Good to hear you again, especially Luis. Great episode, really interesting. Some time ago I was wondering if I should pick Kaiba, now it’s like I don’t have a choice. And when Alex said something like “Ponyo is the cutest little goldfish”… my head just exploded into candy. Also I’d like to ask if you consider reviewing Toradora on the podcast. I finished re-watching it just a few days ago and I have to say it’s one of the best shows of the past few years. If you like Clannad go watch Toradora, it’s better. I hope that you’ll be releasing new episodes more often. Right now your show is the only one anime related podcast I listen to (maybe besides Onii-chan no Ecchi, lol) and it kind of sucks when you give your fans like two episodes in a year.
First off, I want to say thank you. I had been having a terrible day and listening to this podcast made me happy. Okay, so that was a super long podcast. That was pretty nice because it’s been such a long time since you had an episode.
The things you said about the cosplayers really made me laugh. I think you guys should go to a convention, I want to know what it’s like. I kind of want to go to one but I’m a little afraid to.
I agree that Ponyo was a cute character but I didn’t feel as connected as you. Maybe because Noah Cyrus played her. I really wish they hadn’t gotten mini Disney stars to play the characters.
The end of your podcast made me smile. It was nice to hear you guys paired up to make a podcast. They are definitely better when it’s the two of you. I can’t wait for more podcasts. Keep it up.
Oh and THORA makes some great quality subs : D
And yep, Ponyo was great, watched it on a Japanese lesson in school : >
I wonder though, maybe I should watch the dub as well, seems like it could actually be good.
Oh and Special A was pretty fun ^^
And yeah, manga readers are traitors..Wait, that means I’m a traitor as well ^^;
Anyway, great to have another release (even though it was some time now since it was realeased)
Well, guys. It’s now 2011 & you’ve went a whole year without a podcast. Guess I’ll unsubscribe since it’s uber clear you’re not putting out anymore. Shame really. You went in depth with your reviews & it was 1 of the better podcast out there. Suppose all good things must come to an end. It would have been lovely if you could have done a farewell show but, guess it’s just not meant to be. Laters!
that, it seems that, even these days, big movie productions still have a tennedcy to either kill off their strong women (good example: Avatar ) or strongly display their actions as motivated by romance even Eowyn in The Return of the King was shown to be motivated much more by her love for Aragorn than she ever was in the book. I think that’s a real shame, as it just keeps continuing to reinforce old stereotypes that do justice to neither women nor men.Now don’t get me wrong I am in no way saying that everyone should be 100% politically correct all the time, but I do think that a podcast with such a wide and loyal listener base should try to be a bit less cliche9d when it comes to gender roles.Please keep up the otherwise great work! As always, I can’t wait for the next episode, and am keeping my fingers crossed for a new season of Secrets of Middle-Earth as well!
