Japanese notes: How to say ‘I like you’ in Japanese?๐Ÿ’

(Ring ring~~) Japanese class time๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿค boys and girls! Sorry if you are expecting new grammar points as yesterday it turned out to be a review class of previous weeks, which can be all found here

Anyway I am pretty sure this blog will still interest you๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I was inspired as recently I am watching this animation:ย ๆ‹ใจๅ˜˜ (Love and Lies). The plot goes like this according to Wiki

In the near future, children who have turned 16 years old are assigned by the government to a partner based on compatibility calculation, in order to increase the country’s birth rate. Yukari finally confesses his love to schoolmate and long-time crush Misaki and discovers she has liked him back. However, when he turns 16, he is assigned another girl, Lilina. Lilina is very willing to let Yukari freely relate with Misaki so she can learn what being in love is really like. The story follows their adventures of the teens as they try to relate with one another while keeping up appearances with the government.

Anyway I quite like the set up and the characters (yeah I know I am like 15 years old inside๐Ÿ’”), so I am thinking about writing a blog onย ‘how to say I like you’ in Japanese.

๐Ÿฝย Note – if you are just a beginner like me, don’t worry it’s actually super easy to follow. I am surprised by how much I can understand now!๐Ÿฝ

Here we go! ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒฝ

Most straight forward version:ย ๅฅฝใใงใ™ใ€‚ไป˜ใๅˆใฃใฆใใ ใ•ใ„ใ€‚/ใ™ใใงใ™ใ€‚ใคใใ‚ใฃใฆใใ ใ•ใ„ใ€‚ย (which means: I like you. Please get into a relationship with me).๐Ÿ’•

More variations as below; just in case you want to impress… ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰ย I’ve marked the hiragana in light yellow is if you need, just highlight it to read.
