Edit: Aside from watching dramas, if you have access to Japanese Amazon Prime or Netflix, watching your favourite films dubbed in Japanese is another good way to practice listening skills.
That’s a good idea. Maybe I’ll try that. Do they have a Japanese dub of the Norsemen? :)

Doesn't look like Amazon has it at all (sorry, don't have Netflix).
To be honest I never heard of the series before until now and just checked out the trailer for it. Going to stick that on my download list as it looks great. :dance:

Yes, it’s so good. Made by the same guys as Lillehammer.

Aside from Itte Q there's nothing I want to actively go and watch.
ItteQ has it's moments, certainly when Imoto is being chased by some sort of creature or climbing mountains.

72 Hours can be quite entertaining as well.

Does Netflix have many Japanese-dubbed shows yet? When I had Netflix, I wasn't able to watch anything with my girlfriend because they didn't have anything dubbed or subbed in Japanese (besides anime, which she doesn't watch).
