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!
