Episode #0047 – Anime Expo 2015 (Better Late Than Never)

Despite numerous scheduling difficulties, extreme heat and (still) flaky equipment, we’ve finally managed to get together and record our thoughts and wrap-up of Anime Expo 2015.

Of course, we also bring you our latest and greatest anime (and this time also mobile app) picks.

Still working on posting pictures and video (the flaky computer kind […]


Love Live! School Idol Festival Tips for New Players (Updated)

Update 10/11/2015: A few minor updates toward the end of the post.

Update: we’ve finally nailed down a time when we’re all able to get together and record our AX wrap-up of Doom. (Better late than never!) And I think (knock on wood) I’ve gotten to the bottom of my computer problems. So look forward […]


Cool Find: Love Live! School Idol Festival – a really cute (and fun!) rhythm game for iOS and Android

Unfortunately, due to further scheduling conflicts, and a suddenly-very-flaky computer (random spontaneous crashes, makes it really difficult to do stuff like record/edit audio and video) I still haven’t been able to get our AX 2015 coverage online. I’m hoping to have the computer problems sorted out soon, so that I can at least finish posting […]


Cool Find: Dreeps, a cool new JRPG for those too busy to play JRPGs any more!

Yes, I’m still here. Sorry for the lack of updates recently; this new year has been really busy for me so far. Not only have I been swamped with work, but this is also the time of year when the Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) occurs. I’ve been a part of the A/V staff for […]


OT: These printable models of the iPhone 6/6 Plus might help you decide which size to get! (Updated)

Update: It has been pointed out to me that Ars Technica beat me to the punch with their own printable iPhone 6 mockups. Story of my life, right there. 😛 Still, I can claim some superiority with the fact that, unlike theirs, my models are actually in 3 dimensions! So there!

People who’ve visited this […]


Anime Expo 2014 preliminary schedule is now up in both PDF and Guidebook! (Updated)

Update 06/20/14: The Guidebook guide has been updated, and now contains the complete schedule, as well as general info, event policies (weapons policy, code of conduct, etc.), GoH and industry guest info, and a transportation guide!

We have spoken at great length about the tips and techniques we recommend to ensure you have the best, […]


Cool Find: VLC Media Player for iOS (Updated: Also for Android too!)

Update: DJ City of TJX points out that VLC is available for Android too! Unfortunately it’s still labeled a “beta” but from what I’ve heard it works quite well. And hey, it too is free!

Greetings. First of all, yes we did go to Anime Expo, and we returned safely, albeit not in perfect health […]


Yesss! Anime Expo 2013 schedule is now available in the Guidebook app!

A few days ago, when I wrote about the availability of the Anime Expo schedules, I did my usual moaning and groaning about how Anime Expo should join the 21st century and start making their schedules available on smartphones and tablets, which more and more of us are carrying around these days — and I […]

Cool Find: Crackle is yet another way to watch anime for free

Today’s anime fans are pretty damn lucky. Gone are the days when you had to wait time immemorial for (insert name of random anime distributor) to dole out the next DVD of whatever anime series you’re following, which of course you’d have to pay like $30 or more for. And if you suddenly got the […]
