Given that the reception to the last game seemed kind of medium, I'm a little bemused to see them doing a Shenmue anime now (perhaps the deal was already done before the game came out, as with Trigger's Cyberpunk 2077 series), but it looks very promising - I'm pleasantly surprised.

hell freezes over, Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer finally gets an anime


My body is ready (as is my supply of vintage memes that no-one references anymore) :p Correct me if I'm wrong but Planet With was based on/written by Satoshi Mizukami as well right? Need to see that one too. In all honesty I have never actually read Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer but I'm still really psyched for this cuz I've heard so many good things about the manga 😅

yes he wrote Planet With! I have all the L&BH manga volumes, most of which are very pricey these days, so now I'm starting to have those awful "maybe I should sell these before they get reprinted" thoughts.

Fingers crossed it'll be showing in my area, have had no screenings for Sing a Bit of Harmony or Belle unfortunately but MHA Movie 3, DBS Broly, SAO and Demon Slayer showed so JJK0 has a good chance I think.

I was going to buy Anti-Magic Academy.
Sure it's release date was end of January.

It's listed as March.
Am I going mad or is it delayed?

No anime nominated in the Oscars again.
No surprise there. The category is pretty much designed to keep animated films out of the best picture category and is essentially a free oscar for Disney, they've won the oscar 15 times out of 20 between Pixar, Disney and the Disney distributed Spirited Away.
