Welcome, one and all, to another issue of AniWeekly! This week’s a week of spooks and spectres, as we gear up for Halloween on Saturday! With that in mind, I hope your week is filled with tricks, treats, and as much fun as you can muster. Just be careful if you happen upon a skeleton or two!
Silliness aside, let’s get to the fun!

Weekly Fun Stuff!
