Get the Flash Player to see this player.






It's an action-packed ANNCast this week! Right up front we have SUPER SURPRISE GUEST Ed Chavez who shows up to introduce some exclusive new license announcements - which you've already seen as frontpage news! Princess Knight and The Drops of God are coming soon. We talk a little about Vertical's 2010 and 2011, and then it's Evangelion 2.0, Summer Wars, The Garden of Sinners, farewell to Wizard and Toyfare and the whole Funimation 1337 pirates thing.

Then Ed Sizemore from comicsworthreading.com and the Manga Out Loud podcast and Deb Aoki from About.com stop by for a second round of fun, casual chat about all things manga - the past, the future, the impeding apocalypse at the hands of Borders, how digital content delivery is changing things, and much much more! Also: Twitter Time! This is a fun one, kids - hold on to your butts!
