Okay, this as a dumb yet informative announcement:

I honestly learn more kanji from trying to parse ridiculously cute/well-drawn/deliciously aaaangsty/EFFYESMYOTP j-fen fancomics than I do, from, y'know a decently organized course of study. Which is sad, but probably not that surprising. .__.

On that note:

Uki, my S80 fan-love, why on earth do you use the more obscure kanji for relatively common words? I spent 5 minutes staring at one panel, until I made the discovery that... this was an alternate for 戦い. Acceptable because there are definite nuances there (I think 闘い is more figurative? Against nature, against rivals, whereas 戦い seems to be actual war/fighting, but don't take my word for it) but I nearly beat my head against the wall when I found out, mostly because, FML, I already knew it from 戦闘. Orz. And then there was the fiasco with 所為, which confused me to no end: I tried to think about it from the Chinese, failed miserably, was on the verge of reaching for a dictionary when I hit it after going through all the readings in my head. (It's "sei," if you're wondering. Used in the sentence, "Omae no sei ja ne-." After, y'know what looks to be a first kill sort of situation. Yes I am dumb like a brick. D|)

Brrr I cannot believe that school starts so soon.
