Anime Diet Radio Episode 18 – Don’t Try This At Home

Anime Diet Radio finally graduates and comes into its maturity in this, our 18th and our first Jeremy-less episode in a while. (He had a toothache.) We’re doing DANGEROUS things that you shouldn’t try at home: like the Indonesian boy who imitated Naruto too much and spreading the Clannad virus! And we also talk about this season’s anime like Gunslinger Girl Il Teatrino, Rosario + Vampire, True Tears, Shigofumi, and They are My Noble Masters.

This was, as you will hear, recorded two weeks ago on Super Bowl Sunday. It is actually Take 2 of Episode 18, which because of computer problems described in the Introduction, we had to scrap. I still think this was a good episode, though, and I hope you’ll agree!

Erratum: the drink referred to that had a commercial in the Superbowl is not called Volt, but Amp. As you can see I did not do well in the electricity unit of high school physics. :) You can see the original Super Bowl commercial here (1). Note the warning at the bottom!

  1. Unfortunately for the fanboys out there, I am a guy. koneko-chan is actually the name of my sis gave to her stuffed animal cat. koneko-chan is also the xbox screenname I used back in the Halo/Halo 2 college network games for the “you have been sniped by kitty cat” kill line. The screenname has stayed around since.

    Anyway, another fun episode. The sound effects are great.

  2. Great podcast guys.

    I also think you would need to grow Gendo’s beard. I won’t vote for you unless you have the beard. And just think, once you have the beard you will get lots of votes from non-anime fans because they will think you are the reincarnation of Abe Lincoln…

    Oh and Hi back Mike LOL =P
