Show #097 – Direct Download:

We talk with @DWashington999 about upcoming events to look forward to at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2011.

Be sure to check out all the Ninja Consultant panels at AWA this weekend:

  • Unusual Manga Genres: Friday, 6:00 PM Room 106
  • 21 + Manga and Anime: Saturday, 9:00 PM Room 106
  • Culinary Manga: Sunday, 2:00 PM, Room 106

Admittedly, there is an annoying buzzing noise on the the line when Darius talks on the phone. I didn’t figure out a way to fix it fast enough before the convention, but listeners proficient with Audacity who’d like to take a crack at fixing it are invited to email ninjaconsultant at gmail and I’ll send a link to the original files.

OP:  "マジLOVE1000%" by ST☆RISH, the ending theme of Uta no Prince-sama (here's my review of Uta on Shelf Life)

If this 50mb file is hilariously too large for you, there is a low quality version here.

Show #93 – Seinen Up!! at Genericon 2011

Show #093 – Direct Download:

ED: "Now You’re A Man" by DVDA

@mangacast‘s Seinen Up!! Panel from Genericon 2011.

Apparently this recording was done by monkeys, and as such I apologize for the popping noises throughout. I tried to also remove many of the more awkward pauses, but not all of them, as I have other things to do today. Despite the poor quality, it’s worth toughing this one out for the following reasons:

  • There’s a mention of the true author of Lone Wolf and Cub
  • Ed says shojo is basically dead
  • Learn the entire history of manga! (Almost.)
  • You can learn about the state of the manga industry in France
  • …and more!

Show #92 – Culinary Manga NYCC 2010

Show #092 – Direct Download:

Here is a recording of our Culinary Manga panel from New York Comic Con last fall. I believe it was recorded by Spiraken originally, on an iphone, so the sound quality isn’t great.

@samkusek is also on this panel, and is a major contributor of content.

You can follow along by downloading the PDF of the Powerpoint presentation.

Here is the video played in the middle:
