>Alright I've got everything set up, now what?

Fucking LEARN, you bitch. Learn the Kana first, then move on to grammar and vocabulary. I don't have all the fucking answers, I'm just the OP. Maybe you can ask for help in this thread, but who knows if you'll find any worthwhile feedback amidst the shitposting. Honestly you should be able to figure most shit out on your own.
what about this new 1.5k deck? https://github.com/donkuri/Kaishi
>This deck has its origin in a discussion between Tyogin and myself in the TMW dicksuck server. We were both lamenting the fact that the popular beginner decks at the time had annoying flaws. Beginners kept getting confused when using Core 2k and Tango due to various issues. Tango had some obscure words in it such as ナンプラー which is a Thai fish sauce and many people weren't really interested in all the basic phrases and country names taking up such a large amount of the deck. The deck's fields were formatted terribly which made it impossible to use the deck in a different way than was originally intended, which was sentence cards. Core 2k on the other hand was modular, but had multiple mistranslations, missing or unrelated pictures and some of the sentences weren't very useful, sometimes not even reflecting the meaning of the word used.

>Both of these issues were annoying enough that we would get beginners asking questions about it every two weeks. Tyogin proposed we fix the issue ourselves and a small team was assembled to fix these issues. We mostly took data from Core2k, Core10k, Tango N4 and Tango N5. We then combined the data, sorted the words by frequency using various Yomichan/Yomitan frequency dictionaries and selected around 1500 words. We then fixed the translations for each word, chose the best sentence for each word and fixed the sentence if it needed fixing. We had to fix roughly 120 sentences out of the 1500 we chose. After this, we generated audio for words that were missing proper audio, and a team of two people (Karifurai and cindsa) verified the pitch accent data we got from AJT Japanese as well as adding pitch accent notes for words that needed it. We then took out silence on the cards and normalized the audio level between the various files. On top of that, we also generated furigana from AJT Japanese for the words and the sentences. After this, we designed a basic hint targeted sentences card CSS to be used on the default version of the deck. Finally, multiple people proofread the deck to make sure we had as few errors as possible.

Don't know whether it's a good recommendation or not since I don't know nip, but there's some game on the PS2 that's caught my attention called Shibai Michi.
One day Sony got a little creative with the PS2 microphone, and instead of doing karaoke shovelware you're playing seiyuus for some puppet looking motherfuckers on a bunch of different scenarios. If you're not going co-op you can decide which puppet to voice and which one will play its VA for, and it uses furigana for the kanji from what I've seen.
Other than that, I've been skimming some gameplay and the storylines in some of these look batshit crazy. This is the best gameplay footage I could find. Since it's a spoken game it's clear it's going to attract the streamer/let's player variety like locusts.

Well you're in the right place to fix that.

Anyone playing Kanji de Go?

I don't know how useful it is for study, but it's pretty great at reminding you that you suck.

It taught me 弖爾乎波(て・に・を・は) and other useless stuff.
If you're that keen on learning moonrunes, then grab one of the kanken games or something. They have sections for synonyms and antonyms, write the correct kanji, write the okurigana, find the odd kanji out, 3 and 4-character compounds, etc.

Oh boy, yet another "perfected" beginner's Anki deck. It feels like every year someone decides to take it on themselves to fix Core 2k. It really doesn't matter what deck you start with. What is most important is to have the drive to continue studying, learning, and reading daily.

Kanken looks very useful, thanks for the suggestion.

my main issue is when you want to learn how to say something, you don't have any thesaurus or phrasebook of sorts telling you how to say it (or how to figure it out).
say, if you want to express "that happened a long time ago" you'd say something like 「とっくの話」. you feel caught completely off guard by the usage of 話 instead of using the verb happen, and the usage of とっく instead of something a literal translation like '長い時間' or whatever. same shit with phrases like 「沈黙が訪れた」 (~=everyone fell silent or whatever).
tl;dr point is it's completely unintuitive since you can't ever hope to figure out the words you need to use, and the words you already know are no help.
your only hope is to one day bump into the magic phrase you need to use in that one setting.

Yeah let me just walk down to the local park and chat one up.

Probably a long shot, but since this is a language learning general, I just want to ask briefly if anyone has any resources or encountered resources about Hebrew that they could share.

Good luck, lemme know how it goes.
