Welcome to 2017~ I hope you all have a great year, and of course the greatest times will be with us! There’s plenty to be excited about, so I hope you’re all strapped in for a fantastic year of anime and fun and anime fun!

Crunchyroll decided to run the first “Anime Awards”, frankly just for fun – but it was pretty poorly planned out. In part, because it all took place at the end of the year, it was heavily biased towards series that aired later (read: Yuri!!! On Ice). Needless to say, reactions were pretty poor. Anime of the Year will be announced on the 28th, but based on the trend so far, we can probably predict what’s gonna take the title. How do you think they could manage it better next year, so there’s less (justified I might add) fan hate?

My personal favourite piece of news from this month is unquestionably that one of my favourite trash piles is getting an adaptation – but not quite the one you’d expect. High School Star Musical, an anime about a bunch of guys at a performing arts high school, on top of a second season, is getting a stage musical adaption. I’m such a tragic for trash and musicals and trash musicals that I just felt the need to tell you all. Has anyone else ever taken to musical adaptions of anime? There are a couple of others that I know of but they’re hard to find online owing to being live and stuff.

Speaking of odd adaptations, promotional materials have started circulating for Neko Atsume no Iethe theatrical film based on Hit-Point’s indescribably addictive game Neko Atusme. I don’t know why this exists but I’m glad it does~

ALSO MORE EXCITINGLY!!! The Yu-Gi-Oh that defined our childhoods is back! In a full length movie! The official release is the 2nd of February, but there are also advance screenings on Australia Day!

While we haven’t scheduled any major events just yet thanks to the break, keep your eyes peeled for some ~upcoming surprises~ Continue reading
