Learn English With Manga

Toy and card manufacturer MegaHouse is to release a set of card for anime fans who want to learn English. "Gundam Seed/Destiny" and "Bleach" are two of the most popular manga/anime series of recent years, and MegaHouse will release a set of cards for each that uses visuals and lines from famous scenes to teach English vocabulary. The English content of the cards, which are aimed at junior and senior high school students, was compiled with the cooperation of major eikaiwa school operator ECC. The cards also come with a red see-through overlay card to allow students to check their memorization of keywords. The Gundam cards retail at ¥357 for a set of 10. The Bleach set has 31 cards, 30 of which have English, and sells for ¥1050. Both go on sale at the end of July.
