Episode #0009 – Anime on the Cheap, Part 1

(Note: yes, I announced the date of this episode as Monday, September 21. I really did intend to release it on that day, honest! Oh well, better late than never, I suppose!)

Pretty much everybody agrees that we are indeed going through some troubling times, economy wise. Most everyone is feeling the pinch of the global recession, and we’re all looking at cutting our expenses. So how do we feed our need for anime in these lean times, without breaking the bank? I explore this topic in the first of two segments I’m calling “Anime on the Cheap.” We also go through the latest anime news, including – of course – Weird Japan. And I have a few treats for you as well, so be sure and stick around till the very end!

Intro music: “Don’t say ‘lazy’,” Toyosaki Aki, Hikasa Youko, Satou Satomi, Kotobuki Minako (K-On! ED theme)
