Why learn so many kanji when not even Japanese know that much anyway? Learning the very basics is more than enough (1k - 2k). Who the hell even remembers over 40k kanji

Brandon Powell
Brandon Powell

Friendly Reminder

How to tell if something is a shitpost:
calls the community made guide/whatever method a piece of shit with no reasoning given why
insults someone giving helpful advice with no reasoning given why
attempts to create arguments over virtually nothing (eg opinions without facts)
"spam questions" that are easily answered via a 1 second glance at the guide
uses obtuse Japanese fragments interspersed with English to attempt bypass people trying to filter the shitposts
any mention of anime being shit, or claiming that X isn't "real Japanese"
spells the word as romaji

So I used to hook VNs with TransAggregator and ITH but I recently made a fresh install of Windows 7 and I want to transition to chiitrans. Thing is, I can't dl Atlas anymore on the fujitsu site. If I download chiitrans, will it be included in the download? If not, is there a torrent or a mega link where I can download atlas?

Nathaniel Robinson

The only thing you can do to fight laziness is form habits and just make the rational decision to do the goddamn work! Worst case scenario, you barely do any new anki cards and have to wait years before you're good. If you learn 5 kanji-vocabulary a day, you'll know 3,000 kanji in less than 2 years, and would have barely spent time studying. Obviously this is suboptimal but you can be a lazy shit and still do it.

Another thing would be to force yourself to read manga in Japanese. That's what I'm trying to do and it's ridiculously helpful. Reading practice is the most important thing to do while learning Japanese. If you do nothing but anki for 100 years you will never learn Japanese. Try reading a single chapter or something a day and build up as time goes on.

Do *not* rely on motivation. Just make a schedule and stick with it. If you can't do that, sorry, but you really can't learn Japanese.

Learning Japanese feels good. It makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something every day. Before I was goal- and dreamless, and was basically just consuming media every day for escapism, but now I have a purpose.

My dream is to become an eroge translator in the future.

Aiden Garcia

Long enough ago that I should already know enough to do what I wanted to do with it when I set out but I've failed. On the positive side I've started up again and I'm having an easier time understanding the stuff I'm reading than In the past. So while it's still hard it's not as hard as it was. I can still learn it but is depressing thinking about all my previous failures.

Ryan Scott

Started mid-April last year. I can read a lot of Tweets, nhk easy news articles, things like Yotsuba, and I can carry on a conversation well enough. My listening is shit though. I'm not a neet unfortunately so I don't always have as much time as I want to study

I started learning Japanese because I wanted to read read untranslated doujins and watch unsubbed anime, but I don't even watch anime anymore. I just like the language. Reading and doing anki a little every day, even when I feel too tired or busy, has gotten me into good habits that go beyond studying Japanese.

What's the difference between 帰り and 帰る ?
You can't use 帰り alone in a sentence ?
Like 帰る means going home and you don't specify anything ( where/when ), meanwhile with 帰り you have to specify where/when ( after school, at 6 pm ).

More generally, how does a verbal noun work ?

Sebastian Collins
Sebastian Collins

Like 4 years probably, although my level of seriousness fluctuated a lot early on

Idk about milestones, everything's so slow that I never really realise when I improve in any significant way, I guess I can read pretty much any SoL with very little difficulty, just having to look up a word or two every now and then, I can watch SoL with japanese subtitles fine but without subtitles I miss some of the faster spoken shit, my listening comprehension is miles behind my reading

Bentley Phillips
Bentley Phillips

It works by READING MORE

John Gomez
John Gomez

The masu stem of a verb just turns that verb into a noun meaning the same shit, so you can use it as you would any noun

So you can use 帰り to talk about the act of returning for example, instead of talking about actually DOING the act

Tyler Fisher
Tyler Fisher

One is a verb, the other is a noun.

Speaking of which, what is everyone working on reading currently?

Are you enjoying it? Learning a lot? Would you recommend it, and if so, to what skill level?

I'm aware we have a list for this, but active discussion isn't a bad thing, either.

The more you learn japanese the less you will want to do this shit, except if you crave for the attention.

Started in 2011, passed N2 in 2014, failed N1 in 2015 by 10 points.
Since I finished post-grad and started working I do not have time to study properly so my overall proficiency is not increasing much, apart from my reading speed.

Evan Wright

I'm the first guy and I wasn't talking for free. As in, professional translator. Though I could see myself doing a fantl of something 2 hours long or so if it was something I wanted people to experience.

Nathaniel Edwards

professional eroge translator
There's no such thing, m8. The only company I'm aware of that ever dabbled in eroge translations dropped out of the "business" in 2008 (probably because it was unprofitable as fuck).

Angel Brooks

Sounds more like you're just an arsehole and are projecting this trait onto others. Some people get a kick out of doing things others appreciate.

Jonathan Johnson

Reading 学戦都市アスタリスク vol 5. and playing Chaos;Head on the Vita (finished Steins;Gate 0 last December so I went and bought that)

Asterisk is easy for a light novel, so if you like the anime I recommend it.

Alright, the translation business does not seem to pay well so I wish you good luck.

Just my opinion but when you can actually enjoy things in Japanese it feels like a better use of time to continue doing that instead of translating stuff for a not so good community

Landon Morales
Landon Morales

Started kyonyuu fantasy after the discussion in /jp/
It's not boring me but the sex scene density is a bit too high. I'll probably just read the first one and then go back to focusing on anime. I downloaded the second lupin series to watch through (in addition of course to following ~5 shows this season)

William Barnes

MG, JAST. Though I'm guessing 5~ years down the line there will be more companies / the Japanese trying to localize stuff themselves without a 3rd party.

James Rogers

Reading Tonakoi. I'm not far enough in to recommend it, but it feels harder than Satsukoi. I've been on the same scene for 3 days. I recently doubled my daily Anki time and it is really burning me out. I need to cut back again.

Luke Bell
Luke Bell

MG doesn't even show up on VNDB, and JAST have hardly released anything in English. I know that the Steins;Gate translation that is attributed to them was actually a fan translation that JAST bought when it was very near completion.

It's pretty stupid to bet on getting a job in such a tiny industry, especially when you have no formal qualifications related to that field and no translating experience.

Dylan Morales
Dylan Morales

I'm not sure where you're getting 'betting' from, I just said it's a dream...

And you don't know what the future brings. I'm fairly optimistic, especially with Frontwing now setting a precedent.

Joshua Martin
Joshua Martin

Just my opinion but when you can actually enjoy things in Japanese it feels like a better use of time to continue doing that instead of translating stuff for a not so good community

I've been enjoying things in Japanese for a long time and continue to do so all the time, I also enjoy providing fap material for other people to enjoy and seeing their happy comments of gratitude, if I spent years learning a skill why would I not want to use it for the good of a community that I feel close to and want to give back to

Asher Moore

No, guides are for fags and losers.

Ryan White
Ryan White

This is incredibly low quality shitposting, but I'm going to respond here for other learner's reference anyways:

The PDF of the actual book. Reading the introduction, which explains how the method works, how the book is laid out and how to use it, is incredibly important.

It lays the out the foundation for learning using the RTK method, not just the 2000 something kanji found within RTK1, but also how to learn the 1000+ it is lacking when you encounter them "in the wild".

If you are planning on using RTK to learn, you'll need not only the anki deck but also the book (it introduces the radicals & the intro) and if you want, kanji.koohii community stories.

Luis Harris
Luis Harris

You should have used a deck like https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2077872612 that has the top 2 community stories from Kanji Koohii.

While I always recommend using the PDF along with the deck, it wouldn't solve this problem because he does stop having stories around 500.

There are plenty of ways to objectively measure your Japanese skills. Are you able to watch anime raw? How many word lookups do you need to read an average NHK news article? Jcat?

Elijah Cox

JLPTs are not bad. It seems some people here have knee-jerk reactions to simply hearing that word, not sure why

Obsessing over tests is bad, especially when they cost a decent chunk of money, give you no real benefit, and don't even test the most important parts of japanese ability for actual communication.

Joshua Hernandez
Joshua Hernandez

Well pointless for presenting as credentials maybe, but not for judging progress I think. If you happen to live close to a test site and want to take the N5 or N4 even just to confirm the level you you already know you are, I say go for it. It's a great confidence and motivation boost.

Henry Jackson
Henry Jackson

because they can't pirate it

Tyler Thompson

If you need to take a test for """motivation,""" you probably aren't going to make it far in Japanese.

Kevin Evans

I don't think anyone is obsessing over it though

Charles Wilson
Charles Wilson

Even if you are not applying to jobs in Japan, it is often seen as a good sign by companies.

Non-NEETs should take the JLPT N2/N1 if they can, it should improve (even marginally) their attractivity in the global job market

Fair enough, again my main criticism was his assumption that we would give a shit that he hadn't taken the JLPT. I'll probably even take the N1 before I actually apply to jobs.

Back to , tryng to apply JLPT levels to native material truly is reddit shit. Native material is by definition written for natives. The vast majority of it is going to contain some amount of N1 grammar and vocab, and a lot of slang that isn't covered in any N level.

The point was how fucking redundant a large portion of the core decks are and how much better your time would be spent if certain cards were removed or replaced.
No, I don't need to know learn what ハンバーガー or ヘビーメタル or any other loanword identical to its English counterpart, I could probably figure that out once I come across it.
No, you don't need 7 cards to tell me that slapping 真っ in front of a color means "pure"+color.
No, you don't need to waste a whole 'nother card on showing me the exact same word as the card before it, just with a に particle tacked on.

Zachary Lee

suspend the card and move on? It's exactly one keypress

Henry Davis
Henry Davis

While it's true it's easy to figure out English loanwords, producing them would be another story. Not everyone here wants to speak / type in Japanese of course, but for those who do, it's useful.

It can help to think of them as not being English words at all, since some of them do end up kind of mangled anyways.

Connor Foster

Is 人類は衰退しました good? I've been looking for more LNs to read other than キノの旅

Cooper Davis

Basically loanwords are only worthwhile as production cards.

Of course wasei-eigo and ones that don't resemble english like アルバイト are fine as recognition

Landon Moore

Any of you guys got any ideas for these kanji? I can't find them in a radical search on jisho so it makes me think they're chinese or something

How can you be aware of the existence of LNs and not know if that's good or who the author is? Of course, though if you aren't very good at Japanese don't bother, it'll go over your head.

I'd like to think I'm pretty good at this point, guess I'll test my abilities with it

Ayden Hill

Fair enough, I personally don't have any desire to take the JLPT anytime soon, I just parroted what was told to me by instructors which, in retrospect, is a terrible idea

Noah Hall

Nolan Ward

First time I've seen someone talk about HHD like some sort of flagship for LNs, is it that popular? I only ever see the anime mentioned on Sup Forums

For future reference, you can use the word "hanzi" (literally: Han characters) to distinguish the Chinese writing system from kanji.

Benjamin Garcia

This is why I still use core at all

Jeremiah Nguyen
Jeremiah Nguyen

It's the first LN people mention as an example of one with literary merit and witty writing, rather than the heaps of generic and bland shovelware that plague the medium. It's not "popular" in the same sense that Utena isn't popular with the average shounen anime watcher.
I only ever see the anime mentioned on Sup Forums
It's untranslated.

Julian Green
Julian Green

It's said that the average native adult know something in the range of 3000 to 4000 kanji

only 4000? really?

if so, that makes reaching something like 30k vocab sound significantly easier

Does the 2k6k deck contain all Joyo kanji? According to this one plugin I downloaded there are 1606 kanji in it.
I just want to be able to know when I have seen them all. Is the rest in 10k? If so, are the remaining kanji lists in there too?

Brandon Campbell

in what way are they related
They're both set at the same all-girls school.

What about Hanabira?
Hanahira has no sexual content, whereas the Hanabira games do. So basically Hanahira is just a tame yuri SoL story whereas the Hanabira games are actual yuri eroge.

Hanahira is more popular HERE because it is really easy to read due to being a very simple SoL story.

Bentley Rogers

But that brings me back to my original question; do they really differ in difficulty? Because it doesn't seem like it. Might as well rec the better game, no?

Brayden Miller

I guess the characters in Hanabira are more mature in personality and speak with more mature language. Or not, who knows. The reading list is neglected as fuck when it comes to easy VNs. Actually, it's neglected as fuck in general.

What exactly are you basing this on? Have you read either one?

The Hanabira game that you linked takes a Japanese person about 15 hours to read. Hanahira takes 2 hours. Hanahira is 99% voiced with about 1 line of narration in the entire game. Hanabira looks like a normal VN so it probably has tons of narration, which is harder to read most of the time, and isn't voiced. And I would bet money that at least one character in Hanabira talks like an ojousama while the characters in Hanahira talk like children.

Ethan Jenkins

Inspired by this image, I started in 2012. I've given up many times since then for various reasons. The early attempts failed because I really had no idea what I was doing or what I was even supposed to be doing, while the more recent attempts failed because I tried to rush through everything and ended up overwhelmed.

I know kana, some common kanji, basic grammar and a thousand or so words, but that's as far as I've gotten because of my ignorance and/or stupidity.

I have nothing but 4 years of failure under my belt so far, but I really want to learn this language so I keep coming back to it. This time I'm trying to learn from my mistakes and takes things more slowly. Also, for the sake of variety, I'm trying new methods - instead of Tae Kim and vocab only, I'm reading Imabi and doing RTK.

all of that should come second to reading

only use tae kim to briefly look up grammar in question, don't bother trying to learn grammar through tae kim that you'll just forget. skim it once in a while maybe, but nothing more than that

and even if you memorize a bunch of words by their english keyword in anki, you still don't really understand the definition without learning through context

and RTK doesn't actually teach you any vocabulary, nor do you actually need it

you should be spending four or five times the amount of time on reading over any of this other stuff

reading is the most important thing and there's no way around it

Huh? Never had this happen to me unless I don't restart the browser for like 2 weeks and let the RAM it takes up go to like 1.5gb (but I had that issue in Chrome too). Are you using some fucky broken extension / downloading a ton of stuff from MEGA and letting the RAM usage get too high?

Not sure why it acts like this. I like to think that I treat my PC well and the only extensions my Firefox installation has are Rikaichan, uBlock Origin and Greasemonkey (+ 4chanx). I've also got a ton of RAM.

It's really strange. I'll click a link or any kind of content and it'll just load infinitely before I close a tab, upon which it'll instantly load. Happens way more often if I've got a lot of webms up. Doesn't matter how long Firefox's been running.

I won't write anymore since I don't want to start full-blown tech support, though, unless someone posts a miraculous fix of some kind.

"he can't learn japanese"

Alexander Cook
Alexander Cook

I believe everyone has a natural retention percentage. You may be able to increase it by spending more time studying. You could write the words out, look up images on Google, look at example sentences, etc. But then that is a lot of time that could be spent learning new words instead. Learning 63% of 30 words is better than 90% of 20 words.

Charles Baker
Charles Baker

What I see is people who burn out their working memory easily have extremely strong long term memories, and vice versa. I basically cannot learn information by drilling but I only have to remind myself of it like three times a month apart to know it eidetically, wheras my dad can learn new things by rote in a matter of minutes but can't remember the names of family friends that come around a lot.

Tyler Bailey
Tyler Bailey

im not doing much better lately, i have to concentrate more i guess
ive been flipping the cards faster that i dont get right instantly, before id spend at least 5-10 seconds on but thats far below a good reading pace

maybe i need to slow it down, i dont know how memory works

Benjamin Howard
Benjamin Howard

No one plans to do that many cards unless they're actually insane. Anki is just for building a foundation, after that its benefits start falling off and you might as well just be reading instead.

Also being below 95 and being below 65 are very different. Going by number of cards missed 65% is about seven times worse, which is a big deal. To put it bluntly, you're probably a fucking idiot if your retention is that low.

Austin Johnson
Austin Johnson

423 in 46 minutes?

Try 283 cards in 93 minutes. Then again, every time I saw something interesting or wanted to get a better feel for the context, I would reread the connected sentence. Or I would sometimes look up other words in the sentence that I had forgotten. Or I would write down relearn vocab I was having extra trouble with on paper to make a list of words in particular that I struggle with, etc.

Or maybe 30 cards a day is just too much for me...

The part where you mentioned you can't learn information by drilling. Retention is literally a measure of that, if it's what you want to call working memory.

Lucas Powell
Lucas Powell

well, my time is probably bloated because it's a pretty fresh mining deck going at a pace of 30 new cards a day

or maybe I am just stupid after all

Adrian Parker
Adrian Parker

Drilling is sitting down and repeating the same information in one sitting. Retention isn't a measure of that at all.

Isaiah Hernandez
Isaiah Hernandez

That's quite a while to be spending on Anki. If you feel like it helps you that's great, but you might be better off just memorizing the definitions and ignoring the rest so you can move through the cards quickly and spend that time on reading instead. It's really reading that will teach you the usages and common context of words, and it'll teach you better than the sample sentences in Core.

Xavier Russell
Xavier Russell

it's a mining deck, the sentences are captured by rikaisama from reading, which is why i kind of get caught up in rereading them sometimes

Benjamin Carter
Benjamin Carter

Never actually used the RTK book, but I drilled the basic radicals and did around 2 thousand recall/recognition pairs out of a kanji deck. I was trying 20 cards a day out of core2k/6k at the same time before, but it was taking too much time to do both so I prioritized kanji for a couple months. My retention in both of those decks was nearly a hundred though.

I stopped doing new cards out of the kanji deck recently and since then I've been sporadically adding new cards from the user core 5k frequency deck. Like 100 on some days and 30 or zero on others, amounting to 1330 in the last three weeks, so that variable is probably unreliable in my case.

Gabriel Wilson
Gabriel Wilson

Retention is by all means a measure of what you learned by drilling. If you want to talk about retention of brand new cards throughout the first sitting, Anki more or less measures that too with the blue bar.

Nathaniel Perry
Nathaniel Perry

You seem to be making a critical assumption, user. I didn't measure retention, and you can't go from drilling to retention in the first place because the only cards that are drilled are new ones and ones that have already been lapsed. Cards that are not new and have not been lapsed are merely reviewed. Retention is not a measure of how good you are at drilling, but a measure of how much you have to / don't have to drill. Besides, Anki doesn't even have a retention stat.

I'd probably share some every once in a while if it's something I had to get through slow DDL sites / waiting for seeds to show up, but if it becomes a thing it should probably be something that isn't mentioned in the OP and has the password changed semi-regularly. /jp/'s thread would probably be more interested than DJT though, esp if you upload rare stuff.

There's no meaningful distinction between reviewing in Anki and drilling here.
Retention is a measure of what you remember, specifically from that drilling, which means it is a personal measure of the effectiveness of drilling. Anki has a plugin for it that you can assume everyone has installed.

If you want to make this distinction so badly, then what exactly is it? What constitutes drilling in the context of Japanese for you, and how would you measure its effectiveness other than retention of what you drilled? If you choose to look at "working memory" instead and only check retention immediately after a session of brand new material, your post is pretty out of context here isn't it?
You said that you are bad at drilling yet remember things you only see 3 times, and that your dad is good at rote memorization but forgets inconsequential information that shows itself fairly often. There isn't necessarily any correlation between anything in this anecdote, let alone retention, which of course you didn't mention. You did say it in response to someone talking about retention, though, which at this point is making it look like you're trying to cover your tracks.

he's baiting you into deepening your misunderstanding because you didn't realize that "retention" was on the side of "long term memory" in his original post

Julian Smith
Julian Smith

There's no way his post can be taken that way in its context
he was strictly comparing good long term memory to good drilling ability
it's only because you assumed drilling = flashcard use that you misunderstood
the "context" is literally fucking nothing, and there was absolutely no argument or point to be made to speak of until you started projecting your mental diarrhea into the thread

Thomas Campbell

if you think all people at their core are capable of the same things mentally as others then you are sorely mistaken

its just like theres no such thing as normal

is it as skewed as to say only a few people can learn japanese and the rest cant? prolly not

however doing things in the right way that best suit the individual is the key to being effective in anything

before you can learn japanese you have to learn how to learn

Connor Smith

You're doing a good job of reviewing everyday, you just have to force yourself to do the extra few minutes of new cards. If you do even 5 new cards a day you'd be doing better than doing none, and it would only add a little to what you're already doing.

If Anki is really killing you you could focus entirely on reading if you wanted, though your vocabulary acquisition will be far slower.

Brody Thomas
Brody Thomas

I'll try

If you look at the graph, you'll see the reason why its so low is because I haven't done any new cards

Yeah I'm gonna try and start again I just get into phases where I have no will to do anki. Vocabulary is lacking way behind everything else so I really need to start again. Anki doesn't even take that long so I don't know why I get burnt out

If you do 10 a day, then you have a 3.5k vocabulary in a year which is okay.
If you do 20 a day, then you have a 7k vocabulary after a year which would be much more comfortable.

Do whatever you're comfortable with really, because in the end you want to learn a lot of words anyway so just go as fast as you can

My study schedule involves 40 new words a day from the 10,000 core deck and between 25 and 40 new words from a side vocab deck from other media. It takes around an hour on average to review vocab for the day, which isn't so bad.

Depends what you mean by easy to read. If you mean a better font with clearer glyphs, install the IPA Gothic and Mincho fonts, then (in Firefox) go to:
preferences > content > look for the "fonts" section and click "advanced" > in the "Fonts for:" list, select "Japanese" > under "Serif:" select "IPAPMincho", under "Sans-serif:" select "IPAPGothic", and under "Monospace:" select either "IPA Gothic" or "IPA Mincho" depending on whether you prefer Sans or Serif fonts

If you're on Chrome then I can't help you.

So I just added recall cards to my mining deck (English, recall Japanese equivalent), and my deck is set to random new cards, as opposed to seeing them in order added. I was assuming I'd get mostly recall cards since it just doubled my deck size, but all I got were recognition cards like normal.
Is Anki set up to only see the new recognition cards first, and older recall cards later, despite it being set to random and I haven't seen the recall cards yet?

The reason I set it to random, by the way, is so that I can make a brand new deck and mine new words for it, while also working on the reviews/recall cards for the other deck.
