Hi, im elecmon. Im just a teenager, but i still am into japanese and new age music more than boys, rap, and make-up (curse the rap!!!) I have been searching for a long time to find a book easy enough to help me learn Japanese, (i love japanese! ^__^) because i am kind of a slow learner, and I finally came across this book. It was amazing! Its so easy, and I enjoyed every minute of it! Thats why this book gets 5 brilliant, dazzleing stars from me!
