Thanks evrybody! Oh and Blue, You might want to put the
pronounciation so we know how to say it. Although, you
don't have to if you don't want to.I'm writing these down.
Keep posting, keep learning!
[< I know I will...]
you may want to learn the basics of japanese first, like the alphabet, which will help you in pronounciation because there are basically only 6 sounds: a, i, u, e, o, n.
the "a"s are a, ka, sa, ta, na, ha, ma, ra, ya, ga, za, da, ba, and pa. they're all pronounced like "ah," so "ma" would sound like the "ma" in "mama."
for the "i"s, just substitute the above "i"s with "i"s. they all sound like "ee." so for pronounciation, "pi" would be the "pi" in "pikachu."
for the "u"s, they all sound like "ooh." so for pronounciation, "pu" would sound like "poo."
for the "e"s, they're "eh." so for pronounciation, "se" would be the "se" in "send."
for the "o"s, they just sound like "oh." like the "oh" in "oh my God."
"n" is only seen at the end of a word, and you'd just add an "nn" noise to the end.
there are little subtleties to the pronouciations that you can't really get across in writing, but oh well.

sukebege - lecherous face
futame to mirarenai - shocking, hideous (lit. can't look at twice)
kusottare-baba - s***** old goat
seibai wo shite kureru zo - I'll destroy you.
kisama no baba wo yacchao - Screw your mother
"fu"s are a little different as it's sort of a breathy cross between "hu" and "fu," and "r"s are a cross between "l" and "r." but basically it's foo-tah-meh-toh-mee-rah-reh-naee, with the last part rhyming with "pie."
the ones with double consonants, like "kusottare," indicate a jump before the double consonants. so ya <jump> chao. and "wo" is pronounced the same as "o." the rest you can figure out yourself.
