...but I am serious about my SP.

Soon, tonight's SP special will appear on the internet. DO NOT WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FIRST MOVIE AND DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED. It completely spoils the whole thing, and we're only 30 minutes in.

In other news, I recently rewatched Kabuto, and I actually have no new thoughts on it. Deka, on the other hand... I'm pining for Tetsu, you guys. (We're actually stopped on the episode before he gets introduced.) This is not cool.

As sort of an addendum to yesterday's post, let's talk about kanji on a more philosophical level. I mean, why should you even need kanji at all, right? I ran across this Tofugu article about kanji learning, and I realized not everyone in the world is as convinced as I am about the value of kanji.

Why is it important you learn kanji? )

Or, how I learned 900 kanji in less than a year.

So! Today we are going to talk about the thing I've devoted the last ~9 mo. to AND SO CAN YOU: The Japan Kanji Aptitude Test, or Kanji Kentei (日本漢字能力検定)

Wait! Don't run away! Just because it's a kanji test doesn't make it really scary! I promise.

Why You Should Consider Taking the KanKen )
How to Prepare )
Applying for and Taking the KanKen )
Special Explanation: The Compound Formation Section )

In conclusion, I hope this will be helpful to all of you out there studying Japanese! Please tell me if there's anything I've forgotten in the comments :D

Hi! I'm back from Australia, but in general very busy and also feeling like a slug. So, to all my kanjipocalypse peeps: I'M SORRY FOR LETTING YOU DOWN. This week I will start putting them up again, okay? PLEASE FORGIVE ME. I just... need some time to be a slug, it seems.

Also! I went to see the KR/Gosei movie, which was awesome, and I ended up taking 14 pages of notes! I tried to write (in colored pen) when something was illegible what I had meant, but... well, you know. Comprehensive thoughts are on the last page. Spoilers, obviously, and image-heavy. )
