What older anime titles were you excited to buy (sometimes again) this year, and what titles are you looking forward to coming out in 2024? We also talk about all the memorable news stories from throughout this long, seemingly never-ending year. Hear all the silliness, strangeness, sadness, and stress of this year; PLUS the winners of the survey giveaway in this extra long episode. Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!!
