April means many things to many people, but in this case it means the end of the winter season and a long list of announcements to talk about from AnimeJapan, in which there were plenty – for good and bad – to go along with the usual rundown of Netflix projects getting revealed and dated, a small bit go house-cleaning of the winter season, an assessment of some good and awful April Fools shenanigans, and maybe, just maybe, some cursed energy sprinkled throughout. All very sudden and all unwarranted, as well.
No, we will not be talking about THAT thing. But yes, we will talk about the thing of a certain “final season” next time.
