Welcome to the Anime Rapid Pulse for the week of August 25, 2018! This is a roundup of anime news stories that take care of themselves by the headlines alone. Not all news stories need paragraphs upon paragraphs to get the point across, but sometimes they are too important to be ignored. The Anime Rapid Pulse solves this by just rapid firing those news stories to you in one convenient post!
