Hi there! It's been a few days since we've said hello to 2022, but we don't want to forget the great anime news we heard in 2021 just yet! That's why we put together a selection of TOM News articles that our readers loved. 2021 was a busy year, so perhaps some will be new to you - on the other hand, if you've already seen all of them, thank you for being such a great reader!
First, we have five articles on huge announcements for manga, anime, and more. After that, you'll find five of our original articles, with some appearances from our very own TOM Senpais. Simply click on each title or thumbnail to check them out!
