ASO Radio: Episode #132
Originally recorded 2019-Aug-08.
This Episode marks twenty (That's 2-0!) years of ASO Radio. It seems like only two decades ago that I started this show, but it has actually been twenty years - who could have guessed? ^_- In that time we have reviewed every anime and Japanese video game ever made as well as the majority of manga, visual novels, light novels, and soundtrack CD's, with reviews of millions of comedic and dramatic audio programs on CD and digital as well. Or... that would be awesome if it were true. So until it is, we will continue to review media from Japanese popular culture.
...And hey, here's to another twenty years of ASO Radio! We hope you all shall join us on our continuing adventures in anime talk radio broadcasting!

ASO Radio: Episode #131
Our fifteenth anniversary Episode - originally recorded on August 10th, 2014 - starts with an overview of ASO Radio's beginnings and its early episodes. We then segue to talking about the contemporary anime talk radio shows from back-in-the-day that have disappeared from the Internet over the years as well as what's been happening in the lives of Nz17, DB3, and ZGuy. All that is followed by our usual segments which include an anime review, some unique fan mail, a few zippy video game reviews while Nz17 gets a drink, and an overview of the 2013 NDK convention.

ASO Radio: Episode #128
This Episode contains a special announcement about some changes we're going to be making around here. But it also contains a review of the anime Working!! (known as Wagnaria!! in North America) and an hour-long interview with the famous voice actor Sonny Strait and the musician - and convention favorite - Warky T. Chocobo. A nice mix of ASO Radio goodness that spans over ninety-eight minutes, this is an Episode you should not miss!

ASO Radio: Episode #127
Yeesh, ASO Radio steps away from the spotlight for two weeks and the manga industry falters on its foundation. Is it a coincidence or is it the amazing power of ASO Radio's missing presence at work, causing a severe decline in purchasing habits? Yeah, that's what I thought too.

To the point
The host of the show, Nz17 sounds like he is experienced at what he is doing and sounds sure of himself. He can give a review of an anime show or something else (since he sounds like quite the gamer) quickly but still give a good impression of the material covered. This sounds like a person that has the wit and delivery to be on radio.
Compared to other Anime Podcasts.
Of all of the other Anime Podcasts I've listened to, this is by far the most professional one I could find. The Host takes his show serious, but in a light hearted and funny mannor. My one complaint (and why it dosen't get 5 stars), is that the audio quality is grainy and can be hard to understand.
Great for new fans and old otaku too!
I like this podcast 'cause the guys on it have been watching anime for a really long time. So some of their jokes are better for older fans, like guys who are older than fifteen, but they have really funny stuff that's good too if you are younger than that.
They review a lot of the new stuff like Full Metal Alchemist and Bleach, and they have reviewed hundreds of other shows too so they seem like they have a lot of things they are interested in. But see, what makes this good is they know what they are talking about. Like, they might review some magical girl show, but even though that seems silly they know what makes a GOOD magic girl show.
I like it best when they review something that's really bad though. This is 'cause they really rip it apart and say funny, funny things when they do. Like how something is so bad they could have used their time smashing glass on their heads and punching their eyeballs instead. LOL
So yeah, it's a good show, and I like their mascot girl too. She's hot. But that's not my point. You should listen to this podcast 'cause it is a lot better than a lot of the other anime radio shows on here, and they try not to use naughty words very much.
