It’s that time again. Welcome to the another edition of my seasonal anisong roundup. New for Spring 2019 and as part of the SixTAY Days of writing challenge, I’ll be writing this article “live” by adding one new entry over the next several days (let’s say a week, though they may not be consecutive entries).
On today’s The State of Aether, a very brief chat about Teppen, Dr. Mario World, and one of the worst hot takes for Dr. Stone I’ve read.
Greetings! I didn’t post anything last night due to another commitment, so I’m posting one extra article today that came to me recently.

Back in 2017, then Overwatch superfan site (still?) and shipping consultant Kotaku put together their own playlist of tracks that Reaper mains might enjoy, titled Reaper_Bangerz. As a metal man myself and resident specter of these blogs, I gave it a spin, eager to add to my evergrowing collection of music I started a…

On this The State of Aether, I’ve got a weekend story, another quick writing update, and I run through some very quick impressions of several anime shows that I started this week.

Bungo Stray Dogs tells the story of a group of individuals known as the “gifted” who possess supernatural abilities. Though we follow a number of individuals and organizations, the story is largely viewed from the eyes of protagonist Atsushi Nakajima, a boy who at beginning of this story is kicked out of the orphanage…

Okay, I’m too excited today to really write about anything specific. Here’s a list of cool stuff I’m excited about that was just announced recently, stuff I’m waiting on, and stuff I’m doing or will be doing:
The English dub of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will be airing on Toonami this Fall. Aniplex of America made the announcement at their Anime Expo panel yesterday and Toonami confirmed the premiere via Twitter.

I was browsing YouTube earlier today and came across a very specific video recommendation that immediately caught my attention. Thinking it was some sort of next gen Capcom fighting game, I clicked on it only to find another video game that has been quietly making its way to several YouTube personalities. In the video…
Fire Emblem Heroes is teasing a Three Heroes collaboration in late July. In addition, those who purchase the new Switch game and link their copy to their My Nintendo account will receive Byleth: Tested Professor as a free unit in Heroes.
Today I check in on the SixTAY Days of Writing halfway mark and upcoming projects, July 4th and Anime Expo 2019, and some very brief thoughts on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and Super Mario Maker 2.

I’ve been playing the Switch version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night for the last few days now. Technical issues aside (it crashed on me today for the first time), I’ve been having a blast with it. The fact that I didn’t want to stop playing barely an hour an a half in is probably the highest compliment I can…
