Previous thread: >>16222059

This thread is for the discussion and learning of Japanese with raw otaku media.
If you have no interest in otaku media we recommend heading over to /int/'s 日本語スレッド.
Please use sage. This isn't /a/ or /int/, you don't have to keep bumping the thread all the time for no reason.

Let's have a nice thread by reporting and ignoring off-topic posts.

How to get your thread protected on /jp/
-Start an offtopic thread on /a/
-Wait until it gets so shitty that not even /a/ wants it
-Now that your thread is shit and hated by the board move it to /jp/
-Done! You can now circlejerk on /jp/ and the mods will ban everyone who protests.

Nope. I can't even write some of the kana from memory. It's common to hear traditional teaching methods say you have to learn to write, it's essential to learning to read, but in reality it's possible to be able to read advanced, complex literary texts and not write a single kana.

Stroke order is correct. In the picture it does look like it was done in two strokes though.

Leaving filename empty is fine.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion, I'll do exactly that. What exactly does the VN texthooker do, though?

It rips the text from the VN and outputs it to you in plaintext format so you can use Rikaisama on it and hence mine it.

I'll just respond here instead of the other thread.

You can start with Yotsuba and you probably should, but mining from it isn't easy because you'll have to type everything in. There was a Yotsuba Reading Pack that I was going to recommend, but I can't find a download of it anymore.

Hanahira is the easiest VN there is and after that I recommend Flyable Heart.

The texthooker takes the text from the VN and copies it to the clipboard, then Clipboard Inserter pastes it into Firefox so you can read/mine it with Rikaisama.

Tried reading some manga that I was told isn't very difficult and Aiura's one of them. Anyway, I need some clarification.

She's basically making fun of her by saying that by her failing, the college's average is increasing?

>> No.16237932

It depends on what you are.
If you are strong and rough kind, 'ore' is correct, and none of my people think you 'dickhead' if you use 'ore', rather think you know our language well.

>> No.16237970

What would be a good word for me? I'm considering boku. Watashi seems a bit too formal, and ore too gruff. While I'm not rude, I tend to be individualistic and I'm not afraid of speaking my mind/what I see as the truth if I feel something is wrong(something I've heard Japanese people tend to too often ignore, but don't quote me on this; I haven't actually been to Japan yet). On the other hand, I'm not really the rough type that "ore" users often seem to be. I have no problem with lending a hand or accepting help if I or someone else needs it. My only issue is that someone told me it can sound a bit immature or childish, since young kids will often use it. Any ideas on this?

I have anther opinion.
For almost of us, foreigners are characters of foreign movies or tv-shows with dubbing or subscript of translation who, young(but no child) and old, often use 'ore' in private.

>> No.16238057

Ore: full of yourself, try-hard, inconvenient.
Boku: passive, forcefully jovial and overall gay.

Stick with the neutral, morally superior, well-educated and respectful, while not at all submissive, watashi.

I would only use ore if I wanted to act cool in front of potential mating partners. But I'd rather not leave my room, thanks.

All the other generals just ignored him and went about their business as usual so they are still on /a/ and the mod realized his efforts were futile, I think, so they are still up.

Yes, you can, but it's usually reserved to foreigner names.
Anime/manga names are generally written in katakana because of a few reasons: one is the authors can choose names based on their sounds more freely. There is also the fact that it is easier to read (since kanji names may have dubious readings if you go out of the common-place pool of names). You want your audience to know your character's name and propagate them.

But I believe there is a coller reason - not limiting your character to a single set of kanji and making the audience fill in the blanks. That can add some depth to a character's name. Here's an example from the top of my head, not sure how many are true, but gives you some perspective:

There isn't a set rule for this kind of thing because there aren't any set rules governing interpersonal relationships either. In this case, since Yui and Nodoka are childhood friends, and given Yui's personality, it makes sense that she would use "-chan". Mio and Ritsu aren't that close to Nodoka but there isn't much of a difference in social standing, so (to me, at least) "-san" would come across as overly stiff.

You drop the -san when you're acquainted with someone. You go the extra mile and make it a -chan or -kun if you are either really close to them or if you are talking from a higher (informal) position - say an adult towards a kid.

If you do it with someone who hasn't given you that kind of freedom, it will sound belittling, ironic.
Which reminds me of an episode of Durarara!! where a journalist goes around asking about Shizuo, the most feared thug around. Turns out he interviews the second top-dog and he says something along "Oh, you wanna know about Shizu-chan?" and the journalist gasps at the cute, girly nickname he's given to the guy. Naturally, they are mortal enemies, and he's a cheeky bastard. Shizuo on the other hand only calls him by the first name, no honorifics, demonstrating no love, but also no politeness.

I've never understood sentence decks. With vocab you attempt to learn specific words and then when you encounter them while reading you know them already. What's the aim with sentence decks? You're unlikely to see the sentence you're doing in the wild, so are you trying to learn the individual words in the sentence? Wouldn't it be more efficient to have each word on its own card, with an example sentence designed to show the meaning of that specific word? I don't understand.

I do sentence cards so I don't need to rely on an English translation as a beginner. I can picture the situation in the sentence and if I can't (which is rare) I'll write it down and re-look it up on wwwjdic or jisho.
It also helps me remember how words can be used or what kind of words to expect around them or something. Obviously reading raw material would be best, but when my vocabulary is so small (~5500 words), I think it's best just to keep drilling the shit I know.

>> No.16241522

Sentence decks aren't for words. They're far too time consuming for that. If you want to learn words you want to use a vocabulary deck, not a sentence deck. If you want to improve your overall grasp on the language you want to read, not use sentence decks. What the hell is your concept of your method? The only people I see use sentence decks for a legitimate reason are people who are cramming for tests and people who legitimately have too few words to read. You do not have too few words to read. If you think 5000 words is too few words to read, you will never actually begin reading and you will never actually acquire japanese grammar.

But I am reading my sentences and the definitions in Japanese? I get that it's boring material, but is it really much different from reading a variety of material? I don't think I'm memorizing the sentences on my cards since there are over 10k (sentence on the front / definition sentence on the back).

Once I get a break from work I will try some vocabulary cards for ~100 or so words and see how things work out. I'm just afraid of stumbling over words in the wild -- but I guess I can see your point; the variety of context that true reading gives is much greater than the same shit over and over like I am doing.
