Studio Ghibli [3 min JAPANESE #10 – Easy Learning]

Indie Wire said on May 27th that now you can watch Studio Ghibli films on HBO Max.

I’m a big fan of Studio Ghibli films, so I’m so happy to hear that those amazing films are now available on big streaming media service, like this.

I hope HBO Max will be available in Japan soon.

Have you watched the film from Studio Ghibli? My favorite one is ”Kiki’s Delivery Service”!


By the way, today’s 3 min JAPANESE is this.
How to say “Which / what was your favorite scene from this movie?” in Japanese.

Which / what was your favorite scene from this movie?
この映画でどのシーンが一番好き?
kono eiga de dono si-n ga ichiban suki?

  • this → この (kono)

  • movie → 映画 (eiga)

  • で (de) is particle which indicates the range where things hold

  • which / what → どの (dono)

  • scene → シーン (しーん / si-n)

  • が (ga) is particle which indicates the target of emotion

  • one’s favorite → 一番好き (いちばんすき / ichiban suki)*
    *お気に入り (おきにいり / okiniiri) is fine too

Let’s practice using the specific name of the film.

Which / what was your favorite scene from Spirited Away?
千と千尋と神隠しでどのシーンが一番好き?
sen to chihiro no kamikakushi de dono si-n ga ichiban suki?


[Extra lesson]

The sentence we’ve just learned sounds more friendly speaking.
If you want to make this question sentence more polite, you should say like this.

Which / what was your favorite scene from this movie?
この映画でどのシーンが一番好きですか?
kono eiga de dono si-n ga ichiban suki desuka?

By putting “ですか (desuka)” at the end of question sentences, it becomes really polite.

  • です (desu) is auxiliary verb which expresses affirmation

  • か (ka) is particle which makes an interrogative sentence
