So lately I have been studying with J-drama TV Scripts. My favorite drama so far is Nobuta wo Produce (野ブタ。をプロデュース). And, as many Japanese learners know, there is this awesome site for J-drama scripts called dramanote. The site looks quite dated, and you will need to know a little Japanese to get around it since there isn’t a drop of English on the site. But it’s an incredible resource to use if:

  1. you’re doing AJATT and need immersion materials. You could also mine sentences/cloze cards from the scripts.
  2. you need practice reading Japanese.
  3. you want to pair the script with audio for listening comprehension.
  4. you are looking to use native written Japanese dialogue materials in some way.

I would recommend you watch the show once through with the scripts (no subs for maximum effectiveness) before you use the audio. That way you have a better idea of what’s going on in context when doing listening practice.
