What would be the best way to say "Would you like me to take your photo?"?
I'd just like to know because I'd rather not seem anyone fidgeting cluelessly over a photo if I end up going to Japan again. I would assume "写真を撮ってあげますか" to be it, but I'm not sure.
Also, is there any better way to ask where a place is? My friend told me everyone says "どこですか", but is there something just as/more commonly used with a closer meaning to "Do you know where" something is?

My words frozen in a machine

I had something important to say but it never came out

lost in the void of space
Welcome to loneliness.

In our town sunk to the bottom of the sea,
your smile fades away in the trees.
I can speak only of regret
like a game, destroy the light

knock knock knock, dreams of heartbreak overflow
my mouth, my ears my eyes are overflowing
putting endless anime into my brain

floating like a wooden doll

Sort of makes me want to take a break from the language. I've been on-and-off learning for around 3 years now. There's just too many rules to remember when it comes to conjugation. Think I'll stick to default dictionary vocab for now.

You're just a fucking retard, bro. I've barely touched grammar structures because I wanted to just do it all by 勘, and I've had no trouble reading. The issue is you being a lazy cunt who only learned N4 vocab in 3 years when it should have taken you 3 months.

Ignore those idiots, Flyable Heart is a masterpiece. They just dropped it 5 minutes in because it was too hard for them and have to justify it somehow.

Anyway there's no plot-enforced recommended reading order, the routes are sufficiently disjoint you can read them in whatever order you choose, so what's important is what you'll enjoy the most. Personally I think this means Yui route first because it's the best.

For vol. 1, nope (822x1198), and I remember dropping the manga for the same reason back then (I believe it was the first manga I had tried to read when I was still a beginner).

Hey just started with hiragana. Using Heisig Method - Remembering the Kana. I'm following the guidelines or "lessons" in the order that they're given and I've got three questions about it:

1) The author says that the learning order isn't the dictionary learning order and that the order that he proposes - the one where I'm going back and forth like a choose-your-own-adventure book - it supposed to help me remember better or learn faster... or something. Problem is that his cutesy texts to attach random as fuck meanings to help remember are 100% useless to me since my brain doesn't work that way. Am I going to get fucked down the line if I don't memorize it his way or can I just learn it my way and not worry about it down the road?

2) Is the actual learning order important? Since the author says the way he wrote the book is out of order, will I just have to relearn the order eventually? AKA am I better off doing it "alphabetically" right off the bat so I don't waste time?

3) Does this book contain errors? I'm on lesson 4 right now and he has a little test to see if I can remember some of the syllables:


Problem is, as far as I can tell, he has not covered ねyet and I'm wondering if I skipped a step or if the author is just dumb? I tend to skip over stuff when I read/learn, so I want to make sure I'm not fucking up so I don't have problems down the line.

I can't offer any advice on Remembering the Kana's contents, but honestly, I think you're wasting your time. If you just bruteforce it through realkana (or whatever people use nowadays) and writing it down a bunch of times, you can get kana out of the way in a day or two. No need for mnemonics or anything like that because you will see kana literally all the fucking time. It's pretty much impossible to forget them.

Use Chiitrans Lite, it works with pretty much everything and you can turn on furigana for maximum lazy mode. My only issue with it is how janky the hover info is, but I've found that in every fucking text hooker, because none of these cunts know how to program. If I move my mouse off the word, the box should disappear, retards. It doesn't need to stay there and block my view of the rest of the sentence.

For mining, I just copy out new words into a quick reply window, and then go through them all while mashing R at the end of my session.

Don't use a text hooker then. That's just a cheap and nasty trick.

Read them as a native would read them. If you truly get stuck on a word/kanji then look it up in jisho or similar.
Making it harder to cheat means you'll spend more time trying to figure out the meaning naturally, and then have a greater commitment to remembering stuff which will ultimately lead to much greater results.

Inefficient. RTK just assigns English words to the symbols and even after you complete it you have 0 Japanese knowledge and can't read anything. Whereas with the vocab method you pick up words immediately, immerse yourself in content much earlier and can tell apart kanji by context (e.g. you learn 食堂 and 食事, ergo 食 is food related).

Reading a difficult Japanese VN where I'm stuck every 2 sentences with tons of words I don't know or baby mode VN and manga?

Like I've read all NHK easy news over the last few weeks and while it was fun to read and understand everything while reading fluently, I get the feeling I don't improve cause they use simple grammar and vocabulary (I literally knew all words except satellite and radiation and stuff like that)

It's either too easy or too hard.

was looking for some advice on catching up with Japanese.

I took a japanese class that essentially followed genki I, but due to schedule conflicts I haven't been able to take second semester which covers genki II. I'll be taking second semester soon (it starts in three weeks), but I haven't practiced all too much. I remember all of both hiragana and katakana and, i just need refreshers on most other things.

I'm wondering if anyone has a suggestion of which would be more advantageous, either:
-Going through genki I
-Going through Tae Kim's Guide
I feel I'll remember vocab as I go along and do some readings, it's mostly the grammar and kanji I need to go over again.

I also fear for Japanese in this regard, specially since it's not a language that's been looming around me from an early age.

And I meant burn out from constantly having to read shit so far above your level, not just from reading in general, if you wanted to get good enough to pass the N1 after two years you'd constantly have to be one upping yourself and reading the hardest shit you could, otherwise you wouldn't progress fast enough

Edgy texthooker that allows/expects you to correct its splitting/parsing instead of leaving you with a broken parse like chiitrans does.

>> No.16333728

It's garbage that no one should use. Just set up ithvnr rikai firefox.

>> No.16333735

Yes, I agree, but people that refuse to use rikai based setups should still migrate to it instead of staying on parsers that don't allow you to fix the parsing.

Oh ffs I don't even need to memorize が ざ だ ば ぱ and all the other ones since it just follows the pattern of k into g, s into z, t into d, h into b and h into p if it's a ° instead of ``.

Does katakana follow the same rule?

Also, I downloaded the google japanese input thing but I'm wondering if there's a way to set it to use another language that isn't english for the keyboard config, for when I'm not in japanese mode.

>> No.16334177

>Does katakana follow the same rule?

As for your other question, change keyboard configs when you want to type Japanese and then change it back. Alt + Shift switches between keyboards

Is there a good way to approach production in Japanese? I've been reading, mining, going through flashcards, and writing down words for around a year and a half now and have all but neglected actually trying to express myself in the language. I've been trying it out blind recently and have had some limited success, but even I can tell that some of my choices are awkward or flat out wrong. Should I look toward lang-8?

He is right, I love talking some shitty Japanes with a streamer and getting the feeling of being understood/conveying a message well enough.

Lang8 is great for more advanced stuff, but it takes a lot of energy to write a full entry and corrections feel kinda impersonal.

I've read it, I could tell you if you want, but personally I prefer to find these kind of things out for myself and not be spoiled, so let me know if you don't mind.
Whose route are you doing first? How long did it take you to get this far?

>> No.16335002


I don't know when I started but it's been several months. I like Shizuru the best but I guess you have to do Kotori's route to get to her so that's what I'm doing.

I guess I don't want to be spoiled on specific details but I'd at least like to know how long the road ahead is length wise relative to how far I've gotten. Given all the shit that happened in the forest with no explanation I know I've probably just scratched the surface.

>> No.16335026

Ok, well there are 5 heroine routes, each one is maybe ~1/2 the length of the total common route, and after that there's even more content. So a fair bit longer to go, I remember there was a guy in DJT who read Rewrite for several hours every day for a year and a month and had a small existential crisis when it ended because he'd devoted his life to it for so long.

That's what I read over wikipedia but there does seem to be a lot more characters than just the 4 in ケルピー in this case.

So all that's left is to wait for better scans or wait for the word to somehow reappear sometime later in the story.

When creating Man'yōgana, why didn't the monks just make a character for each consonant, rather than making a character for each combination of consonant and vowel?

because single consonants other than 'n' aren't used in the japanese language

But it would reduce the character count from 46 to 14. People could've just combined the character for the specific consonant and then the vowel

からの is a (often used somewhat meanspritedly)
which I'll roughly translates to being "and?" as I cant think up anything better atm.
it's phrase which is often comedians use to urge on their co-comedians to continue in case of a joke missing the mark, where they pretend to think the joke isn't done yet and go "and?" forcing.the co-comedian into a situation where they have to think up a way to save the joke on the spot. sometimes it gets used multiple times in a row
It's not only used used by comedians or jokes but that's where it originates from. for the comic you posted you can safely just take the "and?" meaning
