Toole Runnings

by Zac Bertschy & Justin Sevakis,

ANNCast Episode 007 - Toole Runnings

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

It's lucky number seven this week on the ANNCast! We start out chattin' about Cencoroll, which both of us saw last week, and then Justin talks about his haul from the Meltdown Comics one-dollar manga blowout sale in Hollywood. Then, it's an in-depth look at the terrible, horrible, no good very bad utterly hilarious "Samurai X" dub Sony dumped on their new Crackle video portal.

Then we bring in Mike Toole for a chat about the world of freelance writing and then it's all obscure old wacky dubs you've never heard of!

Then we take some sweet Twitter questions from viewers like you. How can you miss this episode??
