Mirai-chan is the virtual idol that will be teaching you the basics of learning Japanese and today we take a look at the first video which is about learning Hiragana. The video will teach you what Hiragana looks and sounds like - do try to remember them all!
Hiragana have a particular stroke order but if you are in a rush to learn as much Japanese as possible (like I was), then I recommend to forget about learning the stroke order - I personally feel that if you can write the characters so that they are recognizable then you should get by like I did.
Visual effects and animation is done by Tony Lymboura, 3D Engineering by polygon bangcho at Nitroplus and final cut editing/production is done by me ^^;
Mirai-chan finally has a voice which is done by an up n coming seiyuu Utaco. The Japanese learning videos will feature Utaco's cutesome voice but in the anime we will hear her is-going-to-kick-7-shades-of-poo-out-of-your-gut voice.
And Mirai finally gets a personality too as follows:-
Hmmm, she almost sounds like Nanami-chan ^^; I guess that's how I like my girls?
Might as well mention it now - keep your mince pies peeled for any up n coming anime titles for cameo apperances of Mirai-chan ^o^
Anyway, back to the topic. How many of you know the complete set of Hiragana?
