PODCAST: SMOKING IN THE BOYZ ROOM
Babymetal, anime apartheid and MazandaRanting in our 25th podcast.
Jeremy “Care in the Community” Graves is joined by Manga UK’s Jerome “Twitter Hijacker” Mazandarani and Product Manager Andrew “Mr Manga” Hewson, and special guest Stuart Ashen, star of Ashens and the Quest for the Gamechild, out now. Not sure any of those names will stick.
00:00 It’s that music again.
01:30 Where the hell have we been? Jerome’s adventures in Tokyo and the new shows that have got the rights-buyers talking.
03:40 Visiting the Toei Animation studios, and their questionable decorating choices.
05:00 Stuart Ashen at the MCM Expo. The winners of our cosplay competition. The vidfest experience, and a bunch of other things happening at Comicon. How much more can it expand when they’ve broken six figures?
12:00 Ashens and the Quest for the Gamechild, its genesis and proliferation. The politics of crowdfunding independent movies and swapping staff like Pokemon cards.
