Another week, another chance for me to collect links to share. Hope you find these articles/links interesting as well as my random commentary I provide.
- Crunchyroll has a list of what Japanese anime fans are most excited about in 2018. Check out the article and let me know what you’re hyped for!
- Former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels (R) wrote an article asking the question: is anyone wrong anymore? He talks about viewpoint reinforcement and how we insulate ourselves in political bubbles. It’s worth reading.
- Zeke at Yatta-Tachi has an interesting article on Christmas traditions in Japan. As we get closer to Christmas, it’s fun to see traditions from around the globe. Check it out!
- Joanna Piacenza reports on an impressive poll where Princess Leia has the highest approval rating of any Star Wars character. Why Morning Consult commissioned such a poll, I’ll never know. But, it’s fun to see who has low and high approval ratings. For the record, Jabba the Hutt has a higher approval rating than the President.
- Eric Diaz at Nerdist came up with a list of seven necessities for an Obi-wan Kenobi solo film. I’m going to be honest – I didn’t know what to think when I heard of the article. However, after reading it, I agree 100% with every single point. Disney needs to make this film. Like now. Right now.
- As Christmas approaches I am reminded about how much I HATE the expression Season’s Greetings. So, I have to share this article with you again. Cause, it really is the worst.
- Yatta-Tachi also was able to get an interesting interview with Dai Sato, a Japanese screenwriter who worked on Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Eureka Seven. Very cool!
- Steak-umm – Why yes, Steak-Umms brand has an official Twitter account. Yes, it’s ridiculous and you totally need to follow it. Like right now.
- ThunderLee – Thunder Lee is a photographer who creates some photographic scene art of anime episodes with Nendoroids. The results are amazing. You should follow and check it out!
Music for this week is beautiful – it’s Pentatonix and Jennifer Hudson singing the hymn, “How Great Thou Art”
