Winter 2017 update!

Happy 2017! Here’s the latest from me:

The column over at Anime News Network? Still going! Come learn more than you ever thought you wanted to learn about Japanese animation.

I recently interviewed songsmith Yuki Kajiura, the mind behind the music of Sword Art Online.

You can hear my guided commentary on episode two of Lupin the 3rd Part II, now on DVD from Discotek Media!

Did you miss my review of Hideako Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s SHIN GODZILLA? Get caught up before the home video release!

I went to the Winter Comic Market! Check out my column on it.

I will be appearing at several anime conventions here in North America in 2017. It’s a little too early to get into specifics, but you can count on seeing me at Anime Boston. More to come!

A few quick words

The old site wen’t down the memory hole, so while I rebuild it, here’s the latest from the Astonishing World of Mike Toole:

My column at Anime News Network continues, telling you more about Japanese Animation than you were ever, ever interested in.

I visited Kyoto Animation and interviewed one of their directors, Mr. Taichi Ishidate.

Here are my thoughts on Under the Dog, an exciting action OVA funded on Kickstarter!

I went to Anime Japan in March. Check out the trip – essays, photo galleries, and more.

Last Christmas, I gave you a Christmas special! The very next day, it aired a few more times, on channels like Comedy Central and Spike. It’s archived here. Get a jump on the holiday spirit!

In 2016, I’ve appeared at Arisia (speaker), Anime Fan Fest (guest of honor), AnimeNEXT (guest of honor), and Otakon (speaker). My next stop? Arisia 2017! Join me, won’t you?
