I liked these better when they had beginners in mind. I miss the romanji and the explanations. I don't understand immersion when they don't explain things simply, it only slows the progress and frustrates in my experience. I learn languages very quickly, but it is the explanations that help, not teaching above your level. I really really liked the earlier episodes and was sad when the technique shifted!
