>make joke with tutor about kanji
>act self-effacing and humble in the hopes that he'll say something like "not at all! These look pretty good!"
>this happens instead and I'm not sure what he's implying
Is he encouraging me to practice more (because my kanji are ugly) or expressing surprise/impressed that I'm practicing?
I'll be the first to agree that they're not perfect but I feel like I improved a lot since the first one. I'm not going to argue that my kanji are beautiful because they're not; my main question is in regards to what the Japanese guy means.
He said himself that he knows they're bad.
Persistence is the key to success. You CAN learn Japanese!
let me add this, you are drawing it completely wrong. no matter how much you "practice" you won't get better because you're literally practicing drawing it wrong.
let me help you
I spent 1 year doing nothing but a small amount of anki and some light Tae Kim reading. Took the whole year to finish Core2k pretty much. I then spent 1 year kicking it up a notch and reading hours a day. So I want to say, "I've only really been studying for 1 year" to make myself feel better about however progress I have, because "I can't understand X but I've only been studying for 1 year" sounds better than the same with 2 years. What do you think, everyone?
I've only lived for 3 years. I say 3 years because I spent 18 years believing in god, whom I forsake during my 19th year after birth. I've only spent 3 years living as an Atheist, and quite frankly, I don't want to let anyone know that I was ever Christian.
Ah, I see what you mean.
Also dis nigga ain't me
Can someone help me identify this katakana. At first I thought it was トス but the middle line on the ト would have gone the other way.
10,000 words, 2,610 kanji, many books read.
I didn't do listening practice for the entirety of both years though (just started today) so barely being able to follow 実況s on youtube and completely failing to follow the two lines spoken in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBkMljyAmng makes me feel bad. Ergo, defensively saying "1 year" instead of "2 years". Though, of course, I'm only half serious and don't actually think making a distinction like that is a meaningful thing.
I'm going to go with ト because I searched for "heartbeat" on jisho and found どくん which is probably what those two other things are considering that's a still beating heart being pulled out of someone's chests.
>What do you think, everyone?
I wish people would stop using the same handful of reaction images all the fucking time.
>Compare the kanji on Jisho with the handwritten ones in the picture
Kanji looks different in print than it does written by hand?
>I never mentioned stroke order by the way
That is what I gleamed from these two posts
Anyway, pic related is a small assortment of actual Japanese writing and the following link shows print and handwritten forms:
To say that anon's 髪 was "completely wrong" is a pretty fucking stupid statement. Let me guess, you've been studying for a few months and know it all? Have you had to read hand written notes in Japanese written by a native before, anon? I'm guessing not, judging by your reaction. Basically people here look for chances to shit on the output of people, just like you've done to that anon.
>Have you had to read hand written notes in Japanese written by a native before, anon? I'm guessing not
Not him but it's pretty true. I can read 800 Kanji + but reading Hiragana when my friend write them is already challenging. Kanji differ pretty when written by hand and also native speakers tend to make shortcuts or what one maybe would call a mistake. But native speakers don't like at every stroke at the Kanji, they look rather at the appearance and read it. So his 髪 should be easy to read even though one stroke is not right.
My handwriting in high school was so awful even my teachers couldn't read it. I'd have to type and print everything. So, all these "can you read native handwriting" discussions are always laughable to me due to how subjective and variable it is.
I think the main thing is that the image he replied to wasn't even in the list of images he linked
>I think the main thing is that the image he replied to wasn't even in the list of images he linked
Jesus fuck you are an autist, aren't you?
The main thing is that you retards post the same shit over and over with the slightest variance to keep it as pedestrian as possible in order to keep in-line with the accepted posting group think and not stand out.
You're predicable and boring, like any other sperg.
Not him but the name deck is interesting. Where do you get the names from? Manga or a website? I also want to start learning names soon, but I'm not sure yet how to approach it, maybe you got some tips?
>To say that anon's 髪 was "completely wrong" is a pretty fucking stupid statement. Let me guess, you've been studying for a few months and know it all?
very stupid and wrong guess faggot.
calm down. in your zeal to diss someone on /djt/, you forgot to actually consider the material in question.
the handwritten form in your very own link only reinforces my assertion that he is practicing writing the character incorrectly.
specifically, in anon's "practice" you can see that the three strokes in the upper right are "nestled" inside of the upper left component, a major error that makes his writing look autistic as fuck. hence the reaction of his japanese study partner.
It's a machine TL. Just turn all that machine translation shit off and possibly the word highlighting and furigana too. I usually just copy the text from the texthooker into my browser and look up stuff through that since sometimes chiitrans parses stuff incorrectly and you can't highlight the word you need.
The deck purely exists as a way to inflate my KanjiGrid so my advice in that area is not useful at all. I just put any name into it that I haven't seen used in a word. 慧・けい for instance. (I know words exist on jisho). Will this help me read names? No clue, I just want the kanji.
Cultural references: the final boss of language learning?
I am >>135598801 and >>135598440
Calm the fuck down dude, where did you get the assumption I was shitting on anyone?
Or, maybe, after he asked us about our opinion, not correcting him so that he'd keep on reinforcing a bad habit has become shitposting?
Yes, I have only been studying for a month or so, I studied that kanji today and I pointed out the way he was writing it was out of proportion compared to the standard form (not the print one).
Of course manual handwriting is going to look different, but when you learn you use the standard as an example, not deformed varieties.
Why is 終物語 not spelled as 終わり物語り? I mean, why were the okurigana omitted? Or is this just some literary art style?
I made this one myself. I hope you enjoy it.
I tried Re: but it felt like a really generic otome after the prologue, plus the really flimsy excuse for a "shinigami world" which was just a generic highschool infuriated me. Un: has a more interesting premise with the protagonist going to die in 30 days and it's overall shorter, meaning less filler. Pretty predictable, but cute and fun enough to read for a first VN.
Plus KENN has the most succulent voice in eternity, so that was a plus.
Yeah, go in and don't come out before 俺 tell you to, you little bitch.
Not being a complete poorfag what is a good way to get into learning moonrunes? Rosseta stone has a sale going on here and the reviews look good but I dont know how they are really for learning to read. I orderred genki and japanese the manga way but really only have like an extra hour or two a day to practice. Any tips? Downloading anki now.
Ignore him. You gave correct advice. Ironically, the link he posted (pic related) you actually supports exactly what you said.
Obviously he didn't actually look at the guy's handwriting, he just saw an opportunity to righteously blast off at someone, and took it.
He's an argumentative autist, most likely the same faggot who shitted up the last thread so badly. Just ignore him, seriously. He is incapable of admitting when he is in the wrong, even when he knows it.
>paying a sub for boring vanilla shit that they translate
Jacob is a nice guy and all but I'm not giving him a red cent. I'd prefer to keep my moon up to par so I can laugh at faggots that bitch about censorship while I read/listen to the original unfiltered material.
>mfw I understood this video without subs
>get a new word from reading a news article
>next day it shows up in core
>that door plate
It is a shitty app that artificially limits your ability to learn. Moreoer there is an anki version of wanikani deck. It is a meme response to dorks, never actually waste money on it.
>Contains literally wrong information
>Artificially limits your progress by making up radicals etc that don't exist
>Artificially limits your speed even if you want to faster; even if you go as fast as possible you can only go as fast as a normal anki user
>Locked in to it, you can't export your scheduling information
>Tells you whether you got something right, have to go outside the normal system to make "dad" a synonym for "father"
>The scheduling system is objectively inferior to Anki's
>Only customization is browser mods like scriptish
>Eventually ends and you're fucked if you want more content
Well I used to do translation with him as the host for my blog. He was cool enough to foot that bill and give me pointers as far as working my way into the scanlation scene. If not for that I would have had no money through college.
Commission money like a motherfucker. Now I've pretty much dropped it because I've got a real job that pays about $30 an hour so translating and editing a 30 page book for $50 seems like a waste of my time now.
Now I just need motivation to get back in practice. I can feel it slipping.
God damn it. Now this is stuck in my head.
>released a bunch of shit for free in english for authors that I liked that got zero attention and eventually because the ones people would dick ride
>took up commissions on request which were 90% material I wasn't interested in and nobody but the commissioner even gave a fuck about
Nah. I was doing a service to weebs with obscure taste in exchange for money. Most of what I did was free scanlation though.
What the fuck does ひろっとくわ mean? I get that he's probably saying if he sees her he'll do something but no dictionary or anything is showing anything relevant whatsoever. I've been running into this problem a lot. The past few pages have given me hell and I'm only getting started. Maybe I should wait and come back when I know more. Is he using わ like the feminine particle? I'm pretty sure he did it once on a previous page which confused me.
Nah. He took me on almost immediately after I started. Still just did free shit. Honestly I started to fall off around the time that he started localizing books instead of letting them be scanlated like everyone was used to. By the time the whole wanimagazine shit fest went down I was far from giving a shit and just kept doing free releases. Some of them even from bosshi because fuck the system.
Those are used by chuuni, so no.
I want to use something that is used by someone who is dismissed as useless rather than praised as a great man.
Thanks, there would be absolutely no way for me to figure that out. I did download the yotsuba pack last night but I haven't used the deck yet. I looked at the sentences to try and help decipher some things but there are only a few select sentences.
I know this isn't request but was wondering if someone could answer this for me: What does "majicka" mean? I hear Japanese say it when something doesn't go their way. I'm guessing it either means "damn it" or "almost had it".
Yeah, the joke is when you realize you learned 2000 over the course of a year and a half because you didn't crash and burn trying to do it all on your own with Anki.
It's cute that people on here think it's "hurting" people like Rosetta Stone though. I'm sure Kouichi loves the extra publicity.
>Yeah, I always avoid talking in first person but sometimes it's unavoidable.
Are you serious? You can't be serious
Posts like these are walking right on the fine line between blatant shitposting and someone who's just a retard. It's really confusing and I'm having a hard time telling who is genuinely defending it and who's just pretending to defend it because it's funny to them.
>~4 kanji / day
Seriously, I'm running out of air here.
I started out with anki and got so burned out and behind on my reviews I quit japanese. I came back a year later and decided to try again with rosetta stone and it was the best decision I ever made. Rosetta stone makes things understandable for an english speaker to comprehend, unlike tae kim who basically speaks korean to you the whole time with his examples.
Those sounds like it's used by kanji desu family.
I want something like the "I" of English language, it doesn't leave any impression when you hear it.
>I can make America great again.
>I love meaty cocks.
It sounds so transparent.
The "learning Japanese" meme has to stop. Japanese is not a western language and works based on completely different concepts, there is no learning involved.
What you need is a yamato damashii and good intuition. The scribbles(you call them kanji) are just aesthetics and have no semantics value, you are meant to feel the language.
lol. Yeah, giving people effective learning tools really burns you huh? Too bad DJT made it a meme without realizing it'd be the most effective tool for 90% of it's readers. It'll probably keep showing up more and more.
The easiest way to do this is to watch anime. Your brain will eventually start understanding words from context and then whole sentences, including grammar, just like children do
The difference is that it's easier to learn a language as a kid, After you turn 12 (?) or something it get's harder. If it were this easy everyone would just watch Animu. And even if what you said would work out, you still can't read nor write.
All that matters is that the paid version of WaniKani is shit and that if you want to use it you should use the superior illegally ripped and 100% free as in freedom anki deck version.
Much more efficient for the same content? Not really. WK divides everything into an easily digestable, step by step program with an attractive interface and nice community. Just accept it's not for you and move on from this silly anti-WK crusade.
It depends on how much you're learning and how much you've got on your card. I can do ten cards per minute because I'm only memorizing their general meaning and it's all I have on my card. After you count in reps and failed cards I only need 15 minutes or so to do my daily reps, and that's if I'm slow.
Horrible mnemonics for kanji
HORRIBLE community that thinks anything more than 10 new words a day is impossible
Elitist attitude that's even stronger than here: "I'm a higher level so I'm better than you"
I'm already way past the level where wanikani could do any good for me (yet anki never ceases to be a good tool). Trust the word of experience son, it's crap. Complete, undiluted, overpriced crap. Don't buy into the pretty interface, they're selling you something that's worse in every aspect compared to what you can get for free. The only advantage you get is that it saves you the minor hassle of setting up anki. If you think that's worth your money by all means be my guest, buy their crap, but don't come here shilling this shit as if it were any good cause that's just evil behavior. It benefits those conmans at Wanikani and it might harm the progress of serious potential learners.
It is real japanese. You should google it. It's basically real japanese, so often pretty formal and shit, but every sentence has a transcript on another page + at the end of the book is explanation for grammar if you haven't learned it. I think it's in one of the guide folders, I downloaded it some time ago if you are interested
WK is not supposed to BE Anki. Nobody says you can't use Anki at the same time, or use Wk for ten or so levels with the monthly plan then switch to anki once you know SRS and a having a regular review schedule works.
And I'm not "shilling" anything, I just think it's hilarious people think they're "tricking" people by showing them a website that'll learn a large amount of kanji in a respectable amount of time that works for 99% of learners.
People can look at the site and decide for themselves, just please, please, stop shitposting day and night about the ~evils~ of wanikani and do something goddamn productive with your time.
It's not a respectable amount of time, it's ridiculously slow.
It is tricking them because you can get everything they offer in a more customizable format for free, and without the stupid made up radical names which often have nothing to do with what they actually mean, a disservice to the learner who never gets to realize that those radicals are often working as a hint to the meaning of the kanji and will be completely lost in the future when somebody refers to the radicals by their actual names.
Finally, I seriously suspect you are quite literally shilling.
Ah, yes, that moment in Panty Quest XXII when the main character all start making food puns involving radical names. So common. I agree some of them are bad but they don't matter nearly as much as you're whining about them.
Anyway, this argument is getting boring so let's stop.
This confuses me. Is it saying "This is the extent of its story". "This was the extent of its story."?
is there a dictionary that points out the origin of foreign words in katakana? I can tell テスト comes from the english test, but then there's アンケート and other non-english words that aren't easy to tell their origin, let alone names.
I almost posted the exact same thing earlier. I thought having completed Hanahira and Flyable Heart that Read Real Japanese would be a walk in the park. I haven't finished the first page yet. All the であるs are messing with me, I'm just not used to it. I also tried to just follow along with the recording, but my eyes can't keep up because I'm not used to the vertical text and the fast speed.
I expect to learn a lot by going through it, but it will probably take awhile.
I also learned that a snipe(鴫) is a real animal. I know that "snipe hunting" is a prank, so I always thought it was just some imaginary creature.
I'm having the notion that different writing systems develop different muscles within the arms and hands, and that the damn nihonjin must have stronger muscles because of the complexity of stroke writing order. Is that also the reason why they draw a fucking lot?
i own both books, fiction and nonfiction. they're pretty educational.
As far as the fiction goes, that story about the bear is pretty boring
my favorites are ミイラ (really lewd tbqh) and 百物語
between the two, the nonfiction one is the harder read.
it's essentially a formal form of です. also you will see a lot of -り form as a conjunction where you would normally see -て or -し in dialogue. these are literary forms basically.
I know how you feel /a/non. I was reading the same page for over an hour to understand the grammar. It gets easier after this because you get used to it.
I tried to read another story. There was 'アバタもエクボ' written, which means 痘痕も靨 (love makes blind). Kinda surprising how they describe some things there
The horizontal lines are also kinda hard but you also get used to this.
>I also learned that a snipe(鴫) is a real animal. I know that "snipe hunting" is a prank, so I always thought it was just some imaginary creature.
I still don't understand this part. Where did you find it? I just skipped this because I couldnt make sence of it
I'm just now trying to move on to kanji, and I'm wondering what people's thoughts on KanjiDamage is. The guide says the introduction and certain aspects of the site are wrong; what aspects exactly?
I kinda wanted to try that out because I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing with the Heisig site. It's telling me to type in stories or some shit. I thought the stories would already be there for me to memorize.
I actually thought snipe came from sniper, not the other way around. I didn't realize I was wrong until yesterday when I was reading the Wikipedia article on snipes.
>it's essentially a formal form of です
Even though I know this, it still messes me up for some reason. I just need to read more and it will go away.
Just Google 鴫. It would have been easier if the author translated it as a sandpiper, I think that term is more common.
Use this site for RTK stories:
Follow along with the RTK ebook; you need it for the primitives and introduction. You don't need to use the koohii site at all.
That's one pretty girl right there.
It is in the CoR somewhere, and there is audio for all of the stories in the book.
I bought mine.
Reminder that the thread itself is misleading horrible trash for beginner level questions and that you should just pick resources / methods from the guide and find what works for you.
I hope guide anon finishes the new version soon, because with all the NYRs flooding in with all this shitposting and purposefully misleading posts, the threads are going to be pretty horrible for the next few months.
WaniKani is good, RTK is not good. It other words, fuck RTK.
Someone on lang-8 friended me and gave me a "line ID". What is that? Apparently it's an app?
I don't think anyone has ever said RTK was good. It really shouldn't be listed in the guide.
>Learn these stories so you can recall useless information that doesn't help you read at all!
Seriously. All these beginners start and quit within a month because they aren't using the right methods and following these suggestions. "Wankikani, RTK" just use Rosetta and be done with it.
Reminder that the anti-WaniKani sentiment is a view held by a small number of argumentative autists. /DJT/ easily becomes an echo chamber for some topics due to the low amount of original posters.
Just try them all and stick with the method you think it's best. For individual Kanji study, you've got the following options:
>Remembering the Kanji with Koohii stories
>Learn the radicals and learn Kanji through vocab
>Move on to vocab at once
No it isn't. WaniKani is literally shit for retarded normalfag redditors who don't mind spending over $200 on this >>135601218. The recent WK shilling isn't funny.
Something like RTK (which almost everyone just pirates, uses a deck for, and uses koohii stories or their own stories instead of Heisig's shit stories) or KD which actually works for people depending on what they want (usually handwriting and having an easier time with vocab) and they can go at their own pace instead of paying a subscription to be slowed to a crawl? Sure, I understand that, but the legitimate WK shilling needs to stop.
Getting motivated to consume content is getting increasingly difficult, even for stuff I want to read. Seems like all I end up doing is fapping to a nukige then wasting time for the rest of the day because nothing else holds my interest and is easy enough to be smooth going. I guess this is a weird position. I opened up an ero manga (http://exhentai.org/g/889420/a1efbbbf1f/) and read it without needing to look up a single word, or struggling with any aspect of the grammar. In a position like this, it's hard to know what to do. In the early days, everything is beneficial. But now, I have to seek out hard stuff or just not progress. But, it's hard to motivate myself to consume any of that. I just don't feel the drive. The only really challening content I'm consuming is JAVs and youtube videos, but in those I just let the voices drift through me, catching what I can, it doesn't feel constructive or beneficial at all. どうすればいいのか・・・
is there a limit on these things? I wish these cards would fuck off once they hit 1 year.
I see now. Thanks.
Since I never talk to anyone my conversational skills are going to suck but I'll never get better if I don't practice.
For anyone practicing production has there been anything you've done that proved to be helpful? Like maybe you memorized certain sentence patterns or something?
It doesn't matter that it works, you can get something better for free. That's like selling somebody a bottle full of air and justifying it by saying "Hey, this is real oxygen, it works!"
If you don't understand anything being said, you might aswell use English subs. You will still subconciously "absorb" shit and there are multiple people who learned Japanese from watching subbed anime
a 20mpg car with a 20mph speed limit will get you the same places as a 60mpg car with a 100mph limit. However, one is objectively better in every way. The only people who prefer the 20mpg car are those either ignorant of the 60mpg car's benefits, or those who are too stubborn to change despite knowing their way is less effective.
This may sound like a deceptive analogy. It's not. Wanikani is the same SRS system as anki, but objectively worse in all functionalities. No one who prefers WK has ever been able to offer a single valid reason for doing so, in fact most of their reasons end up revealing their ignorance of anki and how it works. Anti-wani sentiment is so strong because Wani is bad enough to deserve it, and is completely unable to defend itself because it's jus tthat bad in reality.
Alright, well maybe I can help narrow it down.
What would be the best option for someone who has about an hour or two a day to learn Japanese? It's kind of why I didn't like the look of the koohii site, it looked like it over-complicated things.
KanjiDamage promised it would simplify things and give me a concrete base understanding of things, but the guide said it has some misinformation. I didn't want to waste my time with it if it would work against me, which is why I was wondering what type of misinformation it is and how much of an impact it will have on my learning. But apparently, it's not too big a deal from what I'm seeing from other people.
Literally useless. If you want to pay for pretty colors go ahead, you're an idiot. The functionality of the interface itself is terrible because of all its limitations.
As has been said multiple times, your shit site is full of misinformation about what radicals signify. That's not helpful, it's harmful.
>It costs money so it's bad.
That's about what you'd expect from a site populated by mostly NEETs. Just take anonymous opinions with a grain of salt. You can try WaniKani to see if you like it anyway so all this arguing is pointless.
I don't like bringing money into it to avoid >>135607075
Anki has more customization options (such as new card amount + review limit) so it is safer than wanikani. Like I said, Wani has no defense.
>What would be the best option for someone who has about an hour or two a day to learn Japanese?
Read Tae Kim, find an Anki deck for vocab you like and do it. Read about japanese in general on the side all the time -- this will clear up a lot of confusion right out of the gate, without having to ask people for help. Kanji study is optional.
Or you could just drive the 60 mpg car at 20mph.
NO IT'S NOT IT'S EITHER A HANDFUL OF RETARDED TROLLS OR A BUNCH OF SHILLS EITHER WAY YOU SHOULD JUST LEAVE THE THREAD TO GO AND READ SOMETHING AND LET THE NYRFAGS ROT IF THEY'RE STUPID ENOUGH TO TAKE ADVICE FROM THESE IDIOTS INSTEAD OF READING THE GUIDE IN THE FIRST PLACE
>Filter Wanikani posters
>Don't reply to Wanikani posts
>Report Wanikani posts
They know that NYRfags are reading this thread, and they're spamming the shit out of the thread trying to drive up membership. This is in violation of Global Rule #11. I think it's time we apply it, given that this shit has gone beyond the odd referral here and there to outright 24/7 spamming. Either that or it's some kind of bullshit raid, either way, we need them silenced.
Could it be? Talk around the tea pot is all about you, opoooooooo. They say you've joined our ranks and will be training with us. Is that true?
If that is so, you'll need to confirm your account with us.
It's weird because. Well. I shouldn't say this to a new recruit but… "opoooooooo" is a name that gets thrown around a lot in the Crabigator Prophecies. I mean, it could be another opoooooooo but… no, I've said too much.
For now you are only a guppy. Floundering about on the sand, gasping for the radicals, kanji, and vocabulary knowledge you crave. You must learn these. Then you must pass the test to become a full member.
But where to begin? How about where all new recruits must start:
If you haven't already, do your first Lessons. This is where you will learn the foundation of kanji: The radicals. The other monks and I will watch you progress through the first three levels with great interest.
You must also read our sacred texts! Our most holy of books, "The WaniKani Guide," can be found below. Read it or you will never come to understand our beliefs. From the legend of "Spaced Repetition System" to the wise old story of "Mnemonics," you will learn what we are all about.
Read: The WaniKani Guide
Oh, and you must have questions, young guppy! They all do. I understand. Here is another sacred text that will help. Our fore-founders called it "The Frequently Asked Questions." But you can just call it "The FAQ" for short. It is filled with the questions of those that came before you.
Read: The FAQ
That's all for now, little guppy. We'll be watching your progress.
Representatives Of The Crabigator
Yeah I figured. Time to make myself look stupid.
As proprietor of CoR section 6, I ORDER you to stop shitposting.
Anyone want to join my sect?
It's pretty much out in the open though you shill scum. Unless you're trying to convince me the anons from DJT suddenly had a collective change of heart overnight and decided to defend wanikani openly 24/7, even though it was scarcely ever mentioned not long ago, and when it was it was only in the context of a joke about how ridiculous the idea of paying for that shit was.
Yan is so fucking cool in the LOGH novels. Did you know that Yan is his last name, and Wenli is actually his first name? No idea how I missed that. I thought I was misreading the text.
Anyhow, the only thing keeping me reading the novels (aside from the practice of course) is how fucking cool Yan is at all times, what a fucking bro, every scene he's in his so enjoyable to read. Reinharto is cool too.
No fucking point in wordfiltering. Self-moderation is the way to go since wordfilters are inherently useless (you can say wani kani or shit like that). Just be the bigger man and report and ignore.
If you had any wisdom in your heart, you would know that I'm right.
What is a "normalfag" comic?
What is the "wisdom of the heart"?
The only legitimate kind of wisdom a man can possess is knowing that he knows nothing else.
"What does rikaisama say"?
Rikaisama uses kanjidata from http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/kanjidic2/
Kanjidic2 meanings are based on common words that use the kanji.
Rikai calls it "interval" / "space". Interval should be a good definition for 間.
Me of course, how else would I get to engage with my japanese husbando.
What kanji is this?
I can read VNs without a texthooker.
So why can't I fucking watch anime without getting lost instantly? Fuck.
just remember, you're here forever
If I may interject for a moment, extensive reading and listening is recommended pretty much constantly here, to the point that some people even say read before doing Anki >>135587734 and perhaps never doing Anki. At worst, you've got folks who say always do Anki until fluency/native level (and perhaps beyond), but even they keep it secondary to reading/listening practice.
I get the feeling I'm bad at languages. This is 1 year w/ Core 6k

sorry but you're really not on a good path, you really should start reading ASAP. reading exposes you to a lot of vocab, far more than anki, and is very important to retention. Anyway, if you want actual advice on whether you're doing good or not, post all your stats.
That's right, you're exactly right. Naisu jobbu imouto
Help correct or improve my translation:
"However, because people are conceited and feel they are fine, even if given warnings the smartphone walking problem wont die out all at once". (its not the complete solution)
didn't think the other stats are important but alright
I hope so
I love reading but I hate textbooks with a passion, hope I'm not alone here. Also fuck homophones and 3+ character readings
You actually posted the second-least important stats.
You are barely doing any cards, holy shit. I think your problem isn't grammar. You just aren't really putting much time or effort into this it seems.
I'm going to assume you don't actually spend 78 seconds per card and that stat is inaccurate.
I now know 100 kanji after studying for like a week.
But the problem is I can't read them, although I know what they are. Am I doing something wrong?
What's the best way to study their readings?
I'm confused, how to use ga in certain sentence. I know ga is used generally. But sometimes it feels off when I read certain sentence like
Anyone can explain this shit to me?
median time is probably ~30 sec a card, I only add about 5 cards a day b/c any more and I struggle to remember a specific character's reading. I did 20 new cards a day for a short time and my daily review count quickly ballooned into the hundreds.
I see 3 different readings which can pretty quickly confuse things when it's 1 of 20 cards you see in a minute, or worse if you only learn one of these words every month or every other month. If I had a nickel for every word I knew because the kanji appeared in a different word with a different reading and I don't just mean On and Kun readings.
