A new co-host, Jeremy, has joined the merry duo. (DUM DUM DUM!) With our powers combined–we talk about Mushi-shi at Sundance (aka BUGMASTER!), licensing news from the past, and some impressions of Code GE-ass and (snicker) Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora, aka The Secret of Mana is Kissing. We also talk about the phenomneon Ray has dubbed shouri anime.
Also in the works is a new feature–downloadable Mystery Science Theater 3000-style commentary tracks on selected anime episodes! (Give credit to Ray–as you’ll hear, it was his idea.) Stay tuned to this podcast channel–the earliest will be up as early as Monday!
