Carole & Tuesday is the new anime series from Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo mastermind Shinichirō Watanabe. Set in a future where humans have colonized Mars, it tells the story of two girls from very different backgrounds who meet and begin making music together. It was supposed to premiere worldwide today, but because Netflix doesn’t know how anime works, they’re presumably holding onto it until some time after both its cours have finished airing in Japan. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on the series at some point in 2022.

What have you been reading/playing/watching/eating/listening to lately?

Netflix can eat a butt.
