Hi again, still don't know if I'm going to be able to go on exchange but I've "finished" Genki and Tobira and have started on "An Intermediate Dictionary of Japanese Grammar". I've decided to start pure, or almost pure immersion in the summer so I was wondering if anyone has a good list of things for people at around N2 level that are actually REALLY easy to understand, meaning like 90-95% understandable whether through actual knowledge or context (without looking anything up).
I've tried Googling and people are either saying "read anything!" or listing stuff that isn't actually easy to understand. After Tobira you can still only understand like 60-70% of a news article and you know basically zero slang, for example.
Here's what I've found so far myself, I'll try to remember to update the list when I find more:
(last update: 2017.03.09)
Inuyasha, Pokemon (first season), Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
Planet of the Beast King seems relatively easy
Manga: (1-3 unknown words per page on average)
(I actually have a lot of specific titles written down but they're all really boring, so I was hoping for something more interesting.)
.hack// (specifically, parody mode in the original 4 games; 1/2 voice acted)
Ni No Kuni (3DS, 1/2 voice acted, furigana)
Animal Crossing New Leaf (furigana)
Dramas (dialogue = exactly like in anime)
Horror movies (so long as they don't involve police investigation/legal talk)
Vlogs and Let's Plays (especially when done by teenagers)
Street interviews (when the interviewer is a foreigner with a bit bad Japanese so the Japanese people respond in a bit simpler way)
Books / Light Novels: (1-3 unknown words per sentence on average)
徒花の契り - free BL visual novel for android(?) set in the Edo era, no voice acting
Also, if you have anything you think I should really read before a potential study abroad to Sendai, whether in English or Japanese, grammar book or fact book, please let me know!
