So, be careful when using it. You can find this onomatopoeia in daily conversations, literature and also manga.

Today we are going to comment a “happy coincidence” with a Disney Pixar movie and a Japanese movie (by Toho), both out in 2015. Both are based on the idea that inside our brains we have anthropomorphic emotions that decide for us sitting around a table. Both movies are comedy, however the Japanese one is focused on love, the lifestyle of a woman who is turning 30. While in the Japanese movie we can actually see real people, Pixar and Disney have created cute creatures.

Despite the differences, similarities, or the idea behind is strikingly the same: what do we have, or what happens, in our brains? Disney Pixar Inside Out and Japanese Toho Poison Berry in My Brain seem too similar. A happy coincidence? Or is Inside Out taking the main idea from the manga?

Let’s discover more about these two movies:

Are you collecting all Rinkya Japanese flashcards? Great! Today we’re going to learn about “shizu shizu” quietly. This onomatopoeia describes someone who acts or behaves in a very quiet way. It might also describe someone who acts in a graceful manner. In fact, “shizu shizu” comes from the adjective “shizuka” which means “quiet.” So, if you read Doraemon, you might find this onomatopoeia only if one of the characters is acting in a quiet way. You can certainly find this onomatopoeia in daily conversations, literature and also manga.
