ANNCast 062 - Jonathan and Taliesin's Excellent Adventure

Get the Flash Player to see this player.






Right out of the gate, just as the winter season preview wraps up, Gia and I wrap up our thoughts on the (surprisingly solid) winter season (although we hadn't seen Fractale or Wandering Son yet). Then it's on to the interview!

New Generation Pictures' Jonathan Klein and voice actor/director/screenwriter/gadabout Taliesin Jaffe join us this week on the occasion of the re-release of their English-dubbed version of R.O.D -The TV-, which in its day was hailed as one of the best dubs ever. We reminisce about 2005, the show's initial release and reception, and then of course we eventually get to Hellsing and Hellsing Ultimate and a whole lot of other stuff they've done and how things have dramatically changed. Then it's Twitter time! C'mon down!!
