I am looking for some tv shows recommendations to watch with Japanese subtitles. It doesn’t matter if it’s anime, drama or something else.
I found while learning English that watching TV with English subtitles really helped me improve my listening and reading skills and really made a difference in fluency.
I am now at a point where I would like to start doing the same thing with Japanese (intermediate grammar and vocab level, I have no issues with hiragana and katakana and I feel comfortable with the amount of kanji I know -I reset from level 50 before so I am reviewing a bunch of stuff-).
If this method is also useful for anyone else I would like to know which shows you have enjoyed for this purpose. I liked Little Witch Academia and Komi can’t communicate.
I think these are the key points for me:
- Simple/every day language
- Enough cues from the scene that even if I don’t understand what is being said I can still follow along with the story
- Speed is slow enough for me to either understand what is being said or read the subtitles while still being challenging
Overall, I found slice of life anime is good for this but I would like to know your suggestions.
