "hemi" are used, and idioms such as "stretch wings" are used.

69327. Beginner7. N5-N42012Comedy, Romance13---A maniac story that makes each other's thoughts through saliva. However, the story is well made and is established as a boy / girl love story. The character design has no appeal, but there are also sexy scenes, so there is plenty of fun to watch. Surprisingly, the drawing and the background guarantee good quality. In addition, the sound production that makes use of the individual settings is very individual, highlighting the mysterious charm of the heroine. Although it is an anime with a rather maniac taste (propensity?), It is a recommended work for viewers who want originality. The answer is YES when it comes to learning Japanese. Contrary to the maniac setting, the difficulty level of Japanese difficult words is low and the frequency of occurrence of difficult words is low. It is composed of very simple words, so even beginners can learn Japanese with this anime.7676.5832 =52 terms / 13 episodes * 8th grade

The characters are just as cute as the previous work, and the character settings are carefully made like the previous work. The worldview needs to be understood with some flexibility (needs the degree to allow fairly unrealistic settings). Both drawing and background have a high sense of stability, especially the background is very beautiful. The advantage of learning Japanese with this anime is that everyday conversation is mostly student terms and school terms, so there is no difficult content. There is no slang or student language. All the heroines are very easy to hear because they speak normally. There is no exaggerated way of speaking that is peculiar to anime. Although the level of difficulty is not high, you may not understand the detailed expressions because the rate of occurrence of difficult words is high. Even Learners who understand the basics of Japanese can learn Japanese with this anime if they are confident in listening.5.577.56.5756.8 =92 terms / 13 episodes * 8th grade

This work tells a story about the hero's past. Since that era was around 1853 to 1869, historical words such as "Shinsengumi" and "Kunoichi" are sometimes found. There are many words related to swordsmanship. For example, "Tachi muscle" and "Mental body". Therefore, the difficult language level is the highest. And the difficult word appearance rate is impossibly high. Therefore, only native Japanese people can watch this work without subtitles.

Many of the conversations are childish for a second-year high school student. Also, there are many variations in the words that appear, and there are many terms that are not familiar to Japanese learners. What I want to say is that learning Japanese in this anime is inappropriate. But I'll add that it's an interesting anime. Therefore, it can be said that the work is difficult to use as a teaching material unless the learner is advanced. And if you're using it for learning, look at how fast male high school students are speaking and what they're saying.6557774.4 =74 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

The story, world view, characters, animation, background drawings, music, sound, originality, and OP / ED production are all at the highest level. It's not my desire to spoil the splendor of this anime with my poor description. Anyway, watch this artistic finish of the anime. As a Japanese analysis, this anime is at an intermediate level, there are classic terms such as “御霊火" (Mitamabi, Holy Fire) and “巴日” (Tomoebi, Hatsubi), so even Japanese people feel somewhat difficult. Students' daily conversation is not difficult, but I don't want to emulate this because the main character, Hikari, speaks in youth language. Other characters speak realistically appropriate for the year, so their way of speaking is good for emulating practice. There are a few difficult terms for traditional events and legends. But more than that, there are a lot of terms related to the sea, because the sea is the stage. In addition, adult lines will have high-level honorifics and difficult dialects, so you will find it difficult to listen to Japanese.9.5101010973.2 =158 terms / 26 episodes * 12th grade

The story composition with a gradual effect that feels the chilliness of the spine and the warmth of friendship is excellent. The Japanese level is difficult to reach the Extreme level, so I hope you enjoy watching it purely as an anime. This is one of my favorite animes so I highly recommend it.10999.59166.4 =249 terms / 24 episodes * 16th grade

Since the whole volume is produced in 3D, you can enjoy the super high quality drawing and the battle scene. In addition, the OP song is very catchy and full of dash, and the music during the battle is magnificent. It's a model of the fleet of the former Japanese army, so it may not be familiar to foreigners, but it is a very popular work for Japanese who like military. As a result of analyzing the Japanese language of this anime, it is known that many military terms and weapon names appear, and that there are many narratives and political topics unique to the Navy. The difficulty level of Japanese is ultimately high that you should watch it not for learning Japanese but for the purpose of enjoying anime.9101098254 =152 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

This series has a variety of word games, so if you are not proficient in Japanese including proverbs, you will not understand the contents. Anyway, the rate of occurrence of difficult words is very high, and the story cannot be understood without understanding it. This is a series that even Japanese people find difficult to understand. It is impossible for foreigners to learn Japanese with this anime, but it is a very wonderful series of anime, so it is recommended that you watch it with English subtitles.98889380 =95 terms / 5 episodes * 20th grade

Don't shy away from the title, please watch it. It is a high point that the contents are better than the appearance character design. The S / F comedy setting that the devil works realistically is very well utilized, and it is usually interesting. Reality is very good. The combat drawing is excellent and overall good. The background has a high level overall, and this high level leads to a sense of realism. Music is powerful and immersive, and is very good music. Also the everyday part and comedy music are very good. One of the impressions is that, while there are similar works, the fact that reality and S / F realism are fused at a high level is missing. From the perspective of learning Japanese, the point is that all characters speak real Japanese and the honorific level is very high. Although the rate of difficult words is high, surprisingly there are many everyday terms rather than S / F terms, especially social terms such as health insurance. Therefore, it is an anime that I can't recommend to all Japanese learner (It is important to note that difficult words in Japanese are classified into the most difficult categories).8.598.588312 =253 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

80606. Basic6. N4-N32013Drama13---The words that come out are not all difficult, so it is a very learned content. Also, the way the character speaks is very stable. It is suitable for Learners who understand the basics of Japanese because it has a lot of silent psychological depictions, so it has a good reading ability and there are few things to learn. Since the theme of this work is swimming, the words "swimming", "distance", and other swimming words appear, but they are few. Rather, Gou likes muscles, so the name muscle appears more often. In addition, some words related to school and club activities such as "prefectural convention" and "study abroad" appear. There are some words that are modern flanks of idioms. Also, many words used in ordinary life such as "insert" and "homecoming" appear. The conversation is all about swimming, but since there are many friendships through swimming, you'll be sympathized with it.8897860 =64 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

In addition, there are many coined words unique to the work. In addition, there are many honorifics of the highest level. In addition, idioms and proverbs also appear. Female characters often speak in a strong male tone. In short, the difficult language level of this work is the most difficult. The extremely unique design, drawing, and world view confuse viewers, but surprisingly, the story development is excellent.

7747. Beginner7. N5-N42013Comedy12---A work depicting the life of students going to Asahigaoka Bunko, set in a countryside in Japan. Some characters speak in a unique language while some others speak in a dialect, making viewers notice the ways Japanese language could transform. Characters mainly communicate in a calm and ordinary way. Some conversations do make viewers see the difference between cities and countryside. People from the countryside must be familiar with scenes such as not locking the doors and buses come once every 2 hours. People from cities might be surprised by these facts. Perfect for learning the fascinating Japanese culture. Level of Japanese used is low and there is not too much difference from real-world conversations, so it is recommended for beginners. At least 90% of the conversations are in easy Japanese, without difficult terms or slangs. Some characters do add strange expressions to sentences, but that's not all the characters, and only a few formal languages come out without any comedic aspect, so it is recommended for Japanese listening practice. I strongly recommend this anime for Beginners learning Japanese.8.587784 =5 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

It is interesting to note that there are many character names related to mochi(rice cake). There are many conversations between high school students and daily conversation with people in shopping streets. There are Japanese greetings and customs that differ in seasons, which helps you to learn more about Japanese language and culture. There are many scenes you will understand four seasons of Japan, which makes you feel like you are studying abroad in Japan. Since Tamako speaks a typical way of speaking as high school girl, it would be helpful to learn the young ladies Japanese. Although the difficulty level is not high, Dera sometimes uses bait difficult words. His cheesy lines that are out of place is one of the attractive points, which need subtitles to understand the meaning of it.887.56876.8 =76 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

Japanese used in a casual conversation between friends appear in this Anime.

In this anime, dialects appear, but the content of the conversation is daily. It's interesting to see how different characters think about dialects. In particular, the conversation between Haruto and Asuka in the first episode gives you an impression of the dialect in Tokyo.

Therefore, many words related to the work of the ward office such as "Certification of Nursing Care" and "Family Register and Residents Division" appear in the difficult words of this work. Also, since the characters in this work are newcomers, they are still in the mood for students. Therefore, younger's words such as "charai" and "slapstick" are sometimes found. On the other hand, the characters basically use honorifics at work. Moreover, it is a very advanced honorific used at work. From the above, this work is recommended for Advanced learners of Japanese. I would like Japanese learners who want to work in Japan to study honorifics with this work. As you know, honorifics in Japanese are very difficult, but when you actually work in Japan, you need to master the same level of honorifics as they do.8.586.55.57123.2 =100 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

"Public committee" and "love letter". And the main character, Eita Kidou, was Chuni-byou in middle school. Therefore, there are some words that are reminiscent of Chuni-byou, such as "Makai" and "Seal". Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is very high, and the difficult word appearance rate is also high. The work itself is not very interesting, and it is not an anime that I can recommend for learning Japanese.

The elements of laughter are included as a romantic comedy, and spices are added to the love story, which is not bad. However, I personally do not like this anime. This is because there are many places where story development is difficult. From the perspective of learning Japanese, most of the lines are college students, so the terms are fairly realistic. Young people's words also appear moderately, but they are also frequently used, so they are good for listening practice.6.577.56699.6 =199 terms / 24 episodes * 12th grade

His life changes as he joins the "service department." Many of the difficult words in this work are school-related words and younger's words. The level of difficult words in this work is about high school students, but since this work is a comedy, the appearance rate of difficult words is high and there are many lines, so only advanced Japanese learners will understand it without subtitles. Learners who understand Japanese to the extreme level should be aware that the main character speaks normally, but speaks loosely. He hasn't built relationships for many years, so he has a habit of speaking like a soliloquy. Such a way of speaking is not very welcome.

The stage of this work is mainly school. Youth language and a wide variety of terms appear, but difficult words do not. Therefore, the difficult language of this work is at the junior high school level. Kyouya Sinomiya uses honorifics for his seniors. He is able to use different words, such as using broken words for his peers in the same grade. A male learner of Japanese can practice well by emulating his way of speaking. On the other hand, female Mao Amatuka uses rough men's language, so female learners of Japanese should not emulate it. The anime is a little quirky for learning Japanese, so anyone who is an intermediate level or above can watch it.

Therefore, many terms of love appear in conversation. However, the main reason for the difficulty of using the Japanese language in this anime is that the main character frequently uses idioms and young people's words that are peculiar to the Japanese language. In particular, most of the difficult words are idioms, and Japanese learners will find them more difficult than the numbers. I would like to recommend the study of Japanese in this anime to students of Advanced and above.

There are also many technical terms such as mechanics / military operations, weapons, classes, orders, etc. In addition, the story is likely to contain political elements and the content is also difficult to understand, making it much more difficult to understand the context than the terminology.

There are no drawings and background pictures with a quality higher than this one. The battle scene is a high-quality moving animation. The background image is as powerful as it is, and the level is high enough to be mistaken for a photograph. Both the theme song and ED song from the first half of the year are very good because they match the world view well. It's inconspicuous, but the sound is quite good with movie-like music. Anyway, the fact that there are many productions of Egui bloody is a positive evaluation personally. Oh, Japanese difficulty? Of course, it's impossible to learn Japanese. You should avoid learning Japanese with this anime.8.59108.58294 =382 terms / 26 episodes * 20th grade

They also involve other classmates to establish a club called "Far East Magic Nap Association". Many S / F terms and coined words based on Chuni-byou appear in this work. These are difficult for native Japanese to understand. Therefore, it is difficult for even advanced learners of Japanese to watch this work without subtitles. In particular, the heroine Rikka Takanasi is not suitable for listening or emulating because she always speaks in a Chuni-byou style. However, all the female characters are unique and cute, and the drawing is done by Kyo-Ani, who boasts the highest level of quality, so I recommend that you enjoy it purely as an anime work.89889380 =228 terms / 12 episodes * 20th grade

The main character of this work is Kobeni Yonomori, a 16-year-old high school girl who lives with her mother and sister. She suddenly lives with her fiancé Hakuya Mitumine and her sister Mashiro. In this work, many school-related words such as "skipping grade" and "additional exam" are used. Also, since this work is a comedy, there are some otaku terms such as "romantic comedy," "sister complex," and "doya face." The difficult word level of this work is very high, but the difficult word appearance rate is surprisingly low. Kobeni Yonomori's way of speaking changes depending on her partner. She speaks very polite honorifics to her sister and her mother, but she speaks unisex to others. On the other hand, her sister Benio Yonomori uses kinky geeky terms for her sister, but when she's at school she speaks polite honorifics. From the point of view of learning Japanese, only intermediate level students and above will be able to learn Japanese with this anime. However, anyway, the main character Kobeni Yonomori is very very very cute, it is also very interesting as a romantic comedy, and the OP songs and ED songs also have unique and catchy melodies....

The main character Angela is also cute, and the design is too erotic, so it's very good. I feel awkward with voice actor Kugimiya, but this is probably the result of easy-to-understand casting of the tsundere element. The animation drawing and battle music of the mechanic robo action is a terrific production, and it gives you a sense of realism. The theme song is also a song with a sense, and it is finished as a well-balanced and complete work as a whole. Don't be shy about Angela's bold clothes.

It's a spoiler, so it's difficult to explain, but it's very difficult to tell which character is which character. However, this is also the essence of the story, so it is necessary to understand and watch it well. The story is interesting because it is complicated. The mystery = setting in the previous work is revealed, so it ends cleanly, but it is up to each person whether they feel that setting is interesting. The sound and sound are still excellent, and the OP, ED, and inserted songs have a dark atmosphere and are particularly creepy. It's been a while since I frozen my spine. The battle drawing is very well done and there is almost no discomfort with everyday scenes. There is a lot of power in the production of the world view of the background of the card battle and the background of the spiritual world. A work with a low degree of publicity, but a high degree of completion. I highly recommend it. From the perspective of learning Japanese, technical terms for card games come out, but they are easy to understand because they are katakana (though Japanese pronunciation is strange). It is very easy to listen because it is composed in very plain Japanese. The story itself can be understood by looking at the picture, so it is also suitable for Japanese listening practice. This is a great piece that I would recommend to Learners who understand the basics of Japanese.9777837.6 =56 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

It's a story of them going to another world and capturing various games. When you hear this much, you may think that it is a mundane and boring work. However, the tremendous storyline and the creation of the world view are wonderful, and there is no doubt that you will be absorbed in this work. From the perspective of learning Japanese, there are many words related to games and games because the story is about the main characters playing games. For example, "first move" and "losing". Other difficult words are bad words and fantasy terms such as "summon" and "technique". In addition, since there are many conversations with strong comedy elements, the level of difficult words is very high, and the appearance rate of difficult words is also very high. This work is not suitable for learning Japanese, but I would like to add that it is very interesting as an anime.9787.57198 =198 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

Compared to other works, this is an animation in which the "pause" that the Japanese like is often used as direction, so you will be able to deeply understand the Japanese sensibility by understanding this interest. The recommended learner is Intermediate, but you can also watch it on Elementary, which aims to be better. Also, for the Japanese, it is a very funny comedy, so if you can laugh with this film, you can say that you have acquired a lot of Japanese language and sense of Japan.7.5788.5887.6 =87 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

Compared to S/F, there are few difficult words, and words used in daily life account for half. Also, since the stage is for students and schools, there are many school terms. Most of the terms in the story can be understood by junior high school students, but since there are several adults in the characters, please recognize the Difficulty Level of terms and speech as a high school student level. However, the Difficulty Level of terminology alone is not high, so it is possible to understand the contents in Japanese if you prepare. So if you are a learner of Intermediate's Japanese, you may be surprised to know that you can learn from this anime.5.5988984.8 =68 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

The Japanese used in the story is not far from what ordinary high school girls speak. It is very useful to learn how to speak in Japanese society, for example, by using polite expressions to superiors. Many of the climbing terms used in Japan (mainly mountaineering equipment) are derived from German, so those who know German will find the difference in pronunciation interesting.9967725.6 =38 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

The main character is a girl in junior high school and high school, but the words used give the impression that she is a little younger than ordinary Japanese everyday conversation. Because of this, the terms are simple and the contents of the conversation are simple, making the anime very easy to learn Japanese. Especially, there are many conversations about food. Perhaps because the characters work at Cafe, we often hear words and conversations associated with the menus of each restaurant.

Even beginners are able to use this for their listening training. I would also like you to learn how they choose to use different tones of language according to whom they are talking to. They can even change their ways of talking to the same person, when they have a different image of that person.

It basically consists of plain terms and simple conversations, so I can recommend this to Elementary-level Japanese learners. Because of the composition of the story, you can listen to the same lines many times, which is good for Japanese listening practice. It is recommendable to learners who understand the basics of Japanese. The fact that only Nagisa uses polite words and other characters do not use honorific expressions is also an advantage for basics learners.6.5867651.6 =51 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

The difficult terms occurrence rate is also very low: 3.5 terms/episode, and the difficulty level of terms and conversation is also very low: 8th grade. Scenes where honorifics that Japanese learners are not good at are also limited.

In addition, the stage of this work is an island in the countryside called Goto. Therefore, the islanders use a fairly strong dialect. Even Japanese people don't understand the dialect they use (Japanese subtitles are displayed for Japanese people!). The key visual of this work seems to be easy in Japanese, but it will be difficult to watch without subtitles unless you have the ability of advanced level or higher.765.55.56105.6 =79 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

Therefore, unless you understand the words of a wind instrument or club, you cannot enjoy this work. However, the genre of difficult words is fixed, so it will be easy to prepare for Japanese. However, the words of the brass band club are not common words. For this reason, we recommend Intermediate learners.

Tomori's way of speaking is a smashed honorific style often used by modern youth. This way of speaking exists in reality, but it is not a good way of speaking.

By the way, in learning Japanese, the terms of tanks, battles, tactics, and the military frequently appear, so the level of difficult words is very very very high. In addition, each of the characters speaks their own unique way of speaking and laughing, so learning Japanese with this anime is impossible.

The difficult words in this work are very high level, and the appearance rate of difficult words is also high. It is nonsense to use this anime for learning Japanese.

Rize's parents use men's for military personnel, but Chino speaks simple honorifics to everyone, and Chiya uses women's, so they're recommended for both emulation and listening. As you know, this is an anime where cute girls just do cute things, and there is no difficult story. Even beginner Japanese learners will be able to understand without subtitles.776.57.5893.6 =93 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

661564. Advanced4. N2-N12015Comedy, Slice of life14---This work is the third work of "Working !!". This work is a story about a hero who works part-time at a family restaurant and meets various people. Since the basic line of this work is comedy, various difficult words come out. Not only idioms but also younger's words such as "hetare" appear. Difficult words are at the high school level, but the appearance rate of difficult words is high. Basically, it will be an animation for advanced Japanese learners. However, the characters in this work have different ways of speaking depending on the other party. Souta Takanashi, for example, speaks to her senior Popura Taneshima in high-level honorifics, but to her junior Aoi Yamada in a blunt, masculine way. This difference in speaking style is so real that it will be a great reference for Japanese learners.76668156 =182 terms / 14 episodes * 12th grade

66127.24. Advanced4. N2-N12015Comedy, Romance12---This work is a sequel to "My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected". The main character is a high school boy with a twisted personality. A romantic comedy depicts an incident between him and the women around him. He often uses words with twisted meanings such as "sophism" and "deception." The difficult words in this work are at the high school level, but the appearance rate of difficult words is high because the number of lines is very large. It may be a good anime to get to know Japan because it depicts the sensibilities of Japanese students, for better or for worse. In fact, some Japanese fans enthusiastically love this piece (though I don't like this)876.55.56127.2 =127 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

If it is understood, the conversation is easy to understand because it is simple, but it is not suitable for learning because the words are not consistent. There are many words used mainly in daily life, so if you know it, it is very useful not only for watching this anime but also for learning Japanese. That's why Elemental wants to take it to the next level, even though it's Intermediate. The prevalence of difficult words is not high, so you can watch anime and learn Japanese by preparing.6.565.55654 =53 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

The characters in this work are high school students. Since the stage is a school, there are many school-related words such as "advancement" and "mock exam". In addition, since this work is set in the brass band club, there are many words related to club activities such as "morning training" and "homecoming club". Difficult words are at the high school level, and the appearance rate of difficult words is not high. The way the characters speak is also normal. They are very realistic because they speak differently depending on whether they are older or younger. From the perspective of learning Japanese, especially honorifics, this work is highly recommended for intermediate learners of Japanese.10109.58884 =91 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

However, it will be an obstacle to learning Japanese. Individual characters will not be heard because they speak differently from the present day.

However, many words and terms that appear during conversation are not used today. If you like Japanese historical drama, this is a familiar word. There are not many technical terms related to Kabaneri. From the perspective of learning Japanese, it is not a study in the first place.

881044. Advanced4. N2-N12016Drama, Horror/Suspence, Sci-Fi/Fantasy12---It's like a compilation of the series. There was a slight change in the character design, and the cuteness of the women was suppressed. The world view through the series is wonderful. However, the shaft-likeness of the production is not noticeable. Is it because the drawing ability improved a little? As usual, the level of sound and BGM is high, and the work with high originality and very unique sound is further strengthened. ED has a unique expressive power, is very individual and wonderful. As a result of Japanese analysis, word play has been restored in the series for the first time in a long time, and you can hear various ways of speaking again. Although the difficult word appearance rate is low in the series, the difficult word level is still high. The numerical evaluation of the Japanese difficulty level of this anime is at the intermediate level, but it goes without saying that learning Japanese is difficult with the Monogatari series.8.5998.59104 =77 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

Aoba, who is a newcomer, and her superior called Rin talks appropriately as a working member of society. Almost all of its characters speak so correctly that they can fit in the real world. Therefore, I would like to recommend this anime to all Japanese learners. Since the story takes place in the game company called "イーグルジャンプ" (Eagle Jump) and the age demographics of the company is young, the relationship between employees is casual, and they have an atmosphere that they feel free to talk to each other. It is realistic for the characters to talk like this because recent IT and game industries are oriented towards younger people. (You should know that workers, who belong to more traditional companies such as auto manufactures, electric companies and trading companies, tend to speak more formally).9107.58.5888 =65 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

The background of this work is a world suffering from discrimination and poverty. This work depicts how to change this world, including the battle of Gundam controlled by the main character. Therefore, the Japanese used in this work is very difficult. In this work, there are some words that even Japanese people in their twenties may not know the meaning of. Moreover, in this work, the way of speaking used by military personnel is often used, which is far from the real way of speaking of modern Japanese people. Therefore, this work will be difficult even for advanced Japanese learners. I recommend that you watch this work for the purpose of enjoying anime.9.5797.58225.6 =351 terms / 25 episodes * 16th grade

This work is a suspense anime. Therefore, there are many case and criminal terms in the difficult words of this work. For example, "kidnapper" and "convict on death row". Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is very high, and the difficult word appearance rate is also high.

The title: three leaves three colours is based on an idiom "Sansha-sanyo", meaning everyone is unique. Every character has its own way of speaking, so it is easy to see who is speaking just by looking at a random line.

The protagonists aim to become blue mermaids, a profession responsible for maritime security and defense. They enroll in a Blue Mermaid training school and grow while maneuvering warships. Most of the difficult words in this work are naval and military terms. Therefore, the difficult language level is extremely difficult at the military expert level. This is because military jargon that even Japanese people do not generally know often appears. Moreover, this work has a high appearance rate of difficult words. It is very difficult to learn Japanese with this anime. However, this anime has achieved very good quality in all aspects of story, worldview, character, music, drawing and background.

It's wonderful that the exchange of life is seriously depicted without any flashiness. The distinctive watercolor-like drawing is characteristic, and the drawing itself has a high level and moves smoothly. As for learning Japanese, fantasy terms are few, but conversely there are many youth words and idioms. Since it is a work that deals with serious subjects, it is a good animation that I highly recommend to intermediate-level learners of Japanese.8.5878.5892.4 =92 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

The way of drawing each individuality is not bad. The view of the world is easy to understand with a common setting. The drawing is quite beautiful and the movement is stable, and the line drawing is thin, so it is very beautiful. The sound is very good and the serious part is especially good. As for learning Japanese, the terms tend to be difficult because the conversation content is an action anime about a magical girl. The way each character speaks varies, but they do it in a realistic way. It has a good honorific tone, you can listen to a wide variety of ways of speaking, such as masculine way of speaking, youth language, and listening with a wide variety of ways of speaking. However, the development is unfolding, so it is hard to recommend learning Japanese with this anime.

724061. Impossible1. N1+++2016Drama13---It is a drama work with a good story based on rakugo. Rakugo, historical background, and way of speaking are reproduced very realistically. In addition, I am deeply moved by the fierce life story of the two main characters. The relationship between the characters that becomes apparent in Episode 10, the story that is inherited by the disciples and passed down to the children, and the way they are shown is amazing. It is an impressive development that makes people feel tears in their half-life and remorse. Although the background is partly simplified, the main drawing is very stable and does not interfere with viewing. The music is not particularly noteworthy, but the sound effect is a good representation of Rakugo and its era, and plays a part in the composition of the world view. A rare work in which you can enjoy extremely realistic Rakugo in anime. Of course, since the Japanese level is extremely high, it is unnecessary to explain that it is not suitable for learning Japanese. However, I hope you will enjoy the Japanese culture called rakugo and the excellent story about it.9.576.567406 =263 terms / 13 episodes * 20th grade

Among them, the "To Aru Kagaku" series has a strong dark fantasy element and is very popular. The stage of this work is a town where all students are conducting psychic development experiments. The main character, Mikoto Misaka, has a higher level of supernatural powers. She uses her supernatural powers to solve various incidents that occur in the town. In this work, original words, criminal terms such as "bomber demon" and "discovery" and police terms are often used. In addition, some people use high-level honorifics, and there are many proverbs and idioms. Therefore, the difficult language level of this work is very high. While Mikoto Misaka speaks realistically as a junior high school student, Kuroko Shirai speaks a young lady and uses extremely high levels of honorifics. Needless to say, the Japanese level of this work is for super advanced players. Although it is not highly evaluated overseas, it is one of my favorite works, so I highly recommend it to people who like dark fantasy.88668123.2 =92 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

The figure term is katakana, so it remains in English. This is a good subject to learn the strange pronunciation of Japanese people. On the other hand, there are many words used in daily life such as "homecoming" and "body fat" in this work. The level of difficult words is about high school students, and the appearance rate of difficult words is not high. The way all characters speak is also normal.

However, the production is flat or monotonous. The character is cute, but not very individual. The sound is good. The production of horror is well done. It's pretty scary.

The world view through the series is wonderful, and this work corresponds to the closing, and the series composition is well planned.

The sound is particularly wonderful in the scene where you can see the stable world view, originality, and Ougi's identity throughout the series. I would like to pay attention to the fact that the word analysis appears in places in Japanese analysis results. Also, since the content of the story is more difficult than the conversation content, it will be quite difficult for an intermediate person to understand the story in Japanese.

Although it is not generally evaluated highly, it is a very complete animation, so I highly evaluate it. This work is a unique work that develops a battle while focusing on the profession of creator. Style is action and metafiction. In addition, the Japanese government will also appear because anime characters will battle in the real world. Therefore, conceptual terms and political terms frequently appear. The difficult language level of this work is the level of working people and specific experts. The appearance rate of difficult words is high, as some characters prefer old-fashioned speaking styles. This work is not suitable for Japanese learners.

Not only by their appearance, but also by listening how they talk, you can understand whether each jewel has boyish or girly personalities, or whether they are childish or mature. Therefore, it is a very good training to use this Anime for Japanese listening practice.8.599.56.5842 =42 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

8456.46. Basic6. N4-N32017Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy24---This story is a fantasy anime that begins when an unhappy girl is sold to Eriasu at an auction. Eriasu is a strange wizard, not a human. The characters in this work speak more slowly than in other works. Therefore, this work is suitable for listening to Japanese learners. The heroine doesn't speak much, but basically uses honorifics. Eriasu also speaks politely, which makes it suitable for emulation. The difficult words in this work have fantasy elements such as "familiar" and "mystery", but most of them are often used in daily life. Therefore, the difficult word level of this work is high school students, and the difficult word appearance rate is also low. This work is recommended for beginner Japanese learners. The drawing and background are very nice, and the world view and story are for adults. Definitely a good work.9.578.58956.4 =111 terms / 24 episodes * 12th grade

8144.46. Basic6. N4-N32017Drama13---There are fewer terms for idol activity than in the first term. However, there are many idioms, but it is easy to use everyday, so let's remember. The character's way of talking is also characterized by Yoshiko, Hanamaru, and Dia, but it's a good work to listen to because the difference from normal is easy to understand. It is suitable for learning because the conversation content is plain and easy to understand. Since Yoshiko is a secondary illness, many words that are not normally used such as "fallen angel" and "summoning" are used. Also, while there are youthful words, many idioms such as "shoulder" and "feel good" are used. Conversation content is more intertwined between 3rd and 1st year students than in the 1st term. Therefore, the second term is that the honorifics have been completely eliminated. Even in junior high school students, there is not much in Japan that they do not use honorifics. Since it can happen only when you are on good terms, it is better to use honorifics. Finally, the story of this work is in Numazu, Japan. Students who are interested in the area of Japan are encouraged to take a look because the tourist spots and the beautiful sea are drawn so realistically.7.57108844.4 =48 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

8058.86. Basic6. N4-N32017Action/Battle, Sci-Fi/Fantasy13---First of all, since this work is a fantasy, there are many words specific to the work, so it is difficult to understand. Besides, Regu uses old Japanese. These are not the words that we use every day, so I would recommend them to learners who have completed basic learning. Since this work is a complete fantasy animation, many terminology specific to the work is used. It comes out many times, so it's not impossible to remember. Also, Regu speaks a little difficult. Some old wording is also used. A simple idiom also appears, but most of the conversation is supposed to be in the main theme of the work, "Abyss", so it is not a daily conversation.9.5786.5958.8 =63 terms / 13 episodes * 12th grade

81164.83. Extreme3. N1+2017Comedy13---This work is a fantasy comedy. The story begins when Kobayashi helps the dragon Tohru. The main character, Kobayashi, is a woman, but she uses neutral words. Besides, she sometimes uses men's language. There are many such women in Japan, so they are real. However, if you want to emulate her, make sure you understand this difference. Tohru uses women's and honorifics, making it suitable for both listening and emulating. This work has a strong element of everyday life, but the appearance rate of difficult words is high, and the level of difficult words is also very high. There are geek terms, idioms, and work terms. Therefore, this work is recommended for advanced learners of Japanese. I love this anime, and when I heard the announcement of the second season, I cried for the resurrection of Kyoto Animation. Good luck, Kyoto Animation.8.586.58.59164.8 =133 terms / 13 episodes * 16th grade

8051.66. Basic6. N4-N32017Slice of life, Sci-Fi/Fantasy12---Compared to other anime, there are very few characters introduced. And the conversation between Chito and Yuri is the main plot point. Because they both speak at a slow speed, it is very easy to understand. A few technical military terms appear, but since most of the conversation consists of plain terms, I would like to recommend it to elementary level Japanese learners. As the difficulty in conversation about the world view increases in the second half, it is very comprehensive and elementary level at best, but for beginners of the Japanese language, I would recommend you to try and challenge for yourself.977.58.5851.6 =51 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

77211.23. Extreme3. N1+2017Action/Battle, Sci-Fi/Fantasy12---Contrary to the cute character design, the story and the world view are real spy movies. Although it has a structure that is close to the one episode, chapter numbers are randomly arranged, so the way the episodes are displayed has been devised, which is very interesting. The drawing is very stable, including the action scenes, and the background, decoration, and clothes are reproduced in British style. It has a great effect as an action, and the story is very interesting because it is deeply designed with spy elements and humanity. I definitely want to watch the sequel movie animation. Needless to say, Japanese is very difficult.9886.57211.2 =158 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

77116.44. Advanced4. N2-N12017Action/Battle, Sci-Fi/Fantasy,12---A simple story composed of two episodes in one episode. It's a little boring, but not so bad as deducting points. The characters are cute Frame Arms Girl and the main character is cute. This is a work that admires the cuteness of characters. The setting is very expressive of the Kotobukiya personality. The drawing level during the 3D battle is extremely high. There is no sense of incompatibility with 2D everyday scenes. The operation sound of the machine is very good, and the normal sound is quite comfortable. The OP has a great movement and is very good, and the ED has a good sense and is a good-looking animation. In learning Japanese, there are many difficult words associated with laughter, so it is not difficult if you ignore the dialogue about laughter.788.578116.4 =116 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

7750.46. Basic6. N4-N32017Romance12---This work is a love story. The stage is Kawagoe, a city that prospered as a castle town, and the buildings of that time still remain today. Learners who like Japanese culture will enjoy this work. This work also gives a glimpse of everyday life, such as Japanese school life and parental transfers. There are many difficult words related to schools such as "athletic festival" and "school of choice". Next to that, there are many younger's words related to romance, such as "Ichatsuku" and "Kokuru". Since the characters are junior high school students, the difficult word level of this work is junior high school students, and the difficult word appearance rate is not high. Also, since the main character and the heroine speak normally, they are suitable for both listening and emulating. In particular, the heroine has few words, and her way of speaking is very real. In the past, Japan had an indescribable aesthetic. The title of this work also has a meaning that is not exactly what it says, so Japanese learners should check it out. This is an idea unique to Japanese people who value emotions and line spacing. From the above, this work is recommended for beginner Japanese learners.9.587.57.5650.4 =75 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

A formal and with a sense of distance and the way they talk to each other at school, and a friendly more light way of speaking to each other outside of school. You can learn one of the characteristics of Japanese that one can adjust a sense of distance with others by changing the way of speaking. If you like romance anime, use this opportunity and learn those terms. You will be able to enjoy other romance anime more easily.8.5778754 =53 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

73139.24. Advanced4. N2-N12017Drama12---The conversation content of this anime is mostly about mystery solving and strategy elements, and since there are many young people's words, the variations in terms and vocabulary that appear are very large. The characters have a relatively realistic way of speaking, but various types of difficult words appear in anime in which it is difficult to specify the genre of the term. It is difficult for even Japanese learners of Advanced and above to learn Japanese with this anime.6.58877139.2 =139 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

7374.45. Intermediate5. N3-N22017Comedy12---This anime is about a main character who works at a concept cafe "Stile" and lives her daily life while working part-time. Note that each character has a different personality and way of talking in daily life and customer service. Also, since the way female characters speak changes greatly between the time of serving customers and the time of daily work, listening requires a prerequisite knowledge of the "Attributes" character, which is the concept of the work. In general, the Japanese level of comedy films varies widely, but the Japanese level of this anime is rather high. Therefore, I would like to recommend this anime to intermediate Japanese learners.6.5958874.4 =74 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

7182.85. Intermediate5. N3-N22017Comedy12---This is a comedy animation about angels and demons training in the human world, but it basically describes the daily lives of high school students. Therefore, although the conversation is simple and easy, there are a few kinds of words used. It is a good idea to practice listening, being aware that RPG-related game terms and religious terms will appear. However, as it is a comedy, various words come out and topics are often discussed, so you won't be able to enjoy it unless you can understand the words. For this reason, I would like Japanese learners who are making progress in studying vocabulary in Intermediate to try this anime.7777.5782.8 =82 terms / 12 episodes * 12th grade

72142.44. Advanced4. N2-N12017Action/Battle, Sci-Fi/Fantasy12---It's a story about a hero who is the only survivor of humans in a decadent world where humans have perished, encountering fairy weapons in the work of military weapons management. The world view seems to be very interesting, but it is a pity that the story does not make full use of it. However, the OP song is absolutely wonderful. Only this music is a must listen. Now, let's talk about Japanese analysis of this anime. Many of the difficult words in this work are military terms. For example, "military uniform" and "commander". And since this work is fantasy, there are many coined words unique to the work. Therefore, the difficult words of this work are difficult to the highest level. The main character, Willem Kmetsch, usually speaks normally, but uses advanced honorifics for his superiors. Rhantolk Ytri Historia uses women's language and speaks politely. Besides, she uses advanced honorifics. However, the honorifics they speak are not used in everyday conversation. It is an extremely difficult honorific used by military personnel. Therefore, it is not recommended to study Japanese with this work. Let's enjoy anime purely with subtitles (listen to the OP song anyway!)6.5777.58142.4 =106 terms / 12 episodes * 16th grade

7148.86. Basic6. N4-N32017Slice of life12---Because the characters are trying to create a small theater company, words related to theater appear. Other than that, the works are suitable for learning Japanese because daily conversation is conducted in plain Japanese. There are few difficult terms, so you can watch it without worries. In addition, since the characters written in the Hinako notebook "HINAKOTO (HINAKOTO)", which is also the title of the work, appear as a video, it is advantageous for students to learn how to read Japanese. The Japanese language learning level of this animation is Intermediate, but it has three advantages of listening, reading, and emulating, so please watch it and use it for Japanese language learning.6.5768848.8 =73 terms / 12 episodes * 8th grade

6620.87. Beginner7. N5-N42017Drama14---The story structure is poor. Too simple. The character is not cute. The drawing is rough, the movement is not good, and the production is not good enough. The 3D drawing of the live scene is wonderful. However, there is no point that can be evaluated only there. The music itself is good, but the sound production is not good. The personality and laughter elements are not bad, and there are some points that make you laugh. The OP has good movement, music, and performance, but the ED does not draw well. Overall, I can't really appreciate it. It's popular in Japan ... Why? However, there is good news from the perspective of learning Japanese. There are few difficult words,
