Does Japanese have a the?

Why do Japanese say Nani?
Nani is the more formal and polite term to use when asking a question, as in: Nani wo suru tsumori desu ka? (なに を する つもり です か？) > What do you intend to do? or What are you planning to do?
Should you say Anata?
Rule Number 1: Don’t say Anata (too much) (Fight Club joke abbreviated). Well, that’s an exaggeration, but it’s true that Japanese people more often than not will omit the “you” information from their sentences. Similar to omitting “I”, this information is mostly derived from the context or other grammar clues.

Is Omae rude?
Omae (alternatively written おまえ or お前) is a pronoun meaning “you.” It is very informal. Because of this, when used between close friends it can be a sign of that closeness, but will come across as disrespectful, or even aggressive when used with people outside one’s inner social circle.
