ゆっくり読むこともいい It’s OK to read slowly

August 21, 2009

My attempt to read a Japanese book is going painfully slow!!!

But, I’ve been enjoying the read so far… if I’m not being too picky on understanding every single word, I sort of get the general gist of what’s written.

The casual form is one of the things that are making it hard for me too. Also the fact that some kanji are written in hiragana. The kanji to me is like identifiers – they give me approximate locations of the nouns and probably the verbs.

There, have fun with this excerpt:

 

美少女リナちゃん、みりょくばくはつ~。(魅力爆発)

「気にしなくていい。かよわい(か弱い)少年と母親がおそわれているのが、許せなかっただけだ」剣士は、パチンと剣をさやにおさめる。(鞘に収める)

「・・・はあ?」

思わず、こおりつくあたし。

しょ、少年とその母親ぁ!?

Like all Slayers books, narratives by Lina. That Shounen vs. Haha-Oya phrase is by none other than Gourry. I’m happy I understood all that, wakakaka~~!!
