Show #84 – Walter Amos on Hetalia

Show #084 – Direct Download:

OP: “Johnny Be Good” as sung by the Sex Pistols on the album The Great Rock and Roll Swindle
ED: Hetalia end theme as sung by America

Recorded at Genericon 2011. Posted with the permission of Walter Amos. Mr. Amos describes how anime has gotten high school girls into one of his favorite historical topics, the Prussian Empire.

We all learned a lot about Frederick the Great, who was totally amazing and probably gay. He had a terraformed garden like Nausicaa’s, popularized the potato to help keep German people from starving, composed flute sonatas, and did tons of other great stuff socially and economically which you’ll hear about in Amos’s amazing lecture.

Panel Description:  In an effort to initiate a US branch of the ZeroAka Dojo, Vertical Inc. has collected a brain trust of the brightest and most respected manga bloggers and journalists on the East Coast to discuss manga culture. But there is a catch! This is not your average panel. This is a moderated discussion covering a wide range of manga topics from politics and ethics to the industry and its fans. This is not a democratic, everyone gets equal time, panel. This is a public forum where the best voices of manga share their knowledge and views honestly and openly.

Has manga criticism reached new heights? Or are our manga literati still in the dark ages? Join journalists, podcasters, bloggers, industry insiders and manga academics as they reveal why manga your fandom originates and always comes back to manga!

Warning: Unedited Audio
Note: I totally bomb the first question. Instead of “Bestselling” I just went for “Best”.
