    Default I need help on a word

    にんげんみあふれる

    人間味あふれる

    A student is using this to discribe Kabuki, but when I translate it, it comes out as something like flowing of human kindness, and my JTE translated it as humane so I am completely stumped on this, Any help would be great!

    Full of humanity is what I would pick.

    the funny thing is that 人間味 can also mean human weakness. and in Japan weakness and fraility can be seen as good points raither than bad. hmmm
