Anime Roundtable v2.0 #60 – January 22 2022: The Gang’s All Here

We begin our first full roundtable of the year, by filling our obligations as Official Podcast of Anime North and talk about the breaking news of the resceduling of the convention to July 15-17th

Then we start getting down to the big business news of the week

25:00 – Yes there is a lot of talk about Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of the Activision Blizzard. So we just looked at as many angles and layers to the deal, and try to connect and see how it’ll apply to the overlapping anime fandom…if at all

1:20:09 – We finally talk about the Project Anime 2022 predictions and mention the things from it that got our attentions

1:29:40 – James comes back to the subject of NFTs and Shonen Jump’s tease into the crypto world

1:35:05 – And lets talk a few Sega adaptations, the upcoming Shenmue animation and a Japanese live action adaptation of Judgement

1:40:50 – Kevin does some online window shopping on the Shonen Jump store

This Week’s Drinking Game: Take a shot for five around the table. And another if you can find the actual point where James cut out…probably going to be dry in that sense

Mike Nicolas, James Austin, Kevin Ng, Mohamed Sharmarke, Geoff Greig

Opening Theme: “FUBUKI – Snowstorm” performed by Pico Masaki
