    I needed to learn the Japanese language (already learned it)because I’m taking an Engineering degree in a Japanese University, almost exclusively in Japanese…
    But in the end, I would say that Japanese came in most handy for picking up 20-something J-girls— read: nampa and gyaku-nan… lolz

    I need to learn Japanese to be able to play the nice DS games that don’t get translated to english, and the anime that don’t get fansubbed. I also need to learn it so that I can understand all the stuff I’m singing without researching the lyrics 😛

    I need to learn the Japanese language so that when I go to B:Lily-Rose someday, I can let my host sweet-talk to me and I can melt into the furniture in a flurry of shojo bubbles. Bliss. Then I’ll also need to talk in that language so I can ask my host is she’d like to come visit me in the Philippines some time. :3
