Weekly round-up

We know, we left you bereft of news last week. But the small matter of Christmas coming up had us both running around like headless chickens. With presents mostly sorted, things have settled down now, and we can give you a slightly bigger bitesize look at the anime updates from the past couple of weeks. Make yourselves a Bailey’s coffee (go on, the big day is only a couple of weeks away!) and enjoy.

Jeez, when will the sad news end? Inori Minase has been pushed to cancel several upcoming event appearances in Japan and Taiwan, after receiving murder threats from an unknown individual.

On a brighter note…anime revivals!

Right, that’s all the depressing news over with now! Not just Attack on Titan, but two more titanic series have been confirmed to return next year. We’re reeling over the resurrection of Code Geass, as well as Cardcaptor Sakura.

  1. Some things are more important than keeping things up to date. You are both doing a fantastic job on that department. Hopefully you will have a great Christmas 😀
