I think it's a lovely word, and suits this forum well

According to Wikipedia -

"Suki, the Japanese character 好き for the verb form of "like". Defined in the Obunsha's Comprehensive Japanese-English dictionary as "to be fond of, love, prefer, care for"

This is my take on the topic, drawing on my knowledge of the language. Anyone with superior Japanese language skills, feel free to correct me if I'm in error anywhere here.

Like so many aspects of the Japanese language, "好き" (romaji: suki) can have a modified meaning depending on the situation and context. The most basic definition is "like", such as when referring to things, items, etc.

Example 1:
私はアニメが好きです. = I like anime.

If used in reference to a person, however, it usually has somewhat of a romantic connotation.

Example 2:
私は<person's name>の事が好きです. = I love <person's name>.

"大好き" (romaji: daisuki) is an exaggerated version of "好き" used to emphatically express a liking for something or someone. It can usually be translated as "love".

Example 3:
私はアニメが大好きです. = I love anime.

Example 4:
私は<person's name>の事が大好きです. = I love <person's name>.

While "好き" and "大好き" may be interchangeable in terms of expressing affection for a person, the latter is still a stronger expression. "愛している" (romaji: ai shiteiru) is an even stronger expression of love, but it's only used with regards to people. However, it isn't used all that often in manga or anime. I can only conjecture that it's possibly because it implies some level of truly intimate feeling for a person and we all know how well the Japanese deal with intimacy, especially in public.

I disagree with you all.

The meaning of "suki", like the meaning of "like"or "love", is heavily depending on context. Some explanation may be necessary.

For example, when an anime character is tongue tied for months or years, gather all her or his courage to say "suki", (s)he's trying to say more than "I can stand to be in the same room as you for more than five minutes". When a cowardly character willingly goes to her death for the sake of another, it's not just because she thinks he's cute.

Surely not!
I mean seeing as this threads 5 years old and gets revivied with necomancy with same the answers to the same question over and over and over.
It'll never be answered

Only thing that amuses is me what 'suki' means in other languages, that's a new, fresh piece of info that I don't mind checking out, especially in Russian, that's just funny xD

Japanese guy: anata ga... suki desu! (i really like you)
Russian girl: nan da to!? (Excuse me what did you just call me?!)

I'm fairly sure that it wouldn't be pronounced the same either
su-ki
But feel free to correct me on that.

New people will join the website and new people will put their opinion in, so don't worry about it
Maybe we'll find out what 'suki' means in other languages that have yet to be mentioned too.
