Scooby-Doo

Tonight on Spooky GeekNights, we consider the classic Scooby-Doo in all his forms. And may we never speak of Scrappy-Doo ever again. In the news, Nausicaä was in theatres again, Nothing Special is something special, that Toblerone thing is because of an anime, Anime Strike's fall lineup includes Inuyashiki, and AnimeNYC is coming soon!

We'll be at PAX Unplugged, and also GaymerX East!

We released both our PAX West 2017 panel - The Rage of the Quitter - and our first new episode of Judge Anime By Its Cover on youtube! Notice it's two channels: Rym and Scott.

Ducktales (2017)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the new Ducktales reboot. It's everything we could have hoped, and you can watch the first episode legally for free! Here's hoping it's the beginning of a new Disney Afternoon. In other news, Little Witch Academia is fantastic, Giant Robo is fantastic, Ghosts of Miami has launched, Flamecon is fantastic, and the Anime News Network hasn't gotten its domain back yet.

The GeekNights Forum is amazing, and you should join it! We will be back for our 42nd PAX Panel in a couple weeks! The next GeekNights book club book is The Fifth Season!
