I'd say katakana. I learned both hiragana and katakana before i went on to kanji.

Me too, Katakana is so gay though :/. I really got lazy when learning Katakana cos I didn't see the point in learning a script to write *cough* english *cough* foreign words.

But, Katakana is everywhere, a lot of names in manga are in Katakana so it's best to just learn it. It's much easier to remember when you know hiragana anyway.

On readings (ones from chinese pronunciations) in certain learning books are given pronunciations in katakana. Kun readings (japanese pronunciations) in hirigana. Manga often uses katakana especialy for names and sounds. Hmm, signs often have it etc... And any words from foreign (yes mainly english) places are in katakana. Think I'm gonna make a thread about on and kun tho cuz I still dont realy understand when you use each...
