It’s kind of hard to imagine a time when anime was hard to find. Before Crunchyroll and other streaming services, to get your hands on Japanese animation you had to buy expensive VHS tapes at the mercy of whatever American company wanted to license them and subtitle or dub English over them. In the 80s, that was virtually impossible, but by the 1990s a real market had developed here, and it triggered an exciting period of advancement and experimentation.
Attack on Titan fans in Japan looking forward to a stage play based on the ridiculously popular anime series are dealing with a rather hard blow dealt to the fandom. Unfortunately, the live theater show has been canceled after the death of a crew member has transpired. The live-action adaptation of the anime series is canceled indefinitely, since moving on after the passing of a beloved crew member is understandably hard to take for the rest of the cast.
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, the computer game/game show/cartoon that tricked an entire generation of kids into learning, is back. Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of a new animated series based on the popular early-90s computer game, according to The Tracking Board. Like previous incarnations, the new series will aim to be both entertaining and educational. If any series can pull that off, it’s this one. I can’t think of any other childhood experience that made geography so much fun.
