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!

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.

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.
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.
