Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mob Psycho 100, which you can watch right now on the c-roll. In other news, Adventure Time is ending it's fantastic run, LeftField Media is launching a new anime con in NYC, Makoto Shinkai's new movie is doing really well so far, New York Comic Con is this weekend (and we aren't going anywhere near it), you can see Miss Hokusai in select theaters, and Anno's Godzilla is also in theaters. Also, the Mets are definitely going to win the World Series.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Flying Witch (ふらいんぐうぃっち). It's light, pretty, generally enjoyable, and otherwise inoffensive. In the news, Billy Bat nears its conclusion, the Queen Emeraldas manga is coming out in (hardcover) English, the GUNDAM movies are online for free (for now), a Mouse Guard movie is in the works, and an SDCC staffer hijacks the "Women in Feminism" panel at SDCC.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the largely mediocre anime: The Lost Village (迷家-マヨイガ-). It would be great if it were actually a parody of shows like this, but it is unfortunately earnest. Jeff Lemire's Black Hammer comes. The New York Comic Con's professional badges are as scarce as the fan badges (and that's a good thing). Change your passwords.
Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Scott have watched a bunch of different anime, but not much of the same anime. So we talk about some Space Patrol Luluco, Lupin, Joker Game, Erased (which Emily and Rym both reviewed and did some final thoughts for on the Patreon), Kiznaiver, Sakamoto, and more. In the news, Captain America joins Hydra, and the NYCC is trying something with its badge sellout problem. I guess, and
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the awful, minimum-effort exercise in mediocrity that is the Phoenix Wright anime: Ace Attorney. It's not even worth watching one episode: it's just a 100% redo of the first game, with shoddy animation and annoying voice acting. In other news, anime clubs are (surprisingly) on the rise, and it's time to renew that Crunchyroll subscription.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mamoru Hosoda's The Boy and the Beast. As with almost every anime movie we review, it's definitely worth seeing. Zootopia is fantastic, and Azumanga Daioh is on Hulu. Stay tuned for us live at Anime Boston, Zenkaikon, and PAX East!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider all of the anime we watched a non-trivial number of episodes of before just... stopping. As we plan to do with Attack on Titan whenever it starts up again. From .hack to Naruto, Kaze no Yojimbo to Ergo Proxy. It's one thing to drop a show after one episode, but after 10? 20? What drives someone to just drop a show midway?
In other news, The Boy and the Beast is premiering in the US, the New York International Children's Film Festival has an amazing animation lineup this year, Over the Garden Wall is amazing, Katsucon this weekend has one of the worst panel policies of all fan conventions, and we'll be performing at MAGFest next weekend!
