We only had 90 minutes this year, and we tried to run about 60% new selections compared to last year. So if you’re reading this and are shocked–SHOCKED!–that we didn’t show Cowboy Bebop, Sengoku Basara, or other “obvious picks” past favorites…those are the two reasons why. No fun showing the same clips of the same stuff each year…well, more than half the time, anyway! Depending on your point of view, we then ended Openings/started DOOM! using the promotional video for the upcoming Space Dandy. We’ll try and get a DOOM! report up on the Anime Hell blog soon enough and link to it here.

  1. I’ve always wanted to know what you guys felt about the Anime 3000 show “The Other Side”? They seem to have similar taste to you guys, albeit a little more on the extreme side.

  2. ¿Cuando es el próximo episodio? [“When is the next episode?”]

    [In a week or so…? I’ll be on ANNCast Friday! –Daryl]

  3. Thanks for answering Daryl! I’m not actually Spanish by the way – I just thought it might be less obnoxious if I put a bit of a spin on the question. I’m sure it comes out whenever you guys have time. I’m still enjoying the show after, what, 7 years?
