Q: How did you start learning Japanese?
A: I started by attending Japanese language lessons in my local area. Since I was small I’ve always liked anime and been watching it, so I have a little bit of knowledge about Japanese. It took me around 8 months to get into a level of ~N4, after that, I decided to study in Japan for 1.5 months. To prepare for my study I studied like crazy for 2 months (we are talking a minimum of 8 hours a day here) every day. Also, when I was 7 I was forced by my parents to study Chinese Language, so I know a little bit about kanji. Though it doesn’t really help that much as some of the pronunciation and writing system are different. Currently, I still immerse when I have the time (reading novels, podcasts, and videos), I even set all of my phone, computer, and tab’s interfaces to Japanese

Q: Any tips for studying Japanese?
A: Immerse. Read and listen to a lot of native Materials. I started trying out LNs when I was around N3ish and to finish a page it took me around 1 hour using Jsho and all of that. Now I could finish a page within 1-3 minutes depending on the vocabulary and grammar.

Q: Any books recommendations for beginners who want to learn Japanese?
A: I would suggest to start from Minna no Nihongo or Genki 1&2, then go JLPT-based like Sou Matome N3 and start reading LNs, after that drill until you get to the level you aim to be. About kanji, I have read that a book called “Remembering the Kanji” by James Heisig is a good start. But personally, I learned it the hard way, using JLPT Books and put all unknown vocabs to Anki.

  1. I’m here waiting for shin 2, but even more so to thank you for the work you’ve put into this that is enjoyed by all of us that cannot read Japanese. If you never finish shin 2 you still deserve a huge thank you for what you took your time to do and allowed a community to leech off of.

  2. What will happen from now on with the translations of the volume 2, DX 5 and the future ones of Shin High School DxD?There will be some sort of new project after the DMCA taken down baka-tsuki?
