ANNCast Episode 054 - Longview

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

So right up front we talk about the thing we're supposed to talk about.

After that we chat about New York Anime Fest and how that all went down and how similar it was to the experience of San Diego Comic-Con, then it's on to Eden of the East (which you should watch) and Star Driver.

After that, Joshua Long, independent film producer and co-founder of 1212 Entertainment joins us to talk about the live-action Cowboy Bebop movie, which he's executive-producing, his Trauma Team TV series and of course, the live-action Fruits Basket project he currently has under development. Then it's Twitter time! REJOICE

Extra credit: if you comment on this episode, include in your notes what anime you think would make a great live-action adaptation. Joshua is listening!
