Saalon, a friend named Nick, and I have been working on a fun little project for the past month or so. It takes some time to get three people together on a regular schedule. Now that the schedule’s stabilized, I’m now announcing our new podcast.
We’re doing a podcast called Otaku, No Video, a series of hour-long conversations about the anime industry and specific anime series. We discuss trends in the industry, what we see as problems, potential solutions, and our thoughts on various anime.
Amazingly, I’m even happier with it than I anticipated. I enjoy re-listening to our talks. We have useful, interesting things to say, and the conversation bounces from topic to topic. We keep the conversation from getting too geeky, as well; pretty much anyone should be able to understand it.
So, please check it out and let me know what you think (especially now that comments work here). I’d love to hear your feedback on what we doesn’t work, and what does.
(In case you’re wondering about the name, it’s a reference to a classic anime parody named Otaku no Video, or The Anime Fan’s Video, which told the story of anime fans in Japan in the 80’s. Quite funny, and an insightful look into what anime fandom was like back then.)
