Episode 61 – AX-hausted

It’s a jam-packed episode about Anime Expo! As we enter our third year of podcasting, we reflect on what made this year’s AX one of the best ones we’ve attended in years. Kate and Dennis are joined by Diana and talk at length about Kill la Kill and One Piece having a major presence at this con, and we do get to go over a bit of Sailor Moon, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, the Bang Zoom open auditions, and just tons more. So hope you didn’t get sunburnt, because we don’t want you to relive those Line Con memories. Episode 61 is a go! Read more

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 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 32 – Western Genshiken: Cosplay Edition

There’s been quite the debate going around amongst fellow con-goers recently about one topic: why is there so much Western pop-culture representation at anime conventions? At Anime Expo 2012, the Homestuck gathering counted over 1,000 gatherers. Panels about Dr. Who and My Little Pony can be attended at most conventions. Finn’s hat can be spotted more than Chopper’s hat. The cosplay community should be embracing of anyone trying to partake of this hobby, at any age, ethnicity, skill level, and fandom (as long as it’s age appropriate). Yet, now that Batman and Spider-Man are regulars at conventions with Goku and Sailor Moon, some cosplayers are in an uproar. Joining us today are Garrett from Real Otaku Gamer and Diana, aka Binkx, as we talk about the pros and cons of Western pop-culture inspired cosplay along with its future. Read more

Shonen Jump Alpha is now Weekly Shonen Jump

January 30, 2012–Shonen Jump Alpha launches for North America, bringing six very popular titles from Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump to a legal, digital format. There were two caveats with this launch: there were only six titles, and there was a two week delay from Japan. But now, the Alpha days have passed. It’s a new era for the Shonen Jump brand and Viz Media. Shonen Jump Alpha will become the new digital Weekly Shonen Jump as of January 21, 2013. Read more

Hey there, folks! Our next convnetion we’re attending is Yaoi Con at the Westin Hotel in Long Beach. It’s an 18+ convention due to the mature content, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!
