Interested in meaningless milestones? Great - this is our 51st episode!

All that aside it's Zac and Gia this week as Justin is on hiatus, so we talk about what we've been watching - Full Metal Panic!, Occult Academy, Highschool of the Dead and an embarrassing amount of Halo Reach before we get on to the good stuff.

Ed Sizemore from Manga Worth Reading and returning champeen Deb Aoki from About.com join us for a superfun casual fireside chat about all things manga but mostly about the massive perceptible differences between hardcore anime fans and hardcore manga fans. Also: an unbelievably varied number of topics and asides and fun stories. Pour a glass of wine and jump on in!

ANNCast Episode 51 Breakdown

00:20 Host introductions and an incredibly short first segment involving Full Metal Panic! and Occult Academy

09:30 Ed Sizemore and Deb Aoki join us to talk about manga fandom and the blogosphere vs. the anime community and how different they are. This is a very flowing conversation and is difficult to break down into topics, so just let it flow over you like the tide or, you know, don't.

59:00 Twitter time! Manga recommendations, Rumiko Takahashi and her waning relevance, fun stories about Italy and more!

And that's it! See you next week!
