Before I started blogging about Anime during a cold winter day back in 2009, there is a part of my past that I haven’t touched upon yet. Previously, I used to maintain a fansite, a type of website that was popular back in the day. While some older fans might remember this, I think newer fans should know how it was like back then.

Last month, I have read a few bloggers’ thoughts about watching Anime Raws, which got me thinking about a strange idea that some people have: learning Japanese just by watching Anime. While it can be beneficial to watch Anime without subtitles, I will also focus on some reasons why it’s a terrible idea to try to learn Japanese just by watching it. (Image Source)
