Do not avert your eyes anymore, heathen. Let the divine light of Matayoshi cleanse you of your heretic ways.
Shootin' The Breeze
More Japanese were on the list than any other nationality in "The top 10 most bizarre people".
Mitsuo Matayoshi is by far, my favourite!
Alex brings to my attention, the terrible "slavery" news item about Child slavery in rural China. You can check it out, here.
Like fantasy? Like Sci-Fi? Like Chocobo's? Well so does Lorlandchain! And what a skilled individual, also hailing from China.

An absolute master artist! Our collective hats go off to you, sir!
Gundam is back, and now gayer than ever. Bottom line: Will be most popular Gundam "Like'Eva!".
Look at these beautiful, pretty young stallions:
Now for the real "wankin'" material!
Alex then goes into a passionate rant about "The good ol' days of Mecha design" (Most likely scaring off what little female audience we have)
Here's Alex's ideal Mecha:
Nova is in the "poo" again!
Watcher Angel raises our podcast "above the rabble" with her always wonderful e-mails which always bring up wonderful points for discussion.
We also get our very first "voice message" from "GeneralBeefy", who asked us if we knew anything about "The Cockpit".
You're in for a treat GeneralBeefy, I do own the Cockpit and I am also in the process of obtaining a high quality subbed version which I shall review and post in the near future. (Yes, post the video for download!)
ZombieToaster, a chum of mine from the Heart Of Madness forums, makes Alex's day with the mention of the Russian version of "War & Peace".
Review: Aura Battler Dunbine
Probably the most epic review yet; a whopping 49 episodes long, this TV comes from Yoshiyuki Tomino, the "Father" of Gundamn.
It's difficult to sum up this review in words, suffice to say, this is the "Andromeda" of anime; A Fantastic first half utterly ruined by studio intervention, however unlike Andromeda, the last episode is pretty darn awesome. Tomino (Suffering from depression at the time) gives us a real "SCREW YOU, EVERYBODY!" ending, with tragedy only surpassed by Space Runaway Ideaon. (Also by Tomino).
Also notable for being the first Mecha show to combine fantasy elements.
It's a wrap!
Coming up, an "experimental" Anime Pacific Special: Tales From Asia...Woooooooooooo! (Cue Ed Wood-esque Sci-Fi music)
