ANNCast Episode 042 - Totally Boss

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Starting out this week we've got brand spankin' new associate editor Gia Manry joining us for the top of the show! We talk a little about her history and then dive in to what everyone's been watching, including X, My Bride is a Mermaid, Durarara! and more. Then we get right into the bludgeoning awkwardness that is New Voice Productions. It's a doozy!

Then for the first time in 42 episodes, Anime News Network's editor-in-chief Christopher Macdonald joins us all the way from Shibuya, Tokyo, to talk about all the new stuff that ANN is going to debut this year, including a ton of new video, a casual news feed and a bunch of other stuff. We also discuss his summertime world tour and his penchant for driving a really expensive car in a circle really really fast! Then it's Twitter time! Get ready to lose your minds!!
