Moekana 5 a day – U Ka Chi To Tsu

September 21, 2014

u ka chi to tsu

Todays moekana are U, Ka, Chi, To and Tsu.

う ウ U
か カ Ka
ち チ Chi
と ト To
つ ツ Tsu

So this selection… I can think of less words…

Chichi – Father, or slang for breasts? If DBZ is anything to go by XD

Some words I don’t know. This bunch was harder for words I already knew… Need a wider mix 🙂

Kachi かち – Wins
Kau かう – Buy/Purchase
Tochi とち – Horse chestnut
Toukatsu とうかつ – Supervising
Uchi うち – Out

My Moekana 5 a day – Ku Su Se Ki Shi

September 20, 2014

ku su se ki shi

So todays moekana are ku, su, se, ki and shi.

く ク ku
す ス su
せ セ se
き キ ki
し シ shi

Instantly I think ‘shiki’ which is vampire, in that anime series ‘Shiki’, but just means expression, or formula or ceremony?? D: And ‘suki’ which is like, and obviously ‘sushi’. So so far we got…

Shiki しき- Expression, formula or ceremony o_O
Suki すき- Like
Sushi すき- Sushi :3
Kiseki きせき- Miracle! I know this cos of ‘Clamp no Kiseki’ XD

Those are the only words I truly knew before… these are some I didn’t really 🙂

Kushi くし- Skewer, for like, BBQing stuff I think.
Seki せき- Place or seat.
Kishi きし- means Dejavu, which is pretty damn cool.
Kiku きく- Listen (that’s not what Navi says in Zelda all the time is it? Or does it just say ‘Listen’ in every language?)
Kiki きき- Equipment? Device?? I only knew it as a name XD
Shishi しし- is a Chinese guardian lion… and a place name. But it’s a Lion protector in Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism which I think is pretty cool.

I’m gonna leave it there. Cos I’ll be clutching at straws lol. I need to find my Japanese dictionary…

My Moekana Five-a-day – Ta Te Sa Ke E

September 19, 2014
Lookit the cuteness

Lookit the cuteness (click to enlarge)

So I recently, well, not that recently, but in the last 2 months or so, acquired a set of Moekana, and Moekanji, AND the booster pack. Cos my friend didn’t know which one was which… so I got them all… XD And I’ve been trying to memorise the hiragana first. I started out by doing 5 or so a day, and adding more cards as I went along. The ‘kakikukeko’ method is all well and good for speaking, but they’re not always gonna be in order when you’re reading them or writing them. So I mix them up :3

And I will be posting 5 cards a day on my blog and trying to make as many words as I know/vaguely recognise from anime or drama or anything.

Todays are; ta te sa ke e.

た タ ta
て テ te
さ サ sa
け ケ ke
え エ e
I’m not concentrating on the katakana so much at the moment. Cause I wanna get the hiragana first. Then theres the world of pain which is kanji… *shudder*

For this selection I got…..
さけ sake
たえて taete – endured/endure/withstand/enduring/withstood
けさ kesa – this morning
さえて saete – clearheaded
てえ Te – want, wish, wants
さて sate – now, well, okay, so

‘Saete’ is something I’ve heard I think, could have been saiite… or sa iiko….
‘Sake’ is a fairly obvious one. But the others… I’d need to see/hear being used in a sentence to fully get their meaning. Little help? Also please inform me if any of those words are wrong. Google translate isn’t that clever yet..
