Doin' a Daryl Roll

by Zac Bertschy & Justin Sevakis,

ANNCast Episode 009 - Doin' a Daryl Roll

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

A few weeks back I asked you fine listeners who you'd like to see as a guest on the show, and the number one response was none other than Daryl Surat, the lovable scamp who hosts Anime World Order. So we asked him and he said he'd come on the show, and so here you go!

We start out this week with a discussion of the new anime season, with Justin and I comparing notes on all the disappointing new series that are out. Then we move on to talk just a little about the new rules enacted by the FTC that would require bloggers to disclose where they got the products they're reviewing, which sounds super boring but we don't stay on it for very long so rest easy.

Then we bring Daryl in to talk about anime fans who focus (obsess?) about anime from the 80's and 90's, Daryl's predilection toward 'manly' anime, the wealth of podcasts out there and then it's Twitter time. Enjoy!

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: Lots of swearing this time, mostly from me. You'll live!
