    Spend money on a good tutor. You can get an apprenticeship for this sort of thing.

        When my cousin was in China a guy was doing backstrokes in the hotel pool and hit his head against the side, drowned and died. The entire time a guard was standing nearby. When asked why he didn't do anything the guard basically said "It's the lifeguard's fault for not being there.".

          he's not wrong. one idiot attempting to save a drowning idiot would lead to two drowning idiots.

          Wouldn't it be better to start with anything from Gen V and higher since it has hiragana with furigana

          In China, you're responsible for someone's medical bills if you save their life.

      you frickers are hypocrites
      you despise and revile ESLs yet you see no problem with spewing your JSLs verbal diarrhea.

      >too much kana
      Can confirm that this is definitely a problem with Pokemon. I thought it would be an easy place to practice, so I tried doing Pocket Monsters Green, but it's actually a pain in the ass because there's no kanji. Also, at least in the early games, you'll almost never be able to see a whole sentence at once.
      In some ways, it's easy, but in others it's a much bigger pain in the ass than using a more modern visual novel or something like that.

      >Can confirm that this is definitely a problem with Pokemon
      skill issue. kanasoup games have spaces and commas, so it's a non-issue.

    Why would you want to play a pokemon game in jap? The stories in all mainline pokemon are shit

      I was thinking it would be a good place to start since it's a game targeted towards kids.

        No, games suck for that. Especially older ones designed played on 2'' screens.

    If you hyperfocus specifically on playing games and bruteforce it you can get playing in a month. Don't bother with core, and learn just from the games.
    However I feel like games may be a surprisingly hard place to start, from what I understand jap games use too much kana.

      The last thing I would ever give a new learner is Gen 5 itself since the Kanji, while easy to read for those sufficiently experienced, are
      >hard to read and look up for newer learners who haven't learned how to identify them
      >the kana mode is useless since it replaces entire words outright with simplified ones rather than direct kana forms of the words in the Kanji script
      This practice also carries through to the 3DS games, but at least the Kanji are easier to identify by virtue of not being 12px pixel fonts anymore.

        Something more recent that uses proper fonts would be better for an early learner since they will be
        >easier to identify the components
        >closer to what they "expect" them to look like when looking them up
        There is nothing worse than being some 新米 ass learner and encountering a pixel Kanji that you don't know whether you've correctly ID'd it since you simply do not have the knowledge base to tell what is what, or whether what you've found is close to something similar yet different.

        I recommend playing the Zelda 3DS games since they have Furigana. I think it was the train one or something.

    pokémon is the worst possible choice a beginner can make. the early games are all kana (this makes learning harder, not easier), they use too many proprietary words unique to the pokémon world, and if you already play pokémon games you'll eventually start autopiloting through menus and battle dialog just to keep advancing through the game

      Video games are just bad in general for the last reason you stated. You encounter more grammatical forms and vocab in five minutes of reading than an hour of gameplay.

    If you want to learn anything about any of those asian moonrunes languages, the first thing you need to do is learn to read the runes, after that you can start learning what you're reading actually means, I did the mistake of going to japanese classes this year knowing absolute shit about reading hiragana and to this day I continue to know dog shit about japanese, at least I got the duolingo app and been practicing hiragana and can at least read a lot of characters.

    Not worth it. It'll take you a minimum of 2 years of daily study to play anything beyond a toddler game with any comfort. I did that and I can play games but it's still not enough for fluent reading, still need to be glued to a dictionary and do kanji drills.That's thousands of hours wasted on an essentially useless skill. Meanwhile if you invest 100 hours into anything that's actually useful you get a lot in return. I've given up since I started doing other, far more rewarding things and I don't have more time to waste on japanese

      >kanji drills
      what the frick is this shit? did you use to sit down and study moonrunes in isolation? that's stupid.
      everyone knows what you have to do is look up all the tricks autists studying for kanken came up with.
