    This is our special podcast on ballet cosplay safety. If you are thinking about integrating a ballet element into a future cosplay, then this program is for you. It is the culmination of nearly three months of recorded interviews with the cosplayers of the station mascot Sarah Yoshida, combined with additional comments by those we had reached out to on social media. All of the guests speaking are cosplayers with extensive dance experience, with a special emphasis on ballet and pointe work. We invite you to listen in, take notes, and consider their advice, tips and recommendations.

    We thank the cosplayers featured on this podcast: Airedail, Deerly Cosplay, Eline (Behind the Masks Cosplay), emzynai, floralNINJAchan (Lemonade Pirates), Lilith Christopher, Kessho-Cho Cosplay, Kristen (K-Sisters Cosplay), Naku (Invisible Wonders Cosplay), Swedish Ballerina and Venus (Astro Cosplay).

    March 12, 2020 - Coronavirus, Video Games, Rent-A-Girlfriend

    March 12, 2020 - Coronavirus, Video Games, Rent-A-Girlfriend

    On this installment of the podcast, Nef and JR comment on how the Coronavirus situation has turned the world upside down in recent days. The subject then turns to video games and apps before discussing the current updates and trends in Japan. One aspect of modern Japan that is growing in popularity is the ability to "rent" other individuals to pose as a good friend or other close acquaintance for a certain period of time. A manga that addresses this booming business is being turned into an Anime series that JR briefly talks about with Nef called "Rent-A-Girlfriend", scheduled for release in the summer.

    February 27, 2020 - Mako-chan and Umi

    For the first time we have two simultaneous guests on the live stream, as JR and Nef welcome two Sarah Yoshida cosplayers and long-time supporters of Extreme Anime Radio over so many years... Mako-chan and Umi! Both attended the Love Live! Concert cinema screening in late February and share their thoughts on the experience during this show. We also address the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak in Japan and other parts of the world, and share some good news about the music of Studio Ghibli.

    Note: There is background noise during portions of the broadcast due to one of our guests being in a busy location at the time of the live recording. We apologize for any inconvenience.
