  1. Tay

    Happy Birthday!

  2. I sort of miss my PSP when I see games like Sword Art Online being made for it. Has anyone played it yet? Also, I'm planning on purchasing a Natsume Rin Nendoroid, I just ordered Kurdryavka Noumi too. I will be stalking some websites for a preorder starting tomorrow.. I don't really have a figure collection as of yet, but this may be the start of it.
  3. Day 22 Update Day 22, right? Think so.. This is the final hours of my spring break week and I can honestly say that is did not feel like a break. Time to review and refresh my plan.. This will be a longer post, so I do apologize ahead of time. Currently, I am at 350 Kanji characters. This time I will state that I am way behind schedule on my original plan. I am fairly disappointed that I could not get near my goal even considering that I am late on providing the update.. The good thing is that the method is effective and I am remembering what I have reviewed and studied. So, here is what
  4. I have too, but the knowledge just wasn't sticking with me. Rosetta stone was throwing too many random phrases and characters in the mix trying to cover everything at once it seemed (Grammar, Characters, Speaking, Reading) which may work for some people but not so much for me.. Nor did I have the motivation that this community has provided. I'm very grateful to be a part of this challenge. I've progressed much more in the past two weeks compared to 2 months with Rosetta Stone.
  5. I would highly recommend reading Tay's latest update to his blog. He has included some good advice about getting back on track and staying focused. But to hear that you are still going at the Kanji is great news. School consumed a lot of my time in the past two weeks and there were days that I could not even study the Kanji. I believe that it is important to set that time of day that you will study and make a habit of doing it. I don't think I could check for errors in your first 100 lines, but I'm looking forward to reading it anyway when you have them complete. That's a good goal to reach fo
  6. Welcome to the group, Kisaragi! I love how you thought out your goal as 100 Kanji in 2 days, new perspectives can give you a boost of motivation. I'll be cheering you on throughout your studies. When learning at a higher pace, reviews can make a very large impact on how well you remember the characters. But if you do ever become stuck throughout your studies, you can be sure the community here will have some great advice too keep you going. Best of luck!
  7. Waking up in the morning is so difficult.. I said that I would wake up in the morning and I still have a lot of trouble with it. (I even have 20 alarms set... Literally) Your posts and updates are always inspiring and supportive. My support goes out to you and all of individuals studying Kanji. I was going to write a longer and in-depth reply but I share the same opinions as Ryoji. The community here is amazing and the support that everyone contributes helps to create a healthy environment for Fuwanovel. I believe that everyone can complete the challenge. Your passion for learning and desir
  8. Wow, there are a lot of good movies listed up here already. I have not seen Hachi but I really need to.. Perhaps I will order it. But yes, Tay, I will agree with you that Shindler's List was a life-changer. Ryoji's movies are very good choices as well. I really enjoyed 5 cm per Second, Makoto Shinkai's works are all very impressive.
  9. Day 12 Update Here is my "Day 12" update. It was supposed to be posted two days ago but I was quite busy. Funny story actually, seeing that I wrote a 10 page essay that was never exactly assigned by mistake and... Anyway! That's another story, here is where I'm at. Ending today, I will be at 250 kanji characters. I'm feeling confident right now in my progress. After studying a new set of Kanji characters, I never quite get them right on the first day. But they work themselves in during the reviews. I must say, the Anki software has been a major asset to my studies. I've purchased the
  10. Much agreed. Studying something you enjoy makes it all worth it. Good job, Ryoji!
  11. This is an interesting thread. I could share some images here, I just took them with my phone. However, I have two desks. (One for my desktop and one for my laptop/schoolwork) I enjoy my main desk since I somehow fit most of the things I need there: Desktop, Blu-ray player, Xbox 360, PS2, Nintendo Wii, Printer, and I just keep my laptop stacked on-top of the printer.
  12. Day 3 Update: Well, I do have to say that it has been an interesting start to these studies. Actually, it's been fairly enjoyable to study the new Kanji. However.. I do realize that I will have to make some revisions. Where I am at currently I feel positive about my studies so far. I have been following my schedule... And then some. I am currently at 125 Kanji, 25 characters off of my original rate of 50/per day. I've watched close to no anime in the past 3 days. Spent no time on visual novels in the past 3 days. Average of 3~4 hours of sleep in the past 3 days. So the result is as
  13. Congratulation Ryoji! After reading through your blog updates, I see that you have made some great progress over the past month. 800 Kanji is the next step. I have complete confidence that you'll hit this and all of the future goals to come, keep it up.
  14. Much agreed, slowing down can help you understand things better. A key factor is that you've missed 0 days. That's dedication, and you'll go much farther with studies everyday. Good job, onward to 1000!
  15. I do have the game. I've only done a few missions as of yet, but it is very enjoyable. So far I have no complaints about it.. Although the permanent death setting is pressuring to consider every move carefully. It's an interesting feature that I have not played with before and I'm determined to beat the game without resetting myself. I'll try to go straight through it.
