Welcome back to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know. Its looks to have been a slow news week in terms of major items to talk about but a massively busy week in terms of new anime announcements. I’m sure I missed some, but I made sure to list some of the majorly talks about anime announcements below. In terms of news for this week: Crunchyroll is upping its subscription price; Viz Media is calling for original graphic novel pitches for its new imprint; and KamehaCon is coming under fire after going back on its cancellation of Vic Mignogna’s convention appearance. Be sure to also check out the videos and articles below. I might be off next Sunday since I’ll be attending PAX East, but I’ll let you all know via here or Twitter if that is indeed the case. As always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment in “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. Apologies about the lack of news last week, I just realistically could not complete it in time after getting no sleep the night before. This week’s a little thin on featured articles and videos, but there are still a lot of news and announcements to go over especially in the anime area. The anime season’s coming to a close which means more announcements for upcoming shows. I haven’t captured them all, so let me know in the comments if I left something off that should have been mentioned. Also let me know in the comments if you found a particularly interesting article or video that could have been included here as well. As for highlights from this week: Adult Swim and Crunchyroll form a partnership; Netflix is releasing a ton of new anime original content; and James Gunn has been rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Check out the other content posted below and, as always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. This week’s been pretty busy for me so I’m sorry if my posts have been getting delayed, but I’m still working towards getting more reviews and articles out once I have a more solid schedule. As for highlights from this week: An anime festival in Daghestan was threatened with violence and forced to cancel; EC Comics are coming to the big screen; and tons of anime announcements are starting to trickle in. I know I probably missed some anime announcements, and I know I did not include the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid among them as there still isn’t a reliable source to confirm the announcement. Be sure to check out the videos and articles below and, as always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of Last Week in Geekdom where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. It looks like this season doesn’t have all that many romance animes that interest me, so there will be no first impressions post this time. Instead I’m going to try and focus on my manga and comics review backlog and hopefully catch up on a lot of the currently publishing series. As for news for this week: More digging has been done on the allegations against Vic Mignogna; the founder and CEO of Funimation has stepped down; and someone’s giving away a comic store in Chicago. As always, check out the videos and articles below. There’s some good ones this time. Have a great Sunday (especially to those of you trying to avoid all the Superbowl craziness like me)!
