Anyone who is serious about Japanese or modern Japan will want this book. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? What is “Basic Japanese”? This book presents some very basic words and phrases along with some that are not usually considered “basic” at all. In fact, some of the material in this book is not typically presented until the student is well into his or her study of the Japanese language—and even then, it can be confusing without a skilled explanation.
The Mangajin method, however, makes even this advanced material “basic” and accessible to students at all levels. Frames from Japanese manga “comics” are used to illustrate every point, and English translations and notes allow even the basic beginner to understand material that might otherwise stump advanced students. Basic Japanese through Comics is not intended as a textbook, but rather as an entertaining supplement to a more formal study of Japanese.
The 24 “lessons” in this book do not build on each other—they can be read or studied in any order.

Indispensable if you are learning how to read Japanese books and manga and how to write Japanese sentences in kanji and kana. It shows how common Japanese expressions and sentences are constructed, breaks them down for you, and translates fomics concept of each sentence using the building block approach.
These 3 steps show clearly how Japanese sentences are constructed. Often instructional books skip the 2nd step. Mangajin is fun to read and groups common Japanese expressions you hear every day into chapters and explains them.
Mangajin’s Basic Japanese through comics
For example, there are chapters dedicated to “the meaning of Hai” alone. It is amply illustrated with manga panels from popular books from the s. I own both Vol 1 and 2.
My only regret is that they did not continue this magazine or series, because there should be enough to fill at least 2 more volumes.
Once upon a time there was a wonderful magazine called “Mangajin” japwnese helped you learn Japanese through Manga — Japanese comics. In the process it also taught about Japanese life and culture as well as serving as an introduction to Manga themselves.
The magazine, alas, is no more. But this book is a collection of excerpts aimed specifically at learning Japanese. Starting very simply, it walks you through Japanese using panels from manga to illustrate the concepts. It also uses througy unique representation system where each sentence is shown first in Japanese characters, then in phonetic English, then in a literal translation, and usually a colloquial English translation.
This is coupled with explanatory notes in English. The book won’t teach you Japanese by itself, but it will help you get started in an easy, fun manner. Japanesd book does not teach grammar or vocabulary: It truly is invaluable, as it would take a significant amount of work for someone to figure out all the diverse, sometimes contradictory, mangain uses of each of those expressions on their own.
Series: Mangajin’s Basic Japanese Through Comics
I would like to add that while the format is similar, the content is NOT the same as Jaanese the Manga Way – it is complementary, and I would highly recommend you also acquire that book. Not suitable for serious study since romanization hinders reading progress.
The eye will of course always go there first, and the paper is too thin to redact with marker. I can post this same review for a few other books made in this style. It is a completely discredited “feature” and has to stop, especially since the book would be pretty good otherwise. This is a great book to get if you have already learned 6 months of Japannese or so at least. It is a series of chapters illustrating a few interesting words or topics of Japanese language, all throufh with bits of real, commercially available manga.
But be warned, they use a “magnifying glass” approach which I loved: For example, the chapter on “hon”, one of the counters, goes on and on for four pages of comic book panels. I will never forget what that word means and how to use it and I was fascinated with the examples from the comics.
But then again, it is just ONE word. It is a book for nasic that jspanese not in a hurry and are having fun with Japanese, as opposed to people that need to learn Japanese quickly for a particular objective. I read this and volume two a couple of times reverting back to it when I needed a break from actual studying.
I may not be jwpanese expert in Japanese and other comments might be more to your liking but it does help in breaking the cultural barriers between me and my wife.
I would definitely recommend this for kids to start mnagajin from. And I love the ideas presented in this book so japanwse that I lent it to a friend who never returned it yet! But I will get it back one of these days since I want to learn a bit more and indulge in my reading escapism!
This book shares the concept of “Japanese the manga way” An image taken from a real manga that has been published not a manga specially invented for the method the text in Japanese next to it, the text in english phonetics, thranslation in each word in the Japanese Order and finally the English translation.
You learn a lot of vocabulary, you see a lot of different Baeic fonts which trains your eyes to all the possible fonts you can encouter and it’s really well explained.
Perfect for people learning on their own Only downside is there are no exercises. I really think it’s too bad, but this one, the number two and japanese the manga way are really great.

I bought this book to review my Japanese, after studying mangaajin for many years in college and subsequently not utilizing it. This book is a really fun way to review. I don’t think it would be applicable for people without any knowledge of Japanese, though. See all 16 reviews.
