Starz Media (owners of Manga Entertainment) and dubbing studio Bang Zoom! have reportedly united to create a new anime video podcast kinda deal called “Manga Minutes,” which is-- by virtue of being run by two companies who are directly involved in anime but not manga –probably going to be more anime-focused than the name suggests, although they will also cover manga and games.

Not only that, but the video cast is animated-- it features two cartoon hosts named Yoko and Rogue, who are presumably voiced by Bang Zoom! voice actors (I'm not even going to pretend to be able to identify them by voice-- feel free to educate me in the comments if you can).

Fifteen episodes are up on, so I watched through an episode. It wasn't half bad, especially if you're looking for reviews, but...I do have some trepidation. Namely...Bang Zoom!, what about your AnimeTV? Are you going to compete with yourself here? On the other hand, AnimeTV hasn't posted a new episode since Anime Expo (July '08), but the website talks about a contest ending this month, and also promises a second season schedule coming soon.

So what's the deal, Bang Zoom!?
