I usually go by dokupe online. I used to work for an anime production company in Tokyo, Pony Canyon. Now I’m back to just being a long time fan. dokupied is my podcast where I talk about mainly anime, manga, light novels, and industry news. And occasionally other people join me as guest co-hosts. https://podcast.dokupe.com

Gundam Info the official YouTube channel streamed 10 films to celebrate almost getting to 2 million subscribers.

Where to watch: Mobile Suit Gundam I Mobile Suit Gundam II: So…

SAO is a huge franchise that you most likely have some exposure to already, but SAO Progressive is an expanded retelling of the first arc, Aincrad, and the movie is based on that. It also mainly focuses on Asuna, rather than Kirito, as the main POV, which gives the whole thing a fresh new feel. I’m very excited to see how the Progressive movies con…
 
I don’t really need an excuse to rave about one of my favorite light novel series again, but here’s an update on it through halfway into part 4 of the story (volume 16).

I finally got around to watching the Netflix Original (a real one) anime series, Eden.
