Chic Pixel Plus is back! In episode 40, we celebrate Pokémon‘s 20th anniversary and the announcement of Pokémon Sun and Moon, ruminate over Funimation’s Escaflowne Kickstarter, and pick our next manga title (featuring a cute critter, of course). Then Sarah recaps her trip to Okinawa to visit her family, and gives us more of the cute critter action we crave in the form of the one-eyed chicken P-chan.

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.
