meh. sorry all, I’ll have to figure out the hiding thing.
even more edit: this is why copy-paste rules over typing. a silly slash backslash issue. hmpf. sorry folks.
more off topic
fair enough. I just thought the concept might inspire someone. it would inspire me, only my grammar level is far too sub-zero to make sense. maybe a blog type online book somewhere on tofugu might be an option, with links to all the online resources mentioned, or similar. with publisher permissions, of course
anyway I totally see your point re. time investment vs economic aspects and interest in outcome.
Indeed, I know (and read) some Mangajin, and I was super disappointed to find out it was discontinued a long time ago. Japanese the Manga Way is the only grammar book I own. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do the trick for me - whatever I read is fun and makes sense, but doesn’t stick very well. For reasons I can’t quite figure out. Linking corresponding grammar aspects to one single book therefore seemed more appealing to me, rather than linking several manga excerpts to a particular grammar aspect. kind of full immersion grammar learning from scratch. which is what I’m now trying to achieve by lurking in here.
The problem might be a wanikani specific one, though - having down a lot of vocab but building phrases like Tarzan…
so in a nutshell, I agree, it’s probably not worth the time and effort. yet, maybe someone with time on their hands feels like giving it a shot anyway.
thanks for the detailed reply and sharing your point of view!
