Yeah, I did quite a bit of transliteration when I was learning the Greek alphabet at school, but I haven't had so much success with it here. Partly that's because of the different syllables, so you have to be a bit creative with words from foreign languages (e.g. "star" is spelt "su-ta").
I did go through various words from manga/anime a while back, and as I get more practice writing sentences I'm sure that will help, but there's the initial hurdle of needing to learn the words before you can write them down, and equally wanting to be able to read the words in order to learn them.
