Anime Roundtable #34

Our view of Justin Sevakis’ open letter to the anime industry. In the bullets, the closing of the Toronto maid cafe, celebrity divorces, CSI DeathNote, and an American adaptation of Train Man to come. And finally Adam requests a guest spot on the Happy House of Hentai.

Tell me what doesn’t belong?

Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Adam Grant. (1:05:33)

    Anime Roundtable #32

    This week, School Days and its prospects in North America. We’ll also remember Steve Pearl and a bygone era in North American fandom.

    Don’t worry, most of this is still not as serious as it sounds.

    Anime Roundtable #31

    The Baskin Robbins episode. In it we’ll have a serious discussion about anime’s depiction of war on the eve of Remeberance Day in Canada. On the lighter side we’ll talk about Halko Momoi, One Pound Gospel, cultural figures in Japan, and the Perry Bible Fellowship.

    mmmmm….ice cream…

    The episodes were taped on Thursday, but they’ll be put up a little later than usual this weekend. Episode #31 will likely come up late Saturday, and Digest #6 hopefully sometime Sunday.

    In the meantime I just wanted to put in quick plug for the annual Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema going on next week from November 15th to the 18th. The anime highlights will be SOS Metro Tokyo Explorers on the afternoon of the 17th, and 5 Centimeters Per Second on the evening of the 15th. Both I believe are Canadian Premiers. So if you’re in the area, by all means. And I’ll once again repeat how much I am raving over 5cm, that is a must see in my books.

    Anime Roundtable #30

    Talk about the Japanese Government survey on regulating “Harmful Material”, and a brief conversation on “Realizing Gundam”. Sprinkled with how Mike screwed up giving away candy during Halloween, and the ups and downs of Canadian Dollar parity (especially when Canada Customs gets involved) at the beginning; and an interesting request by Adam at the very end…one that will not surprise you one bit.
