You have exactly one week left to vote on our latest Otaku Poll. Fall 2017 is very close (most of the new series start in the first two weeks of October) and we want to know what you’ll be watching. As soon as we know all the legal streaming sites, we’ll prepare our Legal Streaming List (see our Summer 2017 list here), so you can choose where to give your precious anime money.
Anime is now in its most mainstream phase with at least four legal streaming sites competing for your subscription by offering simulcasts of almost all the season series. Anime that are licensed in the west get official English titles that are sometimes very different from the Japanese. Take for example Uchuu Senkan Yamato and its official English title Star Blazers. That’s why we added a new section on our Anime Info Pages that includes all the titles we know of, from the source material title to the official English.
But as always, we have another anime news recap for you. Here are the anime and otaku news that had the most page views this last week, 1-7 September 2017!
