Lesson 131 君と見たいな

They must protect their village from demons. The action is superb. And the friendship between the heroes is moving. I’d like to show you this movie.
Briony: It sounds really interesting. But I don’t feel like watching it today.
Kota would like to show Briony the latest anime movie. But she doesn’t feel like watching it today.

Sapna: We’re going to have a Japanese anime-watching party!

Lesson 133 どっちが見たい?
Sapna: I want to watch “Mecha Battle.” It’s about pilots in the future. They control giant robots in space.

Sapna: I still prefer space stories.

Lesson Lesson 134 君はクールな「鬼ガール」
Briony: What did you write, Kota?
Kota: I wrote your name in kanji.
Briony: What’s kanji?
Nigel: It originally came from China. But now kanji is used by Japanese people, too. Each character has a meaning.
Briony: What do these characters mean?
Kota: I used three characters: “bu-rai-oni.” Bu means dance. Rai means come. And oni means demon.
Briony: A demon?
Kota: A cool surf demon! Because you dance on the waves like a demon.
Briony: Awesome! My cast looks much better now!
