Features

How To Use

Go to the Subtitle Character Counter page and drag one or more subtitle files onto the page.

Use Case

This is meant to count the number of Japanese characters in subtitle files so language learners can more easily and accurately log how many characters they’ve consumed. The benefit over mpv + a texthooker is that you can just log everything at once after you’ve finished a show, rather than adding up the characters from each episode. Additionally, this allows people who watch without a texthooker (for example, animebook) to log exact character counts.

Offline Use

This was designed as a one-page app, so you can simply right click the page and click “Save Page As”.
