    My Japanese class at college uses the Genki series for the intro and intermediate courses. They are random, but I like them.

    Japanese Verbs & Essentials of Grammar, Second Edition.

    Japanese will take years to learn, you'll have to do more than learn just from books.

    Sorry to go off topic, but Is there some reason why you capitalize every word that you type?

    You can read all the books you want, and take all the classes available, but nothing will ever compare to living here. Seriously - I learned more Japanese within the first month of living here than I did in 4 years of university.

    Actually, that's not precisely true.
    Being part of the staff doesn't excuse us from the rules.
    If anything, we're supposed to adhere to them more than the regular members, and lead by example.

    to return to the topic:
    I've not really looked into books on learning Japanese, but I considered trying My Japanese Coach on the DS.
    You might want to look into this, if you have a DS

    You mean Rosetta Stone. It helps a lot, but you'll have to do slow lessons to memorize it all.

    Mine was too expensive, so I pirated it XD

I don't know what edition I have *goes to confirm if the above mention book is the book he is talking about* Yep it is and its the 2nd edition. I so recommend this book. I carry with me wherever I may want to practice. Im currently trying to learn my hiragana syllables. Im hoping my college has japanese classes thought

    I just want to learn enough Japanese to be able to play...say a Japanese Pokemon game (That uses mostly common and small words). I just want to know enough to learn the ropes, (I.E, what each "Character" in the "Character Set" is and how to Read/Write words and basic concepts of basic, daily used Japanese words) I want to be able to communicate in the language but be able to learn it just by experience alone after I have reached the "Kindergarden" level of reading/writing Japanese.
