Announcement: New Feature – Landmarks

The anime industry is an ever-changing landscape, that passes through trends and fads with reckless abandon. Still, there are many shows, films, and OVAs that could be considered “landmarks.” Titles that are significant in one form or another, and contain both well-known and unknown features in their ranks. Through this feature, I’d like to talk a bit about these titles, so I’ll be devoting some space from time to time to do so. I’m still feeling this out a bit, but I’d like to give a brief commentary of the title in question, and interesting facts that tie into the feature. Anyway, I digress. I hope you enjoy this new feature, as much as I enjoy reading it!
