Wow…has it been this long? This is Anime Diet Radio #19, take 3–there were two previous attempts to record this but they either had tech issues or were too long ago to be relevant anymore. (Take #2 will be released shortly thereafter as a “LOST EPISODE!”) But the whole gang’s here, and we’ll be talking about the Gonzo simulcast streaming deal, the new Slayers, Clannad, Hellsing, Slum Dunk, They Are My Noble Masters, and Kaiji!
A word about the mailbag. The very brief mailbag section was recorded long ago–it was the only part of “take 2” that survived here–and so it misses Dan’s later comment on episode 18. The campaign of Ikari “Mike” Gendo would like to say in response that the American people need change and there is no greater change than to return to the 19th century style of hirsuite men’s facial hair. Public photos of the candidate will soon be posted and it will be sure to mobilize the voters, otaku and non-otaku, to say with Gendo: “YES, EVA CAN!”
