Anime World Order Show # 99 – We’re All Your Problems and Luftballons

This is the most un-weekly podcast ever. It’s been yet another month since episodes. You know what we were doing during that time? Being at Otakon 2011, followed by Anime Festival Orlando 2011. This is our convention report for the former.

As far as guest appearances go: Daryl was on Ed Sizemore’s Manga Out Loud podcast talking about “why do they come to the anime con” with Charles Dunbar. Yes, eventually it does contain stuff you haven’t heard mentioned on this podcast. Near future installments of the OSMCast! will feature Gerald talking with the guys about…uh…”the new Makoto Shinkai movie,” and another episode in which Daryl talks about Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: The Sacred Star of Milos. In the meantime, Daryl was also a guest on The Greatest Movie EVER! yet again, this time talking about the undisputed greatest film of 2011, Drive Angry starring Nicolas Cage and William Fichtner as themselves. Daryl is also a guest on the ANNCast along with Mike Toole, who we will have back on this podcast at uh, some point. But WHEN? There is a new poll for you to vote on, and the one with the most–OR PERHAPS LEAST–votes will be the winner!

We actually did a Let’s News segment again! It’s about the launch of the new digital manga web portal thingy JManga. We talk about what they’re doing right and what they really need to change. In so doing, we touch upon most all of digital comics distribution overall.

Promo: Anime Graruru
You know how freaking long it’s been since we ran a promo on this podcast? Forever. It’s not that we hate people. Part of it is that people don’t send us promos that often, but the main part is that we just keep forgetting to put them in places. I don’t know what a Graruru is, nor would I have understood what the heck the name of this podcast even was had they not literally spelled it out for us in this promo. But whatever. Every episode of this podcast features two dudes talking about something that is probably pretty damn good. Except for Bakemonogatari. And Angel Beats. Fuck that bullshit.
