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!
Tonight on GeekNights, is he a MAN? A DEVIL? A DEVILMAN? We consider the recent hit DEVILMAN crybaby, which has been generating surprising interest and may well be the first introduction of a new generation of anime fans to Go Nagai. Directed by Masaaki Yuasa, it's evocative of the ultra-violent OAVs of 90s US anime fandom, but with a modern sensibility. Warning: it's ultra ultra violent.
Tonight on GeekNights, beyond our review of the original Little Witch Academia short, we review the full canon of the Little Witch Academia anime. In the news, Dan Slott is leaving Spider Man behind for a different man, Aggretsuko is going to be a Sanrio x Netflix anime, and Judge Anime By Its Cover: Winter 2017 is available for your enjoyment.
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Studio PONOC's Mary and the Witch's Flower. It's not bad per se, but it is definitely flawed. In the news, there is a 12th Yowamushi Pedal stage play, and the New York International Children's Film Festival has a fantastic 2018 lineup that we will definitely be seeing.
