ANNCast Episode 050 - Midstreaming the Cube

Get the Flash Player to see this player.






It's our 50th episode! According to iTunes, you can now listen to ANNCast nonstop for nearly 3 days. What sort of horrible narcissists would think anyone would want to listen to them squawk about anime for that long? Answer: us, apparently!

We start out talking a bit about the recent string of bankruptcies in Japan, and then it's on to our usual discussion, including the dizzying lows of Breaking Bad, Wolf's Rain, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, and also some other stuff. Fun times!

Then the folks from Anime Midstream join us to talk about exactly what they're up to out in St. Louis, releasing the obscure but fun giant robot series Raijin-Oh on DVD! How they got started, what their process is, how they did casting and all that good stuff gets sussed out! YAY!
