Squadcast Episode 13: Anime Expo or Three Busts

Gia, Dawn, and Naomi ponder their perfect convention guests, their preferred anime TV channel formats, their picks for the summer anime season, and all sorts of other on- and off-topic blather. Dawn almost made it through the podcast without mentioning House!

 
 
This week there was a lot of convention talk, from guests we know are coming to guests we'd like to have come. Dawn and Naomi and I also shared our hopes and fears for the upcoming summer anime season, Michael Jackson and other celebrity deaths, whether we'd wear the Lucky Star uniforms to our respective schools, and all sorts of other stuff. Here's a quick guide, since this episode was pretty long:

00:00 – Music from the Taishou Yakyuu Musume. PV.
01:20 – Our summer season picks (and anti-picks), starting with Naomi.
04:19 – You heard it hear first! Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is “darling.”
09:31 – If you could only watch ONE new show this summer, which would it be?
11:48 – Gia is all about the high-brow.
16:10 – GodLen did the coolest Michael Jackson tribute. End of story.
20:08 – What would you think if your school was going to wear the Lucky Star uniforms?
24:15 – We talk about what anime con guests we would drop everything to go see.
29:32 – Katsuyuki Konishi is awesome.
33:15 – Who will they cast as Al in the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood dub? Eep!
35:00 – Our Dream Anime Channels.
41:13 – Dawn talks about her positions. (Ahem.)
47:30 – Bye-bee! / Michael Jackson's “Remember the Time”
