One final digest to end off the summer. In this one, we talk at length about the ADV/Geneon deal announced earlier this week. We give our own speculations on the deal, as well as give a brief history of Geneon/Pioneer distribution, and distribution in Canada.
We call it a digest, but…it’s still almost an hour long. Yeah, I guess we can’t shut up.
Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Terry Visser, Anthony Visser. (57:35)

Yeah, a week late again on the update. James finally reminded me that there was in fact points won in San Deigo a few weeks ago…likely because he was the only one that scored. He got 4 points on Viz’s license of the Nana anime. With the score, James takes the lead again. Here’s the scoreboard.
James Austin: 38
Mohamed Sharmarke: 35
Mike Nicolas: 19
Dean Colak: 12
And that pretty much is the big conventions this year. However the pool will still go until a few weeks into the Podcast’s new season. The season starts in early September, the pool will end in the back end of the month.
And just a quick note on Kanon here. No one here considers Kanon taken by any means. There’s plenty of speculation yes, even from the source themselves, and it is probably only a matter of time. But nothing is set in stone. We’ll see if the assumed announcement is made before the pool ends.
