Even just level 2, I didn’t expect to see the crabigator looking overwhelmed so soon. I’m definitely going to have start managing my apprentice count in a couple levels. Didn’t remember how brutal leveling up is.

Don’t let the lesson count pressure you. Go at the pace that feels natural to you. Every once in a while, you’ll have 0 lessons while you’re waiting for kanji to guru, which at least for me is a nice time to catch a breath and relax a bit.

Getting your nails and wig ready for that ‘Guys, I’ve reached level 60’ post.

My mneumonic For that one is, since that one is intransitive “to be mixed”, imagine you’re getting mixed in a mixing bowl with a giant whisk or spoon or beater or whatever, and you’re screaming “AAAA” as opposed to “EEEE”

Same for あがる あげる, “a” for the angels singing as you rise, and “ge” for “get up there” when you’re trying to raise something

It’s a pain though with every verb

We see something tattooed on a woman’s back at the beach
Mom: “What does that say?”
Me: “I don’t know, it’s in Chinese.”

We’ve had that precise conversation word for word so many times

For transitive/intransitive pairs, so far my mnemonic is working. If I (or someone else, or something else) cause it to happen my action has an EEEeeffect on the object. If it moves itself for the action, then it does it AAAalone without the help of anything else.
