Dangan-wha-wha? Jeremy from Anime Diet was able to sit with Danganronpa writer and director Kazutaka Kodaka for an interview. They talk about film, games, and more in their conversation.
Melodrama? Meet your queen! Digibro from My Sword Is Unbelievably Dull sets his sights on “queen of anime melodrama” Mari Okada. While the name may not spring out to many fans, her name is attached to numerous fan favorites, including Toradora!, Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and Vampire Knight.

Weekly Fun Stuff!
Last week was all about Summer Games Done Quick. This event gathered prominent speed runners to plow through the games that made and defined childhoods, like Resident Evil 3 and Super Metroid to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. This year’s event was a massive success, netting over $1.2 million for the charity.
With that in mind, we’d like to present the climactic finale: a run through per NES classic Chrono Trigger. It’s a long watch at just over 5 hours, but it’s one heck of a ride while it lasts!
