I'm the simulcast writer, and write the Otaku Theater column. I also occasionally write other little things here. It all started at age 12, with Sailor Moon. My tastes changed over time to fantasy shows and slice-of-life. I do understand that there are other things in life, though. For me, it's Overwatch, Splatoon and Formula 1. As the only Brit in OASG, I am probably the most cynical, although that is questionable.

I've broken my first resolution already. This week’s offering will be a long one since I have a lot to cover. Technically, Takunomi hasn’t been dropped; for some reason, I was unable to access it on HIDIVE on the day it was actually...

Rest In Peace, Anime Strike. The year has only just started and already we have some anime news. Anime Strike is now no more, and all of their shows will be put straight onto Amazon Prime Video, thereby removing the double paywall that US fans...

Justin and Neomo end their 12 Days of Anime project by looking back on what anime made the big screen in the West this year. Justin: Outside of Ghibli releases, finding anime films in theaters wasn’t supposed to happen. Short of premieres...

Neomo started reviewing classic/out-of-season shows for TheOASG in 2017. He talks about how this year has influenced him to keep watching the classics. I suppose you could call this final solo post of this 12 Days project of ours a little look-back...

Neomo talks about a topic that came up in the UK anime community this year. Some people would see compensation for paneling at an anime con as a sort of given. People who actively put in an effort to produce a presentation on their favorite...

Neomo looks at two shows this year that raised some eyebrows concerning how school kids fall in love. I tend to despair often when I see anime romance shows (both comedy and drama) where ecchi, tsundere girls, clueless guys, idiotic male best...

TheOASG will soon be bought out by Disney. This week has been dominated by Disney now owning pretty much everything now. Crunchyroll will no doubt be next, and then the studios themselves will come later…but now is not the time to worry...

Neomo takes a look at the dragon family that captured our hearts. Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid turned out to be a major success story both in Japan and the West. We love the believable relationship Kobayashi and Tohru develop in time....
