This began as a weird idea I had, but after talking about it in the POLL thread, it turns out that this is a fairly common method of improving listening :
Re - watching the same episode / movie many times to ingrain dialogue, grammar and pronunciation.
This thread is made for anyone crazy enough to join us, you are free to choose what you want to watch, how often and at what frequency. I’d love to hear everyone’s experiences, if they’re noticing improvements, annoyances, … So feel free to jump in and share!
What I will do :
I will take the first episode of “ダンベル何キロ持てる？” and watch it on repeat for 60 days. Once per day. To make sure I have a correct understanding of the entire episode and all it’s nuances, I will watch it in this order :
Day one : English subtitles
Day two : Japanese subtitles
Day three : No subtitles
Day 4 - 9 : Repeat Day 1 - 3
Day 10 : English subtitles
Day 10+ : No subtitles
I might also listen to it in the background when cooking / cleaning and stuff, but this will depend on how the experience goes
Starting day 10 I will also add 20 words per day to Kitsun to kick them into an SRS system. Now, if I don’t go insane from this exercise I’m curious on how it will help with my listening comprehension in :
a. This episode
b. This series
c. Other anime
d. Japanese in general

Looking forward to this!
