Watching over and over is fun too, I sometimes miss things the first time around especially when they talk really fast but the second and third time it is easier to understand.
When I import a Blu-ray from Japan, I always watch an episode twice one with subs and the second time on Blu-ray without subs. In other words, I do exactly the same compare to when I was learning English. Now I need to add the studying part. For that, I want to wait to have the energy to give always my 100% on studying Japanese.
