Episode 65 – Cospla Bonita

On this episode, Dennis and Kate ask Diana about her trip to Nan Desu Kan last month, and we try to keep the Casa Bonita talk to a minimum. No promises. After that, our friend Ed joins in to talk about the US premiere of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno from the LA Eigafest. And also, we go into the simulcast world premiere of the first two episodes of Fate/Stay Night [Unlimited Blade Works] by UFOTable, the direct sequel to Fate/Zero. Read more

Episode 63 – Southwest Two-Step

episode 63 title

Just because Dragon Con is so big doesn’t mean that there are other conventions not looking into. Aaron and Eve join Dennis and Kate to share their experiences with the first year Anime California and the just hitting their stride Saboten Con respectively. Though, one had a better time at the convention compared to the other. We talk about a con-goer’s struggle, fun skit ideas, and even toss in a little Eurobeat. Episode 63 is a go! Read more
