Hi. Little bit confused about the highlighted part. Context is the protagonist's gay friend is sad that he's more interested in the girl that doesn't wear underwear to school than him. Is the protag going on to say that he could ruin her election chances and make her social life die because he could tell people she doesn't wear panties to school? Any help is appreciated, the following sentences are also bothering me a little cause I'm not sure if I read that right.

Oh that too, but that isn't used in a different meaning. I think anyone could read アレ as あれ and have no issue understanding what it is.

While for イク you'd read that and "huh? where is she going now? Isn't she in the middle of... oh."
Same for ノリ, and this one pushes it even deeper imo. Cause they're like... "riding the mood" or something like that.

More like Japanese people don't care about epub versions and are perfectly happy with scans.
>>
>>144459635
I doubt it, those don't display well on Kindles.
>>
>>144459503
Well putting it as a suffix is misleading if it is referring to a whole phrase like if you were to do
>kamino nagai onnaga suki
Romaji really only has two big purposes - to help very beginners read the language a bit and to help people who don't speak any japanese read japanese words approximately correctly. Putting particles as suffixes helps neither of those.

0. Nips like to brag and show off the things they buy even if they have to take screenshots of their e-libraries.
>>
How the hell do you even buy Kindle versions on amazon.co.jp anyways? It tries to do some weird digital transfer shit and tells me to buy it on my local amazon or something, even though it doesn't exist there
>>
>>144459746
>>144458560
If it helps make you feel better, unless you take 2 years before you attempt any native material your speed at the beginning is pretty irrelevant. All that matters is how much you read/listen once you can start and that you don't settle for being able to read/listen to easy material and stop challenging yourself.

Anywhere from 2 months to 10 years.

>>144460139
>>144460281
I don't think you need a VPN. I'm in Europe and I buy them from JP Amazon all the time without one. I know that you need a VPN to buy in the USA Kindle store though because it's region locked. Could it be that people in the US are locked out of other Amazon's services as well? Do you have a screenshot of the message the site shows you?
>>
>>144460475
Meant to ask "normal time frame". Basically what I was getting at was when it's expected to achieve such proficiency if you're at least semi-serious about learning Japanese, which friend seems to be
>>
>>144460627
I'm European as well. You did enter a Japanese address though, right? How do I get one that isn't obviously fake, or do they not care at all?

I've found for both reading and listening there's a nice medium in skill for super effective study. If you're too good you don't get much out of it, and if you're too shit then you need to look stuff up frequently which results in way too many breaks to surf the internet if your attention is shit like me.

I finally can watch anime well enough to actually watch it so my listening practice is way more effective now since fewer pauses = fewer distractions. Feels pretty good.

>>144460698
I honestly don't remember but I think I copy pasted the address of one of the packages I had around from another seller. It should be fine as long as you don't accidentally set it as a default address and ship your other Amazon JP purchases there. If you still can't do it even after entering an address, look for something that says Manage Content and Devices in your account options. See if Japan is listed as a country in the settings and if you have a device set.

Like the other anon said though, be careful when you're done setting everything up because they activate this thing where you automatically make a purchase if you click the button right next to the book. There's no confirmation page or anything.

How far in were you? I was like 1k cards into core and it became impossible for me to use a computer for 2.5 months. I did reviews for a couple weeks and recuperated pretty quickly and now I'm at 1.7k. Information you learned then forgot can be relearned pretty easily.

>>144467812
It was one of two decks that I use in Anki. The other was Core deck covering the 6k tier of vocab that was easy for me to catch up on while the one in question is a discovered vocab deck with about 1100~ terms. I think I'll try and catch up the normal way even though it'll take a while.

Greetings, Japanese-speaking fellows. Is there some Rikaisama fork that lets you export meanings other than the first? The sticky mode export trick doesn't always work, so sometimes I have to copy-paste the meaning using sticky mode, then put the word in the http://assets.languagepod101.com/dictionary/japanese/audiomp3.php?kana=XXX&kanji=YYY url to get the correct audio for it.
It's all very 面倒臭い.

I seriously thought this kind of thing was just limited to 12 year olds in the comment sections on Youtube, it's sad that the more Japanese I learn, the more second-hand embarrassment I get from weebs.

Yes. The first time you see the card you're not expected to know it. So if you realise you don't know the card you have correctly answered the card.

Why would you think that you need to see every single card twice within the span of a minute? What the fuck would that even accomplish?

I read a specific blog, and the poster is clearly native Japanese. However, he often posts in English, and it's so good you assume that he's either lived in America for a time (amongst the nogs), or is part American.

"Today, I couldn't not bump this new Riri x Drake shit"

How do you guys hide learning japanese from your families and friends?

I personally only look up japanese shit with internet explorer that doesn't share information with my real browser.

If my family or friends walk next to my laptop I fucking alt+tab it to firefox like I'm doing something else.

The worst I've gotten was when one of the girls in my college class saw me writing kanji in my notebook.

I fucking had to explain that I was drawing a Chinese logo as a tattoo I wanted for a while.

She believed me, but that shit was too close. Stopped studying Japanese during classes.

Furigana isn't just for explaining pronounciation etc, it can be used to give alternate words to explain the meaning, nuance, stylistic choice etc. Kanji in furigana is pretty common in for example VNs

Not sure why it's used in that case there though
>>
>>144480691
I don't really give a fuck who knows, I don't try and hide it but I also never talk about it

My family don't know what the difference is between China and the rest of Asia, and constantly ask me how my "Chinese is going", and my friends are all ultra normies that don't understand the concept of doing something that you're not getting paid for

My family never touches my computer, probably because I've always made a huge deal out of it even if they just look at my screen.

I think the reason it works is because they all pretty much sense that using a computer is like my only hobby and source of relaxation, and I've explained to them that when I think someone might possibly be looking at my screen I get really self-conscious, even if I'm not doing anything weird, and it fucks up my ability to relax.

Depression is genetic.

I have 0 friends. The only time I leave my home is for class. Afterwards I return immediately.

I have never been outside of my hometown. I speak so little of my native language that I have struggles to even respond to my teachers in my own language.

But guess what. I'm the happiest person I know.

Meanwhile my Normie brother with a child hundreds of friends and a good career has crippling depression. With a suicide attempt that paralyzed his left arm permanently.

I believe depression is a mental disease you are born with. Like autism, you can't really cure it. You were always meant to be depressed or not depressed at all.

I've been learning Japanese since 2010 and I can only barely read simple manga now. It's not a problem with being a slow learner, I just got distracted too easily and too often and once I missed my reps for a few days I lost all confidence and ended up avoiding my reps and learning in general for several months while I did stupid shit like play vidya instead, and this cycle happened several times.

Bullshit.

Any brain "disease" is also bullshit. It's just weak-willed people trying to find excuses for their actions/consequences.

I don't mean to brag but I'm the unluckiest person I've ever, ever seen. I even joke to friends that the universe conspires against whatever I want to do currently, and they even say "it doesn't look like you're kidding".

I could simply say "baaawww the world hates me" and do nothing being diagnosed with some Z brain disease but I say "fuck you world" and move on.

As twin studies show, genetics play an important role for depression, although one can't claim there to be a monocausality.

http://www.apa.org/helpcenter/understanding-depression.aspx
http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/doi/abs/10.1176/appi.ajp.163.1.109

http://depressiongenetics.stanford.edu/mddandgenes.html

[...]

>How do we know that genes play a role in causing depression? Scientists look at patterns of illness in families to estimate their “heritability,” or roughly what percentage of their cause is due to genes. To do this we find people with the disease who have a twin, and then find out whether the twin is also ill. Identical (monozygotic) twins share 100% of their genes, while non-identical (“fraternal” or dizygotic) twins share 50% of their genes. If genes are part of the cause, we expect a patient’s identical twin to have a much higher risk of disease than a patient’s non-identical twin. That is the case for major depression. Heritability is probably 40-50%, and might be higher for severe depression.

>This could mean that in most cases of depression, around 50% of the cause is genetic, and around 50% is unrelated to genes (psychological or physical factors). Or it could mean that in some cases, the tendency to become depressed is almost completely genetic, and in other cases it is not really genetic at all. We don’t know the answer yet.

>We can also look at adoption studies, to see whether an adopted person’s risk of depression is greater if a biological parent had depression. This also seems to be the case.
>>

Past.

"I was thinking." or something like that.

>>144486838
You do realise people that have shit like depression are incapable of just saying "fuck you world" and moving on, right? If it was possible for everyone to just magically declare that everything's amazing at their own will then surely shit like negative emotions in general and suicide wouldn't even be a thing

I can't help but call bait whenever someone says this kind of shit because it just seems like no one could possible be stupid enough to believe it, but you never know, there are a lot of stupid people in the world

I shouldn't even reply, I really don't want the thread to get derailed or anything

Look at the clock in the bottom right corner.
Now look a little bit to the left.
There should be an empty space in your task bar.
The task bar is the bar at the bottom of your screen.
On that empty task bar space, click with the right button of your mouse.
Now look for something that says Tool Bars or similar. It should be the first option.
Now look for something that says Idiom Bar. It should be the second option if you count from the bottom. Tick it.
Now you should have the bar with two letters next to the clock. Now you can right click on it like the other anon showed you on that webm.
If this doesn't work, give up. You will never learn Japanese.

This is how it looks for me.
>Now you should have the bar with two letters next to the clock.
I had that from the beginning - right clicking on those letters doesn't give me Settings, and left clicking brings me to this >>144490241

I think it depends on what you want to say.

~ながら seems to be used like "during X, Y goes"
~間に seems more like something regular and in the past "in the time X happens"
~時に seems more like "at that time of X"
~と中で seems more appropriate for something like "when I was in the middle of X"

And probably tons of others but these are the ones I can remember now.
