wow you really are pushing through with this! Keep up the good work with the video uploads.

I hope you don't take this as offensive but how you enunciate Japanese is reminiscent of the Canadian brothers from Monkey Magik. Well, it sounds like that to me.

I should record myself reading a text so I can hear what kind of accent I have.

I reserve the right to be offended until I hear what those guys sound like...

Appreciate the support though!

I am quite surprised you do not know of the group...

here is a sampling of the kind of music they do..

I have been a reader for a year now but I have not really commented. hehehe I really find your posts about yoji very informative. I know doing blogs like this is a chore but it really helps with study. I on the other hand is eternally stuck with 3kyuu level grammar points... heheeh

Oh, I've heard of them. I've just never heard the guys in the band talk.

Are you living in Japan now?

I love posting on the Daily Yoji, and I do it because I'm really interested in the things I post, but damn man... I get so busy with my jobs and other projects that invariably, something suffers. Usually, it's Brett.

Well to your question: The first yoji I could think of was 一刀両断 and my favourite one is without doubt 意志堅固.

Your hard work is much appreciated, it's good to see other foreigners with the kind of passion for learning Japanese I can relate to.

I think your accent is pretty minimal; some enunciations are simply a little too strong, which is what people call an american or canadian accent in Japanese. Your rhythm is excellent though. Just my two cents.
