In order to boost listening comprehension, pick up new vocabulary, and the like, I've been trying to find Japanese movies and shows that I can watch and study, preferably with Japanese subtitles instead of English. Netflix is sometimes helpful in this regard, although Korean titles seem way more abundant compared to Japanese. I did luck out with a site called Animelon, which provides subtitles (in English, romaji, kana, AND kanji no less) for anime of varying popularity.
But I'm also a fan of Studio Ghibli, and I haven't had much luck finding any Japanese movies of theirs. And the issue with anime is that... well... they don't always speak like normal people.
I guess my question is, where does everyone get Japanese media to study from, if they do?

Ive been watching japanese shows on myplanettv the more I watch content the more I pick up and learn. It offers over 80 channels of content and there is a lot to choose from, Netflix is good at times. Good luck
