Happy Thanksgiving from Anime Diet

Anime Diet wishes you, especially American you, a very non-diet kind of day! Spend some time with your friends and family and gorge yourself on all your favorite traditional foods. (Just think of us if you overstuff yourself with anime today too.) Think about what you have to be grateful for.

As for myself, I’m thankful for all the wonderful staff, past and present, who have helped build this site to what it is now–for making us one of the best review, podcast, and con coverage sites out there. Y’all made it happen. And, of course, for all of you readers and listeners and watchers out there. We couldn’t do it without you too.

Have a great holiday! See you again soon.

Anime Diet Radio Episode 16–Spoiled Turkey in a Bowl

Thanksgiving is over.

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.
