Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

Anime Expo 2012, Day 1: Let’s do the time warp again

Before we start, I’d like to apologize for any factual errors as well as grammatical errors/typos. It’s been a long day and I’m way too tired to do anything but a cursory look-over of this post.

Day 1 got off to a promising start – I actually managed to get out of bed before half […]

Anime Expo 2012, Day 0: And so it begins…

The best laid plans of mice and men… or so the old saying goes. We’d planned on arriving in Los Angeles sometime in the early afternoon so that we could leisurely pick up our press badges and catch at least some of the press conferences; but alas, it was not to be, thanks to a […]

Got any questions for the Anime Expo 2012 Guests of Honor? Ask ’em!

We’re now only 1 week away from Anime Expo (AIEEEEEEE!!!). Yeah, I know, I haven’t even finished up with FanimeCon stuff yet (quickly looks away to avoid accusing glares from certain bloggers). (although I really, really hope to be finished by this weekend.) You can blame my work – in order for my overlords to […]

Mikunopolis CD, DVD and Blu-ray releases are coming soon; pre-order today!

Those of you that missed Mikunopolis, the awesome Vocaloid concert that took place at this year’s Anime Expo, listen up! The release dates for the concert videos have been set!

But first, the bad news. These are only going to be released in Japan. Why they chose to do this, I have no idea. If […]

Did you miss Mikunopolis? We’ve got you covered!

Are you sad that you missed out on what was quite possibly THE event of the new millennium? Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. We’ve uploaded our video from the Mikunopolis concert to our YouTube channel. Go check ’em out today!

But first, the bad news. Unfortunately, the press weren’t exactly given the best seats […]

ChibiCast #0021 – Random-Updates-a-Gogo


Anime Expo 2011 videos are hitting the Otaku no Podcast YouTube channel

First of all, yes, I am well aware that there are no Anime Expo Day 2-4 updates. I’m sorry, but I just wasn’t able to get them done. By the time we got back to our hotel room each night, it was too late and we were way too tired to write anything even remotely […]

Anime Expo 2011 Day 0 & 1 Report

Anime Expo 2011 Day 1 has drawn to a close. Actually we’ve been here since Thursday, aka Day 0. So at long last here is our writeup!

Day 0 was spent mostly getting here, followed by press interviews. We had the great honor of interviewing Fred Gallagher of MegaTokyo fame, as well as the multi-talented […]

Got questions for the AX Guests of Honor?

Yes, it’s that time again, time for another Anime Expo. This time we’re actually going to try and bring you some actual coverage. To that end we have set up our new liveblog, which, after hours of experimentation, I have determined to be much easier (and much less vomit-inducing) than live video streaming.

And this […]

Anime Expo 2011 programming schedules are now live!

As Murphy’s Law would have it, mere hours after we released our latest episode, the fine folks at Anime Expo go and release their preliminary schedule. Would’ve loved to talk about it on the podcast, but what can you do? shrug Anyway, go forth and peruse the schedules for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. (You’ll […]
