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


Extra Jam 2 – Holi-dazed (Episode 53.5)

Recorded during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, Dennis and Kate are joined by fellow talky buds returning for another Extra Jam episode as we go over random things, like anime, One Piece, games, movies, One Piece, TV shows, and did I mention One Piece? Head past the breakdown for all of the talking points. There are a lot. Happy 2014 folks! Read more


Episode 53 – Magical Combat

n our final episode of 2013, we go over the amazing early December ACP events of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion Los Angeles premiere and the Combat Radio Breakfast with Santa toy drive. Joining Kate and Dennis on this episode is special guest Mario Bueno (EMP_Maniac), a great cosplayer and also the cosplay organizer for the Combat Radio event on behalf of ACP. There will definitely be Madoka 3 spoilers, so check the time stamps to avoid them at all cost if you haven’t seen it. Episode 53 is a go!

Episode 51 – Comikaze Invaded

Our second to last convention for the year is the fast-growing Comikaze, presented by Stan Lee and Elvira. We only went for one day, but had quite a bit of fun! Join Dennis, Kate, and special guest Kristen, aka Space Invader, as we go over the sights and sounds of this convention, with a little bit of extra input from an independent comic book publisher. Also, if you have some time (and money), why not check out Kristen’s Facebook page and Etsy store for cosplay pieces and commission information. Episode 51 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


Episode 49 – We Can Be Heroes

New podcast setup, and brand new topic. On this episode, Dennis, Kate, and Aaron go over the SyFy reality show Heroes of Cosplay. Yes, there were some missteps along the way, but there are some things that are real, relatable, and actually good. We go over the cosplayer roles, faults of the show, and hopes for season 2. We also have a good opinion piece on how we could rework the show, and maybe for the better. Have a listen, and give your own input, too.

And don’t forget, check out the PBS documentary Cosplay! Crafting a Secret Identity, which can be found online, too. Episode 49 is a go! Read more


Episode 47 – A New Challenger Approaches

Gamashura Ouendan

You’ve read Kate’s thoughts, now you can hear them with more insight. Kate and Dennis talk about their trip to the Santa Clara Convention Center for the inaugural Japan Expo USA. Things don’t always go as planned at conventions, no matter how hard you prep for them. And that’s even more true for us who have gone to a lot of conventions. There’s the worry about the quality of having a double masquerade, the impressive guest list, the sparse programming, and the weird autograph session restrictions. There is some good to be found here, though, including free parking! So come have a listen, and share your thoughts on our Facebook page. Episode 47 is a go! Read more


Episode 45 – Back In Competitive Shape

Henshin-a go go

The AX talk went on so long we had to split the episode into two parts! Diana joins last episode’s crew of Dennis, Kate, Aaron, and Eve as we discuss the Anime Expo masquerade, some drama that goes behind the scenes, what goes into judging such a huge event, and how the competitive fire is lit amongst us. If it moved you as well, then you know what we’re talking about. Episode 45 is a go! Read more


Episode 44 – Whirlwind AttAX

Cosplay Jam episode 44

Apologies for the delay, but when life hits, it hits hard. We’ve got a two part episode about Anime Expo 2013, and what a doozy it was! Gatherings, booth work, panels, masquerade–if you weren’t there, we hope that this podcast helps you feel like you were. On this episode, we have Dennis, Kate, Aaron, and Eve discussing all those topics about AX…except masquerade. That will have to wait for next time.
