A bit of an update regarding various stuff:
> Deciding to learn Japanese was a really good decision ! Learning kana was a lot of fun and reading and being able to understand a few basic sentences is really rewarding. I now moved on to: 1) Maximising immersion by consuming as much JP media as possible. 2) Starting to acquire vocab with anki decks ! Anki is a godsent piece of free Software that make studying really fun. You can watch/read a quick grammar guide beforehand and jump right into studying sentences. I'm currently studying the [tmw Tango N5 Deck] which is really good for beginners like me. This deck even features voiced readings of the sentences that can be played directly inside Anki. I can't wait to be able to read my first VN directly in Japanese, but that won't be anytime soon as the entrance exams are drawing near thus preventing me to allocate enough of my time to JP studying.
> Speaking of my lack of free time, this is also reflected by the scarce amount of articles and updates on this blog. This is will change as once the exams are over, I will be granted the free time needed develop my ideas and add some stuff in there. Some things I'd like to do :
- Dipping my toes into VN/Anime reviews
- Presenting some pieces of my Black Metal collection
- Posts about some of my DYI projects
- More BMS posting
So yeah, if everything goes accordingly, this place is going to become something interesting !
Officially starting my Japanese learning journey ! ! ! Really excited to be able to read all kinds of light novels, watch JP livestreams (and understand what's going on) and play a bunch of obscure VNs ! I currently am learning kana with the Hiragana pro mobile app and experimenting with watching anime without subtitles. So far it's been really exciting & interesting and exploring the resources available on learnjapanese.moe is a lot of fun ! I'll probably log my progress here.
I stitched up one of my biggest wounds, I have gained ultimate power. Now, whenever I need to I can talk to my journal. Even if the whole world keeps ignoring me and ostracizing me, I have a simple low-tech device capable of filling the void. I can stop my search for the Genshiken, the journal is answer to all.
I entered the computer in 11/05/2020 and left it three months later.
Always remember that the only reason we are playing unpolished shit games like LR2 or beatoraja is that they are free replacements of IIDX. Therefore I will do everything in my power to bring IIDX content (also called "illegal content" by cucks) to these clients.
Discord is fucking cancer. Just the mention of this piece of shit proprietary spyware makes my blood boil. The worst part about it is that whole "discord culture" shit. I'm talking about those so called discord "memes" which are the most unfunny garbage you can find on the modern internet. Every single one of them can be summed up by "ahah you know that moment when [Common situation] happens on discord ?!". Even worse, the fucking youtube thumbnails with the discord messages. Retarded stale shit. So yeah, use Matrix instead kids.
I'm ditching BMS the second that I manage to make Infinitas run on Linux. Tired of playing the same 10 decent charts because the rest of BMS is just stupidly difficult and terribly charted. And don't get me started on the absolute dreadful "music" produced by BMS """"Artists"""" and non-sensical BGAs.
Haruhi Suzumiya is so fucking bad. Stupid setting, stupid unlikable and uninteresting waifu bait characters, stupid unimaginative story. Summary : A team of 4 retards spend 14 episodes trying to entertain a retarded BABY or else the world gets destroyed for some reason. And please stop typing your 2000 words essay on how haruhi is an insightful critique of japanese society you fucking redditor. No moe, no character development, no nothing. The only good thing about the anime is the first ending which is pretty catchy.
