The purpose of this research is to explore and analyze the kinds of background and processes learners use to acquire their portaits expressed in Japanese (afterward denoted as ‘verbal character’) by anime viewing as a significant part of their learning. With this purpose in mind, the life story of a French Japanese learner ”C”, who learned Japanese by extended viewing of Japanese anime during the formativee years of childhood and youth is qualitatively analyzed to explore how her learning has produced different verbal characters in Japanese, in contrast to her native language. As a result of analysis and consideration, a contrast was found between France (West) and Japan (East) in terms of the background of C's verbal character acquisition. The research suggests that the process of Japanese learning of C is an acquisition process of her verbal characters, not in “French side” of this contrast but in “Japanese side” (Japan viewed in Anime), trhough the personal language practice of extensive viewing of anime and monodramas in Japanese, in hopes of self-affirmation.
