๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š Read every day challenge - Spring 2023 ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ

I finished ่ŠฑๆŸใฏๆฏ’ today and it was fine. I thought the very last scene in the book was a delight, but I really wasnโ€™t that into the โ€˜final revealโ€™. My review is here but I didnโ€™t write that much as it was neither a phenomenal book nor a terrible one. Probably a good entry-level adult novel, though. Provided you like crime.

Major spoilers, dark themes warning:

So throughout the book we are told that the man receiving letters (็œŸๅฃ) telling him to call off his marriage to ใ‹ใชใฟ was charged with rape 4 years ago, but that he denies doing this. Due to privacy laws, the victims name was never revealed to him and scrubbed from court documents. We come to find out the letters were actually intended for ใ‹ใชใฟ and were sent by her father who knows that she faked her rape charge against ็œŸๅฃ using semen of his she stole from her part time job cleaning love hotels. She was obsessed with and stalking ็œŸๅฃ, but because she was a plain girl without connections she felt sheโ€™d have no chance at getting him. So she decided to destroy his social status.
I haveโ€ฆnot so great feelings about using false rape charges as the โ€˜gotchaโ€™. Part of it is probably cultural - itโ€™s not unusual to hear men bemoaning woman being believed when they accuse someone of sexual misconduct. Itโ€™s a rare thing, and I doubt most women would want to undergo the scrutiny that comes with those charges (and in fact wanting to avoid that is why legitimate cases sometimes donโ€™t get brought!) and every time itโ€™s used as a plot point it kind of makes it seem more common than it is, to my eyes.
I have no idea if the plot twist was as unpleasant to Japanese readers, although quite a few people note they read it in the library for some reason :joy:

I would like to participate! Just need to wait a couple weeks to get my laptop fixed so I can add myself to the participant list and make a proper home post. I donโ€™t want to mess anything up in the meantime. Iโ€™ll still read everyday until then, though! :slightly_smiling_face::frog:

Sneaking in a little last-minute home post here :joy: welcome to the spring challenge everyone! Itโ€™s always exciting to start out fresh and see what everyoneโ€™s up to :blush:

Background

Iโ€™m currently in the era of visual novels apparently, though really what else is new :joy: The Zero Escape VN club Iโ€™m hosting just started up so thatโ€™ll be an ongoing project, in addition to BU$TAFELLOWS which I may or may not stick to the schedule for haha. Iโ€™m also still working through Steins;Gate when I circle back to that, so lots to keep me busy! Iโ€™ll probably also throw in some manga and such for funsies (like when the OHSHC club starts :eyes:) and maybe read a normal novel at some point, but who knows!

Iโ€™m only at level 8 but I just started reading on and off (more off). I donโ€™t understand most of what I read but i feel itโ€™s good practice anyways. It is exiting when I run across kanji that I know. Iโ€™m hoping this challenge will keep me focused and iโ€™ll start a new reading habit.

I will be reading:
Todai Easy Japanese (1 news article per day)
ๅฑฅใ„ใฆใใ ใ•ใ„ใ€้ทนๅณฐใ•ใ‚“. (1 or 2 chapters per day)
maybe ๅƒใจๅƒๅฐ‹ใฎ็ฅž้š ใ— if i finish the above manga early.

Today I read an entire chapter of ใƒใ‚งใƒณใ‚ฝใƒผใƒžใƒณ (:guide_dog::birthday::gun: ) with relative ease! More than that, I actually enjoyed it and got into flow a little! ใ‚„ใฃใŸ๏ผ๏ผ๏ผ

Something thatโ€™s made a huge difference to my enjoyment and comprehension is changing from XTREME HARDCORE IMMERSION MODE down to something more beginner, which fits my skill level having just finished Genki 1. That looks like:

  1. Letting myself immediately look up words & phrases I donโ€™t know, instead of trying to work them out by force;
  2. Letting myself plug the fully conjugated word into DeepL, instead of only the stem;
  3. Instead of trying to break down and decode a sentence with grammar that isnโ€™t making sense to me, Iโ€™ve been plugging the chunks into DeepL one at a time until I figure out the gist, and then double checking the whole sentence. This means Iโ€™m surfacing a lot more nuance and understanding the ways that combos of phrases I understand individually modify each other when they interact.

Overall, Iโ€™m finding that Iโ€™m learning AND enjoying more by not being a โ€œfigure it out on your own or dieโ€ purist. Feelsgoodman. Perfectionism can eat my shorts.

Another challenge! I think this is my 7th? Canโ€™t believe itโ€™s been so many already.
This time my goals will be to not get burnt out trying to keep up with all the clubs Iโ€™ve joined/want to join (Iโ€™m a danger to myself) and somehow also read a non-bookclub book on the side. Good luck to meโ€ฆ
Even if it doesnโ€™t happen 100% itโ€™s always fun to have big goals

Bookclubs Iโ€™ll try to follow

  • BU$TAFELLOWS (VN club)
  • ๆฅต้™่„ฑๅ‡บ 9ๆ™‚้–“9ไบบ9ใฎๆ‰‰ (Zero Escape: 999) (VN club)
  • ๅƒ•ใŒๆ„›ใ—ใŸใ™ในใฆใฎๅ›ใธ (IBC)
  • A Dictonary of Japanese Grammar club
  • ๅ››็•ณๅŠ็ฅž่ฉฑๅคง็ณป (The Tatami Galaxy)

Other things Iโ€™d like to read:

  • ใ‚ใŸใ—ใฎๅนธใ›ใช็ตๅฉš (Book)
  • ๆบ€ๆœˆใ‚’ใ•ใŒใ—ใฆ (Manga)

Missed the winter challenge so Iโ€™m happy to be back for spring! Iโ€™ve spent the beginning of this year reading a lot of manga so my goal for this challenge is to focus more on novels and games.

I donโ€™t know that I did that well with the last challenge but should do ok for the first couple of weeks at least!

I think Iโ€™m in about 5 book clubs so not necessarily planning to read outside of the clubs too much.

Updated some of my goals last minute. While I do want to re-read One Piece, I donโ€™t like the pressure of doing it for the challenge. Right now I am enjoying playing Final Fantasy VII again so I think the only thing I really want to commit to is Tatami Galaxy. Iโ€™ll update every day what I read but I want to be more open about what I consume for fun.

Yay April! :tada: Spring challenge time!

Iโ€™ve been looking forward to this a lot. ๅ››ๆœˆใฏๅ›ใฎๅ˜˜ was I think the 2nd series I ever purchased in japanese, and itโ€™s one I tried to read last april but decided it was too hard to really attempt. So this april, Iโ€™m very excited to see if I can read the whole thing! Itโ€™s only 44 chapters, but these are pretty long chapters compared to what Iโ€™ve been reading: 50-60 pages. To manage this I need to be reading about 1.5 chapters a day.

Because of that Iโ€™m not really going to be trying anything else for the duration of april. Basically not gonna worry about any other reading or books until I finish this (but Iโ€™ll find time for the clubs somehow, though, probably :laughing: )

Unfortunately this is probably also going to be my busiest month irl, so weโ€™ll see how much I can pull off.

Read:
ๅ››ๆœˆใฏๅ›ใฎๅ™“ ch 1 - oh man this felt so much easier than last year. I wish I had more time to read today but oh well :cherry_blossom:

I read more than 20 pages from Ruri Dragon. My speed has increased just a little bit and Iโ€™m starting to notice a lot of words from all over the place - itโ€™s honestly the best feeling ever. I also read some graded sentences from Kanji Study and although I spent only around 20 mins doing that, I learned a lot of new/slang words (that Iโ€™ve added to Bunpro reviews). Iโ€™m excited to see all of this in anime now.

Today was my immersion day, so I could easily finish both challenges. My main goal during these challenges is to never lose the streak. I want to sit and read/listen for 5 mins if thatโ€™s all I can manage. 5 minutes is my minimum and thereโ€™s no limit to the max amount of time I spend doing this obviously.

Apr 1, Sat of Week 1 of Spring Q2 2023 :cherry_blossom:

  • DoBJG: Characteristics of JP Grammar - 6. Politeness and Formality

Characteristic sectionโ€™s week has came up. Maybe I would talk about it later.

  • ๆฎ‹ๆœˆ่จ˜ : ๆœˆๆ™ฏ็Ÿณ Ch.8/2

Not yet. Will finish the chapter next time.

  • ใ†ใ‚‰ใ‚‰่ฟท่ทฏๅธ– Vol.4 (26-37%)

ใฏใ„ใ‹ใ‚‰ still continues to trip me from the sentence scribbles. (Itโ€™s ใƒใ‚คใ‚ซใƒฉ.)

Words of the day
  • ๆ‚ชๅ‹(ใ‚ใใ‚†ใ†) = a close friend, โ€œpartner in crimeโ€ / a bad friend
  • ๅธซๅผŸ(ใ—ใฆใ„) = teacher and student. However, student = ๅผŸๅญ(ใงใ—).
  • ็›ธๅˆ(ใ‚ใ„ใ‚ใ„)๏ฝž = doing together, e.g. in ็›ธๅˆ(ใ‚ใ„ใ‚)ใ„ๅ‚˜(ใŒใ•). I confused the reading and whether it can be reversed with ็›ธๆ€ง(ใ‚ใ„ใ—ใ‚‡ใ†) ย  / ย  ๅˆๆ€ง(ใ‚ใ„ใ—ใ‚‡ใ†). Another ใ‚ใ„ใ‚ใ„ is ๅ’Œๆฐ—่—นใ€…(ใ‚ใใ‚ใ„ใ‚ใ„), which uses different Kanji.
  • ็ฃ”ๅˆ‘(ใŸใฃใ‘ใ„) = crucifixion. Has Furigana. The first Kanji is ็ฃ”(ใฏใ‚Šใคใ‘), but add delivering punishment (ๅˆ‘(ใ‘ใ„)ใ™ใ‚‹).
  • ้ฌฃ(ใŸใฆใŒใฟ) = mane of a horse. Has Furigana. The reading makes sense when thinking of ็ซ‹(ใŸ)ใฆใ‚‹ + ้ซช(ใ‹ใฟ)(ใฎๆฏ›(ใ‘)). About the Kanji, perhaps ้ซช(ใ‹ใฟ)(ใฎๆฏ›(ใ‘)) + ้ผ (ใญใšใฟ)?
  • ็ฏ€(ใตใ—)ใใ‚Œ็ซ‹(ใ )ใค = to be knotty (of a tree; a hand) = ็ฏ€ๆฆ‘็ซ‹(ใตใ—ใใ‚Œใ )ใค

:speech_balloon: ๅค่ฆ‹ใ•ใ‚“ใฏใ€ใ‚ณใƒŸใƒฅ็—‡ใงใ™ใ€‚ โ†’ first 2 chapters of volume 2
:white_flower: A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar โ†’ 2 sections
:books: Fiction/Nonfiction in English โ†’ V is for Vulnerable (start to finish; nonfiction) and some chapter of a fiction book

I wanted to start April 1 strong, and I have by reading a bit of all three different things I want to focus on.

I started volume 2 of Komi-san as an easy-ish manga read to have on the side of my two hard main reads (VNs). There were a few words I could have looked up, and a couple of kanji I recognized from WK but could not placeโ€ฆ But I decided not to look it up. Lost some more exact comprehension but nothing beyond that.

Read a bit of the grammar dictionary. Only one section left for this week, so I guess Iโ€™ll finish that early.

Lastly I had a bit of an interested experience with the fiction book I'm reading.

I do enjoy reading romance a lot, especially regency romance ones. And Iโ€™ve read a few from this author and enjoyed them, but I started the first couple of chapters last year I think and then put it aside, because the plot revealed it was about to go away from all the things I enjoy most. (The high society part, with balls and intrigues. Otherwise I might as well not read a historical romance.) And today, after reading a couple of more chapters, I decided to skip the middle and jump to the end. The end Iโ€™ve been interested in reading for a while, because I kept peeking at it as I tried to read the opening to gain enough interest to get there (I donโ€™t really care about spoilers because they do not spoil the reading experience for me in general, plus all romances ends the same: the couple gets a happily ever after :joy:).

And I find myself being immediately pulled into the story towards the end and not feeling like I missed much (I guess I missed the couple falling in love, but since nothing else about that part was of interestโ€ฆ). Iโ€™m a few/couple chapters from the end so I will probably finish it before I go to sleep.

This is the first time Iโ€™ve completely skipped the middle of a book. Canโ€™t say I ever thought Iโ€™d be able to do that, well, I guess most of the time I wouldnโ€™t be interested in the end if the beginning wasnโ€™t engaging enough. xD
