Holiday Gift Guide 2021: Anime
SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — The two sections that have grown the most over the years have been tabletop games and anime. This is partly due to a general rise in popularity and also because I’ve found myself increasingly curious about both fandoms. There are so many hours in the day (and I tend to be working most of them), but given the time I could see myself embarking on a long journey into the world of Japanese animation. Someday. Until then, I’ll wistfully watch from a distance as the audience grows.
Don’t forget to check out my other 2021 gift guides including Star Wars, Disney and Pixar, movies, television and streaming, tabletop and video games, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
