GUNDAM STYLE BOYYEE
Now I should say for the record I did actually want my two guests from this and last week on at the same time to discuss their journeys in Japan on a single episode but each had so much to offer I decided to split this into two separate podcasts and it’s certainly clear to me after this episode…..that was a damn good idea
Most of y’all know I have been waiting a good LONG TIME to have M Habib Rahman on the podcast in general, well today he is going to share his experience with us on HIS trip to Japan which for the record is not quite the same adventure as Kimono-Joe’s from our last episode.
As you’ll soon find out Habib is a BEAST on the mic and on this ep he gives us an extremely comprehensive look at his dealings in Japan. LOL I really could have called this episode “OTAKU UNLEASHED” cuz this dude really went all out…..I find myself jealous just listening to Hab go on about such things as
The Tokyo Game Show, Maid Cafes, Akihabara, Mandarake, Muv-Luv, Otaku Shopping, The Resident Evil Bar, The Gundam Bar, The Capcom Bar, Star driver, More shrineing / sightseeing and a WHOLE LOT MORE…..including some quick chatter on the FATE franchise near the end of the cast.
Golly, between this episode, the previous episode and the before-mentioned blog write ups how can anyone not want to check out Japan… be you Otaku or otherwise.
Personally I’m revved up to go to Japan myself
Thanks again to my guest’s – M Habib Rahman & Kimono Joe for the insights.
YOU CAN CHECK OUT ALL OF HABIB'S JAPAN PICS ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE WHICH WILL HAVE THE PHOTO ALBUM PUBLIC FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO (LATE-JAN 2013)
And that’s all folks…next time…business as usual
I’m Out…One love…Peace….and….Sayonara!
On this episode of Damn Right Everything Anime & Manga we e are taking a little detour and are heading east to the motherland of our beloved mediums of anime and manga JAPAN!
Today we have a very special guest of honour who joins me on the mic to discuss a wondrous 11 day trip to Japan that happened back in 2009
You may remember this young fellow as the gentleman who defended and clarified the many interesting aspects of the Brony Subculture in the presence of Spill.com podcasters Korey Coleman and Leon on the ACOCO podcast last August *LINK PLUG*
Kimono Joe is his name and everything in geek subculture is his game.
It was a pleasure to share the mic with this humble young man and on this episode he gladly divulges his goings in the anime motherland.
To name just a few things discussed….
Japanese food / landscape, Temples, The manga museum, Wakfu, Otaku Shopping, travelling etiquette, Jiro, traditional hot springs, unpleasant travelling companions and generally some advice for people who may be thinking about going to Japan for the first time….to name a few topics
Joe has also been kind enough to share his youtube picture slideshow
And as mentioned on the podcast Joe is looking for some constructive criticism on his growing artwork so hit him up on his deviant art page below….as well as his other social channels’
Again, thanks for coming aboard Joe, hope to have you on again in future episodes
Alrightee, for our first 2013 episode we will be reviewing the much revered anime 2012 series Sword Art Online
There was a Ri-DONKULOUS amount of hype and buzz all through 2012 for this series and sadly although we also intended to talk about two other titles on this episode, once again Myself (Donwun) & Nuansay go off on a bit of a tangent with our thoughts and feelings about this show taking up all the show time we had (insertsadfacehere)
I think most people can already have a feel for how this review is going to go but hey for some reason Skype itself also decided to become sentient and even give it’s own opinion of the show!?! Wth!?!
Yes people Skype is very much alive and is monitoring all our conversations….and apparently really likes this series…..lol…I dunno…I guessed we really pisssed Skype off this tyme!
Well anyway, apologies to ppl with their emails requests, things are pretty hectic in our personal lives atm so the podcast production will suffer….but never fear – we are still alive and kicking and things should hopefully turn around through the progression of the year
So anyhow, here’s our thoughts on SAO – love it or hate it :oP
I like how Nuansay put it "This review is as confused as this series" lol classic!
Let’s get this discussion started up early so when we do eventually get to see the real Goku Vs Superman DEATHBATTLE we can see who had the best call on the victor
This page will be updated with the Official Video once its uploaded but for now check out the trailer and a humorous fan made version
Also because I’m too lazy to type out all my opinions I did a mini podcast with some added opinions on the face off
HERE IS THE (UN)OFFICIAL MATCH RUNDOWN PAGE WITH DETAILED INFO ON OUR CONTESTANTS
Leave your thoughts on who you think WILL win, who you WANT to win and your reasons for both
The Old Boy will be taking cash bets for the event…ask him for details (no refunds)
OFFICIAL SCREWATTACK DEATHMATCH VIDEO
It’s been a while since we did a review episode hasn't it. So we thought we’d catch up on some long overdue review-to do’s as we come to the final month of 2012
So on this episode we got myself, Old Boy, Angel & Nuansay giving our humble opinions on the titles listed below…..which should all be checked out btw
As usual we do veer off topic slightly here and there and mention more details about the now CLOSED DDPC 2012 Competition……..a big shoot-out to everybody who participated btw.
but yeah that’s pretty much it for this one
So enjoy and be merry!
