Here it is, the special mid-week episode I promised containing my review of FanimeCon 2009. In short: It’s the perfect compromise between huge mega-con and small local fan-run con, and I liked it. A lot. We also go over some news, including, yes, some more Weird Japan. No picks this week, but I think you’ll like this episode just the same.
