This month also brought the announcement of new site Anime Sols debuting in spring of 2013 and the opening of YouTube channel Anime Bancho.
Thankfully this month was far more sedate than the madness of last month. But November quickly reminds us that there is not much more year. So I am curious how much of a spike we will see in traffic to these posts. We are hoping people use them to do their end of the year posts but we shall see how true that is in December.

It is one thing to be told how short an amount of time new manga have to prove themselves in Weekly Shonen Jump. It is another thing to see exactly how true that is when you watch the turn over.
