This award-winning series from Manga University uses original comic artwork to teach readers how to identify and write the most common Japanese kanji ideographs. Volume 1 introduces 80 basic kanji that all Japanese schoolchildren learn before entering the third grade.
"A brilliant idea!" says Ronald A. Morse, retired professor of Japan Studies at UCLA and the University of Las Vegas, Nevada. "Japanese kanji the written symbols adapted from Chinese were originally drawings of images from real life. Japanese comic books and cartoons now provide fresh images to help us learn. Kanji de Manga uses today's manga images to make the kanji learning process fun and easy for otaku of all ages. This is a brilliant approach to learning the language."
Each page features its own comic strip, kanji pronunciation guide, stroke order, and English explanations.
Created by Glenn Kardy, editor of several volumes in the popular How to Draw Manga series, including Getting Started, the first book of its kind to be used at major universities in the United States (UCLA) and Japan (Waseda). Artwork by Chihiro Hattori, niece of legendary manga artist Eichi Fukui. Features a foreword by Tomonori Morikawa, Professor of International Studies at Waseda University, Tokyo.

About the authors
Top reviews from other countries
Only get these books when you have completed a beginners level course. The kana are meant to run continuously, as that's how the Japanese use them (they rarely break kana into separate words and have little punctuation.) Each book is self-contained and covers the kanji required for each level of the JLPT (IE, vol 1 covers level 4, Vol 2 adds the next 80 required for level 3, etc..). The tests comprise a series of multiple choice questions. Each question requires either a knowledge of particles or kana to kanji transcription (or the reverse). There is NO romanji (what I'm using here), just Kana and Kanji.
If you're thinking of seeking employment in japan, you really need JLPT level 3 or higher, as these qualifications are actually recognised (and run) by the Japanese themselves.
If you just want to translate kanji, then buy a kanji dictionary (Kodansha do several). If you want to pass the JLPT then buy these (AND a dictionary^_^)
