Let’s learn a Japanese phrase from anime/manga every day! (・∀・)イイネ!!


I pick up a Japanese phrase from anime/manga (almost) every day to learn Japanese with you all!


I hope this (almost) every-day update post will help you get motivated to learn Japanese.



Today´s phrase is:


Jpn :  お前が死んでも何も変わらない。だが、お前が生きて、変わるものもある


Phonetic:  Omae ga shindemo nanimo kawaranai. Daga, omae gai kite, kawaru mono mo aru.


Eng: Nothing changes although you die. But there are things that change if you live.



(I have learned everything important in my life from animation/manga)

The phrase may sound a bit cold and unsympathetic, but it has a true meaning that “I want you to live!” behind the phrase. If there are any friends and acquaintances who face some difficulties and want to give up their lives, this phrase may help them. Live!



お前(おまえ)omae: pronoun; you (reffering to an equal or inferiror)


が, ga: particle; indicates sentence subject


死ぬ(しぬ)shinu: verb; to die, to pass away


でも, demo, conjunction; but, however, though, nevertheless, still, yet, even


何も(なにも)nanimo: adverb; nothing (with neg. verb), not any, and everything else


変わらない(かわらない)kawaranai: verb in negative form; not to change, not to be transformed, not to be altered, not to vary


だが, daga: conjunction; but, however,


生きて(いきて)ikite: verb; to live, to exist


変わる(かわる)kawaru: verb; to change, to be transformed, to be altered, to vary


もの, mono: noun; thing, object, article, stuff,


も, mo: particle; too, also, in addition, as well,


ある, aru: verb; to be, to exist, to live
