In episode 8 of the Anime Nano Podcast, we discuss the release of Hinano’s Otaku Idol video, the brutal war between DarkMirage and Doremi Fansubs, The groupification of the Random Curiosity anime blog, and the process of publishing a doujinshi manga. We also talk about Tokyopop and their online “exclusive” manga.
This episode is a whopper. It’s pretty much a full length podcast at 72:57! In it, we talk about Bandai Entertainment threatening legal action against fansubbers, the new Kanon sequel, the de-planetization of Pluto (and the effect on the Sailor Scouts), and Hung’s plunge into visual novels. Jpmeyer also sings the Erica Ohayo Dance! Hinano talks about how youtube and deviantart are discriminating against her.
