    practically every variety show has subtitles. Osakians control the media here. Nobody can understand a word they are saying though so they have to subtitle it.

    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    "Sophisticated" Japanese people seem to think it's pretty low-class (since it's easy to understand and even easier to watch -- it introduces interesting/bizarre events from around the world, with Japanese subtitles and hilarious Japanese-dubbed foreign actors. Did I mention Japanese subtitles?), but that makes it perfect for us learners! There're also segments of on-the-spot talk/discussion about the reenactments, so there's your listening practice for "authentic" speech.
    I've been watching this a ton recently! I love how easy it is to understand, and there are a bunch of them up on youtube. No matter how I try I just can't seem to get into dramas and most variety shows.

    I like music shows like Hey!x3 and Music Station.

    Hurray! A fellow watcher~ :3
    I feel ya with the dramas an variety show thing. D: It was fun when I liked anime and drama, but now that I'm too lazy to get into anything it's hard to get in the practice I need.

    (Also, thank you for saving my butt! I should more considerate towards others. >.<)

    The 聖☆おにいさん manga series is hilarious. I saw a poster for the movie last year, but I haven't seen that.
    It revolves around stories and mishaps that occur when Jesus and Buddha come to Japan for a holiday.

    I still occasionally watch VS嵐 as well because it requires no understanding and is usually pretty funny.
    fucking genki
