Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

Kyle and Rosemary

Ok, this is a bit old news, but still both humorous and touching at the same time.

By way of the Cartoon Geeks, this lovely gem of a video tells the heartwarming story of a geek and a goth, locked in a forbidden romance that neither of their friends can possibly understand. Funny and touching […]

Anime Expo 2009 photos on Flickr

Friend of the show Beep has set up a Flickr group to share your photos from Anime Expo 2009. A few of us have already started posting pictures there. If you’ve got pix from AX’09 you are welcome to share them as well. Or just click the link and check out all the cool cosplay.


Photos from Comic-Con

Friend of the show Dave “Paradox” Fayram (no, he hasn’t been on the show yet, but he is still a friend of it) is attending San Diego Comic-Con and has started putting up his pictures. Check them out on his San Diego Comic-Con Flickr set. Looks like he’ll try and upload new ones every day, […]

Run away! Run away!!!

This is a public service announcement to all Tokyo residents. If you were planning on visiting Tokyo’s Cafe & Bar DiCE! on July 25th 2009, from 10am to 4pm… STAY AWAY. STAY VERY FAR AWAY. For on this day, this normally mild-mannered maid cafe (disclaimer: as I have never been to this place, nor can […]

San Diego Comic-Con is Here!

I can’t believe that it’s that time already. Yes, that awesomely huge comic convention, Comic-Con, is set to rock the San Diego Convention Center this Thursday through Sunday, July 23-26, with a special Preview Night on Wednesday, July 22. But if you’ve procrastinated up till now hoping that you could get in at the last […]

Episode #0007 – FanimeCon 2009 Review

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 […]

Otaku Call to Action: Become Our Fan on Facebook

Attention all otaku – we need YOU!!

I’ve set up a Facebook “fan page” for our podcast. The problem is, it has one of those gnarly long Facebook numeric URLs. In order for us to get one of those cool guy (and much easier to type/remember) Facebook “vanity urls”, we need at least 100 “fans” […]

New Feature: Photo Gallery

The server oompa-loompas here at Otaku no Podcast have been busy. Their latest achievement: a new Photo Gallery section on the website, where I will post pictures from the various anime conventions and events I have attended. I’ve already started uploading some pictures from FanimeCon 2009, and will shortly upload my Anime Expo 2009 pics […]

Right Now, you are watching this AMV

Blame DJ City of TJX – The Japan Xperience for this little AMV interlude. He recently tweeted he was listening to a certain Van Halen Song… and that got me thinking about one of my favorite AMV (Anime Music Videos) of all time. And here I present it to you for your viewing pleasure. Sit […]

Episode #0006 – We’re Not Dead! (Yet…)

Yes, it’s true, we’re still very much alive and kicking. Let’s just say that 2008 was the Year of Hell, and a lot of stuff happened in my life (most of it NOT good). Things aren’t quite at the levels they were before the Year of Hell, but at least the dust has settled and […]
