The Latest and Greatest in Anime panel. Presented at Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2016
Panelists: John Fragglepuss Evans, Breanne Evans, Brittany Evans, Lindsay Starke
The following is a list of the anime we reviewed for our panel on The Latest and Greatest in Anime at Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2016. In the panel we reviewed anime that started airing its first season in the past year. There are a significant number of new anime, 50 or more each season, so it is not possible to review everything that has started airing. We appreciate everybody that came to our panel and thanks to FanX for giving us a larger panel room this convention. Here is a short summary of each anime so that you can read through and get some ideas on new anime to watch.
