Crayon Shinchan #48 $ 6.99
Crayon Shinchan (クレヨンしんちゃん kureyon shinchan) is a manga about a five-year old kindergartner named Shinnosuke who is called "Shinchan." He is a Japanese Dennis the Menace with a talent for wordplay. This can make the Japanese difficult to understand, but it also is a great way to learn Japanese wordplay.  For example, a typical Shin-chan saying would be a play on ありがとう arigatou (thank you): ありがとうさん ari ga tousan (an ant is my father) はえがかあさん hae ga kaasan (a fly is my mother) The first few pages are always in color. Most pages are in black and white. All kanji have furigana (small hiragana to the side) which means everyone with hiragana knowledge can get something out of this manga. Still, some concepts and vocabulary may be advanced. Upper beginners can attempt to plow through it with the help of a dictionary. NOTE: While this is a used manga, every effort has been made to select issues with only the best condition. Still, this may not be for those wanting pristine. It is excellent for studying with and enjoying.

CLOSEOUT: Monthly Nihongo April 2005 - The Japan Shop
CLOSEOUT: Monthly Nihongo April 2005 $ 5.00
Recommended for Advanced Back in the day, Nihongo Journal (along with the venerable Mangajin--requiescat in pace) was the magazine many Japanese learners were eager to snatch up at the newspaper stand before the one or two copies they stocked were gone. Sadly, both passed on. Mangajin around 1998 and Nihongo Journal in 2005.  I asked my magazine supplier to send us the nearest equivalent: "Give me a magazine all about Japanese," I asked. Blinded by sadness, I accepted this one (Monthly Nihongo) without doing any research. Well, the magazine is indeed all about Japanese, but instead of learning Japanese, it is about teaching Japanese.    It is still very interesting--especially if you are in to linguistics. But the language is native-level Japanese and is not appropriate for anyone less than an advanced student. If you are such a student and you like learning about learning Japanese, this is definitely for you.
