- I have a special place in my heart for Flash animation, both because I was a professional Flash developer before I became a journalist and because I was in high school during the height of Newgrounds. I had no idea Ping Pong: The Animation was done in Flash until I watched this video. If you haven’t seen Ping Pong yet, don’t make me cry. You can watch it here!
- Put two anime titles into this tool, and receive a list of all the voice actors they share in common. I found this service on r/anime and I’m obsessed with it.
- The best anime and manga for beginners. I have only seen half of this list, so it’s really piqued my curiosity. Thanks for the link, Zoe!
- I always like checking out the Reverse Thieves’ Anime Awards after a season ends. Check out their favorite shows, characters, and more from Winter 2015.

Sorry Otaku Links has become more erratic lately while I’m finishing up the book. Just 15 more days until it comes out!
