It’s June, and that means certain grown-ass people will be throwing a conniption fit over everything and everyone. But for us here, that means only one month until Anime Expo, and also a bit of a lull until then, so we’ll be spending the month looking around for some interesting stories to talk about. In this case, said stories of interest include a strange revelation of a Death Note MUSICAL, a look at the manga and novel sales numbers halfway through the year, a not-great update on Kodansha’s FUBAR manga app, some smaller convention panels worth going over, and a frank and honest discussion over a recent episode of Oshi no Ko – it may not be for everyone, though.
At least there’s always the old standby of laughing at attempted plagiarism again. Everyone enjoys that.
