So apparently Anime Expo is the convention that’s known for its anime license announcements. This year was no exception. A lot of “well, duh” anime were announced, but there were also a few surprises. ANN decided to compile all of these into a nicely ordered list. I thought I’d go through the list and give my 2 cents on the acquisitions (at least, the ones I’m familiar with).
Despite how it sounds, Binbou Shimai Monogatari is not an anime about a bunch of bimbos. It’s actually about two poor sisters working to make ends meet. I like to translate Binbou Shimai Monogatari as “The Legend of the Financially Destitute Sisters!” So is this anime uplifting and happy, or super depressing? Or both?
