In this podcast, mech reveals that he did not read the summer season preview thread and the cast reveals that they don't celebrate Canada's birthday.

I did, and I knew that Shiki was a horror anime. Horror can mean a lot of things though, and I'm pleased with the particular brand of horror that they are applying, if this is what you are insinuating.

Excellent episode. I now wish I could go to those anime expos. And I really enjoyed the rant on Last Exile. I'm glad now that I did not finish that series, because it would have been a waste of time for me.

I must say that I really enjoy this podcast. You made me wanna try out Welcome to the Space Show, and maybe other works by the same guy. :3! Plus I loved hearing your con stories. (Cool censor sound on the Last Exile thing. lol XD!)

BTW: If you guys are interested in having a guest, I've got a skype account. (hint, hint! lol XD!)

Oh, it sounded like you had never heard about Shiki or Moyashimon at all.

Also, Kamichu is a show that is likely more stylistically similar to Welcome to the Space Show than ROD that the same staff also worked on. Kamichu is the reason I'm super-hyped for Welcome to the Space Show.

Well for example you guys, this particular time we were looking for people who had been to cons...and Htom was someone who was...kind of available XD.

It's hard to schedule guests, so that's why we are kind of selective. Nothing personal...you may be surprised one day we may just ask you all to come on! :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this episode, it was really fun recording it with the boys. ^_^

And Mech...WHUT?

Loved the show, as always.

Some bad news for Fish (although you might not care):
[spoiler]"Many viewers mistakenly assumed the child shown to be Mullin's son. Additional materials state the child is Dunya's younger brother."

Also, apparently (according to Wikipedia) Exile took everyone to a new world/planet but I did not get that from the show AT ALL.[/spoiler]

Moyashimon! 8D
I support Mech going to anime cons because otherwise he would not have heard about Moyashimon: LA and he would not have told me about it.
Same with Shiki~

For some reason, Welcome to the Space Show sounds familiar...I don't know why though.

Interesting note, at the small anime cons where I live, there has been talk of plans for some of the con security to dress up in SWAT team uniforms and carry Febreze spray bottles. I would support this at all cons.

Fish watching Princess Tutu is wonderful. :D

Link had the best interview question. <3

Spoony/Htom was a fairly depressing guest at times, but since he is a Doctor Who fan, he gets many awesome points. o.o-d

There was actually an animated movie for Doctor Who. It was sadly the most terrible thing I have ever watched. The animation was cheap and painful to look at, the storyline was artificial and it didn't make much sense, and not ever David Tennant's glorious voice could save the poor thing.

Yay, I'm following Eden of the East as it's re-released on Funi's youtube site. I thought it was fairly slow and a bit weird, but something about it just interested me enough to watch more of it. I'm looking forward to seeing how it ends up. ^_^

Great show, guys~ I can't wait for the next episode. :3

And, dare I ask, what was the ending song for this episode? XD

The ending is two things. The first is a remix of the K-ON! ED, Don't say "lazy", which I really like. The second thing is something someone mixed together of Yui going JAKKA JAKKA JAN JAKKA JAN sometime during the second season of K-ON!!.

After the first dozen episodes of Last Exile, I would have fought you, Fish. After watching the whole thing, though, I pretty much agree. The ending was totally incomprehensible, the random character deaths felt pointless, and I have no idea whatsoever what the world they inhabit even looks like.

......but Alex Rowe's death, though, I thought that was pretty good. That was more along the lines of "the tragedy of war" than "needless deaths". You have to keep in mind that no one actually knew that Alex Rowe had killed the main villain. Or that he had any chance of doing so. Therefore they did what they needed to do and shot up the ship.

That is about as far as I will go in defending the show.

"all they needed to do was wait for Alex to snap that b--WRYYYYY--s neck."
Totally appropriate censor. I laughed. It was awesome.

EDIT:

If K-ON was like that song, I would be watching it.

Blkmage, I actually did read the summer anime preview thread, but I missed the one link you posted about the novel somehow, so all I had was the name and really vague descriptions that were posted before that, hence that I learned most of the information at the Funi panel.

Hey everyone! I just finished re-listening to the podcast.
And on my end the Let's watch and Recommend are missing, is that the case for you all as well?

If so, this weeks' Let's watch was Eden of the East Episode 1. Which is currently being streamed on Funi's site.


And the Recommend is Time of Eve, which can be found on Crunchyroll.

Time of Eve takes place in the future, where Androids are a common occurrence, and they can be indentified with a digital halo over their heads. (Kinda like information). And it's pretty much about these two boys who enter this cafe' where it is forbidden to talk about the differences between humans and androids. It's really cool and interesting and a very short series. Five of the six episodes are 15 minutes long, and the last one is 30 minutes.

So if you like thought provoking anime that follows Asimov's Laws of Robotics, this show is for you! :3

Both the Let's Watch and Recommend was intact for me.

May I ask a question about Time of Eve since it interests me? What's the content on it? What exactly is it rated? :D


BTW, thank you for having a segment where you mention some interesting shows on the podcast. It helps me in finding anime/manga I wanna check out.

I believe there is some cussing in it...and a cleavage shot, but those were the only things I really found objectionable. (That I can remember)

I'd say it's probably 16 and up simply because it's kind of a philosophical type anime... very deep and a younger audience might (MIGHT) be bored/confused by it... I'm not saying that a younger audience wouldn't like it... but yeah.

Content wise-It's probably your standard 13 and up rating.

REally though, this was a fantastic anime, and GORGEOUS.

Thank you so much for the info on that. :3! Hmm, maybe if I get down with the other titles I wanna try out, maybe I should consider giving this one a shot. :D

Uh . . . thanks, I guess. XD
I'm afraid I'm not much of a conversationalist, plus the technical issues on my end gave me all sorts of frustration until I got everything rolling. But I'm happy and grateful to have been a part of this. Thanks for the opportunity, guys. I'll keep listening.
