Here we are, at the dawn of a new decade. It means a new anime season, naturally, but there’s this combined sense of wonder and dread at what might be a new era.
As we begin 2020, I would like to give the biggest of shout-outs to my Patreon supporters:
Sue Hopkins fans:
Hato Kenjirou fans:
Yajima Mirei fans:
I actually was considering giving credit to all of my Patreon supporters this time around and not just the $3.00 and above tier, but I had to take into account that some might purposely choose to remain anonymous. Just know that if you’ve helped out Ogiue Maniax in the past or in the present, no matter how much it’s been, I want you to know that I’m grateful.
Highlights from December:
The big thing on Ogiue Maniax last month was my decade in review series. You can check out all the parts below.

Chapter 23 is full of excellent humor and even better art.
The One and Only: Aikatsu on Parade! and Hoshimiya Ichigo
The queen is here! See how the current season of Aikatsu! handles the return of its original heroine.
2020 will be a tumultuous year, from American elections to the Tokyo Olympics. I wish everyone safety and happiness, and hope that we can all find both comfort and inspiration in anime and other creative experiences.
