Building Your Japanese:

desu, da
This is used rather a be verb. Desu is more polite, and da is slang.
ga
This is used when you are refering to a person as an object or idea. So "Kimi ga tensi" is "You are an angel."
ka
This indicates a question. So Daijoubu ka means "Are you okay?"
ne
At the end of a sentence "isn't it, aren't you" as in context. At the beginning, "well".
no
This is an article that usually means "of". As in kiboo no hikari, "the Light of Hope".
o
Indicates something being done to something. So Omae o korosu means "[I] will kill you" or "[I] am going to kill you." The "I" is understood in this case.
wa
Used when you are addressing a person as such. So "Watashi wa Khan-Hasashi Scorpious" is "I am Scorpious Khan-Hasashi"

Being Polite:

Doomo.
Thanks. (Use it between friends.)
Doomo arigatoo.
Thank you.
Doomo arigatoo gozaimasu.
Thank you very much. (This is the most polite version and so probably the best to use.)
Gomen.
Sorry.
Gomen nasai.
I'm very sorry. (More formal & polite than "gomen".)
Sumimasen
I'm very sorry. I apologize. Excuse me! (as in getting someone's attention) (I have consulted with my Japanese expert. This is the most formal way of apologizing and/or getting someone's attention.)
Doo Itashimashite
It's okay. Think nothing of it.
Wakari
Understand
Wakarimasen
I don't understand.
Wakarimasu
I understand.

Being Mean:

Baka
Idiot
Bakana
Stupid (This is the adjective form of baka.)
Bakayaro
Asshole. Bastard. Jerk.
Ecchi
Perverted
Hentai
Pervert
Kono yaro
Bastard. Jerk. Asshole.
Kuso
Shit. Damn.
Kusottare
Bastard. Asshole.
Nande kuso?
What the hell?
Onore
Bastard. Jerk.
Shimatta.
Light cuss word roughly equivalent to "Oh no. Darn. Shoot."
Zakkenayo!
Fuck off.

Me, Myself, and I:

Watashi
Formal. Used by royalty & most people wanting to see polite. Zechs Merquise/Milliard Peacecraft uses this. Most polite/common form of "I" for anyone to use, but especially women.
Watakushi
Extremely formal. Ririna Peacecraft (Darlian, whatever she calls herself these days.) uses it all the time. I don't like that girl. Anyone who has seen Endless Waltz knows what I mean about the names, so don't email Eternal SailorM-sama or me complaining because of this statement.
Atashi
Flirty. For girls and gay men only. Extremely popular. Usagi uses this all the time from what I've noticed.
Boku
For girls, tough. For young boys and some young men. It's kind of sissy-like, "mama's little boy". Tenou Haruka, Tenjou Utena, Kou Yaten, and Quatre Rabera Winner all use this, to give you an idea of what I mean. It's also the most polite and accepted form of "I" for a man to use.
Ora
To my knowledge, only Gokou and Chichi use this. I think it's more of a rural form of "ore".
Ore
Tough, slangy. Most of the GundamW boys use this. So does Vegita.

All of you:

Anata
Polite and formal form of you. Girls almost always use this form. In some contexts, it can mean "lover." It is always used when addressing an elder.
Anta
Less formal. Guys use it in normal conversations. Girls who use "boku" would also use "anta"; it sounds tough.
Kimi
Friendly but not tough guy form of you. Guys who use "boku" will also use this. More politically correct. Very tough girls may use this.
Omee
See above with Ora & Ore. Gokou uses "omee".
Omae
A girl using this could be marked as anti-social; it can be used if she is very upset (i.e. Utena uses it to yell at Anthy in the movie, and Usagi used to address Beryl at the end of the first season). Teen-aged and college boys use this among their peers. A person who uses this will likely use "ore" when talking about himself. Can be perceived as hostile or disrespectful if used to someone you don't know.
Temae
A rude form of you. Goes with "ora". It's more rural, to my knowledge.
Temee
This is even ruder than "temae". Not to be used in normal conversations. Basically it means "you F***". I've heard Duo uses this form of you in battle, at least in Endless Waltz.
Kisama
Basically this means "you F***", but it carries a more dignified connotation to it. Most of the bad guys in DBZ, as well as Vegita, use it frequently. For that matter, so does Wufei.

A little Chinese:

Wo ai ni.
I love you. (I see this in a lot of Fushigi Yuugi fanfics & yaoi fics that pair Duo with Wufei. Shampoo says it as well. Based a startling number of responses, it seems to be Chinese. Mandarin, to be exact, is the general consensus. So please stop e-mailing me about it!)
