    Japanese is a very complex language, you won't be learning it fast, or easily..
    Do you want to learn it for a practical reason, or just to watch anime and play games?

    Well... Japanese requires patience. Without time, you can't really learn any language :/

    Here's a thread with advice on kanji that you might find useful.

    Try to get the book called "Genki". My teacher at the university used it on her lessons and it was very good. Also, look at the page http://genki.japantimes.co.jp/self/self.en.html, there is some stuff that can be learned without the need of help from other people (like the hiragana, katakana and kanji).

    Hope it helps.

    Just keep in mind it's going to take years to learn and read Japanese at a fluent/translating level.

    AFAIK, Rosetta Stone is a language-learning software.

    I suggest you wait until June to start learning, then.


    Nothing is ever easy when it comes to learning something properly.
