Hello dear readers,
Once again, Happy New Year! I do hope everyone enjoyed the recent holidays, and as we head further into 2018, I’d love to hear suggestions on what you guys would love to see! As I approach the one year anniversary of AniB Productions, there is plenty in store coming- such as a continuation of the Hunter x Hunter comparison series, new show reviews, character pieces, and perhaps an episode review or two…and, I’m hoping to also again put out a piece for the Oscars when the time comes! (Here’s last year’s piece for reference.) The category for best animated film this year is not nearly as deep as some prior years, but the top looks as good as ever, and I’ll be looking to see the field again…
A new year also means new shows! Several exciting anime and Western developments should be occurring in 2018, including a season 3 of the popular My Hero Academia and hopefully another season of Made in Abyss, which I recently wrote about to start January. Star Wars Rebels will also be finishing its run after a number of years on Disney XD; and as usual, I’ll be keeping a lookout for promising new shows while keeping my other eye on those of the past worth writing about.
Finally, a big thank you to everyone who visited the site, made comments, carried on discussions and enjoyed reading the material here in 2017! It’s a terrific experience to watch dialogue and discussion unfold about the incredible world and potential of animation, and some of the insights from certain individuals who contributed consistently (you knwo who you are!) was simply amazing. I might write the pieces, but it’s you, the readers that keep me going despite life’s other busy tasks
Here’s to a wonderful 2018, from me to you,
-Christian, aka “AniB”
