Episode 149 – The Springtime Convention Kickoff!

Episode 149 - The Springtime Convention Kickoff!

Well, it took a month, but all of us are back in the swing of things, and not a moment too soon either – Sakura-Con, Anime Boston, AND AnimeJapan 2023 all happened and they brought their own slew of announcements to the table for us to sift through and discuss. And to go along with that, we have another dabble in the wild world of lost media, our brief thoughts on the now-over winter season, plenty of non-AnimeJapan project announcements that run the gamut of quality, and Sentai coming out with a double-shot of dub goodness… at the cost of one title not getting a dub, sadly.

Next time, Suzume and episode 150 – what a wild ride it’s been, and we’re not stopping any time soon.
