Anime World Order Show # 1 – The Legacy of Shame Begins

It’s our inaugural podcast! After we introduce ourselves, Clarissa offers up a review of Ai Yazawa’s manga title Nana, Gerald discusses the Often Overlooked classic Animal Treasure Island, and Daryl rants about Fortune magazine’s attempt to get investors for a live action Evangelion.

It’s our inaugural podcast! Find out about the trumped-up credentials of our Japanese cartoon-viewing hosts and why you should listen to us instead of those other podcasts that AREN’T recorded on Skype! (00:00 – 11:48)

Let’s News! (11:48 – 23:38)

Bandai Visual enters the US anime market, and ADV is dubbing Macross! Again! It’s different from Robotech, no really!

Review (23:39 – 32:17)

Clarissa explains it all by telling us all about the Nana manga by Ai Yazawa. See? We CAN write sentences that aren’t exclamations!

Often Overlooked (32:18 – 42:02)

Gerald weighs in on Discotek’s new DVD release, Animal Treasure Island. Hey, Hayao Miyazaki worked on that!

Rotating Segment – The Soapbox Rant / Conspiracy Theory (42:03 – 1:03:40)

Daryl Surat doesn’t have a recliner of rage just yet, but that doesn’t stop him from ranting and raving about Fortune magazine’s recent article on anime. Bet you didn’t know that it’s all a secret plan to make investors interested in funding ADV’s live-action Evangelion movie, huh?! As this a rotating segment, this won’t be something done every week. Future episodes will include things such as creator spotlights, convention coverage, hentai / yaoi discussion, and so on.

Closing (1:03:41 – 1:05:51)
