Well, Im two weeks into my Japanese 1 class that im taking this summer. Its a 5credit course condensed into 6weeks, so it moves at a very accelerated pace.
Ive learnt to write and read hiragana and katakana, which are each comparable to our alaphabet in English. We started Kanji a few days ago, AND MAN can it be confusing. Since a symbol can mean multiple syllables, I cant see how one would quickly read through it. But Im sure it'll just take some getting used to. Typing in Jap is quite
Bought a laptop this morning!
Dell Vostro 1400
14", 1.4Ghz Core 2 Duo, 2GB, 160GB, 8400GS, 9Cell battery.

This mourning we played in the semi-finals against UCF (A Team). I only played singles and lost
Full title: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
50 episodes long, pretty entertaining throughout.
Action shounen genre with some comedy
The story isnt very deep, but its spread out well and executed nicely. All training is depicted, unlike most anime where characters become stronger out of nowhere. Fights range from a few minutes to 1-2 episodes. The fights are "Street Fighter like" without any of the "powers."
