Episode 55 – ALA Green Room Chat

February was a surprisingly busy month, and we didn’t even attend any conventions! We’ve got some cosplay and convention news from both US coasts. And Kate and Dennis finally have the interviews from this year’s ALA to present. Unfortunately, due to learning some new tech, half of the interviews were corrupted and unusable. Apologies to those that were interviewed yet are not on this episode. Hopefully, we’ll get to do more in the future. Episode 55 is a go! Read more

Extra Jam 3 – 3D’s and Shonen Jump (54.5)

Recorded at the beginning of the year while Weekly Shonen Jump was on break, Dennis is joined by Dominic from Animanga Podcast and Diego from Dropping the X Podcast to talk about some of our favorite weekly manga titles during the 2013 publication. We’ve got things that we’ve liked, lots of rants as well, and some general catching up with each other. Hope you enjoy some banter, because this is the LONGEST episode we’ve released so far (and hopefully the last time it’ll reach nearly 4 hours in length). Enjoy this special Extra Jam episode!

Episode 54 – Don’t Lose Your Way

Our first recording of 2014, and it’s a doozy. On this episode, Kate and Dennis are joined by Caitlin and Julia of We’re Not Twins Cosplay to discuss all things Anime Los Angeles. Since everyone on this episode is a staff member, there is some biased opinion going around, but you can still get their impressions of the attendees and all the activities held at the convention. And in case you missed it, head past the jump to go to our Tiger & Bunny cosplay contest. Episode 54 is a go! Read more

Episode 50 – Big Apple, 3AM

It’s episode 50! Woohoo! Didn’t think we’d make it this far, but so happy we did. On this episode, Dennis and Kate are joined by Viz Media’s Amy as we recap our adventures at New York Comic Con. It was extra special for this convention since there was a major promotion with Ranma 1/2. We’ve got creeper and sexist stories happening at NYCC (boo), lots of fun times with awesome people (yay), and what has to be our longest conversation about food ever. Oh, and let’s throw in some One Piece adventuring, too. Because it’s been a while. Episode 50 is a go! Read more
