Last Week in Geekdom – Your Weekly News Round-Up (11/26 – 12/2)


Welcome back to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. If you haven’t already seen my blog update, I’ll be taking a break for the rest of the month after this post, but you can still catch me on Twitter. I’m hoping to get some time to sit down and actually plan out some better content as well as reconsider the format of this new post. So stay tuned in January for some new content. In terms of news highlights for this week: Way too many anime announcements this week, so check below so some of those; The internet has been going crazy about the announcements of Cowboy Bebop live action and Blade Runner anime; and Netflix has cancelled the Daredevil series after 3 seasons. Be sure to check out the videos and articles below, and as always have a great Sunday! I’ll see you all in 2019!
