Edit : There’s a WK deck for anki you can look up. I simply sorted in the anki client browser by “object” to find all the 480ish radical cards and moved them to a separate deck. now I’m gonna try and blast through all of them so I can create my own cards on the fly watching anime.
there is also heisig RTK anki deck for radicals , which I might download . it is only 217 radicals (wk has broken some of the radicals into smaller components) , but might be usefull since I’m studying chinese aswell.
Hey. tbh, I’ve had wanikani for a while, It helps but I find it hard to be interested. I’d like to venture into something abit more immersive , such as watching anime with english and jp subs simutaniously and creating my own anki cards for kanji using that. wanikani anime sentence is super cool atm, but i’d like to work my way slowly through an anime episode, get the kanji and meanings , get the audio on my phone - listen through when i want during the day, and rinse repeat. I’m just way more motivated to speak and comprehend rather than reading , that what gets me excited the most.
so, I was thinking of learning outside of wanikani , all of the radicals , so when I watch an anime I’l be able to quickly in my head create a mnemonic for new kanji and words, without needing to pause at each kanji, open wanikani, search the kanji, find the radicals it’s made of, create an srs card in anki, continue the episode…
any anki decks I can do that with? or with torii etc?
I use animelon to watch with both subtitles and hiragana, and yomichan to quickly get translation.
yes, I mentioned the samurai champooloo reference because he didn’t explain why avoid jap.
I think I’ve heard it in “Gran Torino” also now I’m recalling.
does that mean I am reincarnation of a ww2 US marine who fought Japan?
This post became interesting. Just to clarify, i’ve written jap because that’s just how ive written thus far. Realised it’s a slur after someone mentioned, started to recall examples afterward - this isnt a debate for using the term. ( though if someone has a good case speak up!)
Also from wikipedia :
In Canada, the term Jap Oranges was once very common, and was not considered derogatory, given the widespread Canadian tradition of eating imported Japanese-grown oranges at Christmas dating back to the 1880s (to the degree that Canada at one time imported by far the bulk of the Japanese orange crop each year), but after WW2 as consumers were still hesitant to purchase products from Japan the term Jap was gradually dropped and they began to be marketed as “Mandarin Oranges”. Today the term Jap Oranges is typically only used by older Canadians.
