>I'm completely new, where do I start?

Learn the Kana. Start with Hiragana and then move on to Katakana. Yes, you need both, and yes stroke order is important. Use Realkana or Kana Invaders for spaced repetition. Alternatively, you can use the Anki deck, but I'd recommend the first two. Tae Kim has a Kana diagram on his website, and you can use KanjiVG for pretty much any character.

>Alright, I know the Kana. Now what?

You have to learn vocabulary and grammar in order to speak and understand the language. Studying both simultaneously will get you understanding things faster. Vocabulary can be learned through just studying words, although some people like studying kanji on their own too. There are grammar guides such as Tae Kim that can get you started quickly, but they won't have everything you need so consult multiple sources as you go.

>Well this is great and everything, but I still need more help

Ask in this thread.

for more information, this is standard linguistic notation for giving examples of unnatural speech.

* is prefixed before a word or sentence to indicate that it is unacceptable (grammatically incorrect)

?? is prefixed before a word or sentence to indicate that it is either ambiguous, highly context dependent, unknown, or marginally acceptable (not natural sounding, but not necessarily 'wrong') (Depending on what the point of the example is. The actual text preceding the example should make it clear which is meant)

Correct samples are unmarked.

/ is used to compare multiple options of interest in one line, instead of having one line that says

>僕はけがでだ

and one that says

>??僕はけがØ

The 九 has nothing to do with the meaning; this Kanji is a phonosemantic compound. 日 indicates meaning and 九 indicates pronunciation (in Chinese, so they indicate on-readings). So you should break it down as "means something related to 日; sounds something like 九 (for on-readings)"

What's the benefit of speaking a non-Aryan language? At least with Indo-European languages, you have superior grammar and lexicon. Japanese is directly based on Chinese and other simplistic logographic languages of east Asia.

I'd say go learn Sanskrit. It's one of the most impressive and fundamental Indo-European languages, and allows you to read the Veda's naturally.

The general policy has historically been that if you post a translation request, anons in the thread will either translate it for you or tell you to fuck off as they see fit. It usually depends on why you're asking, if you tried to translate it yourself because you're learning, how hard it is, if you're spamming or acting entitled, the temperature outside and the current exchange rate between ETH and Argentinian pesos. If you want to try your luck here then go ahead; there probably isn't anyone still here that knows much Japanese. If you're interested in trying it on another site then check 8chan/v/ and the webring. There's also 4/jp/'s DJTs. I have no confidence in their ability to grasp Japanese nor contribute positively to a conversation, but on the bright side there's literally no way your request could make the thread any worse than it already is.

There's also this dead thread on anon.cafe/lang/, give it a try too, I guess https://anon.cafe/lang/res/71.html

>sometimes, plurals

That's almost all the time, and, if you want to get technical, some people would say literally all the time in a grammatical sense. This isn't rare for languages and it's why counters exist; it doesn't create any ambiguity because deixis adjectives and quantifiers every, as do particles.

Never ceases to confuse me which random features of a foreign language people pick out to determine if it's better or worse than English.

Punctuation is mostly optional. I rarelly see any 「、」 on mangas and other texts.

I also forgot to mention spaces, it also is optional and is mostly ignored even when lots of text is in ひらがな.

I'm complaining about japanese, but it's most for venting, I'm still going to study it.

>if it's better or worse than English.

English isn't my first language either, it's portuguese and by itself it is harder than english, because of a fuckton of special cases with stuff like a/à/ha, ss/ç/s and u/ü(not used much)…

The fact that you can't immediately guess the meaning of most Kanji from their radicals doesn't matter because that's not what's good about them.

Chinese is a legitimately ugly and simplistic language. I have no idea how German came to have a reputation for sounding harsh when Chinese exists and sounds like a retard screaming a bunch of syllables that start with harsh consonants and putting a different weird vocal wiggle on them each time.

And writing in all Hanzi is awful too. The beautiful thing about Kanji-kana majiribun is the way it naturally aligns semantic and visual density and easily separates words without physically spacing them. Writing in all Hanzi is just a cluttered ugly mess that had all the purported downsides of Kanji without any of the benefits.

I legitimately hate seeing or hearing Chinese.

Not to mention that despite having a continuous 3000 year history it has the same or less complexity and expressiveness as your average pidgin or creole that was created 200 years ago by people who resorted to caveman speak because they couldn't understand each other.

I want to start with some basic stuff, any simple retro games I can use to gauge my progress? Like something on the famicom or super famicom?

First I'm supposed to start with hiragana, then katakana and then finally kanji right?

No. Kanji are a long term thing that you should do while learning vocabulary and grammar; you can't learn "the Kanji" the way you can hiragana, katakana, or the alphabet.

After katakana, start studying grammar and vocabulary, and you can choose to either start Kanji at the same time or wait until you've learned more vocabulary.

Also, just so it's clear, hiragana and katakana are an introductory thing you should be trying to get over with as soon as possible; spend a maximum of two weeks on them together before moving on. If you don't have them entirely down by that time it's fine, just review them as needed.

I literally can't hear the difference between Z and S sounds. I am also struggling with intonation.

Is this a problem everyone has or is it just because my native language uses neither that makes it hard?

This, how well you define the difference between sounds is dictated by your native language to a great extent. Many native English speakers can differentiate between an unaspirated P and B sounds for example. Your

Not with s and z specifically, but almost everybody will have trouble with some sounds when leaning a new language, and with Japanese specifically intonation is a common problem. And yes, these problems are conditioned by the languages you already speak, especially your native language. I'd be interested to know what languages it is that you speak, because I'm not familiar with any that don't use /s/ nor /z/.

Ah. Looking into Swedish phonology, it seems that it never contrasts voicing in fricatives at all, and that all fricatives are always phonetically voiceless. Since /s/ and /z/ are the only fricatives in native words that contrast voicing, it makes since that they would cause you the most trouble.

can someone pls recommend tell me what anime is like the following (I think they're centered on gag/comedy and harem, minor ecchi but not entirely sure how they should be categorized)

I'm starved for anime I actually have interest in to learn jap and I loved these

boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai

to love-ru

eromanga-sensei

kore wa zombie desu ka

hajimete no gal

konosuba

monster musume no iru nichijou

rosario to vampire (2nd season only)

prison school (not harem nor actual ecchi but extremely good)

Boku no Kanojo ga Majime Sugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken (lol - but yes)

For all I know the above is an unspeakable load of shit that I should get crucified for, but conversely I find commonly recommended shit unbearable. In line with this, I barely understand japanese but managed to read 15 konosuba volumes and found it irredeemable shit at times (extremely unstable/uncanny balance between self-awareness and not, between gag and serious), yet I love the anime which I think turned up the gag factor to 200%. Was I just unable to read out the mood in text?

I tried using mal or some shit before to find related anime but ended up with something completely irrelevant, so I'm hoping there's someone who happens to have similar taste as me

btw kore wa zombie second season surprised even me in how well it managed the harem aspect without somehow feeling unnatural

Hey friend. I've accidentally noticed this thread here. You know, when I was learning English I read many blogs in this language. They definitely helped me to improve my skills and enrich my vocabulary. Take a look at an article about idioms and phrases in English https://preply.com/en/blog/2020/06/06/let-s-dance-10-interesting-expressions-in-english-that-relate-to-dance/ I was reading. So, maybe it's a good idea to search for interesting and simple Japanese blogs?

to memorize a large amount of new vocabulary very quickly

make a bunch of flashcards for the words that you are working on

shuffle them and deal them out in some sort of organized fashion

for each hand of flashcards, aim for a 50% recall rate, not 100%

shuffle the ones that you remembered back into the deck

retain the difficult ones in your hand

deal more cards to fill up your hand again

continue this pattern until the language is learned

i learned this from a very small language book

i think it is called "How to Learn Any Language"

i have lost the book, unfortunately

but it was written by a WWII military translator

and despite its very short length

it is the best literature available on the subject
