The following is a list of the anime we reviewed for The Latest and Greatest in Anime panel at Salt Lake Comic Con 2016. The panel was fantastic! It was great to have Alec join us for the panel this year. There was a consensus among the panelists that this panel contained some of the best anime we’ve reviewed in a while. We were all excited to present and there were several anime we wanted to add to the panel but didn’t have time. We appreciate everybody that came to our panel and thanks to SLCC for having us.
