Anime Roundtable v2.0 #64 – Saturday March 12 2022: I’m Batman!!

We settle in with a debate about Batman in animation and movies over the last 30 or so years. And what we hope for in this cinematic take on the property this time around

Then with the perfect segue in mind…

22:35 – The stars of The Batman are interviewed by a Vtuber LA+ Darkness

26:10 – We look back on last week with Moh and Geoff. A perfect opportunity to talk more Funimation and Crunchyroll

39:10 – An Anime North follow up as registrations continue with arguably the main event to come…Comic Market. With the conversation flowing back into the AniTuber and the fanworks topic from previous weeks

Now, finally the new stuff in the Bullets Segment

54:43 – Disney+ comes into the Asian battleground with their announced their partnership with NTV (Nippon TV Holdings), with one of their first projects to come out being another live action adaptation of the Kindaichi Case Files. And the talk about Disney diversifying their streaming service

1:07:05 – And on diversity…

1:12:35 – Megumi Ogata talking about voice acting becoming a more “gender-free” artform…while receiving a best actress seiyuu award

1:19:36 – Makoto Shinkai’s early works going to GKids…furthering the Miyazaki comparison. And what tables it may set up for the future


1:34:55 – The Community Calendar and we look ahead to the Discotek and J-Novel twitch presentations

1:41:18 – Announcements and looking back on some anniversaries. Including our own

This Weeks Drinking Game: Take a shot everytime a great segue comes in. And then take one when you realize Mike will probably be taking one for a missed opportunity to mention Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch making a Sherlock Holmes reference in a Marvel Movie

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

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