The Japanese Language (日本語, nihongo) is considered an extremely "complicated" language to an English speaker's ear. Some concepts in Japanese are much easier compared to English. For example, Japanese has very few real plurals, and only two (する, 来る) irregular verbs instead of the 200 or so English has. However, the grammar is essentially in reverse order compared to English , and both the words and wording are often grounded in concepts that are either different or entirely external to the English language. Whereas English says "I ate sushi", Japanese would say "I sushi ate" (僕は寿司を食べた), putting the verb at the end. While English goes "subject verb object", Japanese goes "subject object verb", but that's not all. Japanese often drops the subject, if it is clear from the context, so you just say "寿司を食べた" instead of "僕は寿司を食べた", dropping the 僕 (masculine, semi-formal to informal first person pronoun), as well as the topic marker は. This "subject dropping" means that Japanese has a fundamentally different feel to English, especially in media such as song lyrics where the expression of words is much more important.
