Someone shoot me now...

October 15th, 2007 (10:44 pm)

current mood: amused

So, I finally finished my first run through of all the kanji charas I supposedly need for JLPT2 according to the drill site. Yay! I do need a bit of work on some charas. *sigh* But what was getting to me while I was going through the various chara sets was what was going through my mind! >.<;; Like:

官: 秀麗は官吏になりたい! (Shuurei wants to become a government official!)
恋: 秀麗は恋愛に興味ないの? (Does Shuurei not have any interest in romance?)
腕: 透は料理の腕を振るった (Tohru dd her best at cooking.)
頼: 劉輝は経攸と楸瑛を信頼してます (Ryuuki trusts in Kouyuu and Shuuei)
臓: 妖魔は人間の内臓を食べる (Youma eat human innards.)
林: 林さん! (Lin-san!)
労: 麻衣は労働仕事を担当するナルは頭脳の仕事 (Mai's in charge of physical labour while Naru's in charge of thinking)
緑: 緑陵高校で起こってる怪事件 (The strange incidents that occurred at Ryokuryou HS)
輪: くるまのすけの車輪 (Kurumanosuke's wheel)
論: ナルはいつも論文を書いてます (Naru's always writing research papers)
呼: ナルはPKを使うと呼吸が乱れることがある (When Naru uses his PK, his breathing becomes irregular)
録: 麻衣はマイクを設置して音を録音をしてました (Mai set the mics and recorded the sounds.)
律: 律令 part of Masahiro's spell casting (kyuukyuu jouritsuryou).

Need I go on? :P I suspect I'm seriously sunk. Not WRT the JLPT but my brain is a seriously lost cause. ^^;;

When is Ghost Hound starting? Soon IIRC. I'm looking forward to it starting. Otherwise, there are a number of promising titles this season. Shall see how things go. ^_^

呼: ナルはPKを使うと呼吸が乱れることがある (When Naru uses his PK, his breathing becomes irregular)

Seriously...Naru just gave me my brain back...dont go posting stuff like that now cuz even though thats probably something I should have known my GH addicted brain goes "oh really!!! Moar please!!!" XD!!!

btw what vol is that from??

*laughs* I'll be sure to post more GH stuffs then. :P

Not so much a volume as inference. At the end of the Ebisu (Yoshimi) case, his heart stopped and he stopped breathing entirely, while in the Agawa case... I only remember the CD drama clearly on that one and he was panting and unsteady on his feet. Can't recall the description from the books for that one.

Yes yes more please :D

Ah well since I didnt understand any of the cd drama I missed that. The reason that caught my attn was in the manga/anime even after he blasts the Ebisu, he looks fine but then collapses. Your trans made him seem more "human" I guess. I still hate seeing Lin preform cpr on him in vol 9...

At least you have the imagery to use. XD It might be harder if you didn't.

True... but does *everything* have to go back to an anime/manga?! >.<;

Tell that to your mind. XD I try the same thing to equate things in Hebrew with more real-life situations and it never works. I always end up thinking back to this anime or that manga.


But! I have spread anime love! I gave my Hebrew professor two episodes of Zombie Loan! ^_^

OMG. That sounds really good. I should try to follow in your footsteps.
I'm like waaaay behind on my kanji learning. And everything else for that matter.

^^;; Don't look at me, I'm going to try out reading comp tonight and see how that goes. The study guide has an initial diagnostic test to determine where one's weaknesses lie, so it could be interesting... or not. I took one look at the passages and wondered what I was getting myself into... >.>

But yeah, WRT kanji, I read all this manga and stuff so why not put it to good use? :P

I do this all the time in my English classes. The teacher will be giving the Japanese grammar explanation and some key word will throw my mind to an anime or manga I'm reading (I'm reading way too much manga...). I'm reviewing my level three vocab and kanji right now and it's going pretty well. Of course, I only have to know about 300 kanji I need to know (when I recognize about 500 though over half of those aren't ones I need >__<), 1500 words (I have 1,000 of those down... again, there are words I know outside the list but they don't help me). And basic communicative grammar (that's actually coming along and should be in good shape by the time I hit the test in six and a half weeks).

I'm going to do a practice test Nov. 2.

Yeah, unless you're studying J strictly to take the JLPT, chances are you'll know more things than the test covers. What I want to know is why they make the test exponentially more difficult?! >.<; I wonder how they chose the kanji for the JLPT since the ones they test are different (for the equivalent # of kanji) compared to the kantei test. I might go through the flashcards again later for the jouyou kanji it tests. (Perhaps to kantei L3 or so?)

Ah well, I'll be moving on to grammar and reading comp to see how those are for a bit before *going through* all the kanji again and determining exactly which ones I have trouble with. I always knew when I was in trouble with the flashcards because I didn't get words popping up in my mind and just "looked at the pretty scribble". ^^;;

Good luck with your studies! ^_^

I think the kantei matches up to levels achieved through Japanese schooling, and the jlpt matches up closer to frequency in use for college/business purposes (I've heard that level 1 is chock full of business terminology, useful I suppose only if you're going to be reading a lot of salaryman manga, ne?) I figure that I'm at about 3rd/4th grade elementary school level in terms of kanji knowledge.

*laughs* Nothing like putting some personal insanity in to make studying fun. :P

Will do. I'm thinking about writing up thoughts on this season's anime once Ghost Hound's out. :)
