One Japanese phrase every day! (・∀・)/ イイネ!!

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 :  飛ばねえ豚はただの豚だ


Phonetic:  Tobane buta wa tada no buta da.


Eng: A pig cannot fly is just a mere pig.


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

When I watched Porco Rosso for the first time when I was little, I did not understand so much about the story. I remember that I enjoyed the film, but I could not understand the true meanings behind the film. I like this phrase, which Porco said to Gina when she asks him not to fly because it is dangerous. And, he replies back with the phrase. For Porco, flying with the plane means so much to him. It is so cool to have some passion for something you will be so proud of, and something which is a part of your identity as who you are.




飛ばない(とばない)tobu: verb in the negative form; not to fly, not to soar


豚(ぶた)buta: noun; pig, fat person


は, wa: particle; indicates contrast with another option


ただ, tada: adverb; merely, only, just, simply,


の, no: particle; nominalizes verbs and adjectives




Which anime/manga is the phrase from?

Porco Rosso


Who said the phrase?

Marco Pagot aka Porco Rosso


Who is Marco Pagot aka Porco Rosso?
