Games and Japanese

Postby Mii » Fri Apr 14, 2017 7:06 pm

Hmm Interesting that no one ever posted here. I am trying to improve my Japanese by playing some games as it worked great for me and English. Has anyone done it here? Would anyone have any recommendation?

Well, Mii, I don't play games and taught myself Japanese using the Genki textbooks, so I can't myself help you.

And I did ask the veteran translators of the team, and though both play games in Japanese, both recommend just plain reading as the way forward. Momimomi-senpai did say he can recommend virtual novels to you if you tell him the genres you like.

Well, I think that would really help if you like them. I think I never found one that I would be eager to read through/ try to translate. Thanks for the tip, tough.

If you are thinking of translating something, how about our TL test? o:)

Well, I was trying that, but I was taking such a long time that I decided to take a long detour through Kanjis... I need to try the test again sometime.

Bah! Wraith didn't even post the link I gave to him.
Regarding "what" are visual novels, a picture is worth a thousand words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwO59VS7eZ8
Since you don't know kanji well, you can read VNs with a parser. Google: ITH, VNR, Chiitrans.

Hey, I resent that! There's Visual Novels without any porn content in it.
