    public class UserInput {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.printIn("please enter your favorite anime: ");

    String inputText = input.nextLine();

    The error message
    UserInput.java:7: cannot find symbol
    symbol : method printIn(java.lang.String)
    location: class java.io.PrintStream
    System.out.printIn("please enter your favorite anime: ");
    ^
    UserInput.java:12: cannot find symbol
    symbol : method printIn(java.lang.String)
    location: class java.io.PrintStream
    System.out.printIn(outputText);
    ^
    2 errors

    Code (in the proper format )
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class UserInput {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    	Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    	System.out.printIn("please enter your favorite anime: ");
     
    	String inputText = input.nextLine();
    	String outputText = inputText+"is Shit: ";
     
    	System.out.printIn(outputText);
    }
    }

    you have used a capital i instead of a lower case l in the println method. This method name is short for print line, so it should read:
    System.out.println();
