Hello, readers, and welcome to an all-new AniWeekly! While we had to take last week off due to Anime Expo, we’re back in action and bringing you the week’s best and brightest!
This week, we’d like to give a huge shout-out to the folks at Summer Games Done Quick, who spent over a week speed-running games for charity. The event managed to pull in over 1.3 million dollars, which will be going straight to Doctors Without Borders. Awesome work, guys! We wish you the best in AGDQ 2017!
We’d be remiss for not highlighting the amazing Pepsiman run at the event, which is equal parts amazing and hilarious thanks to runner TheBoyks.
