Can you feel the summer air? Here in the state of New Jersey, things are finally looking "summer-y" after a few weeks of torrential rain and bad conditions. But don't fear, beloved readers! The beautiful sunshine will not keep this intrepid editor from his keyboard! (After all, everybody knows that otaku are like vampires in that we burn in sunlight. But we're also not sparkling pretty-boys, so I guess we're not vampires in the modern, post-Twilight sense.)
But what about discussion of things you actually care about, like this site? This month marked Uncle Yo, Ink, and I all attending AnimeNEXT, which would have been super-exciting if we ever got a chance to stand in the same room together. That convention report is coming soon, but while we're on the topic, I also posted my report on the Sakura Matsuri this past month. It was late, but I'm pretty proud of the result.
We've been a little light on the reviews lately in favor of publishing a greater variety of articles, such as our E3 coverage, which was written completely based on second-hand reports, but which is nonetheless filled with interesting insights. If you prefer one particular type of article (i.e. reviews, editorials, news), be sure to let me know and I'll make sure that we publish more of it. We are, after all, here to serve you, dear reader.
But the question remains: What is going on next month? Well, as luck would have it, the month of July contains within its bowels (ew!) one of the largest anime conventions in the country, Otakon. I will be attending for the first time, and will be joined by Uncle Yo and Ink, as well as a number of other anime bloggers. The Reverse Thieves and some other friends will be sharing a room with me, which is sure to result in a whole bunch of crazy things that will likely be captured by my discerning podcast microphone.
Anyway, check out this month's posts after the break.
