As ChibiDusk pointed out, it was the name of the main character in DNAngel. Of course pretty much all Japanese words can be used as names. Conversely, pretty much all Japanese names are words.

If you are interested, here ->

Suki = "Do you suck?"

IMO "Koi" menas love, also does "ai" and "suki"

I don't know for Japan, but ai is also the chinese word for love, so I would *think* it is more commonly used, but don't know it for sure, I'm not a japanese ^^

When I remembered right, doesn't "Daisuki" means something like, "I love you" ?

Well, I looked it up on the Jedi Translator. [daisuki] (adj-na,n) very likeable/like very much/(P)
Thats what that says.

Damn complicated Japanese words

Suki means "to like" but require the verb "to be" in polite speech

Suki desu - I Like it/him/her/them/etc

When the Word "Daisuki" is written in Japanese it is made up from two Japanese symbols (Kanji). The first (dai) means "Big/large/great" and the second (suki) means "like". Therefore literally if you "Daisuki" something you have a great liking for it.

It gets slightly confusing because it can be used in the sense of "love" without being as direct as using "Ai" (this character can also be read as "Koi") which means "romantic love". As mentioned before daisuki does tend to be used by younger people and only when things get really serious (or the obvious has to be pointed out) is "aishite iru" - literally "to be in romantic love" used.

chocoletto daisuki desu - I "have a great liking for" chocolate

Miki-chan daisuki - I "have a great liking for you" Miki-chan

Miki chan aishite iru - I love you Miki-chan

I'm pretty sure you cannot use Ai in combination with Chocolate as you cant be in romantic love with chocolate (Hmm Considering some of the people here )

Interestingly there is also the opposite - Kirai "dislike", daikirai generally translates as "detest".

Ah I see in that case "Gureibi wo aishite iru" would be valid then

Nobody's got it right yet. "Suki" is an adjective meaning "favourite". It is colloquially used as a verb-like thing meaning "to like", or "to love", so "anime [ga] suki" is correct.

How in the hell did this spread to 2 pages?

The kan'ji for 'suki' shows a woman and a child, supposedly showing the feelings a mother has for her offspring.

Draw from that what you will...

In contemporary times, the word 'love' in English has become overused, moving from romantic love to
'I love the Internet'
'I love beer'

Possibly apply to Japanese and draw from that what you will...

Well, you shouldn't contribute to the mistranslation. It pains me to inform you that despite your valiant attempt at translation from your misinterpretation of the kanji, "suki" never meant "to love".

すき(な)・好き(な)
1 adjective = favourite/favorite
すきなろうにする = do as one pleases
! although an adjective in Japanese it is often best translated using a verb such as "to like"
テニスがすきです = (I) like tennis

"su-kee" is about right, although it can be shortened to "s'ki".

i was taught that its better to say it as ski and most ppl say it like that in japan, aparently if u say suuki like that it makes u sound more western or summin!


edit although i have noticed that alot of animes say suuki instead of ski which is strange and desu instead of des

To one extent, yes. Although my very person represents a love for anime, or "Anime Love". Therefore that shows my aura of anime loving, or- anime suki. So I can be a representation of anime suki.
