The reasons why to learn Japanese are a lot, I like how Lindsay summurizes those reasons in 9 reasons. Obviousely every one has his or her own reasons to learn a languages, but watching the video could help you to see if the reasons mentioned could also be enough to motivate you on long term in your japanese learning trip.

personally I am using the channel of Misa for learning Japanese, she explains really well and she speaks fluently english. One of the things I really like about her channel is her explanation in parallel to the text highlighted in different colors which gives an extremely visuel help to follow the content, especially for people still struggling about reading.
in measy languages – easy croatian
By the time I am writing this, easy croatian has not a lot of series. It is in my opinion worth mentioning though. Easy languages is a format that helped me learn languages and you could try it out. I like especially their street interviews about subjects in form of asking people about something specific, and when people talk about a specific subject the set of words used belong to the same semantic group which help reinforce our vocabulary.
This channel is active in the time of writing this article. I wanted to list it as a resource. I am going to subscribe to it to learn from the content made in a clear voice and fair talking pace and will keep an eye on it and see how it evolves.

You have a lot of content like stories, while reading you can mark words you already know just with one klick and also the words that you don´t know. the result is a neat visual result which helps you to follow your progress and learn new vocabolary. Morover if you install their youtube extension in your browser you could even import the content that you like from YouTube and learn your preferred language with the content you like the most. The following video is from the owner of the website, he is very active and makes regular videos on his channel and he shares almost everything about his language learning experience. I don´t need to mention that, if he managed to learn 16 languages untill a fluent level, it could be really very usefull to watch his videos and expecially Japanese related ones as this post is about Japanese.
