God im FUCKED
>>21510496reminder to not take financial advice from him thank you
It's delusions of grandeur one of the biggest signs of dekinai? N3 niggers calling native retards setting their goals to surpass natives always seem to be the ones who break after the realization they don't much after years of study
Asking again from last threadCan any Matt patreons link his Q&A videos? Specifically the May 18th one
>>21510764Where did you get this number? I tried to estimate the number of sentences in anime a while ago and didn't get close to that number. After getting rid of subtitle timings and removing very short/filler sentences (anything less than 7 characters iirc), I was only getting 200-300 per episode.
>>21510871reading is always the better choice. don't listen to him justifying his priority of anime over study
>>21510888i agree with u in theory but if the man wants to anime he should prob animecuz enjoyin urself enough to stay engaged and keep doin it is #1
>>21510895listening practice is also a good thing. i'd prefer dramas over anime for that, but anime still can serve as a study tool, especially with subs2srs and anki
reading is better if you dont wanna become good
literally just do what you want to know my god what is wrong with you people
wheres the guy who cant figure out what demo meansgot a sentence for you to mine
>>21510871based on my calculations 400 to 500 is more realistic
>>21510977id been keepin this in case i saw someone ask about de again lol
>>21510871>anything less than 7 characters iircThat's like half of all normal dialogue. You have to remember that kanji are extremely information dense. Do a character count and then divide by something like 10 or 15.
Why do people pay attention to the Japanese-learning Youtube community even though we already all know the answer to why immersing is important in vocabulary acquisition?
>Get to lesson 18 in genki 2>Realize that the Genki deck I downloaded off the COR only had the words up to this partOh no shit might be getting difficult
>>21511034If you've read that much of Genki till now, you should be ready to start a mining deck, bro.
>>21510496Are you stupid? Stop making threads when the other one is still healthy and kicking. This isn't /v/
other thread is too long didnt read
say that in japanese
no I meant the other anon after you oh well
Who else here still on their 不応期 since their last 抜きゲー session?
Since MAGICAL ANIME CARDS are the new shit, we should really try to get some anime recommendation chart going.I start:>Peppa Pig: It's very annoying and childish. But it's probably the best thing to start out. Just watch it in your native language and see how fucking slow and simple they talk.>Totoro: It's a very nice kids movie and I was really surprises about how easy it is to understand.>Tanoshii Moomin Ikka: This is my personal favorite. 78 episodes of pretty simple content for children, but it's still enjoyable enough to not lose interest.>Shirokuma Cafe: Also pretty simple and has a running choke where they get into little misunderstandings about homophobes. >Chobbits: Very cute and has a character that starts to learn the language.>Maid Sama!: Not sure why, but I thought it's quite easy to understand.Things that get recommended, but didn't work out for me:>Non Non Biyori: For some reason I thought it's hard to understand, even though they don't use that many words. Also I think it's boring and wasn't appealing to me.>Flying Witch: For me it was difficult to understand and they have quite some jokes around hard to understand dialects.>Rilakuma: Easy to understand, but there is no were near enough dialogue. Also I though it hard to watch, actually almost worse than Peppa. It's for absolute toddlers. Pro Tip: You can watch with some kind of narration turned on (for blind people maybe?), this adds a lots of dialogue, but the content is still bad.
introducing the new mahou shoujo kaado
>>21511332Non Non Biyori is the shit I got words from it like 蕨 薇 酢漿草 蓬Recommendation from me is 少女終末旅行 they use very simple Japanese but it's still fun and interesting
>>21511332>Since MAGICAL ANIME CARDS are the new shitLiterally just Quiztard and 2 other people do them.
honestly anyone who says nnb is boring u should disown immediatelyeven if u are desperate for friends who buy into ur shit
>>21511349>蕨 薇 酢漿草 蓬Yeah that might be the reason, I didn't like it. It's listed as one of the shows with the smallest vocab on Netflix, but I don't even know what those mean in English.>少女終末旅行Sure I can see how this might be a really good beginner series.>>21511365I'm sorry I can't help it. Usually I'm quite a conformist, but NNB, Lucky Star and Clannad are things, I personally just can't get into.
You got it wrong I don't force anyone to do anime cards, nor do I force anyone to argue for themthey are merely a tool I have revealed to you that you are free to use for your own gainI don't gain anything financially or go famous or anything like thatit's just 慈善事業 from me
i wasnt talkin about forcin or profit i just meant u want to be accepted
I don't know dudeI struggle more with people who are on the same wavelength with me which is why I rarely actually respond to people saying nice things about mereally while prospering in competitive environments and feeling the best and most clear of mind surrounded by people hostile towards mebuilding friendly relationships with people has always felt like work for me, an increasing stack of expectations and responsibilitiesbut it's different for enemies and rivals who expect nothing of the sort of you, the only thing that matters is how good you aremaybe that is why I haven't been able to remove myself from DJTbecause this is the only place where such an environment can exist, while in every other place somebody will crack down on it and force certain behavioursI suppose I am thankful to you for providing me a home DJTI prosper thanks to you
Redpil me on reading speed. I have been stuck at 200-300字／分 for months now even though I pretty much never look up words any more. What can I do? I've have been reading a lot these months as well
>>21511332>Also I think it's boring and wasn't appealing to me.Shit taste. I've rewatched it like 5 times.
oops meant rtk
>>21510613those were the days
how do rtk friends read this 唵 呼嚧呼嚧 戰馱利 摩橙祇 娑婆訶
Wow mods decided to trash the previous thread instead of deleting this one catering to the retard making threads early. Bad decision.
>>21511719why do you guys like this so much? Is there some kind of zombie twist after a couple of episodes? I don't even think it's cute. It's just annoying little shits doing annoying little shit.
from last thread>>21511677if i watch anime without subs i dont look up words, i just let the anime voices wash over me and go with the flow. those are usually shows i've either seen or read the manga so i dont have a fear of missing anything important from the plot
>>21511395lucky star aged really bad and clannad always was shit garbage for spoiled brats>>21511498absolutely did not read any of this post
i have never taken djt's recommendations for anything and also rarely watch the videos you post
>>21509559>mining shit you're potentially only going to see once in your obscure anime>not sticking with decks made from statistical prevalence
>>21511738wtf is that
>>21511728Even worse, they delete all the threads you post in immediately.
if only one of us had that kind of power
>>21511757looks like some kind of dies irae meme chant
>>21511744I usually also do this, but sometimes I really want to quickly look up a single word I didn't understand for quite some time. Like I said, this is basically how I learned english.Any recommendations on e-dicts? Money doesn't matter, but it should be able to understand romaji / kana and have a mechanical keyboard.
>>21511332only mary (quiztard) and the brazilian tranny are actually doing anime cards
if money doesnt matter just buy a japanese girlfriend lol
>>21511762some mod deleted the thread when I was typing a long post once. these fuckers are watching our every step
>>21511778I use akebi on android, the interface is better than jisho (except for radical lookups which jisho wins). Or you could just have a JP sub file and only pull it up when you want to see a word. If you want yomichan lookup you can use this https://github.com/kaervin/subserv-mpv-plugin
>>21511787sorry only interested in 2d, might buy a voice actress one day though.
what's the incentive to having a vocabulary over 20000 words but not getting good at japanesethis is what separates matt from the card drones
>>21511349Quiz-chan if I told you to actually show me what any of those plants look like you wouldn't be able to do it, yet you bother to mine them. Where does that disconnect in your brain come from?
https://streamable.com/brr8pimagine this being your favorite show lmao
>>21511802to make this vid obviouslyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQCFyD_Q51k#t=670
>>21511798I also thought about buying a new phone or tablet for this purpose only. Because my normal one needs a lock screen and that is quite bothersome for looking up words.Hm maybe a netbook would be the ideal compromise.
>>21511544Nothing, just keep at it. That's all.
>>21511332>anime cardsThanks Quizmaster!
>>21511802are u trying to say matt isnt a card drone lol
>>21511813I bet your average university school girl wouldn't be able to read this shit. Except she is in the linguistics department of course.
>>21511824i think hes just polluting the thread with his pepe le pew posting first and foremost but then secondary to that that saying matt is both a card tard but also good at japanese
>>21511498>but it's different for enemies and rivals who expect nothing of the sort of you, the only thing that matters is how good you arelol since when have any of our "enemies" in djt given a shit about how good you are
>>21511808I know how they look because they actually show up in the anime and I got pictures of them on my cards in addition to that.Besides, learning to read the Kanji is both to initially create a mental entry for it but also just to be able to read it when it shows up in any text I read. If somebody starts talking about 蓬 tea I'm going to feel a lot more like I know what is being talked about when I am aware it's a plant and what kind. Besides it's minimal effort to learn it. It's interesting and fun so I'll do that. There is no disconnect expect you seemingly thinking I put a significant amount of time into memorizing these when I have a method that makes it efficient.
>>21511544gotta get more speaking practice because that'll improve your prediction ability and your processing ability, which is a big part of fast reading.btw i'm n5 and this is a theory i've pulled out of my ass.
I will yurusu your taido of the past if you sing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gswZN3hARJo, quiz
>>21511841saw a post like this on reddit
>>21507790the biggest chance is prolly that we don't copy/paste reddit posts as much
>>21511843same but only if he sings this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXHFr6YlMDo#t=66 and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXHFr6YlMDo#t=170
>>21511839Do you actually learn them with the translation though or just to read them?I know these words in English but I could not tell you what they're called in my native language.
>>21511855I don't learn the English translation. Mostly I focus on the reading but I usually have an image of how they look in my head and the context I got it from.
>>21511808not only that but those are written in katakana even in academic contexts...
>>21511828matt cant either so the only difference is he aint a university school girl and thats the real loss>>21511850same but he has to do this whole song not just parts
dang i didnt know tobidora was such a big event for the thread
you have to watch this manga
>>21511349Say about that tripfag whatever you want, but the tip about that Girls last Tour anime was really great. Just finished the first episode and I have to say, it's probably the most beginner friendly anime with compelling content I have seen so far.
I want to w̶a̶t̶c̶h̶ read translated Korean manhwa, are the translations any good?
hey guys, is it better to learn kanji isolated or pick it up along the way through context from input (anime, manga, etc)?
>>21510496Hey, I recognize that guy. It's the pitch accent dude.
wtf kanji come from words not anime loool
>>21511872I FUCKING LOVE that manga
>>21511916i recognize him as the trick dude from the quadhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFo0H_STV5w
>>21511872How to watch
>>21511914Ask yourself why you want to learn japanese? If you are motivated to read a lot, starting with kanji is the way to go. If you want to talk and understand it's probably fine to be a bit lazy with kanji at the beginning. You could for example just learn the ones from Tae Kim and or the Genki books at first. Just be aware that learning kanji, also means that you will have to read a lot for the rest of your live or you will forget them sooner than your high school algebra.
>>21511930it's very impressive and crinch at the same time
Is learning the lyrics to Japanese songs a good way to practice speaking Japanese?In case you give a fuck, these are the songs I sing along to:https://youtu.be/ZJGu-PJfICUhttps://youtu.be/HE2871aesMUhttps://youtu.be/9Gj47G2e1Jchttps://youtu.be/3xe21H1i_0Mhttps://youtu.be/k-KAY_Glmn4https://youtu.be/OVEtmKwS7GQ
>>21511914Input. Make anki cards for radicals + kanji + words you come across.>>21511921Anime have dialogue, which have words, which have a way of being written down.
The preferred nomenclature is EATING manga, not watching. Please be 注意
>>21511963anki ain't working, 兄貴
>>21511959was stoked about the 1st 2 links well besides the incredibly atrocious subs like really fuckin bad lol rip that bandbut no not really but if u like doin karaoke still do it but it doesnt contribute that much to ur actual functional japanese ability
>>21511966what a surprise ur 1 of the sickos
>>21511975if you want, here's a channel with their live performances and music vids on it.https://www.youtube.com/user/shindabokunokanojoMeh, at least I'll be karaoke champ and possibly have qt nipponese grorious waifus all over me.
>>21511994yah ive been all thru their shiti think the fat dude started another band but i forget if it was with some of the same ppl or not

Yo, Quiz, how would you make a light novel card?

lads, how do I say "im gay" in japanese? asking for a friend
>>21512042im studying ARt in japanese and i just *spins paintbrush around thumb* understand it>>21512044アイムゲイデス
>>21512036why would I make a card from a light novel lolI just read it
>>21512043If I'm an autophilic narcissist, should I record myself doing a cute girl voice while reading a sentence off the LN?
>>21512060yes but only if u post the vocaroo itt
>>21512042Anime bob ross
I can't quiet make sense of this sentence.>皆で花火するから隠しておいてBecause I'm going to play with fireworks with everyone, I hid them?
I want to watch Naruto. He motivates me because he was a loser in the school and he became a hokage. I can do it too!
>>21512070more context pleez
>>21511992dont let him color ur perspective of the manga is eating crew
hey guys are japanese schools really so cool like in animeslike with clubs and cute girls who like shy guys and stuff
>>21512080why dont u ask matt
japanese schools are actually run down and dinky dreary shit holesbut yet u grow really fond of ur times there the further along in life u go
>>21512083cuz im lookin for more of a whole school perspective and not just incredible detail about the toilet
just wanted to sharerobotics;notes is probably meh as a piece of writing but im in love with settingsunny tanegashima, cute girls in robotics club, they dont care about future or fucking nightmare of a world, they just enjoy themselves on a sunny island in japan living the dreamive read that tanegashima is a shithole with old men in real lifebut i still kinda want to visit it
>>21512086we still have a mystery on our handsi think we should ask quiztard err master cuz hes the best at japanese here and has really good comprehension so he should have no problem explaining this 1 to u
>>21512100japan is actually a shithole with old men in real life
>>21512112what isnt a shithole with old men
>>21512115i was gonna say this thread but lol
Should I consider buying a kindle?
>>21512086>>21512107I mean it's still not enough context we have no clue what he is saying maybe one interpretation is did you come to leave something with me againright, because I will do fireworks with everyone please hide itbut it could mean something completely different depending on the context
>>21512124yes and u should also consider buying a large jug ur gonna need it
>>21512124Dude don't be afraid to drop few thousand bucks on learning Japanese
wow it was actually that easy i thought thatd be more of a ordeal lol
>>21512142I generally don't reply to dumbass questions but someone called me out so I made an exception but I'd prefer people don't ask stupid shit
Guys is it truly the intermediate hell where you can follow along something without pausing to look shit up but at the same time miss a lot of the details and subtleties of different expressions?I guess its a definite improvement to before where I wouldn't have been able to even follow at all.
>>21511959cant listen to stay with me without feeling so fucking down i just want to go to sleep forever. fuck this brain i was given
I thought you guys could help me with this.I have a pdf document that is japanese. It has the text encoded so I was able to extract it as an html doc. when opening it on firefox, rikai works and allows me to look up words. but when i put it on my kindle the dictionary wont detect words. any solution?
>>21512183yes have u tried leveling up ur nihongo力
>>21512071i wanna watch hxh because gon becomes a dark twisted sociopath and i wanna learn to let loose and be free like him.https://files.catbox.moe/929gcd.mp4
>>21512186This book is fairy easy so I only dont know like a word or 2 per page. but I would rather have the ability to look up a word. any real solutions?
wtf is a sortie??
>>21512189I remember watching this as my first fucking anime and thinking a) everything is this awesome and b) wow, it has over a hundred fucking episode, all anime must have this much Boy was I wrong, wish I'd have savored it more.
>>21512199if that was ur first anime im truly sorry u missed so much good anime just cuz u were born too late
>>21512201You forget how the internet works/?
>>21512203yah but timing matters dude
>>21512207I'm sorry your way of coping with your old age is by thinking it matters when you watch a fuckin cartoon my dude
>>21512209thats not really what its abouttheres things that were considered really bad during their time that became really cool and dope decades later and vice versaur prolly jsut too young to understand this concept because u have no perspective on the ever changing world lol
>>21512183maybe convert it to the amazon format, asw3 or whatever its called
>>21512219Good thing my enjoyment of something is not dependent on how other people perceive it.
>>21512195>he doesn't know French
>>21512242but thats just the thing its because the world has changed and shaped what u perceive to be good and dope that this happensin a way what u just said is entirely false because thats actually an impossibility by the very nature of consuming media in the first place lmaou aint ready to fuck with me squiddo
Is there a difference between (suru verb)をする and (suru verb)する?Like, I know をする is technically "to do X", but it still kinda looks like it means the same thing?Is it just a difference in connotations?
>>21512237I did, the problem is i highlight over a word, and not even a difficult word 「竜巻」, and it says the word is undetectable.
>>21512129this is why normalfags are poor.
>>21512195I havent seen this joke in a long ass time. what happened to djt? :(
>>21512270fagする means to perform faggish actions. fagをする means to "do" the fag.
>>21512270if its a verb then を doesnt attach to itif its a verb then putting する on it would make it weird and redundantをする is not a construct as を attaches to the thing before it and is independent of する
so when im reading am i supposed to be deciphering every detail of a sentence and figuring out what it means or just looking over it quickly and getting a general idea for what it means? this would probably be less painful if i didnt have to look up 99% of the words and guess what definition it is in the context
>>21512317>so when im reading am i supposed to be deciphering every detail of a sentenceno also stopped reading there
>>21512317Just feel the meaning bruh.
>>21512317i mean, if you define "looking over it" as skimming over vocab and getting a general idea for what it means in english then no. what u should be doing is following the grammar particles and getting a feel for what vocab goes where. dont need to pay attention to every detail. just the gist
>>21512328dont even have to do that just skip all the incomprehensible shit and go for the shit that is comprehensible and sprinkle in some lookups if u feel its vital to getting anything at all wrt the main idea
>>21512317just keep lernin japanese til your good brp
u gotta spend a long time reading nihongo like shit before more of it becomes accessible to uand if u force urself to go on a google expedition 5 times a sentence ur not gonna make it ever
>>21512201I don't get this mentality. what is stopping someone from watching older shows. i was born in 98 and have seen many shows from before i was born.>>21512317read easier works, have you eaten yotsuba yet?
>>21512317Focus on comprehending important sentences (that appear in infodumps or scene descriptions). Ignore useless sentences like jokes or h-scene dialogue.
>>21512332oh yeah, and i wouldnt spend more than 2 mins on a sentence. any longer than that is just a waste of time unless it's some super long shit
>>21512339ull understand someday i know what its like to be young and never think im gonna turn into the old guy thats gonna be like get off my lawn but alas it happened and its gonna happen to u its happened to everyone i know tho there are some that suppress it and lie to themselves to try to get around it but its still there
>>21512338>ur not gonna make it everNah. Only people who are consistently willing to Google explanations for unknown vocabulary & sentence constructions will make it. People who don't even care about that will never get good at understanding Japanese. They will just become good at clicking through stuff without comprehending what it means.
Watch a 15 minute Dolly video where she talks for 13 minutes about how she's the only one who can teach you a topic or watch this video for 2 minutes. Which do you choose? Gold Kokeshi niggers need not respond:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrQPlY3KkG4
sometimes i feel like im the only person who ate all volumes of yutsubato. anyone else?
What is the purpose of the particle(?) ぜ？Like ”やれやれだぜ” as an example.
I stopped after volume 2 because I wasn't really enjoying it and it felt like I was only doing it because it was recommended/for 404 girl memes. I go back and read a chapter every now and again though, when I'm feeling frustrated by my perceived lack of progress. Being able to blaze through a chapter when it took me forever when I first started makes me feel a lot better.
>>21512362I hate that gay ass doll
>>21512371makes you sound gei
>>21512365>tfw you don't have enough vocab to read YotsubatoWhen does this suffering end?
>>21512381Perfect I'm going to use it then
>>21512358no its good and advisable to google but not every single thing always all the time>>21512361kys
>>21512383once you read instead of playing flashcard games.
>>21512383When you realize that no matter how many Anki cards you pound into your gay little ass, you're still gonna have to look up tons of shit.
>>21512362problem is thats the only 1 good vid on that channel
>>21512342>h-scene dialogue>unimportantWhy would you skip the best part?
>>21512383Try Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.It has a bit of specialized mangaka vocab, but after you get used to that you shouldn't have that many problems at your level.Just start mining as soon as possible.
honestly if u wanna fast track ur nihongo learning just play the all ages versions of all games because lets face it ur in it for the amazing stories and would prefer it not to be tainted by the mandatory sex that the initial version required to be a marketable product lol
>>21512409it's pretty boring when you've already fapped and you're trying to learn nihongo and they just keep saying んんｎ。。。ああああああ
>>21512408Unfortunately, you're right. An entire series with curt videos like this would be amazing. That one video learned me that concept better than imabi, dolly, and Tae Kim did.>>21512414I'm in it for the degenerate porn that would make my mom cry if she knew I was looking at it.
>>21512414family version does not count as reading.
>>21512419>not going for round 2 immediatelyThe eroge you're playing is obviously not high quality enough.
>>21512419what about all the words they used for dick?dankon, nikusao, sao, nikubou, penisu, chinchin, ochinpo, danshiseki, etc etc
>>21512428i already onanii like 3 times a day, i can't keep up with the 6 back to back 2 stage h scenes.
is it possible to get fuuri killed off in axanael? the rest are at least tolerable but i hate her so fucking much to the point i just control f through everything she says and does
>>21512447why do you hate her so much? where did fuuri touch you?
>>21512414>>21512423u should be in it for the story but the ero is not optional>>21512444if u havent broke ur dick on eroge before can u even say ur learning nihongo>>21512447why is fuuri such a shitone of the great mysteries
>>21512455literally everything about her. her voice, her personality, her sprites, everything. she is so fucking annoying and generic it almost puts me to sleep
once i broke my dick but it was because of depression, i didn't have morning wood or sometimes it didn't stay hardbut now i'm fine and i have morning wood everyday :)
>>21512424Good thing his computer doesn't face the window
>>21512455she starts ok then she gets annoying and she culminates into the most selfish character in the vn which is a high bar to reach
i wrote the all ages thing as a joke cuz actually a lot of scripts get edited in other places outside of the ero for console releases not surprised none of u scrubs are grizzled erogamers that notice these things
>>21512482why would i have played a console port of a perfectly good eroge ?
>>21512457>if u havent broke ur dick on eroge before can u even say ur learning nihongoi dont even know :(
>>21512492sometimes ur on the go and just wanna keep reading on ur handheld gaming device
What should be my 1st VN, and why shouldn't it have all Loli heroines
>spend 30 minutes looking for what a word means, not in google, dictionaries, etc>go back to read it in context>character is acting like a total beginner at what they're doing>reread the word out loud>ビギナ
>>21512505u shoulda just posted it here so i coulda made the witty reply of "the thing u r" in 3 minutes
>>21512505check this one out, i'll give you a hint, it's not "sword of shotgun"
>>21512510i know this 1 cuz of my rap videos
>>21512501According to Heiseg, kids are the best teachers. I bet this is the real path to Nihongo, since you fulfill both the kid teacher and ero part in one go.
>>21512518hiesieg is just a huge pedophile thats why he was interested in japan in the 1st place
>take a picture of a japanese person>they freak the fuck out
>>21512501cause authors like to make them talk in pure kana and it'll be a pain in the ass to figure out which of the 50 possible homophones the bitch is talking about (assuming you're a beginner )
>>21512532what's this? looks cool
>>21512532What is this meme?
>>21512526thats true come to think of it if u wanna make a japanese person lose their shit and actually just murder u in the street immediately do all of the following things at the same timetake a picture of a japanese person while walking down the street while eating a hot dog sloppily dripping ketchup and shit everywhere while balancing a bowl rice on ur head with chopsticks sticking straight up out of it in the middle of the street during a anti foreigner rally
>>21512526in highschool we had japanese students visit every year. they took pictures of us a lot.
How do I stop subvocalizing in a chuuni character voice while reading (think of, like, Lelouch or Reinhardt)?
>>21512542yah but for them its like they are at the zoowhen u do it in japan the sacred holy land its actually very different
>>21512543go back thru the last 3 years of threads and click all my links
>>21512538japan gets angry at some stupid stuff *starts chasing car who flipped me off*
>>21512544>they are at the zooHaha stupid American monkeys
>>21512543Just listen to chuuni speaking 24/7>>21512496kek
>>21512543why do you want that?
>>21512548dude in some sea countries ppl honk their horns constantly and its not a signal of aggression its actually just the point of the horn in the first placeto alert ppl to where u are so every1 stays safe lmaowhereas in some monkey countries if u sound the horn its time to fight to the death cuz today aint ur day
>>21512526>>21512538you just have to walk around the streets harassing people with a raw octopus, throw it on windows and then on the back of a taxi, and then go and film a recently deceased suicide victim, that'll get em riled up
>>21512526i'd love to see a video of this. like that one dude who walks up to random strangers in the US and films them and they get progressively more and more pissed off. but less assholish.
>>21512538>>21512562I am just glad I have an american phone where I can turn the flash off. Sadly im 5 11 so it would be really hard to take upskirt shots.

>>21512575>>21512583why not just be a man and ask the ladies directly if u can see their underwear
>>21512554It's not very comfortable to be reading some shitty h-manga about a dude fucking his 9 year old sister while having some 貴族-like voice saying "そして、おマンコにちんぽが入れた。"

>>21512598i dont like it>>21512601thats right never escalate dudethe world is just 1 giant troll and theres a fuckhead out there every day thats willnig to just ruin his life to fuck u up cuz u tried to escalate
>>21512598to add im not surprised this is ur true nature oreimo guy its very fitting
quiz when you wake up tomorrow i need some clarification on what exactly you did to get good. you recommend beginners watch anime with japanese subtitles and you said this would be sufficient reading practice but do you think it's also good listening practice? because i keep hearing from other people that watching anime with japanese subtitles just trains your reading and not your listening. is this where the anime cards come in? we should rely on anime cards to develop our listening? also is this what you did or did you also occasionally read lns and stuff.
>>21512614no worries jamal, after i move to japan i might even post a picture ;)
>>21512638idk what do you want me to take a picture of?
>>21512618Hes never finished a vn so calling him good is a little...
>>21512644a japanese person

>友達のおかげで、映画はただで見られた。Why is で here?
>>21512698おかげで is a set phrase.read more
>>21512698cuz if it wasnt ud be fucked
>>21512701shit i meant the second one
>>21512618Lmfao.Also I’ve seen quiztard call people drones and shit for “dude just tell me exactly what to do”
>>21512701well be that as it may theres still a grammatical reason that even curedolly could explain>>21512706its the same reason as the first so
>>21512618not so hard, just read oreimo, and you will be better than everyone else here
>>21512709doesn't matter if you wanna be the best you have to copy the best. "doing it your own way" is bullshit
>>21512726cool, im not insane.. but the first one makes grammatical sense to me without knowing it was a phrase. what's the difference, i'm curious.
>>21512733well its like タダで手に入るもの except ur going to 見る the 映画 and not 手に入る it
>>21512741i have no idea what you're talking about cause i don't know what kind of comparison you're trying to make
i guess u just gotta watch more anime or look up で
世間ずれがしていないこと。ういういしいこと。また、そのさま。does さま mean "appearance/state" here, so this would be:>being innocent/unsophisticated, or the appearance of that.
@ all beginners don't make the same mistake i did and pick a "long" vn for your first onei'm pretty sure i'm gonna die of age before i finish this i mean don't get it twisted i love it i've really enjoyed it so far but god DAMN i cannot even see the light at the end of the tunnel
>>21512821how many characters do you get through a day? if you texthook and use the HTML template from the /r/vnhooking guide it tells you.
>>21512732do what natives do then
>>21512844idk bud i just play the game. and it's true that i only have time to put in an hour or two per day at best. that's i guess the main thing that made this a bad idea. i should also probably stop posting and read instead huh
i only average like 2500 characters a day at best no matter how many words i learn so i'm fucked
>>21512856If we assume 30 average characters per textbox you are only reading 83 vn pages per day which IS not a lot of reading (tm)
why is this legal? why haven't we beheaded every single person that puts more than one episode in a single file, the fuck am i supposed to do with these
>>21512908i know. and i know people only got good fast at japanese by reading like 6-8 hours a day and i bet they get through like 30k characters or some crazy shit. i just can't bring myself to speed up my reading. i have to ponder for minutes over every other sentence.
>>21512821whys it matter how often u finish if u enjoy it anyway
>>21512917it just feels like i'd like to read a bigger variety of things rather than spending more than half a year on one single thingit's probably just because of my past as a gamer, "completion = good progress" is stuck in my brain
>>21512915that'll go away if you keep at it, anon. I believe in you
>>21512911Just don't use them
>>21512945no, fuck you, i'm separating them and i'll post all of them properly timed for the release i'm watching once i'm done

I incorrectly mined 鳩尾 as みずおち more than a year ago AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I don't know what the fuck I did, but all of a sudden now when I'm typing Japanese, it doesn't type in romanji and then covert to kana. Instead, all of my keys just correspond with a certain kana as if I was using one of those Japanese keyboards. How do I change it back?
>>21513308don't mine shit that's above your level kids
Nevermind I got it.
>>21513317solar plexus isn't a complex word. but I remember when I saw it the first time it was in pure kanji form so I just picked the first yomikata I've found on google. turns out it was the wrong one.
>>21511365I read the first volume of the のんのんびよりmanga (raw ofc) before I even knew there was an anime for it! And yes it was entertaining to me too, lots of good words in there as well.I’m gonna try watching the anime and see how similar the dialogue is and how far it goes compared to the manga. 楽しみ！！
>>21512618So my experience is that anime with japanese subtitles DOES train your listening — to an extent! Following along with the text as you listen, or mostly listening and peeking at the text to check etc, WILL help you associate the sounds with the language. But there becomes a point where it stops helping as much and starts becoming more of a crutch.If you’re a beginner, you do not have to worry about that happening. It will be a great help for you to listen along with subtitles right now. After 100+ hours of that, as well as developing your vocabulary a lot more, see how you fair with no subs. Then go from there, watching more raw etc. There are stages to the progression.
I’m craving a big hot bowl of authentic 豚骨ラーメン …
I forgot the grammatical term but how do you know when the second kanji in a compound changes sound?Like k - g, h - b/p, t - d
>>21513514that's it, thanks!
>>21513493Isn't watching anime with japanese subtitles for listening practice like doing a test with the answer under every question? I suppose if it is just practice you could call it more like studying from a textbook. Turning them off is like taking the test for the material.
>>21513493>>21513540This is why you should have listened to jamal and watch anime with eng subs...
dont stray from the chart
Fuck my reading is slow. I've spent a month playing hanahira but if I played it in English it would probably only take me half an hour to get to where I am now. I don't seem to be getting any faster either. At this rate I might be able to finish it by the end of the year.
>>21513633read things that are actually interestingnot just interesting to you but in generalmight i recommend something about 祠s
>>21513633>a month playing hanahiraIt should've taken 4 hours at most. How many routes have you gotten through?
>>21513661I consider every alternate choice to be a route.
>>21513633are u enjoying urself or forcing it>>21513655>It should've taken 4 hours at most.not if uve never read anything before lol

>>21513847just graduate to nhk
>>21513854i didnt follow news before learning jap, but i found it an interesting way to learn the languageim more interested in studying the language via it than the actual news
>>21513847You could try TBS news, there is also some yahoo.jp site, where you can read news from a few different sites; I am currently on my phone, so I can't send you a link

>>21513712>out 20 shotsI didn't know there were that many CGs I hadn't unlocked yet.By the way, have you tried using a texthooker?
>>21513540>Isn't watching anime with japanese subtitles for listening practice like doing a test with the answer under every questionwhat you autists fail to realize is that language learning doesn't always have to be a TEST!some things are about just training associations. if you hear a sentence and look at the written sentence at the same time, your brain will have no choice but to start to associate the two. that process is also a vital part of learning especially for beginners who are new to both spoken and written language.
>>21513548>This is why you should have listened to jamal and watch anime with eng subs...jamal doesn't know jack
>>21513963Where would you put 読売？
>>21513974Did you read the next sentence?
a beginner's main goals for listening practice are1. getting used to how spoken words and phrases sound in japanese -- where it's natural to pause, hearing what natural "pitch accent" sounds like (doesn't mean they have to practice it, before some retards hop on my dick)2. learning to associate written words and sentences and grammar with the way they sound correctly spoken by nativesonce those goals are achieved THEN that's when it's time for goals like "comprehend spoken japanese at full speed without subtitles" enter the picture. trying to skip to that step before securing the first two is a recipe for completely unnecessary frustration. making things harder for yourself does not necessarily equal better results. get that shitty self-punishing thinking out of your autistic skulls
>>21514002a little after 産経

>>21514110Why though, one of the best parts of learning things is spotting them in the wild for the first time and recognising the pattern and understanding. You get that feeling that what you're doing is actually valid and you are learning.

well u arent supposed to make a new thread till the old 1 dies thats how it always was since the beginning
>>21514527Not knowing an extremely difficult language when you go to visit is not disrespecting anything. Would you be worried about "disrespecting the culture" of any other country if you went to visit and didn't speak the native language? Holy fuck weebs are retarded sometimes.Don't touch the language unless you're actually into it. Go to Japan and enjoy your time there as a tourist. Like any other country, they'll care a lot more about your general behavior like not littering, being loud and obnoxious etc.
since when have 4channers cared about tradition we buck the trend and do it our own way
>>21514566well u see its more fun that way cuz then like 3 ppl make threads and its a battle to see who survives
what a great feature.
>>21514544>>21514550グレトですよこいつは>>21514565I would feel disrespectful if I visited a place and hardly spoke a lick of their language. Also to pick up qt3.14 real life animu girl
>>21514576Boy are you in for a rude awakening when you realize Japan's just a regular country and nobody gives a fuck about you being able to string a few sentences together. From your prior post you basically know 0 Japanese so enjoy 2-3 years of daily study so you don't feel like you're insulting the culture lmao
>>21514527>>>/trv/you don't need to know any japanese to enjoy traveling in japan
honestly if u dont wanna insult the culture then dont disgrace the language with ur gaijin stinkjapanese ppl would prefer to have u not actively crippling their own japanese and honestly if i was a dad out with his kids and there was some gaijin blowhard spewing mangled japanese id knock him out cuz i dont have enough arms to cover all my kids ears
>>21514593implying the average japanese middle aged manlet has enough punching power to knock out any westerner
>>21514597it doesnt take much power if u get em on the chin just right dude
im so sick of you rich braindead westerners who can afford to go to japan with your gay ass lack of any jap skills and brainiacs who actually know more than mere basics have to stay home and read your faggy posts, because they happened to be born in the wrong part of the world where they cannot afford le random trip to le quirky Japan xD
>>21514598im not convinced, most of them couldn't even reach my chin
>>21514599Fucking hell nothing sweeter than the tears of a raging shitskin third worlder lmao
>>21514625no, just a slavi'm glad i made your day with my butthurt
>>21514620well honestly youd be lucky if they just wanted to do fisticuffs anyway cuz the truth they aint gonna fight a gaijin they are gonna unsheathe their katana or switchblade or just roll up brandishing a large kitchen knife and proceed to purify the land that way
>>21514629I'm also a Slav for what it's worth (yes I know I'm also a third worlder, it's still funny)
hey how do you say im gay in japanese
>>21514580>so enjoy 2-3 years of daily study so you don't feel like you're insulting the culture lmaoFor one, I'm trying to only learn enough to get around easily. Secondly, I'm a poorfag so it'll probably take me 2-3 years to get enough money to visit :^)>>21514589Well maybe I do need to know some Japanese to enjoy Japan.>>21514593>id knock him outJapanese people tend to avoid confrontations. And I doubt you could knock me out, you slant-eyed sideways pussy having yellow skinned rice-eating anime loving gook.
>>21514599don't worry bro, I'm a braindead westerner and I can't afford a trip to Japan either.
>>21514658Christ you're a complete and utter fucking moron. Good luck.
>>21514658just cuz they tend to doesnt mean ur still not rollin the dice dudetheres a guy in fact many guys (and girls) in japan right now who is at his/her wits end and is ready to give in and become chaos incarnate and just rip ur guts out and strew them around in the middle of the streeti hope ur prepared for the dangers is all>>21514665https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-l3_gwIOTGI#t=147
>>21514527The only phrases you need to know to travel to Japan are "あの,[place name]はどこですか？", "ありがとうございます。", "これはいくらですか？" (+ the expected response).You should probably know numbers (not all the counters, but at least 1-10, ひゃく, せん, まん, and the つs, like ひとつ, ふたつ, みっつ, etc.), the four cardinal points, right (みぎ), and left (ひだり) too.Signs in train stations are full of hiragana, and menus usually have hiragana or katakana too.Travelling to Japan knowing only a few words in Japanese is probably not optimal, but it's better than nothing.
>>21514658I don't like you but despite that I'm going to give you some advice.Buy genki 1 & 2 make sure to not skip any problems, take it slowly if you have too.After 6 month or a year of that you get hellotalk and start using Japanese with Japanese people don't eat manga or watch anime as a beginner because they use中二病 Japanese and that will make you sound like a weeb.If you want to go hardcore then buy rtk with genki so you can learn kanji too.
>>21514700fuck off dude why are you helping him with all the good shit
Why do you people entertain the pea brain who said he knows nothing and probably doesn't give two fucks about learning anything asking about travel in Japan instead of properly telling him to fuck off like he should? This more than anything else makes me want to stop browsing the thread. I can live with you guys being a bunch of retards incapable of learning Japanese, but if you are the equivalent of redditor mouth breathers then I have no interesting wasting another second with you. You made me seriously consider not posting anymore, because this is all way too pathetic for me to even be worth looking at.
because im bored and dont take a fucking thread on 4chan as seriously as your retarded ass does. feel free to stop posting, nobody would give a single fuck
>>21514717look quiz i consider you a trainwreck and so one of my priorities is keeping you in this thread for the entertainment but i know that entertaining that idiot's dumb question is not actually going to make you leave, so if i entertain him i just piss you off and that's a win.
>>21514717how do I learn Jap, i know can and can understand NHK Jap EASY?
>>21514658>Well maybe I do need to know some Japanese to enjoy Japan.Unless you're extremely extroverted, and actually have a high degree of conversational Japanese knowledge, you shouldn't worry yourself about having to know lots of Japanese to be able to have long talks with strangers. If you can read some manga or understand what people talk about on TV, then so be it.If you just want a basic set of phrases to survive, you really don't need anything but this:>>21514697 and probably a few basic phrases you can get off Google Translate. BTW, watching Kiniro Mosaic or reading Yotsubato might help to learn a bit of basic Japanese.
>>21514658honestly if u know about as much as this guy ur good to gohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2FGgYp6mdk#t=23
>>21513646i've seen 祠 quite a bit in anime and some games, i'm willing to be she knows the word but not the kanji
>>21514734Download and set up Yomichan + anki, start mining words you'd care to learn.If you want a primer on grammar, look at one of the guides on itazuraneko. Visualizing Japanese Grammar is probably the easiest one to understand, while, on the other end, Imabi is the one that you'll have to spend the most time with, but that'll actually teach you how to glue Japanese words together.
>>21514763>but not the kanjiisn't that the point
do i have to be college educated to have a high IQ japanese girlfriend or is being a good looking white guy enough? i'm not looking for anything too crazy. 120-130 IQ would be good. for comparison my IQ is around 110. i understand how important it is and i want my children to be smarter than me.
>>21514770i'm saying she probably does know it just forgot about it, not that uncommon, see https://streamable.com/ppx8k. it's not really a rare word if you read, you should still learn it
>>21514776Reminder.Also, read Cioran or Linkola to take into consideration why you shouldn't have children.
uhh girls see potential mates in terms of dollar signs dude the sooner u accept the way of the world the better off u arehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aISY74Gh7D4
>>21514784i'm an epistemic anti-realist who follows his instincts so i don't really care that suffering outweighs the positives, so i'm OK with having kids. also the only people who would follow this philosophy are disproportionately wealthy and educated so this philosophy just causes more harm than good.
i wouldnt wanna have kids now cuz the world could become uninhabitable by humans by as soon as 2050 lol

>>21514804>In August 2009, Arudou—acting as the chair of FRANCA (the Foreign Residents and Naturalized Citizens Association)—began a letter-writing campaign to protest an advertisement by McDonald’s Japan featuring a bespectacled, mildly geeky, 43-year-old American Japanophile known as Mr. James—a burger mascot who proclaims his love for the fast-food outlet in broken katakana Japanese. Writing in The Japan Times, Arudou argued that the "Mr. James" campaign perpetuates negative stereotypes about non-Japanese Caucasian minorities living in Japan, and demanded that McDonald’s Japan withdraw the advertisement: "Imagine McDonald's, a multinational that has long promoted cultural diversity, launching a McAsia Menu in America featuring a deep-bowing, grimacing Asian in a bathrobe and platform sandals saying 'Me likee McFlied Lice!' or 'So solly, prease skosh honorable teriyaki sandrich?'" Time magazine's Coco Masters concluded: "To protest Mr. James as a stereotype of a minority population in Japan because the Ohio native fails to speak or write Japanese fluently, dresses like a nerd and blogs about burgers only ends up underscoring the fact that there really aren't a lot of foreigners who fit the bill running around Japan." This guy is paving the way for us gaijin to take over japan. god bless
>>21511332hey dude, where do I get Jap subs from for those series that you recommended like Moomins? do you recommend using subs at all for 'easy' series like that?
>>21514818That makes sense, especially since that way it’s more obvious that さ is sentence filler.
>>21514871imagine if all of japan turned into roppongi lmfao
>>21514863Living in Japan is expensive as fuck. Besides, Japanese people don't really like gaijin that much. They can probably tolerate your presence for a few weeks as a tourist, but probably not for months. If you browse 4chan, you're more likely than not a serious introverted autist. I doubt such a person would thrive any better in Japan than in your home country.btw read schopenhauer or ecclesiastes>>21514877itazuraneko has a large collection of subs for anime.Subs + textractor + yomichan is the best way to look words up in anime dialogue. You might probably not come across lots of heavy vocabulary, but if you actually want to learn Japanese from anime, it'd be better to look up as many words as possible, even if you only add 1/10 new words to an anki deck.
>>21514915>Living in Japan is expensive as fuck.not really no unless u choose to live somewhere expensive
>>21514915>textractoraren't those used for games? can i use it for video subs too? i have a texthooker called>ITHVNRwill that do?
>>21514915>Living in Japan is expensive as fuck.Not really. Cost of living for a single working person is around 1000 bucks per month.>btw read schopenhauer or ecclesiastesI was doing an epic innuendo. Studying abroad. like "studying a broad" as in looking at chicks. But I'm also gonna actually study there.I'm big brain in English but a brainlet in other languages.
>>21514930He said he wanted to study abroad. Any place near a university is almost certainly not very cheap. I doubt he's gonna wanna go live with an おじいちゃん and an おばあちゃん out in the 田舎.
>ugh i wanna experience japanese culture!>move to some modern expensive megacity that's similar to other megacities
>>21514957japan has a thing called trains that are pretty convenient so u have even greater flexibility in finding somewhere to live that is within ur means than u might back home
>>21514949I understood that, you dumbfuck. That's why I told you to read those two writers to get the idea that having sex &/or children is somehow supposed to be good & fun.
>>21514977>supposed to be good & fun.supposed to NOT be necessarily good and fun in the long runWhat a careless mistake on my part.
i mean ill be real with u the only reason to have kids is so u can have them be morally obligated to take care of ur aging dying ass later in lifeits really just a investment in ur retirement
>>21514895This is why anime beats manga any day of the week
>>21514948>textractordude just use https://video.fluentcards.com/ or daiweeb with yomichan
>>21514986dubious you'll get your wish considering you're the one who raised them. probably a bunch of spoiled little shits
>>21514957>田舎If I go to the countryside, I'm pretty sure I'll be killed.Living with an ojiichan and an obaachan (even though I'm pretty sure it should be おじいさん and おばあさん) doesn't sound so bad if Japanese grandparents are like American grandparents. >>21514977Isn't Ecclesiastes a book in the bible? Why should I reread the bible? Sunday school was enough.>having sex &/or childrenWhat about having sex WITH children? Would I need to read Nabokov instead?>>21515019That's why corporal punishment is necessary.
anyone wanna talk about learning japanese?
>>21515024I like learning japanese not talking about learning japanese you feel
>>21515019? basically what this guy said >>21515022the truth is its really painful cuz u wanna be the doting dad that makes everything happy all the time but u have to equip ur boys and girls with what they need to survive in the world without uso that means striking the fear of god into them when they start getting out of line
memorizing kanji and their meanings from japanese song lyrics > accidentally learning Kobun through classical Japanese literature > annie may > mango
>>21515040shitty people make shitty parents make shitty kids is my point and you a shit
>>21515055how am i shitty other than my posts
>>21515060i know these things my man trust me
>>21515064oh talking from personal experience as that shitty kid made by a shitty parent i take itsorry for ya dude but u aint gotta try to perpetuate the cycle of abuse uve had ingrained into ur body here this is a safe placeur safe now *glomps u*
how can I say buried UNDER the avalanche or anything else?ナダレ「下」に埋められた？
When are so supposed to use 御 over あなた?Is it "御はファゲットです" or "あなたはファゲットです"?
>>21515022>Isn't Ecclesiastes a book in the bible? Why should I reread the bible? Sunday school was enough.>>having sex &/or children>What about having sex WITH children? Would I need to read Nabokov instead?Ecclesiastes is the most blackpilled book ever. It's all about renouncing the evils of real life for the sake of wanting to become close to the pure ideal perfect that God is supposed to be. If that doesn't sound pessimistic and anti-social as fuck to you, I think you're probably not very good at handling symbols or simple metaphors.I mentioned two things:1. Having sex for recreation2. Having sex for the purpose of procreationNeither of those things implies paedophilia.
>>21514948>aren't those used for games?textractor is used for VNs and it's an improvement over ITHVNR in that regard. though idk if it works with video players like that guy is implying.
>>21515022>If I go to the countryside, I'm pretty sure I'll be killed.what?
Word of the day: 催眠洗脳
>>21515089>Neither of those things implies paedophilia.First of all, shut the fuck up, you bong.Second of all, I know. You mentioned the words children and sex in the same sentence so I did the obligatory pedo joke.>2. Having sex for the purpose of procreationDegenerate.>If that doesn't sound pessimistic and anti-social as fuck to you, I think you're probably not very good at handling symbols or simple metaphors.Why should I care how pessimistic a book is I'm not a doomer emo retard.>>21515101hyperbole. I've heard that downhome country fags in Japan are more xenophobic than the cityfolk.
im legit disappointed that you fucks are still replying to this inbred crossboarding fuck

Hey DJT how hard/easy is this game vocab? Waiting for the crack, can't wait to mine it.
>>21515123go to youtube, search the game and judge it yourself you babby
>>21515123itll just be another game u spend a lot of time thinknig about playing and then spend 5 mins on give up and move to hyping urself up for the next thing ur gonna quit after 5 mins
>>21515135true, but at least I don't pay for games
>>21515140well if u dont play them u shouldnt it would be a waste of money
I've watched the entire first season of Attack on Titan and mined like 15 words in totalhow am I supposed to keep up 20 a day literally impossible
>>21515151u need to move on to real literaturelike eroge
>>21515151read vns instead of watching shit for children
>>21515151read actual books
>>21515151Have you tried reading a book instead? I know probably not, since you're not really into that, but you could spend at least one day doing that.
>>21515179japanese isn't about fun it's about autistic grinding it's why matt annihilated you on that quiz. now go mine emperor names or w/e it is that he did
>>21515151just have fun bro
>>21515179says the guy who literally blog posted that he *just* watched snk LOL
>>21515151isn't that a good thing?>i understand too much of this fucking shit, why cant there be more gaps in my knowledge that i can fill with boring ass flashcard droning
>>21515186no he flashcarded sengoku warlords like odo nobonaga and maury motonari and toyotatomi higeboshi
Now check this out excluding my posts the last 10 posts are all replies to meI think I get to claim the crown for most effective (you) harvester
yah dude u get yous like bukkake porno girls get cum lol
>>21515199>>21515186he memorized every emperor name and the years they rules, he heard about the emperor quiz and was excited cause he knew he'd beat it then he realized it also had shoguns and went "wait, that's not an emperor name, you can't guess those"

ive been posting a few days and holy shit this tripfag autism is grating its fuckinglanguage learning how do y
>>21515216imagine just never playing any iteration of nobuniggas ambition lol
>>21515151Even 50 words a day is easy when you're not bad with the language anymore and you're motivated.
>>21515229because you cant learn a language from a fucking 4chan thread anyways
>>21515235beat quizmaster in the quiz right now or stfu you lying shitter
th06 or 07 ost fo today
>>21515248well obviously. but youd expect it to be more about sharing advice and critique than this
>>21515255??? you come from reddit or something? this is exactly what you'd expect from a thread on 4chan
>>21515235what do you mean not bad with the language I just said I can't find shit to mine in the anime I watch
>>21515229>>21515255it's either tripfag autism or people arguing about rtk and how many words you should do in anki before you start reading, either way is horrible
>>21515257I come from less terrible boards, maybe. im never here except for this thread
>>21515092I tried doing it, and it seems like it doesn't work.
>>21515249why when u can just laugh at him and keep inflating his ego like a balloon until the fated popping dayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AmBnawtLaA#t=308

How do you learn to read japanese names?
>>21515291just shove her face in a bowl of mapo dofu
Hey guys im reading Tae Kim and did this exercise : これは水。これ も そう. What is this supposed to mean? Because im reading as "This is water. This is also that way" which doesnt make any sense to me, and it wouldnt either if there was a は instead.
>>21515317you anki it
>>21515291Just download japanese webdings, copy and paste that into wordpad or some shit, then change the font bro. EZ.
>>21515325He likes to throw in sentences that have japanese's rules about context without actually giving the context. i think its correct even though you dont know what も is in response to
>>21515325Don’t thinkーfeel. Try not to make 1:1 translations with English meanings, but try to just understand the general gist of the sentence.
Why are we even learning japanese in the first place?

>>21515352woah woah woah woahknk is a trash anime but girl shiki is still ftw
>>21515352I've already anime mined all of jojo
>>21515364I should rly read it/watch it but I wanna do tsukihime first but thats prob punching above my weight class rnGirl shiki is a miracle of the universe tho
>>21515349Porn and vidya. Personally, I love everything that comes with learning a language, but the difficulty/effort sometimes stump me, so I need a good enough motivation to drive me to learn japanese/french/italian/whatever, in this case, Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 and the thousands of untranslated doujins are my motivation to keep moving forward.
>>21515349To read eroge and LNs without having to depend on shitty translations that take years to get done.
>>21515291Isn't that mayan?
I dropped Shiki 10 minutes into the first episode but it's been so long that I can't remember why I did that. Is it actually good?
if u mean the anime called shiki u prolly dropped it cuz its a fuckin dumpster trash anime
god chinese would be so much easier!
I think he means sorry no kyoukai but I haven't watched it yet so idk
it's sora lol how did I type that
been learning for 10 months. should i be waning off tae kim by now?
>>21515405>>21515413It's actually kara no kyoukai lel. But I meant shiki the anime cause the only google results I got when I searched for "girl shiki" is that anime
oh it's fucking kara the japs and their crazy symbols you never know what they mean
jamal what anime do you fucking like ive only ever seen you shit on stuff 24/7
>randomly wake up in the middle of the night remembering the ending montage of Tokyo Magnitude 8.0just wtf
>>21515429i mean i was just saying girl shiki was ftw ? whats ur issue
it takes me literally 10 minutes to finish my new cards for the day and i still hate it so much that i procrastinate it for hours

Quizmaster has shit taste in anime.
>>21515491he retired last thread i think. i'll miss that lil guy since we can no longer verify which lowercaser is him.
>>21515504Never write in Japanese again hahahano I don't mean thatat least hold off for like another 2 years of intensive anime watching
>>21515506what a shocker
qm is right about one thinganime is the most efficient way to get good at japanese
>>21515507That implies that he's actually jamal.He's way more cancerous than the original
im a product of my environment
I don't know shingeki no kyojin is pretty OKI know it's popular with all the teenage girls but I don't let that kind of thing influence meanyway it's not even near my liked anime list which is spearheaded by 銀河英雄伝説the best anime that will ever have been made
>>21515413I remember I read the LNs in English a few years ago, and I know that they seemed quite good in comparison to the shitty anime adaptation by ufotable.
how would I make anki cards as papa steve kaufman tells me too, how do I know if I should pass or fail them?
>>21515525just look at them and press the correct button
>>21515522heres the most important question to determine exactly how shit u rfederation or zeon

is that some kind of gunman thingbecause I've never watched that shit in my life lolsomebody explain this to me by the way
>>21515525papa steve is history dudehe got owned by a random yt comment and mattvsjapan in their japanese faceoff where steve was absolutely demolished by matts amazing nihongo prowess https://streamable.com/evvoc
>>21515548why dont u read about it u know japanese lol
>>21515558read about what
also if u dont like gunman ur never gonna make it in japanese
>>21515561well u see u click the images and go to the wbesite and read abotu the thing
to be honest I just really dislike the mecha genrenothing in particular against sci fiI love 銀河英雄伝説but gigantic robots fighting it out is just silly loland I never liked the kind of plot devices those shows use
>>21515567yes it's the remake of the show I know thatwhat I wanted to say is that the remake is complete trash and doesn't deserve to be anywhere near the real anime adaptation yet when you search the title the first image are all of that abomination of a remake
>>21515544That would explain why QM likes gay shit like LoGH too.
>>21515575now were talkinu said it buddy welcome to the boomer club

word of the day: 十字架

>>21515506nah he praises lotgh as the greatest show he's seen so in that regard he's pretty alright
yah but as weve seen quiztard cant just keep watching good animeits part of his gap moe
>>21515450I only add like 20 Japanese cards a week for this reason. Half of which are anime cards, 1 card per 2 episodes average. I actually somethimes feel that Anki will actually make your Japanese worse. Coming across a word outside Anki is way better then repping a card. If I wouldn't have a card for a word and I would encounter it two times it would be enough to remember the reading and kanji, however at first this is either feels like its not possible since you actually use Anki. Now with Anime cards Anki can actually be fun and its pretty great since you have audio of the word, audio of the sentence with the word and the context. But I mean if your learning for 2+ years just blast through anki and even if you don't know the meaning and reading just press easy.
guys i am idiot gaijin how do say im a faggot gaijin in japanese please i not know how say
>tfw finally went through all the cards I mined from the first anime I watched without English subsWew. Time to mine the entire manga since it wasn’t fully adapted and even skipped some earlier content.

>>21515632I thought the same thing honestly but it was one of those moments where I thought I'm glad to be here after all
>>21515553this.the look on steve's face when matt spoke japanese....lol WOW. surprised steve still uploads videos after getting so BTFO!
>>21515604>1 card per 2 episodes averagedo you sit there laughing to yourself, sometimes so hard that you cry, because the clips you've mined are so epic win funny? :D

>>21515667we havent even begun to start this fanficits basically like the start of persona 5 so yoga shows up lookin like he hella ate some ass and then it cuts into like a 50 hour flashback of yogas talking dirty to matt while he sloppily slurps his ass lol
>>21515635I can’t even make out the lyrics to songs in English half the time and I’m a native speaker.

>>21515805oh yeah mostly I can sometimes it's a pain in the ass though because they use old kanji forms, katakana for everything, write it backwards and often I just feel like lol who cares I'll just watch the show

>>21515877don't we all
>>21515875you tell em bro corporations are based
>>21515877No. I don't even watch anime.
>>21515875Come up with a better system then lmao. As it stands this is the best we've got and it's responsible for the highest degree of advancement in human history.
>>21515885Socialism but not performed by psychopaths (like Lenin or Stalin)
>>21515875back to chapo retard
>>21515895I unironically reported you.
>>21515889Socialism doesn't work because using violence is a necessity in order to take people's shit for redistribution. There's a reason trash ends up running the show, normal people won't do what it takes to enforce the system.
capitalism is amazing just look at all the fat diseased cows unfit to live otherwise spending 16 hours a day on computers
>>21515902thats why you have to educate people about why capitalism is bad (dont pretend like its good)if enough people will think about it maybe there won't be much violencealso i doubt there will be a lot of people against taking resources from the ultra rich who collect yachts and eat bears with golden sauce
>>21514580>nobody gives a fuck about you being able to string a few sentences togetherlol what the fuck are you talking about you antisocial hikikomorijapanese people love talking to foreigners who are well behaved AND can actually hold a conversation (unless you’re in tokyo maybe)
>>21515883>No. I don't even watch anime.Then why are you still alive?The only reason to live is for moefaggotry. Not politics, not great aspirations, nothing else.Just watching anime and receiving moe.
>>21515916It doesn't matter if it's "good" (whatever the fuck that even means), it's the best we've got and it's probably the best we'll ever have until we ascend into being sentient gas clouds or whatever the fuck in a thousand years. Capitalism = the richest, most developed countries in the history of the world, Socialism = hundreds of millions dead and starving. > i doubt there will be a lot of people against taking resources from the ultra rich who collect yachts and eat bears with golden sauceThat's called stealing and a lot of people would be against it in fact.

whats the points in learning languages if i have avoidant personality disorder which basically means that I avoid any non-anonymous showing off or literally any conversations with people
but what if u did rtk with japanese keywords
>>21515940consuming media also one day you'll grow out of your made up "disorder" anyway
From my point of view DJT is evil
>>21515935>that's called stealingWhen amazon worker works 12 hours per day and dies and he has no mechanism to recover from this nightmare of a life when his boss gets all the value - isn't that stealing? Also isn't that stealing when 0.01% of the world population owns 90% of resources? I bet totally fair market mechanisms did this!
>>21515940>whats the points in learning languages if i have avoidant personality disorder which basically means that I avoid any non-anonymous showing off or literally any conversations with peopleconsuming escapist material
>>21515945>grow outwhat the fuck did you mean by this
>>21515949what belongs to who is ultimately subjective my dude, so the answer is that even if it's technically stealing under some random person's definition, who cares? all you can compare it against is your imaginary utopia.
>>21515949read manga or hang yourself if you hate real life so much
>>21515949It would be stealing if it were forced labor. He entered into a voluntary agreement with his employer which he can quit at any time. It's called a job and it's not his employers problem if that's the only one he's competent enough to get. I'm done with this, all you've got are the typical high school talking points and this isn't a politics thread.
>>21515958i bet you can watch cartoons all day until the rest of your life because fuck politics and activism right? it won't touch your life anyway
In what order are you to learn radicals in?
>>21515968Even if it affect my life, I wouldn't do anything about it. Get a trip so I can filter you or fuck off
>>21515968if i became an activist it would be for regulated capitalism and against hypothetical communist fairy tale land predicated on blank slatism.
>>21514915>Living in Japan is expensive as fuck. Besides, Japanese people don't really like gaijin that much. They can probably tolerate your presence for a few weeks as a tourist, but probably not for months. If you browse 4chan, you're more likely than not a serious introverted autist. I doubt such a person would thrive any better in Japan than in your home country.this comment is nearly entirely wrong, wow. where the fuck do you get your information from?living in japan is extremely cheap compared to places like U.K., Canada and US, as long as you don’t swarm to Tokyo like most gaijin. If you’re not a shitty and severely emotionally fucked up person who lacks self awareness and emotional intelligence (this excludes most of DJT and 4chan in general, I agree, but not all gaijin) then of course you can have plenty of positive interactions in Japan, especially if you know enough japanese to have actually pleasant and meaningful conversations. People will give you free shit like vegetables from their garden, and let you come over their house to cook you dinner and meet their shibainuyou guys need to stop projecting your lack of social skills and overall cringyness on every foreigner who goes to japan. that being said, the guy who asked seems he might be an annoying gaijin so idk about him.

>>21515982you seriously gonna act like the majority of people that move there aren't delusional weebs obsessed with "japanese culture"? just go to the jet subreddit to see how fucking retarded the average person that goes there is lol. your other points are valid though.
if you live in a world where the people stealing win at life and live completely carefree in luxus yachtswhy don't you become a thief yourself instead of crying about it and trying to appeal to some imaginary concept of fairness that only exists in your headthe reality is that you know you can't stand up to those people because you are small fry low IQ piece of lazy shitand calling for equality is just your way of trying to get at people more accomplished than youlet me ask do you think more than 0.01% of all people have significantly contributed to the advancement of the human race, technologically or philosophically? of course not yet we are all living with so many luxuries that would have been unimaginable not so long ago thanks to those few handful of peoplemost people live in obscurity and die in obscurity never having achieved anything and being concerned with their small worlds that absolutely does not matter a whole life longhow pathetic you are if you can't accept that reality

can't we just all agree that hiragana SUCKS.We should go back to pre ww2 nipese, traditional kanji with katakana makes texts look like the kanbun of the future
>>21516013it's called bragging my dude
uh am i supposed to own a copy of yotsubato with the reading pack>>21516021what will wahmen use?
>>21515991lmfao nice meltdown
god i literally feel like a child sounding out hiragana in my head.
>>21515991tomorrow i will steal everything you have and you'll going to cry for help because waaa its unfair save me please my money was lost!!because nobody ever just says "yeah, that's fair. someone robbed me, i'm totally okay with it, should have acted smarter!" people who treat themselves like people do something that will ensure their happiness and their lives without harming others.now fuck off
what a bunch of losers, noone here will get gud, so much wasted time, but at least we arent wasting our potential since we have none
actually when u do get robbed thats pretty much what u say cuz there aint shit no ones gonna do about itgotta be responsible for urself dude aint no one give a fuck about u

I bet you guys support police having free use of weapon
>>21515989>you seriously gonna act like the majority of people that move there aren't delusional weebsstop projecting. for one thing a person isn’t automatically a delusional weeb for liking japanese shit. they have good shit. i know plenty of people with prospering social lives, sex lives, nice fashion sense and a firm grasp on reality who also happen to like anime, manga etc. and those are the kinds of people who get treated well there. also sampling bias, people who are actually living satisfying and productive lives in japan do not post on the jet sub or any other “living in japan”-esque subs unless it’s for very specific help with certain documents or something. so the ones having a shitty time/being dumb are all you see.
am i supposed to read before or after i do the yotsuba vocab on anki

ok let me phrase it another way do you think every human life is worth the same
laziness literally does not existit's all regulated by dopamine/serotonin/cortisol/other hormones levels in your brainif you think ur performing good it has nothing to do with your "value" or "hard work"its your brain that works that wayand no its not determinism, you can help yourself with that, but 99.7% arent aware of this stuff and they just live praising themselves for performing good or blaming themselves performing bad without thinking why that happens

Posting my anki statistics before deleting it.It's been such a wild year and a half.
I'll post my year as well, check it out.
how do you say "im gay" in japanese?
>>21516294idk why do you think you're better than me despite not being better at anything just cuz i hate browns and love little 2d girls

>>21516136>and no its not determinism, you can help yourself with thatyour desire to "help yourself" is itself part of the deterministic process. you are a cart on a railroad track heading into a volcano and the best you can hope for is for some other object to knock you off that track, but none of it will really be your choice.
so what exactly is the difference between rtk and lazy kanji other than one takes far longer teaching you how to write and one doesn't bother teaching you how to write? because from my point of view learning how to write kanji is a fairly useless skill?
>>21516351correct and RTK doesn't actually teach you how to write because you won't necessarily remember which kanji go with which words, particularly in words that use 2 or more kanji. so just do lazy kanji, and then if you want to learn to write years from now when you're fluent it'll be pretty easy.
>>21516351u tend to remember them better if you learn to write them but other than that no. u can just brute force the kanji into ur brain through months of reviews without writing a thing. so no there's no point in doing rtk over lazy kanji unless u want to learn to write
>>21516351Both don't teach writing. People who do RTK and then learn to read Japanese can't write Japanese.
>>21516363u also remember them better if u come up with ur own story but u dont need to know how to write for that
u can also do neither and just learn words lol
>>21516351when you do rtk the kanji become part of you and you'll never forget them
what the fuck is 店? The furigana says it's みせ but yandex says it is たな. Is there a difference? I know みせ is shop and Yandex says たな is also shop.
>>21516371yeah I've tried that for a month now but I'm starting to have issues telling kanji apart from one another. just gonna do lazy kanji for a bit and see how it goes
>>21516378I prescribe you with a daily dose of 「レード モア」
>>21516383itll solve itself but u do u
>>21516378go on jisho and assume the first result is the best one
reminder that quizmaster did core before starting to watch anime, despite him telling people to start learning just watching anime and hovering over words he himself didn't do that at the start and he is doing the exact same thing matt did when he recommended everyone do rtk for the first 3 months before learning japanese despite not doing that himself. except qm will probably say it's your fault and you're retarded if what he says doesn't work out for you instead of owning up to it like matt
>>21516394>instead of owning up to it like mattthis is why matt's a great guy. he admits his mistakes and learns from them
>>21516400>my same professionlmao kids these days
>>21516389i counter prescribe you with a high dosage of 「あたしを吸う」, アンタバカ。
>>21516394did he only do core2k or did he do 6k and 10k too
>>21516400why is this so fucking funny
>>21516394>quizmaster did coreHas he posted about it before?
if not even the guys who get good at japanese can agree on what newbies should do, and even tell newbies to do stuff that they themselves didn't do, then why is it bad if i as a newbie theorize about what's best and tell other newbies to do that
>>21516394I did core but I don't think it was the best most efficient way of going about things, however you are wrong when you say I only started to watch anime after doing core, very wrong. I've been consuming all throughout my Japanese learning and recommend the same thing to everyone.Started anime mining right after finishing core. Right now I recommend pirating those Tango decks and then doing anime cards after you are done with them.
>>21516425i assume there exist individuals who are actually subject matter experts on language learning. mutt and the rest of the eceleb posse are just random shitheads with no such expertise.
>tfw already read every chapter of yotsubato up to 100 in English so reading it in Japanese is way easier.What's the fucking point desu
>>21516432fuckin hell why would you ever read that boring piece of shit for any purpose other than to learn nihongo
>>21516430did you do the tango decks? either way the main point was that you're recommending people do stuff you didn't do yourself so that's still valid
>>21516435underageb& pls go
>>21516439I didn't do the Tango decks but they serve the same function as core introducing you to basic vocab quickly so it's not a big difference to core except that the word selection and ordering is better and it's shorter so you can anime mine earlier. You are kind of assuming that people who learn a good amount of Japanese don't actually have any insight on how to go about acquiring it which isn't entirely correct. I'm not saying anything extreme like "read my dumb articles 3 times a day, buy a book on meditation, and spend 3 months learning English keywords before learning a word of Japanese".No, my advice is grounded in reality. Start consuming from the start while learning basic vocab and some grammar, then switch to input based flashcard making and keep consuming and having fun. Big difference.
>>21516435The fuck you mean? Yotsubato is fucking comfy af and also fuuka is best girl fuck asagi fuck ena fuck miura fuck mrs. ayase FUCK YOU AZUMA GIVE ME A YOTSUBATO ANIME
>>21516435>reading something you dont like to try to "learn" nihongowhen will they learn
>>21516461the range of things you can chose for your first read without wanting to kys is very narrow. presumably you're going to be reading stuff for years and years to come so a few volumes of something you don't like to get your feet wet isn't a big sacrifice.
i just want a 600 字/分 reading speed already :(
>>21516454Best girl is Yotsubas aunt.
are men who stimulate their prostate to get off gay even if they have sex with women
>>21516476>i just want a 600 字/分 reading speed already :(why?>so a few volumes of something you don't like to get your feet wet isn't a big sacrifice.but you're creating negative associations with japanese... and that's gonna hurt long term
>>21516490dont think so cause being gay entails sexual acts with another man ps watashi wa gay
negative associations can be difficult to break. if you start associating reading things in japanese with "boring chore and obligation" it's gonna fuck you up later on.best to pick something you like but only do small chunks a day. like two pages a day until you've gained the momentum to do more.
>>21516475havin no interest always felt worse than bein in over my head personallyi never quit nihongoin from somethin that was hard but i did from somethin that was boringbut i liked yotubato so i cant say how it would have been if i didnt do that first
>>21516490sounds like you have never been pegged by a woman before
>>21516505dont rub it in
>>21516501>i never quit nihongoin from somethin that was hard but i did from somethin that was boringyep samei was trying to read articles from one of my favorite magazines in japanese after 1 year of pretty inefficient learning and yeah i was overwhelmed as fuck but i learned so much from it, picking away at it for hours a day sometimes and getting hundreds of new wordsif i was forcing myself to read news or some shit instead i would have tapped out after 5 minutes
>>21516494>>21516499dont think its likely you'll create lasting negative association from spending a few weeks doing something you're not ecstatic about. >>21516501it's also conceivable then that trying to read something you're into but are struggling with a lot would lead to negative association both for the material and the language as a whole.I don't think either will happen unless you have the most frail discipline and character ever
>>21516505>sounds like you have never been pegged by a woman beforeyou have?
>>21516490No, but just know that if you do like it you might consider how good it'd feel if someone was doing it for you while kissing you deeply.
>>21516494What are you trying to say?
Working on a census for these threads. Is there anything I'm missing that should be included?
>>21516543come back in 18 months

>>21516539Japanesepod101, n5 sample test
>>21516432yeah but their voices sound a lot better in japanese so it's worth reading
>>21516547hey man the pun really only works in Japanese, give me a break.But get it? Koiwai and Kowaii?
>>21516557>le manga isn't listening meme
>>21516553Japanesepod would go under podcasts for learners just because there really isn't much of a difference between it and others other than popularity.Adding sample tests is a really good idea: thank you.>>21516559That would go under Own Deck (Audiovisual.) Maybe this format is unclear?
>>21516566How do you define AJATT in this?
>>21516566u forgot rattata
>>21516539Music "enka is where it's at"Add a option for completion or not (rtk, textbooks, ect)A non tutor native/native like person just tell you shitRadioTv (Drama, reality shows, ect)
>learning japanese>not just letting a babel fish crawl into your earfampai, thats kinda cringe desu
>>21516568Good question. I haven't really delved into it beyond the main articles myself so I really don't know—I just know that some people swear by it. Maybe I'll change that option to immersion techniques in general.
>>21516574>what is: a typoI meant Kowai
>>21516575>>21516539Also add a option if a person does passive immersion or not
>>21516575This is a good idea for another question. Thanks.
>>21516513>dont think its likely you'll create lasting negative association from spending a few weeks doing something you're not ecstatic about.then you underestimate how quickly the subconscious mind learns, especially when emotions like boredom and dislike are involved.>it's also conceivable then that trying to read something you're into but are struggling with a lot would lead to negative association both for the material and the language as a wholenot if your brain already knows that challenging =/= bad and that interesting/fun things can also be challenging.thats completely different than forcing yourself to do something you do not find interesting and have no 好奇心 about whatsoever
I kinda like when they put the captions for very obvious lines, like "pay extra attention to this one" kind of thing.
>>21516585passive immersion is more or less a memevague awareness of japanese noise in the background will only help familiarity a smidge for absolute beginners, after that it's worthless and silence, or music you like, or nature sounds or literally anything else you'd prefer is better to have in the background when you're not available to focus on the japanese.
>>21516598>less japanese is better!nice meme
>>21516598It's not about effectiveness (yet.) It's about what people are using.
>>21516587Online videos (youtube)social media and or forums Listening to Japanese tourists talking to each other video games
>>21516589>then you underestimate how quickly the subconscious mind learns, especially when emotions like boredom and dislike are involved.i can't describe such a person as anything other than weak minded then. also worth noting that there is a big difference between challenging and frustrating and the latter is what you're going to be experiencing when reading above your level at the very start. when you aren't as shit then it goes from frustrating to challenging in my experience. basically i'm on the complete opposite side of the coin to you.
>>21516602more like *japanese you're not actually paying any attention to is not going to help you get any better.which should be obvious...
Theoretically couldn't a game similar to the Gojuon game on the guide website be made using not kana, but kanji instead? You can use JLPT N5-1 and seperate each one into groups to be enabled like how you can turn on different sets of sounds. You can type what they translate to or how they're read in romaji like the Gojuon game.Being able to read kanji is more important than being able to write them.
>>21516593omg thats the kanji for 1 and the kanji from 出撃 LETs GOOOoOOOO
so you guys weren't joking. How the fuck am I supposed to learn katakana? I have some manga arrive tomorrow and I need to get fluent in katakana until then. I have about one hour until bed time, what do?
>>21516614>blah blah i choose to waste my life tolerating boring shit so i'm better than youfinished flailing your dumb sense of superiority yet?
>>21516624jack off in ur own mouth and swallow it all and ull be able to read katakana tomorrow
>>21516618What about the 2% of the time you are paying attention to it?
>>21516619so anki but with text input? whats the point? there's an extension for anki that lets you do this i think
>>21516598What if you sometimes do passive immersion by accident?
>>21516624just look them up when you come across them
>>21516633Whats the point of the Gojuon game then?
>>21516629i can't be finished because i never started, retard. i was just having a conversation, don't know what you're doing other than not reading what I said.
>>21516624If we never changed the beauty that was pre ww2 Japanese this would have never been a problem
>>21516618not listening to japanese is useless........ also you can pay attention any time....................
>>21516637Idk I never used it.
Here's a revised version. How is this?

>>21516624just watch this like 10 times dudehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzNWu89pn_I
guys, harukami wrote a novel about us
>>21516632not worth it for hours of distracting noise that 2% gain could be replaced by just 2 more minutes of active listening.
>>21516635Well it's One Punch Man so I excpect 90% of text to be in katakana. Honestly, what is the story behind those symbols. It looks like someone did a study on how to use symbols that have the least logical connection and resemblance to the sounds as possible. This is sadism in its purest form.
>>21516644looks fine, post it
