Japanese term or phrase: w-o ai ni onegai
Used in an anime chat.
Kristie
English translation:Wo ai ni, please.
Explanation:

I think “w-o ai ni ” is supposed to be “ウォー アイ ニー ( Wo ai ni )”. It is “I love you” in Mandarin Chinese.

So, the sentence can mean any of the following:
1) Please say “I love you.” The person is asking another person for an expression of love.
2)“I love you. I beg you.”
3) The person is asking for something named Wo ai ni: a song, a website for anime, a product, etc.

"I love you", please!


Explanation:
My guess is that you are translating Ranma 1/2 or something along those lines. Wo-ai-ni is Mandarin for "I love you", while onegai is "please".

Hope this helps!
