Let’s Up Our Japanese Reading Comprehension

So with the JLPT getting too close for comfort, I realized that I need to get used to reading huge blocks of Japanese text quickly. It’s something I was fairly decent at before, but lack of practice has hurt me. At the same time, I want to learn more about anime and manga.

Solution: Reading Japanese wikipedia entries and Japanese online newspaper entries about anime!

Already I’ve learned that Sakigake!! Otokojuku actually goes from a gag manga to actually being serious with tournaments and what-not, and that its popularity increased upon becoming serious.

Here comes old-fashioned Japanese test. All tests are stupid!

    Ahh, that spirit! That’s Otokojuku!

  2. Hm, I need to try this some day too. I am trying to think of ways to study Japanese after I get back to the states (I am currently in Japan). Since I have all my Japanese credits mostly in and I just need to do my gen eds.

  3. I just looked at ja.wikipedia, and the people who did the ugly episodes of Haibane Renmei* have articles while the people who did the good ones* don’t. Oh well, I’ll take what I can get.
