(Hiragana coming when I upload it...)

先輩 SENPAI: Image hosted by Sometimes romanized as 'sempai'. Usually in reference to a student who is older (upper classman). For instance, a 10th grader might call a 12th grade 'senpai'. Often seen in reference to someone who has just 'been around longer' than the speaker. The opposite is 後輩 kouhai こうはい(lower classman).

相棒 AIBOU: Image hosted by 'Partner'. In Yu-gi-oh it is used between the omote and the spirit. It is also the name of that mechanical dog that came out a while ago.

KAA-SAN: Image hosted by 'Mother'. Okaa-san is usually what you have call other people's mothers. Your own mother can be Haha, Hahahue, Okaasan, okaachan, kaasan, kaachan etcetc... depending. Image hosted by <--Mother kanji. The 'kaa' in Okaa-san and the 'haha' of 'hahahue'.

NII-SAN: Image hosted by 'Older brother'. The variant of 'onii-san'. Not NI or ONI, ONI meaning demon :P. Image hosted by <--- the Nii part of 'onii-san'. And the 'ani' of 'aniki' (also 'older brother').

NEE-SAN: ねえさん Is the form I believe Marlene uses to refer to Aeris. (Form of Onee-san, oneechan, neechan... ane/aneue).
