    Hiragana and katakana were the first things I learnt. After that it was vocab, kanji and grammar.

    Btw, I watched a lot of Naruto for vocab and exposure :lol:
    Wait.....I thought the Japanese in anime was different to the everyday Japanese that people speak.

    I'm 18.

    I miss central heating. Can't think of anything else right now :lol:

    My homestay are nice! I'm currently with my 4th family (moved here 2 days ago). None of them have been strict. They make me meals and let me get on with my own stuff. School is quite busy, so I usually only get home at about 7 everyday.

    They are yes! I think people are more into the actual manga though, since it's easier for highschool students to find time to read than it is to sit down and watch a whole episode of something. They bring boxes into school with manga books which they leave at the back of the classroom, and everyone reads eachothers and shares them around.

    I go to an all boys school haha :P
