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

Full day at work without much actual work to do, so I was reading throughout various meetings. Read pages 162-176 of Chamber of secrets and four NHKEasy article. I also translated the school lunch menu for the month and read the school lunch newsletter (definitely not 100% on the comprehension of that though).

I skipped reading yesterday. :see_no_evil:

Today I picked up ็งใฏๅนฝ้œŠใ‚’่ฆ‹ใชใ„ | L30?? for the first time in a long time and had to get my brain re-adjusted as Iโ€™d apparently stopped reading midway though a chapter. Itโ€™s alright but it doesnโ€™t really excite me - debating switching it to be my bedtime book and have my bedtime book be my couch book :thinking:

Also, I incorrectly posted this in the winter thread last time (:sweat_smile:) but a book club I host over on the Natively forums is currently voting. Itโ€™s the Mystery Book Club so if you enjoy mystery novels I recommend it, and weโ€™re happy to help with questions about grammar and such. The pacing is usually around 30 pages per week, although final weeks do tend to speed up because people get antsy to know the answers.


Summary post

Day 3: April 3rd
Missed :upside_down_face:

Day 4: April 4th
What did I read?: ใƒšใƒณใ‚ฎใƒณใƒปใƒใ‚คใ‚ฆใ‚งใ‚ค :penguin:
How much did I read?: 3 pages
How long did it take me?: 15 min

Wow new record for earliest missed challenge day for me :upside_down_face: I honestly just could not do it yesterday, idek, I was like all I need to do is open the book and read one page to keep my challenge streak, but I still couldnโ€™t get myself to do it :sob: I really donโ€™t know how to explain this, Iโ€™m so tired for no reason and sort of bored but also everything just feels torturous to do.

I did force myself to open the book today. Why is it a struggle this is supposed to be fun youโ€™re supposed to enjoy this hhhhh brain why are you like this Hoping I will be out of the doldrums tomorrow :upside_down_face:

Read: ๅ‰ฃใŒๅ›
Time: Way too long
Decided to start playing the game ๅ‰ฃใŒๅ› which Iโ€™ve heard really good things about but also that itโ€™s not an easy read. Itโ€™s definitely not, the exposition at the beginning was rough to get through. I almost decided to drop it and come back later but I decided to push through. Itโ€™s set in the Edo period and there was a lot of historical descriptions and name dropping of people whose names I didnโ€™t know how to read so my reading pace slowed down a lot. Once I got past there though things went a lot more smoothly and I got really into the game and ended up playing until way too late.
Edit: Apparently thereโ€™s a trial version on the switch if anyoneโ€™s interested

:white_flower:Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar
Just reviewed some things, making sure I understand each key word from Grammatical Terms.

Focused on some side quests and leveling my ใ‚ฆใƒƒใ‚ญใƒผ so that it was useful.




  • 41 pages of ใ‚ตใƒžใƒผใ‚ตใ‚คใƒ€ใƒผ, finishing ch 1 and starting ch 2, leaving off on pg 63. Oh my god. The neighboring town (across a mountain pass) is ้ˆด็„กๅธ‚ Suzumu-shi, which in 2.43 is the name of a town that neighbors ็ด‹ไปฃ็”บ Monshiro-chou (not with mountains between), both of which are where several of the 2.43 characters live. I wonder if itโ€™s the same Suzumu.
    Oh no, ch 2 starts with a flashback to the beginning of last year, and Iโ€™ve become fond of the teacher who will die mysteriously 4 months from then.
Some vocab of note:

ไธ€็†ใ‚ใ‚‹ (ใ„ใกใ‚Šใ‚ใ‚‹) [expression, ใƒฉไบ”] to have a point; to have some truth; to some sense; to have some merit
่ฆชๅˆ†ๅญๅˆ† (ใŠใ‚„ใถใ‚“ใ“ใถใ‚“) [n.] boss and henchmen; boss and underlings
่’ผ็ฉน (ใใ†ใใ‚…ใ†) [n.] formal/literary version of ้’็ฉบ
่Ÿฌๆ™‚้›จ (ใ›ใฟใ—ใใ‚Œ) [expression, n.] outburst of cicadas singing; chorus of cicadas
ๆญฏใฉใ‚ใŒใ‹ใ‹ใ‚‰ใชใ„ [expression, ใ„-adj.] unstoppable (of something bad)
็”ทๅ‹ใ‚Š (ใŠใจใ“ใพใ•ใ‚Š) [n., ใช-adj., ใฎ-adj.] (of a gal) strong-minded; spirited; mannish
็ผใ‘็ˆ›ใ‚Œใ‚‹ (ใ‚„ใ‘ใŸใ ใ‚Œใ‚‹) [่‡ชไธ€] to be hideously burned; to be burned raw
ๅคœ็›ฎใŒๅˆฉใ(ใ‚ˆใ‚ใŒใใ) [expression, ใ‚ซไบ”] to see well in the dark; to have good night vision

ๅพŒๅคฉ็š„(ใ“ใ†ใฆใ‚“ใฆใ) [ใช-adj.] acquired. I also happened upon that ๅพŒๅคฉ means โ€œthe day after tomorrowโ€ in Chinese, though it has no such meaning in Japanese.
ๅˆไฝ“้จ“(ใฏใคใŸใ„ใ‘ใ‚“ or ใ—ใ‚‡ใŸใ„ใ‘ใ‚“) [n.] first sexual experience. It also more generally just means โ€œfirst experience (of something),โ€ but in this case it was clearly the former lol
ๅพŒใ‚ใ‚ใŸใ„ (ใ†ใ—ใ‚ใ‚ใŸใ„) [ใ„-adj.] guilty (conscience, feeling, look, etc.); (feeling) uneasy


Feeling this, though for me I kind of know the reason, Iโ€™ve got a nasty cold and am on a tour of Jordan (Egypt last week).

Yesterday I walked 22000 steps, many of them uphill, and felt like death in the evening with low grade fever. My Covid test is negative but Iโ€™m suspicious stillโ€ฆ

4/4 1 page ๅคœใ‚ซใƒ•ใ‚ง - I did push myself to read a single page!

I have thoughts, but itโ€™s already late here, so theyโ€™ll have to wait until tomorrow.


If youโ€™re on a PC, a really easy way to do this is to type your Japanese text in Word, then use Ruby in Word to put on furigana. Then copy and paste from Word into Wanikani. The coding happens automatically somehow and it shows up correctly.


The ruby button in Word looks like this:

Tired of reading in Japanese? English version here~

Read Everyday Challenge โ€ข Days 3-4

Iโ€™m reading my textbook everyday, according to plan! Just barely thoโ€ฆ (Tโˆ€T )
Itโ€™ll take a lot of time, so I plan to add vocabulary and grammar points that I donโ€™t know over the weekend.

To write in Japanese, or not write in Japanese... extra notes!

I sympathise with wanting to wait to use Japanese until you know there wonโ€™t be any errors. In the end, I learned just diving in and making mistakes is the best way for me to learn!

All this to say โ€“ I donโ€™t recommend anyone use my writing/speaking as a point of study 'cause itโ€™s probably full of inaccuracies haha. Also, if anyone feels the urge to correct me please feel welcome, and Iโ€™ll update my posts~

:open_book: :desktop_computer: :cherries: :cherry_blossom: April 2

Played B$ for 1.5h, finishing Shuuโ€™s route so Iโ€™m up to date with the club. Read this weekโ€™s ๅƒ•ใŒๆ„›ใ—ใŸใ™ในใฆใฎๅ›ใธ for the IBC and restarted reading ใ‚ใŸใ—ใฎๅนธใ›ใช็ตๅฉš which I dropped back in November around the 25% mark if I remember correctly due toโ€ฆlife. Only got to 2% though.

:open_book: :desktop_computer: :cherries: :cherry_blossom: April 3

Read some of this weekโ€™s Grammar Dictionary reading, started 999 for the VN club although I only played for 15 minutes, and read ใ‚ใŸใ—ใฎๅนธใ›ใช็ตๅฉš (2% โ†’ 13%).

:open_book: :desktop_computer: :cherries: :cherry_blossom: April 4

Some Grammar Dictionary, and then mostly reading ใ‚ใŸใ—ใฎๅนธใ›ใช็ตๅฉš (13% โ†’ 28%). Iโ€™m already past the place where I dropped it the first time, that was faster than expected!

Iโ€™ve also heard both of those! I really want to play it eventually but probably need to get a few more games/books under my belt first. Looking forward to seeing how you fare with it and if the hard parts are just at the start or throughout the whole game.

Iโ€™m back and better than ever - had to take yesterday off cause my burnout was really not happy, but I got through another chapter today so the rest definitely panned out. I will at some later point reply to all you wonderful people, but for now Iโ€™m just popping in to say I read.



Apr 3
I read around 10 pages of ใƒœใƒƒใ‚ณใกใ‚ƒใ‚“ if people wonder it took me around 45 minutes.

Played some more Ciel no Surge DX ใ‚คใ‚ชใƒณ has finally finished the new costume itโ€™s a shrine maiden outfit. It just took her four days in real life.

Restored some of her memories. She rescued and became friends with a baby dragon. I also wish I had a dragon I could mount it and fly on its back. :laughing:

with jjk over, iโ€™ve started the only other single volume of manga i have left (everything else is a series), ๆ€งๅˆฅ(ใ›ใ„ในใค)ใ€ŒใƒขใƒŠใƒชใ‚ถใ€ใฎๅ›(ใใฟ)ใธ and read two chapters (which are called โ€˜paintsโ€™ for, idk, reasons). iโ€™ve actually skimmed this volume before, but there was a fair bit i missed so itโ€™s worth going through again in more detail. bit wary of where thisโ€™ll go, but itโ€™s alright to read.

words that stood out: ๅฏ(ใญ)ใผใ‘ใ‚‹ (to be half asleep), ไผผ้ก”็ตต(ใซใŒใŠใˆ) (portrait, likeness), and ใฑใฑใฃใจ (quickly) cos it sounds fun. this ruby script is a life saver omg

Picking up ใ€†็™พๅˆ was a good choice- it might be the first time since Iโ€™ve started reading that Iโ€™ve been able to kind of just turn my brain off and enjoy what Iโ€™m reading for the most part, with maybe one or two lookups a page at most.

Word of the Day: ่ฆชไธ็Ÿฅ(ใŠใ‚„ใ—ใ‚‰ใš) - wisdom tooth; not knowing who your parents are. The wisdom tooth definition seems to come from the fact that your wisdom teeth donโ€™t typically sprout until you leave home and become independent.

Today I learned that googling Japanese words youโ€™ve never seen before isnโ€™t always the best of ideas.

Words found in a tree stump

็‹‚ๅ–œใ€Œใใ‚‡ใ†ใใ€ใƒผ Wild joy; ecstasy
ๅๅ™จใ€Œใ‚ใ„ใใ€ใƒผ Famous/excellent utensil; famed musical instrument (like a Stradivarius)

I was not prepared for the Google search of this word, though I should have guessed with โ€œDistinguished Receptacleโ€ being a potential meaning :rofl:
It has a vulgar meaning which apparently seems to be the one favoured by Google (of course):

An excellent/amazing vagina
Google brings up a lot of adverts for those fake rubber hip-area products that are favoured by people needing the bonk stick.

Probably some spoilers, but this is a historic novel, so can spoilers really exist for things that have (for the most part) actually happened :thinking:

Read 4 pages from ใ‚ˆใคใฐใจ today! I went from โ€œomg should I just give upโ€ to โ€œomg how do I understand everything.โ€ I think itโ€™s so interesting that this manga goes from easy to intermediate to easy and back. Itโ€™s almost fun (except when I have to read tooo many dialogues).

I use mokuro for definition and all that, but I found the vocab sheet today and Iโ€™ve been referring to that. All these resources are too good, makes learning so much more easier :man_bowing:t5:

I see so many people listing out words and I want to try doing that from today! I think itโ€™ll help with remembering too.

words I added to Bunpro SRS (not much today)
  • ๆจใฆใ‚‹ - to throw away, to cast away, to dump, to discard
  • ๅผ•ใฃ่ถŠใ™ - to move (house), to change residence
