It was just a year ago when I was hoping the Kaguya-sama manga would get picked up for English release, now it’s getting an anime! Super exciting!
FUCK YEAH NEW TEACHER, SHOOT THAT BITCH DOWN
God, if only that would happen in real life to some of those jokers out there in the wild.
So Amazon had this thing called “Anime Strike” where you could pay to get access to anime simulcasts, similar to Crunchyroll’s service. The only problem? You had to pay for it in addition to paying for Amazon Prime. Understandably, most anime fans were extremely critical of the service, especially once they learned that Amazon got exclusive streaming rights to a lot of popular and/or highly anticipated new shows.
Well, after a bit less than a year of service, Amazon is ending it and simply merging its library into Amazon Prime! In other words, Anime Strike subscribers now save $5 a month to get the same access, Amazon Prime members who didn’t want to pay the extra money can now watch all this anime with their base subscription, and non-members now only have to consider getting Prime to gain access to the Amazon anime library instead of having to pay for both! A definitive win for anime consumers who are against exploitative business practices.
Spent 3 days in Yacolt with my friends playing board games and card games, now got a bunch more books to add to my reading list on top of the books I got last week :D Happy New Year!
I started a new page about a topic that I tend to stay fairly up-to-date on and thought it would be nice to keep around in permanent form: how anime is related to source material, and where to start on the source to continue past where the anime ended. I hope to update it fairly frequently, especially as new shows come out or anime continuations air or new English licenses are announced. I definitely don’t aspire to hit every possible anime adaptation, but I’ll definitely at least do the ones I like, as well as any requests.
Feedback is definitely welcome! I kind of just threw in information I thought would be useful, but will gladly rework things based on what seems to work and what doesn’t.
