RP is still markedly different because when you RP you're trying to maintain character.

It may not be better but it's still different from avatarfagging, and I don't find that this person is RPing anyway.

I'm having trouble memorising the Core2k/6k in Anki

I always have to have 5+ attempts at a new card before I get it, is that normal?

I also have trouble with things that are very similar like 持つ and 待つ. How do you guys remember stuff like this?

I had the idea of doing my Anki reps and then going through and grabbing all of the Kanji I had just gone through and adding them to a seperate deck that contains the Kanji then on the flip side the pronunciations and example words it's used in. Do you think that would help?

scrub question here

is the kanji and pronunciation for circle and yen exactly the same or am i missing something
>>
>>138986613
待つ has the same symbol as 行く, which was like the first real kanji I learned. And I learned 待つ before 持つ so since it was the first of the two I draw a parallel to 行く.
Just find arbitrary patterns to help you with that stuff. If you're too dumb to come up with one feel free to remember that there's someone out there that learned 行く and 待つ before 持つ.

Why though? There's nothing inherently wrong with using Rikai while reading as long as you're not over-relying on it. It's a convenient tool to make lookups faster and make the creation of new cards significantly faster. That's like saying anki is stupid when you can just do it the hard way and make physical flashcards.

Wait till 700 words minimum for minimum pain.

I'm about the same as you (though at 800 words) and I tried Yotsuba the other day.
I feel like it's a bit misleading to tell people to try for a first translation. First of all, Yotsuba is a retard, so half her sentences are grammatically incorrect. As someone new to Japanese, you're bound to get confused as fuck when she changes a pronunciation or misuses a word.

Better to start with something that's adult or teen focused imo.

The filename. It makes no sense to use hiragana for a single 字.
>>
>>138988867
Uhhh... I guess I see why you'd want to do that. But I don't think it's really necessary for Tae Kim.
The idea is to go through it relatively quickly so you can start reading as soon as possible.
It's okay to not fully understand everything because you usually won't fully grasp it until you start actually reading.
You can always come back to it afterwards.

But I guess if taking it slow and writing helps you learn better then feel free to do so.
I personally took it pretty slow when going through Tae Kim but I wish I'd have spent less time going through it because my understanding of grammar didn't really start to take shape until I actually started reading.

>How do I translate my name into Kanji? Is it even possible for a gaijin? Do I choose them based on meaning and attach furigana?
>I just don't want to have a silly katakana name.

Foreigners don't write their names in Kanji. It's just weird.

Japanese people won't even realize the Kanji they're looking it is supposed to BE a name if it's not a common Jap name and there's a gaijin face attached to it.
>>
>>138989467
Just settle for katakana like a normal person, making up a kanji name for yourself makes you look like the ultimate autist.
>>
>>138989380
I'm torn between doing more vocab a day (50 new + reps in the morning and then 50 more latter if I feel like it) so I can get to reading actual Japanese faster, or doing a Kanji deck along side the Core2k/6k.

If I was to do a Kanji deck I'd probably make my own based on the Kanji I meet in the Core2k/6k, since that would surely help me remember it.

Which do you think would be more benefitial?

Gaijins don't get kanji names.
Katakana are the Mark of the Gaijin and you must wear them proud as you stride into glorious Nippon.
A Gaijin attempting to adopt kanji into their name is disrespectful to our Nihonjin superiors.
Besides, I think katakana looks really cool.

なりそこない means a thing which failed to become something or a thing which looks like something but not totally. So unless you specify that "something" it doesn't make sense.

1. Find a kana table, just google it there will be hundreds
2. Write down each kana and their corresponding "sound" fiddy times
3. Jump on this and grind: http://realkana.com/practice/

I got them memorised in a weekend. With hiragana especially you see them constantly anyway so you won't forget them. I quit for over a year and when I came back I still remembered all the kana, it's almost impossible to forget.
>>
>>138995918
Nah, we all start somewhere anon. Though it is something that could've been solved by checking Anki's manual. That deck has a lot more cards than it needs, so feel free to delete cards when you feel they aren't necessary or you don't need them anymore. You want to get through Tae Kim relatively quickly, so don't let the deck pace you and hold you back.

Sure.
Save them as tabbed spaced csv files and make sure the encoding is set to UTF-8. Alternatively you can copy and paste the contents of the spreadsheet directly into something as simple as notepad or a text editing program and save that as a txt file, making sure to save the encoding as UTF-8.

Anki will parse the tabbed spaces/columns as fields and each new row is contained to a single card. Using spreadsheets/text files is how all of the large/popular Anki decks came to be.

Since the iknow core 6k content was released under creative commons, if you live in an area within reach of a native tutor or something, they'd probably be willing to be recorded if it equated to money. They usually charge a set amount per hour and tend to be willing to take on anyone for even the stupidest language related stuff. Might even be able to find a Japanese girl to record.
It is a better way of ensuring correct pronunciation from actual natives.

You are responding to one of those anons who doesn't want that avatarfag attention whore here. This petulant boogeyman attitude is just pathetic: there are many anons who want the shit removed from this thread.
Half the time the anons people like you start freaking out about have spent every other post in the thread being helpful but you just happen to be triggered by a phrase of an idea you don't like then your brain goes out the window and the religious fever takes over.
The amount of times I've been part of a constructive conversation with other anons for dozens of posts only to have a comment singled out and made into some /pol/esque monster that represents everything wrong the with world is obscene. If the memespewers, attention whores and paranoid nutcases were to leave this thread it would increase ten fold.

You're freaking out and trying to stab your own shadow, anon. Get a fucking grip and maybe ease up on the amphetamines or something.

>>138999833

>>138999833
No, and they won't know until I'm actually able to speak it.

Back when I was in uni I made the mistake of telling a classmate I was learning Japanese (after he was talking about going to jap classes himself). The weeb fuck constantly tried to speak to me in Japanese from that day forward and since he was learning through school lessons he was able to speak, and I wasn't in the slightest since I'd only just past 1k words in my vocab deck and couldn't actually form sentances at that point.

To make it worse he was always talking about jap porn, especially train rape ones because those were his favourite. I remember him telling me how in his japanese class he had to do a presentation and speak in japanese. In the presentation he had one of those cringey photoshopped images where he was with Miku and he actually said "Miku is my girlfriend" to a class full of human beings.

Other than that he was ok I guess, but he was so awkward it hurt. If you're reading this, fuck you James

Also I'm learning it almost entirely to read VNs so my family would never understand.

Yeah. My step-grandmother is the only one who doesn't really get it, but she's the sort of person who hates fun and doesn't understand why people have interests that she doesn't have.

My dad thinks it's pretty cool and wants to travel around Japan in a couple years with me. I think I can get to the point where I can understand almost everything we'd run into by then, but interpreting for him and speaking are probably a different issue.

The problem isn't "english is simple", the problem is "these terms that describe most european languages are poor at articulating on the complicated parts of english", so they're mildly hard to explain in the context of english, at least hard enough that teaching them in elementary and middleschool doesn't work. Yes, they do teach them. Nobody remembers them, because they don't align with the subconscious grammar of english. As someone who literally speaks slang IRL, it's basically impossible for me to describe "genitive" without giving a list of examples, all of which use completely different english grammatical systems.

Feels good to freely use Japanese for recreation. JRPGs seem to be a lot easier than "normal" Japanese though, well Demon's had some pretty hard words but SaGa could almost be written for kids, and maybe it is. The heavy use of Katakana is relieving, so need to learn words like "Flamberge" or "shotel"

When using the Tae Kim Grammar deck with a low knowledge of vocab, how do you grade yourself?

For example if you got to 学生じゃない and knew that じゃない meant "is not" but forgot what 学生 was, do you say you passed and continue in the deck or do you mark that as a failure?
>>
>>139001987
i mean the grammar is the important thing. its not a big deal if you dont know a vocab word in that context
>>
>>139001987
I'd probably tick that as hard. Then again, I always learn the vocab before getting into the grammar, so that hasn't happened so far.

When it comes to VNs, it tends to be that the only games with unique stories/premises are chuuni, and chuuni games of course have more difficult language than other things. However you can find plenty of interesting VNs that aren't chuuni (And thus have easier language), its just they arent as IN YOUR FACE cool like Muramasa or Silverio Vendetta or whatever. Well, thats for the modern industry anyway.

The problem is just that genuinely talented authors tend towards written media as opposed to VNs, or at least thats what I conclude looking at VNs. Opening a book and finding it to be well written is no surprise given the sheer quantity of talent but for VNs, finding quality writing is like finding pearls among swine. Not saying it doesn't exist, just that its by nature of reality harder to find. In my eyes, good writing tends to equate to interesting writing by the way. The quintessential example of this being Brothers Karamazov, an endlessly fascinating, interesting book that has practically 0 action, its carried by the quality of the author. Likewise a VN with good writing will be interesting by nature of the writing, most of the time.

Anyway, due to mixture of lack of talent, and trends set by forefathers, talented authors get spread between making Chuunige like Muramasa, or making obscure games no one plays. It's a shame. Well, perhaps the real shame is that Japanese fans endlessly drool over moege and thus THATS where the money is. Ridiculous. If moege productions ceased today the existing games would carry humanity for the rest of its life, for whoever cares about them.

Read as much as you can until you can read 3/5 as quickly as you can read English. N1 is not only about how much kanji and vocab you know, that's N2. Everybody here that have studied for a while can pass N2.

None of the others have really evoked the same feeling yet. Maybe I'll eventually find another one though.

In cases where it's words that actually have different spelling in Rikai, just activate sticky mode and import the entry you want (you'll have to fix the sentence if you add those, though).

In cases like that what you have there you're kind of just screwed and have to more or less make it manually. Import the wrong one, edit the note, copy the correct definition and reading from Rikai (sticky mode lets you select text from the popup) then get the correct audio by typing in the reading and kanji to the place Rikai pulls its audio from or checking Forvo.

Example url of that word audio

They aren't related at all. I haven't read either one yet so I can't tell you anything about the difficulty.
>>
>>139009600
theyre both written in japanese and so if you dont know japanese there will be difficulty

ムッチリ / むっちり : plump; chubby; voluptuous

sometimes the japs use katakana not because it's a loan-word, but because they want to sound cool or place emphasis on the word

Could anyone help me identify the manga used as examples in Japanese The Manga Way

I haven't learned a damn thing except those little shorts are made interesting as fuck.

I know one of them is "What's Michael?" but I really want to know the title of the one with the rice crop girl and the office guys/ladies.

>>139007771
You mean the fact that not everything is light blue because occasionally i get cards wrong?

Alright.

Thanks Jamal, but I was wondering if there's anything in White Album 2 that would set it apart from a typical moege or charage in terms of difficulty that I wouldn't know about just from watching the anime and reading the description.

>sometimes the japs use katakana not because it's a loan-word, but because they want to sound cool or place emphasis on the word

Or just because it's a common things to do with mimetic words, like the one we are talking about?
>>
>>139009600
White album 2 was somewhat difficult in a way that wasn't really related to the difficulty of the Japanese, but would be much more confusing if you aren't good at Japanese. Basically there will be 3-4 lines of narration in the middle of one continuous thought, so when the thought gets continued you have to look at the backlog do see what it is continuing from.

its got more big boy words and literary depth than はなひら but less than きっと澄みわたる朝色よりも
>>
>>139009847
So what, you got about a 40%

Waste of your time retard

Can someone help me make sense of this?
日本と帝国が開戦して 五ヶ月は経とうとしていた

What I don't understand is the volitional + to suru grammar that's being used here. It's really weird for this kind of grammar point to be used in this context.

It is approaching 5 months since ore wa started becoming nihon

Nuh uh

Alright, I guess I'll give it a couple more VNs before giving it a try. Thanks.

It's just one of those things.

i mean if you want just some boring baseline stats that dont tell you much other than white album 2 is fucking long, it has about 100 more unique kanji than きっと澄みわたる朝色よりも and twice as many lines of text

きっと澄みわたる朝色よりも is definitely not something as easy to digest as the likes of white album though

study up on 未然形 because a lot of verbs can work like this

>>139011937
お友達になろうよ

ああ ありがとう!

>study up on 未然形
What does that have to do with anything

Is the anon that changed the background to black and the text to white on the auto-scrolling html here?
How did you do it again?
>>
>>139012152
I looked up the definition for that
>未然とは「まだそうではない」という意味であり、否定の「ず」や意志・推量を表す「む」によって作られる語形を意識した名称である
Since the answer to his question was that the "とうとしていた" meant "about to happen" perhaps he is claiming it falls under the 「まだそうではない」という意味

Check the setup pastebin again. It was added there.

Not sure how to feel. Currently feeling "despair" because at that point I feel one becomes more accountable for inadequacy.
