Man it’s been a while! This was recorded on Thanksgiving weekend, hence the Turkey Bowl and the Thanksgiving references, but I was unable to find time to edit due to school, the plane not having plugs, and most consequentially, a family medical emergency this week. But here it is…our sweet 16 episode, in which we take on Death Notes in Virginia, Pizza Hut in anime, and Odex all over the world (snicker). Our roundtable “Turkey Bowl” talks about the year’s projected winners and losers, including Gundam 00, Claymore, Lucky Star, ef-a tale of memories, Hayate no Gotoku, Ghost Hound–just to name a few. And Monty Python references.
I wanted to include more sound effects, but I don’t have the time…it’s also my first time using Soundtrack Pro rather than Garageband to put this one together. Soundtrack Pro is a sweeeeet piece of Apple software, and it makes certain editing tasks so much easier. I’m still learning the ropes, though.
