Some insights into how Japan uses English - e.g. can you really make a Japanese word by just adding a vowel onto an English one? Actually yeah, you sometimes kinda can.


PolyMatter : Wow - keep making these!

La Volpe : I'd like to take a second to recommend doing passes over your work to clean up aspects like ensuring paths are trimmed all the way (6:52) and assets are entirely masked before cutting them off your timeline (4:15). It also appears as though you sometimes scale up shape pre-comps at times which blurs 'em when scaled, through your use of center framing is top. You evidently have the ability and understanding to create fantastic videos, you just gotta watch out for the small things. This was interesting and well written however, I'm excited to see you grow!

Kilo's World : You feel like you should have at least 100,000 subs. Remind me of this channel on August 16, 2019

Oliver Thunæs : What? How is this the only video on here, and why does this video have barely any views?

Sam Gamgee : If 'up' is ''appu' than what is the Japanese word for APP?

Josh : Great video, but dear god who trains firemaking like that? Just go in one direction.

BubbaSparx : Upvoted because runescape

felipe vareschi : This is incredible, your commitment to quality editing and pacing is fantastic!

Reichukey : I really like the style of this! Make more please 😊

Max Brolet : Keep it up, this is an awesome video!

Eidjf Sidjd : Virgin road Take me home To the place I BELONG!!!!!!!!

Ray Day : Nice.. I like subbing to small premium quality channels.

Proxima256 : I really enjoyed that. Thank you! Hope your channel does well, I've subbed in anticipation

Russell Clarke : You also mispronounced "croissant" - no excuses for that one /)_-) Only teasing! Great video, please make more

Joy L : Thank you for this informative well-animated video!

KakkaRotSRL : Both your two videos are great. Thank you for the great content!

Robert Ewing : Interesting as heck my dude. Subbed.

Nick Day : love the style.. cant wait to see more! love finding creators with like 1000 subs, i know this is going to take off!

Mitchell Mayes : Surprised not to see "Skill Share or Patreon" segway at the end of this video... I had to investigate, and now I'm in the comments... Great Work.

aesar : You've put this together amazingly! Interesting stuff, I'll definitely stick around for future videos.

CaseKat : Imagine a world where the United states and Japan used the same language that mixed both of theirs together! How fun!

The Awesomer : Personal favorite: Baniraaisukurīmu

Connor Saari : Subbed, great first video. Keep it up!

Delirium Nocturnum : Outstanding work, this was such a lovely piece to listen and watch :D

Bryce Walburn : 4:04 - oh yeah? Pronounciation, eh?

Lynte Eyet : Nice video... 229 subscribers ??? Just one criticism, the contrast around 3:51 kinda hurts me

Anthony Castrio : What a great first video. I really like your channel name as well, it's clever!

אבשלום אלוני : 3D printing was not invented in Japan.

Magnus : Enjoyed this. Keep it up!

MRLplays : Great video production. The narrator is pleasant to listen to and the script is clear and well delivered. Any topic, delivered in this professional manner, will draw views. Good job.

Masochistic Meese : Love this and super high quality. Can't wait for more!

Mojar : Amazing production quality compared to the size of your channel! Try stretching your videos to 10 minutes, as that is favourable for the YouTube algorithm. Nice video idea, very much enjoyed it.

Hunter Parsons : Sugoi! (maybe get a tripod not to have shaky hands when filming though. You'll get there)

DoogelyJim : This should be a whole series

Оctаvian C. : refreshing to watch

Setsuna Kubota : WARIO は 悪い(bad) + 男 (man) というイメージもありますね(´▽`) 英訳できなくてすみません!

barbarian blue : Can't wait for your next video!

Ian Gomes : Great vid... keep it up!

MajSigmaE : Incredible work! Stellar animation and very clear, thoughtfully presented ideas.

Halopedian : Vocabularly, syllablary

GG4GJake : Wa is japanese means bad - 2 minutes later Wa in Japanese means harmony

William Pereira Gomes : so well animated 3:35

Henry Zakay : Loved this!

CheesusTheGreat : Its Wah-ri-oh, not Wore-ee-oh.

SciTech_387 : nice video 😁

Balter : Ok that's an instant sub for the presentation alone. The animation is so slick yet simple.

ronald broersma : This was good!

sanpoeigo : I live in Japan and this video is the best articulation of some of the frustrations I've had with regards to my Japanese learning. I'm almost in agreement with the old man! So many times I ask something like, "How do you say "please clarify" in Japanese?", and the answer I get is 「クラリファイしてください」(kurarifai shite kudasai).

TheCrusaderRabbits : The sanskrit is wrong. It reads sarapis.
