We settle back into our first recording of any sort in about a month

7:08 – James and Geoff give their take on the Netflix issues and the current streaming landscape. With a longer discussion about the past and present way of consuming content (both anime and mainstream). Netflix hasn’t been all bad has it? Well…

36:22 – Worker in the North American dub industry is looking to do what a lot of other industries these days, put a union label on it. Netflix hasn’t been all bad has it?

Then headlines in brief (can’t call them the Bullets anymore can we?)

1:01:55 – Hunter x Hunter about to come out of hiatus. And what has changed during the hiatus

1:10:13 – The Iron Chef reboot coming to Netflix is more based on the American version than the original Japanese version. So we talk about the significance of Fuji transfering the license from Food Network to Netflix

1:20:20 – Collider’s “Seven Greatest Anime Films Worth Watching Twice”

1:26:51 – Should we really be surprised as to who has picked up Shinkai’s latest movie? So can Sony do it justice with its promotion? The likely answer is probably better than Disney and Miyazaki
