Anime Diet Radio Episode 26 – Fall 2008 With Your Host, Krauser III

He just...loves everything.
He just...loves everything.


It’s time for our quarterly Fall 2008 Roundtable at Anime Diet Radio! Shows covered include ef, Clannad, Nodame Cantabile, Hyakko, Akane Iro, CHAOS;HEAD, Linebarrel, and Kurozuka. This also marks the first time in a while where we’ve had 3, not 2 news items, too. Continuing the Krauser madness from the last episode, we talk about the Hollywood effort to remake Detroit Metal City (as well as the super-secret casting list our co-host Jeremy acquired), the misinformed MSNBC article on anime and sex, and strange appearances of Haruhi Suzumiya on Canadian TV and…tissue boxes.

As another DMC inspired episode, this one also gets the “explicit” tag. Kids need permission slips from their parents to listen. :
