My sister has been watching Spy x Family, and she says it’s great. I can’t watch it because I let my Crunchyroll subscription expire, and most of Crunchyroll’s simulcasts are subscription only now.

Still struggling to get through Sky Island in One Piece. This arc has been a bit boring, but I know next level One Piece starts right after this. Right now I’m at the part where they just got on the Crow.

It IS great. She has good taste. So far, each episode is uploaded weekly, so if you want to binge, it's ok to wait a bit. But it's more elegant to watch it one episode per week.
I dropped onepiece a long time ago (around episode 100+). The formula was getting boring to me. It's over 100GB streamed if you want to watch it. Are you unmetered? (no monthly maximum?) Here in Netherlands, they slow you down a bit if you hog the bandwidth.
Do you think it's worth it rewatching it? (what do you thinks should be the correct spelling: Roughy or Luffy?)
Currently listening to the light novel of Mushoku Tensei - Jobless Reincarnation. The world building is quite good. And they do not introduce a ridiculous amount of new characters that you don't know who is who anymore. The problems explained are real, and the rawness hits you, while the character struggles to overcome them.
I'm also watching Familiar of Zero. After reading the fanfiction (Zero Interface) it's kind of a let down. The fanfic is better.

Im also on the Skypia Arc on the One Piece Anime now, whas a bit long until they got to this point , but this was the same whit Alabasta , and the other big Arcs .. I know that thy where also on this point when I last watched the show on German Television (whit German Voices )

This is the only thing that sucks on Crunshyroll : I have to read the subs and mix this whit the voices in my brain ..

I also watched some episodes on my Phone in the garden yesterday, but whitout the Powerbank, it sucks quite many % of the Phone Batterie..
not that I would become in trouble when my phone runs out of Batterie at all, I was grown in the 1980/90. , I know how to survive whitout a Phone ..

Worked quite good even in this sunlight, seems like not every show is that dark as Game of Thrones ..

Not Anime, but a Chinese comic: "The super doctor from 2089".
It's translated literally from Chinese into English, giving some cultural insights in how the Chinese language is spoken.
It sounds strange in English, but when I take it to Spanish, we have similarities in the usage of brother (a friend calls you that to emphasize caring for you, or to prepare you for asking a favour), uncle (basically, any friend of your parents in their generation (so older than you) is your uncle/aunt), etc.
It sounds crass in English, but you can call a friend "loca" (crazy girl), or in Dutch you can call your best friend pik (lit: pen*s) and in Spanish I had a friend I called "wretched" (and she called me that back too)

Once you get used to the way language is used, the story becomes pleasant to read. It's full of coincidences and some situations are forced shoe-horned (too unbelievable for my taste), but look over those details and the story is quite nice. With power struggles and bravado's. Got a chuckle out of me, but only a few times.
