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

Anime Roundtable #78

After four months of sitting (and a load of wondering from a few places), here’s the episode taped on May 29th 2010, the second night of Anime North. I am sure plenty is out of date still but some things remain timeless…like issues in the biz, Christopher Handley, our annual appearance by Norm, and the fact that Mike is once again in hiding. Although you may find it interesting when Adam leans on the Lawyer side of his “Hentai Lawyer” title.

So after almost a year, the Roundtable comes out of hiding at Anime North. In the return episode, the group shoots the breeze talking about cosplay as an indicator of what’s still popular, convention going at AN, culture shocks as an anime fan after being in Japan, and how times have passed with the end of clubs and the death of a pioneer. Well that’s what we talk about in terms of relevant stuff…but longtime listeners know how this really goes. All presented in one long take.

In this episode, allergies hit the roundtable so hard that it knocks out one of them. Unfortunately for Mike, he wasn’t one of those hit. Therefore he has no excuse for taking almost two weeks to put this up. In this episode, which was already outdated at the time of taping, we talk about further fallout from the Handley case, Funimation taking One Piece out of streaming, EVA 1.0’s North American Theatrical release, and the great CPM auction. We’ll even go non anime with Apple’s moves at the WWDC and the death of a legendary Japanese Pro Wrestler. Taped on June 16.
