Easy Scum's Wish

Learn Japanese with Anime: “Scum’s Wish” (Elementary Level)

You can enjoy the gap between the way high school students and their teacher talk to each other. 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.

Very Easy Clannad

Learn Japanese with Anime: “Clannad” (Beginner Level)

Many high school students appear in this Anime, and naturally there are lots of conversations between family members. Some of the characters talk in a very distinctive way, however, you can hear a natural Japanese in general. I will recommend this Anime for a Beginner, as the difficulty level is low.

Very Easy Toradora

Learn Japanese with Anime: “Toradora” (Beginner Level)

Since this Anime is a high school love comedy, its conversations consist of comical lines between students. 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.

Hard Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions

Learn Japanese with Anime: “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” (Advance Level)

As you can see in the title of this anime, there are many lines specific to “中二病” (ちゅうにびょう, Eighth Grader Syndrome). Chunibyo is a slang, which they believe that they possess supernatural powers and behave so. The word “中二病” is attached as “病” (びょう, disease) but it is not a real disease. Since it is close to the behavior of adolescent boys and girls in 2nd junior high school students (中学二年生, ちゅうがくにねんせい), it is called “中二病” (ちゅうにびょう, Eighth Grader Syndrome). Watching this anime helps your understandings about the concrete Chunibyo words well. From just the viewpoint of learning Japanese, this anime will not be good. (But, repeatedly, this is an outstanding anime!)
