While Japanese is really a pain in the ass with its three scripts (bloody Kanji driving me insane while learning it)
I stopped it before even learning Hiragana, and with Kanji I stopped after a few lessons on how to draw them. At one point I thought I'd let my computer write them and read them for me, and I'd just learn romaji, but that didn't help much. I should have went to a proper teacher I guess...

Now each time I see a Japanese text I feel sorry I'm such a lazy panda. If it was one phonetically-based script, I would have had a bigger incentive to finish learning it... Hangul appears much more attractive in that respect. I wanted to know a language with a completely different writing system, though.
