Yotsuba and Ore Monogatari Japanese for Beginners

  1. Whelp, I needed to read both of those anyway. I own quite a few Japanese language manga’s with the intent of forcing myself to learn and understand what’s going on. It’s certainly a helpful strategy as the art can help you with context in a lot of cases. As you stated though the language can sometimes be different that what would normally be used especially if the characters are younger and mispronounce words. Good podcast,
