Did Anime make you want to learn Japanese?

My weeb self chose Japanese as the foreign language when it was a course in one of my college years.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

I've tried learning bits on apps like Duolingo and some textbooks. Mainly because i would like to go to japan on holiday and would like to maybe hold some sort of conversation and be able to buy things and order without sounding like an idiot going "English?" everywhere i go

Not bad it was a lot of fun, I got good grades and fortunately I had company too but I forgot everything I learnt.

It's certainly made me think it would be nice to know, but it's never motivated me enough to ever actually try and learn it. I dont think I'd have much luck even if I tried.

It's not really that hard to learn another language, it's mostly based on your drive. If they teach foreign languages in elementary schools, an adult can do it.

It's just that Japanese is kind of a "useless" language for a lack of a better description. It's a language that's only used in a single country, so unless you're doing business or something in Japan or with Japanese people, there isn't really much of a point outside of "it's fun".

The reason why most weabs don't really do much with learning it is because:
A: it takes effort
B: "I want to watch anime without subs" isn't that motivating for the vast majority of people.

I took it in college to learn how to read it, and most of the people doing it for weab reasons didn't last long because of those two factors.

No I learned Japanese by watching anime and kung fu movies but it was so I could talk to the IT guys in Japan for network engineering.
