Tsundere Banana 4 – My So-called Otaku Life

What it is: a podcast/audio column

Length: around 10 minutes. Less than 10:30.

Host: Ray from Taipei.

Frequency: Mondays at 10 PM (haha, I got the time wrong today. I posted it at 10 AM! I’m such a dumbass!)

What it’s about –

1. looking into my so-called Otaku life.

2. Thoughts and opinions on my observations for many things, mostly anime and culture.

3. Inner workings, ideas and others behind the scenes at Anime Diet (animediet.net)

Comment: It’s upclose (perhaps too much for discomfort), personal (I got good hygenes) and raw. It’s Ray unplugged.

This episode: Ray talking about the Claymore Petition, started by KURORO (information provided by thiago_pagogna at MAL). Thinking about making a fanime with pros. Iniviting interaction.

This is not a very serious article. Please don’t put me on a heresy trial!

Full transcript follows after the cutaway.

Audio Column – The View from the AT Field 02

In this week’s “View from the AT Field”, I examine the fascination with “moe” using myself as a reference.

I’m actually pressed for time, so sorry if this doesn’t sound as smooth as usual (read: I think this officially sucks). XD

I’ve included the article here – The View 02.

Enjoy!
