Half true.

There can definitely be a warm up period where you have to get into the swing of things, and the period after your warm up sees you get better.

However, after a few hours, you kinda start to lose focus. I've found a few times that towards the end of my reading, I started running into more and more things that I couldn't understand. So, rather than lose parts of the story, I stop playing. Then I come back the next day, and those parts are easy.

The reviews are when the words actually nail themselves into your long term memory, and the longer you wait, the longer you have to forget, and the less chances you have to review the word. So yes, you absolutely need to get your reviews down to zero every single day. You're actually making life harder on yourself by setting a review limit for purposes other than splitting your reviews up throughout the day.

If you have too many reviews for your schedule/capacity to focus, tough it out and lower the amount of new cards that you're doing every day by five.

>>134118434
If you want to keep reviews low then
1. keep your new cards low
2. hit easy more often
3. adjust starting ease, easy bonus, and/or interval modifier (If you know what you're doing)

The only time limiting reviews regularly won't result in a pileup of reviews is when you could have gone through it normally like a good ankek

The only circumstance where it's acceptable to hit easy is when you know the word so well that you can recognize it without even thinking about it, as if it were a word in your native tongue, and you're sure that you'll never forget it. If you can hit easy, you can basically delete the card from your deck with no consequences.

Otherwise, hit good if you get it right relatively easily, and hard if you struggle or possibly when you get it "close enough" (for example, you say きゅう when it's きょう) and when it'll just push it back less than a month.

To people worried about thinking in English instead of Japanese: Get your reading skills up a bit, and then put a concentrated effort into your listening skills. If you're reading VNs, you can work on both at once, using the VN text as a transcript (a text parser can come in handy here).

You can't think in English while listening. You don't have time. You understand it either as Japanese or as a jumbled mess.

>You can't think in English while listening. You don't have time. You understand it either as Japanese or as a jumbled mess.

This is why you should start watching anime without subtitles (sol-shit and the like, that is) as soon as you learn some grammar and vocabulary. (in my case I started watching sol-shit without subs when I was half-way through Tae-Kim and knew about 1500-2000 words)

Instead, most faggots think that waiting until they are masters of grammar and know +25000 words before watching anything without subs is the best course of action.

If you can't understand it you can't understand it. Watching without subs isn't going to magically increase your comprehension yet sometimes subs can be useful for quick reference to check your comprehension on the fly which in turn can make it easier to deduce further surrounding things from context that you can take away and learn from.

There is no shortcut to "thinking in a language" as it ultimately boils down to dominance of comprehension in the given context. The adult brain can't simply shut down and start thinking like a child if it has already build up an extensive and complex knowledge network of concepts and meaning attributed to language. After enough continual comprehensive input you'll naturally start to focus less on things like subtitles as it is actually easier to let yourself focus on the spoken language because 1. the comprehension is there and 2. the context is easier to follow overall from the visual queues in association with what is being said.

>Instead, most faggots think that waiting until they are masters of grammar and know +25000 words before watching anything without subs is the best course of action.
These straw people would get a hell of a lot more out of unsubbed anime than those with fuck all vocabulary and structural comprehension. I'm surprised people to this day still spew out repackaged versions of AJATT blog posts. The science doesn't support your rhetoric. Your ego is the only basis here.

>How did 面白 end up meaning “Interesting”?
>According to 語源由来辞典 ( http://gogen-allguide.com/o/omoshiroi.html ), 「面白い」 is originated from 「面白し」. 「面」 used to mean "a sight/view" (the source says the front of eyes) and 「白い」 used to mean "bright and clear." Then 「面白し」 later came to mean "a light/bright sight/view" and then later "a beautiful sight/view". It further came to mean "fun" or "comfortable", which represents a pleasant feeling.

ARE YOU A BAD ENOUGH DUDE TO READ THIS?
>>
>>134124923
Not too bad but it got a bunch of technical terms in some parts, like related to philosophy and psychology.

Also there is a lot of references to other works. Alice in Wonderland, norse mythology, etc. I especially recommend reading the plot summary of Cyrano de Bergerac, it's referenced a lot and is quite important to the story so far, you'll be doing yourself a favour if you know the gist of it before you start reading.

Why did Japan think it was a good idea to have 4 vowels that only make 2 sounds?

Look at this shit.
>まえ
>まい
and
>もう
>もお

It's fucking impossible to tell the difference unless it's very carefully sounded out. Given Japanese operates at a pace almost twice as fast as English, it becomes indecipherable pretty quick.

Those aren't the same at all. You have hearing problems or just beginner's frustration syndrome.

>もう
>もお
These are actually pronounced the same, but that doesn't mean う and お are the same. う and お are completely different sounds but, for reasons, as a rule, when う comes after an お syllable you pronounce it as お.

So I need to start learning Kanji/Vocab while practicing Grammar today (transitioning from Kana).

I grabbed Anki and the Core2K/6K deck last night and tabbed up the Tae Kim guide for grammar. Is doing these two in parallel good enough for beginner material vocab/grammar or should I add a Japanese Grammar deck to Anki to supplement?

I also need to ask if the default settings for Anki are ideal as far as reviews/new cards/intervals go. Haven't payed attention when lurking the threads earlier since I was still on Kana.

I've read Tae Kim really only covers up to beginner level grammar so I feel I should have a contingency plan once that well runs dry.

Any advice, /djt/? My compelling content awaits.

Since I started reading physical media I've learned one thing for certain... rikai, glossator, google search, etc. are godsends. I own casio ex-word, so physical media word lookup is as fast and easy as it can possibly be , and it still isn't even close

>>134127486

Oh man I fucking remember that game and being slightly annoyed the third one wasn't released in English. Finishing it completely tanked my mood because I realized there was no more. I guess I have some compelling content of my own to go get now I can actually read it.

As for your actual post, fuck, I took a really unorthodox path I can't advise at all since it was slow as shit. Sorry.
>>
>>134127486
Set max reviews to 9999 and new cards to whatever you can handle doing daily. 20 new per day means 200-300 reps per day after a few days
>>
>>134127486
Tae Kim covers enough to start reading. You'll still encounter stuff you don't know but as long as you aren't too stupid to google or look things up there's no problem.

DOBJG deck is probably a good idea too just because people here go through tae kim fast so you need to try to actually retain a decent amount of basic grammar somehow

Let's not get into this here further since it's nether /pol/ nor /r9k/ but /a/, but suffice it to say that: yes, there are some women who are attracted to crazy murderers. However, there is a contingent of men who feel the same way, for example all of the guys saying "I want to fuck Casey Anthony" back when that case was going on. Most online posts claiming things like these are joking, and the ones that aren't jokes should just be ignored. Anyone who actually would want to be in a relationship with a murderer, regardless of gender, is crazy and should be avoided.

What I'm saying is no one with a handsome face will have any problem finding a girlfriend as long as he has the social skills. If dealing with a younger counterpart having no social skills would be okay as well. The game of 'love' always comes down to looks and money.

Regardless of whether he is a murderer, or insane, this kid will have no problem getting a girlfriend thanks to his face. 10 years down the road if he doesn't become a neckbeard he'll be fucking girls left and right.

>人並みの知性を朱った少女
I' having a tough time wrapping my head around this bit. Particularly the purpose を serves here in making "bloodied girl" the direct object of average intelligence. Does it just mean that she's of average intelligence? Here's the whole sentence I'm looking at:

人並みの知性を朱った少女は、自らの首に巻かれたピアノ線を気に留めることもなく立ち上がろうとし、もがき、それは徐徐に少女の菜肌に食い込み、首の肉を裂いていく。

And my take on it so far:
The bloodied girl of average intelligence keeps trying to stand up, struggling, without considering the piano wire around her throat, so it gradually bites into her green tinted skin splitting open the flesh of her neck.

Here is a reading example from the JLPT N1 test:

アジアでであれユーロッパであれ、あるいは、三日であれ一ヶ月であれ、旅から帰って成田空港(注1)に着く。(中略)私はいつもバスではなく列車で家まで帰る。都心に向かう列車には、旅から帰ってきた人と、これから旅する人たちが乗っている。話している人たちがいても、不思議静かだ。帰る人の疲れと、旅する人の緊張が混んざり合ったような、ほかの路線ではなかなか味わえない静けさである。列車がトンネルを出ると、私は窓の外の景色を見る。空港からしばらくは、田園風景が続く。彼方(かなた)まで続く田んぼは、季節によって一面の緑だったり、はられた水が空を映して青かったりする。山々が、遠く見えたり近くに迫ってきたりする。冬枯れの景色でも、緑濃い初夏でも、自然の色彩が非常にやわらかいことに毎回あらためて気づかされて、そうして、帰ってきたなあと実感する。アジアにもユーロッパにもそれ以外のどこにでも、ゆたかだったそうではなかったりする自然がある。田舎を旅すればむせかえるような(注2)緑の中を歩くことになる。見慣れた田んぼとそっくりな光景を見ることもある。葉の落ちた木々が針のような枝を空に突き刺す景色に見とれることもある。緑の多い町だ、とか、水墨画(注3)みたいだ、とか、その程度の感想は抱くが、その色彩についてとくべつ何も思わない。帰ってきて、車窓から景色をみて思うのだ。この国の色彩は本当にやわらかい、と。木々の緑も、四季(注4)に即した山の色も、川も空も。旅先で見てきた木々や空や海といったものが、なんと強烈な色を放っていたのかとこのときになって気づく。窓の外に緑が尐なくなって、次第に家やビルが増えてくる。都心に近づくにつれ、どんどん建物や看板が増えてくる。さっきより「ああ、帰ってきた」がもう尐しふくらむ。都心の、そらの狭い、ごたついた(注5)風景をきれいだと思ったことは一度もないけれど、でも、帰ってくると毎回近しく(注6)思う。好きとか嫌いではなくて、私に含まれているかのような近しさを覚えるのだ。先だって、成田空港まで人を迎えにいった。旅のにおいをまだ濃厚に漂わせている人を到着口で迎え、いっしょに列車に乗り込んだ。旅の話を聞きながら、窓の外を眺めていて、ちょっとびっくりした。旅から帰って見る景色とぜんぜん違う。退屈な、見るべきところもない田園風景が広かっているのである。そうか、旅のあとじゃないと、ただの日常の光景なのか。都心が近づいてくる。窓の外に私が見ている光景と、旅から帰ったひとから見ている景色は、まったく違うんだろうなあと思った。旅というのは、空港に着いたときに終わるのではなくて、周囲の景色は、わざわざ目を凝らすこともない日常に戻ったときも終わるのだと知った。

Don't think you should need a deck for this. You would remember the words the first time you see them.

Just look at a website with connoisseur words.

This isn't true, you actually have to come across the word more than once in order for your brain to remember it.

After realizing how hard the JLPT N1 is, especially compared to the N2, I've gotta say, I really don't see the point in doing any easier one... doing N5-N2 is basically just saying you've got the Japanese skill of a three year old. I don't even think they're good as a way to measure one's progress, because it's so unbalanced: N5-N2 are just saying "you're still far too bad for N1". I dunno, I just don't get it. I feel like people are getting suckered into doing them. In a just world, JLPTN5-2 would be removed and there'd be just one JLPT test on the same level as the current N1.

It's just that Japanese has more words in use than English. English uses multiple words a lot when Japanese just has a single word for it. For example a common word 木漏れ日 might seem very specific from an English perspective even though it's actually quite a common sight.
>>
>>134136927

Honestly, yeah, you've cracked it.
>>
>>134136927
well "three year old" is a little extreme, but yeah, anything under n2 is fairly useless, and if you're good enough for n2 you should probably just study and go for n1 instead.
>>
>>134136978
I get that you can look at kanji and figure out its stroke order from that alone. But I found that even though I knew the words for some vocab, if I was asked to write it out on a piece of paper I would be completely lost. I'm not sure if other people have this same problem.

I did that for awhile but eventually had enough and re-enabled suspending leeches. Know what happened? I started getting way less reviews, my retention rate went way up, and I started finishing way faster. If you fuck up a word in anki then anki is not the best way to learn the word. There's a saying - if all you have is a hammer, you'll treat everything like a nail. Well anon, leeches aren't always nails to hit, some require special attention. Suspending leeches was a huge load off my back and I'm glad I did it. Good riddance.

If you fail a card enough times (not in a row, but on separate days) it is called a leech. Default is 12 times, I moved it to 20 for myself. If you actually learn a word it is very unlikely you'll fail in 12 times, so leeches tend to be uncommon and especially hard words. That anon was suggesting you keep those in your deck and just keep trying to memorize them in anki, other anon suggests removing (suspending) leeches and memorizing them outside of anki.
>>
>>134137711
If you're interested in maximizing the rate which you're learning new words at, then you should lower the leech threshold, since those are the words that take up alot of your time and effort all for little return.
>>
>>134137825
My deck is centered around new/difficult kanji so I went in anticipating to fail a lot for each one (indeed, my retention was god awful in the beginning). So the 20 actually helped me, I think. I also changed my interval modifier to 80% or so, making every interval 20% shorter (10 days -> 8 days) for boosted exposure.
>>
>>134136927
N5-4 are literally useless.

N3 is only useful if you want to be like a chef at a place that serves japanese customers regularly or something.
>>
>>134137487
Remember that you are going to have learn these words eventually, and suspending leeches and never learning them is definitely not the way to go. I think the optimal strategy is to go over them separately if necessary, but keep them in anki so you do end up learning them.
>>
>>134137943
>N3 is only useful if you want to be like a chef at a place that serves japanese customers regularly or something

Not that anon, but I'll have to remember that. Still just trying to get down Hirigana, but I'm assuming what you're talking about are the characters for food and drink.

You should take it even further and only review things you already know, then you would have 100% retention and it wouldn't take much time at all. :^)
>>
>>134138241
I would say suspending leeches and ignoring them is superior to NOT suspending leeches and just letting them flow through anki as per normal, in my personal experience that didn't help at all, I mean they're leeches for a reason. I think there are two optimal courses of action -
1) Special study every leech every day and be very very attentive
2) Suspend them, and do alternative memorization strategies such as writing.
>>134138301
The chef wouldn't interact with the customers, he probably was just referring to be able to say "ありがとう", "さようなら", "私のホバークラフトは鰻でいっぱいです", etc

But you can do alternative memorization strategies without suspending them. If you suspend them from Anki, it basically guarantees you'll never learn them.

Unless you, gee, I dunno, unsuspend them
>>
>>134138727
The thing about leeches is that they only appear when you've failed to learn them through anki. Therefore, suspending them doesn't really mean a whole lot except saved time. You can unsuspend them whenever you like, too. It's important to remember that we're not talking about 1 or 2 leeches, but potentially hundreds, as they build up over time, and in groups like that simply leaving them all unsuspended is aa huge time sink.

I don't know what else they do, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have to jump through multiple hoops of regulations just when a candidate registers to make sure that they didn't take the test somewhere else already, or that if they did, they know about that. There is a shitton of bureaucracy and regulations involved behind these language tests which are required to ensure their quality.

The problem with plotge, for me, is that often the difficult makes them just boring. The slow pace, misunderstanding the lines due to (ultimate) inexperience... Its hard to maintain interest.

Meanwhile nukige offers constant sex and moege offer constant, easy, good times. It's hard to go in deep

It's mainly the sword catching my eye. The resolution is too low to see any cheapness in the fedora, and the trenchcoat, I mean, it fits as well as you'd expect.

中途半端

I learned this phrase a couple weeks ago and I've already heard it dozens of times. I love when that happens.

Before anyone says "Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon", it's just that 中途半端 is really common in the first place

Can someone help me out? I'm trying to interpret 
わたしの血が。。。あなたの血となり骨となる

(the two are brother and sister, basically vampires)

Literally I think it's "my blood will become your blood and your bones," where bone is possibly being used more figuratively to mean support or help.

大雨が降るとすぐに橋が流されてしまう川があった。

困った村人たちは相談して橋造りの名人の大工に頼むことにした。大工が流れの速い川を眺めていると、川から鬼が現れて、目ん玉をよこせば立派な橋を架けてやるという。翌日大工が川にいくと、既に橋は半分できあがっていた。鬼は目ん玉をよこせば残り半分をつくってやると言うが、さすがに大工はうんと言えなかった。

また翌日川に行くと橋は完成しており、鬼が現れて、わしの名前をあてることができれば、目ん玉を諦めてやると言った。大工は家に帰ってからずっと考えていたが、どうしても名前がわからない。その時、隣の部屋でおかみさんが子どもに子守歌を歌っているのが聞こえた。「ねんねこ、ねろってばや。鬼にも名前はある。ねろってばや。はよねた子には、鬼六が目ん玉持ってやってくる。」

鬼の名前がわかった大工は翌日鬼にお前の名前は鬼六だ!と言うと鬼は姿を消してしまった。鬼六の架けた橋はどんな大雨でも流されることはなかった。

>>134146622
Even then the "pun" or what have you was clearly playing of 百合・か so it's obvious why ユーリカ wasn't used.
