Manga recommendation:  マンガ家さんとアシスタントさんと ~ The Comic Artist and His Assistants.


Not really sure where I’m going with this because it hasn’t been released in english (though maybe some scanlations are out?), but hopefully you can find it in a digestive format somewhere ^^;  Also, I tend to have a pretty broad tastes… but in the spirit of rambling about my passion of the day, here we go ^^

Learn to Read! Japanese Reading Lesson 007: ない・ません

Posted by meronpan on May 13, 2009

Welcome back!  To those actually interested in the manga I used for lesson material last time, sorry for the cliffhanger (well, perhaps that’s a little strong, it wasn’t that dramatic ^^;).  Today we will cover the negative present tense!  Click here for lesson 1 or here for the previous lesson (6).  Ready?  Rettsu GO!

Learn to Read! Japanese Reading Lesson 006: Intro to Verbs and Wanting

Posted by meronpan on April 22, 2009

This has got to be the most out of order Japanese reading course you’ll ever find. ^^;  This is also an unheard of two Japanese lessons in a row.  Anyhow, today’s topic is wanting! As in, “I want to go swimming” or “I want to eat taiyaki.” Or…


Sorry about the bad scan… manga don’t exactly lay flat ^^;;  Lesson material is taken from the opening chapter of まんが家さんとアシスタントさんと (まんがかさんとあしすたんとさんと == Mr. Manga Artist & Ms. Assistant &). Read on for an explanation of the “tai” form, but first, and introduction to verbs!  Might be unsafe for work, but then again you shouldn’t be studying Japanese at work (usually) :P

From this point on, I will not always put up romaji for the hiragana, so make sure to get those down!  Total immersion, it’s for your own good :P
