Show #59 – Ogiue Maniax

Show #059 Direct Download:

OP and ED: “20th Century Boy”” by T. Rex in reference to 20th Century Boys by Naoki Urasawa

An interview with Carl, the Ogiue Maniax blogger at New York Comic Con 2008.

More notes coming soon. We recorded more audio than this but the echo effect on the mixer was turned on and it sounds terrible. I also accidentally deleted a lot of what Noah and the Angry Otaku recorded. It doesn’t matter, since one of the mics was off.

Show #54 – AWA AWO Panel with Daryl Surat and Paul Chapman

Show #054 Direct Download:

OP: “Born” by Miwako Okuda, the opening theme from Le Chevalier D’Eon
ED: “Over Night” by Aya, the end theme from Le Chevalier D’Eon

Noah and I announce our plans for New York Anime Festival which is next weekend: December 7th, 8th, and 9th.

Recorded live at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2007, (Erin’s con report here), this was originally scheduled as Anime World Order’s podcasting panel, but we filled in along with Paul “Fear the Gooberzilla” Chapman from The Greatest Movie Ever Podcast. We mostly gossip about AWO, and briefly review Le Chevalier D’Eon. Noah makes fun of the state of academic writing. I hope he’s prepared to defend himself in academic papers.

Our T-shirts are still for sale, by the way! Email ninjaconsultant @ gmail . com – $12 for U.S. orders, $14 international, and if you’re attending NYAF, they’re just $10. Buttons of the same design are just 25 cents each, plus 41 cents postage.

Show #23 Recorded Live on My Cell Phone at AnimeNext 2006

Show #023 Direct Download:

Music: Obsession by Animotion, and Everybody Have Fun Tonight by Wang Chung. There’s a reason for the Wang Chung, but not for Obsession. I just had my ’80’s Greatest Hits CD out and remembered liking the instrumental opening to Obsession.

Recorded Live at AnimeNext!!

A lot of dealers had just come from A-Kon, and many of the dealers, cosplayers, and attendees had also been at Anime Boston a few weeks before.

Promos, Bumper:

Eeper’s Choice Podcast the only Irish anime podcast.
Anime World Order
Weekly Anime Review (on hiatus at the moment)

  • We use clips from Anime World Order episode 23: Decadence, Depravity, and Disasters
  • OMGZBBQ Vic Mignoa’s giant ego was a repressive cloud over the entire convention. The man is a demon who eats the fangirl life-energy of underage girls like a bad Sailor Moon villain.
  • Noah helped dye my hair.
  • I was impressed by the Whistle cosplayers. The boys of the Mangacast assured me I should definately read it!
  • Also note that I thought Whistle was just a manga, but it’s also an anime series.
  • I cosplayed as Tamaki from Host Club. We need a Hunny for our Otakon group, but I might have already tricked got a friend to do it, so Soar is off the hook. He might be too tall anyway.
  • Noah and I called AWO from the Otakugeneration live show in order to be on three podcasts at once. It kind of worked, but AWO hasn’t played the voicemail yet.
  • I helped nickname someone on the Otakugeneration live show, but I came off sounding like an ass. My line of thinking was this: What would OG do? So I tried to nickname someone Porco Rosso. It didn’t really work out.

Show 22b – Anime Boston 2006 Part 2 – Con Stories

Show #022b Direct Download:

Music: 7 O’Clock News by Tokio, and Panic by Still Small Voice. These songs were the original opening and ending songs to the first 40-ish episodes of Kodocha, a show which we recommend to anyone age 11 and over. Funimation couldn’t get the rights to the Tokio song, and we really can’t imagine the opening without it, but it’s still totally worth watching the series. With your daughter!

The Chibi Project

How many people attended Anime Boston? Well, that page doesn’t say yet, but we heard it was up from 7,500 last year to 10,000 this year.

We talk a lot about Death Note cosplayers and fans. If you want an “L” t-shirt look for our table at Otakon.


Noah talks like an M.I.T. recruiter. Here’s MIT’s Anime Club’s homepage. Did you know that MIT has appeared in several anime series?

The Bishounen Support Corps Here’s their photo collection. You can email them at bishounen-support-corps AT mit DOT edu, and talk about them in this forum thread.


I talked to an Itachi from Bergen Community College’s Anime Club, who I ran into two weeks later at AnimeNext.

I thought the Happy House of Hentai’s new promo was really funny, so I stuck it in this show. Hopefully you won’t get their jokes if you’re under 16 or so.

Do you know who Cthulhu is?


Buddy Christ is from Dogma. But Kevin Smith’s only worthwhile film is Clerks. And the animated Clerks cartoon is worthwhile. Particularly episode five. It’s only ten bucks, so if I’m wrong it’s no big deal.

The episode of Otakugeneration where Bryce talks about the hentai dubbing panel. Well, it’s probably that episode.

Lupin the 3rd is a Ninja Consultant Approved Show.

theanimefanboy talks about playing Duck Duck Goose.

Alison’s L print that got licked.


Noah and I really hated X3.

Show 22a – Anime Boston 2006 Part 1 – Your First Con Experience!

Show #022a Direct Download:

Music: From the winning AMV of Anime Boston 2006, by the Italian AMV creator Marisa Panaccio used the song “Håll Om Mig” by the Swedish singer Nanne Grönvall set to the often-over-looked-except by Shojou fans series Princess Tutu.

This AMV makes Princess Tutu look like an even better show than it actually is (after 8 or 9 episodes it really picks up).

Marisa has made other noteable AMVs, this one played at AX last year and this one makes Witch Hunter Robin look more action-tastic than it actually is.

Did you miss Anime Boston? Never been to an anime convention? You can listen to some past panel recordings and policy thingies and such on the Anime Boston Podcast or you can listen to some of Anime Pulse’s panel recordings.

Other crap we talked about:

Show #015 – Onnafest 2005

Show #015 Direct Download:

froglartbge didn’t even go to this con, but hopefully he’ll write show notes soon.

Onnafest 2005 was held in the Gateway Hilton, in Newark, NJ from October 8-10th. It took me forever to getting around to editing this. Onnafest has a podcast which interviews some of the same guests I did with a better microphone set up – they even interview Yours Truly.

Kakashi’s blog can be found here.

Show #006 – The Last of the Otakon 2005 Coverage

Show #006 Direct Download:

The final bit of Otakon Coverage, I thought we had reviewed Steam although it turns out we didn’t.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is available in anime and manga forms in the U.S.

NonDE Studios – makers of “This is Otakudom” and “Steam: The Movie” [you can’t download it anywhere, but you can watch these commercials for team EVIL, they’re pretty good, and it’s like a preview] – “That Guy” is actually Scott Melzner
Seirra Mist, “Yeah, it’s kinda like that.”

Brief mention of Dragon Half, which is actually really funny and you should totally watch it. It’s also only two episodes, so don’t be fooled by Alison’s mention of a non-existant third episode.

We complain about the Kaiju vs. Final Fantasy Film again.

Alison accidently calls it “Kaiba Big Battle,” which is pretty funny. Also you should read this amusing article from the Savage Love column about a high school girl’s love of Kaiba. My reaction: Your friend won’t find someone as hot and rich as Kaiba in her high school – but a Kaiba cosplayer could totally happen!

The “Inu Yasha is a biiiooooooooooootch” email:

The Prince of Tennis, the fake final episode fan parody. I don’t know a page for this parody, but if you know one, let me know.

Eyeshield 21 – the American Football anime and manga.

La Blue Girl – it’s not anime for a first date, but you could watch it with your boyfriend. (If you’re Alison, anyhow.)
