I'm going to kick the Inch-High Samurai's Ass

by on Apr.09, 2008, under Gaijin in Tokyo

So.. I decided to pick up a few children books in japanese to try to read. I spent the past hour trying to translate the title(Yes I already knew the title but its good practice to translate it myself). After an hour I started looking for help online. And now I hate the japanese language..

The title of the book was いっすんぼうし The english title of the book was “The Inch-High Samurai”.. So I kept trying to translate it as such..

BUT NO.. The title doesn’t match the text. And I had no way of knowing that. Instead the title of the book isn Japanese is the damn samurai’s name “Issun Boshi” If I had known that I wouldn’t have spent an hour trying to translate the damn thing.

I sure hope reading japanese in japan will be easier.. Otherwise how will I order my ランケンブルゲル
