I've recently begun climbing the mountain that is the Japanese language. I've learned all the radicals and now i'm ready to get into Kanji. I'm not going to be using mnemonic decives because they seem contrived and annoying. I have enough free time to just use the paper, write over and over again method and that woked perfectly well for radicals. 20 a day that way seems doable. I don't plan on learning stroke order and I don't think i'll need it for my purposes. That's all well and good, but I don't know whether learning the Onyomi and Kunyomi readings is worth it or not. There's a lot of mixed signals from what people say online. Some say I can just learn vocab and take, "mental note", of how the kanji are pronounced, others say it's necessary to learn them to guess how to pronounce things. I'd like to be able to know how something is pronounced just by reading it, but I don't know how important that it. You've got to help me, ubuu.

Not OP but would you say using formal language all the time is necessary? Like, for sure when talking to like your co-workers, teachers, employers, etc. But on social media especially, I don't personally see the point. Maybe that one is more obvious, but it feels nebulous to say the least.


File: 1552922103096.jpg (11.16 KB, 240x170, 1548197705309.jpg)

All the time? No.
You only use it if you feel it's necessary. Either because of context (as you mentioned, when talking with co-workers, boss, etc), or simply because you feel more comfortable using formal speech. For example, when asking for permissions to translate something, or when I'm discussing with jap anons here or in other places, I tend to write in formal form even when it's not really necessary; I'm just showing them that I was willing to learn their language to have a better communication, and that while I was at it, I was going to use it correctly. This hasn't stopped me from going full dick on futaba or other forums, à-la Makise Kurisu, if the heat of the moment made me do so. Practically the same when I go full autistic in english, to be honest.

So, tl;dr this is highly personal, use whatever you feel comfortable with. Most jap anons write informally and with slang, but it's not odd to see the one using -masu and desu everywhere.


Reading without furigana, if the word is understandable through its kanji, should you look up the pronunciation or just skip it since you understand?


If you are learning for your own entertainment (eg for reading manga/playing games), you can skip the reading if you don't want to check it. But I recommend looking it up and checking if there's an odd case if it bothers you not knowing how to pronounce it. You will eventually learn which words are like that and won't need to check anymore.
If you're going to use the language actively, then you really should check that up just in case.

I started just like you, with tons of free time and tons of desire to learn. If you keep at it every day, it is very easy to integrate the studying into your every day routine.

You can do it! 頑張ろー!!!

I've heard from a lot places that newer touhou games are far worse than their predecessors, but I haven't really seen anybody say why. I've only played a few so i'm kind of out of the loop. How have the games gotten worse and why? Are people just tired of the same thing?


File: 1539924324949.png (491.29 KB, 833x1000, __hinanawi_tenshi_touhou_d….png)

So I guess nobody here actually plays touhou?


Yes, I don't feel like replying because I see no point. If you enjoy them just play them.
But if you reall want to know, most people hate the new designs and think ZUN is out of ideas and copying fangames too much/taking too many fan memes seriously, hence why the newer games "worse". If you've actually played all of them you'd see some sort of deranging in quality, but for that you need to play them and judge by yourself.


Unpopular "gimmicky" mechanics and just more of the same. ZUN has been lying in the status quo for ages now, QA only improves ever so slightly from game to game. Can't say he's doing something wrong though, guy has to make dough for beer.

>If anything, its more specific than a typical genre.
I'm not seeing it. My picture of it is that demographic and genre are two semi-independent ways of categorising media, the first one based on who consumes it and the second one based on what themes are in the work itself. You could have a shoujo fantasy manga, or a seinen fantasy manga, for example, and they'd both explore the themes of fantasy in ways most suitable to the demographic. I say semi-independent instead of independent because as you said different demographics like different genres, there's not an equal amount of sports tournament anime/manga for shounen vs josei for example.

Even in the states there's such a thing as YA novels/movies. It's also considered a type of, "genre". When you hear ya, a lot of the same stuff comes to mind: shitty romances, love triangles, plain Jane that everyone thinks is special, etc. I think seinen has a lot of commonalities too. Lots of death, complex concepts and questions, older male protagonist who's thrust into extraordinary circumstances, demanding of audience. Death Note and Parasyte have all of those things in common. If it wasn't a genre, I wouldn't know what to expect when going into one. Not all of it fits that mold, but I think it can articulate a person's preferences none the less.


I have been enjoying Overlord 3, Middle Manager Tonegawa and Megalobox.
Looking forward for the goblin slayer. Indeed, there are lot of good things lately.

At three episodes in, it's a little too early to say. Battle Tendecy is extremely rewatchable for me.

Does anyone know the name of the song that plays in episode 3 right when they're entering the witch's domain?

It's a really good song but it's only used like twice in the whole show. I think they also use it later on in the show, when Homura transforms.



No, but thanks, I found it. The song I was thinking of is Pugna Cum Maga.

Like I've been saying since 1989, everything is now poseur anime copping stories 'n' styles from the greats. New shows are watched by poseurs, loved by poseurs and should fuck off forever. What, were you born after 1976 and think you have an opinion? Haha, you baby cunt little twerp fuck off GTFO out of here with your baggy Naruto headband you Funimation fapping little bitch. How about you watch to some of your favorite moeshits like Strike Witches and Cardcaptor Sakura and eat pocky and write poems to your waifu. Haha, who cares? You think you're all manly and cool because you all just hit puberty in your 20's and can grow these red wispy bullshit grayless beards on your pizza-cratered little baby faces and you revere streaming, steaming trash like .hack as if it were the classics. You wouldn't know a classic unless Coca-Cola printed it on the bottle I want to break on your eyes and slash your throat with you impossible nerd. I oughta slap you so hard that your dumb snapback hat will never fit on your chicken-neck topping little dumb head again you Rei loving vagina. Fuck you.

>reboot is 100x better and original in production and writing

Maybe you should stop thinking every one of the 30+ anime a season will all be amazing and watch the good stuff. Good anime can still be made, but there's just so much being produced sometimes you miss it. Anime just got really popular and a huge cashcow. Japs just want money in the end after all.

Anything made after the Shouwa era isn't real anime. Even then, Shouwa era stuff is pushing it.

I was really excited about anime a year ago but that excitement seems to have ebbed. The last anime I got all the way through was Eva, and that was quite awhile ago. After that I started Serial Experiments Lain but my computer's fan died before I got all the way through it and by the time I got a new one I'd lost the interest the series built in me during the time I watched it. I know I'd love it but I don't know if I'll actually enjoy watching the rest of it now. Awhile after that I read a few manga series and they were enjoyable but they didn't do much to arouse serious interest in reading a lot of others.

It's like that with a lot of things for some reason, there are a lot of books I own I haven't gotten through simply because I stopped halfway through them to read something else or lost interest, and a lot of them are ones I know I'd like. I'm not sure what anime to watch, because the ones that sound really appealing are ones I usually get halfway through the first episode of and then either get bored or feel obligated to get through, which paradoxically kills my desire to watch the rest.

Are there many anime series which are interesting enough to grip you from the beginning? If so I'd appreciate hearing what they are.

There aren't too many good full length anime of either genre to begin with anyway. I'd guess that it'd be especially hard to make a 5 minute one.

yuasa is my favorite director for sure. If theres one thing I can say to help out people in OPs position, Id say look for the really creative stuff like this. Thats hard to explain what constitutes "creativity" but really, anime is best in its hidden gems. The kind of stuff that you hear of on a small imageboard by pure fucking chance and decide to look at it.

The same went for ultra heaven.


Oh damn, thank you, anon.
