It doesn’t happen every year, but this July is going to see Anime Expo and Otakon. If you’re into anime cons, this is a double-edged sword. As I get older, I’m worried I might not have the energy for both.

Highlights from June:
More love for an interesting manga, especially what it taught me personally.
The significance of Star Twinkle Precure‘s Mexican heroine.
Looking at how Smash Bros. as a “history of video games” can run up against its role as a vehicle for personal nostalgia.
Chapter 17 puts the S in Soprano.
What do you think of these symbols of budget anime merchandise?
I have two panels at Otakon this year, and I hope you’ll be able to make them. I’ll make another post closer to Otakon so that it’s fresher in people’s memories, but make sure to mark “Star-Crossed Alien Lovers…in Robots” and “Genshiken and Beyond: The Works of Kio Shimoku” on your Otakon schedules!
