Kaze Hikaru update

Standard

I haven’t posted anything in this blog for a while, but since I’ll be translating some Kaze Hikaru pages I thought it would be good to post it here, since this is also Japanese learning ^^

Learned Kanji 18

Standard

Today I’ve been reviewing Kanji for the first time in a long time ^_^;; So I took the opportunity to memorize a small new group of them:

熱 netsu/atsui (heat, fever)
病 byou/yamai (sick/ill)
誤 go/ayamaru (mistake)
夜 ya/yoru (night/evening)
昼 chuu/hiru (noon/daytime)
暑 sho/atsui (summer heat/hot)
温 on/atatakai (warm/temperature)

Here you have two Kanji that can have the reading “atsui”, it’s true that both are related to “heat” but they don’t have the exact same meaning which is shown by the different Kanji.

LUNA SEA : THE ONE – crash to create – (lyrics)

Standard

This is Luna Sea’s amazing new single. I thought about trying to put the lyrics in romaji, so this is the result ^_^

Took the lyrics in Kanji from here

Oh 降りしきる光 So 高鳴る鼓動

今 頬伝う痛み So 伝えきれない想いを

その光は 消えては灯された

その新たな 時に命かけた…

その小さな 魂は知ってた

月光の輪が 海原をおさめた

Moonlight 託して…

呼び起こして Moonlight

壊して…

メザメテ…

さぁ 囁いて今 優しい声で 全てを差し出すから

心に深く 沈めていたよ 真実の姿を

小さな魂は 漆黒の闇夜に

新しい月が生まれるのを知る

膨れ上がる様に 弾け飛んだ夢の

欠片を集めてくれた君がいた

さぁ 囁いて今

小さな魂は 新しい姿を 手に入れた

月が満ちてゆく中で

荒れ狂う海原 その声は 掻き消されて…

空の彼方に 舞う

小さな魂は 漆黒の闇夜に

絶望の唄を歌っていたんだ

空の彼方まで 月の鏡に映して 翳して

君が見つけた僕は あの日の夜の風に

失いかけていたんだ 絶望の淵で

降りしきる この雨に 時は迷走して

ささやかな真実は 闇に包まれたまま…

降りしきる この雨に 君が凍えてたら

この胸に 抱き寄せて 守ってあげたい 今夜は

空の彼方へ 君の翼で 空の彼方へ

空の彼方に舞う 真実の欠片を…

空の彼方に舞う 真実の姿を…

君の瞳は

君の誓いは

君の瞳は

君が見つけた あの日の僕は

恐れていたよ 壊れる夜の唄

So 今答えよう So 高鳴る鼓動

今 闇を切り裂け 今 刻み込まれた想いよ

五つの魂は 引き寄せられるままに

光に溶け出して 時を変えてゆくよ

ねえ聞こえているのか ねえ見詰めているのか

月の言霊 あの夜

君が見つけた僕は あの日の風に散って

失いかけていたんだ この想いさえ

記憶の風が夜空を 染めてゆくから 今

新しい時が ほら 輝き始める

切り裂け翼よ はてなき空 答えよう

高鳴る想いのまま

切り裂け翼よ はてなき空

もう二度と 止む事はない 想いを

Learned Kanji 17

Standard

First post of 2012 and I hope I’ll do many this year ^_^v  My resolution about learning Japanese hasn’t changed, though it has become harder for me since I study by myself and sometimes I feel I can only progress very slowly … u_u

Anyways, these are the Kanji that I’ve just learned:

終 shuu/owari/tsui (end/finish)

答 tou/kotaeru (solution/answer)

過 ka/ayamachi (fault/error/to exceed)

魚 gyo /sakana (fish)

急 kyuu/isogu (to hurry)

家 ka/ya/ie (house)

教 kyou/ oshieru (teach/education)

夕seki/yuu (evening)

Japanese Verbs – The Book

Standard

It arrived last week and I’m really happy with my purchase ^_^ It’s the book by Tim R. Matheson called “Japanese Verbs – Saying What You Mean”.

Some photos (I apologize for the weak quality u_u):

If you know and like Tim’s material from his website you’ll certainly won’t regret buying this book. The contents are explained in a clear, simple manner, always with examples to aid the comprehension. It has helped me immensely to understand the language and to form sentences, all the Japanese that I can speak and understand is thanks to Mr. Tim’s works ^_^

Besides the Japanese verbs lessons it also features other relevant materials to complement your learning and the good thing is that you can use it if you’re just starting to learn Japanese Grammar and also if you’re a more advanced student.

I went trough my Kanji flashcards and discovered more compounds I can read:

人生 (life)
お手洗い (bathroom)
小学校 (elementary school)
火花 (sparks)
学生(student)
外国人(foreign person)
医者(doctor)

And the days of the week:
日曜日(Sunday)

金曜日(Friday)

Study Update!

Standard

It’s been so long! (again) -_-

Unfortunately my studies have slowed  down a bit in the past few weeks… u_u  So I’m in need of some reviewing before I can move forward again.

KanjiBox is a great aid, there you can review your Kana, Kanji, Vocabulary and Reading in a quiz- like mode.

It’s no secret that I appreciate Tim R. Matheson’s work, most grammar that I know and understand from Japanese comes from reading  materials from his site, so lately I’ve been thinking in purchasing his book “Japanese Verbs – Saying what you mean” since it’s more complete.

Another thing I’ve been missing is reading and analyzing lyrics from songs  I like, that used to do wonders on my Japanese learning…. *sighs*

Kanji compounds 2

Standard

I’ve been wanting to update for so long! >.< I really need to organize better (meh!)

天国 (heaven/paradise)

有名 (famous)

上手 (skill/skillful)

時間 (time)

多分 (perhaps/probably)

花火 (fireworks)

旅人 (traveler)

甘口 (sweet flavour/mildness)

本屋 (bookstore)

安心 (relief/peace of mind)
