    Nominations Out for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards

    I went for Keep Your Hands Off, but honestly I think that and potentially Great Pretender are the only ones that deserve it among that batch. Personally I think Deca Dance should have been in there...

    What manga are you reading now?

    Blank Canvas: My So-Called Artists Journey volume 5 (completely) - Definitely enjoyed the last three volumes more than the earlier ones. It feels kinda mean to say that about an autobiographical series though... Mapping: The Trash-tier Skill That Got Me Into a Top-tier Party volume 3 (LN) The...

    Favourite BD/DVD extras

    Books! I love booklets with interviews or artwork especially since if I've gone to the effort of buying a CE I must really love that show already. :)

Last year I enjoyed Slime, Given, O Maidens and a few Jump adaptations but not a lot made my 'I need to own this right...

    Anime UK News Review of 2020 Part 2: Anime

    Yeah I admit, I liked Eizouken but with series like Deca-Dence and Kakushigoto, it just isn't good enough to stay memorable beyond the animation. I probably would watch it again, but not in as much of a rush. Also Netflix not releasing Great Pretender's second half until fairly recently means I...

    Apparently the region locking is a mistake. I've seen them acknowledge it on Twitter before and say they're going to fix it... so hopefully someday? :p
