Ok, we aren’t gonna try to even excuse our output lately. With school starting up again and other interests on the side, we just haven’t found the time to post when we want too. Not to mention this season hasn’t been too exciting when it comes to new releases, so we’ll mostly be focusing on catching up to half a year of posts. As for me, i’ve gotten into a slew of older anime and even caught up to a lot cartoons (Rick and Morty, Steven Universe, Star vs the forces of evil, Gravity Falls). And to top it all off, the new year brought us the end of the most popular anime podcast, PODTAKU! It was quite the shock to see them break off as they were part of what motivated me to form this blog. But even with the lack of members, I still would like this blog to survive. We might start changing focus if necessary so that all anime are included, but for now we’ll try keeping it running the way it is at least until summer. I’ll try pushing out posts for more current shows and add posts for those from last year in between. Thanks for your patience and here’s our choices.
