Mangajin was created in the early 1990s as a monthly English publication for students of the Japanese language. Unlike most textbooks that focused solely on teaching people Japanese through boring vocabulary lists and dialogs, Mangajin was unique in that it showed readers a page of manga and then a page of English translations. As great of an idea that this sounds today, it didn't catch on in the '90s and Mangajin ended in 1997. Now manga in America is as popular as ever, which is why I have decided to put Mangajin onto this web site. Fans of Japanese manga and who are looking to learn Japanese will undoubtedly find Mangajin very useful!
