Although vocabulary and kanji reviews are a bit discouraging, working through the dialogue of new strips has been relatively easy. Hopefully the dialogue isn’t keeping real simple to give me a false sense of progress just before dumping massive amounts of complex dialogue on me. (Maybe I should give the introductory strips a read later to see if there’s any visible progress?)
I had a lot less time to review today, so thankfully it was another easy strip.
Vocabulary and kanji review is still taking up a significant amount of my study time, with 91 cards in 41 minutes of review, before starting today’s strip. Thankfully today’s is low on dialogue and the grammar is simple.
I’d avoided starting the next strip as I’ve been having trouble working through the massive amount of vocabulary starting to show up in Anki. With some adjustments, I’m ready for the next strip.
Another simple strip. Main point for today is starting new kanji while keeping up with older vocabulary coming up in Anki.
These easy days are going to give me a false sense of progress. Today, it’s only three panels with dialogue, and of those, only a couple of things for me to learn.
My first workday since the dialogue length increased means no longer spending half the day on one 4koma strip. As if knowing my evening study time is limited weekdays, Cocoa-san and Chino-san give easier dialogue today.
After reviewing prior vocabulary in Anki (including writing kanji), I started the new day’s learning by writing all the dialogue in today’s strip. It filled an entire page in the sketchbook I’m using.

Reviewing everything prior to today, the main word for me to focus on learning are
