I love this question. We definitely want your topics for discussion - send them to me via Twitter @ANNZac
, or better yet email me email@example.com with the subject ANNCAST TOPIC and we will absolutely get to it on the show. Thanks for listening!
Well, I mean, I love that show - I think it's close to the best anime I've ever seen, so yeah, I think you should just run out and buy it.
Funimation has the first four episodes of Wolf's Rain up for streaming! And it's the phenomenal English dub:
If you're lucky you'll get a wildly misleading trailer for GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE beforehand that makes it look like an action-packed thrill ride!
Man I played a little more this weekend and that game is charming as hell. I'm enjoying the story - I started doing some sidequests and that was really satisfying too. It's a really solid game, and I hope I have time for more soon.
Sure - Gurren Lagann, Fate/Zero, Samurai Champloo, Tatami Galaxy, Toradora!, Mushishi, Rose of Versailles. Plenty more, too - we'll probably wind up pulling from that poll a few more times. We're happy with the choice, though - those Bakemonogatari reviews are doing well for us so far.
That's an interesting idea, adding it to the preview guide so we get the same variety of opinion. The issue is resurrecting the guide months afterward - Netflix isn't going to make the show available until after it's finished, I don't think. I think people might be confused if suddenly the Winter 2017 Guide is being resurfaced in like, April.
But there's a way to do this without confusing readers, I think. Thanks for the idea!
it's still a snail then, stop being so fucking judgmental
Nah - you can tell the Shirobako girls apart easily enough, I think. They have different hair. Also that show has a Main Character and it's mostly about her, so I feel like the other girls fall into "supporting cast" territory pretty quickly.
Nope! Probably should've seen that instead of SILENCE, which was kind of a letdown. I'll go this week.
We're going to wind up covering a lot of stuff closer to the bottom of the poll if only due to the lower number of shows overall. We have enough writers to capably cover about 27-28 shows without breaking much of a sweat, so we're gonna wind up writing about a lot of that downballot stuff. It'll be fun! Maybe some of it will surprise us.
Haha, yes, that is Rule #1 for daily streaming classic from here on out. Whatever the show is, it'll be available on a major streaming service.
In hindsight that was a really weird, stupid choice. I loved Nick's reviews, but yeah, obviously the show needs to be available.
