Anime Roundtable #56

Mike was thinking about the next episode then realized he had forgotten about putting up the last one. You can blame that on either personal matters (ie moving) or his feeble attempt to block out what happened in the episode. Mercifully it wasn’t as news oriented as it usually is.

Five around the table as we talk about an academic paper on anime’s internationalization and then the Comic Book Legal Defence fund. That peppered with the obligatory stuff when you get Adam, Neil, and Neil’s roommate Megan around.

Are you beginning to see why Mike was trying to block out the episode? Taped on October 16 2008.

Anime Roundtable #55

After Mike successfully finds a nicer room to tape, we start off this week with Adam showing signs of interest in girls closer to his age…then he spends the rest of the show in a degenerative spiral hoping for coffee. In all of that Mike poses updated thoughts on impressions of things in our little world…of course they’re things we’ve talked about in some form already…of course they’re based on Spanish skinny dippers and Enrico’s return from two and a half weeks in Japan…of course Mike is looking for ideas for future episodes…of course Adam says more stuff about Clarissa behind her back.

Anime Roundtable #54

The Anime Roundtable takes a video game turn when the crew discusses downloadable, paid extras. Then it gets back to more normal content with thoughts on new and switched licenses, the iPhone in Japan, a new Nintendo DS, and something about dying in a porn store.

All this while we introduce a newcomer around the table…a girl…with Neil and Adam also around…this cannot be good…
