Keep practicing and keep reading. You're already surrounded by kanas, if you can spell jp, you're oshis's name, etc. You're already pretty decent.

You shouldn't be having trouble with kana. Its just like learning another alphabet, its simple.

At least get up to Kanji before experiencing difficulty.

Kanji is a bitch though, but its all about exposure and memorization, and through that, if its just about watching vtubers,

you won't even necessarily need to even know the exact spelling to know what is being referred to.

>> No.1013523

Sounds ironic, but vtubers arent interesting enough to learn an entire language for.
I like vtubers because it's mindless fun. Clips are good enough.
Not to mention that many Vtubers are like Twitch streamers with and IRL component. I watch carlsagan42 on YouTube. While I like Carl, I don't like his content enough to watch 3 hours of backtracking in SMM2 troll levels. The clips allow for condensed overview of the entire stream.
Vtubers? It would seem like the same scenario. Watching anime girls screw around in the game until the good parts is boring. Would much rather have the highlights of the thing.

The only streams worth watching front to back are ASMR. Even then, I'm usually doing something like sleeping or work.

The ridiculous cartoon voices some of them are putting on become glaringly obvious once you're fluent and some of the romance of the foreignness fades as well, that's true.
Vtubers shouldn't be your only motivation imo. Fundamentally they're just stream girls. There's a lot more to Japanese than just chuubas, but if your only interest in the language really is just anime stream girls then you probably don't have enough fuel to make it to the end.

No you are not. If you had old age dementia then yeah, but someone your age is just as sharp or even sharper than someone like me, in my 20s.
>Also, I'm not sure if those learn Japanese games I keep seeing actually work or not.
They don't. From firsthand experience, I know that learning the basics, then tackling native material you want to read asap is the most efficient and fastest way to learn. You are going to be doing a lot of searching, but only because learning a language is just that of a monumental effort. As long as you keep at it day in and day out, you'll feel comfortable with japanese no matter what you do.
That, plus Anki.
Fair enough, this thread is for people who are fans of japanese vtubers.
> Watching anime girls screw around in the game until the good parts is boring. Would much rather have the highlights of the thing.
Not everything is clipped in English, unless it's a popular hololive member. I'm a clip watcher myself, but most clips I watch are jp clips of relatively obscure vtubers.
Your worries are sadly not unfounded. I pretty much stopped watching chuubas with made up voices once I started to parse them. I used to watch Suisei but now her voice is grating on my ears.
Well put.

>> No.1018158

do this: https://www.tofugu.com/japanese/learn-hiragana/

Then do tofugu katakana.

Look into ANKI, its a spaced repetition program (flashcards) to learn a TON of material easily.

Do RTK, learning just the kanji's english meaning (assigning a english word to basically get you on the level of a chinese person learning japanese, as kanji originated from China). You only need to learn about 1000 kanji and 250 radicals.

Do a basic vocab deck.

Then go onto sentence mining.

Make sure to actively immerse (aim for 2 hours a day of consuming raw japanese) and passively immerse whenever you can.
