That was the ending clip of a Japanese drama, Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend). A story about a woman looking for a perfect guy. One day she received an android that was programmed with everything she want in a guy. Everything!... and that's all I can tell you. Watch it yourself to know the rest of the story. It is a romantic comedy and you should be happy watching the story. The ending song title is Okaeri (Welcome home) by the beautiful Ayaka Iida who pronounced 'R' as 'L'. Somehow that makes her sound cuter. A beatiful song because the great voice and cheerful melody. I have the translated English lyric but I don't think I should put it here.
I really want to learn Japanese language so that I don't have to rely on subtitles to understand the stories I'm watching. Actually I want to learn as many language as I can. I love to learn language because it is a very beautiful form of art and I really hate when I can't understand what people around me are saying. I'm a curious person and that makes me curious even more. Ever watched a Chinese comedy movie in a cinema full of Chinese? Most of the non-Chinese will laugh a fraction later that the Chinese because we had to read the subtitles before understanding the jokes. The worst case is when no subtitles appeared for a joke and all the Chinese laugh but you can only smile.
I've learned some Mandarin but can't only understand a bit when I listen to it in the television. Still not enough to let me understand the full story. Since last year I've been learning Japanese for myself from a book and by watching movies and drama series. Managed to understand and speak something but with nobody to practice with, both my Japanese and Mandarin has faded day by day. Is there anybody can be my teacher? I'll be really happy if anybody want to practice any language with me.
