If you are first time SFromA, you should check these 3 steps before studying.

  1. Do you just watch Anime? It waste of your time…
  2. The first step to study Japanese
  3. How to use “Study from Anime(SFromA)”??

Hello guys!
Are you ready to study Japanese??

This SFromA is CH03!
It means you already watched ch3 of Damon Slayer already.
If you are not, please watch first! and come back!!!

Let’s start it.

SFromA Level 1

SFromA Level 1 focuses on vocabulary.
It is basic, so you need to memorize it.
If it is possible, try to memorize with pronunciation.

・昨日 = きのう (ki no u)
 → Yesterday

・今日 = きょう (kyo u)
 → Today

・明日 = あした (a shi ta)
 → Tomorrow


Everything is differently pronounced…
But when you watch carefully Kanji, you can see the same Kanji, it is ”日”

“日” means day. So, if you find this letter of Kanji, the whole meaning will relate to the day.

SFromA Level 2

SFromA Level focuses on a short sentence which is you can memorize.

※don’t try to memorize from Urokodaki… His speech is old.
You can study pronounce it too.
Try to speak it like the same with anime characters!

Today’s teacher is Tanjiro!

・くじけそう。(ku ji ke so u)
 → I’ll almost give in.

・まけそう。(ma ke so u)
 → I’m breaking down.


After Urokodaki does not teach Tnjirou, Tanjiro can’t slice a huge rock…
And, he said it.
When you almost give up, you can say it…

SFromA Level 3

SFromA Level 3 focuses on the Japanese connection word.
It is hard, but it is important.
You can try to understand it, but again it is hard.

Tanjiro said…

・Something you can slice with a sword?
 → 刀で切れるものだっけ?
  → かたなきれるものだっけ?
   (ka ta na de ki re ru mo no da kke?)


Today’s Japanese connection is “” (de) These are two meanings.

EX1 ) ペンかく (pe nn de ka ku)
   → I write with a pen.

EX2 ) けむりみえない。(ke mu ri de mi e na i)
   → I can’t see because of the smoke.

1, AでB = A is doing with B.
ペン(pen) “で” かく(write)
2, When you use the Japanese connection “で”, it means Subject has some happened after で。
けむり(smoke) “で” みえない (can’t see)

Now matter how you suffer, bear it in silence… 

if you’re a man. 

If you call yourself man.
