I'd agree, passive learning takes quite a while. I've been watching subtitled series off-and-on for the last few years, but I'd hardly say that I could carry on even the simplest of conversations in Japanese. Then there's the issue that the language used in anime usually isn't the type of language you'd use in everyday life (unless you're watching a slice-of-life series, and even then you might want to be careful).
Anime provides a nice supplement, but it's a mistake to rely on it alone to develop basic proficiency.

although in the end the more immerse the learning the faster you will learn

True. It adds context that textbooks and coursework generally lack.

Hai

Wakateru- I know.
Sake- The drink.
Konnichiwa- Hello
Domo/Arigatou- Thank you
Baka- Idiot
Sayonara- Goodbye
Ano- Um
Aoi- Blue
Kokoro- Heart
Desu- Don't really know what it means, it's used in the end of the sentence or something...
Yume- Dream
Anata- You
Watashi/Boku wa- I am.... (Watashi for female and Boku for male)
Matte-
Yoshi- All right (It's actually Yoshi. Not yosh. You just don't hear the "i" because of how fast they say it.)
Kawaii- Cute
Ikuzo- Let's go.

And a lot more.

Only some few words but I would rather learn to read and write Japanese from a self-taught book than learning phonetic Japanese in anime.
