The wordpress anime awards 2018: Ladies and Gentlemen, the results are in!

The fans have spoken and we have listened! The results of the first ever WordPress Anime Awards are in!

Of course, it goes without saying that I’m pleased the fans recognized Yorimoi! :)

Anyhow, check ’em out and let me know your thoughts down in the comments!

Fall 2018 – Week 5/6 & Midseason review

Tsurune - Teamwork - Episode 4

So, this entry covers two weeks and is once again in the “grumpy old man goes for speed” mode…  Sumimasen!
