About

This is John, the host of the Manga Sensei podcast, and one of the main content creators behind the many projects at Manga Sensei. I began Manga Sensei after years of learning and speaking Japanese because I noticed how many problems students of Japanese face while attempting to become proficient at Japanese. For many, the lack of quality learning material leads to frustration and burnout. While Japanese is a difficult language to master, half the battle is finding the proper resources to navigate the Japanese language. So, in order to equip Japanese learners with the tools necessary to become fluent in the language, I decided to make the resources myself. 

Since beginning a year and a half ago, I've brought together a small group of Japanese educators together to create quality learning materials. Together, we have managed to produce a daily Japanese grammar podcast, a weekly comic, a guide for beginner Japanese, and a blog. The Manga Sensei podcast is currently the top Japanese learning podcast on Spotify and our comic has been mentioned on Tofugu's monthly list of best Japanese learning resources (August 2018). So far, we've worked to keep our content ad free and as cheap as possible. Almost all of our content is free at this point in time. However, this means that we have been limited in how far we can develop our content.

Our goal with this Patreon page is to keep our content ad free and as cheap as possible while furthering the scale of our projects. Through fan contributions, we hope to cover the current costs of production and bring on a few more content creators to help us take on larger projects and additional podcasts. We hope to grow and expand, while providing you with exclusive content along the way! Thanks so much for all your support!
