The domain I share kind of got hacked by Nigerians, so we’re sort of down at the moment. I don’t have a new show ready yet anyway.
Thanks to everyone who showed up at our panels at AnimeNext! They were a huge hit!
Otaku USA issue seven comes out real soon, and I have two reviews and a bio in it, so be sure to check out my “Otaku Top Five”!
Otakon Announcement Direct Download:
Daryl and some weirdo have taken the time to record audio of my previous news entry.
According to Daryl, OtakuGeneration is not recording a show at all, so you really have no reason to miss our panel… except Harry Potter.
Noah and I are going to Otakon!
Please visit our table in artist’s alley, which we are sharing with the intrepid Ali Wildgoose. It’s table #D6. Our names are not on the table. It’s located along the wall to your left when you walk in the entrance, about halfway back. We’re selling Ninja Consultant T-shirts, “I survived the filler arc” tees, and Carl Horn buttons.
Friday night at 11:00 we’re hosting the “Podcaster’s Roundtable” panel in the Panel 2 room. This conflicts with Otaku Generation recording a live show at the same time, and also the end of the AMV contest, AND the “Alcohol & Anime” panel, but we expect you to show up to our panel anyway. Also on our “Podcaster’s Roundtable” panel will be Gerald from Anime World Order, Dave and Joel from Fast Karate for the Gentleman, Mike from R5 Central, and Rym and Scott from Geek Nights, with a potential surprise appearance from the Rangercast.
The Otakon schedule is available here, but please double check for schedule changes in case our time slot totally moves.
Hey! We’re going to be at New York Comic Con this weekend, although we won’t have a table, and we’re not going to be in the podcast alley (which we didn’t know existed until last week), but Erin will be attending most/all of the manga panels, and Noah will be around sometimes too.
You can listen to recordings of many of the panels on the mangacast podcast – subscribe here and Ed will have those recordings up really soon.
Also we’re going to the Popcultureshock.com after-party on Saturday, which is free:
PopCultureShock’s 2nd Annual After-Party
Saturday, February 24th @ Slate Plus
54 W. 21st St. (between 5th & 6th Ave.)
Doors open at 10pm
Oh, we started recording one. It’s all about our trip to Japan… but then two hours later Audacity crashed, and crashed hard. Beta version indeed…
Just in time for end-of-season cons like MangaNext, Nan Desu Kan, SITACon, YaoiCon, and AnimeUSA it’s Ninja Consultant Anime Con Bingo! Erin drew the pretty pictures and Patrick D wrote the spiffy code. He’s vidcasting the Chibi Project pretty soon now, by the way.
Here are some sample spaces:
This entry is just to point out that I updated the biography section of the webpage. It contains cool art by Zack (of the famous Lifemeter Comis site), and humorous biographies written by Noah. Oh wait, not humorous – dead serious. I really am the president of New South Wales for all you know.
I finally broke down and bought Skype voicemail, so now those of you who live in other countries and/or are high school students without cell phones can call us at any time and leave ridiculous long-winded messages. Our Skype name is, predictably “Ninjaconsultant”, and maybe I will even log into Skype occasionally and talk to people:
I finally remembered to sign us up for a free voicemail service.
So call us up, (“It’s free if you call from work!” – TMBG) and tell us what you love about the Ninja Consultant Show so I can write a better promo. Like a 30 second promo. So say in 5 seconds why you like our show. Or just call us to bug us.
