Anime Diet Radio Episode 28 – Love and Marriage


To your favorite anime characters, of course! That’s the subject of the news items of this episode Anime Diet Radio, in which we talk about the petitioners for legalizing 2D marriage, and the outrage at Nagi possibly being “sloppy seconds.” The talk gets a little, uh, intense, so it’s marked with an “Explicit” tag. In the Roundtable, though, we finally calm down and talk about One Outs, Michiko to Hatchin, Kurozuka, Chaos;Head, and the impending cancellation of Dattebayo’s Naruto fansubs.

The bad news is that since this episode was recorded, the contract job I mention in it has since ended, and I’m still waiting to hear about whether I’m going to be hired by them. So keep your fingers crossed.

  1. Hey i listened to the direct download link for the mp3 and at around 41:39 it restarts back to the start of your conversation up until the end

  2. @stephen007: I’ve listened to the linked file in all three means available for MP3, and I can’t reproduce the problem. Make sure the whole file downloaded–it’s 29.2 MB. Thanks for your feedback–we need feedback to keep us vigilant for problems.
