Anime News: February 26, 2020

Hello anime lovers, I’ve got a bit of an announcement for you.

Sorry I missed the last two days. Monday night I wanted to crush the last 100+ pages of Winter’s Heart (Wheel of Time) and today I was busy with some personal stuff.

If you didn’t know already, I am a big anime and manga fan. I wouldn’t call myself an expert in either by any means, but I enjoy watching/reading them when I have the time.

I don’t do much of a deep dive into different anime or mangas, but I do read/watch a decent amount.


Not only did we get some Crunchyroll exclusives coming out in Spring 2020, we have quite a few others as well.

Here are the crunchy-roll ones that will be released in 2020:
Tower of God
The God of High School
Noblesse
FreakAngels
Meiji Gekken: Sword & Gun
Onyx Equinox
In/Spectre
High Guardian Spice

I am EXCITED about Tower of God. I started reading it years ago when it was relatively new, and have been following it ever since. I’ve wanted it to be an anime pretty much since the beginning, and I can’t wait till it comes out in April.

If you want a more comprehensive list of all anime being released in Spring 2020, with their release dates, check out this list here!


What anime are you excited for in the spring 2020 release? Let me know in the comments because I am always looking for more anime to watch!

WWW Wednesday: Jan. 29 2020

Hello my dear readers, welcome back to another WWW Wednesday.

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and is now hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

It consists of answering these three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I Currently Reading:

I currently have 2 books on the go, and 4 manga series, so I am quite busy with my reading. I have IT by Stephen King that I am slowwwwwwwly working through and Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan that I am focusing most of my attention on.

In terms of manga I have Seven Deadly Sins, Made in Abyss, One Piece, and one I started this morning; Pygmalion.

What Have I Recently Finished?

I just finished an audio book version of Bullets, Teeth, & Fists 3, which I reviewed.

What Will I Reading Next?

After I finish Winter’s Heart, I’ll move over to something short and easy to read; The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek. It’ll be a nice quick read so I can get back to The Wheel of Time.

What are you currently reading, and what do you plan on reading next? Let’s talk about that.

Wheel of Time News: Casting Announcements

Hello again dear Wheel of Time fans! It is Wednesday again, which means that we have some more news about the upcoming Wheel of Time show!

We have an episode title and a few casting announcements that were released today.


Episode 6 will be called “The Flame of Tar Valon” and will be written by Justine Juel Gillmer and directed by Salli Richardson.

This was released today on Madeleine Madden’s Instagram.


In terms of casting announcements, we have a few! Some had their characters released, and others didn’t…but here it is:

Wheel of Time Wednesdays: Casting Announcement

Deadline.com announced that Amazon Studios confirmed the roles of Alanna Mosvani and two of her warders, Ihvon and Maksim, have been cast for the upcoming Wheel of Time TV show

Alanna Mosvani will be played by Priyanka Bose. 

Maksim will be played by Taylor Napier. 

Ihvon will be played by Emmanuel Imani. 

Alanna is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah who has a significant, and sometimes controversial, role in the story. Interestingly, in the books, Alanna has two warders, Ihvon and Owein.  Of those warders, Owein has the lesser role and is only mentioned a few time before dying.  It seems he’s been replaced by a character named Maksim. It’s unknown if these are intended to be the same character, or if Maksim is a replacement for Owein with the intention of having a larger role.
