Happy Sunday, everyone, and welcome to an all-new AniWeekly! It’s officially the dog days of summer, which means we’re hear to beat the heat with the finest from the news world and the anime blogging community!
Before we begin, though, I’d like to get a bit serious. Last week, France suffered a horrific terror attack on Bastille Day. In the city of Nice, an individual drove a truck through celebrating crowds, killing 84 and injuring 303 along the Promenade des Anglais.
Earlier today in the United States, a lone shooter killed three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We’d like to extend our deepest condolences and thoughts to the victims (and their families) of both incidents.

Weekly Fun Stuff!
Re:Zero has been getting a lot of love from the AMV community, with good reason. The show was a fantastic entry to the spring 2016 season with strong characters and a plot that just drew the viewer into the world itself. A Monologue for the Regenerator by MAD group “Tell Our Story” is a brilliant tribute to the work. The AMV is phenomenal, combining sublime editing with a fantastic musical selection.
