It’s our annual Thanksgiving trivia episode! We’re joined this time by the highly versatile writer Kara Dennison (@RubyCosmos), who in addition to writing prose fiction also contributes to Crunchyroll and Otaku USA as well as a bunch of other places we can’t remember. As Lupin the Third would say, compared to her we’re stumblebums.
Introduction (0:00 – 17:32)
We talk to Kara about her endeavors, like how she contributed to a Sherlock Holmes anthology, helped officially subtitle Mazinger Z, and how she’s been diving into Digimon and Lupin the Third lately. The conversation eventually turns towards old parody dubs and we start reminiscing about Roadbusted. It’s on YouTube now!
Trivia Round One (17:32 – 1:19:27)
Technical problems won’t hold us back from disappointing you again, though it does mean that Gerald had to omit the audio category. Although Daryl can cue up and play audio files to a voice call with ease, that’s because he has audio interface hardware and it’s trickier to do purely through software means because you can think everything is working during solo/single person tests but it doesn’t once multiple users are present. The questions, as usual, are contributed by LISTENERS LIKE YOURSELVES so be sure to listen along and lambast us for not knowing simple things that you definitely know the answer to. Alternatively, be AMAZED at the things we do know the answers to! I’m sure some of you out there are like that, anyway.
Promo: Right Stuf Anime (1:19:27 – 1:21:55)
It’s the annual weekly Black Friday sale, where pretty much everything is on sale. Look for bundle package deals for manga, DVDs/Blu-Rays, and even figurines. Best of all, the free shipping limit is (for now) once again back to the pre-COVID value of $50! Why, you could just preorder GaoGaiGar and hit that threshold (or be a few dollars shy if you save the additional 10% with the Got Anime? membership).
Trivia Round Two (1:21:55 – 2:04:22)
For the second round, you’ll get to delight yourself listening to us try and pronounce words in French, discuss the finer distinctions between Superbook and The Flying House, and everybody’s favorite thing: us hating on Sola Digital Arts. You know, the typical AWO experience!
