I say learn learn greetings an. Common words and try typing them out and stuff in hiragana, then try to get used to just basic grammar at first and some verbs. Doing words are quite useful I think. And improve listening!!! U can then learn more from just watching japanese media

if you want to use dorama or anime to practice, try to use japanese subtitles, search the meaning of the words you don't understand, and try to understand the dorama. But if you have not studied enought until now, it may be too hard. Too much unknow words and grammar. In that case, maybe is better to go back to textbooks.
Also, try to choose a easy to understand dorama. Anime for kids must be much more easy. Adult dorama may content lots of “kanji words” from chinese. (Those words are not difficult just because of the kanji, its chinese origin makes it very different from pure japanese words and katakana/english words.)

In short. I think you must go to kitsuneko's website and chose an easy to understand anime subtitles. Then try to get the anime that fits those subtitles in Internet.

If you preffer to pay for a DVD or so, try to buy it on a online store, but make sure it has japanese subtitles and you dvd player can play it.

There is a website with japanese subtitles for dorama, but can't remember the name... “j-drama” or something...?

みなさん、こんにちは。
So lately I have been experimenting with my Moto X Google Now voice commands in Japanese. However, I was not able to figure them out by myself. So I decided to crawl through the internet for the answers I was looking for. The search term I used was [Google now commands in Japanese]. Unfortunately, I was not able to find it in Japanese right away. I did find a few videos of people who spoke native English attempting to do  what I was searching for with very little success. So I went back to web search and found the official Google support page which was in English. It did not tell me anything until I changed the ending of the web address from [=en] to [=ja]. After examining the page I began to understand why some people may not have been able to figure out what voice commands are available in Japanese. There is not any furigana (hiragana or katakana above the kanji)on the entire page. Which would make it difficult for anyone who does not know how to read kanji. So I copied the the information and changed all the kanji into furigana. Then placed the document into my google drive so I could share this with you. :)

PLEASE let me know what commands work for you. 

じゃ またね。

Hey guys, I'm thinking about making a web app for learning kana and I'm out of ideas of what to call the app. I'm looking for something somewhat unique. Does anyone have some ideas?

In a country used to mascots, even Japanese people are surprised by "Bonito Man," better known as Katsuo Ningen, who represents one of Japan's most isolated prefectures.
