Miscellany Monday: Family Letters From Beyond The Grave…?

What’s goin’ on anime fans! Here’s Yours Truly (D.J. Lewis) coming to you with some lesser-known anime goodness from Virginia Beach, VA! In our last post I mentioned that we’ll soon be changing up our posting schedule for the Fall and Winter, in order to better accommodate you guys (the fans). We’re also working hard to get our Patreon page up and running so that we ca do more for the blog, for anime voice actors, and most importantly…you! Here’s what we’ve got for you on this overcast Monday Night straight outta Virginia Beach, baby! 😉


If you’re an anime fan who’s on the lookout for a lesser-known fantasy-touched drama-filled psychological thriller, then Shigofumi: Letters from the Departed will be the title that you seek! The series follows the main character Fumika, as she is a Shigofumi who delivers mail to the family members of the deceased. The letters themselves contain things that the dead had wanted to say to their family and friends while they were alive, but could not bring themselves up to say what was on their mind before they died. Fumika travels with her talking staff Kanaka while they deliver the letters of the dead to the family members of the living, and if they’re not doing that, then they reside within the realm of Shigo. The Shigofumi themselves are actually now-dead mil carriers who don’t age, but Fumika herself is not yet dead, which means that she’ll age the same way every human does. You can stream this series on Crunchyroll or FunimationNow.

We’ll continue to keep you all posted on all the new happenings going on with the blog, as well as new information on our newest fanfiction; Danganronpa Enoshima! Are thoughts and prayers are also with the people, voice actors and anime fans who were effected by Hurricane Harvey within the past couple days. D&A loves you, and stay safe out there! 🙂
