Tonight on GeekNights, we review Umamusume: Pretty Derby. It's... OK. It has some problems. It's basically on one end of a horse-girl anime spectrum. In the news, Boston's nerd convention security problems (the primary reason we stopped performing at Anime Boston despite it being one of the best anime cons in America) continue, AnimeNYC is coming again this year, Bee and Puppycat is getting a second season co-produced by OLM, and Otaku Coin is something to avoid.
The GeekNights Community Forum is pretty great, and you should join it!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the charming Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku. We "reviewed" it previously in our Judge Anime by its Cover series. In the news, the worst Lupin III - The Legend of the Gold of Babylon - is getting a bluray release and a new dub, Fireworks is coming to theaters, Locke and Key is likely to be on Netflix, Netflix is making comics now, and we'll be reviewing Made in Abyss soon!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the recent Netflix x Sanrio hit Aggretsuko. In the news, Marmalade Boy live action, Stan Lee's lawsuit against Pow! Entertainment, Rym returning from TCAF, and Rick and Morty getting picked up for 70 more episodes.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Ed Piskor's X-Men: Grand Design. In the news (after we talk about biking to work and double-decker elevators) Hasbro acquires the Power Rangers and Made in Abyss is a pretty good anime. GeekNights will be live at Zenkaikon, and you should read Emily Wilson's translation of The Odyssey.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Masaaki Yuasa's wonderful Lu Over the Wall. It's an anime movie that you definitely should make time to see. In the news, we'll be watching In This Corner of the World soon, we are reminded of the era of the APEX DVD Player, and Adventure Time is coming to an end.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the unique and notable Pop Team Epic. It's the distilled loss-edit WarioWare micro-parody anime phenomenon that probably invaded your social media for a little while. Rym seems to like it. In the news, The Sandman Universe is coming, anime is mainstream, which seems to bother some people, and we'll be live at PAX East!
