Porco Rosso is an absolute favourite of mine. I love the "getting the plane sorted" scenes in Italy. The whole film has a wonderfully battered feel to it, yet is beautiful and rewarding to. One of Ghibli's very best.
I adored the first season... Season two on the other hand just got weird (read - pointless escalation) and I gave up on it completely.I watched the first season of Attack on Titan. This is one of those annoying series which has a promising story but mostly indifferent (and sometimes terrible) execution, meaning I keep watching it to see what happens but rarely enjoy it. It did get better towards the end though. Sadly only S1 is on Netflix, and I have to subscribe to another service to see the rest, though I'm pretty sure I could get it all watched during Crunchyroll's free trial period.
That's interesting, as I've just read quite a few reviews and many say S2 is an improvement. But anyway, I also read some slightly spoilery reviews, and it doesn't look as if the revelations are going to be worth the time investment, so I'm not going to bother.I adored the first season...

Nor me, though. I'm getting less and less patient with the way anime characters behave, such as the OTT reactions within dialogue. Anything slightly contentious, angry etc is met with the same kind of strangled gasp as though the character has just confessed to murdering their mother; anything slightly sad is met by another character saying that character's name for no reason. I can't believe Japanese people actually behave this way, and I note that Miyazaki never includes this kind of thing in his films.It might still be worth checking out to see if you like it though as I'm not the best judge of anime (not the biggest fan at all).
