Thanks for elaborating joelgundam01. Would you, by chance; have more information regarding the suffixes (honorifics) -san, -chan, & -kun? What sets them apart? I'm aware the -sama is used when referring to someone whom one holds in high regard, or is their senior. The other three aforementioned honorifics, as you mentioned; seem to be synonymous. If there was a more specific meaning to each, I'd love to know; especially considering how often -san, -chan, & -kun are seen in anime.

From what I have seen. Now I may be wrong with this, but "chan" seems to be more for someone talking to someone they are older then. Like the onii-sama or onee-sama would refer to the younger person by "insert name"-chan.

kun and san I am not too sure about yet.

Kun, san and chan can be used in many ways. It's true that chan is usually used for people that are younger, but I have read some titles that have used it for older characters. Usually it's for a joke between friends and siblings that act childish, but I have seen Onee-chan and Onii-chan used a few times now.

San - Is a really generic honorific and it's a really safe one to use if your not sure which honorific to use. It's pretty much the equivalent to Mr, Mrs, Miss and Ms all in one.

Chan - Usually used to address young girls, but can be used occasionally for young boys too. Sometimes it can be used for older people that act childish.

Kun - Usually used to address young boys, but can be used to address older men as well. It's very rare for a female to be called kun.

Sama - Usually used for nobles, aristocrats and royalty. However, like you said. It can also be used for someone that has high respect for someone. Almost to a level where the person is worshiping them.

Dono - Used for people that are the head of a business or household.

Pseud-OCD (aka pseudo obcessive compulsive disorder)

def. - The mental state of requiring order, for reasons that can seem incoherent. Unlike OCD, Pseud-OCD doesn't require said order to prevent a nervous break; it just really pisses us off when we can't have our way.
