fun and intelligent podcast
I first heard about this podcast when I attended a manga panel with the hosts at castle point anime in Hoboken. they offer a fun, conversational perspective on anime/manga topics and set up a variety of formats for the podcasts (season start reviews, show ended reviews, convention reviews, anime topics of the month). I have started several series (anime and manga) after hearing their reviews. Definitely give it a try and you will soon grow to love the podcast and hosts! thanks for the great work!
This is a great podcast.
I've been listening to the Reverse Thieves podcast for years now. From their season previews to their standard monthly show, the hosts do a great job of keeping me up to date with the latest in anime. I highly recommend both this podcast and their blog.
