Wow more and more people are learning japanese coz of YUI.. I'm one of 'em too! I'm same with Shinjichan, i study alone.. with podcasts. I'm too tired of reading books so i found an alternative..XD but it's fun. Coz the teacher/voice actresses are good. Its not like any other podcast (which are hell boring).. this one is the real deal..lolz and they keep you updated with wats goin on in japan. And they have omoshiroi conversations!
