Oh that means previously which is… which is… mazu?

Didn’t look it up and don’t have it burned yet. Need proof? I got street cred. (I’m praying I’m correct)

It means “first of all”, mazu. I kept missing it because of the “previous” kanji so I feel you :’)

Totally feel you. That’s been hovering in Guru for a while for me. At the moment, it’s in Master territory.

Trying to figure out how to use the platform. I started yesterday but am not progressing as much as I had hoped.

Yeah, giphy makes it sort of a pain in the butt.

Doesn’t work:

Edit: Of course, images larger than 3MB will still fail after 5 minutes when Discourse tries to download the image to its own server.

You can reduce gif sizes with: https://ezgif.com/optimize
For video gifs, the easiest is to remove every Nth frame. Removing every 2nd frame should reduce the image size by half]

It starts slow in the beginning, but it’ll ramp up pretty fast. You need to get all radicals in a level to guru before unlocking kanji, then you need to get 90% of the kanji to guru to move on to the next wanikani level. At least use your first 3 free wanikani levels before you decide whether or not you like the site :slight_smile:

I’m currently fighting with these lovely words.

感心 かんしん Admiration
感情 かんじょう Feeling
感じ かんじ Feeling
感想 かんそう Impressions

I can’t remember the meaning to the words or interpret the mnemonic wrong.

For example, 感 means feeling and 心 heart, so it makes sense to me that your “heart feelings” are your feelings.

Given the amount of items that have feeling as the main translation it’s no wonder that I feel like typing in feeling for the meaning :stuck_out_tongue:

I also managed to break my snipping tool, had to make the screenshot with the keyboard shortcut :joy:

Man I feel you. I wish everything was like, “ME PUT MOUNTAIN AND FIRE TOGETHER, ME MAKE VOLCANO”, but unfortunately I have to engage all three of my brain cells for some of these.

I had 200 reviews today because I hit a new level yesterday so when vocab cards came around I might as well have smashed my keyboard with a hammer and hit enter because I pretty much guessed. What’s Koichi gonna do, hold me back for vocab? hahahahaHAHAHAHA
