I've mentioned it a few times but thought I'd start introducing more Japanese drama's as not only are they entertaining to watch - they are also an invaluable way to start learning or compliment your current Japanese learning menu.
I love Japanese anime but much of the dialog is not really used in daily Japanese - you could get into trouble using it depending on what you say and who you say it to!

If you have not done so already, do try checking out a few drama's - you will be surprised at how fast you can start to pick up the lingo.
