Learn Japanese Through Anime and Manga

Posted by on February 9, 2010 in Japanese Study Tools | 11 comments

If you are learning Japanese there is a good chance that you are into anime or manga. At least this seemed to be the case when I studied in Japan, and also when I worked as an admissions counselor at a Japanese University. The great thing is that Japanese anime and manga can be used to supplement your Japanese studies. And thanks to the Japan foundation, there is a free source. anime-manga.jp


It looks like the site is still in the works, but already has an expressions module, which includes the expressions, the grammar, and pronunciation.

There is also a word quiz module with a beginner, intermediate, advanced, and phrase section. If each section contains it’s own words then there are a total of 1,700 Japanese words to study altogether, plus a number of Japanese phrases.

It looks like they will also be adding an expressions by scene module and a kanji module in the near future. So as long as they keep ading to the site, this will become a great tool for you to study Japanese.

Check it out and don’t forget to leave a comment here with your impressions of the site.

    i’ve watched a lot of anime and it is often said that some anime language is too casual (or even rude) to be used in conversations. i wonder if that is true? also, the verbs they use are often in dictionary form in contrary to the polite -masu form i often encounter in sites that teach japanese. i hope you can clear my doubts.

    p.s. my username is a manga character i like.

    You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be
    actually one thing that I think I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely vast for me. I am taking a look forward on your next post, I will try to get the hold of it!
