ANNCast 104 - Viewers Like You: I Think Therefore I Rant

Get the Flash Player to see this player.






It's a call-out show! One that doesn't start with any depressing news or anything! Hooray!

We get into a couple hot-button issues here: right up front Hannah talks to us about certain fans' reaction to homosexual relationships in anime and manga and things get a little ranty in there for a bit. Then we calm down with Michael, who wants to chat about the potential future of Gundam in this post-Bandai Entertaiment USA world of ours. Then things get really ranty with Brian, who's kinda sick of everyone expecting him to be positive about everything all the time! Finally we round it all out with Jonathan, who works the freelance grind subtitling anime. It's a can't-lose show! With heated opinions on things!
