Deca-Dence

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the recent Deca-Dence anime. (Don't worry: no spoilers). Don't read anything about it until you watch it. It takes... a turn. We Judged that this show was probably OK, but wouldn't be in a rush to check it out unless people started talking about it. And talk they did.

In the news, Katsucon 2021 is cancelled, Beastars 2 is coming January 5th, Venus Wars is getting an English re-release, Discotek is releasing a 4k UHD Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro, the Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town anime looks cute, and Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian dropped a trailer.

Extra Olympia Kyklos

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the Extra Olympia Kyklos anime. It's kind of fantastic. In the news, Kipo's third and final season is live, Lupin III: The First will be available digitally December 15th, and you can help save the Museum of the Moving Image.

Devilman Manga and Gibiate Anime

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Devilman manga, which Scott finished, and Gibiate, which Rym has started watching. In the news, there are a bunch of online anime conventions that people aren't paying enough attention to, KissAnime is finally dead, a ton of older family/children's anime is coming to Youtube free to watch, and a book of essays on Leiji Matsumoto is coming.

BNA: Brand New Animal

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the hot new Trigger anime BNA: Brand New Animal. It's another anime that saved anime, and it's definitely worth watching! Our friends over at the Gay Breakfast podcast consider it from a Queer perspective.

In the news, Cheetos ain't worth it, Gary Larson returns with more of The Far Side, and the Slayers light novels are getting an English release! Also keep an eye out for us appearing at the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo!

Online Anime Cons are Rough

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider how hard it is for an online-only anime convention to succeed (compared to nearly any other kind of convention). In the news, Annecy Online is still going, A Whisker Away is on Netflix, Scott has finished reading Lone Wolf and Cub. Black lives matter. Donate if you can.

Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the uninspired Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 anime on Netflix. It's... a show. Honestly, you're better off just dusting off your old Stand Alone Complex DVDs. In the news, Black Lives Matter, racist status are getting pulled down the world over, DC Comics ends its relationship with Diamond Distributors, and Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts is a decent kids' show.

Beastars

Tonight on Geeknights, we review the Beastars anime. It's pretty great. If you're looking for a dark psychosexual thriller that somehow evokes both Revolutionary Girl Utena and Sanctuary, this is the show for you! In the news, Japan Post has suspended international mail to many countries, if the Olympics are delayed past 2021 they will be canceled instead, Diamond Distributors plans to resume operations on May 20th, Ducktales season 2 is pretty good, and Tomm Moore's highly anticipated Wolfwalkers is still coming, but it might be an Apple exclusive stream.
