Total: 1514 pages read, 8486 pages to go.

  • ใ†ใŸใ‚ใ‚Œใ‚‹ใ‚‚ใฎ

Extra-content pages increase. Expecting to know secrets of MC now.

  • ใตใ—ใŽใฎๅ›ฝใฎใƒใƒผใƒ‰ Vol.8 Ch.36-40 + extra (whole volume)
Words of the day
  • ใ‹ใ„ใคใพใ‚“ใง = summing up. From the verb ๆŽป(ใ‹)ใ„ๆ‘˜(ใคใพ)ใ‚€.
  • ใŒใ‚‰ใ‚“ใจ(.) = (on-mim) empty; deserted
  • ใ‚บใƒฉใ‹ใ‚‹(.) = to run away; to flee
  • ใ“ใ˜้–‹(ใ‚)ใ‘ใ‚‹ = to wrench open = ๆŠ‰(ใ“)ใ˜้–‹(ใ‚)ใ‘ใ‚‹
  • ใผใŸ้ค…(ใ‚‚ใก) = adzuki bean covered mochi = ็‰กไธน้ค…(ใผใŸใ‚‚ใก). Seems to be similar to ใŠ่ฉ(ใฏใŽ).
  • ๆ™ดใ€…(ใฏใ‚Œใฐใ‚Œ) = cheerful. As expected, ใ‚Œ can be collapsed to Kanji.
  • ็ˆช็ ”(ใคใ‚ใจ)ใŽ = claw sharping; scratching nails on a post
  • ๆŠ˜(ใŠ)ใ‚Šๅ…ฅ(ใ„)ใฃใฆ = earnestly (beg for)
  • ๅฟƒ(ใ“ใ“ใ‚)ใ‚†ใใพใง = to oneโ€™s heartโ€™s content
  • ๅพ’ๅŠด(ใจใ‚ใ†) = fruitless efforts
  • ๅค‰(ใ‹)ใ‚ใ‚Š่€…(ใ‚‚ใฎ) = an oddball. Not yet in the past as ๅค‰(ใ‹)ใ‚ใฃใŸ?
  • ๅ„ฒ(ใ‚‚ใ†)ใ‘็‰ฉ(ใ‚‚ใฎ) = a godsend; an unexpected benefit
  • ๆ™ด(ใฏ)ใ‚Œ็€(ใŽ) = oneโ€™s best clothes
  • ้ฆญ่€…(ใŽใ‚‡ใ—ใ‚ƒ) = postilion; coachman; horse cart driver = ๅพก่€…(ใŽใ‚‡ใ—ใ‚ƒ). The Kanji ้ฆญ(ใŽใ‚‡) seems to be replaceable with ๅพก(ใŽใ‚‡).
  • ๆตชๆผซ(ใ‚ใ†ใพใ‚“) = romance; romantism; great undertaking = ใƒญใƒžใƒณ
  • ๅฐ็ฑ (ใ„ใ‚“ใ‚ใ†) = pill box. Second Kanji is ็ฑ (ใ‹ใ”) (= basket).
  • ้‡‘็ฎ”(ใใ‚“ใฑใ) = gold foil; gold leaf. ็ฎ”(ใฏใ) itself is foil, e.g. ใ‚ขใƒซใƒŸ็ฎ”(ใฏใ).
  • ็ฟ’(ใชใ‚‰)ใ‚ใ— = customary practice = ใ—ใใŸใ‚Š
  • ่ฆชๅญ่กŒ(ใŠใ‚„ใ“ใ†ใ“ใ†) = filial piety
  • ๆŸ”ๅ’Œ(ใซใ‚…ใ†ใ‚) = gentle; tender. I thought of ใ‚ธใƒฅใ‚ฆ first, as in ๆŸ”้“(ใ˜ใ‚…ใ†ใฉใ†).
  • ๆป…็›ธ(ใ‚ใฃใใ†)ใ‚‚ใชใ„ = thatโ€™s out of question; absurd / donโ€™t mention it = ใจใ‚“ใงใ‚‚ใชใ„.
  • ไธ้“ๅพณ(ใตใฉใ†ใจใ) = impropriety; immorality
  • ๅ‹˜ๅฝ“(ใ‹ใ‚“ใฉใ†) = disowning. Yeah, it sounds like ๆ„Ÿๅ‹•(ใ‹ใ‚“ใฉใ†) (= being moved emotionally).
  • ๆฐธไน…(ใจใ“ใ—ใˆ) = eternity. Has Furigana, indicating the reading (besides ใˆใ„ใใ‚…ใ† and ใจใ‚). Also, dedicated JJ dictionary entry. I might have seen both readings somewhere before, ใจใ“ใจใ‚“ and ใ„ใซใ—ใˆ perhaps.
  • ็›ฎๆ˜Ÿ(ใ‚ใผใ—) = objective; goal. Also on a map in context. In contrast, ๅ›ณๆ˜Ÿ(ใšใผใ—) would also be right on the mark.
  • ้ก่กŒ(ใใ“ใ†) = going upstream; sailing against the current. Has Furigana. First Kanji is ้ก(ใ•ใ‹ใฎใผ)ใ‚‹.
  • ๅœŸ็Ÿณๆต(ใฉใ›ใใ‚Šใ‚…ใ†) = landslide; avalanche. Last two Kanji switched is ๆต็Ÿณ(ใ•ใ™ใŒ).
  • ่ฝ็Ÿณ(ใ‚‰ใใ›ใ) = rockslide
  • ็ฏ ็ช(ใ—ใฎใค)ใ้›จ(ใ‚ใ‚) = a torrential rain. Rain that can pass through a sheet of ็ฏ (ใ—ใฎ) (= bamboo grass). Other readings of the first Kanji include ใ•ใ•, both seen in names.
  • ๅƒ้ณฅ่ถณ(ใกใฉใ‚Šใ‚ใ—) = drunken staggering gait. First two Kanji is ๅƒ้ณฅ(ใกใฉใ‚Š) = plover, a kind of bird.
  • ไธ‡ๅš(ใฐใ‚“ใฑใ) = international exposition; world fair = ไธ‡ๅ›ฝๅš่ฆงไผš(ใฐใ‚“ใ“ใใฏใใ‚‰ใ‚“ใ‹ใ„)
  • ๅคง้“่Šธ(ใ ใ„ใฉใ†ใ’ใ„) = street performance
  • ่กๆ’ƒ(ใ—ใ‚‡ใ†ใ’ใ) = impact, can be emotionally too (being moved emotionally)
  • ่ƒธ(ใ‚€ใญ)ใ‚’ๆ‰“(ใ†)ใค = to be touching; to be moved emotionally

Winter Challenge Wrap-up

  • 1.7 manga series completed [1]
  • 1 book with audiobook, read thoroughly [2]
  • VN almost ended of 1 series, perhaps. [3]

To me, I made it to the Challenge everyday to make sure I make a progress in collecting vocabularies and reading sentences carefully (where I canโ€™t yet do well with listening). Also, I need a place to write down vocabularies. Keeping vocabularies as original as much as appropriate, but meanings and interpretations are of my own.

Habit making first, I may say. I donโ€™t really dump difficulty to this one, because not really my focus, so not a place to put too excessive energy. But I learnt a lot of vocabularies, remembering many of them too.

I thank you @windupbird for hosting this Every Day challenge as always. (1 ยฝ years already?) Also, @Redglare for starting the first.

Well, first month went okayish until it didnโ€™t but second month was not really good but overall still better than usual. But itโ€™s always like that for me haha. Though I think it definitely helped me read more. Iโ€™ll try to continue pushing myself more.

I did finish Spirit Circle but still not Yoichi lol but Iโ€™m close.
46/59 days, hoping to get more in the next challenge :v:

I finished Tsugumomo vol.6 and started Little Busters End of Refrain vol.1. The manga is harder than expected, that of course only means that I will need to get used to the difficulty. Having watched the Little Busters anime I already know the story but itโ€™s still interesting reading the manga.

I worked overtime and then the club met and I hadnโ€™t finished the reading (1st 3 chapters) on time :face_with_peeking_eye:. It was a fun discussion though and half of the participants like me had only finished the 1st chapter. We talked for a long time.

Iโ€™m continuing the challenge without break as usual!

  • ใ‚ขใ‚ฟใƒƒใ‚ฏ!! vol 4. The captain of the first school they face is the libero?? Thatโ€™s illegal?? Unless the rules changed after 2007. I was thinking, โ€œGranted, the libero can be the club captain, they just canโ€™t be the team captain, and while most teams wonโ€™t bother with having two captains, that doesnโ€™t mean that none do,โ€ but! His uniformโ€™s got the captainโ€™s mark under the number! He is absolutely the team captain, as I suspected by their calling him โ€œใ‚ญใƒฃใƒ—ใƒ†ใƒณโ€! But this series is also saying that โ€œsuper aceโ€ is an alternate name for the right wing spiker/opposite hitter, so, sure, letโ€™s roll with it. I doubt itโ€™ll clear anything up regarding whether the libero used to able to be the team captain, but I think the next v-ball series I read will be Libero Revolutionโ€ฆ

First time I've seen the furigana "underneath" the text:

Though not the first time Iโ€™ve seen furigana used to show meaning rather than what was actually saidโ€”that was in parentheses too, though still โ€œaboveโ€ the text.

And then thereโ€™s this one where itโ€™s got both:

(He says โ€œF3,โ€ meaning โ€œFormation 3โ€)

I decided to take a little break from book clubs (Iโ€™ll need to resume tomorrow) and read more of ่ŠฑๆŸใฏๆฏ’. Itโ€™s seeming more adult as I go on - when I started it felt almost like a young adult novel? I think itโ€™s somewhere in between. Not quite YA, but just a little too tropey to feel like itโ€™s totally out of that genre.

Iโ€™m enjoying it either way. Right now itโ€™s getting a little dark, curious to see how far it goes.

edit: oh, also, @omk3 I keep seeing this person on Bookmeter and thinking itโ€™s you but their read books are wrong and their bio also suggests itโ€™s not you :joy:

Played more Steins;Gate again today! I definitely think itโ€™s the hardest thing for me that Iโ€™m reading right now, though I think thatโ€™s mostly because it dips more into areas of vocabulary Iโ€™m not as familiar with than all my mystery nonsense does :laughing: itโ€™s still doable though, just has more of a tendency to slow down from time to time. Not too bad though!

Ha, they even confused me a little! Blue cute jellyfish and some overlap in books. But theyโ€™ve read way more than me and I definitely donโ€™t feel confident enough to leave reviews in Japanese. Thatโ€™s me on Bookmeter, but thereโ€™s no extra info other than what Iโ€™ve been reading, which you all already know :slight_smile:

What chapter are you on? And I agree, I only know a lot of the words because of ้’ๆ˜ฅใƒ–ใ‚ฟ้‡Ž้ƒŽ, because that also delves into quantum mechanics*.

= Japanese
= Japanese and Spanish

For my Spanish reading, according to my kindle, I am currently 29% of the way through Cantoras, so with that plus Sรญ, si es contigo, I read about 1.3 books in Spanish during the challenge. Not bad!

Iโ€™ve been a bit busy with non-Japanese writing projects, so Iโ€™ve fallen a bit behind on my translations, but Iโ€™m working on catching up now. I did finally complete Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestlingโ€™s February 18 show (the translation was long enough, it had to be split into two posts :sweat_smile:), which was nearly as long as the Korakuen show the week before, hence how long it took for me to finish it.

I also just completed the TJPW portion of Keiji Mutohโ€™s retirement show on February 22. Beyond proud of the TJPW women for getting to have a match in the Tokyo Dome :pleading_face:. As Shoko pointed out in her comments afterward, TJPW started as a dark match at a DDT show at Ryogoku Kokugikan (and eventually were able to run that venue on their own), and now theyโ€™ve gotten far enough to have an under match at a Pro Wrestling NOAH show at the Tokyo Dome, so TJPW one day running a Tokyo Dome show all by themselves doesnโ€™t feel entirely out of the questionโ€ฆ

Hereโ€™s a photo of Shoko Nakajima, Yuka Sakazaki, Miyu Yamashita, and Rika Tatsumi after their match.

NOAH fans get spoiled by having transcripts of all the post-match comments up for free on the NOAH site. Sadly, TJPW doesnโ€™t do the same for their shows, so I have to pay for access to shuproโ€™s mobile site to get transcriptions the rest of the time.

I also put together a Notion account, including compiling my regular book reading progress and goals (not a lot of activity on that page :sweat_smile:), and a page for study and translation resources, which reflects a lot more of my efforts.

By my own count, I completed 11 translations during this challenge!

As usual, Iโ€™ll be shifting gears and focusing on listening during the off-month, though Iโ€™ll be keeping up with my translations and my normal wrestling watching habits, both of which are a combination of reading and listening practice. So I guess Iโ€™ll see some of you over in the listen every day challenge?
