In the news, Crunchyroll wants to bankroll its own anime, and we are back from ConnectiCon! Our GeekNights Book Club episode on Dune will be next Thursday, and our next con is PAX West!
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about a BUNCH of anime and manga news. Revolutionary Girl Utena is getting a new manga chapter, we are restarting GeekNights Presents Utena in July, Otaku culture in Japan is evolving, both Pluto and Patlabor are getting new anime, Pikotarō (of PPAP fame) is getting an anime, Anime Expo is bumming around for free translator labor, The Project A-Ko sequels are licensed yet again, Irresponsible Captain Tylor is getting a new anime series (and there are legitimate worries about its quality), and Kemono Friends is going nuts.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic, must-see Your Name (君の名は。), Makoto Shinkai's greatest work to date and one of the biggest anime movies ever made. In the news, Kemono Friends is shockingly popular, selling out its popup store, and Toho is having a fantastic year in no small part due to Your Name.

In the news, the Dragon Half manga is coming to America, the new Little Witch Academia is a (great) reboot of the original, and Yowamushi Pedal has a new season.
Tonight on GeekNights, for some reason, we do a versus trivia challenge. No, for real, that's what this show is. In pretty big news, Netflix now has an offline mode, and this is game changing in ways you may not realize, and Nintendo theme parks are coming.
