- You can click the three dots to the far right of the like button and select “Open Transcript”. That will show the entire script and allow you to click on a line to replay that section of the video!
- You can slow down the video if that helps you understand the speech better.
- If you can download the video and subtitles, you can put them into Voracious and even more easily repeat sections, create flash cards etc.

I basically just got this idea in my head that I thought I’d check if anyone is actually interested in…
There’s a bunch of youtube videos by popular Japanese Let’s Player 弟者 that people have added Japanese subs to…
Since I like him quite a lot, and since I’ve always enjoyed watching videos as listening practice/relaxation and I thought that maybe if people were interested this could be some kind of book-club-alike activity for those wanting to get into these kinds of videos. (The subs may make it easier to actually post stuff and talk about what they mean, maybe?)
I haven’t really thought any of this through, but a few benefits that come to mind are:
- You get exposed to more colloquial Japanese
- You learn some gaming lingo
- Sentences in Let’s Play videos are often a lot simpler than in movies or TV shows.
- You get to listen to that sweet, sweet 弟者 voice
Some reasons it might work less well
- The only series I found that had subs for every single episode was Little Nightmares (which I like, but not everyone might?). Still, even subs for a few episodes might work as a starting point.
- Maybe these kinds of things are better suited to just reading?
