FUNi People

by Zac Bertschy & Justin Sevakis,

ANNCast Episode 022 - FUNi People

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Welp, we're back from our Holiday Hiatus (which you didn't notice thanks to the holiday specials!) and we've got a hum of a dinger of a show for you this week!

We start out talking a little about how our holiday vacations went and then get right into a vicious rumble over the relative merits of Yumeiro Pâtissière, a show about a little girl who is good at eating cake. Then it's a brief chat about Gintama, Justin's latest Bluray headache and The Lovely Bones which wasn't very good. Just sayin'.

Then our esteemed guests from the Monolithic Market Leader of Anime, FUNimation Entertainment, show up. We've got Adam Sheehan and Lance Heiskell, who we then subject to rigorous questions about all things FUNi, and then it's twitter time as usual. 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:

NSFW Language Warning: Actually there's hardly any swearing in this episode! Glory be!
