Happy new year, readers, and welcome to the first AniWeekly of 2016! Last year was an exciting one, where old became new, and numerous new classics were born. From Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma, to One-Punch Man and Young Black Jack, it seemed as if there was something for everybody in the lineup.

As is the custom, the new year is a time for new plans, and new resolutions. So, in the spirit of the occasion, I’d like share my resolution to everybody. In our May 10 installment of the Nerdy Talk podcast, we welcomed Otaku Journalist mastermind Lauren Orsini to the show. Near the end, we made a gentleman’s agreement to both finish a book project we were working on. Unfortunately, due to life getting in the way and an opportunity to work on a slightly larger project, I was unable to hold up my end of the bargain. So, I’m not running from it. My resolution for 2016 is to not only plan, but finish my book.

What are your resolutions, everybody? New job, finally get rid of that moldy Angel Tales DVD set? Let us know!
