The Wandering Witch – “Just One More Thing…”
Welcome, all, again.  I find myself writing this column just a couple of weeks into a new season of anime, so I must decline attempting a premature evaluation of new shows. Meanwhile, three series (in particular) are continuing this season from last, and all seem to be doing so strongly: Your Lie in April, Yona of the Dawn, and Shirobako.

It's another year where we get to see Brie, our lovely mascot, and the radio grow older. We asked some of the staff to share their memories of some of the first songs they ever heard on the radio between now and January 3rd, 2010. Some staff members wrote their thoughts, others spoke it, and the brave few even sang it! What 91.8 The Fan memories stand out to you? Let us know in the comments!

The Wandering Witch – Shirobako’s Beautiful Storm
Welcome, all, again. Our subject this time is Shirobako, an anime about making anime. And while that might sound like an invitation to kid-glove treatment of subject matter and blatant self-serving promotion, this show deftly repudiates those concerns. It is both funny and engrossing, but makes me wonder how we get to see any anime at all!
