Crayon Shinchan (クレヨンしんちゃん kureyon shinchanis 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.

Example inside pages may not be from this exact volume, but it is representative of the level and style of Japanese.

Just what I was looking for. Thank you very much! Although I just bought the first 6 issues but I will - eventually - subscribe for future issues.
Did you consider adding QR codes after each hyperlink? I am reading this via my Kindle and listening to the MP3 on my phone. With the QR I could easily open the link without having to type in each time ;)

Japanese Dialogues Value Bundle [4 Paperback Set]
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!
