Video #0007 – Japanese Classic Cuisine: Yakitori

Yes, I’m taking another break from audio podcasting. Today I show you how to make a classic Japanese dish that you’ve probably had many times before, Yakitori.

Episode #0018 – Anime LA 2011 Review

The Otaku no Podcast crew are back from Anime Los Angeles and give their usual panel-style review of this convention.

Anime Los Angeles Day 3 Report

First things first: if you attended either of our workshops (podcasting and photography) and are looking for the notes pages for these, here they are: Photography notes, Podcasting notes.

Day 3 – the final day – of Anime LA was pretty low key. In fact I didn’t even make it to any panels. Most […]

Cool Find: Cooking with Dog

(no, it’s not what you think…)

I’ve talked and blogged about Japanese food before, as have our friends over at TJX. In fact I’ve even made a video or three on the subject. (In all fairness, the TJX crew did this as well.) But there’s something missing from our videos, something that would give […]

Anime Los Angeles Day 2 Report (Updated)

Well, Day 2 of Anime Los Angeles has ended. There were definitely more people here today than yesterday. I still could not begin to hazard a guess as to how many. Last year’s Anime LA was capped at 3200 and I’d say that there were at least that many people here today. Perhaps more.


Anime Los Angeles Day 1 Report (Updated)

Day 1 of Anime Los Angeles has drawn to a close. Unfortunately, as luck (and Murphy) would have it, we spent most of the morning and mid afternoon on the road. We barely got here in time for our first of two panels (but fortunately, we made it – barely). The panel went well, […]

Episode #0017 – 2010 Year in Review, Anime Style – Part 2: Rebirth

The Otaku no Podcast crew conclude their look back at the year 2010 – anime style. Be sure and listen to Part 1 as well! (Part 2 of 2)

Android users – Schedule your Anime-LA day with ConDroyd

For last year’s Anime Expo, the staff did what I believe to be the first ever anime convention schedule smartphone app. Their iPhone app was indeed pretty cool, and there was much to like about it. Unfortunately their charging $1.99 for it (on top of all the other fee hikes associated with the convention) […]

Episode #0016 – 2010 Year in Review, Anime Style – Part 1: Death

The Otaku no Podcast crew take a look back at the year 2010 – anime style. (Part 1 of 2)

My Anime Los Angeles schedule

Here is my Anime Los Angeles schedule. These are the things I might be interested in checking out and/or possibly get coverage for the podcast. Of course the standard disclaimers apply: I sometimes double- or even triple-book myself intentionally, the idea being that I am interested in multiple events at the same time slot and […]
