Oh right, I wasn't actually clicking the number. In my case, Japanese also sticks easily due to having heard all those language constructs hundreds of times. I am learning grammar and constructs right now. That is, I finished a book about them, so now I will reattempt reading Yotsubato! It's not easy by any means, but now I have an idea about the basic constructs and the general structure of the language, so it should be more productive. To be perfectly honest, lack of kanji makes it harder because it's harder to look things up that way.
