The Beginner’s Guide to Anime, No. 20 – IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix

The Golden Ani-Versary Project – Covering 2008 & the relationship between anime and Britain

K-On! British

There is currently a project going on called “The Golden Ani-Versary of Anime” which is celebrating 50 years of anime being broadcast on TV. Several people have been writing for it, different people covering a different year. I’ve been covering the year 2008, and covering anime from a British view-point, (hence the picture of the K-On! girls in UK shirts, which was used in the article).

This article, several months in the making, covers Black Butler, Strike Witches, Soul Eater, Vampire Knight, Clannad and Junjo Romantica. Click here for the full article.
