Brother in Japanese

what is the different between "onichan" and " Anniki" in Japan??

those words means brother right??



Oniisan O+san=very respectful way

Oniichan =respectul and very affectionate



Chan is used in an affectionate way, San in a respectful and formal way,


Aniki, is almost a slang like, something like English - dude - bro- , though this also can be used in an affectionate way but still it is a bit rough style. A female person who uses this is considered to be rather masculine type. Yet it does not mean that you are being rude. 








wow! i see, well noted and arigatou gozaimasu Roo san^^
