This Month in Ani-Gamers ~ January 2009

To subscribe to these posts through our email newsletter, click here.

Hey there, welcome to the first “This Month in Ani-Gamers” post. Unlike our previous column, “This Week in Ani-Gamers,” I’ll now be posting the latest stories on a monthly basis, along with some editorial commentary on where the site is headed.

On to business. In January, Ani-Gamers kicked off its first month of the year with a high concentration of editorial content like reviews, columns, and features. We announced our Top 3 Anime, Manga, and Games of the Year, and even talked about our favorite titles in the two-part Ani-Gamers Podcast #011 (part 1, part 2). Rounding it all off, Ink finally posted his second Otakudemia column, providing a brilliant look at Speed Grapher‘s noir themes. And yes, there was some big news, such as the announcement of the Cowboy Bebop Hollywood movie and the call to arms for Kamina as MTV’s Baddest Badass.

In the future, Ani-Gamers will be moving toward a slightly more opinion-based model, meaning that we will balance our simple news posts with some more opinion content such as reviews, critiques, and columns. Will news go away? Of course not! How will our readers stay up-to-date with current events in geekdom without reading our site? Actually, don’t answer that one.

Anyway, the Super Bowl party is getting started around here, so I’ve gotta take a break from blogging to pretend that I care about any football game that doesn’t feature the Devil Bats. In the meantime, check out the month’s posts after the break.
