Now please stop using it please. Why am I posting this? Because I'm mad at the fact that the Mother 3 translators decided to use it in their patch.

    I still use it... sometimes.
    But I did eventually realize it wasn't the proper way of saying 'Anyway'.

    It's practically an alternate spelling of the word these days considering how many people use it.

    <_<; I know people who've used the word in English essays and have not been marked wrong for it and after that I just stopped caring whether they knew how to spell it or not.

    I realise that anyways is slang but the thing that really ruined the Mother 3 translation patch for me was because they used anyways because I'm such a grammar freak. Adverbs cannot be plural. >=\

    Sometimes, that's one of the things you have to sacrifice for fan-translations. "Anyways" is better than having no English version at all, right? D;

    I use anyways all the time.

    Anyways, I think I'll use anyways twice as much to infuriate you.
