This is my first challenge to join on Wanikani, so I’m looking forward to it. I’d like to start with something really simple, so I’m going to read a kid’s magazine, called ちゃお.

Hi! Thanks @windupbird for setting up this challenge, it’s promising to be really fun! I’ve never participated in challenges like this, but always thought that I was missing out on the collective spirit and the extra motivation from external accountability. Seeing how welcoming and supportive WK community is, I decided that this is a perfect opportunity to give it a try! :slight_smile:

I still have very little idea how this whole challenge thing works, so I guess I’ll look at what everyone else is doing and try to follow suit. Here’s my calendar (thanks to whoever came up with it!):

Goals and books

I don’t have any specific reading goals right now, but I’m currently at the point where I understand most of the basic grammar and quite a bit of Kanji, but lack a lot of simple vocabulary, and find reading to require quite a lot of effort. So my plan is to focus on just reading whatever I feel like – to get into the habit. Hopefully, over time, as I get more reading experience, it will become less and less laborious. I also hope to somehow maintain the balance between effort and fun, so that I habitualize it rather than burn out, even though I don’t have a solid plan for this last part :sweat_smile:

Here are a few things that I’ve been reading lately, so I’ll probably be mostly continuing with these:

  • よつばと! – I started it from scratch 2-3 times already and have read through about half of the first volume so far, but even though it’s probably the easiest entry on my list (at least, for me), and it’s been quite fun to read, somehow I can’t get through with it (and I have all 15 volumes sitting on the shelf waiting…) Let’s see how it goes this time around.
  • 五等分の花嫁 – Much harder for me than よつば, but I enjoy it quite a lot. I’m currently on the second volume, and waiting to get to the part of the story not covered by the anime with both excitement and dread (as in, will I still be able to follow it without knowing what is supposed to happen?)
  • 時をかける少女 – I tried it a few months ago, and it was a bit hard, but within reason. I like the story (which I vaguely remember from the anime), so maybe I’ll push through this time.
  • 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 – Given its writing style, this one is very hard for me right now, but I occasionally attempt to read it “immersion-style”, i.e. without looking anything up, just trying to absorb as much as I can – which is to say, not that much :persevere:

I also have a bunch of other books and manga, some of them perhaps more appropriate for my level, and some completely out of reach (e.g. 〈物語〉シリーズ), so I might add more as time goes.

From a quick glance at the previous threads, it seems like a lot of people tend to post daily updates as well as maintaining their summary post. So, a question for those of you who have tried it before: in what ways do you find daily updates help you (and/or others) – psychologically or otherwise? I’m still a bit uncertain about doing them myself (since I’m a bit too wordy, but not at all chatty, if this makes any sense), so I’d be happy to get some insight into why people like doing them. Thanks!

Welcome! :durtle_hello:

Why I like doing daily updates:

  • Can document what I’ve read that day. (I tend to jump between different books or manga instead of reading through one thing before starting another thing.)

  • Can document how much I’ve read. I mostly read ebooks, so I write the amount in percentage.

  • Can write about how it went, whether it was a good/bad day for reading, busy or not so busy, etc.

  • I can know for sure that I actually did read that day and not misremember or anything. I’m terrible at keeping track of time. Time blind kinda, if that makes sense xD

  • Share words I’ve learned, fun facts, what I thought about a book, etc.

  • Can go through the posts later to figure out how long I’ve spent reading a particular book (even if I read other stuff in-between).

And it’s fun to read other people’s updates too! :3
Especially when they share photos of cute animals :eyes: :raccoon: There was plenty of cute tanuki in the previous thread, it kind of became our mascot, hehe.

Hello! This is one of my first posts on the forums, despite being a long-time lurker. I’m excited to do this challenge! I’ve been reading the second volume of a light novel series (ティアムーン帝国物語) since August, and I could use the consistency. I’m a slow reader (about 12.5 pages/hour) but it’s so fun that I really don’t mind! (Edit: I just measured my reading speed for the third volume of the light novel series that I’m reading, and since starting the challenge, I’m now at about 18 pages/hour!!)

  • 1st: I spent 37 minutes reading 僕らはみんな河合荘. I started by rereading pages 9 and 10, to verify how much I remembered from last time and then read 3 more pages. I’m currently at chapter 1, page 13/15.

  • 2nd: I decided it was a good moment to catch up with the ABBC. I reread the first half and then read the second half of 三ツ星カラーズ chapter 4. It took me exactly 30 minutes. I learnt about the use of やがる. Now I’m completely caught up. Next week, I’ll start reading chapter 5.
    Later during the day, I discovered that chapter 1 of おじさまと猫 is available for free (for a limited time) on BookWalker. I read 5 chapters / 24 pages (in 42 minutes). It’s quite simple and extremely cute!

  • 3rd: At first, I wasn’t sure if I should start another manga, but there are still 16 days until the first volume of 地縛少年花子くん expires and I noticed it has furigana over every kanji, so I couldn’t resist. I read 16 pages in 57 minutes.
    I also needed some more of おじさまと猫, so I reread chapter 5 and read chapter 6 and 7. It took me 30 minutes.
    Hopefully, I can finish them both in time.

  • 4th: I felt like reading some more of 地縛少年花子くん and I got really into it. I read pages 16-39 and spent 1h46min doing it. Even though I’ve already seen the anime, so I know what’s going to happen, reading the manga is a lot of fun. BBC’s vocabulary list is quite useful. Thanks to it, I can read faster than I would normally do. Having said that, the list isn’t complete, so I added more words to it. Maybe someone will use it later on.

  • 5th: I managed to finish the first chapter of 地縛少年花子くん. I read pages 40-55. In total, I was reading for 1h 36min. There were many words I didn’t know and didn’t find on the vocabulary list, but thanks to furigana I was able to figure out what the characters were saying. I’m enjoying the manga more than I thought I would.

First off, I definitely agree with everything @Redglare said! I think doing the daily posts has helped me maintain accountability too, because it’s an easy way to show that I’ve read that day and track what I’ve read (obviously, the summary post does that as well, but it feels less “visible” to others since it’s just editing a previous post vs. a brand new post).

I also just enjoy sharing things that are cute or that made me laugh or fun new words I learned or whatever I may or may not have been responsible for bringing the tanuki into the last thread :eyes: so for me, it can be fun and motivating to share with the group via daily posts. I think it’s nice to be able to see what people are up to each day, and I think it adds to the team spirit feeling as well ^^ I know I’ve also gotten good ideas for additional things to read/check out from reading other people’s update posts in previous threads.

One thing I will say about my experience doing daily posts is that it can become a double-edged sword of sorts - doing daily posts does add more time to the overall process (especially if you’re me and you spend hours writing posts as a general rule), and that can make it feel a bit burdensome sometimes. I’m going to keep doing daily posts this challenge, because I do have fun sharing, but I’m going to try not to pressure myself to post super detailed updates all the time, if I’m tired and don’t feel like it - some people’s update posts are much more simple than mine have historically been, and that’s totally fine as well.

We may potentially end up overlapping on よつばと!then at some point during this challenge if you are also close to the beginning of the series - I look forward to seeing your updates if you decide to read through vol.2 onwards!

I may not have much time to read since I’ll have classes soon, but I’d still like to try something like this. So, I’ll keep the bar low in terms of what counts as reading. Making updates with what I’ve read sounds pretty interesting as well.
I think I’ll mainly be reading from video games and Naruto. I come across a lot of Japanese players in Monster Hunter Rise, and it’s been pretty fun trying to read their names and shoutouts.

Things I currently plan to read/am reading:
  • 呪術廻戦- the first 8 volumes of this are free on bookwalker until 6th Jan and I’m currently at the start of vol 3 so I’m guessing my first week or so will be taken up with this!
  • 5分後に意外な結末(赤い悪夢) - I’m 2 short stories into this collection. They are pretty light and fun reads.
  • book club things (kikis, haikyuu, yotsuba) I probably won’t track these too much here
  • a novel! I really want to read another novel during this challenge but I will use the first week of reading 呪術廻戦 to decide which one. It might be ハイ☆スピード! (which @windupbird made sound very fun and cute in the first challenge). Update I picked one! I’m reading 鏡の孤城 :slight_smile:
  • I’ve also been playing quite a few games in japanese (ace attorney, tokimeki memorial girls side 4 - so it’s possible I will dip back into those at times.

Manga
  • 呪術廻戦5-8

I would like to do a bit better at doing if not daily, then regular updates this time around as I think it does make a big difference to my motivation when I do so, although the time taken is a trade off as others have mentioned. I’m going to try to use this challenge to try to push myself forward to read some more challenging things (prose is hard, no fun pictures :sob:) but keep to my ‘if I’m not having fun then I’m dropping it’ rule :slight_smile:

After last year trying many methods of learning vocab, I found out that just looking up everything you don’t know/you’re not certain of is the best way (for me). Also reading more in stead of SRS-ing every word you come across is ultimately what made my time reading significantly more enjoyable!

When you look up words multiple times, your brain will make the connection between the word and the meaning over time. If you don’t see a word enough for it to stick, then it was not important enough for you to learn it

That’s my unasked advice for you ;D I will look forward to your posts and progress over the months ^^
