Persistence is the key to success. You CAN learn Japanese!
Work hard, have fun, no drama.
My experience with Silverio Vendetta has really shown me that it doesn't matter what the fuck you read, as long as you switch up genres. Like seriously, the vocab is a bit harder than I'm used to but ultimately it's no big deal. If all you do is play moege or "easy" games that's pretty much fine as far as I can tell. You don't need to target "hard" games, really. Just be sure to mix it up with sci-fi and fantasy settings, or really any non-school setting, in order to not develop a SOL vocab bubble.
Also, it's still important to read real-life news articles, I think. Simply because it speeds up the process of picking up economic vocab considerably.
I'm a NEET and generally spend 99% of the year inside my house. The one night I like to go out is Thanksgiving night for Black Friday sales, which is pretty weird. Unfortunately, there wasn't a single deal I was interested in, so I am not going out. Kind of depressing.
What I was trying to say here is:
If you image all the vocab in Japanese as 20,000 words in a giant pool, every single work written in Japan equally accesses these 20,000 words. Every "easy" works has (potentially) the 20,000 words of Japanese. As long as you read enough of it you will really eventually accumulate all 20,000 words. It's not like "easy" stuff only access 10,000 and you need to read "hard" works to access the other 10,000. All 20,000 is in both "easy" stuff and "hard" stuff. It's just that "hard" stuff accesses more uncommon words at a much a higher percentage. If 厭う has a 1% chance of appearing in an easy work it has a 10% chance of appearing in a hard work. Either way, it's fine to just read easy stuff, in the end.
"This is obvious", some of you say. To which I reply, I know, I just wanted to type this anyway. This is mainly relevant become it comes to pass that you can read easy stuff 10x faster than hard stuff. At that point it'd be better to read hard stuff but if you wanna keep reading easy stuff it won't make a huge difference if you switch up genres and also supplement yourself with political and economic news.
20,000 isn't really much anyway. People need to stop seeing it as some overwhelming stack.
To begin with, an author using a wide range of vocabulary might make reading his writing somewhat tedious, but not necessarily harder to understand. Sure sometimes people here aver things like "Using a texthooker does not constitute "real" reading". By extension that means using a dictionary doesn't constitute "real" reading. However, I'm sure everyone here can remember authors even in their native language which, if you aspire to understand them properly, will necessitate grabbing a dictionary every other page, perhaps every other sentence even. It's a stupid sentiment. Of course some types of fiction just don't lend themselves to being read slowly, so you probably won't enjoy them unless you read at a decent pace.
I put "hard" in quotes to reflect that. Most people agree that Dies Irae is harder than Hanahira, and then poof, that descends into an internal division between "easy" and "hard" content.
Anyone watching Uta2? Is this mostly what Kansai-ben sounds like? Or are other parts of her speech that are just character-specific speech quirks?
It's not. Just look at how pathetic your core 6k looks too. I can't believe that some people are crying over this.
Because logarithmic scales are extremely deceptive when we measure things based on their dimensions and then think of that logarithmically. You're doing a logarithm in a logarithm.
That's not really much. All you've gotta do is learn 50 cards every hour, which is pretty easy. That's more than a minute for every new card, so you could just spend 50 minutes on new cards and the rest of the 10 minutes on reviews and other stuff, and then you just keep this pace all day, and then within the month, you'll have learned 36,000 words. That'll make you native level. There's really no excuse to not knowing Japanese. Anyone could do it in a month if you really wanted to.
He's pretty much shifting the goal posts, to use the phrase, so I reply firmly keeping them in place. I do read each post, think "that's not the point", and then re-state the claim he original denied (>>134022125). 20,000 words is a lot. Are they hard to learn? Do they take long to learn? I don't care, that's not the topic at hand. 20,000 is a lot. End of story.
Yeah, but you can't really touch a googol. That's like infinity divided by a little bit. But when you're talking about 20,000, then you're touching stuff. Like, that's a number could touch with my hands. And then, you've gotta think that you've gotta put all those things in your head. That's just, like a lot. I can't even imagine it even though it's a number that physically is true. Like, if you make a right triangle with a hypotenuse of googol, the other two sides just don't exist (and neither does the hypotenuse) but when you talk about 20,000, then it's real, even if it's just really massive. This kind of stuff is really mind blowing I've gotta admit.
No, you're putting a hundred infinity signs behind a 1. This is a massive super-real number, that I doubt any of us here could even ever really grasp because we just lack the mathematical facilities to understand that kind of stuff.
Yeah, that's only one followed by a hundred zeroes. How many zeroes? 100. 100 is a three-digit number. So if you can count to 3, you can count to a googol. Therefore you can learn a googol words easily if you can learn three words. You can learn three words in about 5 minutes. And 20,000 is a hell of a lot less than a googol therefore you can learn 20,000 words in less than 5 minutes. Anyone can learn Japanese in less than 5 minutes if they really wanted to.
Well, I understand how quantum mechanics allows for stuff like that, but when simplify the world down to Newtonian mechanics, then atoms can't really exist in huge amounts like that, because the universe would collapse in on itself. Just thinnk about it. A googol is HUUUGE. We can't even grasp how to comprehend that number it's so huge, but when you talk about the world, that's when things would start to fall apart, because with that many atoms being held in your hand you would have to be like a god with infinite power, but we're not gods, not to mention, the baseball bat itself would spontaneously convulse into a black hole, because that many atoms would be stronger than light. So yeah, I understand how quantum mechanics can make super state atoms violate certain things, but when you really think about it anyways, those atoms can't be superstates since they can only be in one state, so quantum mechanics is just correcting for what we cannot measure, which why it seems like there can be a googol of atoms, but in reality there aren't that many
Anyways, we should stay on Japanese.
Obviously the universe would still exist, but all of matter would collapse into a black hole, unless of course antimatter would like cause an explosion pushing all of matter out, just for the process to repeat again, I guess that that could be feasible, but then we would have to operating at an incredibly fast rate where we interact with the word like sonic jet fires do, but faster, because the convolutions of matter into and out of the black hole form would be imperceptible to us, because obviously right now we don't know of such a thing and also cannot measure black holes since we cannot see them.
The japs would be able of writing almost anything in 1 to 5 strokes if they followed the white man's way.
Imagine how much time they'd save, it would be like having a new life to live.
>Would need to look up a few words.
That's why I switched it from pic related (after yes 9.2 months of progress). Instead of staring at LOGH with a vagulely blank stare and chipping at sentences, I read it fluidly while easily identifying and looking up unknown words. I still am not fluent, and still don't read it "like water", but it's now a challenge (try me) as opposed to simply a stare.
Once you have written like 20000 or so you get a hang of it and can write at the same speed as you would writing with roman characters
Where did you see it, afaik the correct term is 誇り
I wrote "kyoufuuchuuihou" this time, still 7 seconds. It's the same thing.
I could probably do it 1 or 2 seconds faster if it was a word I use often, while writing this I have to actually think about what comes next.
Does デブ here mean debut? Is he saying that shops like this have been popping up alot?
all i'm getting is "fat", which dosent make sense in this context.
rikaichan has failed me before (in definitions), but then again i've failed myself often too (in parsing the grammar).
Hence why I am consulting you guys.
What's a good way to punish oneself for not doing anki reps consistently?
Aside from the reps themselves, of course.I'm terrible in my willpower and probably can't learn Japanese, but I'll still try.
>Officially going to start tomorrow
What app do you use for reading LNs in android?
I'm using Moon+ Reader at the moment, but it doesn't seem capable of supporting dictionary lookups for languages that don't separate words by spaces like Japanese.
>tfw no bf to watch Japanese tv with and cuddle to learn Japanese
I mostly just watch WW2 documentaries for my compelling content.
Thankfully I'm no longer susceptible to desires of the flesh
>playing game for studying Japanese
Are you alright? It's like a Korean saying "I will play Starcraft(or Fallout, or whatever) for learning English!"
I don't know you guys are trolling or just being retarded.
Kirei like that one anon said?
But no im manly as fuck looking.
Heh heh 2d>3d right boys?
Im getting a maki tattoo at some point. She's tfe reason I study Japanese.
>not getting into onsen never ever
Study hard Japanese and talk with actual Japanese who is not Korean or Chinese pretend to be Japanese about tattoo, just do it and notice Japan is not the land for bakagaijin like you.
Suspended so hard my reporting hand (right, fyi) gained a life of its own, clicking my mouse rapidly for 3 hours straight with such a tenacity it became clear arthiritis was the least of my worries, so clear was it that I could lose MY ENTIRE HAND to this bizarre possession.
>implying you're a native Japanese girl
Yeah ok buddy. Everyone I know who has tattoos has never said its an issue. People love tattoos they just aren't cool on the internet.
JLPT virgin here.
The JLPT might be harder than I thought. A passing mark would be getting a little over 50% score but I realized the points are scaled for difficulty. About how many points are each question worth?
I'm thinking that if 1 point is the lowest a question can be scaled down to I would just need to answer at least 19 questions each section and I would have enough points to pass each section. How correct is my logic?
If you don't understand our culture, don't come to Japan. You can't get job if you have tattoo in Japan. I hope you guys visit here>>>/int/51300192
and listen to what actual Japanese think. We don't say actual opinion in front of people have not known so much. Learn 本音と建前 before language itself.
Im already in that thread lol.
Im not planning on living there ever just visiting to get some sweet vagina and boipussy. Maybe even find my future wife.
>さて、この前の手紙にあった質問に答えましょう。 もし結婚しないなら、それは良いことです。 2しかし、普通の場合、結婚するのが一番良いでしょう。
What the hell is this nonsense? It's supposed to be:
>Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
>If (you) don't marry, that is good. However, the normal case is that marrying is the most good.
How is that anywhere near the lesson of "If sex is your aim, you should be married."? How liberal are Japanese translations of the Bible?
I'm having a little trouble with 先. Jisho seems to give contradicting definitions
>previous; prior; former; some time ago; preceding
>the future; hereafter
So it's both the future and the past? Thanks, Japan.
>I realize now that the only way to learn japanese is to get the fuck out of here.
The only way to learn Japanese is to read and listen a lot. It doesn't matter if you read the posts here or not. You baby.
If you want to feel even better, when you accumulate a nice vocab of 6,000-8,000 and you're most running into synonyms of words you already know, go read a college level English book and count the number of poetic words you have to look up. It made me feel a lot better about poor vocab.
You're most clever person in this thread.
t: Japanese person from /int/
So I'm going through google translate for the Japanese word for "heroine" and I get hiroin. I was wondering which word you think I should use for a very brave but possibly villainous hero who is blind to see they're fight is possibly misguided.
ヒロイン heroine or 主人公 hero, main character, protagonist, heroine, head of household or 烈女 heroine and 勇婦 heroine, brave woman Thanks in advance! :)
先輩 is generally written as せんぱい, right? Or is it not one of those words? Also, is there a list which I can reference to note which words are generally written in hiragana as opposed to kanji? I briefly searched for one but couldn't find anything.
/djt/ is pretty great most of the time.
You come in all like ただいま
and everyone's just like おかえり
and we all get along.
But sometimes it's not like that and you just have to wonder why they'd be so angry on the internet.
Anon if I email you some of my reps can you do them for me? :3
if you're not gonna try and learn japanese then fuck off, you're already a meme
Is anyone disputing this?
Don't tell us about it.
Same as 1.
Pretty much. Women ruin males spaces and the internet outside of normalfag social media corporate data collecting services are fundamentally male spaces.
The rest are pretty much either irrelevant or only relevant to Americlaps. Obviously it was written by some butthurt normalfag, though.
Not even a completely green hotpocketeer would ban someone for that.
Gaijin(foreigner)is so arrogant.
You foreigners can work at Japan, study and play．
but it's not your rights．
this is japan,our country.
you are not a member of our society.
It's special special favor from us.
Please dont misunderstand it.
All foreigners must think about the importance of showing respect & gratitude for japan．
Surprisingly many foreigners have a mistaken sense of superiority that can push japanese people．
because we Japanese spoilt the foreigner too much.
we'll be only scoffed at by them．
Now,we need to say clearly to silly foreigners．
Remember your place gaijin!
>implying Japanese are not Asian
>implying Japanese are not human
Are you fucking idiot or do you think it is funny?
I thought this guy (Sakurai Makoto, who is the leader of far-right wing organization) was wrong and I thought he was shame of Japan, but after I have read /a/ posts. I started to think he was right and I was just too much brainwashed by liberal media. Fuck gaijins, they all should be deported back soon.
>not getting the early classes out of the way at the cheaper college
>not practicing hygiene
>letting your body rot
Also, shitting on having a social life and sex life always struck me as particularly stupid. People who do this basically always place a large amount of emphasis on knowing your shit... until it comes to a topic where they're uncomfortable outside of their autistic hugbox of ignorance, then they actively hate people who haven't joined them in cowering in their little hole and have actually seen things with their own eyes, especially if said person's findings don't match the world view of the poorly adjusted autists. Bonus points when (not if; this is pretty much a free space) they treat all counter-data as either being revisionist or simply dismiss it without any sort of substantial argument. Another bonus when (this is another free space) they become angry specifically towards similar hugbox behavior from other people (feminists, for the most common example).
It's nothing short of full blown hypocrisy.
If the trends are pointing towards bending over and taking the third world in the ass then Japan would probably eventually start stepping in line and doing the same though, as much as I'd like to think they'd stand strong, it's hard to have your own way of doing shit in todays times
Even if it is starting, it will take more than 50 years to become same situation as Europe. One of the biggest reason Europe couldn't stop mass immigrants is they gave politics to females. We won't take this wrong choice in the first place.
We really need to band together, take to the streets, and blow the smoke away from the far left narrative before it spirals out of control even more. As people who live in the communities where said narrative springs from, only we have the power to stop it.
Much like the batshit right, this is more of a bipartisan issue than either side wants to realize. The bigotry and doublethink that lies at the core of it contradicts what the left claims to represent (and there are many left wingers who know it), and obviously the right tends to favor the interests of the people that bigotry is aimed at. The ad hominem, double standards, fallacious reasoning, and blatant disregard for the well being of anyone but themselves also doesn't change whether their opponent is a right winger or a left winger. The number of people against it actually isn't small (look at how gamergate exploded; also, at what percentage claimed to be socially liberal), but the problem is that people are scared to go out with their face uncovered and publicly declare that they, [real name, not some handle], are an enemy to an alliance of movements that has so many allies in the news media and among politicians, and that they aim to ruin them.

Why is Japan so retarded? At least deport the gaijins if you're gonna be that retarded to save the cost of housing and feeding them for all those years.
I don't want to be Japanese but I'd like to live there.
ESL in Japan is dead and finding a non-ESL job while living overseas is extremely difficult. On the other hand, finding a high-paying paying ESL job with benefits in South Korea is pretty easy. It's a 2-3 hour flight away and in the same time zone as well.
>Missing the joke
400 grams is a shitton, he deserves to rot, was just sad Japan has to waste cash on his ass. Sad they can just give him a bullet.
There are far better ways to bully imoutos you two, e.g. pic related.
No Japanese would take you serious if you're from Korea. Everyone will just smile you when they hear that you're from Korea, but they will think like "well, he doesn't know the difference between Japan and Korea... How stupid gaijin!" in their mind.
>you think this
>so surely you must think that completely unrelated thing, which also goes against the logic you previously used
Typical pothead, just kill yourself please.
>They won't take me seriously if I go in speaking fluent Japanese? ok
Finding Westerners who speak Japanese fluently is like finding Unicorn, so obviously they won't take you serious.
I've seen a few people say their japanese skill improved a lot after reading X amount of visual novels, in the form of "I didn't text hookers after my (x)th novel" or "I never needed to look up grammar after my (x)th novel". Those weren't the exact sentences that were said, but you get the point.
I've never seen someone say the same thing, but after reading manga or light novels though. Is there a reason for this? Will reading manga or light novels not increase my skill as well as if I read visual novels?
Alcohol is degenerate too. We hate them too.
Reading manga in Japanese will improve your skill of reading manga in Japanese, but not skill of discussion in Japanese or even reading books in Japanese.
This American guy knows a lot more kanjis than average Japanese, but he can't even speak in standard level Japanese.
It's the same for Japanese native speakers. Who have read a ton of manga in his younger age, he won't be good at reading books or talking in real life, they rather become socially retarded. Manga will help you understand the situation of story line, but it makes your basic learning skill lower.
Your little experience doesn't prove anything 2bh. Even in Japan. it's basically common knowledge that Japanese people are weaker in alcohol compared to mainland Asians. I guess your "Japanese friends" are not actually Japanese.
>Alcohol doesn't make people degenerate, degenerates just drink alcohol, same with all other drugs
Are you 李白？
Manga and LN are targeted towards a young audience. VNs mostly being 18+ are targeted towards intelligent adults capable of understanding more difficult, so to speak, literary writing. It's like comparing the Hunger Games to Faulkner, though the Hunger Games might still be a more challenging read than manga and LN of course.
>VNs mostly being 18+ are targeted towards intelligent adults capable of understanding more difficult, so to speak, literary writing.
>VNs mostly being 18+ are targeted towards intelligent adults capable of understanding more difficult, so to speak, literary writing.
おちんちん means dick
you can now understand at least a 1/3 of 90% of 18+ VNs you will ever play
Manga time needs to stop shilling ニューゲーム this hard.
>It's nothing short of full blown hypocrisy.
That's how humans function, but the difference is that we don't go into normalfag spaces and try to arrogantly and aggressively force them to change like they do to us. That is why they aren't welcome here.
It is about having a communal space for like minded individuals. That is essentially what 4chan was before it exploded into a multitude of normalfag boards, before m00ts retarded little still born side projects, before the media made exploding vans a meme. Accepting human behaviour and stop trying to force people to be open to everyone isn't pathetic, it's called surviving. If humanity took on the contemporary attitude of letting everyone come in and shit all over your unique spaces, we would have died out tens of thousands of years ago. We need competing forces to thrive.
I asked this a few threads ago but got no response, wikibooks claims the potential form can't be made into the て form, is this true? I swear I see stuff like 聞けて everywhere, or are they exceptions or what?
>There are a hell of a lot of fluent non-native Japanese speakers.
I think it was too much to say they are like unicorn, but there are "a lot"?
Never. If you're white or black and speak fluent Japanese, you will become celebrity on TV only for it. Of course there are a lot of Asians who speak Japanese (especially Koreans) but average whites never be fluent.
>LNs and VNs have narration, which tends to use much more complex language and vocabulary.
And it only makes you autistic like this poor American guy.
Wow, he's really impressive Japanese skill. I wonder he is actually American (he clearly looks half Asian) though.
But as I said, he can be celebrity just because he speak Japanese this fluent.
The pic is Jero, he is partly Japanese but he doesn't look Japanese so much and he sings Enka in Japanese. His singing skill is not very impressive, but he could become celebrity just because it is funny that black guy sing fluently Japanese song.
>a communal space for like minded individuals
That's a nice way to say "circlejerk"
You don't have to be open to everyone and everything anon, but an idea isn't going to hurt you, and dismissing the ideas of someone based on who they are or what they did in their life is absolutely pathetic. This is an anonymous imageboard. You won't know if the person behind the post you are reading is one of these "normalfags" or whatever you like to generalize people who differ from you to be, or if that person is "one of us".
This is a space in which it is irrelevant who you are. The only thing that matters is what you say. Dismissing the ideas and arguments which a person presents simply on the basis of who that person is, or preemptively shunning them from this space based on whatever characteristics apply to them but do not apply to you, is the weakest and most pathetic self-defense mechanism one could come up with while still not losing face before oneself.
If you act like this, then you are not arguing against the ideas or arguments which a person presents, you are dismissing these on the basis of who they are. Ironically so, you are doing this in a space in which it is supposed to be irrelevant who you are, and only what you say has value.
Eh, I don't know. That sentence sounds weird like that and I honestly don't remember ever seeing something like that being used. Even if it would make sense I don't think it's actually used by anybody.
4. embellishment Usually written using kana alone
>shutting out ideas that you don't want to hear so that you can continue living in your world of delusions is surviving
>shunning the seeking of truth is surviving
Be sure to keep that in mind the next time you see a HAES landwhale spouting her narrative, and angrily resorting to fallacies and ad hominem when anyone dares to present evidence and arguments that demonstrate how delusional she is. Sher's not weak, cowardly, and pathetic, nor is her behavior destructive towards both herself and others! She's just surviving!
Or you can realize where your own behavior reflects the same kind of shit that you rightfully hate so much and, armed with your new awareness, aim to avoid engaging in that behavior yourself.
>That's a nice way to say "circlejerk"
You missed the point, likely on purpose, given the rest of your post is nothing but a series of strawmen.
>The only thing that matters is what you say
Stop being native. What you are reflects what you say. Stop ignoring human behaviour.
>Ironically so, you are doing this in a space in which it is supposed to be irrelevant who you are
It is only irrelevant up to the point till others make their presence based on who they are. The normalfags, women, etc. who have come in here and tainted the space for years now, have made their real life presence a priority and it is clearly reflected in the posts.
Cry about it all you like but I've seen exactly how this takes place and it happens in the same manner every time, based on over two decades of intensive involvement in online communities. It is people like you who make it relevant to who people are. Prior to your ilk coming in and bringing the outside world with you, we didn't really care because it wasn't an issue. You have to understand the context: people are RESPONDING to the actions of unwelcome outsiders.
See above. Try to actually read the post instead of jumping to kneejerk offence. It has nothing to do with shutting out "the truth"; it's about having a space and maintaining its integrity. Those who don't give a shit about the integrity of a group tend to be the outsiders who don't belong in the group to begin with.
Stuff you put in soup, oden, nabe and shit like that is always ぐ. Also, I'm sorry to say this, but your Japanese production is not very good.
For honest Japanese learner like you, this imouto guy>>134036073
is not Japanese, so don't take him serious so much. I think your Japanese is ok but still need to improve. I was impressed you knew 「具（つま）」 though. Keep your great work!
Your whole argument is seriously >>>/tumblr/, even if you don't realize it.
The big problem with tumblr is that it's one of the best websites for creating an environment where the only people that you have to interact with are those who you choose to interact with. It's the ultimate echo chamber. Want to be told that it's perfectly healthy to believe that you're the reincarnation of Millhi from Dog Days, and that the writers got the story wrong? Tumblr is the place to go. Just search the animekin tag, and you have all of your friends lined up nice and neat, without any of that pesky "criticism" shit from non-anime kin.
Echo chambers in general are not good for fostering a healthy mind. They foster extremism, prevent open discussion, and encourage a lack of scrutiny towards ideas that are popular with the group. The fact that it inevitably happens to some degree doesn't make it healthy, and also doesn't mean that you, as someone who's aware of it, should make the problem worse by enforcing it.
Skim through RTK to see a demonstration of what radicals are and how they work. Don't actually do RTK though. Learn kanji through vocab and write out as many of them as you can stand to a few times each every day.
>I think your Japanese is ok but still need to improve.|
Before the huge influx of newfags we had a lot more general creativity and play, after the huge influx of newfags, the populous boards on 4chan rapidly changed into highly segmented boards with proto generals. Now each major board is mostly an assembly of detached generals. 4chan served well as an anti-echo chamber before it exploded into the mainstream in so that what actually happened and what you are describing seem at odds with each other.
matey I say do RTK properly or don't do it at all
I did the first 500 kanji or so and it has helped me a lot for them and the radicals they are made of, but after that I still often get very confused with other radicals and their variations.
>What you are reflects what you say
I don't think that I contended this.
What I am telling you is that the only thing which is of relevance to a discussion on an anonymous imageboard is what a person says, not who the person is. It is obvious that aspects of a person's character will shine through in their post, but this does not mean that you are to ignore their post and focus on their character instead. Which is exactly what you are doing.
>It is only irrelevant up to the point till others make their presence based on who they are
If you are talking about obnoxious blogging, then I agree with you that this has no place here. Other than that I cannot imagine what you are talking about when you say
>have made their real life presence a priority and it is clearly reflected in the posts
I would be curious to know how you know what kind of person I am, or whether I fit the criteria of whoever "they" are.
If it is simply disagreeing with you makes me one of "them", then you have already proven my point. If not, then I'd be pleased to hear about your psychic abilities to read my mind.
>coming in and bringing the outside world with you
Specify what kind of behavior you are referring to here, this is far too unspecific to serve as an argument.
>it's about having a space and maintaining its integrity
And you seem to be trying to maintain this integrity by shutting out people who disagree with you. This is exactly how an echo chamber works.
Hey anons, how would you translate this?
It's a title so there's no other context.
>Why are there so many fucking writings for あう/meet?
For the same reason there is more than one writing for かたい/hard and あつい/hot. Chinese had more specific words than the Japanese for the different nuances of the concept so they use the appropriate kanji accordingly.
延々 and 永遠 are different words, silly.
Right, 永遠 and 延々 are kinda similar so I thought they were the same last time I checked, my bad. There's a bunch of 延々 variations though if I recall.
I'm still not good anyway so just whining, but it's pretty annoying reading something, not knowing a character and it turns out to be an alternate writing of a word I already know.
Alternate writings tend to carry different nuances. Sometimes it's pretty arbitrary on the part of the writer (分かる and 解る), in which case you just have to remember the alternative ways to write that word, but sometimes the difference is very clear cut (熱い and 暑い), in which case you also have to know what each kanji usage implies. The IME usually has a brief description of each kanji usage when there's some significant difference in nuance (and for some words which are simply homophones too). Try typing あつい and scrolling down over the options and you'll see.
My Japanese reading is too slow to read definitions as I scroll through an IME. I figure out nuances through reading or looking them up and it works fine, I know some of the あう writings are used in different contexts, but as they all have similar readings it is still annoying to remember and differentiate between each one. The 解る case is pretty annoying too.
>My Japanese reading is too slow to read definitions as I scroll through an IME
You don't have to read fast, the text will stay there until you move down to the next option. Nothing wrong with picking their nuances from context, but sometimes it's good to just read the definitions when they're very clear cut. Sometimes you also want to know them right know and can't be bothered to wait until you see them used a bunch of times to understand where you should draw the line between one and the other.

It might be a bit off-putting at first, but it's not that troublesome in practice really, just another word to remember among thousands of others.
I'm not even doing new cards for this deck anymore, but every day I get another bunch of leeched cards.
Depressing as fuck. I'm starting to feel like I'm just wasting my time even trying to learn this shit.
I am not learning japanese, but I want to know, what do they say in japanese that the translators usually translate as "I refuse"?
Sounds something like "kotowaru" to me. I probably wrote that completely wrong though.
Soon I'll be done with this shit. All you fuckers saying 15 cards a day is not enough are fucking lying.
I finished Tae Kim a while ago. I'm about 2000 words into that deck, but I just keep getting shit wrong. I've had new cards turned off for almost 2 weeks now but my daily review load has yet to fall below 260. Some days it goes up to almost 300. It's so fucking frustrating.
The problem for a lot of them is that there are other cards in the deck with very similar pronunciations and meanings, which makes it so that I keep mixing them up.
As for reading, I'm having a lot of trouble motivating myself to do it simply because of how hard I find it. I can't even make sense of simple sentences most of the time.
The audience of Otome games and BL games is pretty different.
One is into pure love, no lewds, the other one is into guys fucking other guys.
Of course, they overlap sometimes, but most prefer one of those.
I don't think 49% of males are chads.
>Sometime you guys seem to forget that ~50% of people are female.
In Japan, VN game industry is for girls and anonymous boards (= 2ch) is 50% used by females.
But it sounds like VN here means eroge for males and females in anonymous boards are not allowed. This kind of western gender role culture on the internet was one of the biggest surprise for me.
Sorry anon, but I don't think my English skills are up to you. I guess you mean how much I can read? LNs with difficulty, easy VNs and manga without big problems.
It's only ~15min before going to bed, not that hard. The fear of having to do more the next day keeps me going. And I already failed a few times with different decks.
I'm a little girl, but I prefer to be called a 'loli'.
