6ixTalk – Anime Roundtable v2.0 #18 – May 1 2020

In a nod to the concept of necessity being the mother of all invention, the Roundtable makes history tonight with it’s first online episode…or at least starts to technologically play catch up…one or the other

After Mike, Kevin, and Moh show some contrition for episode 17 (and James disavows any responsibility for it), Mike updates the story that was on his mind a few weeks back (5:23), then everyone else updates their lives in the pandemic lockdown (7:08), including our thoughts on console video games. Then we talk about how the pandemic has affected the actual Japanese industry (36:15), and the Toronto anime scene (43:45). On the topic of coping in the COVID era, in the second half of the show we talk about Anime Lockdown and give our quick day one impressions (50:45), and other anime streaming options (1:27:22), before ending on other tech ways people have been dealing with COVID (1:36:32)

At least we remembered to hit the unmute buttons on the microphones

Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Kevin Ng, Mohamed Sharmarke
