Warning: post may contain traces of humble bragging (sorry - I tried to delete all contaminated paragraphs from my draft, but I might have missed some occurrences)
This is @Sinyaven’s self-congratulatory thread. Others are also welcome to congratulate me
I just had my final WK lesson (until the devious こういち decides to add new items), so all I have left to do on WK is to keep on reviewing to prevent forgetting anything. Which I have already failed to accomplish, considering my disastrous burn rate.
If someone could post a cute anime gif as a reward, that would be great!
Around 20% of my urge to continue WK stemmed from my wish to deepen my knowledge of the lore around Charlie Sheen, Mrs. Chou, こういち and all the others (Spoiler: Hard Gay dies in the final level). However, a few weeks ago I additionally found another reason for my WK journey when I bought an untranslated adult visual novel. It is nice to know that ~600 hours of reading about geoducks, boob graves and Chester the molester also had a neat little side effect: I can read the VN at a reasonable speed, and even though I’m lazy and jump over Kanji that I don’t remember immediately, I get the gist of everything they say (I guess it is one of the simpler VNs, but something tells me that it is not targeted towards kids).
Now that I think about it ‒ this is not even the first application of my new knowledge. Several months ago, I was able to follow the instructions of a tutorial in an adult VR game thanks to Wani Kani! (I’m starting to see a pattern; now I’m wondering if the ability to read Japanese can also be applied in non-lewd scenarios)
My WK journey (400 days):
A: The moment I started using scripts
B: The moment I started abusing the ignore script
C: The moment I realized that the fast levels are too fast for me
D: Here I got sick for nearly a month, dropped my Anki reviews and put Satori Reader on hold, but at least I managed to keep doing WK
E: The moment I started using the reorder script
F: Hard Gay’s tragic death on a water slide
I learned from the Oscars that you should recite everybody that helped you in any way to reach your goal, even if it bores everyone to death, so here goes:
Thanks to Wani Kani!
Thanks to the Wani Kani community!
Thanks to the Human Japanese textbook apps!
Thanks to Satori Reader!
Thanks to the Ultimate Timeline script!
Thanks to the Keisei Semantic-Phonetic Composition script!
Thanks to the Close But No Cigar script!
Thanks to the Override script!
Thanks to the Mistake Delay script!
Thanks to the Leech script, which I used to see my number of leeches and do nothing about them.
Finally, I wanted to say:
