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.

Adventure Time: Distant Lands - BMO

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the first episode of Adventure Time: Distant Lands: BMO. It's more adventure time, and it doesn't in any way undermine or alter the perfect ending to the show. In the news, Aggretsuko season 3 is coming at the end of August, Kipo's two seasons are 100% worth watching, the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo is coming, and apparently episode zeven of Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is almost worth watching.

Also breaking news we can not wait on: the corrupt and unfit president of the United States is deploying what amount to SA Goons in American cities in a blatant fascist act of oppression. Do not ignore this.

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.

Katie Cook's "Nothing Special"

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Katie Cook's Nothing Special. It's on webtoons.com, which is a great place to find a ton of similarly good webcomics. In the news, it's easy to stream recent hot anime movies like Promare or The Night is Short, Walk on Girl, Miyazaki's next Ghibli film's production is continuing, the 23rd Pokémon movie is delayed, Sweet Tooth is getting a Netflix series, and Sazae-san is airing reruns for the first time in 45 years.

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.
