The Weekly Anime & Manga Discussion Post For January 12th, 2020

3 min read
The common bond between us all with anime is ever-present, however, and we've got a new week of anime, manga, novels, and simulcasts that we've taken a look at to help you discover your next favorite property.


It’s time to tear up a new year!

With 2020 underway, it’s in that fun uncertain stage as we wait for simulcasts to really get going and as Japan is still in a bit of a lull itself. We’re getting streaming pickups made just before shows go live, making for some exciting moments. In the midst of that, we have a few things you can read to tide you over, such as GB Smith’s annual G.B. Smith Presents: The Year in Streaming Anime 2019. I’ve got my annual reminder up with Five Ways To Be A Happier Fan In 2020 (And To Make Your Friends Happier Too) and Darius stepped in recently to bring out our final look back from 2019 with Thirty Years Later: Mobile Suit Gundam – Char’s Counterattack (with words from Yoshiyuki Tomino).

Don’t forget to check out our latest podcast with Fandom Post Radio Episode #67: Anime’s Best, 2019

This month, we’re looking at expanding our offerings with our Patreon push as well as the latest GoFundMe as we lost our major advertiser and are figuring out how to stay in business. We recently had a classic new Ten Years Later with Ten Years Later: Saki TV, and are looking at what to work on next!
