Shelf Life
May 20th, 2019

by Paul Jensen,

Welcome to a slightly different version of Shelf Life! Running a review every week has become less feasible from a cost and organizational standpoint in recent months, so we're trying a new format for the column. In place of those weekly anime reviews, we've expanded the new release list to cover print volumes of manga and video games from Japan. This is still a work in progress, so expect to see some tweaks and updates over the next few weeks as we figure out what works and what doesn't. Thanks for your continued readership, and we hope this new format will keep Shelf Life both relevant and sustainable for the future.
