Another week, another chance to discuss random links or articles I found around the web. I’d like to start off by thanking each and every reader for being willing to engage in my silly roundup and I hope you all find it interesting. If not? I get it. Also, this is fairly anime/manga heavy this week – you were warned.
On to the links!
- New year, new format for Yatta-Tachi as they provide details for all the January 2018 American manga releases. Check it out!
- Eric Bailey, the man formally known as Nintendo Legend, has started a blog entitled Neural Dispatch where he will be posting fictional stories. A piece of flash fiction he wrote from a prompt last week entitled, “The Doorway” was recently posted.
- Since G-Nitro got his list in right after I shared my anime top list compilation last week, I decided to add his in this week to share his with you. It’s an interesting list – different than mine, too. Check it out.
- Funko is rolling out some Drag Race POP figures. This will include Alaska, Trixie Mattel, and RuPaul. I, for one, think these look pretty sweet. So yea, I want one. But, I like me some Funko POP! figures quite a bit.
- Crunchyroll is reporting on an upcoming anime adaptation of the web-manga Wotaku ni Koi ha Muzukashii which will be coming in April 2018. The series is about two nerdy people who find each other years later as adults while hiding their secret dorkiness from the world. Also, they fall in love. It’ll be airing on Amazon Prime.
- Nintendo 3DS game Detective Pikachu is heading west with a new, enormous Amiibo. Here’s the official trailer for the game.
- Speaking of anime – the Beneath the Tangles and Anime Feminist crew have each been watching a wide variety of anime and posting their first impressions. You can read through their archives of impressions/reviews here:
This week, let’s talk about Twitter. I’m going to recommend you follow the following accounts because, frankly, I enjoy them and hope you do too!
- Anime Feminist – Anime Feminist offers a very unique and needed perspective on anime, viewing anime from a feminist perspective. The team of people at Anime Feminist are looking at anime from, quite honestly, a very different viewpoint than I normally do which has helped me see little things I did not pick up on before. Check them out and give them a follow to see their newest articles/commentary.
- Curiously Dead Cat – This is a kind, interesting, anime Doctor. No, as in a literal PhD in literary studies who’s also a Dad and big anime fan. He provides interesting commentary on anime from that perspective. Also, he’s WOEFULLY underfollowed. So, check him out!
This week, we’ll end with the very catchy “Best Friends” by Sofi Tukker featuring NERVO, The Knocks, and Alisa Ueno. Check it out.
