Learning while having fun is the desire of every student during his school career, after all, how many times have we imagined studying languages while watching our favorite animated series? Apparently, an enthusiast of Naruto he succeeded in this feat, documenting everything with a video published online.
The Naruto animated series has been dubbed and subtitled all over the world, but no version will ever exceed the emphasis of the original. Keeping this in mind, a Naruto fan has learned the Japanese language only by looking at the anime based on the work of Masashi Kishimoto.
This insane feat was documented through a video posted on YouTube. User Xiaomanyc decided to test himself watching for ten hours straight the entire first season of the Naruto animated series with the original dub.
“THEday I decided to try to learn to speak Japanese by watching Naruto season 1 in Japanese in just one day, 10 continuous hours, without English subtitles“, he stated in the video. “The idea is: how much Japanese can I learn by completely immersing myself in Japanese by depriving myself of the English language? I would learn as a child would.”
“I know there is a lot of debate about the possibility of learning Japanese by watching anime, and in this video we will find out if it is possible. It’s a crazy experiment, which I don’t expect to succeed, but I think the results will be interesting”.
At the end of the 10 hours Xiaomanyc has this learning method is not recommended to people who have no previous experience with the language. Conversely, if you are at a beginner or intermediate level, watching an anime in the original dub could help. Naruto becomes Jonin in this fan-art. Let’s observe how Naruto would be drawn in the style of nine anime.
