speed yes, but knowledge.... i think not, most of the sub are simple words, and sometimes it's sentence construction is really a bleeder.....

i use to be a really slow reader. so when i first started watching anime, i had to stop like or go back a couple of times during an episode to be able to read it all. but before i realized it i did have to stop anymore. so yeah it helped me a lot. oh and now i can pick out grammar mistakes a lot better and quickly think of the correct grammar in my head cuz of many translation are exactly perfect...

I don't think so. I spend so much time reading books, either for school or for pleasure, that simply reading a low though subtitle doesn't really help train at all.

Although I'm reminded of a particular scene from the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mady cartoon:


"Can you really understand that thing, Grim?"

"No, I'm just really good at reading subtitles backwards."

The only anime i ever had trouble reading the subs was Zaratobi sensei (sp). 3 different conversations at once. i watched 2 episodes cause my friend recommended and i just died.

Also i feel that reading subs has given me a grasp of japanese. Cause i can see what the word means and if i hear it enough then i can fiqure it out. Can't hold a conversation but don't need subs ever once in a while.
