Learning japanese: looking for a “better than pimsleur” method

Hello and good day to you.

I a questions regarding learning japanese language and need some advice:

Can you recommend a studying method that is more efficient than "Pimsleur Essential Japanese" (audio course)?

I've been studying japanese using "pimsleur essential japanese", and I come to conclusion that it is not as good as I'd like it to be. Pimsleur is one of the best courses I saw(or heard), and it is good for learning how to correctly pronounce and construct sentences. The big problem is that pimsleur doesn't teach many words (3..5 words per 30 minutes), plus in some cases there are plenty of unnecessary repetitions (most people that watched anime don't need to repeat "daijobu" 15 times to remember it). I'm nearly at the end of 2nd course, and at this point I suspect then even when I finish all 3 courses, I will be able to speak only in very specific situations. So, is there a better (ready-to-use) course that is more efficient than pimsleur? Something that teaches more words at once? Or are there better study methods you could recommend instead of pimsleur?

Any advice will be appriciated.
