Hey everybody! Episode 5 of the Anime Nano Podcast is now ready for your downloading pleasure.
Hinano came back, but for some reason jpmeyer went missing. My Theory? They’re the same person! Your hosts for Podcast #5 are:
In this episode, Hinano recalls her Otakon experiences. We answer a bunch of fanmail (and get off topic). The mailbox included topics such as the definition of NEET, why Canada thinks anime = porn, and gender equality issues in anime and Japan. Also, we discuss the coming in of Hard Gay. How could you, HG!?
Also, please review our podcast at iTunes music store. They’ll be helpful to get more people to listen. Maybe. We’d also like to get your opinion on how long you’d like the Anime Nano podcast to be. Is 70 minutes too much? Too little Sound off in the comments section.
OP: Wild Spice by Okui Masami
ED: Young Man by Hard Gay
