Why I decided to learn Japanese
I know this may sound a bit stupid, but I decided to learn Japanese because I'm really into Japanese pop culture. I learn so that I can understand what the anime is saying without having looking at the subtitles, or so that I can sing my favorite Hatsune Miku song without tripping over the words. If anyone else is also learning Japanese for these kind of reasons, please tell me; I don't want to feel like the only geek on Duolingo. XD
(by the way my favorite Miku song is Tell Your World, for those who are interested :D)
Yes! Thank heavens I'm not alone! I fell in love with anime and decided I had to learn Japanese, and besides, then I can sing Peace Sign from My hero academia with going ga bla me bla ble bloop
I feel like almost everyone's ultimate goal with learning Japanese is to be able to understand Animes or songs without subtitles :D
But I don't blame you, I started learning because of Anime too and the reason can be literally anything as long as you have fun doing it I'd say.
My reason essentially boils down to: I wanted to learn a language, Japanese looked interesting!
Since I've started though, I've become a bit of a fan of anime. A big goal now is to be able to watch without subtitles. That's a long way off though!
