I was thinking of starting a manga or light novel, so I could get sentences for an anki deck, to practice reading, but I prefer having the sentence and translation, along with a meaningful explanation of each part of the sentence, so I understand why the sentence is translated how it is translated, but quite frankly, I don’t have the time to juggle that along with wanikani reviews and lessons, anki reviews, genki studies, and school, so I thought I could make this a community project, which would benefit a larger group of people with the same aspirations, and issues as me.
Essentially, rather than a group reading, I was thinking that I could make a google spreadsheet, or doc, and type every sentence in a manga or lightnovel of choice (going chapter by chapter of course, not to overwhelm) and anybody can go into the document, and translate, or add the reading, or add an explanation. Essentially do whatever you want, without changing the original sentence. This also includes fixing sentences/furigana/explanations that need reworking, or adding to previously made explanations.
Once all the sentences are properly accounted for, I’ll add each one to an anki deck, along with the readings, translations, and explanations, and upload it here so anyone can download it.
If you don’t have the time or confidence to edit the document, you can just download the finished product, and if you want to test your Japanese skills, you can try to translate the sentences.
As for what will be translated, that can be decided later, but suggestions would be nice, I was thinking おやすみプンプン。I just wanted to ask this for feedback. Once enough people subscribe to the post, and agree with the idea, and I’m done creating the actual document, I’ll post it onto this same thread.
