Persistence is the key to success. You CAN learn Japanese!
Do we have an actual WaniKani shill hanging out in these threads? As in a WK employee with financial interest in WK's fiscal success?
DJT is pretty well known around 4chan and Reddit, both of which are large internet communities with a lot interest in Japanese, possibly even visited by the bulk of potential WK customers. DJT has shat all over WK and laughed at people stupid enough to actually use an inferior version of Anki that you have to pay for. It's undoubtedly lost them a fair bit of money. If I were a member of WK management, I'd definitely consider DJT's attitude towards WK to be a problem, especially during NYR season.
We believe in the Australian promise; that if you work hard, you won't be left behind.
>Hey guys, I was thinking about using WaniKani. Does anybody have any experience with it?
>gets two posts telling him to fuck off to Reddit
>gets another two posts telling him that it's an inferior version of anki
How many times have you seen this happen in DJT?
>new learner enters DJT
>sees shitting on WaniKani
>crosses it off of their list of things to use forever; grabs anki instead
How many times do you think this has happened?
A large community hating your product has an influence on sales, whether you realize it or not.
This coincidentally changed right around the end of December. NYR season.
DJT has never, ever been pro-WK. Last year's NYR season didn't do anything to change this at all. Yet suddenly, there's something resembling a debate? With the WK side largely trying to downplay and ignore the criticisms made against WK, that being that they artificially limit your progress, don't let you have control over your own deck, and that this is obviously done in the name of making you pay them more money (around the range $200 by the time that you finish, assuming that you don't miss sessions on the regular basis), and that the only reason to pay for it is because you're too stupid to learn how anki works and are so bad with your money that you can't figure out how much a monthly fee will eventually add up to?
It's really fucking suspicious. Either the WK supporters are actually all trolls, or there is a group of WK shills ITT.
I really like this book "Chuukyuu Nihongo Bunpou Yoten Seiri Point 20" cause how it arranges and explains similar grammar points but it's a pity that there's no 上級 version.
Is there some similar grammar book like this but for 上級? I tried 総まとめ but it's kind of lackluster compared to this one.
Eh, WK's main audience is normies. As in, people who plan on taking college courses, meeting tutors, practicing writing and enjoy "nice communities." Even if people bash on WK here it's pretty easy to ignore since all of 4chan basically hates everything and DJT cant even agree on the best way to use Anki.
I can tell you what I do know:
When I finish Core 6k, it'll be about 8-9 months after I started it. The fact that this isn't as fast as some is even more of a testament to how slow WK is compared to how fast you can be when you're motivated in anki.
I'm about to start writing production. I estimate that it will take 3-4 months, and given what I've learned to date, I can't see myself floundering. Again, using anki.
So, 10 months or so for 2200 kanji and 6k words. How much did I pay for this? $200? $100 $10? No. I paid $0 to accomplish what WaniKani charges $200 *minimum* for in a faster time than WaniKani.
This isn't one of those things to "agree to disagree" on, like whether your favorite movie is actually good, or whether some untested policy with equal evidence for and against will work. WK is inferior to anki by every objective measure. There's no reason to use it.
This person said DJT made WK lose money. I seriously doubt that since speed based NEET language learners aren't WK's audience. They want it to be influential so it can feed their WK paranoia.
Translation note: WK includes more real kanji as radicals than Kangxi does. So the radical counts are inflated compared to a Kangxi deck.
Oh, that's what you're talking about.
It's very common for company employees to astroturf in reclusive communities that shit all over them. Especially on 4chan.
I don't know about "lose money" in the way you're reading it. Anon is very obviously referring to opportunity profit.
>I seriously doubt that since speed based NEET language learners aren't WK's audience.
Believe it or not, DJT is not all "speed based NEET language learners".
Post the greentext instead.
>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
WaniKani is an inferior RTK clone that locks normalfags in with pretty colors and funny memes like "The narwhal bacons at midnight xD". Anyone that falls for that on their own isn't worth saving, but I won't stand for people shilling for it. The lock-in means even an intelligent person who was only momentarily deceived will become biased in favor of it.
>My only interests were selfish ("pretentious?") poem criticism and rooting through garbage.
This second sentence though. I don't get it. What is 字面 referring to exactly?
問題に発展しそうだ? This seemed to become a problem?
Oh right, I forgot.
After I finish Core 6k, I can continue reviewing for as long as I want at no charge. I can even move my mining decks into Core 6k and have just one deck. As long as I'm using anki, I'll
After you stop paying WK, you're out on your ass. If you want to review what you've learned, you have to start over, likely using, guess what, anki! What you should have been using from day 1!
If it were the only game in town that did anything along the lines of what it does, it wouldn't be ideal, but it would probably still be the best way to go.
However, it becomes terrible when you consider that the ideal actually does exist, and that it doesn't charge you $200 to show you all of its content, which cuts off at an intermediate level, and then throw you out on your face. On the contrary, it's a tool that can be used however the user likes, and for as long as the user needs it, at no charge. There's no reason for WK to even exist when anki and Core decks are a thing.
looks like its time to update those word filters
WK offers nothing that you can't do with anki. Just use Core and KD, and you pretty much have WK.
If you're so lazy that you would drop $200 and delay your results because you couldn't be assed to spend 30 minutes to figure out how to use a program properly, that's a big personal flaw that you need to get over. If you're so lazy that you have to pay $200 to keep yourself motivated, that's possibly an even bigger flaw. If you need a support group, the WK community is like surrounding yourself with fat people who go out to get pizza after the gym when you're trying to get fit. You'd do better to surround yourself with ripped /fit/izens who will boost your confidence and make you sure of your ability to reach your goals. In either case, the solution isn't to run to WK to pay them to accommodate your flaws, the solution is to stop being a fucking idiot.
Have you purchased your very own hug box yet?
I think this model would suit your needs pretty well.
Also, if you benefit from being robbed of all ability to plan and tweak your learning based on your own personal needs, your life pretty much fucked.
Diet and exercise? Fucked.
Career? Forever stuck as a lacky, and probably not even ideal in that regard.
If WK sounds better to you on account of the idea that you want to have your hand held every step of the way, it's time to take a good look at yourself.
99% of the cards in that deck are extremely common. There's nothing sucky about it. On the contrary, compared to a mined deck which could potentially have rare words all over the place in the beginning, it's good to have those words stacked at the front.
Reminder that you can learn Japanese. 頑張って
Anyone hoodwinked into using WK will just end up crushed by it's pace, anyway.
Money isn't the issue, Anki is just better as SRS and as flashcards. Remember, you CANNOT edit cards in wanikani or choose which cards to learn in WK, that's the deal breaker for me, even ignoring the SRS faults. Though this has been discussed to death by now.
Imagine 100 puzzle pieces
Every day you learn 1 piece
you will know 10% of the puzzle after collecting 10 pieces, but won't know 90%
languages learning is kind of like that. it won't be long before you understand 10% of stuff you encounter. it'll be awhile before you understand 95%-100%
8 months in Wanikani. I can understand words like "oishi" and "bakemono" but anything else is too complicated and gets mixed up. Rumor has it that it picks up further so I think I'll be able to understand more soon.
1) Shoulda gone chiitrans lite brah
2) Fiddle with settings, you can make it look like pic related I'm sure
The important thing is time spent in WK is essentially time wasted. That's more important than... spending $5?
I said essentially. I don't think Wanikani is *that* bad. I just think it's worse than Anki and less effective, so in the first place using it is wasting time. Especially since you'll end up on Anki in the end anyway.
You won't fail if you use Wanikani, it's not a meat grinder like RS. But it is pretty much objectively worse than an existing tool, so there is literally 0 reason to use it as far as I can tell. It'd just be a waste of time.
I'm being serious.
You have to study every day. Learn new words, study grammar, do reading practice. It's as hard as you make it, and the harder you go the faster you learn. You can take it somewhat easy and still succeed though.
VNs were by far the most important part of successfully learning Japanese for me because they were the only things I could keep focused on reading. Good luck.
I couldn't handle that setup. I need everything centered.
>Also, what happened to the kanji of the day?
You're like 2-3 years late
the guy who did that quite the thread, no one else cares
That was a fake setup I made for demonstration purposes. I ended up with the texthooker the top right though. That way I wouldn't look at the hooker instead of the actual text. At the time I used furigana, so it was tempting.
Was fapping to this but no idea what this line is trying to say with those 押せば / 押してbits. If you push/force it yourself everyone will know, so try doing it yourself? The fuck?
For context he's blackmailing her after finding out she was a webcam slut under the name みなつ while normally she's shy and timid, as on the previous dialogue segment I put in there.
You realize that it's not just $5, right? Or is your brain incapable of thinking further than a few minutes into the future, like a dog?
If you were offered a $150 product, but they stated that you could pay in $5 increments, is that $5, or is it $150? When you're done paying, how much money have you spent? You could have spent that $150 on literally anything else, too. A nice new jacket? $150 towards a SSD? Your savings, which you could have used to pay your electricity bill before it got shut off because you're horrible with money?
That's what WK is doing. It's not a $5 or a $10 product. It's a monthly fee which will add up to a fairly noteworthy amount before you're done. They artificially limit your progress in order to make sure that they get at least the REAL full cost of their product... which impacts you not only financially, but also in that it takes what could be a 6 month task and turns it into a 18 month task. You're just another sucker who wasn't smart enough to see through their wording. You could have passed the N1 before you finished WaniKani and been out $0. Instead, you paid $100+ and are 4000 words behind. Also, if you want to review, I hope that you're ready to continue paying that low, low monthly fee until you're done with flash cards!
Favorite word of the day: 臥薪嘗胆
「がしんしょうたん」To do anything to get your way.
There's no camera or anything in the scene though, and recording isn't mentioned there, doesn't seem to make sense.
Here's a link to the gallery if more context might help someone figure this out: http://g.e-hentai.org/s/13692a58b8/720749-59
Tried asking this a couple of times last week but no one knew, guess I'll try again.
How would I go about saying,"I hope X did/didn't happen" when the event is in the past but you don't know the outcome. E.g. "I hope it didn't rain on your way here". Instinctively I'd go 雨が降らなかったといいです but apparently that's not grammatical, and doesn't seem to be any なかったといい on google besides when it's used as 言い. And 雨が降らなかったらいいです as the -たら conditional form doesn't seem to convey tense, and if I go 雨が降らなかったら良かった that expresses regret at something that did happen.
So how the shit do I do it?
People like you tend to be poor no matter how much money you make.
You want to hear the secret to not being a poorfag? DON'T THROW AWAY MONEY LIKE YESTERDAY'S GARBAGE. Prioritize. Consider what you need. Then consider what you really, really want. Spending money on anything else should be a moderately rare occurrence.
You don't need WaniKani. You shouldn't even want it. It's a waste of money, and a waste of time.
>furigana that isn't the actual reading
had to draw that shit out with my mouse in google translate, why are the japanese so intent on making their language infuriating to learn
Mine is like yours, except I use chiitrans and disabled any color formatting / furigana (so the texthooker is just plain text) and I have the browser open to the right with DJT and a tab with just a textbox to copy paste stuff from the texthooker to mine words with rikai.
How do you shill /against/ the /only/ thing that /costs money/?
Second, I'm definitely the most vicious anti-wanikani poster and I haven't even done anything this thread except for post the greentext and >>135737066
>Anki has a 20$ phone app
Yeah, if you have an iOS device. You can also use ankiweb on an iOS device. You can always use anki for free, period.
>and is probably going to make desktop anki paid in some form in the future
Locking down FOSS? Good luck with that. Stop posting about things you literally know *nothing* about.
Here's another way that you lose money that likely flies right over your head because you don't see money as finite, don't understand budgeting, and don't see further than the current pay period: Do you have any financial goals regarding Japanese? Are you planning to apply it to your career, for instance?
WK can delay you by a year or more. That's a full year that you could have enjoyed a larger paycheck. And as the saying goes, time is indeed money. Beyond the initial cost of the product, how much did the delay brought about WK cost you? $5k? $10k?
There has to be a way to specifically state it as a wish/desire, not just two questions, surely Japanese isn't that lacking in flexibility.
Surely someone here is N1 and everyone isn't here just to argue about wanikani bullshit rite?
Locking down FOSS? Good luck with that. Stop posting about things you literally know *nothing* about.
Depends how much it was. If it was something like $20 I'd still pay for it instead of WK. If WK were free but I still had to use the site instead of Anki, I still wouldn't use it. Hell, I'd still pay the $20 for Anki if I had to in that situation. If it were a subscription for Anki, then I'm sure someone else would make a flashcard program that's close to as good.
but isn't he/she like the only native, or do we have more lurkers..watching
You mean natives would just say 降られましたか? to express "I hope it didn't rain on your way here"?
Okay, will remember along with >>135737212 I suppose, shame this language can be so limited at times.
I just finished Tobira, can read common words that use a little over 1300 kanji and am currently living in Japan. I was planning on taking the N2 this year, but I want to go straight for N1. How difficult would it be to pass it in that time?
There isn't any context that could change the meaning from "If you press here, everything you've done thus far will be sent to everyone... try it", it's a very clear sentence.
>Its destroying me but im having more fun than I do usually when reading
Its almost like im brand new at japanese again with all these new words
How long would I need to get to a level where I can understand most of the hentai manga there are with only little help from a translator? I don't want to speak or write the language at all, I just want to be able to read it on a certain level.
Just hentai manga? I can read some doujins and I've literally done nothing but watch english-subbed anime, read half of tae kim's basics section, and extensively read wikipedia to the point where I don't think there's much left I can learn about japanese linguistics without being fluent.
Most of it with only little help? Probably a year at the very least assuming you don't study constantly, while it's not exactly the deepest of literatures even hentai requires knowing kanji and grammar.
"All kanji include furigana. Easy vocabulary. Good to start with."
This is the description for Hanahira in the reading list, yet I've seen no furigana in this game so far, forcing me to understand the vocals to find out the meaning of some words, which can be hard sometimes, especially when the MC can't make a difference between あandお.
Is there more than one version of the game? Am I doing something wrong? Are furigana actually only on rare kanji? Is the reading list wrong?
I just want to enjoy an beginner tier VN after my daily Anki, grammar and kanji drilling. ;_;
>which can be hard sometimes, especially when the MC can't make a difference between あandお.
I get this. I really do. But I'll help.
The japanese お can be anywhere from o to ɒ, though it's usually ɔ. The japanese あ can be anywhere from a to ɑ, though it's usually ä.
Here's the tricky part: Most english dialects have lost the distinction between a and ɑ. And we don't have ɒ at all, so it just sounds like ɑ. Everything from a to ɒ sounds like ä to us. And our o is a range between o, ɔ, and ʌu; it doesn't go to ɒ.
You just have to get yourself used to ɒ indicating o instead of ɑ.
Thing is, she's reading あ as ɒ.
Maybe it is just because she's still half asleep, or maybe moe lolis have a weird dialect, but it's definitely ɒ, no matter how many times I repeat the vocals.
Plus my native language is French, which I think doesn't give as many difficulties to understand the Japanese pronunciation.
She probably isn't, you're just a deaf cunt.
I really don't understand why listening ability is so terrible here. Haven't you all been watching anime for years?
I guess ESL retards explain it, never seen an Anglo complaining about speech.
I only read until Amane wakes up. No point reading further when I just started Tae Kim and Anki, especially with the lack of furigana.
5th line of the game, 「あれ？私、布団かけてない」, if that あ is a ɑ and not a ɒ, then yes, I'm most likely deaf. But you'll most likely won't check because you're just here to enjoy shitting without knowledge of what you are talking about.
Sounds like it's a slightly late audio cut-in, but that's clearly still an あ, and it's much closer to an ɑ than a ɒ. おれ sound like ɒ, and that's very clearly distinct from あれ.
I don't know if it's just a Frenchy thing where you don't have good ears or something, or you haven't listened to enough dialogue to be able to differentiate fucking vowels.
This is my problem: it thinks it's already activated. I think I tried breaking the activation with regedit and ruined it worse.
Yeah that whole line is rotated to ɑ and o, no problems here.
Well I guess I am deaf then.
I still want to know why the reading list lied to me about the game having furigana or how do I get them if I can actually have them.
Is there any real beginner VN with furigana or will I need to stick to reading manga until I get a good kanji knowledge?
I forced it to boot into "safe mode with cmd" by holding f8 inside the VM's bios and selecting the obvious options to get there. Then I ran Rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk which resets the activation period to 30 days from now (apparently).
Thanks Anon, this one works nicely (except it gives a 403 forbidden error but it reads and translates anyway so I don't care). Now I can learn Japanese and use Chiitrans instead of waiting 4 years for a VN to be translated.
>I bet your funny accent makes you so salty, which is why you have to invent shit like this.
You stupid faggot this is what happens when an anglo tries to speak anything other than his own "language".
Every single other country has no problems in pronouncing the 2 sounds the jap language has.
i feel like id be disturbed if they didnt laugh, either they're deaf or dont give a shit
if they really want a chuckle id be happy to pull down my pants for a gander at the microcock
>I only read until Amane wakes up. No point reading further when I just started Tae Kim and Anki, especially with the lack of furigana.
You might be wrong. I started reading visual novels when I was just starting out with RTK, no prior grammar/vocab knowledge, and I learned a lot. It's a bit difficult at first, but after some time you start recognizing certain words and it gets easier. As I read, I was adding cards with whole sentences and furigana (taken from jisho, AGTH/ITH help a lot with looking up words since you can just copy them). They were mostly production cards for kanji with extra vocab explanations on the back.
While it might not work for everyone, I find this way much more enjoyable than the usual textbook drills.
Yeah, it is not needed to know a lot of vocabulary and kanji before starting, as long as you got ITH or Chiitrans, but I want at least to have grammar's basics done with because unlike kanji and vocabulary, grammar isn't simple to fully understand just by reading manga and VN.
What's this あざと grammar construct mean? All I can find is あざとい which seems to be unrelated.
IT IS TOO LATE NOW
YOU WAITED TOO LONG

Can't escape the ash, bud. The entire planet would die within a couple years from famine / drought / war / exposure. Only people in well stocked underground bunkers are going to be able to wait it out.
No worries, guys. Trump will come up with a plan to fix Yellowstone.
Say you know that there's a 70% chance you will skip your reps once this week. You also know that there isn't any day in which you are particularly more or less likely to skip them (just assume that's true), and that you'll never skip your reps more than once a week. What is the chance that you will skip them tomorrow?
Literally all you need is a couple of years worth of food, and if you don't have a bunker filled with a few thousand tins at this point, you might be a fucking moron.
In terms of cost, it's a few hundred dollars to have enough food to last you a few years.
The choice is between a boring old lady that is likely a criminal and THE MASTER OF MEMES that frog posts on twitter while running for President
Trump is far more interesting and so he has my vote.
Trump would get literally nothing done, neither side of congress likes him and would shoot down the retarded bills he proposes before they leave his office.
actually, I hope he wins so that by the end of his four year term we can look back and laugh at /pol/ for thinking he would revolutionize america.
>neither side of congress likes him
He doesn't need congress to like him, he just needs them to fear him and he can find plenty of creative and interesting ways to do that.
Most of what we need to fix the immigration probably is already on the books anyway. If we had a president that would enforce the laws already on the books then the problem would take care of itself for the most part.
Because whatever Trump may be, he is not a politician. People appreciate that. He speaks his mind, even if it's not politically correct or outright racist. People appreciate that because even the most ardent progressives, if they look deep down, have to admit that they'd rather live around whites and minorities that act like whites than somewhere infested with violent negroes, violent cholos, and anti-Western Muslims.
That's kind of where I am. If it comes down to Hillary vs Trump, might as well vote for Trump. At worst they have equal chances of damaging the country, but at least Trump would be entertaining while doing it.
What if I put it this way? Since you will never skip more than once, there are only 8 possible outcomes to the week: you skip on Monday, you skip on Tuesday, [...], you skip on Sunday or you don't skip at all. Each of them has a certain probability of happening and the must all add up to 100%. The probability that you don't skip is 30%, since there's a 70% chance you will skip, and the remaining seventy percent must be equally distributed among the remaining candidates because you're assuming none of them is more likely to happen than the other, so there's a 10% chance of each outcome happening, hence a 10% chance you'll skip them tomorrow.
Geologist here. Science journalism in the UK is even worse than in the US. The report that article refers to doesn't even mention Yellowstone other than to say the last eruption there was 640,000 years ago. The report claims a 5-10% probability for a VEI7 event anywhere in the world during the 21st century. Those numbers seem to be pulled directly from somebody's ass, but even so the last big Yellowstone eruption was a VEI8, which are at least an order of magnitude less frequent.
There is no evidence for another major caldera-forming eruption at Yellowstone any time soon. There have only been two intercaldera periods in the last 2.4 million years, which isn't enough to reasonably estimate recurrence intervals. The USGS puts the probability of another major caldera-forming eruption ever happening at Yellowstone 0.0001%.
I get everything from NT, if I can't find it there I buy it.
Yes I could search on PD but I'm not going to host 40GB of CP, encrypted as it may be, on my machine. The fact that PD is closed-source makes it even less reliable. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.
Seriously, I can't tell if you're shilling or just thinking you're that smart kid who posts all the cool memes on 4chan and makes people pissed, but you should kill yourself either way, so just do it quick.
>US 600$ + shipping
Ah man, I said if it was over $500 I'd chip in up to $100, now I have to give a whole $100.
>ありません isn't an adjective...
Why would that matter?
The day I completely master all of this I will be Japanese.
>Know all of these and how to seperate them
>Still get slightly nauseaus/sweaty palms when confronted with these images
I honestly dont remember all the radicals but writing frequently help me distinguish similar kanji
Take too much time with that.
Images like that are pretty pointless outside of the "neat" factor though, our brains can and do contain tens of thousands of different words and concepts as well even if listing them all in a single image would make it look utterly impossible. 99% of them are just dormant and wake up when they're needed, same deal with learned kanji.
It's also why associating abstract images like letters, numbers, kana and radicals with physical objects is such a powerful technique used by pretty much all memory champions, as long as there's something that can be easily pictured the brain can just conjure up the necessary images as they're needed no matter how many of them there are.

Turn the shitposting into studying. That's what I'm doing. Go read material about one of the shows and bring up some obscure production or character fact that barely anyone knows about. Then profit. I'm literally reading year-old material about the original content pertaining to a current season adaptation.
1 - Feel free to pause new cards and spend some time just with reviews. Even if you're not adding new cards, you're still learning what's in your reviews, so you're making progress.
2 - Make sure you're not tabbing out of anki a lot, that can make it seem like you're spending more time in Anki than you are since it records time in the background. Some people talk about spending an hour or so in anki a day but when they stop tabbing out it only takes 10 minutes. Make sure you're not in that group. (press "deck" to stop recording time before tabbing out).
I'm usually not quick to judge a season. I'm just going to be optimistic and do what I do every season and try the first episode of nearly everything and then just drop what I don't like by the first few eps. My taste is shit/broad enough that I usually end up watching 15-25 shows a season depending on how good the season is.
It makes sense when you consider the format. You buy 1 weekly/monthly magazine and it has chapters for like 20 manga or whatever. Then you share it with your friends. It's not like buying 10 $20 Tankobons for every manga you wanna read..
>I seem to be easily swayed by other people and end up dropping out of my reviews sometimes
How are people tempting you to drop out of your reviews? Are they chastising you for being a weeb?
Make the rational decision to do it, not like some magical habit spell will force you to do reps every day. You have to decide to them each day.
I've been doing it for TWO YEARS, 600+ days, and I still wake up not feeling compelled to do anki. But I do it cuz I know it helps my Japanese a lot. You have to make the decision every day. You have the freedom to choose whether or not to do it.
If you want to avoid the problem, you can try rushing them in the morning before you even have the opportunity to be swayed by other people.
They just ask to play things or start a conversation, I naturally go with that and end up doing fuck all.
I actually had that going but over the past month I have been feeling strongly about it but have been shying away.
Just stop being a spineless loser and simply do it.
Repeated use of reaction images is neither against the rules nor avatarfagging.
I have the freedom to tell you to kill yourself.
I didn't identify myself, you did, and even then I still don't have any identity beyond "guy who sometimes posts a particular reaction image" and if you're gonna get upset about that why not whine to >>135731146 >>135731415
and>>135731114 before me?
Read porn, for example nukige and ero-manga, they're actually good practice.
In my experience environment often matters more than anything else though. I couldn't keep my attention on LOGH until I had it zoomed in Firefox with rikai ready.
Those posters are retarded and should be banned but they aren't obnoxious idiots who not only thing they have good advice but are special enough to post the same fucking image each time when you get up on your soapbox, straddling Mt. Stupid.
Fuck off to a forum you can assign an identity to.
You think I re-use reaction images because I'm special? I think you're the special ones here. I also think it's ironic that you say I'm on a soapbox when you're the one shouting from one now. Irony in it's fullest.
In short, no, I will not fuck off, but feel free to whine every time you see an image used more than once.
Anon who did Mayuri, Amane, and Kururi's routes. Just finished Sakurako's route (spoilers in pic related, don't look if you haven't done Sakurako's route). Maybe it was because it resonated with me, but that was easily my favorite route so far. It hit me much heavier emotionally than the other routes did. Especially towards the end and with pic related.
It also made a fair bit of progress with connecting to the other routes and the overarching story. I'd post a bit more specifics, but I'm afraid some absentminded anons will mouseover and spoil themselves on stuff. A couple of my theories seemed to have been confirmed, but a couple new questions arose during the route that never got answered. I assume they'll be answered in
Suzuno's route. It's nice seeing it all slowly come together. Very solid route altogether. I'd recommend reading it after Mayuri's route though.
Next up is Yui. Maybe at this rate I can finish the VN within the next week or so.
On a studying related note, my reading speed has greatly increased and it's taking much much longer to reach my daily mining quota under my current mining criteria, which feels pretty great. It used to only take maybe 15 minutes to find 60 new words, now it takes at least a few hours to find 40 under the criteria I've been using. It feels pretty good, but I know I'll get knocked right back on my ass with the next VN and/or when I step into a new setting.
This. We should also be more careful to always switch around the style of our posts so as to not make it identifiable through techniques such as word frequency analysis. I mean, if you're not at least running every post you make through some program that checks to see if you don't have a tendency to use certain words more than others and compensating for that, you might as well have a tripcode for all you care about anonymity.

I did a poll awhile back asking if I should stop posting it and it only got around 10-15% votes to stop.
Also for future reference I'm not >>135759632. >>135731114 is the only time I post a YuYuYu related image in the threads.
Yes, but I don't know your fetishes, so I can't really give good recommendations. I like big tits, rape, mindbreak, etc, but do you? You're best off just going after the big companies with actual budgets (Lilith, Bishop, Ateleir Kaguya, May-Be Soft etc etc) and looking through their catalogs.
The order I'm doing is
Mayuri -> Amane -> Kururi -> Sakurako -> Yui
From what I've heard, Yui is supposed to be saved for last.
The order I followed was mostly just because I was most interested in Mayuri, an anon recommended I did Amane next, and I was more interested in Kururi than Sakurako. I'd recommend reading Sakurako at some point after Mayuri, but aside from that and reading Yui last I imagine any order is okay.
You seem to be the only one bothered by the Yuuna. Perhaps you think the blogs or even your silly comments are contributing more? If it bothers you so much, make a poll and you'll see for yourself. Mind you, it's already been done.

Dude, don't be a pussy. You're going to be a loser forever if you let other people's whims dictate your actions.
Trump doesn't do that and that's why he's a winner.
Because the number of strokes in a kanji is not a strong determinant for neither of the following.
- The complexity of its meaning.
- How common it is.
- How easy it is to memorize.
- How early it is taught to kids.
So stop being a whinny bitch and just learn that shit. 曜 was one of the first kanji I learned and I didn't stop for one second to whine about it.
S-Senpai admonished me!
the point is you're not supposed to just memorize them as soon as they're first used. Look over the list at the beginning of the lesson, write them down a couple times each if you think it'll help you remember(hint: it will), then just read through and refresh your memory as you need(there's a reason you can hover over every kanji on the site and it'll give you the meaning/reading). Over time you'll find yourself remembering them simply through exposure. Focus on learning the grammar(as that's the important part of the guide), and a good amount of kanji will come with it. For actually learning any significant amount of kanji you should be using anki anyways.
>Focus on learning the grammar
Thank you senpai, that's what I thought. I've already spent hours today writing the kanjis Anki threw at me, so I thought maybe I could now concentrate on the grammar writing things out in hiragana for the sake of time.
The memorization part seems to be less painful this way.
Stop bullying, I just want to know what works best.
If I'm having trouble remembering new cards because anki gives me lots each day with the same kanji, might it be a good idea to change the settings so that new cards are selected by random from all over the deck? That way I won't be constantly mixing up definitions.
