Watched over Christmas:
The Boy and the Beast. Fun mismatched duo coming of age story. The kids enjoyed it and so did I.
Your Name. One of the highest grossing Japanese films last year, apparently. Slightly odd (to Western eyes perhaps) low key romantic story of adolescent body swapping between a Tokyo boy and a country girl, with time travel thrown in. The story is skilfully told. Beautiful animation. The kids were a bit nonplussed at the ending.

Both of these are free to watch on Amazon Prime TV.

Summer Wars. Completely brilliant, absolutely bonkers, and a massive hit in our house. Think Japanese anime teenage romance/family comedy (pretty girl convinces awkward computer nerd to go home with her in the college holidays to pretend to be her boyfriend, in order to get her family off her back) set in the countryside, combined with a Matrix/Neuromancer type story, where the Earth needs to be saved. Fantastic animation. Best anime I have seen for a while.

Just finished Recovery of an MMO Junkie, 12 episodes. It is about two people who meet as characters in a game & fall in love.

I have watched quite a few anime since my last post. Lupin series 4 & in the midst of series 5. Another Lupin title, this one about Fujiko Mine; a short series, about 12 or 13 episodes.

Enjoying Black Clover & My Hero Academia, but these are relatively new series, and not enough content is available for my voracious appetite. :( Started My Hero Academia on Adult Swim, then continued on Crunchyroll. about 60 episodes currently available there.

Not anime, but watched a few Ultraman series on CR; currently watching U Mebius.

Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches So far, the guy accidentally kissed a girl as they both tumbled down the HS stairway, & they switched bodies. :LOL: I think there was a Disney film decades ago, in which the mom & daughter switch bodies; I never saw it. This series is fun!

Just started watching SOUTHPARK on HULU. I really enjoyed the parody of Star Trek's DAGGER OF THE MIND. There was also an episode that had a red shirt kid meet the fate common to many similarly attired guys. :ROFLMAO:
