Anime Diet Radio Episode “24” – One Con Deserves Another


In the days between cons–between Anime Expo and Comic Con, which starts tomorrow–we raced against time, and terrorists, to bring you the 24th episode of Anime Diet Radio! (Sound only, this time.) We just have a couple of news items: the new season of Black Lagoon, and the weird shenanigans happening at Studio Bones about Full Metal Alchemist and Darker Than Black sequels. Our Roundtable discussion is about the difficulties and the triumphs of our first ever live panel with Anime Genesis.

For the first time in a while, too, there were some outtakes worth keeping. There’s a story there about how I could get Shokotan’s number next time and about one other panel glitch in which we (sort of) shafted our beloved friends from Makenai, the Japanese cover band whose lead singer Pamela won AX Idol this year. Consider this yet another apology from us. 🙂

It’s great to be back on a roll with Anime Diet Radio. See you at Comic Con this week!

  1. Yea I felt I wasn’t at my best as well. The panel still was great and it was the biggest crowd I’ve been in front of so far. It went really well considering all the problems we ran into. I should have kept my laptop with me so I could read my notes as the audio I tried to record came out pretty horrible. I just used the audio from the video as it was tons better then what I tried to record.

    It was my second panel I’ve done. It went fantastic though and I think everyone did a great job. Look forward to working with you guys again soon.
