Anime Expo: Canceled. Otakon: Canceled. EVO: Canceled. But it’s all for the best as we try to keep one another safe in these strange times. I’m thankful to all the organizers for making the right choice, and I hope to see you all at conventions eventually. In the meantime, I find myself trying to make the most of my time spent at home.
Thank you to all my supporters on Patreon again this month, especially these fine folks below.

Blog highlights from April:
Their Problem is Our Problem: The Promised Neverland, “Coronavirus,” and the Systems that Force Inequality
The Promised Neverland brings the fury as it asks readers to think about the world around them.
When Comedy Goes Nuclear: Spy x Family
This popular new Jump+ manga is probably going to be the next big hit. I highly recommend it.
Eureka Seven, Holland, and Fujiwara Keiji
My tribute to the recently deceased voice actor who brought his A-game to every role. If you want to see my Top 10 favorite anime roles of his, I also wrote something up for Apartment 507.
Chapter 27 is, at last, the big performance…with a dash of possible romance.
My Favorite (?) Anime Computer Games
It is what it says, sort of?
I’m nobody special when it comes to giving advice, but I hope everyone can enrich themselves and stay sane in these crazy times. As for me, I’m finding great joy in AI-generated memes (like the one you saw at the top of this post), and incredibly dumb and hilarious #partyparrot memes. (The joke is dicks.)
