FanimeCon 2011 Day 2 Report

Editor’s note: Unfortunately, I was not able to complete my daily reports while at-con due to a very nasty hard drive crash on my laptop. The good news is that no data was lost. The bad news is that this has delayed my reports until I could come home and fix things. I’ll post the […]

FanimeCon 2011 Day 1 Report

Day 1 of FanimeCon has drawn to a close. Unfortunately this day was spent mostly getting things set up logistically speaking – laying in supplies, picking up badges, etc. Our actual at-con time consisted mostly of watching the excellent Fanime Music Video (AMV) contest. (More on that later.)

Before we go any further, I’d like […]

Announcing a new anime convention for the Central California area

It’s no small secret that Otaku no Podcast is very California-centric when it comes to anime convention coverage. Unfortunately, financial reality being what it is, I can’t really afford a trip to any of the non-California conventions, both in terms of money (or the lack of it) and in terms of time. I’m even not […]

Want to go to Japan? Delta’s got a fare for you!

Psst – want to travel to Japan, but don’t have a lot of money? Well, if you act quickly, you can take advantage of a nice error on the part of Delta and fly to Japan’s Haneda International Airport for around $500! The poster of the article got quoted $589 for a round trip JFK […]

How to donate to the Japan disaster relief effort — and make it count

It has now been almost two months since the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11, and the country is still feeling its effects — frequent (and quite strong) aftershocks, a serious (though by no means dire) situation at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, a continuously mounting death toll, and incalculable losses […]

Air Video adds AirPlay support: now you can watch your anime on your Apple TV on the big screen!

The Apple TV is a decent little media center streaming box. It improves in every way over its predecessor – smaller, lighter, faster, and doesn’t give off over 9000 BTU of heat energy.

With it, you can rent and stream any of the (pretty large) anime collection that’s now available on iTunes, as well as […]

“We Heart Japan” event TOMORROW to benefit victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami

If you live in the Los Angeles area, you’ll want to get yourself over to Meltdown Comics, 7522 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046. We Heart Japan, organized by voice actress Stephanie Sheh and comic artist Pinguino Kolb, is holding an event TOMORROW (that’s Thursday, March 17) at Meltdown Comics to benefit the Japan NGO […]

8.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Japan

At 9:46 PM PST on March 10, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit approximately 125km off the eastern coast of Japan (Honshu) at a depth fo 10km, causing a 4 meter high tsunami to hit the coastal areas of Japan. Huge areas of the coast are literally being washed away. Sendai airport is literally flooded (pic). […]

K-ON! Vol.1 DVD and Blu-Ray coming out on April 26, pre-orders open now

What more needs to be said? (insert standard ranty rant about how Haters Gonna Hate, etc.)

Well, OK, I do actually have one comment. I must admit that I’m rather disappointed that Bandai is choosing to dole out K-ON! in segments. This first disk only contains 4 episodes, meaning that it will be split into […]

Crunchyroll app now available for Android devices

If you like the idea of high quality “all you can eat” streaming anime that you can enjoy anytime, anyplace, then in our humble opinion, you can’t beat a Crunchyroll membership. They have a truly awe-inspiring selection of titles, and they actively go after the latest and greatest from Japan. Many series that they feature […]
