Godzilla 2 is on Netflix. I really liked the first one. I'm not completely sure what were the reasons, but a big one was the art style I think (same one as used in Sidonia and Ajin, maybe it is from the same people as those).

Finished Your Lie in April. An amazing experience. It's without any action but manages to be engaging throughout (and depressing). I'm a bit in a black hole now, maybe I should wait a bit before starting the next show.

Thinking of indeed taking a peek at Crunchyroll's free content, e.g., for Nodame Cantabile and Yuri on ice. I see it has an Android TV app so I can watch things on a big screen. Alternatively, Netflix has added so many anime shows the past 3 months which I can delve into:
- one punch man
- those fate shows (confusing titles those have)
- B: The beginning
- Erased
- Violed evergarden
- Children of the Whales
- Charlotte
- Asterisk war
- Parasite
- Psycho pass (really want to see this but only has french subtitles)
- …
Hmm, I feel like watching some Bleach. Netflix ended with season 2, I suppose crunchyroll has the remaining 20 seasons or so.

@darth Cowboy Bebop could be described as a kind of animated firefly (or some say, what firefly could have been).

Nodame Cantabile is one of my all-time favorites. It's all about the (classical) music and the love for music. Very inspiring. If you yearn for more after watching this, I can highly recommend two live-action music-themed movies: August Rush and The Red Violin.

And for an anime series about acting instead of music, there's Glass Mask. Circus and acrobatics: Kaleido Star.

I tried Yuri on Ice once but couldn't get into it.

I actually (should) know French! It is just too much effort watching and translating

Thanks for the suggestions, better jot those Japanese titles down. They are hard to remember…

I installed the crunchyroll app. First of all bleach is not available:
"Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region."
then I was excited as I found Nodame Cantabile. However, it is not the anime version (which I assume there is) but a live action version of the manga!

Does the paid version of crunchyroll ofter more content, or are licensing limitations per region the only factor?

Paid version will not lift region restriction. On any platform.
If it says something is not available in your neighborhood, no amount of $ will solve it. Sadly, they don't want your money. Go figure.

Yes, was wondering if the free version would limit the content even more, but apparantly not.

And of course you are wrong, some amount of $ will solve it. About $12 per month to be exact, or even free if you can tolerate some quirkiness. I'm trying that latter option for a week. Seems I can watch bleach after all.

Episode 2 of AOT seasons 2 is out and I'm reading comments from people who were not spoiled certain plot points since they were revealed in the manga years ago…

It's better than actually watching the show itself.

Watch Laid-Back Camp. It is everything I want in a show. If they don't make another season I will be super bummed.
