You know, I poke fun at the Crunchyroll anime awards a lot. I really do but, sometimes me picking fun at it is just me hiding thinly veiled resentment. It’s one of those things that I just–it annoys me. I’m sure those of our followers know that we host our own anime awards and have … More Another Year, Another Problematic Crunchyroll Anime Awards
It’s Otaku Thursday yet again. Though existentially, I wonder if an Otaku Thursday is aptly named on a blog that is all otaku all the time? Today IRL it is incredibly snowy from a blizzard that came out of nowhere, so we’re bundled up inside catching up on shows.
