Starting over with Harry Potter

"The more people join, the better. There is a certain amount of tedium in identifying words, looking them up, and so on, and if we share that out we can get more return on our efforts.

I have text and audio, and I have just parsed the first four chapters into sentences. There are about 1500 of them, and I’ve also extracted the unique kanji. The kanji counts are as follows…

Chapter 1 – 569 kanji
Chapter 1 and 2 – 739 kanji
Chapters 1 to 3 – 893 kanji
Chapters 1 to 4 – 991 kanji

Some of those kanji are not in the joyo kanji, but the vast majority are."

Hope it's ok to add

I've been using this site recently for reading:

http://hukumusume.com/douwa/index.html

It's a collection of folktales, fairy tales, and legends.

I find the level to be a little above NHK Easy Japanese. Hopefully by focusing on stories from Japan, rather than the sections with stories from a round the world, it gives more context into Japanese culture as well.

TALK/VARIETY SHOW transcription site
https://tvpalog.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-2474.html

the person uploads the tv caption that airs with the tv program. Just click on the magnifying glass to search for your show and see if they carry the transcription to facilitate your learning.

**I use this site for london hearts, ame talk, hanseikai, tetsuko no heya, and much more!** i FOUND THE site when I searched 大往生で with quotes while watching ame talk: tachi to-ku (one of my favorite themes on ame talk)

I recommend rikai-sama for easy sentence-mining. it no longer works in firefox but it works in the pale moon browser. If you want to use the epwing capabilities (j-j dictionaries) mattvsjapan on youtube provides links in the video about MAKING srs cards
