TANOSHII

When a person is having fun or is about to have fun or enjoying themselves, I often hear them exclaiming "TANOSHII!". It's important to sound out both of those I's!

So now you know how to understand the meaning of HAVING FUN / ENJOYMENT in Japanese! Tanoshii~ Tanoshii~

(Of course there is various ways to say it in speech, but this is just a basic discussion. Feel free to get more detailed!)

Maybe in some cases, but mostly no. Kimochi literally just means "emotion" or "feeling", like how you might hear "kimochi warui" (feeling sick/bad/disgusted) a lot in shows, which literally means "bad feeling". However, you might here it with a stretch on the last i, usually said by females. This one isn't the same word, since a the end there is the "ii" which means good. This word means feeling good, or to describe oneself feeling good. Therefore, if you were to type this word in Romaji it'd be Kimochiii, hence the stretch.

Yeah kimochii is a feeling of physical pleasure, like it "feels good". Soaking in a hot tub after a hard day's work, getting a foot massage, scratching a bad itch etc. I've heard any gender say a lot though.

The opposite of kimochii would be "itai" meaning, OUCH, pain!, it hurts!, etc.

Tanoshii is like you have having fun and excited, an enjoyable experience.

      Had some sound issues with PCSX-Reloaded but I think that was just down to my settings / not using the right sound plugin.
      The first disk was the only one that was tested properly as I didn't play enough of the first disk to need the second disk. The second disk dose boot and get to the bit where it asks you to stick the first disk back in though.
