After the news Millennium gives a final review of The Division, I give a review of Tormentum: Dark Sorrow, and we finish up with talk of food and anime!

This week we start the show on a rather dark note, Ryo is back to join Red but the reasons behind her absence are finally explained in detail. However the dark theme doesn’t end there, as the industry news and the previews are all on the dark side of things. But fear not loyal listeners, there is a light at the end of that tunnel and that light is called Otakon!

Welcome to the second previews show of the 2016 anime season, and a show completely devoid of Ryo. That’s right, the intrepid and often sickly Ryo has taken a bit of a sabbatical to recover. Meanwhile, Red has gotten a guest host from the past to return; Spirewrecker from the 4Player Anime Cast! After a brief reintroduction, Red and Spire kicks things off with IRL news which quickly segues into Industry News which is bursting with content this week! Hentai Manga Authors getting licensed, Anime Authors evading taxes, and the controversy that is the live-action GitS. Afterwards both hosts dig into three more anime from the spring catalogue: Hundred, Kiznaiver, and Big Order. Don’t miss out on this one folks!

So we sat down for a nice little chat with Laura (Ahri in League of Legends, Rosalia in Sword Art Online), Lisle Wilkerson (Tekken, Street Fighter), and Julie Rei Goldstein (Risai in Paradise Kiss and Precia Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).

Greetings everyone. In place of an AP show this week I offer this interview of Hagio Moto. We were lucky in that Weltall was able to get an interview with this pioneer of shojo manga. I have undertaken the transcription of the Japanese portion of the conversation, for those interested. The translator that was provided was very good. In addition to translation Ms. Hagio’s answers he also added some extra context as he felt was needed. I only transcribed the questions and the Japanese section of the interview.

It was the Asama Shinkansen between Tokyo and Nagano. We start off with a pic of good old Pikachu and the fire monkey (names will not be included other than Pikachu because I don’t know them.
