maybe I will write one, just because of this.
Oh snap - This is third place I’ve mentioned it now but … 365 DAY REVIEW STREAK !
ima catch up to you
FYI, I was wondering if there might be enough interest to do a book club of the 9th volume of the 3月のライオン manga-- I’m pretty sure the anime ends in the middle of that volume, so it would be half familiar, half new. Would you be interested? I’m in a book club now, so it wouldn’t be until the Fall.
Update: I did start a ３月のライオン bookclub, starting from the 1st volume.
Where can you see your steak data?
I use a script ! do you know about scripts?
If not, Chapter 7 of My Journey of 368 days (+ The Ultimate Guide for WK 📖 ) by the wonderful and talented @jprspereira
If you do know about scripts - then it is on the Wanikani heatmap script by the talented and wonderful @Kumirei (or at least that’s where I have it).
No, I know nothing about scripts. Now I have to decide whether to ignore their existence to avoid another obsession.
I just leveled up to 4 after a bit more than a month! I am super excited and loving the journey thus far, trying to take it at my own pace and focus on learning and not being in a rush.
Awesome, I haven’t tried playing shougi yet! Yes, it’s a great exploration of those themes. I also laughed a little when I learned 負ける and a few other vocab words here in Wanikani.
Since you appreciate the way Sangatsu no Lion tackles depression and trauma, I would highly recommend Fruits Basket (the new 2019 reboot) if you haven’t seen it. It’s actually a pretty complex character study (tiny bit of fantasy) about the effects of emotional trauma (despite the fact that it is wrapped in a shoujo package). And it also depicts how important and life-changing hope and kindness can be. It has been my favorite manga (and now anime with the reboot telling the complete story) for over 15 years.
I’d definitely be interested! The timeframe isn’t an issue for me as I’m currently reading the first volume of Fruits Basket with the Beginner Book Club and I’m totally slacking on that! It is harder for me to find quiet time to study grammar (so I can actually retain it) than kanji, so it takes me quite a bit longer to read.
That’s awesome! I’m still waiting for the day I manage to get 100% on a big review session like that, I always manage to forget or mess up at least one item
Ooh, I will definitely check it out. Where is the fruits basket anime available?
Also, I just got my set of 3月のライオン man’s books yesterday! Volume 20 is where the story really starts to progress after the anime. I’ve already started an anki deck for the first chapter…
Hi all, this is one of my first posts so I’m still figuring this UI out;
I just Mastered my first radical, haha!
It was the radical for ‘prison’. I got so excited even before I hit enter! The same sessions I mastered 18 more radicals, bringing it to a total of 19.
This motivates me tremendously to keep grinding away on WaniKani.
Great, let’s pick a start date for the 3月のライオン book club, and I’ll start advertising it in the book club thread! People in my current book club have said that it really helps to pre-study the vocabulary, so I’ll keep adding to my anki deck, and share that. I’m pretty good at grammar, so I can support that, too. I’m only level 20 on Wanikani but I studied Japanese formally for 5 years, so my grammar is way ahead of my vocabulary.
I hit 1000 burned
progressing slowly but it’s still progress :>
same! I have managed to hit 100% before, but for both my sessions in the same day - that was weird.
For the sub, Fruits Basket is currently halfway through the second season on Crunchyroll (it just started the second cour and will air every Monday through September-ish). CR also has the entire first season sub available.
For the dub, the first season is available on Hulu and most of the second season is available as a SimulDub on Funimation. The currently airing dub episodes have been delayed due to COVID complications, so the dub is five episodes behind (Ep 9 will air Monday vs Ep 14 of the sub).
For this anime, either option is excellent IMO. It is a bit of a slow burn, but it’s worth it. I hope you like it!
As for 3月のライオン, I actually haven’t read very far past that part of the manga yet!
Great! Next time I find time to watch, I’ll check it out! I do “laundranime,” which means I watch anime while folding laundry. My husband tries not to make fun of me, but only because he hates folding laundry.
Are you already reading the 3月のライオン manga? I’m finding the Kanji very challenging. They often use alternate kanji, even for vocabulary I know–like 堕ちるinstead of 落ちる. I keep my giant kanji dictionary next to me.
