I am just curious but how many of you guys work on this site? I am just surprised a site like this hasn’t gotten more attention because some of your reviews are quite well thought through.

Thanks for the compliment! Our anime section is still relatively new but we’re doing our best to grow it and get the word out!

Thanks! We split the site responsibilities amongst a team of people, and we all try our best to write engaging and quality content. Hopefully the attention will follow in due time. 😉

Just curious but is there going to be another list for the best series of the year?

Matthew Ponthier June 5, 2019 - 8:07 am

It’s certainly something we’ll attempt when the time comes. We still have half a year of new anime to make our jobs more difficult first, though, haha.

More than likely, yes! 🙂
