Hey dude, my mum finally got back to me re: the Learning Japanese links. She said that she hasn't taught the language in a while so does not have them any more. But she did say the JLPT learning material is very useful. Especially the audio tapes to so you can learn how words are pronounced and such (you will need to do some basic reading first before you can get into the audio tapes though)
hey Wolfwood, I love the thread for tips on the S rank. I didnt see this tidbit in your posts, but I think it would be helpful to emphasize that each thing you are ranked on time, zandatsu, kills, etc.) caps about a 1000 points each, now I do not know what the minimum for each is but i'll see how low they can get before they drop to an A rank, the minimum for a S battle I just had was 5400, and I had a 100 hit combo on the two choppers. Additionally, I like using my sai to chain combos. Im playing through a second time on easy now to get the collectibles.
