AnimeNEXT 2014: Trigger Happy

(note: No Type-Moon Weekly News Round Up or All Points Bulletin this week.)

Like all smart conventioneers, AnimeNEXT went after Studio Trigger as guests this year and were successful in bringing over Shigeto Koyama and Hiromi Wakabayashi who both had a hand in Kill la Kill and Inferno Cop among other things. AnimeNEXT doubled-down on awesome with their musical guest being ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D who has supplied openings for DRRR!! and Yowamushi Pedal!

We’re hoping to record live from the event on Friday night. But even if we don’t, this month’s Speakeasy Podcast will be dedicated to AnimeNEXT. As always we’ll have tons of coverage the weekend’s proceedings in the coming week, too.

We got panels, be sure to attend!
