Otaku Outlook Announcement: The Wait is (Almost) Over!

A while back we made the announcement that we were going to be introducing our official reddit page as part of an extension of D&A Anime Blog. So far we’ve been trying to gather a date of when we were going to peel back the curtain for one of our newest features, and guess what guys n’ gals, we now have our answer! Our Otaku Outlook reddit page will make its official grand opening on Friday December 7, 2018. Aside from headline posts about various events and news regarding the anime industry, we’ll also be posting open questions about different topics surrounding the anime community; that you (the fans) can weigh in on.

Every Friday and Saturday night our reddit page will be open to all, so if you want the latest news on what new shows are out or what’s trending in the anime community, check out our Otaku Outlook reddit page; coming December 7th! Until next post, stay golden! 😉

“Throwback Thursday” and “D&A Friday’s” Make Their Return in 2019!

About a year and a half ago we’ve done some reviews and overviews on various anime titles from the past, as well as the present. From that point on we’ve done a lot of filler posts regarding a mixed bag of topics ranging from anime convention after parties, to ways to save up money for said conventions. After coming back from Anime USA last weekend, we’ve been working on fine-tuning a few things in terms of marketing and maintaining both our online, and offline presence in the anime community.

This being one of them; the return of Throwback Thursday and D&A Friday’s, two of our most popular segments on the blog. We’ll still keep all the elements that you love about these two segments with only one small change; both will be done on a bi-weekly schedule. These two segments will make their return on January 3rd and 4th of 2019, and of course if you have any suggestions on anime titles that you’d like us to review, let us know through our Contact Us page.

Until next post, stay gold! 😉

Time For A Super Quick Announcement!

Hey guys n’ gals! Sorry we’ll have to keep this one a little short due to the fact that we’re preparing for Anime USA, but we do have some quick announcements that we want to share with you. After Sunday we’ll be returning to our originally scheduled filler post schedule; which is every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. It’s been a rather crazy week as we haven’t been able to get our posts up in a timely manner, but we thank you in advance for understanding. We’ll have the full Anime USA recap as well as the highlights video and cosplay pictures! Until next week, stay gold! 😉

D&A Anime Blog: Plans & Announcements For 2019!!

January 11, 2016 was the day that our baby was born. Back then we were just two guys who loved anime and manga, went to cons in the Baltimore area, and have kindled a 15+ year friendship. Originally the blog was just going to be a digital photo album area, where we would post our pictures with all of the cosplayers we’ve taken pictures with at anime and comic book conventions. Now with our baby turning three next January, we plan on expanding our online (and hopefully offline) presence with our fans, voice actors, and anime distribution companies.

So far one of the newest blog updates we have is the fact that we’ll be going Premium on January 11, 2019 (our 3-year anniversary date). We also mentioned that we now have a title for our official subreddit page called Otaku Outlook, which will feature posts about various topics surrounding the anime community, and the anime industry. Since its been a bit of a struggle on how we were going to deliver our fanfiction segment to you guys, we’ve decided to restart that in January 2019. Our first fanfiction title is a crossover one; featuring characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt series called Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: Sonic Fury.

Aside from those updates and announcements our music segment where we feature original DJ tracks and mixes from Enzo Blackjack (D.J. Lewis), will make its debut on January 19, 2019. We know that our videos have been a little scarce in the last several months due to the heavy responsibilities of life, but we do have something that we’re currently working on at the moment that will be revealed in due time.

That’s all we’ve got for announcements and updates for the moment, but should anything else come up be sure to swing back here for the info. If you have any questions let us know on our Contact Us page section of the blog. Until then guys n’ gals, keep making D&A a part of you, and we’ll make you a part of us! 🙂

D&A Anime Blog: 15K Views and the Otaku Outlook Banner/Avatar Reveal!!

Man, can you believe it?! There are only four months in 2018 left and before you know it, we’ll all be looking at New Year’s Eve right in the eyes. Since January of 2016 we’ve gotten the chance to meet so many awesome people who love anime/manga as much as we do, and as the years go by, we plan on doing new things and introducing new features in order to help us reach more fans out in the world. One feature in particular is thanks to a poll on Twitter that helped us decide on a name for our new subreddit page. For this filler post we’re proud to announce the reveal of our Otaku Outlook subreddit avatar, and banner!!

Otaku Outlook is an upcoming subreddit page created and powered by us at D&A Anime Blog. It’s an entire reddit page dedicated to the otaku subculture; such as news and events that are happening all around the anime community. If things go well with our new feature, then it will become our official newsletter title for the blog. We’ll keep you updated on the official release of our newest reddit page in the coming weeks.

We’re also happy to announce that we’ve crossed the 15,000 view threshold for overall views on the blog! We never could’ve achieved this without the love and support from for our fans both near and afar.
