@rikaiwisdom As per the original post, video games totally count in this challenge, so keep on adding these to your posts! Would love to read about the words you learned from FFXIV. When it comes to learning vocabulary from videogames I’m certain I’ll never forget 悲鳴( ひめい; shriek, scream) after watching the FF7 remake in Japanese.
Since we’re already on the topic of videogames, @cineebon, reading about you playing はーとふる彼氏 always brings a smile to my face. I guess I can add this game to my “I want to play this in Japanese one day” list.
Aaand now for my reading update:
The first time I decided to time myself was of course the moment where there was zero dialogue in the book - only long descriptive passages of the interior of a mansion, its’ garden, narrow corridors, the basement etc. Six pages ended up taking 1h and 15 minutes. I took a small break after that. Read 15 pages of 名探偵コナン total in the end though.
Read 12 pages of 名探偵コナン. 96 pages read out of 222. So close to being half way through. Won’t read anything else before I finish this so need to push myself to read 10+ pages every day.
