A part of me wants to rave about this podcast in Romaji, just to show how helpful it is. I'm taking Japanese this year at my high school and was originally planning on using the podcast as "practice". Instead, what I got was an amazingly useful resource that in only three short weeks has helped me understand the language and culture immensely. I can already understand words that my friends, one of which has studied Japanese for few years, simply cannot remember or comprehend! For anyone who prefers learning in short, take-anywhere bursts, this is for you. If not, then this is also for you. It's really that good.
