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

Mike comes on to test his Yeti mic, tell an HQ story, announce some housecleaning, and details for our Anime North tapings

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

The 6ixTalk – Intro

Sometimes you just have to hit the record button. The cold open and introduction. On its 12th anniversary, Mike and James return for the first time in 8 years just to shoot the breeze and reboot the Anime Roundtable into the 6ixTalk
