"Yojijukugo" are timeless Japanese idioms consisting of four kanji — written characters adapted from Chinese. The kanji themselves were originally drawings of images from real life. Japanese comic books and cartoons now provide fresh images to help us learn. "Kanji de Manga," recipient of the Saitama (Japan) Prefectural Government Business Innovation Special Award, uses today's manga images to make the kanji learning process fun and easy for "otaku" of all ages.

 

Written by Glenn Kardy, editor of several volumes in the popular How to Draw Manga series, including Getting Started, the first book of its kind to be used at major universities in the United States (UCLA) and Japan (Waseda). Artwork by Chihiro Hattori. Features a foreword by Ronald A. Morse, retired professor of Japan Studies at UCLA and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Great books!

These books are a fantastic learning aid. The dialogues are extremely useful and well supported. The best part is that they are actually fun to use. You can perform role playing with a partner so two can learn Japanese. The downloads that come with the books are a special bonus. The MP3s are easy to use and provide sound to the written language. Books. MP3 files. What more can you ask for?

A great, and fun, educational tool.

The idea to combine stories written in hiragana with an audio recording of the text is a simple idea but very effective. There are kanji in each story too (with furigana) but the story is broken down line by line with explanations for particles, kana and each kanji. The audio recordings are great and the lady who reads them has beautifully precise and crystal clear pronunciation, that is easy to absorb and a delight to listen to! All in all I’m very satisfied and my kanji knowledge has increased with each one. Highly recommended, just bear in mind you will need to be able to read hiragana.

Great for beginners!

These are amazing! Every sentence is broken down, it comes with audio, but to me the best part is these feel like real conversations. This feels like a natural way to learn a language. Learning through real everyday conversations. Thank you Clay and Yumi!

A fun tool!

These stories are much shorter than the Japanese Reader collection, but are just as fun. They are full of grammar, vocabulary and listening comprehension as well. These may be harder for beginners but are a great tool and I will be coming back to them more than once!

Awsome!

This bundle is absolutely amazing in not just monetary value, but in learning value. These are full of vocabulary and every sentence and word is broken down for you. You can look up a specific word if that is all you need or you can look at the translation of the whole sentence. Please get this if you are looking to improve your reading, listening, vocabulary, and cultural understanding. These stories are not randomly chosen, they are stories that most Japanese people will know.
