ANNCast Episode 045 - Viewers Like You Episode IV: A View Hope

Get the Flash Player to see this player.






It's a big ol' call-out show this week after our one-week hiatus! Right up top ANN associate editor Gia Manry shows up and schools us about her experiences at Otakon 2010, but first we get into a few things we've been watchin', mostly the Hetalia - Axis Powers dub and Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW. Oh, and Justin and I saw Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World last week and we just loved to pieces, we did!

Then it's call-out as usual; first we talk to Aaron about the fading collector mentality among anime fans, then Tom joins us to chat about how all this excessive fanservice is killing anime as we know it (okay, maybe not killing, but perhaps choking), and then relatively-newly-minted ANN critic and debutante of D2Brigade joins us to talk about her various anime critiquin' gigs. It's a good time! You know you want it!
