It is more of a verbal joke. You can get the right intonation if you think of the song that goes, "あお! I feel good. Nananananananana. Like I knew that I would."
あお! I feel good. 7777
Yes, that one isn't a Michael Jackson one, but it's the first thing that occurred to me that had that particular intonation of the あお. ^_^
Me too! ^.^ I tried on my Kindle but that only had Spanish and I was so mad :P
Is that Ikimonogakari? Bc if it is, it's awesome that they used two of Ikimonogakari's songs for Naruto opening songs.
That would be an adjective, just the colour would be blue (あお) but as an adjective it would indeed be あおい
Use this program. It works very well just type using romanji and it will input the hiragana/katakana/Kanji .to switch between English and Japanese input press "ALT" + "~ ". in case of a homonym there will be a drop-down list displayed underneath the input field. Use the up and down arrow keys or mouse to select the desired symbol.
I believe green and blue were once seen as the same color, and they were both represented with "Ao". Could be wrong, though.
You're right, though I would say that what we call green and blue were considered shades of the same color 青 (あお), rather than being "seen as the same color".
Japanese now has a word for green, 緑 (みどり), but according to a quick Google, that only really came into common usage after WWII. Interestingly, Japanese traffic lights still use blue to signify "go", and they are described as ao.
For Germans: wenn du geschlagen wirst "Auuu....", bekommst du einen BLAUEN Fleck
So is the hiragana the form we would see the word in or kanji? Also noun or adj?
Yeah, you're much more likely to encounter this word as the kanji 青, though it is commonly stylized as あお on book/anime/manga/movie titles or shop signs etc.
青 is the noun, meaning the color blue (sometimes also 青色 ao iro), while 青い is the adjective form used when describing something as being blue.
Duolingo wants us to type the answer in Japanese....how do i get the Japanese keyboard? Is there a recommended download? I am using a computer.
If you all watch the anime "Kuroko no Basket", I think you'll know why Kuroko's friend/rival has name "Aomine" :D
