While I'm sure that's great (and I love tons of animes) I actually find it difficult to learn Japanese via subs and dialog in anime shows. Usually what they are saying and their pronunciations of the words isn't exactly the correct or normal way to do it. For example in cute (kawaii) trends, girls in certain animes will say Desu as in (Des-su) literally. They do that to sound cute. However as most people know you don't pronounce the "u" in desu.

Not saying it's a bad idea and I'm sure people will enjoy it that way but just be careful with learning like that ;)

Yeah, I agree with you @KhaosWolf. I find that if you have subtitles in Japanese is better than English. And since it's in Japanese your not focusing on the English subtitles. Your more focused on guessing the pronunciation of certain words and identifying kanji and all of that. Also in アニメ they have a lot of slang with shortened phrases and all of that.

Um... The second symbol that you used to spell "anime" is incorrect... That symbol you use for "ni" means "two". I can't use Japanese symbols on my laptop...Yet. I'm trying to figure out how to switch between English and Japanese when typing.

ニ is the katakana for "ni" 二 is the kanji for two and is sliiightly different ニ二 though weirdly it's more noticable before I hit the submit button. In the typing box the kanji's lines are more spaced

You need to download a Japanese language pack for your PC. Then you'll be able to switch between them as you type.

I think a cool aspect of that site that somewhat counters the difficulty of learning through just subtitles/anime is that you can interact with the subtitles and you have the option of full Japanese, just hiragana, katakana or romaji subtitles as well. You can hover over individual words to get dictionary definitions, pronunciations that are automated similar to Duo's, and take vocab quizzes on the words you looked at each episode. While it's not great for grammar learning it looks really useful for vocab.

Hey guys! Is it just at me or does the Daiweeb website really not work? I mean, when I wanna watch an anime, for example "Bakuman" neithher the the first nor the other episodes won't load. It just goes black. Does anyone else have this too?

The home page loads, the episode list of the anime loads, but that one part where the episode is supposed to be doesn't load/goes black/doesn't do anything

I just tried and it was black for a moment but still worked for me. I scrolled down a bit and the loading bar was visible but stuck at 0, I clicked the pause/play button again then after a few seconds the entire video box resized itself from full screen to a smaller standard-sized player and played fine. May just be slow streaming, some video players tend to take longer than others.

I am not sure. I've been watching animes there for at leat 2-3 months, and it just suddenly stopped working for me right after I finished the last episode of "made in abyss". Since then none of the animes load. One time I even waited like 10 minutes but still just a black screen. I don't know if it has anything to do with this but I live in Hungary, maybe that's the problem? But even if it is then why did this problem begin just recently? I tried to watch it on phone, ipad and laptop but at none of them works. Any ideas?
