Japanese "adjectives" [Back to the main Japanese page] Why do I write "adjectives" in quotes for this chapter?

The Japanese Slang Jiko undefined The Japanese Slang Jisho 最 高君の俗語の辞書HOMEPAGE Collection Of Anime And Manga Eyes Tutorials And More EmailShare 613EmailShare The most expressive part of any anime and manga character – the eyes are usually bigger than normal eyes. This feature is a common yet unique in many Japanese animations and mangas. Unlike western or other styles of drawing, mangakas and animators give a lot of attention and focus on the expression of the eyes in their characters. When viewing these illustrations and animations, one can clearly see a character’s expression just by looking at the eyes of an anime character – expressions like happiness, anger, fear, sadness, anxiety and many others. With eyes as the most important part of a character, it might as well be one of the most difficult part to draw as well because it is usually the part where the mangaka or artist makes the center of detail to convey the characters expression and emotion.

Each hiragana character represents a single vowel or consonant-vowel sound. In the chart below you can see all of the basic hiragana characters along with the closest sounding roman letters. The five vowel sounds, a (ah), i (ee), u (oo), e (eh), o (oh), are combined with the consonant sounds k, s, t, n, h, m, y, r, w to produce almost all the sounds represented by hiragana characters. The consonant-only n character appears at the end of words. These characters were all originally written with a brush, so writing the strokes of a hiragana character in the right order is important in getting the shape of the character correct.
