Episodes of Animezing Podcast
159: In today's episode of Animezing Podcast, Kellen and James reach the halfway point of Gundam SEED. Some characters die, some reveal hidden identities, and a whole lot of them mope. Par for the course. We also see two of the series greatest episodes in "The End of the Sandstorm," "The Sea Dyed Red," "Fateful Encounter," "War for Two," and "The Land of Peace."
.: 1:34:08 :: 44.2 MB :: 05 March 2014 :.
158: In this episode of Animezing Podcast, Kellen and James begin a new arc, with a new villain that shares some qualities with a very popular Simpsons character. They also take some time to discuss a few recent Winnipeg anime functions, and the phenomenon that is Twitch Plays Pokemon. Of course, we can't forget todays episodes of Gundam SEED: "Burning Sandstorm," "Cagalli Returns," "Payback," "Fangs of the Enemy," and "On a Calm Day."
.: 1:26:54 :: 40.8 MB :: 19 February 2014 :.
157: In this episode of Animezing Podcast, Kellen and James gush about Tabitha St. Germain's performance as Flay Allster, and discuss the proper ways to recap the previous events of the series as they review the next five episodes of Gundam SEED: "The Awakening Sword," "Flay's Decision," "Stars Falling in Space," "Within Endless Time," and "The Respective Solitudes."
.: 1:18:01 :: 37.8 MB :: 05 February 2014 :.
156: As stated before, the social commentary presented in Gundam SEED was one of the things that drew a young Kellen and James to the program. In today's five episodes ("The Vanishing Gundam," "The Scar of Space," "Songstress of the Enemy Forces," "The Fading Light," and "Crossroads") we see this in the cohabitation of Lacus Clyne (a Coordinator) and Flay Allster (who is bigoted towards Coordinators). Listen on to see if this dynamic rings as loud for the duo now as it did in 2005.
.: 1:13:31 :: 35.9 MB :: 24 January 2014 :.
155: After a nearly three-month hiatus, Animezing Podcast is back! Kellen is joined by James to watch one of the duo's most long-cherished anime series: Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. While they were enamored at the age of 17 with the flying mechs, political intrigue, social commentary, and teenage angst, how will it fair now that both are in their mid-20s? See how the retrospective goes as they cover "False Peace," "Its Name: Gundam," "Collapsing Land," "Silent Run," and "Phase Shift Down."
.: 1:08:14 :: 31.8 MB :: 20 January 2014 :.
154: As we come to yet another Halloween, it's time for another commentary from Kellen Scrivens and James Trenchard. This year sees the duo cover Hellsing Ultimate OVA volume five.
.: 55:27 :: 26.0 MB :: 30 October 2013 :.
153: Animezing Podcast finishes up its review of Nerima Daikon Brothers with Kellen and Will reviewing the surprisingly serialized final four episodes. "Cook Up an Erection in Mine!," which the duo think deserved more care with its baseball puns. "Give My 'Bad' a Thrilla-Thriller!," which contains a simultaneously loving and scathing tribute to the King of Pop. "A Threesome in My Dome?!," which sees the culimation of many of the shows recurring gags. And "My Finish! Take a Look at This!," which contains ridiculousness that cannot be contained in this intro. In addition to that, Kellen discusses the show with the English voice of Ichiro: Christopher Patton.
.: 1:23:24 :: 40.2 MB :: 18 October 2013 :.
152: In this episode of Animezing Podcast, things get even weirder on Nerima Daikon Brothers. "Roll Mine, No. 1" features the most ridiculously domineering wife in all of media (as well as what may be a direct Simpsons homage). "My Backroom Fortune-Telling" involves hilarious duck puns. "Play with Mine! Sue Me!" sees the show take a very meta-humorous turn. And "My Dirt-Cheap Rocket is About to Launch!" involves a pink Darth Vader costume. Join Kellen and Will as they hack their way through this brier patch of absurdity.
.: 49:32 :: 24.0 MB :: 02 October 2013 :.
151: Kellen Scrivens and Will Ackerman begin their look at Shinichi "Nabeshin" Watanabe's wacky musical comedy, Nerima Daikon Brothers, by diving into the first four episodes: "Please Touch My Nerima Daikon," "Sa Rang Hey Yo with My Balls," "My Shot Will Crash into Your Backside," and "My Gadget (Detective) is Huge, Huh?" It must be stated that these are episode titles, and not suggestive or rhetorical questions on the part of the hosts.
.: 1:00:14 :: 29.2 MB :: 18 September 2013 :.
150: After nearly two months, Kellen finally had a chance to sit down and discuss 2013's edition of Ai-Kon. While this will not be an unbiased review (Kellen and Jon have been members of the Planning Committee and Volunteer Corps, respectively, for some time now), it is the most detailed and all-access look you will get at Manitoba's largest anime convention.
.: 3:11:01 :: 91.7 MB :: 12 September 2013 :.
149: In 2004, 4Kids Entertainment licensed One Piece for English adaptation. This adaptation has the reputation of being one of the worst adaptations ever produced. In 2007, after the license was dropped by 4Kids, Funimation Entertainment acquired the license and produced their own version. Kellen has watched through a significant amount of both of these versions of the show and asks the question: While the Funimation dub is better, was what 4Kids did really as bad as most make it out to be?
.: 28:09 :: 13.8 MB :: 21 August 2013 :.
148: Funimation: Inside the Industry with Sarah Sullivan, an Ai-Kon 2013 panel.
.: 56:16 :: 26.6 MB :: 25 July 2013 :.
147: Happy Hour with J. Michael Tatum, an Ai-Kon 2013 panel.
.: 1:01:36 :: 29.4 MB :: 24 July 2013 :.
146: Full Metal Patton with Chris Patton, an Ai-Kon 2013 panel.
.: 1:00:10 :: 29.2 MB :: 23 July 2013 :.
145: So You Want to Be a Voice Actor with Greg Ayres, Chris Patton, and J. Michael Tatum, an Ai-Kon 2013 panel.
.: 55:25 :: 26.8 MB :: 22 July 2013 :.
144: Kellen and James reach the end of Kaleido Star season one with a blast as they review the final six episodes: "The Amazing Mystery Star," "The Amazing Resolve Beneath the Mask," "The Legendary Amazing Maneuver," "The Amazing Intensive Training Continues," "An Amazing Bond," and "An Amazing Comeback." In lieu of actually doing a full review of the show's second season, New Wings, Kellen and James provide a quick rundown of why it's not being reviewed and some of the issues facing it.
.: 1:35:48 :: 46.3 MB :: 10 July 2013 :.
143: Sora's friends and family make the trek across the pond and the endgame of the first season of Kaleido Star begins to take shape as Kellen and James review "An Amazing Sinister Rumor," "Fire It Up! Amazing Mia," "Yuri's Amazing Trap," "Amazing Family Ties," and "An Amazing Change From Zero to Hero."
.: 1:18:47 :: 38.1 MB :: 28 June 2013 :.
142: The set of Kaleido Star episodes reviewed by Kellen and James today show some of the best and some of the worst that the series has to offer. "Anna's Not So Amazing Father" gives us comedy that is in no way funny. "An Amazing Hot New Production" and "The Amazing Competition Calls Up a Storm" provide some of the most awesomely ridiculous action sequences in any anime. "Mysterious Amazing Circus" has some of the worst repeating animation this side of the 1960s. And "The Diva's Amazing Love" breaks every concept of time imaginable. Join us for the soaring highs, the crushing lows, and the awkward middle ground as we hit the halfway point of Kaleido Star.
.: 1:14:25 :: 35.8 MB :: 12 June 2013 :.
141: In "The Amazing Seal," Sora takes a new pet home with her, hijinks naturally ensue. "The Amazing Girl Who Doesn't Smile" introduces us to diabolo world champion Rosetta. "An Amazing Star Even in Tough Times" introduces us to Layla's emotionally distant father (shockingly, a major character with living parents in this anime). Finally, as Kellen and James continue their review through Kaleido Star, "My Amazing Challenge for the Lead Role" and "Facing an Amazing Wall" sees the beginning of Kaleido Stage's production of The Little Mermaid. As an added bonus, friend of the show Eric Vale teaches you (yes, you) how to become an anime voice actor.
.: 1:11:40 :: 34.5 MB :: 31 May 2013 :.
140: After going through a four-month downer with Nana, Kellen decides to get happy again by teaming up with James Trenchard to begin covering the amazing first season of Kaleido Star! In "My Amazing Stage Debut!" we discover the effect of jet lag in the anime universe (none, for the record). In "My Amazing & Lonely Challenge!" we discover the power of the montage. In "The Amazing Distant Stage" we begin to discover that some cliches are abounding. In "Try Hard & You'll Get an Amazing Chance" we see how the death of a loved one can be used for character motivation. Send in "My Amazing Distant Family" we see the trope beaten to death.
.: 1:30:05 :: 43.5 MB :: 15 May 2013 :.
139: In this episode of Animezing Podcast, Kellen and Lisa review the final five episodes of Nana, and spoil most of the franchise beyond the anime. (You have been warned.) Terrible depression, the need for closure, and the announcement of the next series are all contained within. Music by Olivia Lufkin.
.: 1:49:05 :: 52.5 MB :: 01 May 2013 :.
138: In the penultimate group of Nana episodes, Kellen and Lisa notice that every minor character is played by Richard Ian Cox, bemoan the lack of visible drugs, imagine Takumi as Eric Cartman, discuss wedding paraphernalia, and our etymology in between actual analysis. Music in this episode is from Billy Talent.
.: 1:37:33 :: 47.1 MB :: 19 April 2013 :.
137: Kellen and Lisa celebrate five years of Animezing Podcast by depressing themselves greatly with the next five episodes of Nana. Two characters get engaged and move in to a lavish new apartment. Only in this show can that be made to be a horribly depressing fact. Music today is from Derek and the Dominos.
.: 1:47:19 :: 51.7 MB :: 03 April 2013 :.
136: On this very special episode of Animezing Podcast, thanks to Nana, we learn that unprotected sex plus woefully vague breakup lines don't end well. Who'da thunk it? In addition, Kellen and Lisa discuss the first round of guests announced for this years Ai-Kon. Music in this episode is from Bif Naked.
.: 1:41:40 :: 49.0 MB :: 20 March 2013 :.
135: Kellen and Lisa are rather capricious in this episode of Animezing Podcast as they cross the halfway mark of Nana. Music today is supplied by Mr. Big.
.: 2:10:24 :: 62.9 MB :: 06 March 2013 :.
134: This next batch of episodes of Nana score 49 out of a possible 50 points from Kellen and Lisa. Kellen sings some Kanye West, the duo discuss the method of lying to your friends, and a character drives Kellen to want to punch a voice in the throat. By the end of this we need to cheer up, so today's music is supplied by Prozzäk.
.: 1:31:35 :: 44.1 MB :: 24 February 2013 :.
133: The melodrama continues and keeps getting bigger as Kellen and Lisa review the next set of episodes from Nana. The usual complaints about Viz's treatment of the production remain, but the multiple relationship blowups, secrets being revealed, and the most screwed up 15 year old in all of anime keep the scores high. And to celebrate the breakups, we spin some No Doubt.
.: 1:36:55 :: 46.6 MB :: 11 February 2013 :.
132: In what may be the most emotionally draining episode of Animezing Podcast to date, Kellen and Lisa review five more episodes of Nana. Kellen freaks out about a couple changes in the Western release, as well as by a particular voice actress whose character debuts. In honor of the final episode reviewed, we throw in a song from the Foo Fighters. (For those wondering, audio quality is not perfect, but better than last time.)
.: 1:40:15 :: 48.3 MB :: 23 January 2013 :.
131: First order of business for 2013, while this podcast is not known for its incredible production, the audio quality of this episode is "Kellen on Earth-2.net The Show episode 15" bad (first podcast for the new laptop, still working the kinks out). That said, It's Kellen Scrivens and Lisa-Marie Carlson looking at the first seven episodes of one of the most heart-destroying anime ever created: Nana. And, as a bonus to make up for things, Kellen throws in a song by The Bouncing Souls.
.: 1:43:50 :: 50.1 MB :: 09 January 2013 :.
130: Animezing Podcast wraps up 2012 with Kellen and Hannah reviewing the final four episodes of Puella Magi Madoka Magica ("I'd Never Allow That to Happen," "I Won't Rely On Anyone Anymore," "The Only Thing I Have Left to Guide Me," and "My Very Best Friend"). The hosts consider one of these episodes to be possibly one of the best pieces of anime ever produced, but to understand why, it's best you have a listen.
.: 1:32:45 :: 44.8 MB :: 12 December 2012 :.
129: In "There's No Way I'll Ever Regret It," Sayaka gets her butt kicked by Kyoko, the new girl in town. In "This Just Can't Be Right," Homura appears to get through to her just a little bit. "Can You Face Your True Feelings?" sees Kyoko expressing and articulating to Sayaka why she feels how she does. And "I Was Stupid, So Stupid" shows Kyoko being there for Sayaka in her moment of need. Aside from this classic tale of the misunderstood bully, some really fucked up shit occurs in these four episodes. Par for the course in Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
.: 1:20:35 :: 38.8 MB :: 30 November 2012 :.
128: Kellen is joined by Hannah Krueger for the first of a trio of episodes discussing a fantastic twist on the Magical Girl genre: Puella Magi Madoka Magica. In the first episode, the pair review the first four episodes ("I First Met Her in a Dream, or Something...," "That Would Be Truly Wonderful," "I'm Not Afraid of Anything Anymore," and "Miracles and Magic Are Real") of what Hannah lovingly calls "The show that broke Kellen."
.: 1:08:25 :: 33.0 MB :: 14 November 2012 :.
127: Happy Halloween! All Hallows' Eve on Animezing Podcast means one thing: Kellen Scrivens, James Trenchard, and a commentary for Hellsing Ultimate OVA volume four.
.: 1:06:42 :: 32.3 MB :: 31 October 2012 :.
126: The Host Club befriends the heir of a mob family ("Mori-senpai Has an Apprentice Candidate!") who falls in love with Haruhi ("Tamaki's Unwitting Depression!"). We see the beginning of the Tamaki / Kyouya friendship ("And so Kyoya Met Him!"), and the Host Club faces dissolution ("The Host Club Declares Dissolution!") only to survive to see another day ("This is Our Ouran Fair!"). In addition, Kellen and Will discuss their overall feelings on the show, and get into a lengthy discussion about a certain NBC comedy.
.: 1:52:20 :: 54.1 MB :: 17 October 2012 :.
125: Things get interesting on this episode of Animezing Podcast as Kellen is joined by Kayla Bates (perhaps better known as Kagura4221973) of The Troubadoors to review Mamoru Hosoda's 2009 instant classic: Summer Wars. While both Kellen and Kayla praise the show in their own ways, things get heated on the topics of family relationships, Canada's standing in the world, and the whereabouts of Christopher R. Sabat. Be sure to check out The Troubadoors at www.thetroubadoors.com.
.: 53:25 :: 26.1 MB :: 05 October 2012 :.
124: In today's episode, "Kyoya's Reluctant Day Out!" furthers Will's suspicions, "Chika's 'Down with Honey' Declaration!" shows a scary new side to the lovable character, "Lobelia Girls' Academy Strikes Back!" causes Kellen to repent on his hatred of the Zuka Club, "The Door the Twins Opened!" leads to a spoiler-filled discussion about title cards ending a story, and "Until the Day it Becomes a Pumpkin!" furthers the budding love triangle between Haruhi and the Hitachin Twins. Also, Kellen adapts and sings songs from Clone High.
.: 1:23:10 :: 40.0 MB :: 03 October 2012 :.
123: I'm going to level with you right now: there's been some lying going on on Animezing Podcast. Last time we said two weeks 'til the next episode, but it took three. This time we say two weeks again, but it will only be one. We also said there would be five episodes of Ouran High School Host Club ("Big Brother is a Prince!," "Honey's Three Bitter Days!," "Haruhi in Wonderland!," "Covering the Famous Host Club!," and "The Refreshing Battle in Karuizawa!"), but we decided on the fly to cover a sixth ("Operation Haruhi and Hikaru's First Date!").
.: 1:30:15 :: 43.5 MB :: 26 September 2012 :.
122: As you may be able to tell from the album artwork, things get weird as Kellen and Will continue to cover Ouran High School Host Club. "The Grade School Host is the Naughty Type!" shows that the third music room comes with a suspended steel cage, "Jungle Pool SOS!" has man-eating crocodiles roaming free at a leisure resort, "The Sun, the Sea, and the Host Club!" has multiple near-rape scenes, "A Challenge from Lobelia Girls' Academy!" has feminist Nazis (RE: the artwork), and "A Day in the Life of the Fujioka Family!" introduces Haruhi's father (trust me, this also falls under weird).
.: 1:26:25 :: 41.6 MB :: 05 September 2012 :.
121: Will Ackerman makes his Animezing Podcast debut as he joins Kellen to begin their review of Ouran High School Host Club with the first five episodes ("Starting Today, You Are a Host!," "The Job of a High School Host!," "Beware the Physical Exam!," "Attack of the Lady Manager!," and "The Twins Fight!"). Find out how Kellen and Will felt about the characters' first impressions, the LGBT influence on the show, and just how many lines Travis Willingham had to speak as Mori.
.: 1:25:00 :: 40.9 MB :: 24 August 2012 :.
120: In this episode you will not find an unbiased review of Ai-Kon 2012. While President and Guest Services Officer Lisa-Marie Carlson and Corporate Communications Coordinator Kellen Scrivens believe they can do better, they are quite happy with the job they did. What you will get is an inside look at running a convention and all the perks and pressures that come with it. You may never find a convention head open up this much anywhere on the Internet.
.: 2:34:14 :: 75.3 MB :: 08 August 2012 :.
119: The Ouran High School Host Club Panel with Greg Ayres, Todd Haberkorn, and Monica Rial, an Ai-Kon 2012 panel.
.: 1:12:40 :: 35.3 MB :: 07 August 2012 :.

112: Convention Safety with Greg Ayres, an Ai-Kon 2012 panel.
.: 1:03:15 :: 30.5 MB :: 26 July 2012 :.
111: Ai-Kon Aftermath 2012 begins at the very end as Kellen shares his sitdown interview with Greg Ayres. Topics of discussion include what makes a convention great, Greg's history as a DJ, as well as a few words shared on BECK, and the next series to be covered on Animezing Podcast.
.: 40:40 :: 19.7 MB :: 25 July 2012 :.
110: Kellen and James finish off Mushi-Shi with the final six episodes ("Cotton Changeling," "Shrine in the Sea," "The Sound of Rust," "The Journey to the Field of Fire," "Eye of Fortune, Eye of Misfortune," and "The Sounds of Footsteps on the Grass").
.: 45:54 :: 22.4 MB :: 11 July 2012 :.
109: Kellen and James pull off something never thought possible on this podcast: they ccurately compare the scenario of a Mushi-Shi episode to an Adam Sandler movie. Which episode of the five reviewed ("Sunrise Serpant," "Pickers of Empty Cocoons," "Clothes that Embrace the Mountain," "String from the Sky," and "A Sea of Writings") is it, and what movie could possibly be compared to this show? All the answers, and a Winnipeg weather update, are concealed within.
.: 37:49 :: 18.5 MB :: 29 June 2012 :.
108: In the middle episodes of Mushi-Shi, Kellen begins to come around on the show, while James' love is reaffirmed. "The Sleeping Mountain," "One-Eyed Fish," "One-Night Bridge," "Inside the Cage," and "Pretense of Spring" all receive favorable grades, but which one is a standout episode of the pack and why?
.: 38:34 :: 18.9 MB :: 13 June 2012 :.
107: Kellen and James continue through Mushi-Shi with the second group of episodes ("Those Who Inhale the Dew," "Raindrops and Rainbows," "Where Sea Meets Man," "The Heavy Seed," and "The White Which Lives Within the Ink Stone"), and while the show still does have some problems at its core, there is reason to be hopeful.
.: 35:53 :: 17.6 MB :: 30 May 2012 :.
106: Kellen and James said they would never do a show blind after their last debacle, but here they are reviewing the first five episodes of Mushi-Shi. It's a program never seen by Kellen, and only in passing by James. While it's not as bad as Blue Drop, just how much does it fly over the low bar?
.: 37:56 :: 18.7 MB :: 18 May 2012 :.
105: Kellen is back from his vacation, and he has some stories to tell. How does a giant comic convention like C2E2 fare if you are primarily an anime fan? How many ways can airlines and hotels almost screw over your vacation? And what kind of zaniness did Kellen get into with the Earth-2.net crew? The answers to all are within, as well as some short reviews of Carl Macek's Robotech Universe and Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker.
.: 31:14 :: 15.3 MB :: 02 May 2012 :.
104: Kellen and Mike just can't express the emotion contained in the final six episodes of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad as "Write Music," "Performance Eve Festival," "Festival," "Third Stage," "Slip Out," and "America" receive near-universal praise from the hosts. Kellen is later joined by the voice of Maho, Brina Palencia, for a quick chat about her role in the show.
.: 2:36:40 :: 75.3 MB :: 18 April 2012 :.
103: In the penultimate BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad review episode, Kellen sings along and Mike does some method reviewing as the duo tackles the next set of episodes: "Indies," "Three Days," "Leon Sykes," "Blues," and "Greatful Sound."
.: 1:49:05 :: 52.5 MB :: 04 April 2012 :.
102: Somewhere between talking about sports, wrestling, Canada's Official Languages Act, and an upcoming convention in Chicago, Kellen and Mike review the middle batch of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad episodes ("Summer Vacation," "Secret Live," "Ciel Bleu," "Dream," and "Back to School").
.: 1:55:55 :: 55.8 MB :: 23 March 2012 :.
101: Kellen and Mike continue their look through BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad with the second group of five episodes. Then Kellen is joined by the voice of Ryusuke, Eric Vale.
.: 2:06:25 :: 60.8 MB :: 07 March 2012 :.
100: It's the 100th episode, and the BECK-travaganza continues as Kellen is joined by Michael David Sims to review the first five episodes of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad. Kellen sings, Mike recounts his awkward high school years, and a good time is had by all as Animezing Podcast hits the century mark.
.: 1:49:52 :: 53.0 MB :: 22 February 2012 :.
099: After nearly two months of waiting, Animezing Podcast is back! And because you all waited so patiently, we are beginning the BECK-travaganza an episode early. Today, Kellen sits down to discuss the show with co-director Taliesin Jaffe.
.: 36:45 :: 17.8 MB :: 15 February 2012 :.
098: On Christmas Eve, three homeless people discover an abandoned baby, and a quirky adventure to find her parents begins in Satoshi Kon's 2003 movie Tokyo Godfathers. Kellen and James take a look at this flick, and one thing is abundently clear: this is the most sense Satoshi Kon has ever made.
.: 23:07 :: 11.5 MB :: 14 December 2011 :.
097: Kellen and Randy wrap up their look at FLCL (Fooly Cooly) in style. Join us for discussions on South Park's popularity in Japan, an almost endless stream of Community references, and plenty of stuff about the topic at hand, too.
.: 52:35 :: 25.4 MB :: 01 December 2011 :.
096: On this episode of Animezing Podcast, Kellen is still scratching his head a bit as he joins Randy Forbister to review the first three episodes of FLCL (Fooly Cooly). But for all the head-scratching of horns, robots, Vespas, and giant steam-producing factories, the two can agree on one thing: this stuff is good.
.: 1:15:11 :: 36.4 MB :: 16 November 2011 :.
095: With Halloween just around the corner, it is once again time for Kellen and James to bring you the 3rd annual commentary of the Hellsing Ultimate OVA series. Also Kellen makes a major announcement for Episode 100 (for real this time, we promise).
.: 55:21 :: 26.8 MB :: 19 October 2011 :.
094: After suffering through nine episodes of Blue Drop, the final four ("Cirsium," "Thoroughwort," "Cosmos," and "Rosmarinus") finally break Kellen and James. The guys throw the format out, Kellen begins to apologize to anyone who's seen this show, and James eventually starts drinking as the two deliver some of the angriest rants in the history of the Earth-2.net family of podcasts. Also, Kellen makes an announcement about a future episode.
.: 30:28 :: 14.1 MB :: 05 October 2011 :.
093: Things come to a boiling point for Kellen and James as they continue with the next three episodes of Blue Drop: "Crinum," "Hyoscyamus Niger," and "Laganaria Siceraria." One of these episodes shows the potential the series could have had, while the other two frustrate to no end. Which is which? The answer lies within.
.: 28:01 :: 13.1 MB :: 21 September 2011 :.
092: As Kellen and James continue on with the next three episodes of Blue Drop ("Dahlia Pinnata," "Garden Verbena," and "Campanula"), the duo looks for anything they can enjoy from this show and hold on to it for dear life, as comparisons are made to much better shows like Azumanga Daioh, Rumbling Hearts, and Clone High.
.: 29:25 :: 13.7 MB :: 07 September 2011 :.
091: From the first three episodes of Blue Drop, James and Kellen can't help but notice similarities to a recently reviewed show on Animezing Podcast. A lady-heavy cast, amnesia, and people who are just plain stupid. Where have they heard that before? Will "Hydrangea," "Lavandula," and "Datura" impress?
.: 35:58 :: 17.6 MB :: 24 August 2011 :.
090: The longest episode of Animezing Podcast to date features everybody's favorite summer party: Ai-Kon. Kellen is joined by Randy, Steph, James, and special guest Jennah Bullaro in a look back on all the crazy fun of the convention's 10th anniversary.
