Show 50 is also available in a lower quality format (in case you have a Nano or something) follow the link and add “LQ” to the end of the filename. It sounds much better as a 30 MB file, trust me.
“Even the Answerman is Wrong Sometimes” is based on a Japanese saying “Even a monkey falls out of a tree sometimes!”
We’ve been traveling a lot this year:
We’ve been watching:
– Nana anime & (manga)
– Le Chevalier d’Eon the anime as opposed to the manga. We love Chevalier and have to do a response to Dave & Joel’s review.
– Toppa Ten Gurren-Lagann (probably the breakout hit of the season)
– Buy Otaku USA issue 2!
– Jason Thompson wrote The Complete Guide to Manga, available this October.
– Thompson also does a webcomic/doujin called “King of RPGs”,
– Thompson used the “Yakfist” example. Sadly, “Yakfist” does not exist! (Yet.)
– You can listen to 100 manga magazines in 60 minutes on the Mangacast
– Shaenon Garrity writes Narbonic and the Overlooked Manga Festival
– Speaking of “Yakfist”, the movie “Zebraman” was really awesome!
– We recently watched Ratatouille (Recommended)
Japanese Lesson for this episode:
– Hisashiburi da ne? (Long time no see! Or, it’s been a while! What every badass says to the hero from off-camera before making a big entrance)
– Sentai (guardian)
– Bakamono (monster) —> THIS DOES NOT MEAN MONSTER! IT MEANS “STUPID PERSON!”
– Shinpai Ja Nai (don’t worry)
– Tenshi Ja Nai (I’m no angel)
– Alien Ja Nai! (I’m not an alien!)
– “Hackles” as in “His hackles stood up.”
