    Episode 135 – The Grande Convention Haul!

    Episode 135 – The Grande Convention Haul!

    The month of July has come and gone, and as we look back on it we can say that it was a pretty strange and wild month across the board. But as the dog days of summer trek onward, so does this show, with plenty of big convention announcements and dub casts for the roll call of the season - and even some extra bits that show that Crunchyroll is just doing way, way, WAY too much for us to keep track of.



    There will also be some harsh and profane words spoken about a *certain* individual. And yes, it is highly warranted in that manner.

    Episode 134 – The Grand AX Return! (Part 2)

    Episode 134 – The Grand AX Return! (Part 2)

    NOTE: This show was recorded before news of the passings of Kazuki Takahashi and Shinzo Abe.



    After three years since its last in-person event, Anime Expo had its grand return on the big stage, and to the surprise of few it’s still as imperfect as ever with how the event is actually run and managed. Especially since it’s in Los Angeles in JULY. Nevertheless, this means another extended deep dive at the happenings, goings-on, and announcements from AX 2022, of which there were quite a few that were, to sum up, BIG. In the second half of this two-part episode, days 2 and 3 (and even 4) of Anime Expo are discussed, including panels for two big upcoming series (and Bleach, too), why Tokyopop should always be avoided at all costs, some amusing anecdotes from Dark Horse, even MORE Macross coming soon, and the moment where everyone lost their minds - yeah, THAT moment.

    Episode 131 – The Hunter’s Emergence!

    Episode 131 – The Hunter’s Emergence!

    Are you all ready for a super-deluxe-loaded fall season? We sure aren't, which is why we're all hoping for the summer season to be a bit easier for us so that we can lead into fall with a bit more ease - though that's not going to be easy with several big shows slated for premiere in October. And with the approach of summer comes convention season, with industry panels big and small and, in this case, a bit Discotek-y as well. Let's hope that Anime Expo won't leave us melting in the summer heat next month, too. Also, HUNTER X HUNTER IS COMING BACK... MAYBE... POSSIBLY... PRESUMABLY. And along with all of that discussion, there are more projects announced that have gotten our curiosity perked up, a good small morsel of sportsball integration, even more plans for trips to the movies, and yet another moment of Andrew breaking down into hilarious hysterics over a rather saucy title.



    Will ONA.exe return next time? We'll see what everyone has, first.
