    I have a quick question. 

    
    ごめんなさい

    is sorry right? but when I used a hiragana chart I noticed that there is no "go" but ko which is こ. I notice that a lot of the time there are markings like quotation markings at the side. What is this called and are there more symbols like it? I'm assuming that it alters the sound and perhaps meaning of the 48 hiragana characters. Would this also mean that the 48 are base characters with these symbols added onto them? Thanks.

    Kinda late, but allow me to explain. :P

    Yes, ごめんなさい means sorry. The quotation marks you're talking about are called "dakuten", and it's only used on a few of the hiragana and katakana characters.

    They're used for the k-line, s-line, t-line and h-line. So that means:

    k-line: かきくけこ (ka ki ku ke ko) becomes がぎぐげご (ga gi gu ge go)

    s-line: さしすせそ (sa shi su se so) becomes ざじずぜぞ (za ji zu ze zo)

    t-line: たちつてと (ta chi tsu te to) becomes だぢづでど (da ji zu de do)

    h-line: はひふへほ (ha hi hu he ho) becomes ばびぶべぼ (ba bi bu be bo)

     

    Similarly, there is also "handukaten" but it's only used on the h-line. In that case, はひふへほ just becomes ぱぴぷぺぽ (pa pi pu pe po)

    All of this is just for the sake of creating a larger variety of consonant sounds in Japanese characters and they're used in the same way for katakana characters. In fact, some hiragana and katakana charts do have dakuten and handakuten characters as well.

    I hope you enjoy your time here :) 

    Unfortunately, this forum is kinda dead. Lol the Conan hype is probably the same as it always was :P but there just aren't as many active members here now as there used to be.

    Im pretty sure there are still a few active people tho! 


  3. You've never seen how large insects can get here :V I mostly just let insects go their merry way as long as they're not harmful or dirty like cockroaches and mosquitos

    A moth of like 3 inches pooped on my window and got inside my room the other day :v 

     

    Speaking of which, we also found a fat rat dead inside the washing machine :| 

     

     

    @Zubi-There's one thing to do with them.

    KILL THEM WITH FIRE BEFORE THEY MULTIPLY MORE

     

    Or shoot dishwashing liquid at them and watch them suffocate to death
