Otakon is this month! With guests like the director of Eureka Seven, JAM Project, and more, I’m unbelievably hype for this year’s convention. If you happen to spot me at the con, feel free to say hello.
Thanks to all of my Patreon sponsors!

I want to talk about Twitter for a bit. In the past, I’ve never really had any of my tweets go wild; the most successful one I had for the longest time was this:
That was almost two years ago. But all through July, I’ve been hitting it out of the park in ways I hardly expected. I was never good at the social media game, so seeing my tweets go viral again and again is hard for me to wrap my head around.
Have I figured something out? Only the future knows…
Anyway, here are monthly post highlights:
Gattai Girls 6: The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Jeanne Fránçaix
After three long years, it’s finally the 6th entry in Gattai Girls review series! I look at mecha anime starring female robot pilots.
Pre-Evo Thoughts: Video Games vs. Chess Analogies
Gamers love to say that their favorite game is comparable to chess. But couldn’t we think through the analogy more?
Bootleg Products and the Defiance of Value
Bootleg stuff is often either demonized or written off as harmless, but what effects does it have on a fandom’s ability to grow itself?
Aikatsu and the Power of Not Running Jokes into the Ground
The Aikatsu !posts continue! This month, I look at how great the humor is in this series. You might think I’m being paid by the creators or something, but it’s just that my biggest patron is a huge Aikatsu! fan!
Return to Genshiken
Return to Genshiken: Volume 4 – Ogiue Descends
Ogiue’s finally here! Starting this volume, I’ll be using the Japanese books along with the English ones for my re-reads.
Hopefully the next Gattai Girls post won’t take nearly as long. I’m waffling between… Patlabor and BBK/BRNK. What do you think?
Anyway, see you at Otakon!
Patlabor sounds good. I assume you’d be writing about Noa Izumi?
