Anpanman to Asobo it is like Brain Age for kindergartners

Asuma Entertainment has an interesting idea on how to use the Anapanman license, make an educational game for kids. Anpanman to Asobo: Aiueo Kyoushitsu is a touch screen game where you practice drawing kana and identifying objects with flashcards. Anpanman voices the game to help young players learning to read write the correct words. While Anpanman to Asobo is clearly designed with children in mind, I wonder if it can be used as a tool to teach people elementary Japanese. It might not make you fluent, but this could be a decent alternative to dry language tapes and hiragana workbooks.

  • Great !!! It’s a real dream come true for me. That’s what a DS is good for. I hope it will reach europe but I think it will be very very hard. The first step to learn basic japanese writing, having fun.

    Thanks for this article.

  • Wonderful, this is what we need when we start to learn Japanese. Same way as the kids. Not like most of those other Japanese language games where you learn Kanji and already need to know alot of Japanese. I think this game might just the perfect difficulty level for my skills.
