    “Following an investigation, Funimation recast Vic Mignogna in Morose Mononokean Season 2. Funimation will not be engaging Mignogna in future productions,” Funimation told Polygon in a statement.

    This is definitely a tricky situation that deserves careful consideration by everyone involved. I'm still researching claims and testimonials from both sides. It's disheartening, however, to see so many people making assumptions and taking sides fueled solely by emotion on social media.

    I'm currently doing a rewatch of Nichijou, a slice of life comedy! It has a reputation for being sort of a "memey" anime, but it does have its sweet moments :)

  3. Comment on During WWII, Bletchley Park Was Home to Codebreaking and Tea Shenanigans in ~food

    If you haven't already, The Imitation Game is a great movie based on Turing's efforts in Bletchley Park. I don't know about the historical accuracy of the film, but it was very intriguing to watch (particularly their replica of the bombe).
