I can't think of any disambiguations that clever so here is a random one:
語 = ご = go = language
=
言= い = iu = say
+
五 = ご = go = five
+
口 = くち = kuchi = mouth

All makes sense except the 'five'

Kanji actually makes a lot of sense.
木=tree 林=forest
火=fire 炎=big flame

But then again, it doesn't.
脛, the kanji for 'shin' can be broken down into 月, 一, く(x4), and エ which mean month, one, the sound for ku four times, and the 'e' sound respectively.
理, logic, doesn't either. 'king' and 'village' are it's components.

ooh nice. I'm a good guesser.
How hard is it to learn Japanese?
I heard it takes some people years to learn.
And I know that there are different types of writing (I know there is Kanji, Hirigana, Katakana, Romaji [which is the english alphabet], and I think that's it.)

michin got it pretty good.
Except learning Japanese is hard.
The pronunciation is easy as ****, much easier then German as you said below.
No gender or (major) tense ********.

But there are more verb forms and some have really specific uses.
Like they have forms for allowing someone to do the verb, or causing someone to do the verb, or you can do the verb. Volitional, causitive, and conditional forms they are called. But most the conjugations are regular and pretty easy to learn and even imply after you get a hang of it. Taberu for example, to eat, is under the Group 2 conjugation patterns, because it ends with iru or eru. Iku, to go, is under Group 1 because it ends with just 'u'. All Japanese verbs end with 'u' in normal form btw. There are a few -eru and -iru verbs under group 1 but not too many. suru, to do (which is used very commonly with other words, like dansusuru, to dance, to make verbs into nouns) and kuru, to come.

And there are tons of little peculiar things that don't make sense to us Western people called particles which are basically grammatical markers and flavor changers.
For example, we will take the very common sentence "kimi wa nan(i) desu ka?" which means "Who are you". Wa and ka (written は and か) are the particles. wa marks topic (NOT SUBJECT) and ka turns the sentence into a question. Like "yama da" is "That is a mountain" while "yama da ka" reads "Is that a mountain?"

As you can tell lots of words are implied in a sentence in Japanese as well. Yama da is literally "Is mountain." But formality is a huge thing in Japanese, so in a formal situation you would say "Sore wa yama desu" which is literally "That is a mountain" da and desu are about the same thing, just different formalities. da is a simplified form of the old, archaic copula (to be word) in Japanese, desu is something like a copula but is more like "is existing as..."

Oh, and they have lots of weird peculiar things like instead of "three mountains" being

(cont....)

三 (san) + 山 (yama), it's 三つ山, or mittsu yama.
That is just because of archaic etymology that never evolved, but other examples exist...

On the topic of the writing systems, yea they are the hardest part of obtaining FLUENT Japanese. Knowing hiragana and katakana, the easy ones, and a bit of kanji is all that is needed for UNDERSTANDING kanji. But for mastering Japanese, the writing systems are a total bitch.
Really just dedication and practice.

Anyway, I would just drop German and learn Japanese. That is exactly what I did and I am much more happy with Japanese.

Btw if it sounds like I have mastered Japanese, that is very wrong. I have a hard time understanding anime oftentimes, I know more about Japanese then I do Japanese.

Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide to do. Sorry for the long read.
じゃねまたよ, ともだちーさん.

P.S. Learn hiragana/katakana and basic grammar before vocab for Japanese. Start watching a lot of anime as well, it helps **** tons. Then as you learn vocab, learn kanji at the same time. And don't just learn the kanji for the vocab you are learning, learn random kanji at the same time. It improves literacy and vocab, although it is pretty misleading. When they teach you kanji, they will give you a character and give you it's pronunciation(s) and it's meaning. But many kanji and their respective vocab don't match exactly... how to put this... so 館 for example. 館 literally means "mansion" but when you learn it you will probably see "building" or something of the like. And the word ''mansion" "yakata" in Japanese. But 館 is also read "kan". So you may learn this kanji and think 館 = kan = building while it is actually 館 = yakata = mansion.

Btw, the reading kan is used for kanji compounds as in 図書館 which reads toshokan and means libary. 図書 means books (why it isn't 本館, 本 being the normal kanji for book, I don't know) so it literally means book mansion/building

I would drop German but I have to take two semester long courses at my school to graduate or to even get into college. The school is **** though, so they only offer Spanish and French. They somehow got me into online German, it being taught through a university in a different state.

Thank you very much for the advice.

Anyway, your welcome.

Learning japanese isn't hard.
It's memorizing the 2000 kanji that is hard.

They say that it's over 50.000 kanji overall.
THAT'S ALOT OF ******* KANJI.

Kanji along with the Chinese characters made sense at the period they were invented.
Now, it might be a bit hard to make sense when you want to explain a concept such as relativity with a simple drawing.

How bout I try to clear it up? I'm chinese and I'm taking japanese courses :o..   
In both ways, that can be japanese or chinese. Im not an expert in Kanji (japanese) but in chinese, the first word would be women. The 2nd word would be rape. Im not sure what it means in Kanji but in chinese it means rape. In kanji it COULD be noisy, I'm not 100% sure. ^ ^ Hope that helps? kinda :P If that was completely useless then... Please enjoy the GIF :3
