anime strike ends



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.


beginning of 2018 update

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!


anime connection database

Furuhashi despair!
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.


heaven’s feel theaters for us wide release!


Heaven’s Feel movie 1 has gotten its first batch of theaters released for the November 18 subtitled release! While there’s no confirmation that more theaters will be added for sure, there’s always the chance, so keep your eyes peeled! Luckily for me, I’ve got my old standby Kiggins Theatre, so I’ve already bought my ticket! :3 As I live in the US, I only hear about the plans for US releases, but I know that other countries are getting theater releases as well, so check your local distributor or Twitter to see if you can find info for your country!


no game no life zero us screenings


Didn’t see news on any sites about this, but Sentai’s No Game No Life Zero website has a link to US theaters now.


It seems like there are a ton of options for this movie compared to anime movies I’ve seen in theaters (Kizumonogatari, SAO: Ordinal Scale), so there might be a higher chance there’s a showing near you!
