I’ve been listening to Anncast for about four years now, maybe five. At first, I listened weekly, even if I didn’t know what was going on, like when they did a their first fate podcast, I was confused. I kept listening, week after week and eventually become infatuated with listening to anncast. I started from the beginning, listening to at least three everyday. (When I was in high school.) during that time, In my anime life, I was watching 50+ anime a season. Of course, not realizing what I was putting my self through, after about a year I finally decided it was time for a break form anime. I was burned out for about two years, I just couldn’t sit through any series for more than fifteen minutes. This also meant I stopped listening to anncast. By the middle of my second year of burnout I started gradually listening to anncast again, keeping up with anime in my ears and of course all the community pages I kept over the years on Facebook. Zac and Jake both made me realize what anime actually meant to me, it’s art. I can’t just go around watching every single show every season just cause I wanna’ be superior. This is art, this something you came to cause you enjoyed the appeal of art that was foreign. Talk about anime, talk about movies, games, manga, please continue you to do what you guys do and I swear I will stick around. I love anncast, thank you zac, Jake, Justin, and animenewsnetwork.

solid podcast with bumps in the road

A podcast from the "Anime News Network" that has a lot of unique content from hosts who make use of the wealth of information they have and deliver it in an entertaining way. If you enjoy reading anime news I would definitely recommend this podcast.

There are only two problems with the cast imo - the first is that the uploads are very inconsistent. You never know when you might get a new episode. The second is that the hosts are extremely cynical and hard to please when it comes to anime. If you don't feel the same way, you may not enjoy listening to them.

But I do, and even though they do not interact with their listeners at all, I always look forward to hearing from them again.
