back then the cover was dark blue made with the same material.
anyway, the book itself is perfect for any learner. getting this and basic japanese verbs is perfect as you can look up verbs then look up their conjugations if you don't know how it's done already. i recommend for anyone studying on their own. i also recommend a furigana dictionary for learners as well.
the size of the font may be a problem for some but it is worth a buy.
The Langenscheidt dictionary is about the best Japanese-English dictionary I have seen. It has very relevant vocabulary (including words I could not find in the old one), and includes the kana/kanji form of the word for easy reference. I also like the blue word headers used, which makes thumbing through easy.
I own another Langenscheidt dictionary for Latin, and I find that I like the way Langenscheidt binds their books. It makes them last much longer, especially if you're a heavy user. My old dictionary was gradually falling apart from heavy use.
Serious students of Japanese, or professionals can't go wrong if they invest in this dictionary. Good luck (ganbatte kudasai)!
But to make up for these losses are the most random obscene words that you wouldn't think to find in a dictionary! I love it!
It's the only dictionary I've seen that has "sexual frustration" and "that's f*cking stupid/brilliant" on the same page. ^^
A must have for any fan of anime that is interested in the language. It's helped out quite a few times when watching anime or anything else to do with japan.
It's perfect to tuck away into a travel bag: the size is nice and small and it has an outer cover that's made of a flexible plastic material so it can bend easily.
The new addition is that the words are now in blue (vs the older dictionary which has them in black).
I would highly recommend the Langenscheidt's Japanese or Korean dictionary for anyone studying the languages or for those who want a quick reference while traveling!
