Well, here it is, ANNCast Holiday Special II: Die Harder.
No wait, make that ANNCast Holiday Special II: Attack of the Clones.
Wait wait, no, I've got it: ANNCast 2 Holiday 2 Special
We're covering 2005-2009 which were mostly pretty grim depressing wasteland years for the anime industry and as such things get a little dark, but that's OK because we're both very punchy and easily distracted thanks to talking about anime for 4 hours straight.
WITNESS! the fall of Geneon USA!
THRILL! to the slow fading of ADV Films!
COWER IN FEAR before your new monolithic overlords: Funimation!
And just so you don't forget: by no means is this intended to be an exhaustive or "complete" discussion of the last 10 years - Justin and I are simply reminiscing, staggering down memory lane with bottles in brown paper bags. There were the good times, the bad times, and a whole lot of questionable anime. No guests, no distractions, just shootin' the breeze. In other words, you've been warned: this is a whole lot of Justin and I going on and on at length about old stuff.
We're back to normal next week with our usual format and some cool guests so enjoy listening to Part II of the Holiday Special while dealing with your post-New Year's hangover. Perhaps it will drown out the thudding headache and lingering regrets.
See you next year!
