Anime Roundtable #61

So after yet another month off, the Canadian Roundtable finally decides to return for a less politically incorrect version (Adam is off this week).

In this inaugural episode of 2009, we’ll spend the idle talk (and about half the show) on university labour strife, the Inauguration itself (duh), and the follow up on the NHK Kouhaku. Then on the important stuff, we’ll take a look at the Diamond Comics benchmarks, and then a brief talk about the Hetalia manga and anime, political correctness and Korea.

Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Geoff Greig (1:05:50)

    Interestingly, I stumbled across a Jero video online a few months back and I really like his sound. I’m considering a purchse of his cd.

    My anime club has actually started showing Hetalia, since one of my club’s executives is a big fan of it and really wanted to promote the series via showing it. We have one person who is against the showing of it (despite not having any problem with the anime itself), which sparked an interesting yet somewhat unbearable argument at a club meeting over a week ago. It wasn’t too fierce, but both individuals are very opinionated and probably won’t budge from their respective stances on the matter, It’s essentially been resolved, though.

    In a way, this scenario seems similar to the whole Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Controversy back in April-May.

    In any case, it’s nice to see you guys up and at it again.
