2022 has arrived, and with it comes… well, some more of the same still lingering around from last year. We’ll deal with that over time. But for the first show of this new season, we have plenty to talk about, including the sudden sale of Sentai to AMC Networks, Toonami’s premiere plan for the next few weeks, Aniplex making some interesting-slash-puzzling moves with a certain show of theirs, and the return of the original best girl: LUM IS COMING BACK with a new Urusei Yatsura anime later this year. That’s one alien we’re glad to see come to Earth, unlike Lrrr who doesn’t want to leave.
Stay tuned for our next show, talking all about the Crunchyroll Anime Awards nominations list – expectations will be grounded, as per usual.
