Where 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.

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.

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.

Sure I can see how this might be a really good beginner series.

I'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.

I don't know dude
I 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 me
really while prospering in competitive environments and feeling the best and most clear of mind surrounded by people hostile towards me
building friendly relationships with people has always felt like work for me, an increasing stack of expectations and responsibilities
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 are
maybe that is why I haven't been able to remove myself from DJT
because 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 behaviours
I suppose I am thankful to you for providing me a home DJT
I prosper thanks to you

I 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.

Ask 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.

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

>> No.21513493

So 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.

>Isn't watching anime with japanese subtitles for listening practice like doing a test with the answer under every question
what 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.

Did you read the next sentence?

>> No.21514008

a beginner's main goals for listening practice are
1. 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 natives

once 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

The 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.

itazuraneko has a large collection of subs for anime.
Subs + textractor + yomichan is the best way to look words up in anime dialogue.

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.

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.

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?

>> No.21516361

correct 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.

>> No.21516363

I 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.

katakana is a lot worse than hiragana though. But I would gladly get rid of hiragana for the greater good.

The korean writing system is probably most advanced alphabet on the planet. I learned it just for fun, but I'm not interested in korean, since it's ugly and doesn't produce that many anime.

You want to learn Japanese? It's quite simple actually: Kana -> Genki 1 -> Genki 2 -> Tobira. Start Core 6k once you've finished Genki and do RTK, Wakinaki or wathever for learning Kanji. Also check A Dictionary of Basic Japanese whenever you have any doubts on grammar. That's all you need to know for your first year if you're a quick learner.

a logical connection would be, if reoccurring similar sounds would always look alike. So let's say you have "a" would be a circle and "k" is always something similar to "I". "ka" could look like "Ø". And "e" would be a triangle and "ke" a triangle with a line in the middle. I'm perfectly aware that the latin alphabet is also very stupid and has things like "v" and "w" that are completely redundant or small "l" and big "i" that even look exactly the same. But you cannot forget how old latin is and it came from an alphabet they needed to write on fucking stone.

I saw that post too, and I liked the response more than the original comment itself:
"If people want to learn about Japanese as it is spoken by real Japanese people, they can go look up Youtube videos of Japanese people doing ordinary stuff like eating hamburgers, playing with their children, catching squids, or having conversations with their friends about stuff that happened that day. They don't need to about office/business-y words like "会議室" or "工業" for that.

If, on the other hand, people want to learn about how to understand manga without having to depend on translations, they can do that by looking up words as they go along and adding them to an anki if they happen to feel like they need some help remembering them.

Who does textbooks like genki or tobira benefit? People who want to have a cursory, general knowledge of Japanese as used in formal settings, without quite focusing on anything specifically."

By learning words and phrases in it, of course.
And what's the best way to learn these words?
By continually exposing yourself to them being used in context in media in that language.

I like how he provides no information whatsoever on how exactly he expects people to do this (or half the other shit in the guide). May as well add a step where he just says "Learn Japanese".

MIA really is just AJATT as envisioned by a massive assburger perfectionist with no concept of fun. Khatz, for all his flaws, understood other people and how they work and built his method around it, but Matt doesn't. His idea of improving AJATT is sucking all the fun out of it by adding in a load of tedious bullshit that you have to study so you can become "native-like" (or, at least, that's the hope... whether or not following MIA can actually get anyone there remains to be seen).

And this whole "native-like" thing anyway just seems like a big case of "can't see the forest for the trees". He's become so fixated on this bizarre obsession with standing on the same level as a native Japanese person that he's forgotten the whole point of learning a language in the first place - so you can use it to have fun.

Those handful of people were only able to have the time and luxury to experiment with their thoughts thanks to the millions of workers keeping society running. You'll come to understand is more as you become an adult.

ideal study interval for words OR sentences:
same day
next day
3 days after that
1 week after that
*optional* 2 weeks after that.

no need to go any further than that.

why people keep words in their anki deck for eternity is beyond me. overkill to the max. if you're getting regular input they will stay.

whats it called when you can scan the kanji characters in a manga or anything and get them in actual text, i know its in share x, or is there a better one?

don't know how to remove them quickly and the intervals get huge anyway

it takes like one second to click good on a word/sentence you know

Henlo. Person who doesn't even do these threads because I actually study and stuff here. Regarding the whole 'first 2k kanji accounts for 90~% of spoken kanji' thing, with the 2/6k Anki deck, is it referring to the first 2k cards in that deck? Because there's tons of katakana words. I want to know what the cutoff is so I can focus on just practicing those 2k mainly and grammar.

Speaking of grammar, how slow is it usually for people starting out? I'll read sentences and have no idea what they're saying all together, but know some of the individual grammar patterns being used. On top of that, my guesses of what is being said tend to be wrong. Is this just a practice thing, or do I really just need to start committing grammar to memory harder?

>> No.21518220

what does it matter? worst case scenario you'll see it again in a year and still remember and pretty much never see it on your deck again cause of the interval gets huge and hopefully you won't need an anki deck after 2-3 years, if not you'll re-learn it

RTK is not good for anyone except people who will be physically writing out japanese on a regular basis in their daily lives.
which is like 1% of learners max. if you struggle to remember kanji then just learn the radicals (~150 excluding the "radicals" that are just simpler kanji or kana) and make nnemonics for the kanji you mix up even in context. that will end up being a hundred or so kanji MAX vs. doing it for 2000+ kanji like RTK recommends. it's so unnecessary and a waste of time.
