correct me if i'm wrong, bc i'm like 80% sure i am, but it's often recommended that you don't /just/ use anime to learn japanese. it's better to learn the basics from a class or app like this. then try reviewing it with anime, like you hear a certain word and then you read the subs and say, "oh right, i learned this word before!" i feel like it's a good way to remember previously learned words that are more difficult to remember.
I was confused as well, but found this explanation on stack exchange:
Don't know if it's a coincidence or every Japanese course starts with the sounds i, ni, and chi but... I like the fact that some of the first characters introduced by DL resemble Latin ones so it's easier to memorize, e.g. Chi looks like a 5, n like a Latin n, yo kind of looks like yo (or jo) when you tilt it to the left.
Я хочю говорят по японски и понимаю. Это очень хорошо! Please excuse my lousy Russian;
It will be so thrilling when I can comunicate with so many more people in their native languages -In Every Aspect!
I am glad there are so many anime fans; however, my purpose is to bring our global village together for all as well. ཐུག་ཇི་ཆེ།
