Stick to listening material that uses more "everyday vocabulary". Things like dramas or newscasts. Anime won't exactly be good for listening comprehension because the words they use are often nothing you've studied.
They're either specific to the genre (lots of temple/religious words, for instance),
made up words (lots of sci-fi anime have tons of made up words, just like sci-fi shows/movies in english *flux capacitor* hehe)
Or archaic (the equivalent of having fantasy characters speak with thee's and thou's)
If you already have a big vocabulary and are still having comprehension issues, that's out of my element. Hope someone else stops in with more tips.
