Crevinsworth ,

DanielVegetable ,

Great Anime with Greater Hosts

Anime podcasts are great! This is proof of that! Thanks for making a wonderful show

An old weeb's dream

You had me at Tenchi Muyo. I've been needing people to talk about my generation of anime with, and in the absence of that, listening to you guys scratches that itch. I'm also continuing my campaign to get the Utena movie bonus episode. Do it for an old man, please? =)
