It’s the last month of 2019, and that has me feeling all sorts of things. As I look at how much has happened in my life since 2010 (mostly positive) and where the world has gone (a mixed bag, to say the least), it makes me want to keep contributing however I can to making the world a more fruitful place for discussion. This means encouraging dialogue and debate when it is in good faith, but also keeping an eye out for when goals or motivations are less than charitable.
While it’s a bit of a cliche to say that December is a season of giving, I hope that at least some of that holiday spirit is made real—not because it’s “supposed” to be that way, but because want to make it so.
Speaking of giving, I’m grateful for the generosity of my Patreon and ko-fi sponsors, not only those named below and those who remain anonymous, but anyone who has ever thought Ogiue Maniax was worth a few dollars here and there.

Highlights from November:
My review of the first G-Reco compilation movie. Stay tuned for more Anime NYC 2019 coverage in the next week or two!
Why I think the approach to the world-building of Splatoon is so great.
It’s been twelve years of this sucker, and I hope to keep the engine roaring.
Chapter 22 makes me want to cheer on one of the new characters. I hope to see more of Mai!
It’s long past October, but it doesn’t mean we can’t keep talking about Halloween (as long as it’s anime-related)!
December is going to be full of reflective posts and ones trying to look into the future. I hope to see you all in the years to come.
