Chris' daughter Lily is with us tonight to talk about the current state of anime! The iconic Japanese style of animation and storytelling began its slow crossover to American theaters in the late 80's, but for a long time it was seen here only as a sort of niche, art-house novelty. No one could have predicted how big it would get, though - today, young people around the world have embraced it as their generation's defining form of art! Join us as we compare the old and the new with our double-feature of 1988's classic Akira and Netflix's The Promised Neverland!
