Two months on, and Mike and James get off their asses and turn on the mics for a digest and talk about a load of things that have happened in those two months, and would like to talk about more. Lets see…mature Yonge St., X-Japan, a few angles on Kimagure Orange Road, Mike Toole and Canada, the Toronto Anime Community Calendar, BiSH, Angela’s appearance on another podcast, and Kimonos

A digest full of bullets

So very much at the last second, Mike and Neil decided to do an episode with an old friend from a distant past, who was in town to visit family. So they turn on the mics and catch up on fandom in old times, fandom in current times, and fandom in the Middle East; differing views on Yonge St since the van attack, explaining Miyazaki to a parent, and a recommendation from Mike (he’s actually watched something), with a reminder how old and forgetful all everyone around the table has become over the years

*Bonus for the people who can figure out where the washroom break happened in the middle of the taping…and who took it

Another old face from the past returns around the table as Mo finally joins the others. This time a complete mix of stuff starting with Anthony Bourdain, Ontario politics and the World Cup on the eve of the Round of 16. Then we get a little more on topic with thoughts on Chris Hardwick and Nobuhiro Watsuki’s problems, Pacific Mall, streaming video services (with Mike finally having watched some Battleship Tiramisu and Attack on Titan). Then Mo gives some advice to Mike and Kevin on watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe

After weathering yet another illness, our second episode at Anime North begins with thoughts on Anime North’s second day (except for Austin, he went on another TCAF rave). Then as Neil and Geoff mention to Mike a few of the shows they’ve been watching to get him up to speed, Mike asks about where anime fandom sits in the rest of geek culture, with an amazing insight from one of AN’s longtime organizers along with memories of the Conservative Convention from 2017

The return episode of Anime Roundtable starts appropriately from Anime North. After seeing illness nearly wipeout the show, it’s somehow brought back to life with late shows and pinch hitters up to our first four mic episode in the 6ixTalk incarnation. We unfortunately start by talking about the Bombay Bhel bombing in Mississauga (and how it hits close to home), day one impressions, a brief rehash on our Makoto Shinkai debates, and look forward to day two

The return of The Anime Roundtable Canada sadly begins with a serious note, as we share our thoughts on the Yonge Street Attack earlier in the week. Then we try to lighten up the mood looking forward to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival and Anime North, with talk on the latter’s Nominoichi Flea Market, and an announcement on the podcast

Mike had certain plans for this episode, but it went off the rails well before we hit the record button

Neil returns for the first time in new the incarnation, and picked up where he left off on his soap box (which basically means buckle up). We talk a little politics, the search for a new fourth mic, the business and medical sides of gaming and the Olympics, and some memories of some of the popular geek spots in Toronto
