I have only completed the first few lessons, and I'm in in no hurry, but I really like the approach to the language that this method is taking. Being a visual learner, I especially like the word pictures and mnemonics. Like Pimsleur, this method emphasizes spoken and conversational language, but its vocabulary is much more appropriate to a 40+ mom who won't be visiting any bars or introducing herself to any young men in the near future.
There is one male non-Japanese speaker whose Japanese is very hard to listen to. He makes mistakes and has a terrible accent. I found that frustrating. I also wish there was much more opportunity given to actually speak. Some drilling of words and phrases would be fun. Lots of information was given but little opportunity to use it.
