First up: we have a new theme song! The song is "Bucharest" by The New Division, and you can find it (and a bunch of other great stuff) on their EP, The Rookie, which is available on iTunes. Big thanks to those guys!
It's an all-Charlene show this week as the Funimation brand manager extraordinaire (who really loves her job) returns to chat about a whole bunch 'o stuff, including the Oscar campaign for Summer Wars, the inexplicable screaming popularity of Hetalia, just how in the world they're gonna sell Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, just what constitutes an "Anime Classic" and more more more! Then it's Twitter Time! You didn't think we forgot about Twitter Time, did you?!
You can listen to the show on our player here, direct-download the MP3 version here, or you can just use these handy links:
Also: if you like the show (or don't like the show, I guess) be sure to write us up a review over on iTunes! It'd be a big help!
NSFW Language Warning: Given our guest this week, you are more likely to hear the faint sound of a unicorn giggling than a swear word.
