Prove me your did not learn your kanjis for nothing, cheers!

Hey everybody!

This post is partially related to this post of today about kanjis being useful or not.
I was not intended to post here separately from my [MinnaNoKeigo] thread but we decided to add a cheer to the wanikanian who want to challenge themself reading useful stuff in our new content.
It is so fast that I think only Wanikani people will be able to enjoy I think haha.

Can you read the kanji at conversation speed, and even better do you understand the definition of HANPANAI at 2:35 ?
Prepare yourself, it is coming

Wanikani reference L27:


Or maybe we screw it and this is impossible to understand? :scream:

Sorry that I responded over on your usual thread, this one wasn’t up yet.
When we convert everyone to Wanikani, then it will be useful to all. :slight_smile:

Immediate reaction (especially after the other thread): :sweat_smile:
Followed by: “I can read as fast as I listen if I’m doing both”.
And then: “Wait is that you in the video?”

Dictionary says “sort of mostly”

Very good answer actually, even Kei speak way faster than the JLPt guy in the Listening exam!

It is me in the video :see_no_evil:

The dictionnary is not updated I fear haha

Just binged the rest of them…
I like that it’s full speed but intended at learners, and being able to switch off subtitles in the later videos is a big improvement :+1:

Haven’t watched the video yet, but I can answer this right now: No.

I usually watch with 日本語 subtitles on so reading them at conversation speed isn’t too bad, although I do trip up on a few kanji here and there. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now so I think I’ve gotten better at it since I was terrible in the beginning.

However, I only do this with videos that have content where I mostly understand the vocab like your videos and Sambonjuku. I’m still learning. :slight_smile:

Keep up the videos, they’re great!

I can recognise some kanji at conversation speed… with subtitles >.>

Better than I could this time last year, though!

But…

…But I did learn my my kanji for nothing…

When you watch a lot of videos by seiyuu which put japanese subtitles in their videos… (I’m really addicted to Hanae Natsuki’s videos these days) I did not learn kanji for nothing!!!
