I'm no longer ill. …and as the Spring shows wind down, they begin to get better. At least they’ll be ending on a high note. If last week’s Saekano Flat brought us up, then this week’s one (ie. Episode 11) brought us back...

I'm still ill, and any self-confessed weeb would say that anime is the best medicine. …well, I am not convinced, especially as this week was hit-and-miss. We’re nearing the end of this season, but it certainly doesn’t feel...

Prepare yourself. I’ve been trying to ignore UK politics (we’ve had an election) and every other recent tragedy (first Manchester, then London), but with wall-to-wall coverage on TV, it’s kind of hard. It’s times like...

Rest in peace, Nyaa. So…Nyaa Torrents got shut down right underneath our noses. Just in time for the news by Crunchyroll and Amazon Prime that it’ll be offering offline streaming sometime this year (read more about the news here)....

Bit of a mixed bag this week. Anime Expo just announced some big names. I’ve decided not to go though, as I can’t afford both AX and Dragoncon (which has become a nearly-annual pilgrimage to me now). Meanwhile, I’m still recovering...

A first for this column. Us OASG folk communicate with each other (sometimes), and it seems that this opinion was pretty much universal: Well you got me there…but it’s not like I’m mad or bitter. Come on, I always choose a...
