It’s the annual trivia episode! For the first time, we have TWO special trivia guests: Christina Rose and Jason Moses, freelance Japanese to English otaku translators whose most recent gig is Super Robot Wars 30, out now on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch (check the comments for additional details regarding how to get the Switch version and DLC in English), and for the first time with no region lockout, PC via Steam!
Introduction (0:00 – 25:30)
We may know who Christina and Jason are, and we may know what this whole “Super Robot Wars” thing is, but that doesn’t mean YOU do! We give them the opportunity to explain how they got into this whole sordid situation and what’s so super about these robot wars anyway, for the benefit of everybody out there who has never typed the word “akurasu” into their web browser address bar. Like Tim Eldred.
- Christina’s Twitter LP of a King of Fighters visual novel
- Dave Cabrera’s SRW Let’s Play was unfortunately deleted from the Internet forever when he deleted his Livejournal, and no archive backup exists. But he’s on Twitter, still blowing our minds and stealing our hearts
Promo: Right Stuf Anime (25:30 – 27:30)
The Holiday Sale is underway! Everything is on sale, plus, each day there’s a new Mega Deal. The weekly specials are also going on as well, so if you’ve got gift shopping to do (or just buy stuff for yourself at a discount) now is the time when you have to ask the tough questions like “do I REALLY need to buy a vacuum cleaner when instead, I could spend that money on getting all of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure in hardcover?” Plus, if you use our affiliate link to visit their site we’ll get a commission, which we use to help support our
definitely not out of control pornography addiction podcast hosting expenses.
Trivia! (25:30 – 2:31:50)
It’s the usual three rounds worth of questions from categories of questionable merit, though the ones with the most merit (and difficulty) are listener-submitted. Revel as none of us know the answers to things we really should be able to answer, considering we own these things or did reviews of these things or grew up with these things. Tim Eldred won’t believe we didn’t get the alphabetical order of the Yamato movies right.
- HiDive has many great titles, such as the one true Colorful here
- Todd McFarlane’s interview with The Comics Journal
- The official Oishinbo YouTube channel
Closing (2:31:50 – 3:01:35)
This was originally part of the introduction, but it ran a little long so we figured we’d put it here instead. As it turns out, several of the titles that we’ve discussed on AWO in the past (check the Review Index up top for the list!) are titles that have been featured in Super Robot Wars. We go through the list. And mention Tim Eldred one more time.
