I'm actually going to go through this whole clip and explain every word that I understand in it over the next few days.

When Konata points to herself, she says...

Kitsune (狐) = Fox

Watashi wa kitsune. (私は狐.) = I'm a fox.
Anata wa kitsune. (あなたは狐.) = You're a fox.
Sore wa kitsune. (それは狐.) = That's a fox.
Kitsune desu. (狐です.) = It's a fox.

Sunday, August 17th 2008.

This clip again.

When Kagami asks what Konata is doing, you hear this at the very end of her sentence...

No (の) = ? or 's / of

Before I start the examples, I want to explain something.
No can be used in various ways. The way Kagami uses it in that sentence was to add a question mark to the end. This is common to do between friends or people you either see as equal to you or lower than you. It can sometimes be removed if you have a tone of voice for a question, like in English.
Though, if you're with someone you think is higher, like family, your politeness level should be higher. Instead of using No you should use Ka at the end of a sentence for a question.

Koko no? (ここの.) = Are you here?
Watashi no tomodachi no? (私の友達の.) = Are you my friend?


Though, it can also be used as 's / of. I prefer to think of it as 's, though.

Watashi no neko~! (私の猫~!) = My cat~!
O, kore wa anata no hon ka? (お、これはあなたの本か.) = Oh, this is your book?

Monday, August 18th 2008.

This clip again... again.

The first word of Konata's sentence is...

Minna (みんな) = Everyone / Everybody

Also, I'd like to note that the more polite way of saying Minna is Minna-san. This is like with No and Ka at the end of a sentence. If you're a teacher addressing your class, for example, it'd be Minna-san. Unless you knew all the students personally or something.

Minna, ikou! (みんな、いこう!) = Everyone, let's go!
Minna, urusai kudasai... (みんな、うるさいください...) = Everyone, please be quiet...
Minna-san! Watashi wa anatatachi no sensei desu! (みんなさん! 私はあなたたちの先生です!) = Everyone! I'm your teacher!
Minna-san, ohayou~! (みんなさん、お早う~!) = Everyone, good morning~!

みんな

This clip again... again.

The first word of Konata's sentence about herself being a fox is...

Watashi (私) = I

Note: For males, watashi is polite. They usually say Boku or Ore. Any gender can use Jibun if they don't want to be classified as any gender. It's the usual for a female to use Watashi, though. Unless you show no respect for someone and you're really pissed at them. Then I guess you could use Boku or Ore. Just depends, really. XD

Watashi no name wa Danieeru desu. (私のなめはダニエールです.) = My name is Danielle.
Watashi wa ningen! (私の人間!) = I'm human!
Watashi no tomodachi~! (私の友達~!) = My friend~!
Watashi wa oujisama! (私は王子様!) = I'm a prince!

This clip again... again... again.

Kagami says that Konata must think she's a wolf or something...

Sore wa ookami! (それは狼!) = There's a wolf!
Ookami ga suki yo~. (狼が好きよ~.) = I love wolves~.
Ookami wa nani? (狼は何?) = What's a wolf?
Ookami ga korosumaru. (狼がころすまる.) = I killed a wolf. (Nuuuu~! ;-; )

Deshou (でしょう) = I Think / I Wonder


Watashi no tomodachi deshou... (私の友達でしょう...) = I think you're my friend...
Ii deshou ne. (いいでしょうね.) = I think that's right.
Bouken deshou, deshou. (冒険でしょう、でしょう.) = I wonder, I wonder if this will be an adventure. (Haruhi reference. XD)
Neko-chan wa sore ga hoshii deshou yo... (猫ちゃんはそれがほしいでしょうよ...) = I think the cat wants that...
