Chic Pixel Plus Episode 31 – Summer Anime Extravaganza

Himouto Umaru-chan at the beach anime

In this week’s episode, we get a fancy new intro and forgo Media Minute to spend extra time recapping the summer anime of 2015! But first, we make time to discuss our shoujo horror manga pick (aka “spooks for preteen girls”) in Manga Book Club. Then it’s an anime extravaganza as we give our final thoughts on all the shows we watched this season. Plus, we bring out the guillotine and each select our favorite show of the lot! Can you guess our picks?

Of course, we also announce what we’ll be watching for the fall 2015 anime season. Be sure to tweet along as you watch using #TGIAnime!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
