It's a twofer this week! First up Chase Wang, representative of AM2, the upcoming anime 'n manga 'n music convention that happens to take place in the same area and on the same weekend as this little thing you may have heard of called Anime Expo. We've had Chase on before, but it's only one week until the convention's set to begin, so it's time for a checkup. Also, they got hacked. So we talk about that.

Then it's time for a visit with Walter Amos, diehard longtime superfan, Yamato and Legend of the Galactic Heroes devotee and Hetalia History panel guy. Walter contributed to the Hetalia History segment on the first Funimation DVD of the series, and we talk about his history as a fan, ye olden days of tape trading and raw watching, his trip to Japan and the time he met Leiji Matsumoto, and much much more! It's fun! GET IN HERE!!

Also, here are some links to Walter's stuff:
