I’m riding high off of three things: recent elections defied expectations, the VTubers of holoX have just been celebrating their one-year anniversaries, and it’s been 15 years of Ogiue Maniax! It’s hard to believe each one for somewhat different reasons, but I’m hoping I can carry this joyous monentum through this month and into the eventual new year.
Here are my Patreon subscribers for December 2022! Thank you to everyone.

Blog highlights from November:
Hope and Chaos Take the Subway: Anime NYC 2022
My con report for this year’s Anime NYC. Note that it has a lot of coverage of Hololive.
I Started Reading the Saint Seiya Manga
And what a ride it is.
I reviewed a lesser-known 1970s giant robot anime, now available via Discotek.
If there’s anything to take away from this month’s tweets, it’s that Kio Shimoku loves Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise.
Looking at Akiba Maid War through the lens of 1999 Akihabara.
As with every year, I’m going to be rating the anime characters I think are the best of 2022. It is unbelievable how tough this year’s field is. I feel like the top candidates would have won in virtual every other year had they been eligible.
